Château d’Aussières 2014, A.C Corbières

£27.95

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, Mourvedre and Carignan.

Tasting notes

A deep almost opaque ruby in the glass. Then on the nose there’s the warm Mediterranean influence providing garrigue herbs, smoky black fruit, freshly crushed black peppercorns, pine sap and eucalyptus. The palate has bags of black fruits and a spicy smoky finish. There’s nothing angular or abrasive at all, the finish is silky and rich with good length and lovely freshness which is typical of the vintage.
