Three Wines From Sud De France Top 100

Three wines from Sud de France Top 100

Wines from southern France combine warmth and ripeness with balance and freshness - perfect for wintry months, then.

Henri de Richemer Sauvignon, 2016, IGP Côtes de Thau (£6 - £7.99, Bijou Bottles) warmer-climate substantial Sauvignon; aromatic with ripe orchard and peach fruit, freshness and minerality. Clean and fresh.

Match with mixed starters.

Paul Mas Vinus, Malbec 2016, IGP Pays d'Oc (£6 - £7.99, Morrison's) Malbec and Cab Franc blend; prune and elderberry fruit, spice and earthiness with raspberry-leafiness; fresh and supple with fine, persistent tannins.

Good and good value.

Match with darker game.

Les Hauts de Saint Martin 2016, Saint-Chinian 2016 (£6.99, The Co-op) GSM+C blend; dried garrigue herbs, woodsy-eartiness, mixed berry fruit and warming spices; fresh, supple and adept.

Good and good value.

Match with roasted red meats, hearty stews and chorizo.
