Les Gamins, D&D Sommeliers, Cotes du Rhone Villages, France 2014
We are very excited to introduce you to Les Gamins, the first red wine blended by a crack team of our sommeliers.
Deep purple in colour, it has distinct, ripe black fruit and spice aromas on the nose. Rich raspberry, black cherry and raisin flavours dominate on the palate in what we feel is an elegant blend with delicate tannins.
Sadly, we can't take ALL the credit making this fine creation. We had just a little help from Christian Voeux, head winemaker of top Châteauneuf du Pape, producer, Château la Nerthe, for the blending at their estate near Avignon, Domaine de la Renjarde.
The name 'Les Gamins' can be translated as ‘the kids’ and reflects the massive excitement we all had for this project - like kids in a sweet shop. We hope you have even half as much fun drinking it, as we did blending it.
