2018 Chemin de la Pinède

IN STOCK
Grapes Merlot
Colour Red
Origin France, Languedoc-Roussillon

From a collective of farmers who are all working with the same ambition to create fresh and healthy fruit to make incredible value wines in this well positioned sector in the South of France. Quite a delight with well-balanced ripe fruit and a gentle drier edge. An easy, perfectly balanced wine for a casual supper but this smoothie is equally at delicious on its own. L&S (Sep 2019)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Merlot? Yes a merlot but there is not one hint of jam or chocolate, no slipperiness or listlessness about this one – instead it’s a beautifully structured red that smells of redcurrant leaves and has a freshness to it. Delicious.Victoria Moore, The Daily Telegraph(Mar 2020)

This is a Pay D’Oc merlot from vines flourishing on clay and limestone soils in the south of France near the Roman city of Nîmes. Smooth, characterful and immensely pleasing on the tongue, it’s a robust and fruit forward wine with medium tannins that doesn’t disappoint and at under a tenner it’s a bargain buy. Pair it with chicken, Italian dishes or even a pizza.John Clarke(Jan 2020)

Chemin de la Pinède

Chemin de la Pinede is made by the over-achieving Vignerons du Sommières, a collective of small farmers in the heart of the Pays d'Oc. The quality of fruit is at the heart of what they do and working along the principles of 'Lutte Raisonée' every effort is made by the farmers to ensure healthy fruit and healthy vineyards. Some of the plots are now being worked organically, and it should not be long before these wines are certified Organic. As Co-operatives go, we have found nothing to match this brilliant producer and the Merlot is the star of the show when it comes to value for money.
