Tasting Notes

This balance of grape varieties provides a perfect expression of the Minervois appellation. The wine is aged in French oak barrels for 12 months.

With its deep red hue and violet glints, Domaine de L’Ostal Estibals offers notes of scrubland, morello cherries and red fruits. On the palate, the attack is full and smooth with well-marked tannins and a touch of oakiness.

The bronze disc on the label brings to mind the warm and sun-drenched character of wines from Minervois.

Domaine de L’Ostal

In the heart of the village of La Livinière, at the foot of the «Montagne Noire», Jean-Michel Cazes discovered an exceptional terroir and created Domaine de L’Ostal estate in a protected environment, among green oaks and cypress trees.
Careful selection allows a retention of only 30% of the production of the estate to develop the Grand Vin du Domaine de L’Ostal, the potentiel coming close to 50%.
In the ancient Oc language, «ostal» denotes both the family group and the house where they live.

The terroir

Vineyard planted on the hillside on a homogeneous plot thanks to its south-facing exposure. Soil made up of a mosaic of shallow marly surfaces over chalky sandstone.
