(2022) From vineyards across the Languedoc, this is mostly Grenache and Syrah, with a little Carignan, Cinsault and Mourvèdre. 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 £7 until 17th July 2022, and also available in 187.5cl bottles, priced £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.
(2011) This Pays d'Oc Rosé from vineyards between Montpellier and Narbonne has a bold cerise colour and cherry bubblegum aromas. With 13% ABV and bottled in screwcap it is a modern, up-front style, the fruit on the palate being full and ripe, with juicy sweetness and plenty of zip into the finish which shows a touch of spice.
