As close as you could hope to come to an authentic Châteauneuf style without paying the premium. Finest Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre from neighbouring vineyards combine beautifully to give herb-scented, velvety black fruit, liquorice and spice.

Tasting notes: Silky smooth layers of rich black fruit; depth and intensity

Aroma: Ripe raspberry, spiced plum and crushed black pepper aromas

Allergy information: Contains Sulphites

Our No. 1 bestselling Rhône red, this gorgeous, velvety wine offers tremendous value. It’s from the only co-operative cellar in Châteauneuf du Pape and is owned and run by local growers. The reason it’s not labelled Châteauneuf (and is not twice the price!) is that the grapes are from vineyards next door to the famed appellation. What they do share is the same rock-strewn soil that promotes superb richness and ripeness – and vines that are similarly aged and gnarled, which results in tiny quantities of concentrated fruit. Created by the gifted Thierry Ferlay, it’s brimming with juicy red berries, black pepper spice, and rounded tannins. A real gem on its own, or spot-on with rack of lamb, a robust cassoulet or grilled stuffed peppers.
