The Southern Rhone Mixed Case - Includes the three wines featured in 'The Sunday Times' 5th February 2017 - Best UK Price Guaranteed!
Contains two bottles each of the following three wines:
Domaine La Haute Marone Sablet Cotes du Rhone Villages
"This is the sort of rich, smooth, unctuous red wine that it is difficult not to appreciate. With plenty of ripe, fleshy fruit, it is smooth, supple and will pair well with any red meats. Keep it going for cheese as well".
Boutinot Les Six Cairanne Cotes du Rhone Villages'
"A mind-blowing six grape varieties go into this, from grenache noir, syrah and the little-known counoise. But all you really need to whet your appetite is the thought of soft, gentle fruit and a little rustic pepperiness. Oh, and the fact that it will go superbly with roast lamb".
Chateau L'Ermitage Cuvee Sainte-Cecile Rouge
"Southwest of Avignon, this district enjoys more than 2,700 hours of sunshine a year. Made by Jerome Castillon, Chateau L'Ermitage not only possesses an abundance of warming, ripe fruit, but there is a freshness and structure to this wine".
The Sunday Times, February 5 2017 -
'If ever there was a month to huddle up around the fire with a rich, inky red, it is February. Now is the time for wine that reminds us of rolling vineyards in mid-August, summer holidays in the south of France and, above all, warmth.
In Paris, they have known this for years. Walk into one of its zinc-topped wine bars, such as Willi’s, a short walk from the Louvre, and you are likely to be handed a glass of something from the southern Rhône, where classic red grape varieties — grenache, cinsault, carignan, syrah and mourvèdre — vie to produce full-bodied crowd-pleasers. Many offer some of the best value on the high street today, too'.
