Domaine du Grand Arc, Corbieres Rouge, Reserve Grand Arc, 2018

In Stock Now!

This is the latest vintage of one of our staples at SVS: about 50% Carignan, with 35% Grenache and 15% Mourvèdre, aged in two to four year old barrels. It's a splendid robust wine: vivid, inky purple; exhales an expensive perfume of berries and vanilla, and delivers a spicy, red-fruited, lightly savoury mouthful, backed by well-judged fruit tannins. It's as gutsy as a more expensive southern Rhône and as elegant and concentrated as a much more expensive Bordeaux. Now-2024

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.
