Tasting Notes Drink: 

An imposing and historically significant Languedoc Domaine, Château Vaugelas is located in a tranquil backwater of Corbieres. Situated beside the Alaric Mountain, the Château has been owned by the Bonfils family since 2000. The Vaugelas vineyard is set on beautiful blue gravelly screes of an ancient alluvial plain, with the Orbieu river flowing through the estate. This fine estate Corbieres has aromas of red fruits and cherries backed by hints of vanilla and mellow liquorice. The rich and full mouth is well balanced with fruit, Languedoc garrigues, and fine tannins.

Pair with: Roquefort and hard and semi hard French cheeses.
