The previous year, on the occasion of our first participation in the competition, it was our Château Beauregard Mirouze Lauzina Rouge 2013 AOP Corbières which obtained a gold medal.  Three wines recompensed with three golds….. not a bad result !

A few words about the 2014 vintage…

In 2014, the hand-picking of a plot of Syrah was interrupted by an enormous rainstorm.   The grapes that were left were then dried by a strong westerly wind (the Cers) before being picked, sorted and isolated in a small vat.  Everything was done by hand, and sometimes even with our feet, such as treading down the grapes.  The wild yeasts kicked in, no sulphites, just pure ripe fruit..
