Les Jamelles Syrah, Pays d'Oc, 2012 - The Co-op‏

A Languedoc Syrah from Les Jamelles
Languedoc is a great source of well-made, ripe and pleasing yet serious wines. Les Jamelles, available from The Co-op, is the entry-level range from the husband-and-wife team behind Abbots & Delaunay.

Deep purple in the glass, warming, spicy aromas of dark berries, garrigue and violets. More sweet, ripe, juicy dark fruits, some pepperiness and spice with a touch of cool mint. Supple texture and fine, perfectly-ripe tannins; some persistence on the finish. Match with red meats, especially roast leg of lamb with garlic and rosemary, salamis, roast chicken or game.

Very enjoyable and good value; £6.49 from the Co-op. Provided for review.
