Born in Bordeaux and educated in the U.S, Sacha Lichine began working at his family’s property, Chateau Prieuré Lichine, during the summers of his youth. This range is product of his recognition of a need for diverse and innovative wines, whilst offering affordable, approachablity to wines from the South of France. Not only does the team behind this wine range include Sacha but also Patrick Leon as consulting Oenecologist, whose experience is unparalleled in making the great wines of the world. Together they have been making big waves in the market with their bright and attractive collection and in this 'introductory' case we offer the opportunity to sample all 3 varietals....

Case includes the following:

1 x Sacha Lichine Le Poussin Rosé 2017 (France)

In Sacha's trademark rose style -originally developed under his Whispering Angels brand- this Grenache & Cinsault blend is pale pink in the glass, boasting beautiful floral scents. Whilst the palate displays lots of fruits, soft tannins. The Le Poussin Rosé is fresh, bold, alive and smooth.

Selcted parcels from the Hérault region, located in the South of France (between Pezenas and Béziers), were sourced for this wine. Combining the best of French winemaking 'know-how' with modern winemaking technology, low temperature pre-fermentation and gentle extraction were employed in the winery. 

Food Pairing: Simply as an aperitif or let yourself be carried away by Edith Piaf and pair alongside a fresh tuna steak served with black olives for a truly French experience & La vie en rose!

Seal: Screw Cap - Alc: 12%

1 x Sacha Lichine Le Coq Rouge 2015 (France)

Bright ruby in the glass with vibrant aromas of berry fruits and cherries with a subtle undertone of herbacious pepper and spice. Notes of red fruits, strawberries and cherries continue on the palate. Round, crunchy, good length and great freshness and a touch of vanilla.

Syrah and Grenache parcels were sourced from the Hérault region, South of France, between Pezenas ans Béziers for this delicious blend. Of this blend Sacha Lichine says: "Like my father I believe that wine should be enjoyed, not idolised & have created this blend with pure hedonistic enjoyment in mind!"

Food Pairing: Ideal with your favourite French winter fare and a generous helping of vintage Rolling Stones, 'I am the little red rooster too lazy to crow for days!'

Seal: Screw Cap - Alc: 12.5%

1 x Sacha Lichine Sauvignon Blanc 2015 (France)

This wine combines the best of French winemaking know-how with modern winemaking technology. Skin-contact before pressing. Fruity nose of peach, grapefruit, bananas and mango. The palate is well balanced, upfront, peachy and full-flavoured. Soft, round texture. Chill out with jerk chicken or blackened tuna steak with a squeeze of classic Bob Marley, “Stir it up".

Seal: Screw cap - Alc: 12%
