2017 Château Gairoird Organic Rosé, AOC Côtes de Provence

“Rosé doesn’t get much better than this.” Jonny Wren, Songbird Wines Founder

We Brits can sometimes be guilty of not taking rosé seriously enough. Happy enough to splash out on a fine red or white, but the rose just needs to be cold and pale. This organic pink from Château Gairoird is the kind of wine that puts paid to that philosophy – once you try this there’s no going back as it’s totally delicious! It’s produced on a 45 hectare Domaine just outside the village of Cuers in the Côtes de Provence AOC. Here Oliver Pierrefeu (who happens to be the Count of Pierrefeu) grows the classic Provence varieties such as Cinsault, Grenache, Rolle & Syrah which all make it to the final blend. Harvested at night (to ensure maximum freshness) the juice is then cool fermented for 2-3 weeks then stays on it lees until January for added complexity. The result is a wonderfully complex and totally refreshing bottle of organic rosé that will bring joy to many a weekend relaxing in the dappled sunlight.

2017 Château Gairoird Organic Rosé @ £72 per case (6 bottles)

“It has the most wonderful pale pink/salmon colour that Provence is the master of. The nose is delicate and complex with aromas of peach, red berry and hints of spicy tangerine. Clean and full on the palate with layers of ripe fruit and a gentle but lengthy exotic finish. Rosé doesn’t get much better than this.” Jonny Wren

2021 Quatro Ventos – Portugal’s Top Value Red

Few Countries offer better value around the £10 a bottle mark than Portugal and, in my opinion, one of the very best at this price point is Quatro Ventos from the Douro valley. I remember this wine blowing me away at a Wines of Portugal tasting back in 2019 and then one week later my […]
