The opinion of the sommelier

This wine is a deliciousconcentrate of fresh fruits and spices enhanced by just the right amount of woody aromas. The nose is so explosive that once the wine is poured in the glass, it’s really hard to resist to the desire of taking immediately a sip. This wine is a perfect example of the best Languedoc can give. This kind of wine is also very interesting because it’s so consensual that it can be paired with a lot of different dishes. 

 

Terroir

Located in the Corbières Mountains, Château Saint-Estève’s vines take advantage of the chalky soil of the region which gives fresh and acidulous aromas. Those balance the power given by the sun that shines strongly in this southern area. The vines are on average quite old which explains the high concentration of this wine.

lecepage Grape variety

This delicious red wine from Corbières is a blend between the four most common grape varieties in Languedoc. Mourvedre is a little fragile, so it was abandoned after the phylloxera crisis. However, this variety gives a lot of complexity and increases the aging potential. Thus, since 1960, mourvedre has been widely re-planted in Provence and Languedoc.

lemillesime Vintage

2013 started late as a cold spring delayed the blossoming. However, during summer, the sun shined almost permanently and all the vines were able to catch up. This quick ripening enhanced the sweet dimension of that wine and the expressivity of its aromas. Yummy! 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Henry de Monfreid was a famous adventurer who explored the surroundings of the Red Sea. Hubert Latham was among the first who tried to fly over the English Channel … The least we can say is that Eric and Sylvie Latham’s ancestors did not lack audacity ! Neither do Eric and Sylvie who came back from Ivory Coast where they were selling cocoa and coffee to buy Chateau Saint-Esteve to fulfil their dream of making generous wines.
