Fend off the chill

I don’t know about you but we have experienced a fair smattering of snow today and the icy cold chill has given me a craving for something warming with a lick of spice. For dinner this evening we’re having a delicious spaghetti bolognese and to go with it, a glass of Domaine des Trinités Le Portail Faugères 2009 from the Languedoc region of France.


A blend of Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvèdre, this juicy red has blackcurrants and spicy red cherries in equal measure. Easy drinking and – at 14% – rather warming, this wine is just the thing to keep you toasty in front of the fire/ radiator on frosty evenings such as this one. Pick up a bottle for £9.99 from Cambridge Wine Merchants and batten down the hatches.
