A visit to the South of France!

As the first chills of winter bite, and the southerly howls around our ears, wouldn't it be nice to be lazing on the beach at St Tropez, dining on the cliffs at Lyon or perhaps walking through the sunny streets of Gras?

Wine can take you away to magical places, with just a hint of bouquet or that first drop on your tongue, so this week we thought we should transport you to the south of France, a region justly famous for its wine.

5 wonderful wines, including two from the eminent Monsieur Guigal, one of the region's most celebrated producers to conjour up the magic of the south!

Enjoyez vous!

Salud!
Miguel and Jean-Pierre

  • Guigal Condrieu “La Doriane” 2011 NZD $104.95NZD $94.95 Rhone Valley
    Not many other regions in the world can match Condrieu and their particular style of wine made from Viognier. This is about richness, complexity and lushesnous, it is a wine that can be enjoyed relatively young but will also age. Thoroughly spicy, honeyed and beautifully perfumed, full body with high acidity and pin point accuracy. If you haven’t tried this wine before, you should because it is completely unique!
  • Guigal Gigondas 2011 NZD $54.95NZD $49.95 Rhone Valley
    Gigondas for many years has been an underrated appellation, this particular appellation can produce full bodied wines that are floral, spicy and tremendously complex. Made from a blend of Grenache, Mourvedre and Syrah, even though it is a little bit young now however over the next 4-5 years it will develop into a suave, leathery, beautifully textured wine. Cellar for 4-5 years.
  • Gabriel Meffre Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2011 NZD $68.95NZD $64.95 Rhone Valley
    One of the most celebrated appellations in the Cotes du Rhone, Chateauneuf is synonymous with full bodied, complex structured wines that can age for many years. Gabriel Meffre is an outstanding producer that offers excellent value for money. Made from a blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre and Cinsault, it has an expression of black pepper, leather, black olive and tapenade. A little on the young side however with 4-5 years aging this is guaranteed to impress.
  • Alain Graillot Saint Joseph 2008 NZD $44.95NZD $39.95 Rhone Valley
    This is another of his great offerings that even though quite different in style to the Crozes Hermitage, it delivers incomparable value for money. Made from Syrah and sometimes a little Viognier added for colour and aroma, the wine is expressive, full bodied, dense and enormously concentrated. For anyone with an appreciation of Syrah will love this the rustic but yet elegant Saint Joseph. As is always the case Alain Graillot sets the standard in this part of the Rhone his wines are structured and age worthy yet very approachable when young, it will develop for the next 4-5 years.
  • Bruno Thierry Cotes du Rhone 2012 NZD $22.95NZD $19.95 Rhone Valley
    Another of our latest arrivals from the outstanding producer of Bruno Thierry, a producer that has been making wine in the Rhone Valley since 1985. This is very much their straightforward Cotes du Rhone made from mainly Syrah and a little Grenache however when it comes to quality versus price, it is unbeatable, medium to full bodied with hints of black pepper, tapenade and dry herbs, its focused with vibrant acidity, very well balanced and structured. A wine that will sit very comfortably along other Syrah at $30 plus. Drink now or keep for another 2-3 years.
