Vaucluse IGP

  • Gold, Gilbert & Gaillard International Competition, 2023

This well priced southern Rhône red is packed with herby black fruit and spice character. If it hailed from any of its neighbouring regions, it would cost a pretty penny. But from the often overlooked Vaucluse, it delivers great flavour and value.

Welcome to the Vaucluse, a southern Rhône wine region, just on the edge of Provence. Its extensive vineyards nurture an array of native grapes like Grenache, Syrah, Marselan and Carignan, that make ripe, warming, fruit-laden reds. The nearest neighbours are famous wine regions Rasteau, Gigondas, Vacqueyras and Châteauneuf-du-Pape. It’s lucky enough to share the same climate and have similar soils too. In the case of Willem the Silent and Châteauneuf, it shares an award-winning winemaker as well. Thierry Ferlay has won scores of Gold medals for many of his wines – from vins de pays to Châteauneuf. Enjoy the herb and liquorice-scented fruit of his latest offering with sausage and mash or shepherd's pie of the meat or veggie sort.
