Château de Corneilla was built in the XIIth century by the Knight Templars. Philippe

Cavalcade Rouge has been aged in French oak for 12 months, intense red in colour with plenty of red and black fruits on the nose. This is reflected on the palate with hints of spice and silky tannins. Excellent with steak or braised mushrooms.
