Welcome to your new favourite red - our Rude Reserve Rouge is soft, smooth and intensely fruity and guaranteed to become a wine rack essential. A full, fruity red sourced from the Domaine de Cassagnau near Limoux in the heart of the Languedoc region, this is a blend of Syrah, Grenache, Merlot and a splash of Cabernet Sauvignon chosen for us by expert blender Yvan Meyer. It's soft and ripe, with juicy, plum fruit balanced by smooth, seamless tannins. It's a bit of an all-rounder when it comes to food matching - try lamb, tomatoes or spicy sausages for starters.

'Rude Red ..is jovial, well-mannered and has a bit of a joie de vivre about it...'
James Viner, Kent and Sussex Chronicle

Just back from France Pays D'Oc area, to find your two reserves.This red truly excellent and value for money. Will order a case as our standard red. Well done the whole team. Jerry

The Producer

Family-owned Domaine de Cassagnau is situated in the heart of the Languedoc region, due south of Carcasonne. The success of the estate has very much relied on the women of the family, with Berthe Abet in charge of the domaine for six decades and through two world wars. A doctor by profession, Jacques inherited the estate from his mother, Berthe's daughter Jacqueline, and continues the family business with wife Collette.

Tom Cannavan Review

Don't just take our word for it; here's what wine writer Tom Cannavan has to say:

"From the Languedoc in the south of France, like its white partner in the Rude Wines range it is a clever blend, with local grapes Syrah and Grenache and the big two of Bordeaux, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The result is a very useful 'house red' equally at home with a lasagne or a steak, and aromatic with kirsch and blackberry before a nicely-fruited palate. This is a fruit-forward red, soft with creamy texture and enough tannin and acidity in the background to nicely match the sweet and ripe black fruits that show just a touch of spice into the finish."

The Region

The estate produces red, white and rose styles within the Limoux area in the foothills of the Pyrenees and the warm, sunny Mediterranean climate also benefits from the fresher Atlantic breezes that work their way inland. The choice of grapes varieties is a meeting of these dual elements, with Syrah and Grenache representing the Languedoc and Cabernet and Merlot on the Atlantic side.

Roasted Tomato & Garlic Pasta

Tomato based sauces match well with light or medium bodied reds with high acidity which square up to the acidity in the tomatoes and make both food and wine taste fruitier. Try a classic French red or fruity New World style with little or no oak ageing.

Lamb Sosaties

Sweet and spiced South African lamb kebabs with herby potatoes screams open fire and red wine, so give a Southern French red with lots of fresh fruit and spice a go.

Salami Pizza

The tomato sauce on the pizza needs a light-ish red, while the smoky, spiced meat needs a wine with lots of soft fruit.
