Domaine Lignères Red Blend Vin de Pays d'Hauterive Cabanon de Pascal 2003

External Review by WineExpress.com:

This wine is a three way blend of Carignan, Mourvedre and Syrah, all from a single vineyard in the South of France. This family run estate has roots going back to the 16th century. Toady the winemaking is state of the art and over seen by renowned Tuscan wine consultant Stefano Chioccioli. His experience with warm climate viticulture is applied here to great success with these robust Rhone varietals. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 92 points and wrote “boasts a delicious combination of Carignan’s cinnamon spice, Mourvèdre’s dark, plumy fruit and Syrah’s savory notes”. Limited.

Domaine Lignères:
The story of Famille Lignères is the story of a medical family with wine in their veins.

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
