Smooooooth as you like

    • Virgile is a bit of a genius as far as we are concerned. He takes good grapes and turns them into great wine, then sells it to us at a ridiculously low price which benefits us, and, wonderfully, you too!
    • This is classic Southern French blend, so a lot of chunkiness from the Shiraz along with some delicious plum duff fruits - a kick of redcurrant from the Grenache helps it along the way and a slice of spice rounds it all off.
    • Steak. Big, bloody and ready for annihilation.

Serving advice
Serve at 18-20°C. Open/Decant 1 hour before serving

Local food match
Expressive and soft at the same time, it reveals the most refined cuisine and goes perfectly well with boeuf bourguignon or game cooked in pepper sauce, dry goat cheese, and dark chocolate desserts
