In France’s Languedoc-Roussillon region is an appellation called Corbières where they make bargain-priced red wines from Carignan, Syrah and Grenache. Château du Grand Caumont Cuvée Tradition Corbières 2014 is dense purple-black in colour — a testament to its richly extracted fruit flavours. It shows a spicy, herbal nose of blackberries. Medium-bodied and dry, it’s got a savoury taste of warm blackberries tinged with herbs and a lively acidic finish. Great value here.
