Leading appellation in Languedoc-Roussillon in terms of volume, the Corbières vineyard is a must for wines from the south of France.
Located in the heart of Cathar Country, in the south of the Aude department, the mid-mountain massif of Corbières has always produced wines of character.
Its atypical terroir allows it to create unique wines. Its soil thus combines schistose and limestone soils, while its climate, although Mediterranean, is particularly harsh. In this context, only the most resilient grape varieties can flourish in the Cathar climate.
As part of the Heritage wine range, this bottle of Corbières red wine is named “Year 806” in honor of the Château de Peyrepertuse, a of the most emblematic monuments of the sites of Cathar Country.
Gérard Bertrand wished, just like the other bottles of wine in the range, (let us mention in particular An 990 Fitou or An 873 Minervois ), this cuvée An 806 Corbières was designed to reflect its terroir, its history and its origins.
This red wine from Languedoc-Roussillon thus highlights all the character of the red wines of Corbières.
