Clos d`Ora Gerard Bertrand 2016
Clos d’Ora is a special plot of limestone and marl soils set within the Laville Bertrou estate in AOC Minervois La Livinière singled out by Gérard Bertrand in the year 2000 as having exceptional qualities. The backbone of this wine is provided by Syrah with the addition of Grenache, Mourvedre and Carignan and all fruit comes from biodynamically cultivated vines. This is an immensely full-bodied and flamboyant wine, with remarkable levels of natural intensity but intriguing inner complexity. Still a touch too young to be broached, this will require at least another 2-3 years of cellaring.
