Famille de Fabre Chateau de Luc Rouge 2017
Varietal: Carignan, Mourvèdre, Grenache, Syrah
Region: Corbières, France
Appreciated by most South of France Organic Wine drinkers.
Shades of crimson and garnet on colour. Nose is spicy with notes of black pepper, juniper, and tapenade. An elegant attack on the palate with hints of dark chocolate, fig and black olives. Ripe and silky tannins.
The vineyards of Chateau de Luc have a rich diversity of soils: recent alluvial soil, rolled pebble soil, and deep plots of limestone that dates back to the Miocene. They offer little fertility and high minerality. The strong Cers (North-west wind) blows down from the garrigue and infuses the wines with aromas of juniper and rosemary.
Grapes are hand harvested and vinified using the whole bunch from the Carignan and Grenache. Long maceration with destemmed Syrah and Mourvèdre. Thermo regulated with pumb over
This wine is served at 16-18 degrees and is well enjoyed with a medium rare cooked steak with herb butter or baked camembert with rosemary and cashews.
