Border territory - Costieres de Nimes, a land abutting the Rhone Valley proper, the Languedoc expanses and the wild Camargue. Like those labelled Cotes du Rhone wines of the Nimes region are often quoted as a 'safe bet', drinkable, fruity, great with most red-blooded food and usually good value.

Wine Tasting Note Rhone Valley Vineyards VF Lasira, 2004, Costieres de Nimes, France.
Picked up from Threshers for £5.99.
A screwcapped bottle - 75% Syrah, 25% Grenache, 0% Cork as the rear label puts it. Medium to full bodied, fruity and drinkable. A lick of tannin, a spot of spicy, licorice fruit and balancing acidity. Fine. Smooth with a little cheddar. Would be better a quid less (excellent if you take advantage of the three for two offer; working out out at £3.99 a bottle) but not bad for a mid-weeker. Alcohol 13%.
Scribblings Rating - 84/100 or 88/100 at �3.99
