Les Jamelles is a range of wines from Languedoc by winemakers Laurent and Catherine Delaunay. Orginally from Burgundy, they worked in California before settling in southern France, which gives some clues to their approach - New World fruit and ripeness with Old World elegance and sophistication.
This Viognier and Syrah are both Rhône varieties transplanted west; both are on offer from from 6 April until 26 April 2016 and both benefit significantly from aeration - don't be afraid to decant for several hours.
Les Jamelles Viognier 2015 (£6.99, reduced to £5.99) ripe orchard and stone fruits, citrus and floral aromas with sweet spice. Substantial yet fresh.
Match with starters such as pork terrine or makerel pâté.
Les Jamelles Syrah 2014 (£6.99, reduced to £5.99) lavender, violets and dark berry fruit with herbs, cinnamon and mint. Fresh and supple.
Match the herby aromas with rosemary roast chicken or rosemary roast lamb.
