XV du President 2018

Lovers of Rhône reds –

Grenache master Mark Hoddy knows the vineyards of France’s sunny south like the back of his hand. He should, too – he’s always combing the area in search of the perfect sites.

Mark also heartily agrees that the Roussillon region can produce “outstanding dry wines from Grenache” (Jancis Robinson, Master of Wine). His ‘presidential’ red is the result of all his hard work, as it’s crafted with premium fruit from some of the best vineyards across the Roussillon and neighboring Languedoc. Many of the vines are over 100 years old, and while they may yield a miserly amount of grapes, the ones they do produce are seriously concentrated in flavor. No wonder Le XV has won so much acclaim …

Last vintage, it scooped a double-gold medal from the China Wine & Spirits Awards, and a gold medal from France's prestigious wine guide, Gilbert & Gaillard – we’re expecting equally impressive results from this just released 2016.

The reason for such critical acclaim? Tasted blind, you could be fooled into thinking it was a far pricier Grenache from the southern Rhône. Discover this super-smooth, great-value treat for yourself.
