DRINK OF THE WEEK
17th February 2020
Taste the Difference Gaillac Rouge
Sainsbury's £8.00 currently on offer at £6.75
Drinker Rating 91
Hands up if you've heard of the grape variety Bruacol? No, let me help you out, it's also know as Fer Servadou? No, me neither. I've been in this game for decades and got exams and all sorts and I've never heard of Bruacol - sounds more like an indigestion remedy than a grape.
Any road-up, Bruacol makes up over 50% of this brilliant wine from Gaillac in south central France. This is full on bramble fruit, casis and smoky black pepper, it is layered and complex and frankly a miracle at £6.75.
Buy lots of this, it'll keep until Christmas if you can resist it.
