The Oddbins Take

When you’re choosing wine, the options can seem baffling. We have seen grown men weeping, rocking on the floor at their local corner shop for a beacon, something – anything – to guide them through the bewildering array of wines that the shop keep know nothing about. At Oddbins we try to make sure that never happens. One way we do this is to say ‘if you like X wine, you may like this one too’. So! If you like Loire Sauvignon Blanc, you are going to love La Girouette. It delivers the tang-tastic citrus fruit of Loire Sauvignons with a little more fruit vibrancy, from the fulsome Languedoc sun.

E.I. Wines is a range of classic French varietals from the sunny Pays d'Oc region, produced by the multi-award winning cooperative Foncalieu, pioneers of agronomic research and terroir expression. Les Vignobles Foncalieu is heir to the original building of the ‘Vignerons Libres de Maraussan’, the first cooperative winery in France, founded in 1901. It was opened by the great statesman Jean Jaurès, who held a stake in the business himself. This original building remains a symbol of the cooperative winemaking movement to this day and its façade prominently displays their founding motto ‘all for one and one for all’ (we’re not sure if they’re aware that someone got there before them on that one).
