Description

Great find from Bergerac, not far from Bordeaux.

Named after the young partridges that are often spotted amongst the wildflowers in their vineyards. A hugely enjoyable red Vin de France from the southwest of the country that is similar in style to a good Bergerac (its near neighbour), but much more affordable. The excellent length of flavour belies its modest price tag.

Taste

Blakcurrant and cranberry

Aroma

Light black summer fruit

The vines of Château Grinou are centred around the small village of Monestier where vines have been planted since the Middle Ages (1053). With efforts from Gabriel and Julien, the new generation at Grinou, they hope this historical area will have a long and fruitful future too. The sons have already helped turn the whole estate to organic production back in 2009, and are now adopting a new strategy in the vineyards and cellar.

  1. A perfect light Bordeaux: lovely berry notes, not too dry, very quaffable, great with lamb.
