The Roussillon’s remote village of Maury is “home to thunderously powerful Grenache” (Andrew Jefford), just what’s required for the legendary XV. This 15% red has inspired a generation of Big Reds and remains incomparably rich and satisfying.

Le XV is known to thousands as our ‘King of the Big Reds’. It owes its intensity to Grenache from vines up to 100 years old that grow on the rocky slopes of the Pyrenean foothills around Maury, and yield only tiny quantities of grapes. Le XV also benefits from the painstaking care of self confessed southern French wine aficionado Mark Hoddy, whose draconian selection process sees him earmark in advance every vine he intends to harvest and micro-manage every stage of the winemaking. This takes time, but you can taste the result in every delicious glass! Richly textured, with layers of ripe bramble fruit kept smooth by warming alcohol and soft, ripe tannins, this is a red to enjoy with roast lamb, peppered steak or wild boar sausages.
