Laithwaites Wine Domaine Le Bosquet Syrah 2008

The story of Domaine le Bosquet really begins in 110 BC, when the Romans made the most of its exceptional terroir to make wine. The current vineyard on its hallowed slopes is 30 years old, and produces distinctively pure fruit.Just to make sure he gets the juiciest and most concentrated grapes however, winemaker Richard Osborne insists on a 'green harvest' - pruning excess grapes before ripening to ensure that only the very best remain on the vines by the time of the vintage.This meticulous care and attention to detail shines through in the wine's deep colour, pronounced black fruit aromas and rich, spicy taste. This is southern French Syrah as it should be - perfect for grilled lamb chops or shish kebabs or a pork and prune casserole.

This has an agreeably spicy taste, but in other respects it does not stand out from the crowd. We drank ours with steak and spicy vegetables, and it was a little overwhelmed.
It is a good enough wine and I might buy it if it was on special offer.

Decent little wine.
This light bodied Syrah, has pleasant spicy black fruit aromas and tastes. Certainly a decent little wine, but has nothing that would make you seek it out again either. At the relative prices, the Casa del Rio Verde Shiraz 2009 from Chile, provides more taste and value.

A taste of southern France
I have read that Tony Laithwaite believes the most exciting wines are still to be found in France. After drinking the delicious Domaine de Bosquet, this would appear to be a case in point.
You may have driven south through France, experiencing the shifting landscapes. You may have stopped at a rustic cafe or bistro, and thought, if only we could bring this wine home - but would it taste as good?
Well don't worry, because Laithwaites have done it for you. Deep, dark red, herby, warming and spicy. Versatile too - delicious as a glass on its own, and a great partner to good old English bangers and mash.
It's an authentic taste of France, that is perfectly at home over here.
Sante. Or if you prefer, Cheers.
