Château de Caraguilhes Appellation Corbières
Clay-limestone, rocky hillside
Terroir de Boutenac, Saint Laurent de la Cabrerisse
ECOCERT certification, organic wine since 1987
60% Syrah (carbonic maceration and traditional fermentation), 25% Carignan (carbonic maceration), 15% Grenache noir (traditional)
Eye: Deep and dense ruby red colour displaying a nice concentration with glints of violet at the edge of the glass.
Nose: Concentrated aromas of black fruits and tapenade, with undertones of nutmeg and pepper. The complex nose lends maturity to the wine, and this 2016 vintage is the epitome of all that represents the mediterranean.
Palate: The silky attack, with notes of pepper, blackberry and black olive, compliments beautifully the robust quality of the wine. The tannins contribute a good structure and balance. Les Gourgoules is fresh and zesty, a modern expression of our ancient terroir.
