The fine French country shortlist case

Case of 6
The classic regions of france don't have all the tunes. Indeed, regions from Provence to the south-west, via Languedoc, all have extraordinary fine wines to offer. With this in mind, buyer Marcel Orford-Williams has selected six jewels of the south to explore and enjoy, all in one case.

Wines included

Corbieres Rouge, Alba, Château Ollieux-Romanis 2017

In this cuvée, made from grenache and cinsault, Pierre Borie is determined to reproduce the kind of style found in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The absence of syrah means the colour is relatively pale, and the wine is very silky, round and spicy and with great length and complexity.

France £23.00 per bottle

Faugéres Les Bancels, Domaine de Cébene 2017

A very fine expression of Faugeres and made from syrah and grenache, planted on north-facing schists and mourvèdre, planted fully south facing. This is complex and quite exquisite.

France £15.50 per bottle

Madiran, Château Bouscassé 2016

Alain Brumont has been the ambassador for the wines of Madiran and he remains the leading producer. This is Madiran at its most refined – dark, full and rich but also with complexity and length of flavour.

France £18.00 per bottle

Cabardès, Esprit de Pennautier 2017

The top wine from one of the outstanding estates of the Languedoc. distinguishes Cabardès from the rest is the choice of varieties, which has to include both Bordeaux and Rhône grapes. The result is dark and truffle-like, with the polish that comes from long barrel ageing.

France £17.00 per bottle

Cahors, Clos Triguedina 2017

Appropriately dark, full-flavoured south-western red from one of France's iconic vineyards, popular here since the days of Queen Eleanor. Ripe with some concentration and plenty of dark fruit flavours, and perfect with a Sunday roast.

France £17.00 per bottle

Coteaux d'Aix en Provence, Château Vignelaure 2015

2015 was an outstanding vintage for this richly scented cabernet-syrah blend. There is blackcurrant and blackberry with a touch of olive, sprinkled with Provençal herbs. Smooth tannins are the result of long ageing in barrel and bottle.

France £19.50 per bottle
