Corbières is an AOC (Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée) wine region located in the Languedoc-Roussillon region in the south of France. The region is known for producing red, white and rosé wines. The red wines are made primarily from Carignan, Grenache and Syrah, with other grape varieties such as Mourvèdre, Cinsault and Lledoner Pelut also being used. The white wines are made from Grenache Blanc, Maccabeu, Roussanne and Marsanne. The wines are typically characterised by their full-bodied, rich, and complex flavours and aromas, with the red wines showing notes of dark fruit, spices, and herbs, and the white wines showing notes of citrus and stone fruits. The Corbières AOC was established in 1985 and it covers around 28,000 hectares of vineyards.
