Les Planels

If you take the Chemin des Planels, you will walk along vertically-stepped dry stone walls. These walls, typical of La Livinière, serve to mitigate the erosive effects of water and maintain the soil on the terraces where the “Les Planels” Syrah grapes have been grown for over 35 years. Surrounded by pine trees, the vineyard receives ample exposure to the sun and imparts to this vintage generosity and a good structure whose intensity is felt even in its aroma. This vintage fully expresses the typical La Livinière terroir.

Taste : Thyme, rosemary, some menthol notes, a touch of lavender, this aromatic bouquet propels you into the heart of the vine. In the mouth, this sunny wine communicates over the full length of the tongue: a bouquet of already complex aromas with some notes of sautéed black cherries, blackcurrant, licorice, pepper and cold meats. Dark purple color. Rich, full-bodied, yet elegant and seamless, with an impressive texture. An integrated acidity and a beautiful elegance, making you come back to the glass. Aging potential: 7-10 years. Grape Varieties: Syrah & Grenache (15% max). Link to certificates
