Aromas of red and black fruit and pomegranate seeds announce a wine of great freshness and superb tension.

A vibrant, energetic wine that pairs well with exotic spicy dishes or curry based foods.

Mickaël Hardouin runs 21 hectares in Saumur Champigny. He converted to organic farming in 2012 knowing that it required a far more hands on approach in the vineyard, but with the aim of making wines that speak much more about their place.

Alix Roque spent time making wine in Burgundy before heading home to her mothers vineyards in the heart of Faugeres. Wines from this region often show the warm and dry climate in their fruit, however Alix uses Burgundian techniques, picking early and at night making Le Presbytere a fresh, harmonious red. Bit of spice, bit of herbs with some juicy raspberries, the long finish is full of dark chocolate before notes of damson and prune.

The Cuvée Dentelle is 100% Petit Manseng. The grapes are picked very ripe, end of October / start of November, as if picking for a sweet wine. This gives the wine huge concentration along with low yields. The wines are vinified entirely in 1-2 year old barrels sourced from some of the best Châteaux in Bordeaux. Jean-Joseph uses natural yeasts which can be challenging to vinify given the level of ripeness of the grapes. Throughout the process SO2 levels are kept at a minimum in line with biodynamic regulations.
A dry, full-bodied Chenin Blanc with a succulent mouthfeel, intense aromas and remarkable ageability.
Wine maker Guillaume Reynouard has 18 hectares, including a parcel of Pineau d’Aunis, a grape that was forgotten and vilified in the Saumur region, but which is being appreciated more and more over the last couple of years. The distinguishing characteristic of pineau d’aunis is black pepper. This is accompanied by menthol notes of Sichuan pepper and discrete tannins. Drinks well with oily fish, chicken and Asian vegetable dishes.
Arbois-Pupillin is renowned for producing Jura’s top reds. This fruity, herbaceous red wine has been made with Ploussard grapes which are local to the Jura region of eastern France. A light, fresh wine full of floral notes, perfect for summer evenings.
The Aurissets prefer a very full-bodied style of Jurançon – all their wines are aged in used barriques which gives complexity and richness to the 100% Petit Manseng Cuvée Marie-Louise. This is a superb Jurançon Moelleux, wonderfully complex aromas of apricot, candied citrus, flowers and exotic fruit with a hint of vanilla. A young wine that is gorgeous now but potentially better in five to ten years.

They are to be found on some of the finest tables from Paris, London, New York and further afield.
