2010 Chateau de Vaugelas Corbières, Languedoc, $12.99/Sale $10.99: Quite the humdinger from the rocky hills of southern France…a stone’s throw over the Pyrenees from Spain.
This is a hearty red that the monks at the Abbaye of Lagrasse are said to have enjoyed immensely. The color is dark, the texture smooth and the flavors have great depth.
We are great Corbières fans…maybe we should join a monastery! The grapes are Syrah, Grenache and Carignan with a sprinkle of Mourvedre.
Though not certified, the vineyard practices are essentially organic. Try this Corbières…it will shine with red meats. And, the price is irresistible.
