Château de Caraguilhes Appellation Corbières

 

Sols Clay-limestone, rocky hillside

Location Terroir de Boutenac, altitude 150-200m

Culture ECOCERT certification – organic wine since 1987

Grape varieties 90% Grenache blanc, 10% Roussanne

Vinified and aged for 9 months in French oak (demi-muid)

 

Tasting :

Eye A pale yellow wine, bright and clear, showing its freshness and youth.

Nose The white Grenache has a unique character and an elegant complexity, with seductive aromas of lemon, apricot and grapefruit. After aeration, it is the minerality which comes to the fore, with subtle notes of white flowers and redcurrants.  As the Solus gains power it reveals a certain distinctive purity through notes of fresh almonds.

Palate Round and lively; concentrated red fruits and grapefruit as on the nose. The wine is beautifully balanced with a long mineral  finish, a perfect expression of the Boutenac terroir, rich, and pure.

 

Tips on serving Decant for an hour, and serve between 12 and 14°C – not too cold or the wine will not show its full complexity.

Food and wine matching suggestions Rock lobster in aspc, coquilles St Jacques, sole with wild mushrooms, gratin of scallops with saffron, coulibiac of salmon, monkfish, goats’ cheese… or, our favourite, foie gras with quince jam.
