Cave d’Embres et Castelmaure, Corbieres, Languedoc – BKWine Pick

Cave d’Embres et Castelmaure, Corbières, Languedoc

To reach the village of Embres et Castelmaure (yes, that’s how its called) you have to follow narrow, winding roads, beautiful and remote and full of game hunters in season… To arrive in the village and find a cooperative that is modern, not to say trendy, is not quite what you expect. but Cave d’Embres et Castelmaure has succeeded in convincing its members (les cooperateurs) that to survive today you have to focus on quality.

The wines are very good, starting with the nice and easy-to-drink La Buvette to the more serious la Grande Cuvée and Cuvée N:o 3. The labels are decidedly modern, perhaps designed with younger drinkers in mind, as are the bag-in-boxes. Now they can even boast a brand new architecture designed winery. Some call it “un Guggenheim des Corbières”…

    Madame, vous êtes sur un site journalistique, une revue sur les vins en ligne. Je vous suggère de contacter le producteur.
