It doesn’t rain it pours, or at least pours wine…Corbières wine that is. I went looking for another after I recently had a tasty treat from this area of France. One of the wines I fell in love with in Languedoc was the Corbières, and these recent two reminded me why. This wine is dark and brooding out of the bottle, and it’s initial nose really does it no justice. But, let it sit for 20 minutes or more and it opens up to a delightfully complex wine for the price. The nose shows lots of berries and spice, along with pepper, and the mouth is sweet and fruity up front, but the tannins take over near the middle and the ending is a bittersweet chocolate. Great with some beef and collard greens (yes collard greens, we are Southerners after all), and equally as good all by itself.
