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.

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 from the Pays d'Oc or fruity New World style with little or no oak ageing. Full recipe

The Producer

An estate with 60ha covering three of the Roussillon’s key terroirs, Lauriga is known for producing red wines of classic character.

Whilst white and rosé wines are also made, it’s the Carignan and Grenache Noir that are stars here (with the help of some newcomers too, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Mourvédre and Merlot.

Now part of Domaines Paul Mas, this has led to massive improvement in the wines, thanks to investment in both vineyards and winery facilities.

We import two red wines from Lauriga which we’ve chosen for their Roussillon character and terrific value for money.

The Producer

A recent addition to the Domaines Paul Mas collection in 2013, this 100ha estate lies near Carcassonne. Vines are planted on an old saltwater marsh, so in winter they’re deliberately flooded to reduce the salt content of the soils.

It’s also an area where phylloxera can’t survive, meaning they can plant ungrafted vines in these special soils. These cover some 18 different grape varieties, certified by Terra Vitis for its sustainable practices.

Our buyer was struck by the brilliant Chardonnay, and so we decided to ship directly to bring it to you at the best possible price.

Fusion Prawn And Vegetable Curry

The fragrance and flavours of coconut, chilli and ginger hold their own and can only be complemented by a fruity white, such as the Domaine de la Ferrandière Chardonnay. Full recipe

The Producer

This maybe in the Languedoc, but the very special conditions of the Terrasses du Larzac region are key to the wines special style. North-west of Montpellier the land climbs towards the Larzac plateau. Here the difference between day and night time temperatures can vary as much as 20˚C.

That means grapes take their time reaching optimal ripeness, and that time quite literally translates into better flavours.
It became part of Domaines Paul Mas in 2010 and has since expanded to 42ha of vineyards. We were struck by the classic nature of the Cabernet Sauvignon, and have shipped directly from the producer to bring you this stunning wine.

Veal with Creamy Mushrooms and Cavalo Nero

Veal can pair well with both reds or structured whites - try a southern French red from Domaine des Crès Ricards or fresh Gewurztraminer with enough acidity to cut through the creamy sauce but not overshadow the delicate meat. Full recipe

The Producer

An estate of 68ha in the heart of the large Corbières region, with vineyards planted on stony soil. The grape varieties planted focus on the red, unsurprisingly given 95% of the region’s wines are red.

Recently a member of Domaines Paul Mas, that ownership has seen plenty of new investment, with the cellar completely overhauled in 2014. Now gravity moves the juice and wine around, not pumps, and focused winemaking producers red wines that really show what Corbières can produce.

Even the barrels are a bit different here, using 50hl conical barrels rather than the traditional style you’d recognise.

We’ve shipped direct to keep the price down, and think you’ll love this classic French regional producer’s wine.

Beef Wellington with Spinach and Bacon

A traditional Beef Wellington is a labour of love, but one that more than delivers on taste. The tender beef fillet will pair nicely with medium to full-bodied juicy red styles from the likes of Corbières. Full recipe

Chilean Fish Stew

Pair rich fish stews with vibrant, zesty whites such as Sauvignon Blanc which have enough fruit flavour to balance out the punchy garlic, herbs and tomatoes. Or, Try something different and go for a Viognier. It will definitely stand up to the challenge. Full recipe

Chicken and Lentil Salad

Earthy lentil salads or stews match well with similarly savoury, earthy styles of wine. Although we're talking salad, don’t be afraid to try a medium-bodied red such as Pinot Noir or Merlot from Pays d'Oc. If you'd rather stick to whites, Chardonnay tends to cover the required flavour bases. Full recipe

Blue Cheese Burgers with Sweet Potato Wedges

Burgers and red wine are a match made in heaven but don’t forget the blue cheese element which could scuper your wine choice. To contrast the creamy, salty notes of the cheese, head to full, fruity reds with good acidity. The Saint-Cyr Carignan is a mighty match. Full recipe

so smooth

I enjoyed my first case from Rude. The case was damaged in transit, but was replaced immediately. My favourite wine is :

Rude Reserve Rouge 2016, Languedoc

Lovely and smooth to drink.

Definitely a favorite

We have tried this wine a few times now as part of mixed cases, and it's become our go-to favourite. It has never disappointed, with food or on its own. Smooth, with just the right amount of fruitiness - neither overpowering nor too delicate - and every sip transports us from dreary weather to memories of summer and warm, delicious locations. We love it!!
