Chateau de Corneilla Rivesaltes 1998
Whilst the Jongueres family can trace its history back to the fifteenth century, quality wine has only really started coming out of this estate in the last fifteen years. Located just south of Perpignan, the terroir always showed great potential, but it was with the arrival of William Jonqueres that the wines started becoming truly exciting.
The estate measures around 40 hectares of which the majority is planted with Syrah, Grenache and Mouvedre and is used to make the exceptionally good value Cotes du Rousillon wine. The style is one that seeks to capture all of the exuberance and soul of this wonderful part of the world. William also produces a small amount of Muscat and Rivesaltes which can hold their own against any sweet wines at this price point.
