L'Oustal Blanc Minervois la Liviniere 2003

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/111799 for only £1 although I also had to pay a delivery charge.The Minervois appellation was created in 1985,although viticulture here goes back to at least the Romans,for red,rose and white wines from 61 communes at the western end of the Languedoc region between Carcassonne and Narbonne.In 1998 6 of those communes around the village of La Liviniere got a separate appellation for red wines only of a higher quality.L'Oustal Blanc is a small producer in this area.My bottle consists of 60% grenache and 40% syrah and was aged in oak barrels.I started my bottle last night with my supper of chiken kiev.There is plenty of a blackberry,bramble and plum style fruit with some well structured tannins.In short this is a nice wine that went well with the chicken kiev.
