The vast Corbières zone in the Languedoc contains a little bit of everything, from classic warmth and generosity on the outskirts of Narbonne to wild mountain wines in the hinterland and concentrated, stony wines up on the border with the Agly Valley and the Roussillon. In a way, this blend of Carignan (a great Corbières speciality) with Syrah and Grenache brings all three styles together: flowers and fruit in the billowing, sweet-scented aromas and both generous fruits and something more stony and driving in the finely constructed palate. The tannins are present but unintimidating, and the acidity is unobtrusive and ripe. So easy to drink that you almost overlook those complexities -- but they'll keep you coming back for more.
