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.
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.
