Les Jamelles, Réserve Mourvèdre 2013, France

I had this same wine as my 'Wine of the Week' over three years ago, though of course that was an earlier vintage, which had just scooped a top trophy at one of the major UK wine competitions. This 2013 also won 'silver' in a competition this year, but my main reason for choosing it is a) that it is a lovely little wine, and b) that it's currently on offer with a handy £1 off. Made in the Languedoc from one of the local grape varieties, Mourvèdre, it is an unoaked wine that overflows with cherry and buoyant raspberry fruit. On the palate that creamy, fleshy fruit fills the mouth, developing a touch of chocolate and spice, but all the time crunchy and fresh with an easy, but balanced and savoury dry finish. Watch the video for my full review and for specific food matching suggestions.

£6.49 on offer until 24th November 2015, The Co-operative.
