(2022) From vineyards across the Languedoc, this is mostly Grenache and Syrah, with a little Carignan, Cinsault and MourvÃ¨dre. Pale salmon pink, it's bubblegum fresh with raspberry and cherry, a hint of sweetness on the palate, but the acid does balance into the finish. On offer at Â£7 until 17th July 2022, and also available in 187.5cl bottles, priced Â£2.25.
(2011) A Cinsault wine from the French south, this has quite a deep cherry colour and attractively floral, rose-hip and raspberry brightness on the nose. On the palate there is considerable sweetness, and whilst it is full and rich, a little more crunch and less sugar would have earned an extra point.
