Other French Reds and Rosés

"CUVEÉ FANNY 2017" Rosé Vin de France  Domaine Puech-Berthier
This is made from a blend of Cinsault and Grenache. Pretty, pale colour; dry, perfumed; faintly perfumed finish.


Ch. LASTOURS 2015 AC Gaillac
This is reliably delicious, and advantageously priced - looks and tastes more expensive than it is. Grape varieties: Syrah, Fer, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.


BEAUJOLAIS 2016 Domaine des Marrans
A new addition to the range we ship from the Domaine des Marrans. Yields were low in 2016, resulting in a wine with plenty of concentration. Impressive effort for a plain Beaujolais.


"LE CROIZILLON" AC Cahors 2016 Ch. les Croisille
Fresh, lively, delicious Cahors - not heavy and black! Lovely winemaking


BEAUJOLAIS VILLAGES 2016 Domaine des Marrans
Everything a Beaujolais Villages should be: bright, cheerful, jolly.


A blend of old-vine Grenache, Syrah, Carignan and Mourvèdre.
MAGNUMS (2011 vintage) also available @ £26.50


FLEURIE 2015 Domaine des Marrans
This estate is based in Fleurie, and this is their main wine. Copybook Fleurie - fresh, floral and bouncy.


"CALCAIRE" AC Cahors 2015 Ch. les Croisille
More serious than "Le Croisillon" above, this spends 18 months in oak barrels, and can be cellared for a few years yet, but is completely approachable now. This estate is up in the hills, not down in the valley, giving the wines a bouncy freshness due to the altitude.
