Gourgazaud is a bottom shelf, a LCBO sleeper. A French red with a weird name and a price that suggests ordinary – so hardly anyone buys it. However, if you lived in a place with independent shops, Gourgazaud would be front ’n centre as a great example of what France offers in red wine. A delicious mouthful of warmth, spice and the feeling of the south of France. Rich, smooth but also down to earth. Wine for beef, or anything hearty. Best in small pours from a huge glass.
