Castelmaure La Buvette
SCV Castelmaure
France - Languedoc-Roussillon - Corbieres   

The wine shows a beautiful bright red color and an explosive and intense nose of red fruits - crushed strawberry and cassis. It is elegant and soft on the palate with blackberry and blueberry fruit, and dried cherry notes. Refreshing, silky smooth tannins and spicy notes on the finish. A great value red from South of France to enjoy on any occasion, from picnics to everyday drinking and dinner parties!

jeb dunnuck logo 250"Coming from a mix of limestone and schist soils, the NV La Buvette (60/40 Grenache and Carignan) has a Beaujolais-like character as well as perfumed notes of strawberries, violets, and exotic spices. It’s geared for near-term drinking, yet it’s certainly charming, well-made, and about as easy-drinking as it gets."

wa"Black cherries, cola and hints of allspice mark the nose of the NV Vin de France La Buvette. It's a supple, medium-bodied red that would be perfect by the glass in every neighborhood bistro. No, it's not profound, nor will it age, but it's a solid value. - Joe Czerwinski"
