Corbieres-Boutenac is an appellation in the Languedoc region of France based around the commune of Boutenac and nine neighbouring communes that lie between Narbonne and Carcassonne. The appellation was created in 2005, having previously been a sub-region of the broader Corbieres appellation. The appellation is reserved for still blended red wines only. The principal grape varieties are Grenache and Mourvedre supplemented by Carignan and Syrah. Carignan, Grenache and Mourvedre must comprise at least 70% of the blend and Carignan must not be less than 30% or greater than 50% of the blend.
