A Whistlestop tour arpound France with 6 of our current favourites
Chateau Cambon La Pelouse 2017 - One of the longest-standing producers with exports to England dating back to the end of the 17th Century, the 38 hectare Château Cambon La Pelouse’s consistent production of elegant medium-bodied wines have led US wine guru Robert Parker to describe it as “one of my favourite estates from the southern part of the Medoc”.
Gloire de Mon Pere, Visan, Domaine de la Bastide 2022 - From our favourite grower in the southern Rhone, this is 95% Syrah with a splash of Grenache. Beautifully supple and generous with red fruits to the fore.
Cotes de Nuits Villages, Maison Roche de Bellene 2020 - Superb red Burgundy from Nicolas Potel, has a wonderful sense of purity.
Clos des Abeilles, Coteaux Bourguignons 2020 - White Burgundy from a new appellation. Nicolas Potel is a hugely talented winemaker, possibly even greater than his renowned father, Gérard, before him. From “one of the top vintages in Burgundy for many years” this has gorgeous ripeness and a whip of minerality.
Quincy, Le Rimonet Joseph Mellot 2021 - Crisp, elegant Sauvignon with notes of grapefruit and lemon. Great with seafood or goats cheese.
Anjou Blanc, Chateau de Plaisance 2020 - Probably the finest Anjou Blanc you are likely to encounter.
Cotes du Rhone Rouge, Domaine de la Bastide 2022 - Proper Cotes du Rhone from a serious estate – lovely fruit structure with a twist of spice.
Vina Real Crianza - Classic Rioja, a lovely assemblage of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Graciano, Mazuelo and Garnacha all underpinned with 12 months in oak.
Terra d’Alter Alicante Bouschet - Full flavoured, intense Portuguese red; deeply coloured and powerful.
Malbicho Malbec -Argentinian Malbec offering aromas of red fruits and plums alongside floral and subtle, toasty vanilla notes. Medium bodied, the style here is soft, juicy and very well balanced with delicious red and dark berried fruits to the fore.
Grant Burge Benchmark Shiraz - A heady blackberry and damson-scented Australian red made with Shiraz fruit from sun-drenched vineyards. Full-bodied with soft tannins, a touch of vanilla and a sweet black-cherry finish..
Caparrone Montepulciano d’Abruzzo - Generously flavoured Montepulciano with aromas of violets and ripe black fruit. The palate is warm and generous with black cherry fruit, wild plum, firm tannins and good length.
