Chateau des Campets 2003

Sunday, January 27th, 2008

Forget the preamble.  This Corbières is the most interesting and, frankly, gorgeous wine I have tried in ages.

Campets and a “proper” pot noodle (for some reason)

I found it at Laithwaites (although it was sadly out of stock at time of writing).  I cannot remember the price, but it was definitely not expensive.  I fear that it is absolutely necessary to stick to the 2003 due to the freaky hot summer that year.  It killed several hundred French people so one can only imagine the effect it had on shrivelling (er….I mean concentrating) the grapes, and this wine is an amalgamation of several.
