Lorgeril Launches La Liviniere

Domaine de la Borie Blanche, Terroirs d'Altitude 2007 from leading Languedoc producer Lorgeril's Minervois estate is now available from Majestic at RRP £9.99.

A family-run business founded in 1620, Lorgeril spreads its vinous wings over six owned Domaines in the Languedoc-Roussillon, with Domaine de la Borie Blanche added to the fold in 1999.

All of Lorgeril's vineyards are planted on cool hillside locations at high altitudes as owners Nicolas and Miren de Lorgeril believe this is key to producing ripe, yet fresh and elegant wines in a hot, dry region.  The 29 hectare Domaine de la Borie Blanche estate lies partly in the La Livinière AOP 'causse' - a schist and limestone plateau - with vineyards planted between 250 - 350 metres altitude.  The climate here is fully Mediterranean, but the majestic Montagne Noire backdrop helps temper the heat of the day and allows the grapes to ripen slowly.
