Chateau Fabre Gasparets, Corbieres-Boutenac
Aromas and flavours of cherry and black fruits infused with subtle, exotic spices. The finish is smooth and satisfying – an exceptionally fine and elegant wine. Its quality and character mean it drinks beautifully now but could also benefit from further ageing.
A delightful series of small hills, where the vineyards are surrounded by pine forests and scrublands; you are in Gasparets, a hamlet of a few souls and a haven of peace. In 1711, the Fabre family moved into one of the finest vineyards in the Languedoc, which was recognized as premier cru-Corbières Boutenac. The expertise of the Fabre family is illustrated particularly in Corbières. Founder of the Family Fabre, Andre Fabre has long been chairman of the appellation, a passion he has passed on to his children. His aim is to allow the land to express itself in the creation of fruity, complex, but immediately enjoyable wine.
Very old Carignan Noir vines together with Grenache Noir, Syrah and Mourvèdre are picked by hand from 30 hl/ha plot.
