(2017) Another pale wine in the ProvenÃ§al idiom. this comes from the Languedoc and blends two local grapes to excellent effect. Delicately touched by pink grapefruit, redcurrant and raspberry on the nose, the creamy but light-bodied palate shows more delicate fruit - wild strawberries and raspberries - but a lovely freshness to the acidity to give it a shimmering, lacework finish.
(2016) A southern French blend of Marsanne, Roussanne and Vermentino from CorbiÃ¨res, this organic wine is unoaked and picking early to retain acidity and freshness has worked a treat. The nose has some of the Marsanne peach and apricot allure, but there's a lemon and lime peel freshness too, and a sense of coolness. In the mouth it is crisp and alive, delicate, with a pear juice freshness but then a lovely sour lemon bite of acidity to lengthen and add a twist of interest on the finish.
(2015) 12% abv. Yet another Provence look- and taste-alike, with its pale colour and pretty redcurrant and gentle peach fruit. Good dry acidity, lots of pithiness, a twist of dill or chicory, in actually one of the better pale imitations around. On offer currently.
(2013) A pale salmon pink 'Vin de France' wine with a very attractive nose, a touch of spice and pepper, a touch of Pinot truffle and very nice strawberry beneath. Crisp, bone dry and well defined on the palate, the redcurrant and cranberry dry fruit is food friendly and appealing.
