Beauregard-Mirouze, Corbières 'Campana' Rouge


'50% Syrah, 50% Grenache deeply rooted on free draining ferruginous sandstone soils in the heart of the Corbières garrigue. Organic methods, old-ish vines (the oldest are Syrah and are over 40 years old) and low yields make for a really honest, satisfying red. A little funky on the nose at first , then black peppercorn. On the palate; juicy and creamy, with chunky tannins. Spicy and juicy fruitiness, freshness and length on the finish.'

"A big powerful slightly barnyardy soft red wine to drink on cold nights." John Wilson, Irish Times 31/01/15 BOTTLE OF THE WEEK

This estate, owned by Karine and Nicolas Mirouze has vineyards on the cool-nay cold, north-facing part of the Massif de Frontfroide in Corbières and the Grangeot cuvée takes it name from the vineyards around an old stone-built grain store in the small, cold Combarelles valley which is at the entrance of the Massif Fontfroide. The soils here are a thick layer of sandy, free-draining sandstone which is poor in nutrients. Yields are 50 hl/ha.
