“Slightly Burly, warming dark fruits, with a good dry finish. This is a classic French style of wine, the sort you could happily drink with most mid-week meals.” John Wilson, Irish Times

“Medium-bodied with flavours of peach skin and white peach flesh. White pepper spice on the finish is lifted with refreshing acidity. Enjoy with a herby vegetarian terrine sprinkled with petals of chive flowers.” Liam Campbell, Irish Independent

“The lighter side of Languedoc with easy smooth dark fruits and hints of spice. Perfect glugging wine to drink on its own, with grilled sausages or any other red meat.” John Wilson, The Irish Times

“Very approachable. The blend works beautifully – apples and pears chopped up and soused with lemon-zested cream. Something biscuity. Lots of flavour.” Jancis Robinson.
