2016 Corbières Rouge

Domaine de Fontsainte

2016 Corbières <i>Rouge</i> Domaine de Fontsainte - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant



Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday . . . Corbières rouge from Domaine de Fontsainte is my choice for a consistent, daily, value wine. This versatile red pairs well with a gourmet food truck burger, Café Rouge roast chicken, or a homemade ratatouille dish—delicioso!
         The magic of this Carignan-based rouge is that it brings pure pleasure to your dining table, making it easy to gulp down, without heavy pondering. With purple-robed dark fruit, hints of earthiness, and a bouquet that pulls you into the glass—and my oh my, it’s cheaper by the case. Mature adults, don’t hesitate! —Bryant Vallejo
