Château de Cesseras Minervois la Livinière 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Chateau de Cesseras is one of the most celebrated names in this relatively new and increasingly successful appellation; the first cru with a cru as it were, and the blueprint for an entire qualitative system in the Languedoc.<br/><br/> <br/><br/> Pierre André Ournac blends 70% of Syrah with 10% each of Carignan, Grenache and Mourvèdre and ages the assemblage in a combination of 40% tank and 60% barrique, a small percent of which is new. The wine is polished, rich and hedonistic, with creamy black fruits and plenty of spicy weight.<br/><br/><br/><br/>The Livinière often excels in wine competitions, such is its plush and extravagent attack, but beyond this, especially in a relatively tannic vintage such as 2007, there is real weight and harmonious balance. Great with game and any roasted meat dish<br/><br/><strong>(Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer)</strong>
