Great rugby and great occasions lie in wait as Vaughan explained:
"We're absolutely delighted on a number of fronts. Munster are one of the giants of Europe, with a number of players in the Lions squad at the moment. They're always there and thereabouts.
"They've been here a number of times, so there's a good kinship between the clubs and the last time they came here was a memorable occasion by all accounts.
"All the French clubs have massive strength in depth, as we saw with Biarritz in the Amlin Challenge Cup this year, and Perpignan will be no different.
"They'll also have a couple of old boys in Luke Narraway and Alasdair Strokosch who we'll be happy to welcome back.
"And, Edinburgh were beaten semi finalists in 2011-12 so will be a tough proposition. It promises to be a great group and good for us commercially."
It's potentially a tough pool, but it's exactly what Gloucester are preparing for according to Vaughan:
"We want to be competitive at this level, hence our preseason programme this year which is designed to really prime us for this level of rugby.
"From a fan's perspective, they will be three fantastic places to visit, three great cities. So I think everyone is happy with the draw."
