We love French wine, especially those crafted in the Rhône valley. The Rhône is known as "La Capitale des Amoureux" - "The Capital of Lovers"; so it's no wonder that we lust after their wines. And whoever receives this beautiful gift set, two French wines presented in a wooden case, will be enamoured with you.

La Ruchette Dorée Côtes du Rhône Blanc has been made by Julien Dugas, a true southern Rhône winemaker. Local botanicals have been illustrated on the front label and reflect the ‘garrigue’ of the Southern Rhône vineyards – rosemary, lavender, olives – a defining scent evocative of the area.
The white wines of the southern Rhône are heavily influenced by the warm Mediterranean climate. The long sun-drenched days typically make white wines that are relatively full-bodied and sumptuous.
The nose is pretty and delicate, just hints of hedgerow flowers. The flavours are nuanced and refined rather than overt. Careful use of oak adds texture and vinosity to this very drinkable white.
The vineyards used for Mas d’Alcyon have all been following organic processes since 2001.
The is a typical Côtes du Rhône, full-bodied and textural with smooth, ripe tannins.
The nose has liquorice and red and black fruit, which carry through to the palate with a salty, mineral edge. Structured yet approachable, the finish is long with hints of coffee and spice.
