This still looks like chewing gum for the eyes but essentially Gold, Purple & Red are good, Blue is swallowable, Green and Black – spit.

Domaine Alary Cairanne Côtes du Rhône Villages 2011

Domaine Alary Cairanne Côtes du Rhône Villages 2011

Domaine Alary Cairanne F (Small) Domaine Alary Cairanne R (Small)

This is a big earthy wine from the village of Cairanne and the house of Denis Alary, whom Parker labels a Star of the area.

A blend of Grenache, Syrah & Carignan, it was every bit as good as a more ‘upmarket’ Hermitage.

Massive fruit, thick dark purple colour, smooth taste.

We served this to the Collets at Dinner, and Sean and I both enjoyed it.
