2014 Corbieres Rouge (Gasparets, Chateau)
Chateau Gasparets, Corbieres Rouge, Languedoc, France 2014Carignan, Grenache, Syrah EARTHY, DARK RED FRUITS & FRENCH HERBS Since 1771, Gasparets has been producing fantastic Corbieres. This is a particularly dark one with sweet red fruit, vanilla, clove and essence of garrigue (wild herbs). The vineyards are way up high and very rocky lending to a style that shows black tar and earth under the fruit. Short time aging in oak barrels adds the smoke; all together you get a dynamic, friendly red with polished fruit and amazing drinkability. Serving Suggestion: Heavy finger foods, stuffed mushrooms, cheese fondue, chicken in barbecue sauce.
