From a very fine estate in Coteaux du Languedoc, this is a luscious, rich white. It's a classic blend that wouldn't look out of place in the Rhône – Roussanne, Marsanne and Viognier, all barrel fermented. Rich peach, oak spice with edgy freshness.

Château Puech-Haut is the prized property of Gérard Bru, a passionate champion of the Languedoc. His vineyards occupy exceptional sites, with clay and limestone soils, topped by large galet stones (just like Châteauneuf-du-Pape). That and the warm Mediterranean climate results in a very luscious style. He has employed some top-name consultants from the start – first Bordeaux's Michel Rolland, now Philippe Cambie. He also boasts the largest barrel in the world – so big that there's a shop inside! Critic Andrew Jefford called Gérard Bru "a dark horse", whose grandfather used to swap wine for potatoes! Using classic grapes Roussanne, Marsanne and Viogner, barrel fermented in new oak, with bâtonnage, this is luscious, mouthfilling style.
"Scents of grilled stone fruit and pineapple. Plump and round in the mouth, silky, lingering finish"
