If you are a lover of good Châteauneuf, Château Courac's bold, striking Laudun is a brilliant value alternative, and the latest vintage could well be the best yet.

 This delicious, spicy, bramble-fruit-packed syrah/grenache blend has been a Mr.Wheeler customer favourite for a long time, and the previous vintage was one of our most-often purchased wines over the last year.

We tasted this glorious wine with the Arnaud family in the small village of Laudun in the south of the Rhône Valley - whilst less warm and opulent than the 2015, it is undeniably finer, with a darker, richer character. Pronounced and powerful, with a dense, chewy palate and notes of liquorice and spice enhancing the dark berry fruits. Will keep for a while, but hard to resist now, and the equal of many a Châteauneuf-du-Pape at more than twice the price due to its proximity to the prestigious appellation.

Tasting note: Laudun is one of the superior villages of the southern Rhône - one for lovers of Châteauneuf with its notable warmth and big, rich, spicy black fruit. Great value and perfectly mature, this is a wine which really sings!

Bruce Palling - Wine Editor of the Week
"This is one of the best Côtes du Rhône reds I have ever tasted full-flavoured with an elegance and purity that belies its humble appellation. Located in the relatively unknown Laudun district, it is made predominantly from the Grenache grape with a small amount of Syrah and Mourvèdre, which are also used in Châteauneuf-du-Pape; its grander and more expensive neighbour. The 2015 vintage is one of the most successful in the entire Rhône Valley and while it is in perfect form now, will certainly continue to improve for a few more years." (Previous vintage)
