Castelmaure Corbieres, a fabulous Languedoc red at a good price

castelmaure corbieres

Really like this wine. Lots of personality, some elegance, and a haunting perfume – and at a good price, too. It’s from a co-op working in partnership with Jean Jean, and it just works.

Saint-Félix de Castelmaure Corbières 2010 Languedoc, France
13.5% alcohol. Ripe and beautifully framed, with a floral, meaty cherry and plum fruit nose that is fine and expressive. The palate shows sweet cherry and berry fruit but also a nice savoury character that is peppery with some olive notes, and some grippy tannin on the finish. Beautifully judged. 90/100 (£8.49 Averys)
