Reviews and Ratings

Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This wine is what Corbieres is all about. Lots of gorgeous ripe plum fruit, with pepper spice, fresh and dried flowers and a hint of warm spice. You can smell and taste the herb and lavender fields. 91 Points.
Cherie Cole rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This rich red from Southern France opens up with aromas of mincemeat, plum and berry preserves. Full-bodied with medium tannins. Pair with foie gras or wild game. Tasted May 06, 2018.
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A full bodied vibrant red blend of Grenache and Syrah from Southern France Corbieres in Languedoc. A beguiling bouquet of plum, red cherries, forest leaves, sweet smoke, and mushrooms. Flavours include stewed strawberries, graphite minerals rosemary, cedar trees and cloves. Medium plus acidity with full bodied, tannic grip and finish. Dry and developing. Good to lay down for a few years for future development. Try this with grilled beef ribs and sundried tomato pesto. 88 points - tasted May 2018
Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

The Corbieres 2015 releases aromas of dark skin plum, blackberry, fresh cut grass, peppery note and leather. From Languedoc-Roussillon, France, this wine is made from Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre tastes of fruity plum, cherry, fern, smoke, pepper and baking spice. Medium body and finish, this creation from Abbotts and Corbieres offers lovely acidity and soft tannins. Pair with BBQ pork. Enjoy.

Christian Marcoux
Abbotts & Delaunay 2015 is a well-priced Cabernet Sauvignon from Corbières in the Languedoc wine region. Wine grapes for this rustic red were sourced from three vineyards in Corbière. Rich and spicy with garrigue herbs and a minty lift, this one would pair well with lamb or rabbit stew.- Community Wine Reviews
