VARIETAL CONVERSATIONS

Le Grenache

Grenache is one of the 58 grape varieties that make IGP Pays d’Oc so varied and exciting. The official quality endorsement is featured on the bottles.

The aromas I conjure up

Admittedly I come from the shores of the Mediterranean, but Pays d’Oc is definitely where I thrive! The weather is perfect for me and the range of soil types allows me to fully express my broad-ranging array of aromas from strawberry and blackcurrant to white flowers and spices.

My favourite occasions

I like it when it’s hot and the sun is my best friend. Over a barbecue or a meal shared with friends, my freshness and exuberance are sure to make an impression.

The dishes I prefer

I’m reputed to be the grape variety favoured by those who like the good things in life! So it goes without saying that I pair with many different styles of food but my character and spice notes make me a particularly good partner for grilled white meats and fish.

My little secret…

As I said before, I love the sunshine, which is why I only grow around the Mediterranean. As soon as I move away from its shores, I struggle to ripen properly. You have to admit, I made the right choice!

My favourite dish

Marinated king prawns cooked on a hot plate

Place the prawns in a flat container.

For the marinade: 2 crushed cloves of garlic, a small bellpepper cut into strips, the juice of two lemons, olive oil, salt and Espelette pepper.

Cook for 2 to 3 minutes on either side, turn them over when they are pink, adding a little juice from the marinade, then enjoy with a delicious Grenache IGP Pays d’Oc.
