Archant

Every month The Wine Company selects the pick of the bunch. This month is 2012 Cotes-du-Rhone, Mas Arnaud, France.

Here is a vibrant, spicy, bramble-fruit-laden red which is perfect for summer drinking. Côtes-du-Rhône can be uninspiring in its mass-produced supermarket format, but this is a stunning example, from a top producer based in the village of Laudun. Blended from roughly equal parts of the syrah and grenache grapes, the bold plum and blackberry flavours and hints of pepper and woodsmoke of this wine make it perfect BBQ fayre, and a great partner for mature hard cheeses or your butcher’s best sausages. It could even be served lightly chilled for a little more freshness.

Available for £8.99 per bottle. Call 01206 713560 or visit www.thewinecompany.co.uk
