{Wine Label} Les Hauts de Castelmaure Corbières

This is one of my favorite labels. I love the color palette as well as the beautiful background engraving.  Corbières is one of the largest wine appellation in France. To distinguish the wines, Corbières is divided into 11 terroirs , located in Southwestern France.   The "terroirs" produce mainly red wines. The grape variety is Carignan for about 50% and the red wines are rich and, spicy, full body and fruity.  In that region, you will find the amazing fairy tale fortified town of Carcassonne, where you can read about it here:
