Domaine Combe Blanche

The story of his life should read “teacher”. But the call of the sun and the desire for something different were stronger than the rest, and Guy Vanlancker left rainy Belgium as soon as he had his diploma to establish his destiny in a superb vineyard in La Livinière, the first appellation village in the Languedoc (1999). Twelve hectares are under production, including eight in the AOC Minervois La Livinière and Minervois. His cellar, which lies right at the heart of the village, is surrounded by thick walls from old fortifications. With his son Ambroise, who now works with him, Guy Vanlancker has embarked upon an organic certification process for the vineyard (label expected for 2021).

Calamiac Terroir 

The Calamiac Terroir plots lie on the slopes of La Livinière. Guy Vanlancker makes the various different grape varieties into wine separately, without adding yeast, using thermo-regulated tanks. The wine is also matured in tanks. Seven thousand bottles of this cuvée were produced.

   Ruby-coloured robe with purplish glints.

   A little wild on the nose, dominated by blackberry and blueberry.

   Fresh and fruity in the mouth with a fine, aromatic length (liquorice, a hint of pepper). Tannins still a little lively.

   Enjoyable with grilled red meat. 

   16-17°C.

Un très chouette "vin de copains"

Très belle découverte en Minervois. Il est conseillé de le carafer ou de l'aérer pour qu'il libère son plein potentiel d'arômes.

    Bel équilibre

    Un mélange de 4 cépages bien original, bien équilibre, assez long en bouche et avec juste ce qu'il faut de tanins
