The Molinier's dry Costières de Nîmes rosé wine is blended from equal parts of Grenache Noir and Syrah. It has quite a full-bodied palate so it stands up well to a garlic-rich aioli or spicy merguez sausages - ideal for picnics and barbecues.
The red Costières de Nîmes wine from Château Roubaud is made from a blend of 30% each of Syrah, Grenache Noir and Carignan along with 10% Cinsault. Bursting with ripe garrigue fruit over earthy tannins and scrubland scents, this crowd-pleasing, chest-thumping red is the perfect foil for robust, rustic dishes – cassoulet or pot au feu spring to mind.
The Thongue red is a Yapp bestseller, so we were delighted so discover that their coral-pink rosé ticks all the required boxes too – zesty, dry, refreshing and great value.
Hugues and Roland’s 'Domaine Les Filles de Septembre' Cuvée Tradition has rapidly gained a loyal following and is now one of our top-selling wines. It has a joyful summer berry bouquet and juicy palate of youthful, red fruit, with bright peppery undertones over a background of supple, ripe tannins. Think Bordeaux meets the Languedoc.
Julien Seydoux's delicious white Faugères is from a blend of 45% Marsanne, 45% Roussanne and 10% Viognier and it's a versatile partner for fish and poultry dishes. This bottling is called 'L'Impertinent' in homage to Julien's cheeky Fox Terrier who is depicted on the label.
A spicy, mid-weight Faugères red wine comprised of Syrah, Grenache Noir, Mourvèdre, Cinsault and Carignan. Food-wise, bavette frîtes, confit du canard or a fricassee of wild mushrooms would be ideal.
'Le Pas de Zarat' is the Domaine's special cuvée, produced only when favourable conditions prevail, and in limited volumes. Made from a blend of Carignan, Grenache Noir and Syrah, it is packed with dark garrigue fruit scents and tastes with wonderful spicy undertones and pitchy tannins.
A long-time quest for a great value Minervois came to fruition with this cracking little red wine from Domaine Le Cazal. It is a traditional un-oaked wine with fine garrigue aromas and a spicy mid-weight palate of dark berry fruit offset by supple tannins.
A densely structured wine with complex Autumnal fruit flavours supported by rugged tannins with spicy undertones.
If one were looking for a wine that exemplifies how the Languedoc offers terrific quality at modest prices this would silence any sceptics! Blended from Southern staples Syrah, Grenache Noir and Cinsault, it has a fresh, lip-smacking finish that guarantees you'll want to take another sip.
Unmistakably a Mediterranean red, this rich, hedonistic blend of Syrah & Grenache from the Herault is an ideal match for simple, hearty cuisine.
This peachy blend of typical Rhône varietals (Viognier, Roussanne and Grenache) grown on the edge of the Cévennes, stands head and shoulders above most Languedoc whites.
