Winemaker Notes

Deep garnet in color, this wine offers currant and boysenberry fruit flavors edged by white pepper, cured meat and dried herb details. On the palate, its tanins are mature, subtle and intense. The black fruit aromas are an invitation to a persistent depth.

Best served with grilled beef.

Critical Acclaim

RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Gerard Bertrand's icon project is the Clos d'Ora, a biodynamically farmed nine-hectare estate. The 2015 Minervois la Liviniere Clos d'Ora is a blend of the region's four grapes, aged a year in oak and another year in bottle prior to release. It's certainly the most supple and creamy-textured of the 2015s from Bertrand, marrying red berries seamlessly with hints of coffee-tinged oak and resiny notes of native garrigue. Although full-bodied and undeniably ripe (the alcohol is 15.5% but there's no heat), it's far from monolithic, showcasing complexity and elegance rather than brute power. I've been deliberately conservative with my aging estimate because of the wine's lack of track record and relatively young vine age in the Syrah and Mourvèdre components, but I wouldn't be surprised to see it drink well for longer.

Wine Spectator
A generous, suave red, with supple layers of cherry reduction and raspberry filling detailed with floral, melted chocolate and anise accents. Beams of mineral and floral impart depth to the velvety finish. Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Carignan. Drink now through 2026.

Minervois La Liviniere

View all products

Granted its own appellation within Minervois in the Languedoc region of France, Minervois-La Livinière takes its name from ‘cella vinaria,’ Latin for ‘wine cellar.’ In the hilly northern end of Minervois, the altitude and dense, rocky limestone soils of La Liviniere produce quality red Rhône Blends made from Syrah, Mourvedre, Grenache and Carignan.

Rhône Blends

View all products

With bold fruit flavors and accents of sweet spice, red Rhône blends originated from France’s southern Rhône Valley. Grenache, supported by Syrah and Mourvèdre typically form the base of the blend, while Carignan, Cinsault and Counoise often come in to play. With some creative interpretation, Rhône blends have also become popular in Priorat, Washington, Australia and California.

In the Glass

The taste profile of a Rhône blend will vary according to its individual components, as each variety brings something different to the glass. Grenache is the lightest in color but contributes plenty of ripe red fruit and a plush texture. Syrah supplies dark fruit flavors, along with savory, spicy and earthy notes. Mourvèdre is responsible for a floral perfume and earthy flavor as well as structure and a healthy dose of color. New World examples tend to be fruit-forward in style, while those from the Old World will often have more earth, structure and herbal components on top of ripe red and blue fruit.

Perfect Pairings

Rhône red blends typically make for very food-friendly wines. These can work with a wide variety of meat-based dishes, playing equally well with beef, pork, lamb or game. Braised beef cheeks, grilled steak or sausages, roasted pork and squab are all fine pairings.

Sommelier Secret

Some regions like to put their own local spin on the red Rhône blend—for example, in Australia’s Barossa Valley, Shiraz is commonly blended with Cabernet Sauvignon to add structure, tannin and a long finish. Grenache-based blends from Priorat often include Carignan (known locally as Cariñena) and Syrah, but also international varieties like Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. In California, anything goes, and it is not uncommon to see Petite Sirah make an appearance.
