The Winemakers

Pays de Vaucluse is the local wine of the southern Rhone valley – the vineyards surrounding the appellations of villages such as Gigondas, Cairanne and Séguret produce Pays de Vaucluse. Of course neither the terroir nor aspect here is the same as appellation contrôlée vineyards, the yields are higher, but the ample, full fruit they yield are indelibly stamped Rhône.

Vaucluse reds have the fullness of fruit and roundness of smooth tannins to make a wine with sufficient body to be enjoyed on their own as well as being stamped with sufficient character to partner food. Made under the expert hand of winemaker Eric Monnin.

The Wine

Instant first impressions are of a classic Rhone red, friendly and warming, ample, sweet rich fruit adorned with that classic Rhone hallmark – spice of Grenache sprinkled with Syrah; lusciously textured plum and strawberry fruit rounds off the palate, making this a delicious, uncomplicated medium-bodied, soft, fruity and very drinkable red … yet serious enough to accompany food..

Drink with hearty food such as grilled meats and casseroles. Also great with Pizzas and medium mature, hard cheeses.
