Corbieres is an appellation in the Languedoc region in the south of France. Located in the foothills of the Pyrenees, it contains so many different soil types and microclimates that it has been subdivided into 11 terroirs. These are: Montagne d'Alaric, Saint Victor, Fontfroide, Queribus, Boutenac, Termenès, Lézignan, Lagrasse, Sigean, Durban, and Serviès.

The most common grape variety is Carignan, but Syrah, Mourvedre, Grenache, and others are increasingly common. Corbieres Boutenac has been granted its own subappellation for wines that are made of at least 30 percent Carignan.

Most of the wines are ripe, powerful reds, but some white wine is also made from varieties such as Bourboulenc, Maccabeo, and Grenache Blanc.

  • Domaine de Serres Mazard Corbieres 2004

    Snoothrank:

    This reminded me of the Domaine de la Garrigue Vacqueyras I've had before. No small wonder - although the Vacqueyras is from So Rhone and this bottle is from So France, both have characterized their wines as coming from soil with "garrigue". This produces a wine that will are earthy and herb-tasting (in particular, rosemary and thyme). For th... Read More

  • Domaine Sainte-Eugénie Corbières 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Initial aromas of red berries - especially raspberry - are complemented earth & spice. Smooth , round tannins and flavors of red plum, cherry & raspberry, as well and earthy and spicy notes float on a medium body. A subtle hint of graphite and smoke lead to a fairly long and elegant finish. Read More

  • Société Cooperative Castelmaure Corbières la Jeep NV

    Snoothrank:

    Dark in color. The nose on this is pure violets with rasp/black berries, pepper, earth and a rich spiciness. Lush and rich wine in the mouth with medium weight tannins, and good acidity. Pure fruit on the palate with strong and spicey finish. Really a nice little wine. 4/5 [NR] Read More
