Our 2015 Corbierès has a 60% content from the first free-run juices of our Montirat domaine (bought in the same year). It evolves gradually, as the domaine is located in a high-altitude terroir (250 metres) at the edge of the continental Corbierès appellation (Terroir de Serviès in the Val de Dagne). The remaining 40% comes from the Boutenac terroir (Crus de Boutenac). The wine is crimson in colour and its nose is powerfully evocative of ethereal spices and citrus fruit notes. On the palate, the wine is taut and elegant, with a subtle, silky grain. A delicate blend of maturity and freshness brings with it notes of juniper and cistus. The overall balance of this wine is very promising and it deserves several years’ ageing in order to be at its best.
