Domaine du Grand Arc

Corbieres, France

Nicolas Schenk is now running the family estate created by his father Bruno. Bruno Schenk is still a legend here at SVS.

He was an engineer in Alsace before he came to buy vineyards in the Corbieres in 1995. At first he sent his grapes to the co-operative, but after one frost affected year he decided he had to come out and bottle his own wines to...

Grenache / Garnacha

Grenache / Garnacha 

Grenache grows well in hot, dry regions, though it can develop very high (15 degrees+) alcohol.

As such it is grown principally in Southern France and Spain (as Garnacha). It is usually blended with other varieties in the Southern Rhône and Languedoc (Syrah, Mourvedre, Carignan, Cinsaut and others).

Its flavour usually encompasses the...

Domaine du Grand Arc, Corbieres, La Thebaide, 2018

A new wine for us, from approximate quarters of Cinsault, Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre, well-oaked. Very deep hue. Rich, complex fruit palate of blackcurrant, blackberry and blueberry, with notes of woodsmoke and liquorice. The Cinsault brings grace and freshness. Decant to serve now. Super wine and a keeper. Now-2026



We have been buying from Grand Arc since 2002: here Nicolas Schenk is now running the family estate created by his father Bruno. The vines lie on classic argilo-calcaire soils, with some sandstone, around Cucugnan, in a valley of the Massif des Corbières in the south of the appellation, overlooked by the amazing hill-top Cathar castles of Quéribus and Peyrepertuse. The family have been following organic principles for 20 years but Nicolas was behind the final push to certification for the 2016 vintage. He has a keen interest in
biodynamics and is also continuing his father's pursuit of minimal intervention, in particular using natural yeasts and only a tiny amount of sulphur at bottling.

Our favourite wine merchant never fails to delight. Delicious wines at every price point - including a few gems below £10 in our favourites list. We’ve really enjoyed the sun case as an easy way to be introduced to new wines which we’ve then reordered. Friendly informative service completes the package.
