Brand's Heritage

Lionel Osmin & Cie started out with just a group of friends with the same keen passion, with the same love for wines from the South West. Then they had an idea to achieve what nobody had ever done before: to create a quality wine-broking house based on South Western wines following the example of other regions such as Burgundy or the Rhône.
 

With that founding principle, Lionel Osmin & Co was therefore created under the leadership of Lionel boasting the discovery of the unique wines and vineyards of this region.

From Jurançon to Cahors, from Gaillac to Bergerac, passing through Marcillac, Lionel Osmin & Co has become the sole transversal signature of the wines from the South West and their vineyards whose secrets which are yet to be discovered!


The result is a range of wines whose characteristics are faithful to the region and which are made to share the joy of discovering the vines and wines that are enjoyed and loved.


Discovery, novelty and above all conviviality are probably the best adjectives to describe these wines from the South West which we are presenting to you to taste.

The Key Influences 

 
Lionel Osmin La Reserve 
Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Lionel Osmin aimed to produce a dry white wine with scents of exotic fruits to pair perfectly with a range of foods: from aperitif to all fish-based meals. On the nose, citrus aromas (tangerines/lime) and exotic fruit (lychees/mango) dominate. A light and soft wine yet rich in the mouth, the Lionel Osmin La Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2016 remains crisp and fruity as it returns to citrus zest flavours on the finish.

Enjoy this beautiful white wine very chilled as an aperitif. This will also beautifully accompany grilled fish, sushi, seafood or goat cheese

Testimonies

Wine Enthusiast – 86 points

“This is a smooth, ripe style of Sauvignon Blanc. It hints at mango and pineapple as well as more crisply citrus fruit and shows an herbal, green fruit character on the finish. Drink now.”

Lionel Osmin Villa La Vie En Rose 2016

The Lionel Osmin Villa La Vie en Rose is a pale rose wine with fresh red berries and fruit drops on the nose. Full and refreshing on the palate, the acidity and richness of this rosé brings out the very pleasant aromatic range. For this wine, cold fermentation is guided to optimize the juices' aromatic potential. Aging is reduced to a strict minimum and early bottling guarantees the fruit's purity. Its pale, delicate colour, its very fruity, expressive style and its characteristically refreshing nature makes this rosé a polyvalent and festive wine.

 

This wine goes perfectly with aperitifs, tapas, Asian cuisine, tomato-based dishes, grilled fish dishes, red berry desserts and the like.

Wine Enthusiast – 85 points

“Made from the Négrette grape found in Fronton near Toulouse, this wine has a light structure to balance its dry acidity and citrus crispness. It's packed with clean, forward red currant fruit, ready to drink now.”

Lionel Osmin La Reserve Malbec 2015

The Lionel Osmin La Reserve Malbec 2015 has a dark, deep colour, with pleasant aromas of red fruits, black fruits and China ink. Woody notes as observed as well, recalling juniper, nutmeg or cedar wood. This wine has a full, sumptuous mouth aroma, with silky tannins, and a flavorful finish.

 

This wine is a great accompaniment with cured pork meats, poultry, steak tartare, stuffed vegetables, roasted and grilled meats, pork chops, veal chops, mutton chops, beef rib steak, meats with sauce, soft cheeses, etc.
