A real flavour of southern France in this fabulous, rich herby red from an exceptional area. Its vineyards weave through grand appellations, whose top bottles fetch £25-30. Our Giant costs a mere fraction, but delivers every bit of dark fruit taste.

Val de Montferrand's vineyards run like ribbons through the Grand Cru of Pic Saint Loup, "one of the most sought-after zones of the Languedoc" (Andrew Jefford). Here lie famous estates like Domaine de l'Hortus and Château Lascaux, whose wines fetch £25+. It's a region where the coastal plains transition into grand mountains, namely Pic Saint Loup and Hortus. Legend has it that the two used to be one great peak, until two lovers, Estiennou and Estiennette, were fleeing an arranged marriage that would keep them apart. The giant Gargantua heard their cries and, taking pity, used his great sword to split the mountains and give them a means of escape! Love story aside, it's a rich, dark red, with gorgeous depth thanks to the cool climate.
"Black fruit, herbal and pungent spice. Simply gorgeous! Very good plus!"
