Le XV is known to thousands as our ‘King of the Big Reds’. It owes its intensity to the luxurious Grenache based blend. Old vines that grow on the rocky slopes of the Pyrenean foothills yield tiny quantities of richly concentrated grapes. Le XV also benefits from the painstaking care of self confessed southern French wine aficionado Mark Hoddy. His draconian selection process sees him earmark in advance every vine he intends to harvest, and micro-manage every stage of winemaking. This takes time, but you can taste the result in each delicious glass! Richly textured, with layers of ripe bramble fruit kept smooth by warming alcohol and soft, ripe tannins. Presented in a magnum, this is a red to be shared amongst friends at dinner parties.
"Rich dark and weighty red becoming a firm favourite. Full on at 15%"
