Vin de Jardin - Galouchey

The name Vin de Jardin stems from 'vins de garage.' This movement and name emerged in the mid-1990s as a reaction to some of the bigger, higher alcohol, more tannic Bordeaux that was emerging. Vin de Jardin is a riposte to that name.

Galouchey's wine can't even be called a Bordeaux. It's nestled in the lesser-known Entre-Deux-Mers appellation, but because it includes a blend of unofficial grapes, it can't carry the name of Bordeaux on its label.

And what are those grapes? They use every permitted grape available – but for both red and white varieties. That means there's semillon, muscadelle, and both sauvignons blanc and gris included in the mix. This might on a trendier label be called a field blend.

The wine is imported by Keeling & Andrew, which is the importing team behind Noble Rot – where you'll see this on their menus for £60 per bottle.

This has aromas of cloves, blackcurrant, red plums, black pepper, violets, cedar, and earthiness on the nose. The tannins are present but approachable, and it makes this a perfect wine to drink now.
