'I remember buying the 2010 vintage of this wine back in 2012 and it was almost identical to this 2015 vintage in richness, gloss and length. The flavour defies belief not least because it is made from Syrah and Grenache but it looks more like a swaggering claret than it does an earthy Corbières. Polished, densely fruity and nicely seasoned with French oak, this is a simply brilliant wine and an epic match with roast lamb or beef.' Matthew Jukes, Money Week


Tasting Notes

What an evocative region this is: garrigue-covered plateaux, scents of wild thyme, ancient grottos and gorges, whispering winds, castle ruins, limestone outcrops, wild boar, gnarly old vines and bright Mediterranean sunshine. The Chateau de Durfort Corbieres vines grow in rocky schist soils in the craggy uplands of Cathar country. The wine has that typical, sumplremely gastronomic combination of ripe, intense spicy fruit flavours, supple, soft, sometimes sweet tannins and a fresh acid core, which makes them irresistible with all the hearty rustic fare of autumn - a rich cassoulet, or meaty slow-cooked ox cheek with garlicky mashed potato - the kind of stuff that makes you feel like Henry VIII.
