Deep ruby in colour with a wonderful nose of spice and dark fruits this is a real winter warmer. The palate is rich and ripe with layers of fruit and spice supported by fine tannins.

Domaine De La Janasse Cotes Du Rhone 2016 (1 x 75cl)

In 1967, Aimé Sabon came back from his military service. He took over his father’s vines, who used to take his grapes to the wine cooperative. In 1973, Aimé built his own cellar. Domaine de la Janasse was born and named after the family farm that was in Courthézon, in the locality of “La Janasse”. Aimé was ambitious. He knew he had fabulous soil and he wanted to expand the estate by acquiring new plots. From 15 hectares at the very beginning, La Janasse has now reached more than 90 hectares.

This wine comes from a single plot located to the east of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, in the city of Courthézon. The vines are grown without pesticides or insecticides and  the manure used is natural. The land is worked without herbicide to maintain the health and flexibility of the soil. 

Featuring a beautiful structure, this Côtes-du-Rhône develops notes of fresh fruit (crushed strawberry, blackberry) on crisp, supported by a hint of liquorice. Moderately tannic, this wine retains its gluttony on grilled meat or fresh tomatoes pie. Drink within the next five years.

Domaine de Mourchon Family Reserve Syrah AOP Cotes du Rhone-Villages Seguret 2015 (1x 75cl)

We also highly recommend the rest of the Domaine de Mourchon range, click here.

Set in a secluded valley between the picturesque village of Séguret and Mont Ventoux, Domaine de Mourchon was created by the McKinlay family in 1998. The vineyard had some twenty hectares of mature vines but no facility to make wine so, using modern technology and high standards, a winery was constructed and completed in 2000. They are currently in the process of converting to organic farming and expect to be fully certified in 2020. 

100% Syrah from 60-year-old vines on pure grey sandstone soils on steep slopes. Yields are just 15hl/ha (incredibly low!), producing a wine of great intensity. The Family Reserve Syrah wine is vinified in small stainless steel tanks, before it undergoes ageing in oak barrels for about 10 months.

This wine is very deep purple in colour – almost ink-like – with a nose suggesting blackcurrants, plums and liquorice on a spicy background. The palate is elegant and long with pronounced fruit intensity, as above, and powerful tannins.

Enjoy with duck confit, juicy meat, creamy cheeses or chocolate desserts with red fruit coulis.
