Everyone loves Sauvignon Blanc, by far the biggest selling grape in Ireland. This is from rom the rolling countryside of Gascony in South West France, a wine which elegantly blends Sauvignon Blanc's naturally tangy, herbal character with a deliciously soft succulence from the region's sunny climate.. Gold Label Sauvignon Blanc - Price €8 Lively French Sauvignon Blanc, packed with a ripe cocktail of pear, grapefruit, lime and gooseberry flavours. Pays Gascogne whites are some of the best value and most underrated wines in France. Originally these vineyards would have been focused on Armagnac Brandy which is still produced and is more interesting than Cognac. Fleurie is by far the best known Cru Village of Beaujolais, a sub-region of Burgundy. Now that nobody can afford Burgundy anymore many of us have turned to Beaujolais. Gamay, the Beaujolais grape, may not be as complex as Burgundy's Pinot Noir but it has lively cherry fruit flavours and oodles of character, especially from the cru villages like Fleurie, Morgon and Moulin a Vent. Fleurie Now Priced - Price €12 A refreshing red wine with flavours of raspberries and violets. This medium-bodied wine from the village of Fleurie is one of Beaujolais’ most famous ‘cru’ wines. Serve chilled alongside duck, tuna and omelettes. Suitable for vegans. At its best within two years
