Region

The region of Corbières lies within the western Languedoc, stretching from Carcassonne to Narbonne and the Mediterranean coast. It produces distinct red wines, blended around the Carignan grape variety, with a whiff of the wild herb scent of the Languedoc garrigue.

Producer

Owned by Louis Fabre, this excellent estate near Beziers, in the southern Languedoc, benefits from the Meditarranean climate. Recent investment, cold fermentation and good vinification produce aromatic and spicy wines with remarkable finesse.
Tasting Notes
Pale lemon in colour with green highlights. A nose of boxwood, grapefruit and a touch of exotic fruits. On the palate, the mouthfeel is lively and expressive with notes of elderflower, white grapefruit, pineapple and passion fruit. A zesty citrus acidity balances the aromatic nature of the wine which finishes with a flinty, mineral note.
Food
Perfect with oysters and shellfish.
