Chateau Faiteau, Cuvee Gaston Minervois La Liviniere 2015
Syrah 70%, Carignan 15%, Grenache 15%
Minervois in the western Languedoc has long been a great value region for reds based on Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre. This cuvee has many of the same characteristics of a good Chateauneuf but in an extra juicy, approachable package. Robe: sustained, garnet. Bouquet: dense and complex, cocoa, floral, spicy, and fruity Aromas: beautiful ensemble concentrated and complex with three wine varietals complimenting each other. Smooth, dense tannins. One can find spices and macerated fruits along with notes of mocha and coffee grains. Best decanted, or open the bottle two hours before serving.
Selection is done in the vineyard and at the winery. The grapes are transported to the winery in 1000 kg containers. This wine is the result of the combination of two vinifications: alcoholic and malolactic. Vinified with destemmed grapes and a 15 day vatting. During fermentation we punch down and during the vatting we alternate between punch-downs and pump-overs. The malolactic fermentation takes place in barrels. The wine is aged in barrels (100%) for 12 months
