Languedoc-Roussillon, France
Domaine de Petit Roubie- 2014

Relatively rare, the Tannat grape which is of Basque origin, pops up in various vinous locations, but most famously in French 'Madiran', and more unusually, but successfully in Uruguay. It is famous for producing wines with very high levels of antioxidants. At Petit Roubie it produces quite a powerful, dark wine with plenty of tannic structure, yet with enough ripe fruit to balance the palate. Great value and a good partner for more hearty dishes.

88 Points, The Wine Gang, 'This organic Tannat wine (Tannat, the grape of Madiran and famous for producing wines with high levels of antioxidants) has a vibrant colour and cherry-fresh, almost Gamay-like nose with schist and cherry dryness. On the palate it is terribly pretty, the light tannins and fresh acidity along with that crisp cherry fruit and some herb nuances being charming and easy to drink.' May 2015 (2013 vintage)
