Il reste quelques bouteilles à la Dépôt de cet excellent Minervois. Un vin au frut très pur, certes riche et capiteux, mais à l'équilibre impressionnant. Un superbe pirate pour une dégustation de Châteauneuf...

Wine Advocate,
The L’Oustal 2007 Minervois La Liviniere Prima Donna is 40% Syrah (required by law for this sub-appellation, and here aged in new barriques), and around half Grenache (from centenarian vines, and vinified in upright demi-muids), with the Syrah receiving a bit of treatment at the hands of “Doc’ Carignan.” The estate’s highest-elevation parcels in pure Marne clay-limestone are favored, so as to achieve a well-balanced and, while ample, never a heavy wine. Black raspberry preserves, sandalwood, and chocolate-covered, cinnamondusted almonds are principle themes here, and indeed the goal of enormous ripeness along with lift and persistent refreshment has been strikingly achieved. Texturally, this is about as plush, creamy, and refined as any young wine I have tasted from the Languedoc, which
reinforces its milk chocolate, marzipan, and jam-like richness. At the same time, there is meaty depth here and a lip-smacking salinity, exuberant freshness, and invigorating vivacity that simply carry you away in the finish. I wouldn’t worry about how long to hold it – though surely a decade won’t be too long – I would just concentrate on getting some of this into your cellar!

Je suis un big fan d'Oustal !!! J'ai du 2005-2006 en cave, et dégusté à 3 reprises, 3 notes parfaites, et oui...mais je note subjectivement ! J'ADORE ce vin.
