FINEST MIN­ER­VOIS LA LIVINIERE, 2016

Scottish Field - - FOOD & DRINK -

Tesco £9.50

A richer red, full of black­berry and blue­berry, ready to match meatier dishes. This is a real warm­ing wine for the win­ter months and the ideal ex­am­ple of that old adage, ‘what grows to­gether goes to­gether’. Vine­yard man­agers in the South of France may bat­tle against wild boar but, when it comes to cook­ing the beasts, their wines can form a per­fect pair­ing, with the high per­cent­age of syrah in this Min­er­vois pro­vid­ing plenty of dark fruit to match the posh piggy in the pie. There’s a hit of tan­nin that quickly set­tles down into the back­ground, adding to its food-friendly cre­den­tials.
