Château Croix d'Aumèdes Corbières AOP Cuvée Réserve

 

A bomb from Corbières! In the main appellation of Languedoc, interesting and full-bodied red wines are made and this Cuvée Réserve stands head and shoulders above it. No surprise that this beautiful wine received 97 points from Decanter! The wood-aged Château Croix d'Aumèdes Corbières owes the high score to the use of three grapes, Carignan, Syrah and Grenache, which provide alternating floral and fruity aromas, sweet scents, typical southern French spiciness, a generous, crispy taste and a hint of minerality. A particularly complex wine yet wonderfully smooth. Bet you go for another glass?

 

Attractive and intense ruby red wine with the convincing and delicate aromas of sun-drenched fruit such as ripe black cherries, juicy plums and berries, supplemented with liquorice and warm herbs such as thyme and bay leaves. On the palate, the wine reveals fruity, powerful and dynamic character with silky soft tannins. A beautiful red wine with a well-defined Mediterranean personality that resonates deep into the spicy finish. A jewel from the Languedoc treasury!

 

Corbières 

 

Behind the rugged Montagne d'Alaric, between Carcassonne and Narbonne, lies Corbières; the main appellation in Languedoc. The wine region is known for its versatility. From rugged mountain landscapes to gentle cypress-covered hills, exposed to sunlight while a cool breeze from the Mediterranean cools down. And wherever you look in Corbières, it is everywhere that Languedoc is so characteristic garrigue. This is sometimes translated as undergrowth, but that description does not do justice to the low scrub that consists of herbs such as thyme, rosemary, laurel, lavender, juniper and pine. Those who stroll through the area on a sunny day will be spoiled by the rich aromas that the vegetation releases. 

 

These aromas are not only absorbed by the nose, the grapes in the area also receive a good dose of garrigue. Especially Carignan, Syrah and Grenache absorb the aromas of the typical southern French herbs. It is therefore not surprising that these, together with Mourvèdre and Cinsault, are the most planted grapes in Languedoc. Château Croix d'Aumèdes used the former three for this Cuvée Réserve. The trio provides deliciously fruity wines, which are complemented in Corbières by that powerful herb bag. The result is a Mediterranean greatness. 

 

The Barsalou family

 

For six generations, the passion and knowledge of winemaking has been passed down in the Barsalou family. That family history started with Emilien Raïssac, son of a tailor with a taste for wine, who planted the first vines in the southern French wine region of Corbières in 1890. The vineyard was given the name Aumèdes and is now the oldest property of the family. The vineyard covers about forty hectares, laid out on terraced plots, the soil of which is rich in clay, lime, loam and gravel. Especially Carignan feels at home on this soil, and the vines age in a grandiose way. For example, the Carignan used in this Cuvée Réserve comes from 70-year old sticks. Besides Carignan, Château Croix d'Aumèdes works with Syrah and Grenache. These sticks are on average 25 years old and, like the Carignan, are rooted deeply in the rich clay and lime soil, which leads to powerful and balanced wines.
