This elegant offering from Gerard Bertrand is chalk full of herbs, leather and dark red fruits with lengthy tannins. Anise, black fruit and tobacco are sensed mid-palate, while a slightly smoky finish adds immense complexity.

"The first vintage to be released, the 2012 Minervois la Liviniere Clos d'Ora is still going strong. There's a meaty, savory edge to the nose, adding nuance to the black olive aromas. Full-bodied and more concentrated than the 2013 or 2014, and more harmonious than the 2013, the blackberry, cola and spice flavors come together magnificently on the long, velvety finish." -JC, 7/11/19
