About This Flight

Throughout the year, Lowes Foods’ globe-trotting wine purveyors are bringing their favorite labels back to the Carolinas. Each of these flights of wine are only available for a limited time and while bottles last.

This quarter we are featuring four labels from the Languedoc-Roussillon region in southern France.

COCHON VOLANT RED 2018

This deep red wine has glints of violet on the edges of the glass and offers fruity aromas with a hint of cherry. Notes of crushed raspberry and Burlat cherry provide a complex taste while the tannins give this balanced wine a great structure.

Pairings:

Pairs especially well with duck breast, roast pork, roast beef, and lamb chops.

Pairings:

Pairs well with cooked meat, charcuterie and cheeses such as comet, brie, and Roquefort.
