When looking for best value French red wines, you'll find the Rhône Valley fertile hunting ground. Sure, there are the big names there, but look to regions like Ventoux for top wines at very good prices. Here's a knockout value Grenache-based red wine, full of red berry character to prove the point.

Named after the stone walls which protect the vineyards from the powerful Mistral wine, Les Traverse has some Syrah for added structure, plus a hint of spice. You'll find it perfect with anything from barbecues to roast beef, sausages to hard cheeses.

A very soft red with medium body and a great finish. George

The Producer

A historical Rhône estate since 1834 when Antoine Jaboulet began buying and farming the land around the town of Tain l’Hermitage, Paul Jaboulet Aîné has grown into one of the best known and most admired names in the Rhône Valley, synonymous with a broad range of top quality Rhône Cru and benchmark generic appellations. Six generations of the Jaboulet family carried on this family tradition, purchasing some of what would become the most prized vineyard locations in the region. Following nearly two centuries of family ownership, Maison Paul Jaboulet was bought in 2006 by the Frey family, owners of Château La Lagune in Bordeaux.

The Winemaker

Eldest daughter Caroline Frey heads up the winemaking team and it is her Bordeaux experience and meticulous attention to detail, combined with huge investment in both vineyard and winery, which has put Jaboulet firmly back on the world wine stage. Caroline spends the majority of her time in the Rhône, with frequent trips back to Bordeaux and this prompted the desire to unite the two estates into one wine by blending their grape varieties as an ‘evidence’ of her divided loyalty – the result is the Evidence par Caroline. 2010 saw a brand new state-of-the-art gravity fed winery in action where the top quality grapes are treated as though they were on a spa-day, gently pummelled and pampered until they give up their wonderful nectar for the next stage of the process.

The Region

Jaboulet's jewel has to be the magnificent vineyards of the Hermitage hill but they now own vineyard locations the length and breadth of the Rhône valley. More recent acquisitions in the Southern Rhone valley, including Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Côtes du Rhône, have earned Jaboulet another raft of great reviews.

Baked Stuffed Aubergine With Walnut And Roquefort

With a lot of strong, rich flavours in this baked dish, you need to match the salty cheese with acidic tomato, savoury aubergine and nuts. Try a medium bodied red with enough fruit flavour to contrast with the saltiness in the cheese, the Ventoux Les Traverses Rouge will definitely do the job.

Skirt Steak with Chimichurri Sauce

This robust, flavoursome cut is nicely balanced by the punchy, herby sauce. Skirt needs a relatively well-structured red to soften the meat flavours, so plump for rich, oaky wines but remember not to go too full-bodied or risk drowning out the green sauce. Southern Rhône reds will be a beautiful match.

Feijoada

A robust Portuguese pork stew that's not for the faint-hearted, this needs a ripe, juicy red wine to stand up to the porky flavours. Try spicy Shiraz, a juicy Grenache such as a Ventoux or stay local with a Portuguese red.
