The Bories family have been making wine in Corbières since 1896 and owns some of the oldest vines in Languedoc. They are dedicated to produce wines that reflect the changing nature of a vintage, without trying to adulterate them by using techniques that tend to standardise the wines produced.
Made with 45% Carignan, 20% Grenache, 25% Mourvèdre and 10% Syrah this wine was matured for 12 months in oak barrels (30% new). Intense nose with blackcurrant and cacao aromas and liquorice notes. Full bodied and very ripe on the palate with good concentration of fruits and velvety tannins well balanced with the acidity. Good length.
Savoury, herbaceous garrigue herbs on the nose with hints of spice and black pepper. Firm tannins on the palate but very fresh with soft, concentrated dark (slightly stewed) fruit and leather flavours. Very long with excellent ageing potential.- 95 pts Decanter World Wine Awards
