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.
Carbonic maceration for the Carignan, low temperature pre-fermentation maceration for the Grenache and Syrah. Thermo-regulated alcoholic fermentation. Matured in vats with added oxygen before bottling.
Eye: Beautiful red color with purple hue.
Nose: Delicate wine with garrigue aromas.
Palate: Open, creamy, ends long. Well balanced.
To enjoy it young, we advise opening and letting it breathe for a few minutes before serving. Drink with red meats and cheese.
