Discovery Staycation

Are you not able to go visit the vineyards of France just yet? Let me take you on a ride through France and do the tasting with you. Let’s start with a typical summer Barbeque classic, a rosé from Provence called the Jolies Filles. A typical blend of provence rosé from Grenache & Cinsault. It will give you a pale pink rosé with aromas of peaches and apricots and on the mouth the to be expected citrus, just a lovely treat for a hot summer’s day. Next we make a move to Bordeaux but not for the most expected red wine, it’s a white made from Sauvignon blanc and Sémillon. It gives very nice floral aromas and citrus and the oak aging makes it a long lasting finale, perfect with a fish on the BBQ. And for the last move back to the Cote du Rhone, a grand classic of your summer holidays in France brought to you in the UK. A medium bodied red full of black fruits, this wine is grown close to avignon and has every year won very good awards in blind tasting, the fruit is fresh and mixed with some peppery notes. A very powerful wine but never overwhelming, simply superb.
