Jeb Dunnuck says about the Château de Villemajou Grand Vin, AOP Corbières Boutenac, 2013 : "My favorite of the wines tasted this go around, the 2013 Domaine de Villemajou Corbières Boutenac Grand Vin is a brilliant wine that does everything right. Made from a mix of Syrah, Carignan and Grenache, brought up in 80% new oak, it gives up lots of sweet black fruits, chocolate, crushed rock and smoked meat like aromas and flavors. This gives way to a medium to full-bodied effort that has superb overall balance, nicely integrated acidity and great purity of fruit. It’s already hard to resist, yet I suspect it will evolve gracefully given its purity, balance and freshness.
Former rugby player Gerard Bertrand makes a bevy of high quality wines from throughout the Languedoc. All of his wines have well-made, textured, ripe profiles that are always a joy to drink."
