Wines included

2022 - 2024

Marcillac ‘Lo Sang del Pais', Domaine du Cros 2020

Fer servadou, aka mansois, is the grape behind the lifeblood (sang) of the steep, iron-rich slopes of the Aveyron in south-west France. Ruby-red, full in this exceptional vintage and rounded with raspeberry and plum flavours to wash down a good saucisson.

2021 - 2024

Corse Calvi Rouge, Clos Culombu 2021

The wines of the beautiful holiday destination of Corsica deserve greater recognition. Generously flavoured red, redolent of wild herbs from the surrounding maquis and a touch of strawberry. The tannins are present, yet nicely rounded with an impression of sweetness on the palate. This is long and refined, and perfect with slow-cooked pork.

France £13.95 per bottle
2022 - 2025

Côtes du Roussillon Blanc, Cuvée Cavalcade, Château de Corneilla 2021

Classy, bone-dry white from the Roussillon made using a majority of grenache blanc. Savoury, herby, complex and long, and with just a hint of oak. Paella from across the border is a fine perfect match, as is a Mediterranean fish stew.

France £10.95 per bottle
2022 - 2025

Chardonnay Les Gravettes IGP Ardèche, Vignerons Ardéchois 2021

The southern Ardèche is a good place to find chardonnay. Here it thrives on the stony, sandy soils and long, hot summers, and is picked early to conserve all the fruit and crispness. Enjoy this with fish or poultry, or, indeed, on its own.

France £9.25 per bottle
2022 - 2024

Corbières-Boutenac Rouge Cuvée Prestige, Château Ollieux-Romanis 2020

From the estate that makes the Society's Corbières, but from the Boutenac sub-district – a sort of regional cru – this is on a grander scale, with more weight of fruit, concentration and length. Deep in colour, ripe, juicy and delicious.

France £13.95 per bottle
2022 - 2030

Coteaux d'Aix en Provence La Source, Château Vignelaure 2021

A full, rich-tasting blend of vermentino (known locally as rolle), semillon and just a touch of sauvignon, that is full, fruity and long and from an excellent property better known for its reds. Match this dry white with Mediterranean-style dishes like fish soups or perhaps fish curry.

France £12.50 per bottle
