Nothing beats the simplicity and charm of a glass of red wine during the holiday season. Here are our picks of red wine for any celebrations.
Les Raisins de La Colère, Vin de France
Located in the heart of the Bordeaux and Bordeaux Supérieur appellations.
This cuvée is produced in the spirit of "natural" wines. A wine with no added sulphur, no frills, made from organically grown grapes.
In summary, a 100% Merlot that breaks the codes of Bordeaux tradition to offer you an explosion of fruit!
Foradori, Terodelgo, Vigneti delle Dolimiti, Italy
The Foradori vineyards are located in the Campo Rotaliano, where several different terroirs can be distinguished.
This wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks and aged 15 months in both stainless steel and wood. Pure, intense aroma of red fruits and a supple, fresh crunchiness on the palate.
Domaine Python-Paillé, Grololo Rouge, Anjou
A famous glou-glou, this Grolleau made from biodynamically farmed vines, pairs well with almost everything. This is the essence of what the Italians call 'vino al vino': wine from wine.
A garnet red color, with intense aromas of red fruits on the nose and the mouth-feel of beautiful acidity and a little tannic.
Telmo Rodriguez, Pegaso "Barrancos de Pizarra", Cebreros, Spain
The Pizarra vineyards are usually found on metamorphic soils. The wines from here have a different expression, they are always complex, direct and profound.
100% Garnacha, a ripe profile of sweet cherry and cranberry with a touch of spice and pepper. A lush and full bodied mouthfeel with a lingering warmth.
Telmo Rodriguez, Bodega Lanzaga, Lanzaga, Rioja, Spain
Made from grapes at organic vineyards, Lanzaga represents many things: field blend, bush pruning, organic viticulture and always keeping a limited production of human size.
A rich and complex expression of Rioja, a serious and sophisticated wine that ages wonderfully.
