Tresmoulis 2000 Corbieres

90 points

Corbieres is a region in the southwest of France, not far from Spain. This wine is drinking excellently now. I wish I had a few more bottles . The nose is tight with a bit of blueberries and spice. It is definitely not Australian. The palate is also tight, not big but very long with more spice than any wine I can remember in a long time. After swishing in the mnouth there is definitely a peppery spice and a bit of cinnamom. The tannins are strident, but no real oak flavour, even though it says on the label it was aged in aok barrels. The blend in Carignan, Grenache, Mouvedre – the three windmills. I think some of the Barossa winemakers are trying to make wines like this but failing.
