Tasting Notes for the Evening's Wines
At this tasting event we showcased three delicious wines – a white, a rosé and a red – that are all great for the summer. Here’s a handy reminder of the wines we all enjoyed.

Château de Campuget 'Le Campuget'
From an historic château dating back to 1753 in the heart of the Costières de Nîmes in Languedoc comes this fabulous blend of Grenache Blanc and Viognier. It's a refreshingly crisp wine with inviting aromas of fresh peach, leading to a vibrant palate of grapefruit and pear and a delicate hint of spice on the finish. You can buy it here.
Olivier Coste 'Solis Lumen' Rosé
This blend of Grenache Noir and Cinsault is a pure expression of south coast French rosé, coming from a family-owned estate near Pézenas, where the Mediterranean asserts its influence on the vines. Pale blush pink, lively and crisp, with red berried fruit and citrus characters leading through to a refreshing finish. You can buy it here.
San Marzano 'Il Pumo' Salice Salentino
In 1962, 19 vine growers from San Marzano combined their efforts to establish what is now one of the largest and most prestigious winemaking cooperatives in Puglia. This stunning Salice Salentino, made from Negroamaro and Malvasia Nera grapes, has an intense bouquet of cherry, savoury plum and spicy notes combined with an attractive hint of Mediterranean herbs. It's full-bodied and warm, with a generous flavour and a pleasantly fresh finish. You can buy it here.
