We rate four of the finest reds sun-scorched Languedoc has to offer. But which one prevailed?

OUR VERDICT

CHÂTEAU DE CARAGUILHES CORBIÈRES 2015

Packed with character with an enticingly soft texture and subtle hints of wild herbs and sweet spice, this organic number is utterly irresistible! £10.99 / $12.50

GÉRARD BERTRAND MINERVOIS 2016

Full-bodied with a velvety, smoky palate and bursts of red cherry, this smooth blend is delightfully moreish. £9.99 / $11.50

SAINT AURIOL CORBIÈRES 2017

Earthy notes and dark berries jostle for attention in this mild, understated red. Just the ticket for novices working up slowly to more robust stuff. £6.99 / $7.90

CHÂTEAU CANET MINERVOIS

Light and surprisingly crisp, this subtly flavoured Languedoc is sure to appeal to white wine lovers. £12.50 / $14.20
