Languedoc Wines that Jazz it Up like Charlie Mingus, Castelmaure

I am not a Font fanatic or expert yet when I visit an online destination, look at a book, a poster for an event or a wine label, I can appreciate a good looking Typeset.


The label on the 2007 Castelmaure Corbieres is poetry in motion more than technical sheet (if you speak French)...

Body and soul as is the Castelmaure homepage with vivid black and white photos and the castanets of Isabel's Table Dance (Charlie Mingus, Tijuana Moods) as its soundtrack.

The self described insolent and independent vignerons of Castelamaure created this Corbieres with 40 % Syrah, 35 % Grenache and 25 % Carignan.

"Black currents, wild berries on the nose accented by spices and scents of the garrigue, gentle tannins, seductive yet powerful, will conquer you" according to Cave Part des Anges.

Born in the small village of Embres & Castelmaure (population: 154 in 2007).

All I have to do now is taste it.

Thanks to Steph Poulart for wine spotting.
