The palate, faithful to its name, is well balanced, harmonious and delicious. Aromas of mango, pineapple and lemon mingle with dill and fennel. A fine wine at the table or as an aperitif, as an accompaniment to all seafood and cheese. This grape evolves very well over time and gains in complexity.
Located in Restigné, in the heart of the Bourgueil appellation, Domaine des Mailloches is an old vineyard dating back over 100 years. Black fruit dominate this wine’s nose. Harmonious flavours of red fruit and liquorice develop on the palate, supported by well-structured tannins. Pairs well with grilled or red meats. Ageing potential of 10 – 15 years
Made with certified organic grapes, this is a dry, savoury red that from our experience, goes very well with cheese! No oak used, this is aged in cement vats to let the fruit do the talking. A percentage of every bottle sold goes to support protection of oceans and coastlines too!
Winemaker Fabien Murail is the brains behind the intriguing, Le Clos des Chaumes Fiefs Vendeens Blanc, a blend of 60% chenin blanc and 40% chardonnay . Resulting in fulsome aromas of baked white fruit which carry some mineral interest too.
A foodie wine.
Red cherry and bramble fruits with a hint of pepper, delicious by itself or with charcuterie and cheese. All the wines produced on this small estate are made with real passion, dedication and oodles of skill. Rich and fruity, the wines bear witness to the vineyard’s wonderfully warm, sunny climate.
This tiny 6.5 hectare domaine in the Loire was started by Emile Balland in 1999. The Ballands have been making wines in the Loire since 1650 and his father was instrumental in achieving recognition for the young AOC Coteaux du Giennois in the 1980s. The Beaux Jours blanc is produced from vineyards on the slopes of the Loire river at Bonny and Beaulieu and is a complex wine with leesy character and great finesse but at an everyday price.
Damien and Florent Burle took over the running of the estate from their father Edmond in 2004. Florent manages the vineyards and Damien is responsible for the winemaking. Their style is rusticity at its best. There is no destemming and the wines have bags of fruit and guts.
A wonderfully fragrant and concentrated Chardonnay. Stone fruit flavours, elderflower, beautiful balance.
Absolutely fantastic Chardonnay from a brilliant producer. A must-try for any Burgundy lover, the clay-rich soils of Bernouil give this wine its freshness, minerality and fruit-forward flavours. This is a light, fruity, easy-drinking wine. Such good value for money!
Very crisp and mineral, with rich citrus fruit, green apples and warm lees character – perfect with oysters of course!
98% Semillion with just a touch of Sauvignon Blanc added to enhance the freshness and acidity. Olivier Cazenave is the winemaker behind this experimental wine named after a revolutionary song, with roots in Northern Ireland but used as an anti-fascist song by the Italians in the 1940’s. A wild nose of tangerine, blossom and grassy notes, with an almost tropical palate of Sicilian lemons and Mediterannean herbs. A vibrant, energetic wine that pairs well with exotic spicy dishes or curry based foods.
Made by brothers Sebastien and Fabrice Montesquiou at their family run estate in Jurancon, nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Pyrenees mountains. The estate has been handed down from father to son since the 18th century, with the brothers taking a minimalist approach to their winemaking and following biodynamic principles. Made from local grape varieties Petit Manseng and Gros Manseng, this wine has a fruity nose with a gorgeous sweet mango flavour.
This is a 23 hectare family run domaine situated in the small village of Bernouil, close to Chablis. The wines are crisp and mineral and typical of the Chablis region. The soil in the vineyard has a high sand content and has managed to resist phylloxera and avoid the need for grafted rootstocks. This is an intense and mineral driven Chablis at an amazing price.
A top star domaine. Yves Cuilleron took over the reins as the 4th generation vigneron in 1987. He is based in Chavanay, just south of Condrieu and has built up a formidable reputation in recent years. Always developing new ideas and cuvées, our tasting here each year is mightily impressive.
