  • Gold, Gilbert & Gaillard International Competition, 2021

This gorgeous, warm fruit, herbal spice Corbières is a worthy Gold medal winner. It's from an amazing 12th century estate, where the vineyards are perfectly sited on steep, stony slopes so yields are tiny. Intense with real southern French flavour.

There are documents showing that wine was made at this beautiful property as early as 1172, when it belonged to Ermengarde, Countess of Narbonne. We don’t know the exact style and quality then, but today it is exemplary – Corbières at its sensuous best! The estate has been in the same family now since 1803 – seven generations of women and now Guillaume Allien, the eighth generation. Despite being in his final year as a medical student, Guillaume gave it all up to restore the family estate and learn winemaking. He works with consultant Gilles Dejean to make this luscious, dark fruited red, which speaks clearly of its stony soils, the herbal scented garrigue and its Corbières provenance. A warming red that’s perfect for a rich casserole.

"A beautiful wine. Full yet smooth on the palate, excellent with meat or just to drink on it's own." Online Review
