Bordeaux Blend

Bordeaux Blend Not a grape variety, but this blend needs explanation. Red wine from Bordeaux (Claret) is usually a blend of two to five grape varieties Following the historic mix of grape varieties in the region’s vineyards Insurance against the failure of any one variety (e.g. Merlot to frost, Cabernet Sauvignon to September rains) Advantage in that different grape varieties bring...

La Combe Saint-Paul, Vermentino IGP Pays d'Oc, 2020

The Maury’s Vermentino (a grape also known as Rolle in Provence) has become one of our benchmark wines, sold in splendid volumes to our private customers and Michelin starred restaurants alike. Open, stone fruited attack gives way to a more gentle, pine-scented, well-textured mid-palate. Fruity but finishes dry. This is a fine all-rounder, as good an aperitif as with mediterranean fish or vegetable dishes. Now-2022
Vermentino loves the climate of the shores of the Mediterranean -...

From halves of Grenache Blanc and Macabeu, this is both an authentic Roussillon blend and an easy-drinking charmer. Blossom, citrus and stone fruit scents, then generous white peach and mandarin flavours, all given interest by a discreet pithiness and herbal hints. The finish is attractively stony.

Le Petit Pont Rose, IGP Pays d'Oc, 2020

We sell far more of the Petit Pont Rosé than we do of the equivalent white and red added together - that's how good this honest rosé is. From Grenache and Cinsault, in the Provençale style, pale, light and refreshing, it offers a scent of red berries and a pretty mouthful of strawberry and cranberry fruit, with a crisp finish. Nothing complicated, just a well-made, dry rosé perfect for regular consumption. Now-2022

Ferry Lacombe, Mystere, Rose, IGP Mediterranee, 2020

We introduced this last year and it was a huge hit: a smartly labelled, true Provence rosé bottled under screwcap at a reasonable price, coming from the vineyards of Château Ferry Lacombe (see below), supplemented by grapes sourced from neighbours. A blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Caladoc (a 20th century cross of Grenache and Malbec), it’s very pale, fragrant, light and fresh, and offers very pretty red-berried fruit with a hint of white peach. Juicy finish. Now-2022

Chateau La Grave, Minervois Rouge, Tristan & Julien, 2018

From the Orosquette family, named after two once tiny and now strapping cousins in their 20s, this is a bright, pleasing and uncomplicated red. From halves of Grenache and Syrah, this shows the strawberry sweetness of the former combined with the black fruit of the latter. So ripe and easy drinking, perfect to accompany anything from casseroles to box set TV watching on the sofa. Now-2022

This enticing red is named after the vineyard soils derived from grés rouge (red sandstone). 60% Syrah with 20% each of Mourvèdre and Grenache, basically unoaked (10% in old barrels). Lovely deep and glossy hue; and an enticing perfume of brambly fruit with a roasted hint. Youthful, deliciously ripe blackberriy and mulberry core with negligible tannins. A well-priced, smartly presented bottle from this prestigious appellation for enjoying immediately. Now-2022

Domaine du Grand Arc, Corbieres Rouge, Reserve Grand Arc, 2018

This is the latest vintage of one of our staples at SVS: about 50% Carignan, with 35% Grenache and 15% Mourvèdre, aged in two to four year old barrels. It;s a splendid robust wine: vivid, inky purple; exhales an expensive perfume of berries and vanilla, and delivers a spicy, red-fruited, lightly savoury mouthful, backed by well-judged fruit tannins. It's as gutsy as a more expensive southern Rhône and as elegant and concentrated as a much more expensive Bordeaux. Now-2024

Carignan

Carignan Carignan is the grape which really distinguishes the red wines of the Languedoc and Roussillon from those of the southern Rhône (in the latter Grenache is ubiquitous and dominant, and Syrah and Mourvèdre are the preferred blending grapes).
