Château Fabre-Gasparets 2016 Corbières-Boutenac


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!

Decanter World Wine Awards

Bronze Medal at Decanter World Wine Awards "Bright fruit, coffee toastiness on the nose. Juicy blackcurrant flavours with a long, leafy freshness."

Robert Parker Wine Advocate

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)

Wine Spectator

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)

One could think that Chardonnay is a grape made for Burgundy or Champagne, however it can grow well in various types of climate, even warmer ones. This southern Chardonnay exhibits a pale golden colour and a slightly toasted nose, due to a short time spent in oak barrel. Palate is balanced and lively with notes of white flowers. The buttery and round...

This wine is nothing but classic! It could be seen as the little extravaganza of the winemaker, a big fan of Condrieu wines - the famous Viognier wines of the Northern Rhône - which may explains a few things about this wine. It starts on a very mineral nose of candied citrus and peach. The palate is rich, concentrated and fresh, delivering aromas of...
