Very good minerailty with white flowers notes.We stock this because this is a really under appreciated grape variety.
Real favourite with us...Lovely fruit balance, refreshing and maintains its high standards over a whole evening....highly recommended as an alternative to Burgundy and far better that New World.
A true Mâconnais white with steely elegance and real finesse. This has vibrant citrus fruit and taut minerality. It is a truly good example of a traditional white Burgundy and a delicious food accompaniment. Girouettes are weather vains to be found on the numerous church spires typical of the Mâconnais. 13.5% ABV
Intensely fruity and mouthwateringly good!A classic Sancerre with ripe gooseberry fruit and zesty acidity. The style is full and round yet fresh and well-balanced. ABV 12.5%
A wine made from the heart with creativity and respect of our natural environment, bringing together tradition and innovation. This wine represents the diversity of our magnificent region blessed with an incredible variety of soils and climates that gives some of the most exciting wines in the world.Appealingly floral and fruity on the nose. Toasty, stone fruit, mineral with good weight and depth on the palate. Fresh finish.
Pale lemon gold with an explosive nose. Lovely flavours of apricot, peach and acacia blossom give way to an elegance and freshness balancing perfectly the richness of the grape.
William Fevre, Chablis combines lovely fruitiness with an attractive freshness and characteristic minerality, Chablis is a wine region with global renown. Domaine William Fèvres vineyards sit on Kimmeridgian subsoil and enjoy ideal exposures for the production of a very fine wine. Fleshy and elegant bouquet of William Fevre, Chablis also reveals citrus, white fruits and flowers aromas. The mouth is fresh, supple underscored by mineral.
A hidden gem from this rarely encountered single varietal, lovely dry and richly textured palate, it is impressively fragrant with hedgerow flowers and orange blossom. It is a wine made to be enjoyed young and fresh, with a mid-bodied palate rich with flavours of acacia, peach and greengages balanced by a dry mineral finish.
Made by the Perrin family who own Chateau Beaucastel, one of the greatest names in Châteauneuf du Pape. his wine is a skilful blend of such grapes as Grenache and Syrah, which find full expression on the elevations of Mont Ventoux.
Le Fou translates as The Madman, as it has long been thought only a madman would try to produce the perfect Pinot Noir in southern France. Obviously fuller than Pinot Noir from Burgundy, it has warm, ripe cherry fruit, is intense and sweet with a savoury twist. Raspberry and gamey on the nose, it has an almost graphite character with violets and blue berries. Gentle acidity with light and tasty tannins add balance to this smooth, appealing red. Its a wine that gets you thinking
with layers of really lovely fruit, its very drinkable and perfect if you prefer a riper, fruitier style of Pinot.
"Bright and clean dark berry fruit. Not at all confected, but warm, sweet and welcoming. Incredibly drinkable, with the sensation of biting into a ripe strawberry and letting the juice run down your chin. Fresh, bright and superb value" Judges Comments, The Wine Merchant 'Top 50'
Paler ruby than some earlier vintages due to the extreme proportion of Grenache, the nose is however as explosive, plush and opulent as ever, layered with exotic spice, cracked black pepper and of course streaked with crushed vanillin. The palate is instantly appealing, polished and smooth on entry but steeped in depth and texture as the flavours swirl around, lengthen and delight. The lasting impression is satisfying - a big, oppulent and sweet Grenache driven wine with obvious oak quality, great structure, length and finish.
This historic Domaine has been producing Beaujolais wines since 1850. The Domaine stretches over 34 ha divided over many of the Cru Classe villages within Beaujolais. The beautiful vaulted cellar is still the hub of the winery. The Sambadier family have owned Manoir du Carra for many generations and take an active role in the vineyards and in the cellar. The vines are tended to by hand and at harvest the bunches are picked by hand, and sorted on entry to the winery to check the individual grape quality. Tasting Note: "Ruby red in colour with redcurrant, cherry and flint on the nose. Classic red berry and mineral flavours are well balanced by the medium body and fresh style."
Soft sultry textures from the south of France. A slight dustiness reminiscent of the warm climate breezes from the glass, where fresh blackcurrant, black cherry and herbal aromas feed into rich plummy flavours on the palate, backed up by hints of pepper and spice. Tannins are soft and supple. A hint of saltiness and chocolate glances the palate towards the finish. Well balanced and easy to drink.
This cuvee perfectly reflects the identity of the appellation AOP Picpoul de Pinet : a safe bet! Yellow with bright highlights, generous notes of white fruits and citrus. Well balanced and lively on the palate with delicate lemony notes.
Elegant nose intermixing black fruits and mild spices. On the palate, very silky texture, abundant raciness. Noticeable substance with a fruit-driven aftertaste.
The Syrah brings aromatic strength and structure; The Grenache gives lovely red berry flavours. Great pairing for BBQ and can even be drunk lightly chilled.

This wine represents the diversity of our magnificent region blessed with an incredible variety of soils and climates that gives some of the most exciting wines in the world.Displays an explosive red fruit profile with moderate grippy tannins, surprising acidity and an elegance and impressive longevity on the finish. This is a serious Grenache, with purity of fruit and concentration. Shows real richness and depth whilst keeping the lively fruit expression synonymous with this varietal.
