2014 Clos de l'Anhel "Les Terrassettes" Corbières (1.5L)

SKU #1274829

I met winemaker Sophie Guiraudon this past winter at the organic wine fair Millesime Bio. It's an annual event where organic winemakers from all over the world gather to show their wines. I tasted with her and was immediately smitten with the quality of the wines. I made an appointment to visit her winery right after the fair ended. Sophie is a one woman show farming 25 acres of vines while running her humble facility in Corbières. The region is kind of a hodgepodge of soil types but Sophie's vines are planted on silty clay-limestone. Her "Les Terrassettes" is a blend of 65% Carignan, 25% Syrah, 6% Grenache, and 4% Mourvèdre. Everything is hand harvested and destemmed prior to fermentation. The wine is lively with notes of black raspberry, roasted plum, allspice, and garrigue. It is medium full, fresh, and expressive. It catches what can be done in the region with a fine hand behind the winemaking. Pair this lovely wine with grilled game birds like quail or squab. Duck would be great too. Maybe a little lamb if you feel up for it. (Keith Mabry, K&L French Regional Buyer)

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.
