Chateau de Caraguilhes 2014 Corbieres
What bottle should you take to dinner with friends? It’s a tricky one. You want something that doesn’t break the bank but will impress. Cheap bordeaux and burgundy are dodgy. Barefoot and Blossom Hill brand you as a cheapskate
Obviously it depends what you’re eating (if you know) but this bottle of Corbières should fit the bill with anything meaty, especially roasts and stews.
Mainly syrah with a good whack of beefy carignan and a dash of grenache it’s a bottle that you - and they - will love if you like warming spicy reds though at 13% it’s not over-alcoholic.
It’s also made from organically grown grapes and is suitable for vegetarians and vegans. And it looks smarter than it’s £9.99 price tag (though if Waitrose has one of its periodic 25% off deals I’d definitely take advantage and stock up)
