Corbières-Boutenac is today at the top of the hierarchy in Languedoc: The Boutenac terroir gained its specific appellation within the Corbières AOC in 2005, thanks to the exceptional quality and elegance of its wines. After a 12-month ageing in oak barrels, this red has an explosive nose of cherry and spices. Palate is complex and aromatic, with nice flavours of black fruit and sweet spices - and a classy, silky finish. Just a wonderful bottle, have a try!

|What experts say|
Bronze Medal at Decanter World Wine Awards "Bright fruit, coffee toastiness on the nose. Juicy blackcurrant flavours with a long, leafy freshness."
16/20 "Carignan, Syrah, Mourvèdre. 12 months in French oak. Very heavy bottle. Lots of yeasty beef-extract flavours and black-olive tapenade. Mouth-coating stuff. Thick, burly, rugby-prop tannins. Dark mushrooms and earthiness and black, black fruit. But there is a bit of a lift in the mid palate. This would be great with game and mushroom pie loaded with thyme."
92/100 "The full-bodied Corbieres-Boutenac Chateau Fabre Gasparets is a blend of 50% Carignan, 30% Mourvèdre and 20% Syrah, aged a year in oak. It fits firmly into the modern camp, boasting cedar and vanilla overtones, mixed berry fruit and a creamy-textured, plush palate that turns velvety on the lengthy finish. Critics may say it's a bit anonymous, but the lush fruit and oak are pure hedonism." (previous vintage)
88/100 "Tobacco leaf, dried berry and fresh earth flavors are woven together with tangy acidity in this medium-bodied red. Plenty of savory spice, sandalwood and meaty accents add to the zesty finish. Drink now." (previous vintage)
