The top cuvee of the estate, the 2014 Corbières No1 is a foudre-aged blend of Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah. Just bottled a month prior to this tasting, it certainly wasn’t showing any ill effects and sported a vibrant inky color, as well as terrific notes of cassis, violets, spice and a hint of graphite. With full-bodied richness, ultra-fine tannin and gorgeous purity of fruit, this is a sensational Corbières (I might even be underrating it) that's up with the top wines of the vintage.
