The Château D’Aussières Blason D’Aussieres Corbières is made with a great blend of grapes—49% Shiraz, 23% Carignan, 14% Mourvèdre, and 14% Grenache noir. This deep red wine is fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel and concrete tanks, and is made according to traditional processes and methods. Then 20% of it is aged in oak barrels for 12 months.
A deep red color, with a subtle brightness, this wine is powerful on the nose, with flavors of clove, black fruit, and roasted and garrigue notes. It’s full-bodied on the palate, fresh and smooth, with notes of berries and tannins.
Beautifully harmonious, the Château D’Aussières Blason D’Aussieres Corbières pairs best with beef and pork dishes, or heavy pasta dishes.
One of the oldest and most beautiful of Narbonne’s wine-making areas, Domaine d’Aussière consists of three main areas spanning 112 hectares of vineyard: the hillsides around the Château, the Carruades plateau, and some hectares in Saint-Estèphe. The oldest plot of vines was planted in 1886, and is called, “La Gravière.” Domaine d’Aussière was acquired by Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) in 1999, and contains traditional grape varieties in Languedoc—Shiraz or Syrah, Mourvèdre, Grenache, and Carignan, as well as Merlot, Chardonnay, and Cabernet.
Store unopened red wines in a cool, dry, and dark place safe from constant vibration. Keep your bottle horizontal in a wine rack or cellar to retain the moistness of the cork. The ideal temperature for storage is between 16 to 18°C. Once opened, a bottle will be good for 3 to 5 days standing upright in the refrigerator.
