Refreshing Rosé Mixed Case Offer

"If you are into rosé, it's worth buying from a merchant who takes the genre seriously. Yapp Brothers in Wiltshire is one such..."
Fiona Beckett, The Guardian.

You could be forgiven for thinking that IGP stands for 'Incredibly Good Prices', as opposed to the more mundane 'Indication Geographique Protegée'. It's what we used to refer to as 'vin de pays' and is a step up from 'vin de france' that traditionally you refilled 'en vrac' from the winery.

If one was lunching under the pergola of a bistro in Southern France, these four are the kind of house rosés you'd be relishing. Even better when you learn from the label that the wine is made just a few kilometres down the road from where you are staying and you can stock up on a case for your hols. Whether you cross the channel or not this year, this dozen will come in handy over the summer.

This mixed case contains three bottles each of:

ROSÉ:
IGP Pays d'Oc: Domaine Girard 'Garriguette' Rosé 2019
IGP Méditerranée: Domaine Saint Gayan 'Argiles' Rosé 2019
IGP Côtes de Gascogne: Domaine Millet Rosé 2019
IGP Côtes de Thongue: Domaine Les Filles de Septembre Rosé 2019

This mixed case includes

3 x IGP Pays d'Oc: Domaine Girard 'Garriguette' Rosé 2019£0.00

From the Languedoc hills, this IGP rosé wine owes its freshness to planting at 350m altitude, receiving cooling breezes from both the Atlantic and Mediterranean. Classic Cabernet Franc gives beautiful berry fruit and acidity making this a wonderful food partner, particularly to sumptuous salads or chilli-spiced Asian dishes. ‘Garriguette’ is an early-ripening variety of strawberry with a particularly intense perfume. ‘Garrigue’ also references the scrub herbs and undergrowth common in the area.

3 x IGP Méditerranée: Domaine Saint Gayan 'Argiles' Rosé 2019£0.00

A new rosé wine from a three hundred year old estate. Who says there's no innovation in French winemaking? This hand-harvested, IGP Méditerranée rosé is just the thing to quench the thirst during a hot summer in the Vaucluse.

3 x Côtes de Gascogne: Domaine Millet Rosé 2019£0.00

Domaine Millet's rosé is a refreshing, dry, coral pink wine, sensibly bottled under screwcap making it handy for picnics and parties.

3 x Côtes de Thongue: Domaine Les Filles de Septembre Rosé 2019£0.00

The Thongue red is a Yapp bestseller, so we were delighted so discover that their coral-pink rosé wine ticks all the required boxes too - zesty, dry, refreshing and great value.
