And apparently the Syrah-Grenache-Mourvedre grapes grow well in these high altitude Cevennes vineyards. Some of these wines are presented at this year's fall supermarket sales at prices of 10-to-20 euros alongside a slug of Mediterranean red blends at much lower prices.
The appellation includes St. Saturnin and Montpeyroux.
When Leclerc did not have either the Corbières they had featured or a well-rated Coteaux de Languedoc (Roussanne-Marsanne-Viognier for paella or fideua) today, I bought a bottle of Terrasses du Larzac 2012 Château la Sauvageonne Cuvée Les Ruffes for 8.50€ ($11) instead.
Also picked up some long sought after Cabardès with Bordeaux and Mediterranean grapes. Ideal with lamb.
Will report back when I open them.
