A classic Languedoc blend of Syrah, Mourvèdre and Grenache, this is a gloriously indulgent and well-balanced example of what Corbières AOC has to offer. It has a beautiful, attention-grabbing nose, complex layers of ripe black cherries and wild blackberries giving way to a more savoury edge of eucalyptus leaves and white pepper. It’s long and lingering on the palate, equally as complex with friendly, approachable tannins that make themselves known without being overwhelming. A fabulous food wine which would go perfectly with a traditional Languedoc cassoulet.
Meaty. Savoury, goji berries, plums with a tart skin, slightly herbal and slightly ashy – in a good way. Lifting, intensifying acidity. A bit wild but so fresh and tangy – a strong tamarind flavour with all its earthy tangy citric wonder builds towards the finish. Lovely tannins, as if whittled from a piece of wood. 16.5 (2018 - 2023)
