About This Wine...
“Keep an eye out for the wines of Saint Chinian; this region, deep in the Languedoc, produces some great value wines. Those from the steep schist terraces have an intense aroma, a characteristic firm concentration and structure. The looser limestone soils tend to make for bigger, softer and rounder wines. Both are usually made from a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre, sometimes with a little Carignan. The Jougla Cuvée, from schist soils, has a lovely taut elegance, fine tannins balanced by delicious ripe cherry fruits, which make it quite special. Try it with roast game or red meats.”
