Product Description

Packed with rich, juicy ripe berry fruit flavours, a touch of soft tannin and a subtle twist of spice.

Try it with a hearty meat dish, cheeses or simply lap it up all on its lonesome... Purrrfect!

Our 'cunning little cat' ('Le Petit Chat Malin' in its native French) is a tasty wine made from specially selected grapes harvested in the vineyards of sunny southern France.

Alc. 13.5% Vol.
The Oc, or 'Pays d'Oc' as you'll see it on most labels, refers to the Languedoc-Roussillon region of southern France, known by the French as 'Le Midi'. Geographically the Oc covers an incredibly broad swathe of vineyards from the Rhône delta in the middle of southern France, arcing all the way round to the Spanish border on her Mediterranean seaboard.
Planted here are both traditional grape varieties such as Grenache Gris (which makes very fine rosé) and Grenache Noir (try Pasquiers for a full-bodied flavoursome find); as well as the 'cépages améliorateurs' (varieties introduced in the last twenty to thirty years) such as Syrah and Merlot for reds, Viognier and Sauvignon Blanc for whites. Eric Monnin, Boutinot's winemaker responsible for the Languedoc, is constantly on the look-out for producers who have hidden gems, visiting domaines, seeking out new parcels as well as counselling winemakers before the harvest on e.g. softening harsh tannins in reds, or retaining acidity and expressing aromatics in whites. Then once the grapes have been picked, vinified and the wines barely finished, he tastes these 'brut de cuve' wines intensively and repeatedly over the next six months in collaboration with Samantha Bailey and Kim Tidy to select and blend the styles we seek and decide on their maturation, optimum bottling month and release date to the market.

should be better

I bought this because of the pun and the grapes.It lacks bite, it is bland and boring it could do with something to lift it, perhaps some Mourvedre could add a needed kick. Great pun, remember 'Goats do Roam'.

Very ordinary Languedoc red with a snazzy label

Languedoc offers some good bargains, but this isn't one of them. It's a decidedly average, soft and fruity red. That might be ok for five pounds, but it's not worth six. Clearly the extra pound has gone on marketing - it's a very modern, chic looking bottle, with light-hearted labelling, although I don't think the placing of the cat strictly matches the French.

Soft fruity snd delicious

Beautiful soft red wine that compliments any meat dish. Screw top which could possibly help if you keep some, but you will probably drink it all!!

Disappointing

Agree with the reviewer who found this sour. I'm a big fan of their rose though, get that instead.

you get what you pay for

I bought this as 2 for 10. It was reasonable value for money in that it cost only 5, but if Id paid 6 I would have been disappointed. In the end I used most of it in a venison casserole and drank the rest while I was cooking - its just right for that!

Martin Wishart's Squid with Red Wine and Tomato

Extra flavour is teased out of squid by slowly braising in a thick, velvety red wine and tomato sauce. Temperature control is important in this recipe, since overcooking the squid will compromise its delicate flavour.
