Our Corbières 2014 is a little different to previous vintages, due to the introduction of Mourvèdre in the blend. Ruby-red robe, with subtle aromas of spice, pepper and liquorice, and a hint of forest floor. Mouth-filling yet poised, with expressive tannins, this is a good example of well-balanced Corbières wine (unlike some of the more rustic expressions that can be found within this appellation). Notes of black fruit, a hint of truffle and a clean, elegant finish bode well for its ageing potential.
