Embres-et-Castelmaure is a tiny village to the south of Corbières, with around 150 residents, all of whom are families of grape growers. The village's local cooperative makes this wine from grapes hand-picked from 760 local plots, with vines aged up to 80 years old. An expressive and open nose, full of damson jam and cassis notes, and that unmistakable 'garrigue' aroma of heather and wild thyme. Plenty of body and soft, ripe tannins. A great all-round wine for drinking on its own or with food. Ideal with beef daube, casseroles and other tender red meats.
