THE STORY FROM CHIX:
This wine comes from the first vineyard I imported from, so it is very special to me. This is a very versatile wine, which will suit many occasions. When I am travelling somewhere, I always have a bottle of this in my luggage (it doesn’t need decanting so it is perfect on arrival!). You can enjoy this wine on its own or with red meat or cheese.
Syrah and Granache are commonly found in the Rhone Valley. Mas d’Intras is in Valvigneres which was originally known as Vallis Vinnaria meaning the valley of the vines. It is a family owned vineyard in the Ardeche, situated just North of the Rhone Valley, and produces equally stunning wines. South East France and the land has been in the family for over 4 centuries. Alphonse Robert had been working on the family land since 1943 and after many years of working with the local Cave Co operative, Alphonse and his wife Francoise started their own estate, Mas d’Intras in 1982.
