Château de Pennautier 'Terroirs d’Altitude' Cabardès 2009, France
From the mountainous appellation of Cabardès, that is in the western Languedoc and about half way between Bordeaux to the west and the Rhône Valley to the east, this blends Bordeaux's Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Merlot with the Rhône's Grenache and Syrah, all aged in oak to delicious effect. Smoky, tobacco and incense laden stuff with cedar and a great core of black fruit juiciness, it is creamily easy to drink and well balanced on the palate, the black fruit driving through into an elegant, Claret-like finish. Reduced to £8.99 until 29th April 2013, this is also a Comic Relief wine so buy it before the 18th of March and 10% of the price will go to charity. Watch the video for more information and food-matching suggestions. £8.99 down from £10.99, Majestic.
