"De Chansac is a deep coloured wine with a lovely slightly spicy brambly fruit. It has flavours of bramble, wild plums and raspberry and a delicious fleshy smoothness. Modern winemaking techniques also play a key role. The grapes undergo a process called thermo-vinification which is used to extract maximum colour and flavour without the hard tannins that carignan is known for, hence the lovely smooth ripe mouth feel. The De Chansac is quite a flexible red wine, really at home with chargrilled meats and beef brisket but good also with duck, pork or turkey."
