MINERVOIS LA LIVINIERE
Intensely purple in colour, with an opulent, but perfectly balanced nose of summer fruit such as strawberry and blackcurrant but also plum, finishing on softly spicy notes and the fragrance of truffle and mocha. The first palate is particularly harmonious with silky tannins. Lovely notes of truffle, black olive tapenade, boxwood and black fruit create a pleasing aromatic intensity underlined by a magnificently fresh peppermint finish. With its polish and elegance, this wine perfectly expresses the atypical terroir of the vineyards at altitude of La Livinière
