Appellation Corbieres Controlee
Fullbodied, powerful red wine, with aromas of Garrigue, fresh red fruits. In the scent and taste you will find mainly fresh and ripe red fruits and a subtle spicyness. It has a lot of structure and an after taste that stays for long. A great glass of red wine, that goes wonderful with good meat, pasta dishes and cheeses.
Made of the classic Corbières blend: Carrignan, Grenache, Mourvedre and Syrah. A strict selection of handpicked grapes. The grapes are transferred to one and two year old oak barrels, that were previously used for the Grande Reserve. The wines will ripen for 1 year in these barrels and then they are bottled. The flower on the label of this wine a wild Orchid, which links to the authentic botanic garden of the Marquis de Saint Félix. In those days the garden was well known.
