Corbieres is a large centrally located appellation of the Coteaux du Languedoc; a viticultural area that extends from Nimes to Narbonne. This region encompasses an enormous variety of soil types and microclimates and the wines tend to be just as multifaceted as the terroir. Corbieres experiences widely varied weather, from dry, Atlantic winds and cold weather from the northwest to typically warm, Mediterranean breezes, with resulting wines that are authentic, ripe and refreshing. Simone Descamps is a blend of 20+ year old Carignan, Syrah, and Grenache, the oldest and most famous cuvée of Château de Lastours. This easy to love, evolved wine is perfect for cold weeknights and simple fare.
