(2020) A 'Vin de France' so grapes could come from multiple regions, though I supect this is Languedoc fruit, the grapes "grown in clay-limestone soils in vineyards with dry and sunny exposures."  The result is a raspberry and violet-scented wine that is certainly fruit-forward and inviting, a nice little touch of herby, twiggy character in the background. In the mouth it is light-bodied and flooded with more of that sweet summer berry fruit, but there's good balance thanks to cherry-pit acidity and just enough of a tugging stripe of tannin. Note, this is on offer at just £6.99 at time of review, and that is the target price: the headline price of £10.99 is too much to pay. Watch the video for more information.
(2019) Certified organic, this Vin de France classified wine actually comes from Cabernet Franc vineyards in the Southwest of France, around Gers. It has a saturated, deep colour and an expressive, bright nose, a pinch of pepper over buouyant black fruits, perhaps a touch of carbonic maceration here? Certainly it has that lift and immediacy, as well as tell-tale Cab Franc nuances of capsicum. Juicy, vital and lithe on the palate, there's a linear flow of the black fruit, but always edged by tight tannins and juicy acidity. Very moreish, elegant and yet with a bit of food-friendly backbone too. £12.60 for Daily Drinker club members.
(2018) A lovely Grenache that is labelled as a 'Vin de France', so the fruit probably blended from two or more different appellations. It is full of deep plum and berry fruit, spice and a perfumed, floral touch too, but the freshness of the acidity and silky tannin structure give both crunch and a bit of savoury grip. A flavour-packed, but very approachable red wine that's broadly food-friendy. Members of thedailydrinker.co.uk club get 10% off too.

(2016) One third Burgundy, two thirds from the Southwest close to Limoux and from Ventoux/Luberon grown at some altitude. Quite a refined raspberry nose, quite vinous with a touch of briar and sappy quality. The palate is cool and sophisticated, the juicy berry sweetness and a rounding lick of vanilla, with very smooth tannins and good, fresh, lightening acidity.
