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.
"Lovely smooth wine. Absolutely delicious, perfect all-rounder. One of my favourites"
Online Review For the 2015 vintage
A consistent top Gold medal winner, this gorgeous, velvety Rhône red also 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, this exceptional Côtes du Rhône is a Top 10 choice for customers each year. The 2016 vintage is a real gem – spot-on with rack of lamb, a robust cassoulet or roast duck.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...
and fell in love with wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share their delicious wines with
friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
