Château d’Aussières 2013, A.C Corbières
Château d’Aussières is the ‘cuvée d’excellence’, the product of a strict selection process from the best plots in the vineyard, made in limited quantities. The estate was acquired by DBR (Lafite) in 1999, and the resulting wines have improved year upon year. This vintage is Syrah based with a splash of Grenache, and Mourvedre.

A deep almost opaque ruby in the glass. Then on the nose there’s the warm Mediterranean influence providing garrigue herbs, smoky black cherry, freshly crushed black peppercorns, and dried strawberry notes. The palate has oodles of black fruits and a spicy smoky finish. There’s nothing angular or abrasive at all, the finish is silky with good length.
