Chaintres Saumur Champigny VV 2018
Triballe En Attendant Que...2017
Rottiers La Sambinerie 2017
Gresser Brandhof Pinot Noir 2016
St. Mitre Cuvée M Rouge 2014
Colombière Les Frontons Flingeurs 2018

As with our whites and rosé cases, these range from lighter to fuller bodied. To start, the crunchy Cabernet Franc that shows ripeness and no greenness (for which Cab Franc can be notorious) from Chaintres, with a clarity and purity from the exceptionally chalky soil in which the vines are grown. A leap from Loire, across to Alsace for the lighter bodied, strawberry-fruited yet minerally Pinot Noir from Gresser is redolent of a Bourgogne with its structure and purity. Dropping a little south to Beaujolais there is La Sambinerie – 100% Gamay from a site that sits alongside the vineyards of Moulin a Vent – having muscularity and depth more associated with the Cru sites than Village.

Heading back towards Bordeaux (but not as far) to Fronton, Les Flingeurs is a juicy, supple and earthy red made from Negrette (the main grape of the region), great at room temperature it is also delicious lightly chilled. Heading towards Provence, enjoy a bottle of the very last of Cuvée M Rouge (their rosé is in the Pink Set). Granted red wine and Provence tend not to be a ready association, for Virginie and Philippe Poiron, the demand for their rosé is such that they can no longer make their red. It is a wonderful blend of Grenache and the mostly Syrah; juicy top notes from the Grenache while the Syrah gives it structure and backbone. Elegant, moreish medium bodied red which will be a happy addition to any meal, especially a meaty one.

Finally and no pun intended, Triballe’s En attendant que… (it translates roughly as waiting for) is from the warmer Languedoc, organic, with some bottle age, this is a fuller bodied, gutsy dark fruited red. Smooth, plush and earthy with generosity from the grenache and meaty, earthy, tarry notes from the Syrah – this is reminiscent of a Rhone.
