Les Roulants Carignan Merlot is an appealing easy drinking fruity wine made by the very capable co-operative Les Vignobles Foncalieu who are like no other cooperative. Their technical teams include international talents who revel in a mosaic of huge terroirs. So it comes as no surprise to learn that Michel Bataille and the 1,200 wine growing estate owners made the choice to produce upmarket wines. In order to achieve excellence in terms of quality, they have invested in a number of cutting-edge facilities.
Plenty of brambly fruits with a spiced edge, fresh acidity and just a grip from the tannins.
Great with cottage pie, bone marrow on toast, roasted chestnuts, butternut squash or partridge stuffed with cabbage
