What a perfect way to start a weekend. This Coteaux de Languedoc from the south of France boasts a lovely blend of syrah, carignan and mourvèdre. Medium ruby red in colour, there is definitely a hint of garnet. On the nose, it’s quite fragrant, showing dark fruit, floral notes and spices.

The structure of this wine is really nice and quite balanced: medium bodied, medium tannins, medium acidity. On the palate, same dark fruit, with cedar, black pepper and those spices from the nose. Paired surprisingly well with Moroccan beef stew.
