Chateau Fabre Corbieres
REGION: The Languedoc is a vast region stretching across much of the south and Mediterranean and is France`s single largest vineyard entity for its Vins de Pays wines. Within the Languedoc lie several distinctly identified Vins de Pays (including the l`Aude, Gard and Hérault) and many generic appellations that maintain traditional local blends and wine styles such as Minervois, Corbières, Pic Saint Loup and Fitou.
PRODUCER: Since 1771 the Fabre family have been owners of Chateau Fabre in the village of Gasparet at the heart of the Corbieres region of the Languedoc. The vineyards occupy a succession of little hills with poor, stony soil, ideal for the regions important varietals of Carignan and Grenache.
TASTING NOTES: The present owner, Louis Fabre, continues the ancient tradition and brings his own talents to the estate blend of classic varieties of Carignon, Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre. The wine is concentrated with the fragrance of wild herbs and red fruits on the nose, lots of dark berry fruits and woodland hints on the palate, backed by subtle oaky spice and soft ripe tannins.
