From the small village of Gaujac, next to a Roman spa dating back to the 5th century BC, this is a delightful, ripe, supple red. It speaks clearly of the southern Rhône – ripe fruit, wild herbs and floral notes with savoury tobacco spice. It's from Les Vignerons de Gaujac, a very small co-op, founded in 1928 and now with only seven members. Jean Paul Coste is the grandson of the founder, determined to keep it independent - for his grandfather and for the growers, so committed to their vines. He has many Gold medals to his name, including this red, from a stand out Rhône vintage. Look forward to lovely ripeness and depth in this appealing Rhône red, made mostly from Grenache and Syrah. Great at a barbecue or with vegetable cobbler.

"Supple, silky fruit with that classic Rhône edge of wild herbs, this is a very appealing red" Mark Hoddy
