Les Jamelles - The Co-op

Two classy, inexpensive Les Jamelles wines from the Co-op

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.

Good value.

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.

Good value.

Match the herby aromas with rosemary roast chicken or rosemary roast lamb.
