French Wine Holiday Mixed Case (6)

£70.00 GBP £77.00 GBP

Here is a wonderful selection of whites and reds from different regions around France. As we can't travel right now you can enjoy your own wine tour of France at home.

Pasquiers Sauvignon Blanc (pays d'oc)

A wonderful and innovative blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Vermentino from Southern France. Luscious exotic fruit aromas from the Vermentino are balanced by the clean, zingy fruit of Sauvignon, resulting in a wonderfully aromatic smooth dry white.

Best served chilled and ideal as an aperitif, but also complements seafood such as mussels and chicken dishes. The exotic flavours also complement Chinese and other oriental dishes.


Jaboulet Cotes Du Rhone Blanc (organic) (Rhone) 


This producer has a long history of winemaking in the Rhone region in France, they began in 1834. Their estates are now certified organic and the team broadly follow bio-dynamic principles. 

The name ‘Côtes du Rhône’ is more readily associated with red wines, but this is a lovely example of the white wines it can offer. This wine is made from a blend of white local grape varieties including Grenache Blanc, Marsanne and Viognier. An elegant wine, it has floral aromas and flavours of citrus and peach.

 

Rimauresq Rose  (Provence) 

The Côtes de Provence Rosé is a blend of all the region's grape varieties, with Grenache as the main constituent, but includes Syrah, Mourvedre, Rolle, and an ancient, lesser known varietal indigenous to Provence called Tibouren.

This huge blend gives the wine wonderful layers of complexity, but don't worry, it's still quintessentially Provençal in style. It has vibrant red berry aromas, combined with creamy and spicy notes.


Boutinot Côtes Du Rhône Les Coteaux (Rhone) 


Boutinot’s love affair with the Southern Rhône spans thirty years of making wine in the region.

This classic Côtes du Rhône Villages is enriched with specially-selected parcels from the cru vineyards of Séguret, Sablet and Cairanne. Brambly fruit underpinned by subtle oaky nuances, lovely sweet spice - warm star anise with a touch of cinnamon.

Chateau Durfort (Corbieres)


The Cellier des Demoiselles was created in 1914, just before the First World War. The name is a tribute to the women of the village who, in the absence of their men, strove to preserve our wines and our Terroir.

A deep colour with violet reflections. Notes of grilled spices and violets. Good tannic richness for a full bodied wine, rounded with buttery undertones, characterized by ideal qualities for keeping.


Alchemy 100 year old vine Carignan (Languedoc) 


Established in 2002 Alchemy Wines source the finest grapes from around southern France. The intention of the project was to create wine in a ‘New World’ style using the traditional French varieties.

A combination of handpicking, extremely low yields, minimal traditional winemaking techniques and time in a combination of America and French oak produces this wine of fantastic concentration. This concentration is also a result of the incredibly old vines used to produce the wine - 100 years old! As a grape vine ages, it produces less fruit but what does produces becomes richer and more intense.

Aromas of ripe summer pudding berry fruits and subtle vanilla intensify on the palate. With smooth velvety tannins on the long complex.
