For some of the finest Languedoc reds, head for Pic Saint Loup. There you'll discover Gérard Bru, a passionate champion of the appellation and behind some of its best wines. His vineyards occupy exceptional sites, with clay and limestone soils, topped by large galet stones (like Châteauneuf-du-Pape). That and the warm Mediterranean climate results in a very luscious style. From the start he's employed some top-name consultants – first Bordeaux's Michel Rolland, now Philippe Cambie. He also boasts the largest barrel in the world – so big there's a shop inside! Critic Andrew Jefford called Gérard Bru "a dark horse", whose grandfather used to swap wine for potatoes. He also specialises in Wagyu beef. A perfect partner to this fine, rich red.

"The wines have beautiful purity and plenty of freshness. Easily one of my favorite estates" Jeb Dunnock
