Have you tried Le Soula wine? If not, you really should.

Le Soula is a joint enterprise between the famed Languedoc-Roussillon winemaker Gérard Gauby and Richards Walford Wine Importers.

The focus at all times is on using natural methods and minimal intervention so as to allow the grapes fully to express the extraordinary terroir. Only natural yeasts are used. No chaptalisation, acidification, use of enzymes or fining are undertaken.

While wine has only been made at Le Soula since 2001, tasting of these very first vintages indicates that the wines have a long ageing potential.
