From Tesco website, seems a good price too :-)

I think I have had this one but can't be 100% certain as it was a while ago, be worth getting one bottle and "giving it a test" Hope it's ok for you

Tesco Finest Chateauneuf Du Pape 75cl SAVE £5.00 Was £12.98 Now £7.98 SAVE £5.00 - valid from 10/12/2008 until 06/01/2009

Rich, soft red with curranty, peppery, flavours. Try it with beef Wellington, or with good Camembert!
What Our Expert Said
Of the places in the world where the Grenache grape makes its richest, most impressive wines, the most famous are Priorato in Catalonia, and Chateauneuf-du-Pape, just north of Avignon in south-east France. The famous, large 'pudding stone' pebbles that cover the Chateauneuf vineyards absorb the sun's heat during the day, and release it at night, making for super-ripe grapes. This combines 60% Grenache with 25% Syrah, and small amounts of Mourvedre and Counoise.

This wine is made using traditional vinification methods. It undergoes a long period in vat and is then matured in traditional oak barrels.
History
Les Caves Saint Pierre has remained in the Bouachon family for more than a century and they pride themselves on their reputation for making some of the best Châteauneuf-du-Pape in France. This renowned winegrowing region, bathed in sunlight, boasts soils covered with large siliceous pebbles ("pudding stones") which create the famous "oven" effect. The 13 grape varieties grown in this unique terroir are united to achieve a harmonious blend with full and lasting flavours and a characteristic maturity.

thanks to the post above ... try this code might work :
XX-CERT to get a further £15 off.

I have to say Tesco Finest wine is surprisingly good, never had a bad bottle yet, worth a punt at that price.
