Having enjoyed our new white from Château Courac last week it only made sense for me to revisit their brilliant red this weekend, so say a welcome hello to one of the best tasting and priced reds in our portfolio, the Laudun Red.

Often described amongst the team as a mini- Châteauneuf", the latest 2016 vintage is yet again a triumph of winemaking. A lovely warming blend of syrah and grenache creates a rich, ripe medley of forest fruit flavours; juicy blackberries, crunchy redcurrants and sweet black cherries. Add in a hint of black pepper and a finish of gamey red leather, all beautifully smooth and balanced, and you get an absolute gem for any occasion.

Château Courac's wonderful red is produced like its white by the Arnaud family in the small village of Laudun, in the warm south of the Rhône Valley. It is amazingly even finer than the previous superb 2015 vintage, with a richer, more pronounced character. Will certainly keep for a while, but equally already drinking beautifully, so why wait? Open up and enjoy.

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!

Critic's review:
"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)

Ready to drink and very nice quality - classic Rhone red.
A lovely red wine full of flavour and body. It is effectively a chaeauneuf du paper at an everyday drinking price.
Gordon Mitchell
This is an outstanding wine from an excellent producer in a top year for this appellation. What more could you want?
Drinking beautifully now. Great value.
