Nous avons présenté 3 vins à la dégustation à Jeb Dunnuck, collaborateur de Robert Parker et critique vin de Wine Advocate (April 17, issue 230). Les résultats sont tombés il y a quelques jours… :
Fiaire Rouge 2014
More fruit driven than the Lauzina release, with terrific notes of blackcurrants, licorice, smoked herbs and hints of chocolate, the Syrah driven 2014 Corbières Fiaire is medium to full-bodied, ripe, beautifully textured and layered on the palate. This is a well-made, layered beauty that should drink nicely through 2022 (at least).
Lauzina Rouge 2014
Possessing plenty of Old World charm in its peppery dark fruits, earth and leather bouquet, the 2014 Corbières Lauzina (70% Syrah and 30% Grenache) is medium-bodied, supple and nicely balanced, with considerable polish and elegance. Drink it over the coming 3-5 years.
Sol en Corbières Rouge 2015
The 2015 Corbières Sol En Corbieres is a big fruit bomb based on equal parts Syrah and Mourvèdre brought up all in tank. It possesses a ripe, fruit-forward, delicious style as well as classic notes of peppery herbs, damp earth and darker berry fruits. I suspect it’s a good value (I wasn’t able to get the prices) and should drink nicely for 2-4 years.
