Domaine Faillenc Sainte-Marie Corbières Rouge, France 2019
The domaine, in its present form, was founded during the reign of Louis XIV. Faillenc Sainte Marie has recovered its past allure under the careful guidance of the energetic Gibert family. The Corbières Rouge is undoubtedly Mediterranean, with an extremely dry climate, and terroir composed of inhospitable, rocky limestone terraces, only vines, olive trees and some scraggly brush survive under these harsh conditions. It's rustic, full bodied and dark fruited, perfect for a nice BBQ.
