  • 2018 Château Bellecroix, Bordeaux SuperieurRed Wine

    2018 Château Bellecroix, Bordeaux Superieur

    £1095

    Château Bellecroix has a long and rich history dating back to the late 1800s. It was purchased in the 1970s by the owner of Château Haut Calens, Albert Yung. Albert has since embarked upon a programme of modernising the entire estate, replanting the vineyards and rebuilding the winery and cellars. Located on the right bank of the Garonne, the clay and gravel soils are ideal for growing Merlot and Cabernet. The 35 acres of vines average 25 years of age and yield healthy, richly flavoured grapes. This wine from the superb 2015 vintage is a blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon. It’s a silky-textured, medium-bodied Bordeaux with blackcurrants, black cherry, violets and a hint of cedar box. Finely balanced by lively acidity and smooth tannins.

It is in this wild setting that this Maris Vermentino is made from organic grapes grown in an environment promoting biodiversity and sustainability.

    In the glass it opens with floral notes of hawthorn and lime.  Elegant on the palate, it is both round and refreshing.

  • 2019 ‘Est-Ouest’ Côtes du Rhône, Domaine André BrunelRed Wine

    2019 ‘Est-Ouest’ Côtes du Rhône, Domaine André Brunel

    £1150

    This is a spicy, juicy Côtes du Rhône with exuberant ripe red fruit framed by a good structure, rounded tannins and a lovely balance. A delicious and approachable Rhône blend with an elegant finish.

    The vines are grown in two plots located to the east and west of the Rhône (hence the name) and impart the complexity of the different Rhône terroirs. The complementary qualities from these two terroirs allow the 35-year-old Grenache vines to reveal all their potential: elegance and finesse come from the small yields of 35 hectolitres per hectare and clay-limestone subsoil of the Saint Geniès de Comolas terroir in the Gard, while the round pebbles and clay subsoil of the Travaillan in the Vaucluse impart structure and power to the blend.

  • 2020 Rosé d’Anjou, Domaine des CèdresRose Wine

    2020 Rosé d’Anjou, Domaine des Cèdres

    £1185

    With a pretty pink hue, this is a fruity rosé with fresh strawberry flavours combined with white stone fruit and a hint of black pepper. Smooth and rounded, with a balanced sweetness.

    Rosé d’Anjou is an appellation for rosé wines from the Anjou district of France’s western Loire Valley wine region.

Fermentation was not completed through to dryness in order to preserve a natural sweetness in the resulting wine.

  • 2019 ‘6ème Sens Rouge’, Gerard BertrandRed Wine

    2019 ‘6ème Sens Rouge’, Gerard Bertrand

    £1195

    Aromas of ripe red fruit aromas and a touch of spice lead to a smooth palate of blackcurrant, fresh red fruits and vanilla nuances. The tannins are fine and silky and contribute to the balance of this eminently quaffable wine.

    The contrasted region of the Languedoc Roussillon produces fruity wines which represent the exceptional diversity of terroirs. The grapes for the 6ème Sens Rouge are grown in the foothills of the Corbières and Minervois. Here, the sunny climate and proximity to the Mediterranean, offer the ideal landscape for vine growing.

  • 2014 Côtes du Rhône, Domaine Roche AudranRed Wine

    2014 Côtes du Rhône, Domaine Roche Audran

    £1250

    The highly motivated and energetic Vincent Rochette is only in his mid-30s but has already made a name for himself for his superbly sculpted Visans and Cotes du Rhones. He owns land in both the communes of Visan and Buisson and this diversity of terroirs largely explains the extraordinary complexity in his wines.

    Stunning is a word that can easily be over-used but it is hard to think of another word for the quality. His organic, biodynamic wines have an additional depth to them and exhibit a purity of fruit and ripeness which manifests itself in the wines’ silky texture as much as its flavours.

    This is a wonderful Cotes du Rhone made from a 60-year-old vineyard on the slopes of Rasteau and Cairanne.  The vineyard is surrounded by natural vegetation that contributes to the aromatic complexity of the wines: Aleppo pine, white oak, viburnum, boxwood, rosemary, dogwood, thyme.   It is intensely fleshy, generous and full-bodied red wine packed with mulberry spice and damson fruit.   Smooth and soft tannins with excellent length and freshness.

