Boutenac is the star cru of southern France's great Corbières region. It's where renowned Gérard Betrand makes his £50 a bottle red too. This is an exceptional wine, aged in new barriques to lend toasty oak and tobacco notes to the luscious fruit.

Corbières is one of the best-known regions of southern France, adored for its characterful, robust reds, laced with dark fruit, wild herb and tobacco notes. This is a terrific find from the Terre d'Expression cellar in Fabrezan. It's a cooperative cellar, that works with its growers to gain exceptional quality grapes. All the fruit for Villa Pech Fourcat comes from a single estate in Boutenac, the only village in Corbières which may be named on the label. Its wines are supreme thanks to very stony soils, hot dry summers and cooling winds. Vines for this red are, on average, 65 years old and very low yielding, which only adds to the power and intensity of this fabulous wine. For drinking now, open a couple of hours beforehand and decant.

"A great find from Corbières' cru of Boutenac – a luscious red that is delightful now and will age" Mark Hoddy
