Consistently award winning year on year, this rich, fruit driven yet complex wine shows how well Mourvèdre can stand on its own when given the right care and attention.

This Pays d’Oc is more complex and layered than a wine of this price range has any reason to be. Consistently award winning year on year, this is a must try for anyone visiting the mighty Co-Op. Deep purple black colour with concentrated black fruits (Blackcurrant, black cherry), mingling with licorice, herbs and a hint of toast on the nose. Fresh but concentrated inky black fruits (blackcurrant, plum) and a thick vein of charcoal minerality winding through, before a herb laden (thyme/bay) and long toasty finish, which draws to close with a spike of dark chocolate to see it off. £5.99 on offer or 6.99 full price; either way a bargain.
