Domaine Lignères Mourvedre Blend Corbières las Vals 2003

Member Review by jtryka:

The wine itself is a deep purple color in the glass, and the nose exhibits scents of mint, ripe plums and blueberries and a good bit of earthiness, perhaps a hint of truffle. The fruit was pleasant at the outset, with some chewy plum and black cherry flavors, there were some spice notes and a bit of cinnamon midpalate. The tannins were very subdued, making for not much of a finish, though it was still pleasant.

Domaine Lignères:
The story of Famille Lignères is the story of a medical family with wine in their veins. André (a general practitioner) and Suzette (a pharmacist), are now able to take a back seat as their sons Jean (Doctor of the village of Moux like his father before him) and his wife Anne, Paul (a dentist) and Geneviève (a biologist) look after the estate.

The story of Famille Lignères is the story of a medical family with wine in their veins. André (a general practitioner) and Suzette (a pharmacist), are now able to take a back seat as their sons Jean (Doctor of the village of Moux like his father before him) and his wife Anne, Paul (a dentist) and Geneviève (a biologist) look after the estate. Our family's ties to the wine world can be traced back to the sixteenth century, but it was in 1957 that André and Suzette Lignères bought the estate. André's parents were from Moux and Fontcouverte, the two villages on either side of the estate and already had vineyards in both villages as well as a négociant business in Moux. Since then they have gradually expanded the domaine, acquiring the most attractive terroirs bordering on the estate, particularly Las Vals, which was acquired in the eighties. Throughout this period the assistance of Marc Dubernet was invaluable in helping develop the family's wines. Read less

This is a great find at BevMo for $15 bucks for a 2003 vintage, retail value is about $34. This is a medium bodied wine was a delicious everyday wine for the price. I love this blend of carignan with 20% GSM. Great mouthful of juicy plum and cherry, soft tannin. Probably won't get better with more aging. Drink now.
