Five of our favourite wines from the Languedoc region
DOMAINE ANNE GROS ET JEAN PAUL TOLLOT LA CIAUDE MINERVOIS 2015 This bottle offers rich red fruit from celebrated Burgundy winemakers. Their 35 acres of old vines is at 660 feet, the same as Vosneromanée. This full-bodied blend of Carignan, Syrah and Grenache, expresses raspberry with wild herbs.

Irish winemaker Gavin Crisfield is one to watch. This cuvée is an elegant blend of Cinsaut, Carignan, Syrah and Grenache, with notes of concentrated fruit, black pepper and cherry from an outstanding vintage.

This is mostly Carignan, with Grenache and Syrah. Intensely perfumed nose is reminiscent of black fruits and olives grown on property; palate is grippy and finishes with Asian spice and cocoa powder.
