2011 Corbières Rouge Grande Cuvée Castelmaure - 87 PTS - WA

Wine Advocate"The Grande Cuvee selections see more oak, and I-m not sure they are better for it. The oak component restrains the exuberance of the fruit, which is reflected in the more streamlined and reticent aromatics. The blend uses much more Grenache and Syrah and less Carignan. The tightly wound 2011 Corbieres Grande Cuvee needs 3-4 more months of bottle age. It exhibits pleasant hints of licorice, vanillin, earth, black cherries and black currants."

2011 Corbières Rouge Grande Cuvée Castelmaure - 90 PTS - WA

wa90"The 2011 Grande Cuvée is composed of 45% Grenache, 45% Syrah and 10% Carignan from 40-year-old vines. This outstanding red offers Christmas fruitcake notes intermixed with licorice, kirsch, roasted Provençal herbs, spice and pepper. It is a flavorful, savory, medium to full-bodied offering with no hard edges. Consume it over the next 2-3 years. - Robert Parker"

2012 Corbières Rouge Grande Cuvée Castelmaure - 89 PTS - WINE VALUE - WA

wa89"The two best buys for my taste (and even better than the 2014 Corbieres Col Des Vents) include the 2012 Corbieres Rouge Grand Cuvée, a blend of 45% Grenache, 45% Syrah and 10% Carignan, all from relatively older vines. This is a delicious, full-throttle red with plenty of strawberry and black cherry fruit moving toward blacker berries on the palate. The wine is medium to full-bodied, and has beautiful purity, decent acidity and ripe tannin. Drink it over the next 2-3 years."

2013 Corbières Rouge Grande Cuvée Castelmaure - 88 PTS - WA

wa88"The smallest production cuvee is the 2013 Corbieres Grande Cuvee. An even split of 50% Grenache and 50% Syrah aged in 70% in a new, 1, and 2 year-old barrels, with the balance in tank, it possesses a medium-bodied, nicely concentrated, balanced style as well as lots of plum, cedar, spice cabinet and dried flowers. It blossoms nicely with time in the glass and should drink well through 2023."

2015 Corbières Rouge Grande Cuvée Castelmaure - 90 PTS - WA

wa90"There are an impressive one million bottles of the 2015 Corbieres Grande Cuvee, a barrel-aged equal-parts blend of Grenache and Syrah. Aromas of cracked pepper, black olives and black cherries lead into a medium to full-bodied wine that has a silky texture and supple tannins. Hints of clove and allspice add complexity on the finish. Drink this beauty over the next few years. - Joe Czerwinski"
