    £1650

    La Rouviole is located in the renowned Cru La Livinière area of Minervois.  Wines are made from blends of Syrah, Grenache, Cinsault and Carignan from the best and oldest plots of the estate. 

    This 2019 Minervois ‘La Régence is a full-flavoured and perfumed wine showing notes of ripe cassis with elegant cedar and chocolate notes and a fine, velvety texture.

The Mediterranean is less than 25 miles away, which influences the vines with cooling oceanic breezes. The vineyard is surrounded by scrubland, with thyme, lavender, rosemary and almond, fig, cherry and olive trees all contributing to the aromatic complexity of the wines.

  • 2020 ‘1753’ Viognier, Château de CampugetWhite Wine

    2020 ‘1753’ Viognier, Château de Campuget

    £1695

    An elegant Viognier with hints of nectarine, ginger and honeysuckle. Precise, crisp and balanced on the palate, with a roundness of generously structured fruit and a long, elegant finish.

    The vineyard that this Viognier comes from is situated 15 kilometres south of Nîmes, near the village of Manduel, in the heart of the ‘Appellation d’Origine Protégée’ of the Costières de Nîmes. The average age of the vines is about 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 brings the grapes to perfect maturity and allows them to be picked at maximum phenolic maturity which assured elegance in the resulting wine.

  • 2015 La Douzieme, Domaine Aubai MemaRed Wine

    2015 La Douzieme, Domaine Aubai Mema

    £1750

    The refined nose is driven by plum, cherry and peach with a spicy touch of garrigue (think herbes de Provence). Chewy, powerful palate with aromatic depth placing rich, suave Mediterranean flavours to the fore.

    The name is best explained by winemaker Mark Haynes: When I first started making this wine, the percentage of viognier was a twelfth of the total, about 8%, and with ‘twelfth’ being ‘douzième’ in French, the wine pretty much found its own name. (Somewhat more obliquely, from Côte Rotie we get ‘la côte’ one of whose meanings is ‘rib’ and being a feminine word, led me to Eve, who it is said was created from Adam’s twelfth rib.

  • 2015 Lunatico, Domaine Aubai MemaRed Wine

    2015 Lunatico, Domaine Aubai Mema

    £2100

    We love old vine Grenache and this beauty is no exception!  Intense ruby colour in the glass with a focused, expressive nose with upfront red fruit and a subtle spice note. Full, ample, warm palate opening up to the fruit. The peppery nose dimension recurs on the finish. Lovely length that draws you into that second sip…

    The Grenache for Lunatico comes from a small north-facing vineyard over half a century old. The grapes are hand-picked then sorted, though not destemmed, and vinified very gently over a 25 day period using only natural yeasts. The 24 months spent in 600-litre barrels gives Lunatico an ageing perspective of 10-15 years.
