Ch. Auzolle Corbieres 2013

Blended Red from France - Other
Review Date : 13-Aug-2016
Full, black-red colour, near impenetrable, with ruby hues on the rim. The bouquet is firmly packed with deep and intense aromas of black berried fruits entwined with nuances of minerals and suggestions of reduction. Medium-full bodied, the palate is well-concentrated with a core of rich black berried fruits along with black minerals and a touch of earthy reduction. The fruit is more straightforward than nuanced, and forms a firm line with supporting fine, supple tannin extraction and structure. Soft acidity lends a degree of roundness, and the flavours carry to a lingering, moderately concentrated finish. This is a black-fruited and minerally Corbieres with supple structure and line. Match with barbecued and roasted red meats over the next 4+ years. From 13 ha near Portel-des-Corbieres, 30% Syrah, 25% Grenache, 30% Carignan and 15% Mourvedre, fermented to 14.0% alc. 16.5/20 Aug 2016 RRP $18.95
