Les Six, Cairanne Cotes du Rhone

‘Les Six’, 6 varieties, some familiar, others less so, combine beautifully to make one superb Cairanne.   In an appellation often dominated by just two varieties, ‘Les Six’ is a new style of Cairanne which, due to the ancient varieties of Carignan Noir, Cinsault and Counoise included in the assemblage, is also a Cairanne whose heart holds dear the traditions of yesteryear. 2011 is the first vintage of ‘Les Six’ and is exuberantly and lusciously fruity: the six grape varieties each bring nuances of aromas and ripples of texture which fill the palate with wells of depth and propel the plump flavours to a finish which is warming, smooth and immediately appealing.

 

Food Recommendation:  This wine goes great with lamb dishes or most grilled meats and roasted vegetable dishes
