Doesn't get juicier than this. A full-bodied, spicy Grenache and Syrah red wine blend from the Vacqueyras in the Rhone, aged in oak casks. Smooth and satisfying with ripe plum, blueberry and red berry, anise and pepper spice flavours on the palate. Not to be missed.

Food pairings: pepper steak, roast beef, sausage cassoulet.

Famille Perrin's Les Christins 2016 Grenache and Syrah red wine blend is a spicy, smoky, full-bodied red wine from the Vacqueyras, Rhône wine region. Perfumed with red florals with ripe dark berries, cherry, dried herbs, anise and pepper spice flavours on the palate. Rich and yummy. Enjoy now and for the next five years. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
