April's Wine of the Month is one our favourite's; the majestic Magneric from Domaine Sainte Croix.  

We have been working alongside Jon and Liz Bowen for some time and we cannot get enough of their terroir driven wines. Jon originally nurtured his viticulture skills at Plumpton College (East Sussex) but now tends his parcels of vines amongst the white rocks of the High Corbieres in Southern France. 

Magneric tastes of deep red and black fruits including blackberries, wild raspberries and figs. It is a natural wine with dense but ripe tannins. The mixture of 60% Grenache and 40% Carignan adds spice and acidity to the full bodied taste.16 months in French oak barrels provides additional complexity and helps give this wine aging potential. It is particularly good with a spicy lamb tagine.

As part of our Wine of the Month deal you will receive 20% off if you buy this wine now! Was £14.00. Now £11.20.

Wine of the Month 

It's the 1st of March and it's chilly out there! We recommend hunkering down with this month's featured wine; Vin d'Une Nuit (wine to be drunk in one night!) from Saint Saturnin and dream of warm sunny days.

Saint Saturnin is a small Languedoc appellation set deep in the South of France, near Montpellier. We recommend a glass of this wine, bursting with ripe red fruits and silky tannnis, with roast lamb. A delicious winter warming combo! 

As part of our Wine of the Month deal you will receive 20% off if you buy this wine now! Was £10.99. Now £8.79.

Buy online via our shop: http://www.thefinewineimporters.co.uk or come and have a glass at Café du Jardin in Lewes, East Sussex and buy a bottle to take home!
