Vin de Pays Duche d’Uzes

Must be serendipity – yesterday finding out about the Truffle Festival at Uzes(30 Gard, Languedoc), and today hearing of the wines of the same town – the Vin de Pays Duche d’Uzes – what is more they are in the January Sale at Leon Stolarski Fine Wines (www.lsfinewines.co.uk). These wines come from an area which straddles the southern Rhône and the Languedoc (north of Nimes, west of Avignon) and features a blend of traditional Grenache and Syrah as well as a couple of Merlot and Cabernet-based reds. Don’t be put off by the lowly Vin de Pays appellation – Jancis Robinson has written of the wines from this area with high praise!
Leon Stolarski’s list has some other gems from the Languedoc, including Cotes de Brian (sounds like its from Monty Python but is actually from the western part of the Hérault département) which proffers an extraordinary blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Pinot Noir. Other gems come from Minervois Lavinière, Coteaux du Languedoc and Côtes de Roussillon.
– but you need to act soon to get hold of the bargains – and the sale finishes at midnight on 20 January 2006!!
