Awarded Gold Medal

Gilbert & Gaillard 2019


This Merlot from JP Chenet comes from carefully chosen vineyards in the Languedoc region of Southern France. A soft, easy to drink red wine with an expressive bouquet unveiling notes of red fruit, blackcurrant and cherry. With a very long finish, this wine reveals smooth and silky tannins.

The JP Chenet range of wines from South-West France offer amazing value for money. In 1984, the GCF group launched a uniquely-positioned wine -  JP Chenet. Inspired by New World wines, J.P. Chenet focused its advertising on the grape not the region, this and its quality focus, has lead to massive success. It has become the world’s top-selling French wine and so easily recognised. JP Chenet sells a bottle of wine somewhere in the world every two seconds!

Very hard to not give this 5 stars as the value for money is extraordinary! A really smooth quaff with a deliciously delicate taste and aromas, you could pay far more for more expensive wines but most would be hard pressed to match this one.
