Elixir rouge from Bruno Andreu is a classic Languedoc blend of Syrah and Grenache. It is a big, soft, rounded wine with amazing length and is jam packed with warm attractive flavours of black fruit, damson, liquorice, chocolate, and ginger. This is Bruno’s most awarded wine, a better alternative to Cotes du Rhone and super value.

The Languedoc region in the south of France has had to work hard to rebrand itself over the past twenty years. The speed at which New World countries have created brands out of grape varieties and bigger companies have dominated shelf space caught European winemakers out. Languedoc wine looked very old fashioned, very quickly. Luckily, we know Bruno Andreu, and Bruno understands how to make delicious wines that blend tradition with modernity. Bruno comes from a family of wine makers and knows how things were, but rather than stick to what doesn’t work anymore, Bruno set about creating clean, modern, forward-thinking wines that still retain a little French, rustic charm. They are a great advert for modern Languedoc wines with a sense of artisan production, care and terroir that is refreshing for such humble wines. It is always fun to taste the new vintages with Bruno, who constantly amazes us with the quality of the Tendem and Elixir wines and surprises us each year with beautiful one-offs from grape varieties like Petit Verdot and Petite Syrah.
