And it is easy to see why…These wines stack up against the very best. The white is crisp and clean with fresh notes on the nose and a palate that will leave you wanting more. The red offers that warm, fuzzy feeling. Not too robust but just enough to cut through any foods you might be eating.
If you are in a restaurant, bar or pub and you see these wines on the list, don’t dismiss them straight away. Give them a go. You may be surprised.
Cuvée Jean-Paul Sec – A deliciously aromatic, bright and zingy dry white!
The rolling hills between the scattered medieval towns and villages of Gascony are predominately white wine country. Designated Pays de Gascogne in 1982, it was to here that vignerons were drawn to source white wines from the locally grown Colombard and Ugni Blanc grapes. Vines are trained using the Guyot system and vigorous grape selection is used to capture the fresh aromatics and flavour of this Blanc de Blancs from the southwest province of Gascony.
A fresh nose of lime, basil, freshly cut green grass and guavas. The medium-bodied palate continues with more green fruits and flowers; figs and tobacco flowers.
Ideal as an aperitif or with fish and chips, simple vegetable or salad dishes.
Cuvée Jean-Paul Rouge – A no-frills red and a stalwart of our house wine offering
The southern Rhône valley is swathed in warm sunny vineyards and peppered with hilltop stone-hewn villages on its rocky outcrops. Outside of the delimited areas of the famous village appellations, the wine the local vignerons make and enjoy is Pays de Vaucluse. Traditional Rhône-based viticulture is used with part manual/part machine harvest. Classic fermentation of Grenache and Syrah in temperature controlled vats to achieve immediate fruit flavours.
A classic Southern Rhône red; friendly and warming leafy, autumnal aromas and an ample, baked fruit palate. A delicious, uncomplicated, soft, fruity and very drinkable red.
Drink with hearty food such as grilled meats and casseroles.
