2016 Corbières Selection, Château Vieux Parc, Corbières

£14.25 inc. VAT

A cracking Corbières that is a superb example of some of the wonderful wine produced in the region.

A blend of 40/40 Carignan (from vines 40-100 years old) and Syrah plus 10% each of Grenache and Mourvédre. A deep, rich nose of plum, black cherry and nuances of black olive and vanilla. Rich and rewarding on the palate with a nice balance of fruit and spicy oak. Very long finish. A youthful wine that has plenty of years maturing left.

Look no further than a leg of lamb served pink.

Description

A cracking Corbières that is a superb example of some of the wonderful wine produced in the region.

Château du Vieux Parc has been in the Mialhe and Panis family for six generations, but it wasn’t until relatively recently, in the 1960s, that the domain changed course away from bulk wine to produce quality wine they themselves bottled. Under the helm of Guy Panis, Vieux Parc’s focus on cultivation and bottling, and departure from the production of bulk wine, led to numerous awards and great success. Later, Louis Panis, Guy’s son, returned from a career in teaching to take the lead and continue the efforts his father had put into motion. While Louis tends to the winemaking, his wife, Claudine Panis, handles the administration and runs the tasting room, which is open year-round.

I can’t believe it’s not Gavi!

This superb Cortese from Piemonte gives many a more expensive Gavi a run for their money. So what’s in a name? Gavi di Gavi is certainly one that brings to mind classy Italian white and a price tag to match. This wine isn’t a Gavi di Gavi but it’s darn close to one as it […]
