About the wine

Smooooooth as you like
  • Virgile is a bit of a genius as far as we are concerned. He takes good grapes and turns them into great wine, then sells it to us at a ridiculously low price which benefits us, and, wonderfully, you too!
  • This is classic Southern French blend, so a lot of chunkiness from the Shiraz along with some delicious plum duff fruits - a kick of redcurrant from the Grenache helps it along the way and a slice of spice rounds it all off.
  • Steak. Big, bloody and ready for annihilation.

Best before
Drink now to 2029

Serving advice
Serve at 18-20°C. Open/Decant 1 hour before serving

Food match
Expressive and soft at the same time, it reveals the most refined cuisine and goes perfectly well with boeuf bourguignon or game cooked in pepper sauce, dry goat cheese, and dark chocolate desserts

Meet the winemaker - Virgile Joly

  • Virgile Joly is almost annoyingly perfect. He's ultra organic, with the certificates to prove it. Dashingly good looking, with a beautiful wife (who fell in love with him after one harvest). Stupidly talented with wine, he has glowing reviews from the doyenne of wine writing, Jancis Robinson.
  • Plus he's not afraid of hard work. He bottled his first vintage himself. 3,000 bottles, Virgile and a funnel. Now that's dedication!
  • 10 years later, he's producing some of the Languedoc's most sought after wines and we're using Angel funding to help him expand his winery and go on to even greater things. Plus his surname brings a smile to our face every time we see it - what's not to like!
