Deep, dark and wickedly easily to drink, Rex Mundi Special Edition is a beguiling black beauty. It was created by Parker-rated winemaker Hervé Sabardeil, whose lavish elixirs have been enchanting us for over a decade. It is a Carignan-Grenache blend made from grapes taken from the very oldest vines – some over 100 years in age – grown on the finest slate soils of Maury in the Roussillon. As you might imagine yields are minute, which accounts for the depth of colour and intensity of flavour. Hervé aged half the wine in oak cask for six months to lend a luxurious layer of complexity. This is a powerful red, beautifully balanced and terrifically long with herbal spice nuances. Slips down nicely on its own, or with rich game pie.

"Top notch! What a beautiful wine, very smooth, but also powerful! Highly recommended!" 5-Star Online Review
