We say…..A lovely great value easy drinking red! A real crowd pleaser making it the perfect choice for parties.

Collection is an excellent red wine produced by Chateau Le Thou in the AOC Coteaux du Languedoc. It has a lovely crimson colour, a light aroma and a well balanced flavour.  This red is a Grand Vin du Languedoc and is a very easy drinking wine that is a real crowd pleaser, making it perfect for sharing at parties etc.

Chateau le Thou has been owned by the Valéry family since 2008 and complements the other vineyards the family have owned at Sauvian since 1956.  The Valéry family have always taken a keen interest in environmental protection and seek wherever possible to reduce the carbon footprint of their wine production processes.  Laurent Valéry, the grandson of the original owner, is now the wine maker on the estate and he brings a fresh approach to developing the family’s interest whilst ensuring traditions are maintained. The Syrah and Grenache vines used for Collection are 30 years old, grow on chalky, clay soil with pebbles and a gentle, sustainable vine management program is adopted.

The grapes are mechanically harvested at night when it is cooler and de-stemming is undertaken.  The alcoholic fermentation process lasts for 15 days at temperatures of between 25 -28 degrees Celsius, with 3 pumping-overs per day.  Bleeding and soft pressing techniques are used to separate the different qualities of pressed wine, followed by malolactic fermentation.

Collection from Chateau Le Thou is an easy drinking red wine that represents great quality at excellent value.  It is perfect for drinking on its own or served with all red meats, cheeses and oriental cooking.  The 2016 vintage is ready for drinking now but will continue to be good for 4-6 years.  Our Magnum, which contains the equivalent of 2 standard sized bottles, is a fantastic crowd pleasing red wine which would make an excellent choice for a party.  As a gift for a friend, it certainly wouldn’t disappoint either!
