    Château de Corneilla

    Near the châteaux of the Cathars, Jonquères Philippe d'Oriola gives shape to this remarkable style of wine, with respect for both nature and tradition. The name still means a lot to this day, signifying the pride of this Catalan land and the sporting achievements of Pierre Jonquères d'Oriola and Christian d'Oriola, as they won numerous Olympic medals in the arts of riding and fencing!

  • Jean-Michel Deluc says

    A wine made for pleasure! At Château de Corneilla, fun and quality are the objectives so they try not to take ourselves too seriously, but at the same time ensuring that the wines are made to the best of their ability. This cuvee is a blend of the very best Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre on the Aspres terroir: 50% Syrah, for freshness and finesse, 25% Grenache for weight and fruit and finally 25% Mourvèdre for character and complexity. A full-on wine that you can easily appreciate in its youth but which will bloom over the course of its life, if you have the power to resist opening a bottle up immediately, that is!
