The Claude Val wines come to us from Domaine Paul Mas, located about as far south in the Languedoc as you can get and still be in France. And although you may technically be in France, the food, wine, and culture will all be Catalan. ‘Vendages’ is no exception - blending traditional Southern French grapes with their own local varities to create a unique, value oriented, every day drinking red. Warm punchy fruit open on the nose followed by plenty of ripe black fruit. The palate is medium bodied, smooth, and a little spicy, with just a touch of tannin on the finish.
Pairings: Keep it simple with some mild blue cheese and honey on a baguette
