Gayda Flying SoloBuy it here!

 

This award winning Grenache/Syrah blend from the Languedoc in southern France is delicious! Red cherries and strawberries, soft velvety tannins and a lovely long finish make this a great wine for pairing with food or just drinking on its own.  At just £8.75 a bottle it's definitely worth a try!

 

Wine of the day...


 

Pertuisane Vielles Vignes, 2005 Buy it here!

 

From the Côtes Catalanes close to the Pyranees comes this beautiful Grenache. The vines used to create this powerful red are ancient, the youngest being over 60 years old. Huge, bold black fruit flavours and rich with minerality, this intense wine will taste amazing paired with slow-cooked beef.

This week at a Grand Cru Co is Rhone varietal week. We are going to focus on some great examples of the typical grape varietals and blends found in this region of Southern France. We will look at how these varietals have flourished in other parts of France and the world. For reds we have Syrah (also known as Shiraz), Grenache and Mourvèdre and for whites Rousanne, Viognier and Marsanne.

 

Todays wine...


Columbo & Fille Saint Joseph 2013Buy it here!
2013 was a great vintage for the Northern Rhone and this is a fine example of a Syrah from the region. Aged in oak barrels for at least 12 months, this wine has a dense richness with black fruit flavours. Works brilliantly with red meat.

 

Such a rainy day... But not to worry! We have another beautiful wine of the day!

This is absolutely gorgeous; crisp and dry yet fruity. White peach and elderflower grace the nostrils and continue their journey into the palate to really define these flavours and put this wine at the top of your list of favourites. Come have a taste!
