Château Pavillon de Villenouvette Corbières 2017 2017

Award Winner

Concours Mondial Bruxelles
Grande Médaille d'Or Medal – 2018 BE

2017 was France’s smallest harvest since 1945, meaning that it will be harder than ever to snap up the best (and most delicious) values. But the good news is, we’ve done the legwork for you, uncovering this beauty from the ancient southern village of Corbières

Direct from the cellars of 19th-century Château Villenouvette and local star Marc Dubernet (“one of the prime movers in the renaissance of Southern French winemaking,” says Decanter), this rich, warming red is a smooth blend of Carignan and Syrah from vines up to 60 years old. Given six months in fine oak, the Cuvée de Réserve is one of Marc’s favorite wines to make.

His passion is obvious to all who drink it, including some of France’s toughest wine show judges: this release boasts two gold medals, from the 2018 Concours Mondial de Bruxelles and leading French wine guide Gilbert & Gaillard. Look forward to an invitingly aromatic nose (super-ripe blackberry, thyme, black pepper) and layers of toasty black fruit and wild herb flavor on the palate.
