  • Tasting Notes

    This Grenche Rouge is typically Southern French, medium bodied yet full-flavoured. Lots of red fruits on the nose, with flavours of plums, raspberries and a hint of violet, and smooth tannins that make this a wine to enjoy with food or by itself.

    About

    Sent into space in 1963 by the French space programme, Felicette was the first cat to journey into space and survive, She is now immortalised on this wine from the Pays d’Oc in the south of France that bears her name. Grenache is a grape variety indigenous to this region, and this is a lovely example.

    The label bears a picture of Felicette looking up at the moon along with Felix, the cat who was the original choice to make the journey, but at the time of departure was nowhere to be found, so Felicette was sent instead. We think this is why Felix has a more wistful look on his face!

    Ideal with...

    We tried this with pot -roasted chicken, and it went beautifully. Would also be great with pasta in a rich tomato sauce and also with cheese.
