Château Viranel Rendez-Vous
Chateau Viranel Rendez-Vous shows attractive, sappy aromas of ripe red fruits. On the palate, Rendez-Vous is light-bodied, with snappy acidity, soft tannins and an elegant herbaceous note - not dissimilar to a Loire red such as Chinon. A lovely wine and very refreshing.

Why we like this wine
All too often red wines can be overblown and lack finesse and freshness but this delicious wine from the Bergasse brothers down in St Chinian certainly fits the bill. Cabernet Sauvignon can often lack ripeness too but the great weather in that part of the Languedoc almost ensures ripeness of fruit every vintage. It's a great blend with equal portions of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc contributing to this fresh and vibrant red.