  • 2008 Muscat de Beaumes de Venise ‘Cuvée Les Trois Fonts’, Domaine de Coyeux – 375mlDessert Wine, Port & Dessert Wine

    2008 Muscat de Beaumes de Venise ‘Cuvée Les Trois Fonts’, Domaine de Coyeux – 375ml

    £1250

    A delicious sweet wine, with notes of lychee, candied apricot and pear, tropical pineapple complemented by honey undertones. Rich, smooth and sweet on the palate, beautifully balanced by freshness and elegance.

    The vineyard provides naturally healthy conditions, due to its altitude, exposure to the sun and the microclimate of the vineyard and enables gentle methods of cultivation to be employed, in order to maintain a healthy vineyard. The vines are planted in alluvial, sandy soils. Excessive buds and leaves are removed in the spring to aerate the strains and increase the leaf’s surface area exposed to the sun. Debudding reduces the production of berries and concentrates the flavours and aromas in those remaining. The living soils, where microbial life creates organic soil enrichment, nourishes the vines.

  • 2018 Château des Antonins Bordeaux SupérieurRed Wine

    2018 Château des Antonins Bordeaux Supérieur

    £1295

    The 2016 vintage saw almost perfect conditions in Bordeaux, with hot summer days and cool nights, allowing the fruit to ripen evenly while maintaining acidity.  In the glass this wine has a deep ruby-red colour, leading to an inviting bouquet of red plum, black cherry and blackcurrant, with hints of spice. The palate is concentrated and supple, with smooth tannins and layers of bright red fruit.

    Château des Antonins is located on the left bank of the Garonne, south of Graves. The red varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc are planted on clay gravel soils, producing wines with powerful and pure fruit concentration.  All of the vineyards are managed sustainably and with the use of cover crops to avoid erosion and aerate the soils.

  • 2018 Chateau FayauRed Wine

    2018 Chateau Fayau

    £1350

    This is a very good drinking Bordeaux from the excellent 2018 vintage. Although initially challenging the balance of sun and rain at the right times resulted in wines that are intensely rich, deep with balancing acidity and a fresh, fruity appeal.  Of which this Chateau Fayau 2018 offering is a great example – delicate aromas of crunchy blackcurrant lead to a rounded palate, with supple tannins and aromatic freshness. Fantastically modern and versatile Bordeaux.

    The south-facing vineyards are situated on the slopes of Cadillac.  Importantly in the modern eco-conscious world Chateau Fayau holds the Haute Valeur Environmentale certification, which officially recognises the environmental performance of winegrowers, including biodiversity conservation, plant protection strategies, managed fertiliser use and water resource management.

  • 2018 ‘1753’ Syrah Sans Sulfites, Château de CampugetRed Wine

    2018 ‘1753’ Syrah Sans Sulfites, Château de Campuget

    £1395

    Classic Syrah nose with a very intense fruit-driven character, this classy wine shows notes of liquorice and violet complemented by a hint of dark chocolate. Rich black fruits are enveloped by a smooth and velvety texture through to a lovely fresh finish.

    The grapes come from the Château’s vineyard, which is situated 15 kilometres south of Nîmes, near the village of Manduel in the heart of the ‘Appellation d’Origine Protégée’ (AOP) of the Costières de Nîmes. However, winemaker Frank-Lin Dalle has chosen to designate this wine as Vin de France to distinguish the distinctive style of this wine, which has been made without sulphites. The average age of the vines is approximately 25 years. The main characteristic of the vineyard is the soil, which is formed of ‘gress’, an accumulation of rounded pebbles that have been deposited by the overflowing Rhône River thousands of years ago. These pebbles allow the vines to grow in the best possible conditions and due to this natural soil filter; the vine’s roots can easily draw the necessary water for their growth. The vines also benefit from the Mediterranean sunshine, which bring the grapes to perfect maturity and allows them to be picked at maximum phenolic maturity in early September
