GREAT WINES FROM FAMILY VINEYARDS FOR YOUR ENJOYMENT

Carignan

Cuvee 181 Corbieres  2021, Les Clos Perdus
£ 20.20
50% Carignan, 35%Grenache, 15% Mourvèdre.

Expressive and attractive nose: black fruits, tobacco, and moist soil. Ripe and elegant on the palate. Notes of fresh blackberries and black cherries, which they easily combine with delicate tannins and attractive acidity.

Terra Noble Gran Reserva Carignan 2020, Chile
£ 16.00

With floral, redcurrant, tart cherry, cranberry and spicy balsam notes wafting over sleek tannins and rock-fresh acidity, it's the sort of red that goes with a wide range of foods. I enjoyed it with vine-wrapped roast quail (the pan deglazed lightly with pomegranate molasses) and an array of variously herbed and spiced roast vegetables (courgettes, peppers, aubergines, tomatoes, onions, garlic), but there aren't many savoury dishes I wouldn't try it with.
