A delicious and approachable Madiran produced from a sustainably farmed blend of Tannat and Cabernet Franc.
Soft and generous, showing a wealth of dark berry fruit. Despite the richness and ample fine, ripe tannins this still boasts a charming freshness.
The name of this unusual Bourgogne Pinot Noir refers to the latitude of Burgundy, and it is a blend of out best Bourgogne Rouge, Cote de Nuits Village, Marsannay and Vosne-Romanee.Maison Marchand-Tawse
The 2018 is sourced from a very special parcel of over 100-year-old vines in Nezingnan l'Eveque (east of Beziers). This "Old Vines Series" release Carignan is a real treat. Large pudding stones cover the floor of the vineyard; gently warming the fruit, ensuring full ripeness and flavours. a combination of handpicking, extremely low yields, minimal traditional winemaking techniques and time in a combination of American and French oak produces this wine of fantastic concentration.
Great, deep, royal purple-black colour, fresh nose of blackcurrants, with thyme and mint notes, intense dark red and black fruits, as well as dark chocolate, joined by the addition of chocolate and treacle toffee on the palate. Very focussed, backed by a strong backbone of rich tannins and a long peppery and savoury finish.
A light aromatic wine with an abundance of juicy red fruit aromas. Bright and flavoursome with supple tannins that are beautifully integrated. The acidity is just right to keep the wine lively and refreshing.
Not your thin, lightweight Merlot but rich, vibrant and very more-ish. Typical full-on red berry fruit on the nose (typical of Merlot) which leads through to a rich, vibrant and aromatic palate that swirls with lashings of ripe fruit underpinned by good structure.
Chateau des Tours is a beautiful estate dating back to the 14th century with the Chateau surrounded by the vineyards. Their Brouilly is a wine that is all about elegance, balance and finesse. The nose is full of dark fruit, lightened by floral notes. In the mouth this is beautifully poised with silky tannins and a great length.Chateau des Tours
A brilliant, gleaming white gold wine. We get the measure of the 2019 vintage in the glorious generosity of the nose with its delicate notes of white flowers and sweet almond. Clay limestone soil complexifies the aromatic palette with its exotic fruit and spices, adding volume and depth to the Roussanne which offers up more delicate fruity aromas such as vine peach and pear. Incisive and well-balanced, the palate opens with the immense freshness characteristic of our wines on notes of white fruit, mint and liquorice. Due to its continental situation, the Domaine’s terroir gives rise to surprising wine profiles… wines of great elegance that promise great cellaring potential.
An appealingly cherry red. Aromas of red and black fruit and pomegranate seeds announce a wine of great freshness and superb tension. An impression confirmed in the mouth that opens with fresh summer fruits such as wild cherry and finishes on more spicy, peppery and floral notes. A poised and magnificently balanced wine. Less complex that our cuvee Magdeleine (no barrel ageing), Le Sentier finds in the Domaine’s terroir, so atypical for our region, a highly original source of expression for this classic Burgundy grape.
Compellingly deep purple in colour. The generous spring rains of 2019 enabled the vines to replenish their reserves and put their energies into producing a magnificent crop. The summer was very hot, but the geographical situation of the vineyard creates great thermal amplitude between day and night-time temperatures, offering excellent conditions for the grapes to attain optimum maturity at the moment of picking. We find the characteristic aromas of this wine when it is young, floral, fruity, spicy, complex and powerful. The attack is incisive, the tannins already well-integrated, and the generosity of the 2019 vintage shows itself in the persistent, lightly saline finish.
Fresh black cherries and cassis notes of the nose. With a juicy palate showing soft tannins with more red fruit flavours, and a touch of spice on the finish.
Beautiful, brilliant garnet colour. The nose is fine and delicate with aromas of black fruit, tobacco and vanilla. The palate is generous and smooth, with velvety tannins imparting outstanding balance. The finish is rich yet gentle at the same time, with more oaky flavours on the back of palate. A very fine wine, with all the signs of beautifully ripened grapes and perfectly mastered ageing.Chateau Argadens
From indisputably the best area for rosé production in southern France comes this fruity number full of delicious strawberry and peach notes with smooth, fresh and ethereal structure on the finish.
Produced by computer executive turned wine maker Guy Salmona from a blend of the local speciality Negrette alongside Syrah and Cabernet Franc. Bursting with sappy direct, dark fruit with a fresh mineral edge.
Deep ruby red. A rich, expressive bouquet with notes of red-berried fruit, blackberry and blackcurrant with highlights of oak. The palate is rounded, ample and flavourful, displaying remarkable freshness. The harmonious balance of the tannins, which imparts fine aromatic length with a predominantly fruity back-of-palate, is to be savoured. One of the great achievements of the 2017 vintage, a very fine wine that stands out by virtue of its freshness and vibrancy.
Family-owned since 1898, the vineyard was gradually expanded and became the principal activity of the Couderc family in 1985. High up on the plateau de Pujols, a rocky outcrop overlooking the Dordogne Valley and facing the slopes of Saint Emilion, are the constructions of five successive generations. The entire estate has been modernised and the vineyard is run with passion and painstaking care by Mr Couderc senior, aided, since 1997, by his son Julien, a qualified viticulturist and oenologist.
5 hectares of sustainably-managed vines averaging 60 years' age contribute a great deal of character to this hefty wine. Green harvesting and thinning help to lower yields to 30hl/ha. The resulting crop is fermented at 30 degrees and vatted for a month before ageing in oak casks for 18 months, 60 - 70% of which is new oak.
This wine expresses the almost tender notes of Malbec as well as rich, milky fudge notes from ageing in oak. Rural, complex and complete - a delicious wine.
Most famous appellation of Chablis, this Grand Cru has a south exposure and a soil from the Kimmeridgien, very rocky with white and dense clays.
The Domaine has a large (for the region) continuous parcel of 3 ha, running from the bottom of the hill, nearly up to the top, which allows them to divide it in three different parcels (the bottom, the middle and the top). They are always vinified separately but blended all together at the end to make one cuvée. The average age of the vines is 50 to 60 years old.
2018 was a generous harvest which gave complex, expressive and generous wines which hold a perfect balance between ripeness and acidity.
Aromatic with clean mineral notes and hints of citrus. The palate is medium bodied with crisp, appley acidity, tight , pure fruit flavours of white peach and pears finished with a classic, steely, dry finish.
Produced from a small (0.49 ha) plot of 50 to 68 year old vines, this is classic Chambolle. Hand harvested and fermented using only indigenous yeast it then underwent maturation in 35% new oak barrels.Maison Roche de Bellene
