Quantcast

Full Flavoured Organic Trio

August 28, 2008

It’s always worth checking out your local Co-operative store for some outstanding wine offers.

This week I’ve found three organic wines which are all a snip at half price until September 14.

The trio comes from the Pays d’Oc (Languedoc-Roussillon), the biggest vineyard region in the world, boasting a wide range of geographic features, from the sunny beaches on the Mediterranean sea to the plains of Beziers, to the banks of the Rhne to the Pyrenees mountains. As in Burgundy, the region offers an infinite of terroirs and microclimates, allowing very different wines to be produced.

Since 1991, Les Jamelles wines have been produced by Catherine and Laurent Delaunay, two young winemakers from Burgundy whose family has been producing wine for four generations. After working in California they both fell under the charm of the Languedoc- Roussillon and their passion shows in the fruits of their labours.

THE merlot grape brings some length as well as a natural elegance to this delicious rich red round wine packed with raspberry and blackcurrant aromas as well as spices and aromatic herb scents.

The wine shows a very good balance between roundness, fruit and acidity with fine, non-aggressive tannins and demonstrates the the best characteristics of its soil.

Serve it with meats and cheeses.

Available in convenience stores, market town stores and superstores.

LES JAMELLES NATURELLES ORGANIC ROS 2007

Co-op pounds4.49, normally pounds8.99

ANOTHER lovely fruity wine with aromas of cherry, blackcurrant and redcurrant as well as roses and lavendar.

A lovely pink colour, veering towards bright red, it comprises a blend of Carignan, Caladoc, Grenache Noir and Cinsault.

It is pleasant and fresh with an extremely well balanced and persistent palate. Serve well chilled as an aperitif, with salads, braised or grilled meats, stuffed peppers, pasta or cheese.

Available in convenience stores, market town stores and superstores.

LES JAMELLES NATURELLES ORGANIC BLANC 2007

Co-op pounds4.49, normally pounds8.99

JJJ

PALE yellow in colour, this wine has a very fruity nose of citrus, passion fruit and white flowers touches. It has a fruity mouth with a lot of freshness and very well-balanced roundness and acidity. It’s perfect as an aperitif, and great with fish and chips, seafood, exotic dishes or chicken in a creamy sauce.

Available in convenience stores, market town stores and superstores.
