2020 Domaine de Gournier Rouge, Cévennes, France
£9.75 £8.40 per bottle
£100.80 for a case of 12 bottles
This is unexpected gem of a red is made from a curious blend which fuses together Bordeaux flavours with those of the Northern Rhône. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc snuggle up close to Syrah and this makes for a juicy black fruited number with a touch of knavery on the finish. The Cévennes, a mountainous region on the eastern edge of the Massif Central, is sunny, but also cool at night and this, in turn, blesses Gournier with superb freshness which counters the mid-palate grunt!
