If you love the richness of a fine French red, then this beautiful dozen is for you. There’s Bordeaux, of course, lusciously layered and textured, but you’ll also find a Rhône Grenache, a sumptuous Malbec, and three flavour-packed blends (one featuring Grenache as the main grape, one Syrah and the other Merlot) from the Languedoc in the sun-blessed south. One sip of their beautiful wild herb characters and deep, fruit and you’ll be transported to the French countryside. Salut!

Wine Summary
With Gold medals galore, Thierry Ferlay has made wine all over the world but remains fondest of the warm, ripe reds of the southern Rhône. He also adores their chief grape, Grenache – the most important variety in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. In fact he’s in charge of winemaking at this renowned appellation’s only co-operative winery, where all the growers are part-owners of the enterprise. Naturally, maximising quality is at the forefront of their minds, which explains this wine’s exceptional flavour and value. Made purely from Grenache, it has irresistible raspberry fruit, hints of spice and a peppery edge. Enjoy with ratatouille, lamb chops and homemade burgers. And because it’s so smooth and not too heavy, it’s ideal sipping on its own, too.

Wine Summary
Roquebrun is a cru area of the Languedoc's highly acclaimed Saint-Chinian appellation. It's rocky slopes produce wines that sing authentically of the wild herb garrigue and lavender fields that grow close by. This red is unusual for using a third each of the Bordeaux grapes Cabernet and Merlot, pairing them with the herbal scents and blackberry notes of classic Syrah. Winemaker behind this vintage is Alain Rogier – Winemaker of the Year in 2015 at, the prestigious International Wine Challenge. This red is all fruit, no oak, neatly captured with a screwcap. Ripe but with freshness and not too heavy. In fact, a deliciously well-balanced red that is lush solo, but just the ticket with grilled meats, shepherd's pie or pasta aubergine bake.

Wine Summary
Maison Legrand is the result of a collaboration between two good friends, both with long and varied wine careers that span the renowned regions of France as well as ventures in the New World. Together they've created a winery that aims to celebrate quality and the joy of classic varietals. Their Malbec is the product of over 40 years of combined wine experience and showcases the brilliance of Malbec from the Lot. Careful parcel selection and modern winemaking have created a deeply coloured red wine with the perfect balance of red summer fruit aromas, vibrant raspberry, plum and ripe cherry flavours and velvety tannins. It's a silky, expressive wine and the perfect choice for enjoying with pork chops, pasta dishes or a spicy bean wrap.

Wine Summary
Since Samuel Guibert returned from 7 years' experience winemaking in New Zealand, he's been reinvigorating his family's already exceptional estate with new ideas. His parents Aimé and Véronique founded the property in the late '60s. Former glovemakers to royalty, they discovered from a friend, the emininent Henry Enjalbert, that they had chosen an amazing site for their vineyards, with the potential to make magnificent Grand Cru style wines. Formed over thousands of years by slowly shifting glaciers, the poor, well drained soils are perfect for vines. History has shown this prognosis to be correct and Gassac is now known as the one true ‘Grand Cru’ of the south. Pensée is a real taste of the Languedoc – ripe black herbal fruit and tobacco spice.

Wine Summary
Bordeaux has been blessed in recent years with a run of terrific vintages. Jeb Dunnock recently wrote, "Bordeaux has another terrific vintage on its hands with 2020", while Jancis Robinson MW wrote, "Tasting the 2020s was a real joy." Here, we present a charming petit château Bordeaux from a small estate, close to the Garonne, in the south of the Entre-Deux-Mers. At 100 metres altitude and planted on sand, clay and silt soils, its vines – Merlot, plus Cabernets Franc and Sauvignon – thrive and have produced this most attractive claret. Already appealing, the wine is still young, so it's best opened early and decanted. A fine, well structured and well-balanced red to serve with classic red meat dishes, a rich veggie casserole or cheese.

Wine Summary
Hervé Sabardeil, our winemaker with limitless talent, has been making Cabalié, the big, ripe Catalan red, for over 15 years. He added the old-vine (Vieilles Vignes) edition in 2011, originally as a one off, but it was so popular we insisted he did it again. And again! The magic to this punchy red is really in the vines. At 60 to 100-years-old, yields are minute (about half of a Grand Cru claret). As a rule of thumb, the smaller the yield, the more concentrated the fruit, the more flavoursome the wine! That’s why we call it Cabalié’s Big Brother. Still made in the same style that was beloved by the Roman centurions and now our customers too, it packs even more flavour than the original. Ideal with garlic-roasted lamb, rich stews or cheese. “Nose of black fruits with white pepper and liquorice touches. Silky, solid attack driven by stewed fruits. A great wine...” (Gold medal, Gilbert & Gaillard International Challenge).
