Product Description

  • Red French Wine
  • Here on the limestone and schist slopes of the Corbières mountains, cool winds temper the power of the sun. That's why the wine is so well balanced, combining terrific fruitness with a vigour worthy of the great vintages. On this very special terroir, the Syrah, Grenache and Carignan vines, picked by hand, dig deep into the rocky land. This terroir conceives rich, mouthwatering wines which owe more to the natural aromas of the garrigue than to oenological pretensions. This great wine is redolent of red fruits and spice, it's very open and creamy, delightfully long. Drink now at 16ºC (60ºF) with duck breast or grilled beef steak. If you're patient, lay it down for a few years it will be just right with meat in sauces or well matured cheese.

History

  • On the plateau of the Hautes Corbières, all Castelmaure's 169 inhabitants are grape producers or their children. All share a common passion. Founded in 1921, the Cave d'Embres et Castelmaure reflects the dynamism that produces wines of great finesse with splendid aromatic qualities. Each of the 760 land parcels is individually supervised, the most modern techniques are used in the vinification process. The 25 year old partnership between Jeanjean and Castelmaure has created one of Corbières great names.

Regional Information

  • Castelmaure, a very special terroir The village nestles high in the Hautes Corbières, at an altitude that encourages true southern elegance. Geologically the arid soil is based on black schist and limestone which means harvesting has to be by hand. The Castelmaure plateau is made up of : - Alluvial sediment (fruitiness, aromatic complexity) - Hard Jurassic Hettengian era limestone (power) - Black and grey schist ( finesse, mineral qualities).
