Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Medium ruby red, the nose shows stewed dark fruit, dark cherry, and clove. Full bodied, the palate is rich and luscious with sweet dark berries and baking spice. Enjoy 2015-2020. 90 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
This Mediterranean blend made by winemaker Jean-Michel Cages is aged for 15 months in oak barrels. Vines are planted at the foot of the Montagne Noire on hillsides with a terroir of sandstone. The 2011 vintage of the Minervois La Liviniere Grand Vin is a red wine blend of 90% Syrah and 10% Grenache grapes. The wine was matured for 15 months in oak barrels. - Community Wine Reviews
