Made for Easter Sunday lunch

Joint of roast beef in front of an open fire

First published 27th March 2018

When it comes to Easter Sunday, many of us love nothing better than to join the family for a meal, and for many of us that revolves around the traditional Sunday Roast, and a firm favourite is beef.  Who cannot be tempted by succulent roast beef served with Yorkshire pudding, loads of roast potatoes and a selection of seasonal veggies? Our own Matt might take exception as he is a vegetarian so his alternative would probably be a nut roast with all the trimmings!

Finding a good wine to accompany such a meal can be tricky but we would certainly recommend the Clos Combe Long which is a vibrant, fruit forward Corbieres. 

Michel Raynaud has run this family estate for some years now, based in the heart of the Corbieres appellation in Southern France. North-east of Carcasonne and West of Narbonne, into the hills in the village of Causes.  Clos Combe Long is made from old Carignan and Grenache vines and the wine itself is bursting with ripe, red berry fruit and subtle sweet spice.

It is a delicious wine and perfect to serve with the roast on Easter Sunday!
