St-Chinian, Sainsburys Taste the Difference 2018

I’m currently comparing M&S ‘Classics’, Tesco ‘Finest’ and Sainsburys ‘Taste the Difference’ wines. This compared well.This family’s winery has produced wine in Bordeaux since 1791. A warming winter red.

Tasting notes: Its appearance is deep purple in colour. Red fruit notes on the nose. Medium body. Balanced acidity. Soft tannins. Short finish. Reasonably intense. Ripe red fruits on the palate with some herbal notes, so a little complexity.

Wine Colour – Red
Price – £9
Where do I get it from? Sainsburys
Current Vintage – 2018
Grape – Blend of mostly Syrah and about 20% Grenache,
Region/Country – Languedoc, France
Verdict – Good wine for the money

Food Pairings: This would work well with roast lamb & cheese boards.
