2014 Maxime Magnon "Rozeta" Corbieres

SKU #1230545 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Another winner is the 2014 Corbieres Rozeta, which checks in as a blend of 40% Carignan, and 30% each of Grenache and Cinsault. Vibrant, juicy and seamless, with lots of sweet cherry and juicy berry fruits, flowers and some walnut oil-like characteristics, this medium-bodied, beautifully balanced and unique Corbières can be enjoyed anytime over the coming 5-7 years.

K&L Notes

This field blend of mostly Carignan, with Grenache, Syrah, Grenache Gris, Macabou and Terret, is vinified with no sulfur during fermentation, and enjoys a low-impact elevage in used Burgundy barrels from a producer in Chassagne-Montrachet. Importer Kermit Lynch says of the vintner: "Maxime is part of the new wave of passionate viticulteurs who cultivate their vines with the utmost respect for nature and the soil. He’s certified organic, but also incorporates biodynamic practices into his vineyard management."

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Carignane

- This red grape goes by many names, including Carignane, Carignano, Cariñena, Mazuelo, Moestal, Roussillonen and Samsó, which can make things confusing. A native of northern Spain's Cariñena DO, this grape is also found all over France, particularly in the Languedoc-Roussillon, and is also planted in substantial amounts in Italy and California. A bold, spicy, tannic grape, you'll frequently find Carignan blended with softer, fruitier varieties like Grenache.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
