Product Description

La Chasse Shiraz

The name La Châse is derived from the historic chest that contained the great reliquaries of the Popes who lived in Avignon during the 14th century.

La Châse Shiraz (also known Syrah) is sourced from the finest Languedoc vineyards in the South of France. Our winemakers carefully select the noble grapes to create this classic Shiraz.

This vibrant and full-flavoured red wine displays lively violet and red berry aromas and is in a smooth, fruity, medium-bodied style on the palate, with a long satisfying finish.

Vinification Details

Veronique Torcolacci and her team of winemakers at Gabriel Meffre are very hands-on in the vineyards. The grapes are de-stemmed and gently crushed. The resulting juice is fermented for between two and three weeks with daily pumping over of the skins to provide the intense, bright red colour that characterises the wine. Fermentation is temperature controlled at 25 degrees and - when finished - the wine is aged for 6 months in American and French oak.

Great taste, but 2 glasses the evening before left me with a vicious hangover the following morning. Will avoid in future!

Great regional red with plenty of depth

This is a great regional wine with lots of character and great value. Plenty of depth but not too much tannin a good fruity nose. Good with lamb dishes or cheese.

worth a glass or two

A very tasty red went down well with dinner and was also still good on its own even after a few days. Ordering another bottle right now.

Easy Drinking

Not sure why this only has two stars, I think it's pretty good, especially at the sale price. It certainly goes down easy with dinner (and while I am cooking it too!).

Great Taste - Accompanies most dishes. Very easy to drink no bitter taste. Silver Decanter Award well worth a try and worth the money. Excellent value.
