IGP rosés from Gascony, the Languedoc and Mediterranée.
"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:
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
