Bastide Syrah 2016 Bottling Note

A Bastide is not something that you call someone when they run into the back of your car. It is, in fact, a fortified town of the sort that you get all over the southern and south-western France. They were built to keep out the English, or indeed the French who were seen as foreigners until relatively recently.

Anyway, that's enough history. This wine comes from the Aude region in the Languedoc. Chateau la Bastide is located in the hills above the ancient city of Narbonne, and it is considered to be one of the area's best estates. They make some excellent Corbieres, but their varietal Syrah is also good and great value for money. They use no oak, just stainless steel and concrete tanks which preserve the freshness of the fruit.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Classic garrique (that's the wild scrub in this part of France) nose, with notes of rosemary, fennel, and brambles. It's full and ripe on the palate, with a lovely freshness about it. This would be great with a hearty stew such as a Daube de Boeuf.
