This southern French red is as gutsy as it is expressive. Chewy, dense, organically farmed and with one of the loveliest vintage labels going. It’s another warming autumn wine for a rainy weekend and comfort food.

Charmingly combining ripe brambly fruit and aromas of smoke, earth, and herbs, this robust red blend (50% syrah, 40% carignan, and 10% Grenache) from Corbières vividly evokes the Mediterranean countryside where it is grown.  Fresh and juicy yet grippy in just the right old school way, this is lusty, chewy wine for autumn braise, cassoulet or lamb shank.
