Château de Luc, Corbières Blanc (Organic) (Sustainable) Tasting notes:
Chateau de Luc is a remarkably fresh and delightfully balanced white from the south of France with fleshy fruit, savoury complexity and a whole host of pretty floral aromas including hawthorn and honeysuckle. The warmth of the 2018 vintage has really suited these grape varieties, bringing out fleshy, herbal, aniseed and
white pepper notes to balance the ripeness. Big but wholesome.
Chateau de Luc would be great with fish and chips, or a barbecued trout stuffed with herbs.
The Fabre Family have been producing Chateau de Luc and other wines in one way or another for over four hundred years. In 1711, the family settled in Gasparets, near Narbonne, in the Aude department of France. Louis Fabre is head of the family concern, which now includes five estates, having taken the reins in 1982. From 2014 he has been joined by a new generation, his daughters and niece: Clémence, Paule and Jeanne, respectively in charge of export sales, accounting and oenotourism.
Since 1991, Famille Fabre has been converted to organic viticulture and today 100% of its vineyards are certified organic, producing concentrated, flavoursome wines with genuine provenance. As part of a passion for sustaining centuries of winemaking tradition while incorporating the tenets of social equality, ecological responsibility, and economic viability, the Famille Fabre estates are all HVE certified and are certified fully organic by ECOCERT.
