Winemaker's Notes:

Beautiful dark red color. Clean, fresh nose. Good harmony between the grape varieties, with typical Corbières characteristics. One can tell that Aussières' Carignans are maturing and becoming more refined. Notes of flowers, blackberries and spices. The attack presents the wine's usual suppleness and reveals a delightful sweetness. Perfect proportions of Mourvèdre and Syrah provide good structure. The concentration is medium, but this is intentional, in order to make the wine more accessible as soon as it is bottled.

About Chateau d'Aussieres:

Château d'Aussières is located near Narbonne, in the Corbières in the microclimate of Fontfroide and Boutenac. Château d'Aussières has been since the Roman era, one of the great estates of the Languedoc. In the Middle Ages, it belonged to the celebrated Abbey of Fontfroide, its neighbor. With its exceptional location and terroir and by the force of its history, the Château d'Aussières is, a wild and natural property of intense and powerful beauty.

Acquired in 1999 by Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite), the 550 hectare estate has undergone a vast rehabilitation programme. 167 hectares of vines have been replanted with carefully selected traditional Languedoc grape varieties: Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Carignan, complemented by Cabernet, Merlot and Chardonnay. The estate buildings were restored at the same time and a new winery installed in the old cellars, in the heart of the vineyard. State-of-the-art equipment and technology are seamlessly married to time-tested methods in the production of the wine.
