An old favourite cuvée from an old favourite grower, a blend of Syrah and Grenache, aged for just a few months in old(er) oak barrels. We have been buying from Les Vignes de l'Arque for almost 20 years (in other words, for some time before we even began importing). And as always, this one is bang on form, similar in style to a good Côtes du Rhône Villages and offering rich, ripe, herb and spice-infused black fruit aromas, with hints of leather and tar. The palate offers a veritable bucket-load of ripe bramble and cassis fruit flavours, with notes of roasted beef/lamb and garrigue herbs - in fact, both fruity and savoury in equal measures - with chunky tannins, plenty of juicy acidity and a persistent finish. It is very young and has *a lot* more to give, over the next 3 to 5 years, but is already deliciously drinkable.

This is the estate's flagship red wine, aged for 18 months in barrel, and with a deep purple robe. The nose is really complex and packed with dark bramble and cassis aromas, curry spices, garrigue herbs, toasty oak and damp earth. The palate is similarly concentrated and full of dense, ripe black fruit flavours, laced with all manner of licorice, peppery spice, coffee and savoury/herby nuances, all wrapped around a core of chocolatey tannins and just the right level of balancing acidity. The spicy, eau de vie-infused mid palate is countered by a long, cool, gently minty finish. Although approachable now, with food, this wine will undoubtedly reward cellaring over the next 5 to 8 years (possibly more). It's a class act and provides quite brilliant value for money.

A limpid, bright red colour with small red fruits, pepper and spice aromas and flavours, with fine, soft tannins and juicy acidity. There is a refreshing bitter cherry note on the finish, together with a hint of dark chocolate. This cuvée used to be made in a big, bold, super-concentrated style, but this latest vintage is lighter and fresher and shows much more elegance. Drinking well already, but will age nicely for 2 or 3 years..

A dark purple core, fading to deep ruby red, with ripe red and black fruit aromas and notes of toffee, mocha and classy oak. The palate offers sweet bramble and blackcurrant flavours, with notes of bonfire toffee and bitter chocolate, powerful but elegant tannins and a long, gently spicy finish. This is no simple country wine - it is considerably complex and a brilliant example of just how good Languedoc Merlot can be. And great value for money, too.

An enticing nose of wild strawberries, red cherries, creamy vanilla, herbs, and an intriguing hint of citrus fruit. Warm, spiced fruit and herby flavours abound, with lovely acidity and gentle tannins. For such a lowly denomination, this is classy indeed - full of ripe, juicy fruit, yet beautifully "winey" and satisfying, with those gently spicy flavours lingering long on the palate. Coming from vineyards which fall just outside of the Côtes du Rhône appellation, this really is a Côtes du Rhône in all but name, and is a cracking weekday wine. It would age nicely for a year or two, but why bother when it is so delicious now? Southern France in a glass!

Dark purple/cherry colour, semi-opaque. This is a big, brooding, yet complex wine, with aromas of cassis and bramble, spiced apple pie, damson and fig. Subtle hints of orange, violet, leather and toasty oak add to the complexity. The palate is rich and dense, loaded with black fruit flavours and ripe, grippy tannins and a touch of softening oak influence. A hint of dark chocolate and spice accompanies the sweet-sour fruit into a long finish. Rich and quite serious, yet with a balance and freshness that suggests a very ageworthy wine.
