A little slice of Languedoc heaven

    • Virgile Joly is manic about organic - seriously.  But unlike many of his fellow hippies, he's also obsessed with making sure the wine tastes great, as well as loving the earth.
    • A mixture of Grenache and Shiraz, it's bursting with joyful ripe red fruits, with the smooooothest of finishes. It's just oh-so-drinkable.
    • Grab a big leg or shoulder of lamb, slow-cook it so it melts off the bone, lashings of mint sauce, and several bottles of this.

Ageing advice
Drink now to 2021

Serving advice
Served slightly chilled but not cold it will warm up and open. Decanting helps as we always drink it quite early after bottling, when it is still young so need some help to open up.

Local food match
Lamb, grilled veg or pizza all go well with this wine.
