We have selected four of our favourite southern French wines, all of which we think offer tremendous value for money.

3 bottles – Picpoul de Pinet ‘Duc de Mornay’

Picpoul is one of southern France’s star whites: crisp, dry but full of citrus fruit flavours. This one was rated equal top in Decanter Magazine’s Picpoul tasting last summer and is made by the famous Cave de l’Ormarine on the Lac de Thau.

3 bottles – Pasquiers Sauvignon /Vermentino

This Sauvignon Blanc has extra zip and richness given to it by the addition of one of the main white grapes of the Languedoc, the Vermentino. Aromatic and zingy, this is perfect summer drinking.

3 bottles – Bellefontaine Malbec

Although Argentina is now thought of as the home of Malbec, it has been grown in France for many hundreds of years. This delicious example from the Languedoc is unoaked and has masses of bright, blueberry fruit flavours.

3 bottles -  Pasquiers Grenache Noir

Unoaked, this stunning red made from the Grenache Noir has red berry fruit in abundance. Soft and so very easy to drink, this is one of our most popular summer reds that can even be chilled and drunk with chicken and fish dishes.
