Saint-Laurand Collection Privée Rouge: A Light & Fruity French Delight (Review & Food Pairing)

Looking for a light, easy-drinking red wine that bursts with juicy fruit flavours? Then look no further than the Saint-Laurand Collection Privée Rouge, available now at The General Wine Company. This delightful French number is perfect for casual evenings, summer barbecues, or simply enjoying a glass on its own.

In the Glass:

The Saint-Laurand Collection Privée Rouge pours a beautiful garnet red with ruby highlights. On the nose, you'll be greeted by a vibrant bouquet of red fruits like raspberries, cherries, and plums, along with hints of spice and floral notes. The first sip reveals a light-bodied wine with a refreshing acidity that cuts through the juicy fruit flavours. The tannins are soft and smooth, making for a very approachable drinking experience.

Tasting Notes:

  • Aroma: Red fruits (raspberry, cherry, plum), spice, floral
  • Palate: Light-bodied, dry, refreshing acidity, red fruit flavours, soft tannins
  • Finish: Crisp and clean

Food Pairing:

The Saint-Laurand Collection Privée Rouge's versatility makes it a fantastic food pairing wine. Here are some delicious options to consider:

  • Charcuterie & Cheese: This wine is a natural companion to a charcuterie board laden with cured meats and hard cheeses. The fruitiness complements the salty flavours of the meats, while the acidity cuts through the richness of the cheese. Try pairing it with prosciutto, salami, manchego, or gruyere.
  • Pizzas & Pastas: Take your pizza night to the next level with a glass of Saint-Laurand. The wine's acidity pairs well with tomato-based sauces, while the fruit flavours complement the savoury toppings. It's also a great match for lighter pasta dishes like pasta primavera or pesto pasta.
  • Grilled Foods: Fire up the barbecue and uncork a bottle of Saint-Laurand. The wine's light body won't overpower the smoky flavours of grilled meats like chicken, burgers, or sausages. The fruitiness also pairs well with grilled vegetables like peppers and zucchini.
  • Salads: Salads don't have to be relegated to white wine territory. The Saint-Laurand's acidity makes it a refreshing choice for salads with grilled chicken, steak, or goat cheese.
  • Vegetarian Options: Don't forget about vegetarian dishes! The wine's fruitiness complements lentil stews, mushroom dishes, and roasted vegetables.

Beyond the Bottle:

The Saint-Laurand Collection Privée Rouge is produced in the southern Rhône Valley of France, a region known for its warm climate and production of Grenache and Carignan grapes. This particular wine is a blend of these two varietals, with Grenache typically contributing the red fruit character and Carignan adding a touch of spice. The "VdF" designation on the label stands for "Vin de France," which indicates a wine made in France but not subject to the stricter regulations of specific appellations.
