My Notes:

About Les Deux Rives:

The "deux rives" in Les Deux Rives wine refers to the two banks of the Canal du Midi (much like the Left Bank in Paris is called the Rive Gauche), and the label is inspired by a 1920s postcard of the Canal.

Built adjacent to Corbières in the late 1600s, the Canal connected the Mediterranean to the Atlantic, and was one of the most important routes for transporting wines of the Languedoc-Roussillon to northern France, greater Europe and beyond.
