About:  Domaine Lignères Lathenay is located in Siran, in the heart of Minervois, close to Minerve which gave its name to this area. East from Carcassonne this family Estate grows on 18 hectares premium vineyards of Syrah, Cinsault, Carignan and Mourvèdre. Once part of the local cooperative, the Estate withdrew by steps to produce and bottle its own cuvees. Frédéric Lignères, the owner, waived the use of chemical fertilizers in 2010 and crafts powerful, yet subtle Crus of Minervois and Minervois la Livinière. He built a buried cellar in 2015-2016, where he can work his harvest by gravity, with as little transfers and pumping as possible. The other advantage is obviously a temperature naturally controlled, definitely a plus in the South. The main part of his vineyards is spread around the cellar. The varietals are : Grenache, Cinsault and Carignan, 40 to 90 years old. Syrah and Mourvèdre, 10 to 25 years old.

Hand harvesting for Carignan, mechanical for Syrah and Mourvèdre. Varietals are vinified separately grapes are destemmed, crushed and then fermented in vat for three weeks. The vats undergo daily punching of the cap and pumping over. The vats are then left to mature for four months before assemblage around February.

There is a hint of black cherry and spice, menthol and herbs, It has long silky tannins, delicious!
