French Red Wines

We don't place an emphasis on France (unlike many retailers) as we source our wines primarily on their own merits before appellation or region. The best French red wines tend to be expensive as there is plenty of demand from traditional retailers. But there are plenty of good French red wines at reasonable prices, particularly from the former Vin de Pays regions along the South coast.

The majority of our French offerings are natural, sulphite free wines from the Rhone and Languedoc regions. 

When it comes to Bordeaux I personally prefer a good Bordeaux blend from warmer more reliable climates outside France. In fact a "Bordeaux blend" is my favourite wine so I'm always keen to find good ones. We have some great examples from Argentina, South Africa and Italy. Give them a go - you would have to spend a lot more money to find anything anywhere near their equivalent from France!

  6. Cave de Cairanne Organic L'Insouciante AC Cotes Du Rhone

     A very pleasant warming red. At first it's a little tight with earthy aromas. Give it a bit of time to open up and it becomes very moreish in a natural style.
