Yapp Côtes du Rhône Red 2022
This terrifically versatile mid-weight Grenache - Syrah blend derives from the 'département' of the Ardèche and is classified as Côtes du Rhône. Garnet in colour with a bouquet of cranberry and black cherry lifted by pomegranate and sandalwood, its rounded palate of forest fruit and peppery spice make it immensely easy-drinking.
From steeply-terraced vineyards around the village of Bourg-Saint-Andéol, with similar soils to much of the Rhône valley - 'galets roulés' and gravel. Serve with Toulouse sausages, Melanzane alla Parmigiana or a lamb tagine with couscous.

The Vignerons Ardéchois Cave Co-opérative (also known as U.V.I.C.A - Union des Vignerons des Coteaux de l'Ardèche) has its roots in the late 1960s when the Presidents of 7 major Cave Co-opératives agreed a unified policy of modernisation, re-planting and marketing. Based in the town of Ruoms, 20 kilometres south of Aubenas this forward-thinking, modernist collective has done much to revive the fortunes of this ancient vine-area, which dates back to Roman times. Today the Vignerons Ardéchois co-operative represents some 2000 grape growers from 21 different smaller co-operatives. U.V.I.C.A is a terrific source of keenly-priced, well made single variety wines and accessible, fruit-driven blends.
