Saint-Pourçain: ‘La Ficelle’ Rouge 2022


A self-proclaimed Vin de Soif, designed for early drinking

Thirty years ago the pioneering Cave Co-opérative at Saint-Pourçain had the fun idea of asking a different comic artist to illustrate their red wine bottle every vintage. The common theme throughout the series has been the ‘La Ficelle’ reference, which denotes the section of knotted string that was dipped into your bottle by a waiter to determine how much you should be charged for that evening’s consumption!

Made from a blend of Gamay and Pinot Noir, it is a self-proclaimed ‘Vin de Soif’ that is delicious when lightly-chilled and is a terrific summer red for picnics, barbecues and impromptu garden gatherings. A bright bouquet of cranberries and redcurrants with a touch of candy floss and coulis. On the palate it has oodles of juicy berry fruit, a touch of spice and light tannins.
