“Me donner du vin!” is French for “Give me wine!” And while it may not be the politest phrase it was definitely the most useful. And as far as this is concerned you’ll be yelling it across the table. Unfussy to a tee this is easy French drinking at its best, with a nose full of ripe red berries, forest herbs and a tang of black olives. The palate is medium of body, driven by fruit flavours and soft tannins and the colour a gorgeous brick red. It’s nice to see an influx of well-priced French red (with a screw cap no less!) hitting our shores and at this price I can’t think of a good reason not to try it.
From the Winery
Parnasse is named after the mountain grass that flowers above our vineyards each spring (hence the gorgeous new label), marking the beginning of a long, languid summer. Francoise Estier weaves the character and strengths of a number of individual regions to create a wine style truly expressive of the South of France – beautifully ripe and expressive whilst softly structured and easy to appreciate.
