As the evenings draw in, southern Rhône reds are the perfect choice for everyday drinking, offering a combination of value and fuller-bodied warmth. This charming Lirac red was aged mainly in concrete tank, with a portion in the large 600-litre oak barrels commonly found in the Rhône Valley. It's warm and spicy, and chewy and rustic, with firm red and black berry fruit. Perfect to accompany meat-based dishes on a chilly evening. Look out for the same producer's full-bodied Tavel Rosé in Tesco too – another great buy
