Corbieres Millésime 2008
Terroir: Corbières (Boutenac). Clay limestone soils within a natural amphitheatre surrounded by pine trees and garrigue. The specific climat offers soil containing aeolian sand, atypical for the Corbières, giving the wines more suppleness and soft fruit character. In addition, the sheltered sun trap and warm soils enable Mourvèdre to ripen easily.
