Red Wine from France - Rhone
A weighty syrah from the deep south, full-bodied, tarry and thickly textured yet not without freshness. Very full-bodied in 2019 and perfect with rich game or a roast.

Mas de Bressades
This is a well-established estate a dozen or so miles from the centre of Nîmes. The Marès family has been here for six generations, closely involved with wine and not just here but in Bordeaux as well.
The Costières lie on a low and windswept plateau between Nîmes and the Rhône delta. Soils are able to retain humidity here, which explains why, of all grapes, syrah and mourvèdre do as well as the ubiquitous grenache.
