75cl * Vegan * 13.5% ABV * Rhône Valley, France
This is a French Midi red - being the red wine you'll find atop of tables from the southern Rhône valley down to the Mediterranean coast. Made since 1984, this stalwart cuvee is a typically Southern French red wine, combining the fullness of very ripe dark berry fruit with smooth tannins it makes for a wine with sufficient body to be enjoyed on its own as well as being stamped with sufficient character to partner food. This is demonstrated by the gluggable blend of soft Grenache sprinkled with some spicy Syrah; textured plum and strawberry fruit rounds off the palate, making this a delicious, uncomplicated medium-bodied, soft, fruity and very drinkable red.
Crunchy and spicy at the same time, this medium-bodied wine will suit any occasion, from a traditional aperitif on the terrasse or as an accompaniment to tasty food such as barbecued meats and grilled vegetables.
