Alain's Amandiers Inspiration

Alan Grignon loves his Languedoc and he deliberately crafts his wines to be full of Southern French flavour, but he can often be found casting a glance to his neighbouring regions and sometimes he finds inspiration for a new wine.

Cuvée des Amandiers Rouge 2009 IGP Pays d'Oc is the result of just such a glance to the north-east.  Available from Majestic at RRP £4.99, this is a traditional Languedoc blend of Carignan and Grenache but Alain has added a dash of Syrah for a Rhône-esque hint of spice and pepper.
