Domaine St Andrieu Rouge 2012 Côtes de Provence

This is the perfect occasion to add a few bottles to your order and find out what a good red Côtes de Provence is. A nice medium-bodied wine with aromas of blackcurrant and plum, hints of toast and vanilla provided by the Syrah & Mourvèdre blend. Well-rounded on the palate with a long and spicy finish, giving a great balance to this bottle. If you like aromatic red wines which have a lot of personality, this one is a great pick - and with 5 years in the bottle, it is a brilliant wine to drink now.

Expert.pngWhat experts say  

Bronze Medal at Decanter World Wine Awards 2015 "Summer berries, a touch of spice and milk chocolate complement floral notes. Oak is integrated. Ageing gracefully. An exotic edge. Medium intensity."

  

Silver Medal at Concours Général Agricole Paris 2014

1* "With a profound colour, this 2011 shows an intense nose of ripe black fruit and liquorice with toasted notes. The palate is well balanced with subtle and integrated tanins, ending on a long and slightly spicy finish." (previous vintage)

Domaine Saint Andrieu also produces an amazing olive oil, and it would have been a shame not to offer it. Vierge Extra is the "creme de la creme" for olive oil, extracted following a cold pressing. An authentic and high-end olive oil.
