  • Domaine de Cray Sauvignon de Touraine

    I went to the Wine Fair in Paris in February to hunt out a Loire Sauvignon Blanc. After much tasting )over 100) found a firm favourite in Domaine de Cray.

    Sauvignon Blanc can often be quite sharp, especially from a so-called “cool” climate region like the Loire Valley. So imagine my pleasure after many, many¬† slurps of quite sharp and acidic versions this lovely softer Sauvignon tickled my palate. No compromise on the flavour, nor on the freshness and summeriness, but nice and round. A beaut for the summer.

  • Domaine de Cray Touraine Rouge

    I went to the Wine Fair in Paris in February to hunt out a Loire Sauvignon Blanc. After much tasting found a firm favourite in Domaine de Cray. As luck would have it, they also produce this very classic Loire red made from 50% Gamay (as in Beaujolais), 30% Cabernet Franc, and 20% Cot. It’s fresh, it’s light and combines hints of freshly mown grass from the Cabernet with the parma violets from the Gamay. A really super summer wine with great complexity.

  • Laurent Miquel Solas Chardonnay (oaked)

    Laurent Miquel Solas Chardonnay (oaked)

    60% of the blend was aged in oak barrels for 4 months, so there’s a clean but subtle hint of oak, not a heavy oak at all. Another great example of why we should love Chardonnay!

  • Laurent Miquel Solas Albarino

    Laurent Miquel Cru Solas Albarino

    Albarino was first brought to Galicia in Spain by French monks from Cluny along the fabled Santiago de Compostela route many centuries ago.
    Now it’s returned to this high altitude estate in France, and how! It’s rich, it’s crisp it’s balanced, it’s different, it’s lovely!

  • Chateau d’Or et de Gueules ‘Les Cimels’ Red Organic

    Chateau d’Or et de Gueules ‘Les Cimels’ Red Organic

    Super new 2018 vintage which is certified organic. It is a wonderfully consistent wine which also manages to take on the character of the vintage vagaries. Consistently a best selller, consistently recommended in the Press. So, here you have an even deeper colour than usual, and enough body to make it a real laster!

    ….and if you like your reds with “minerality”, go no further!

    Albarino was first brought to Galicia in Spain by French monks from Cluny along the fabled Santiago de Compostela route many centuries ago.
    Now it’s returned to France, and you can enjoy this lovely soft yet balanced version. No oak, not acidic, just creamy, easy texture. My mate Gill will love this one!

    Laurent Miquel Nord/Sud Viognier

    100% Viognier and all the rich, almost oily texture that goes with it. 30% of the blend was aged in oak for 3 months so what you get is a bit of extra body and structure but no obvious oaky flavours.

  • Anarkos Rosso di Puglia

    Anarkos Rosso di Puglia

    The label is attention-seeking, as is the bright red plastic cork (not my favourite closure, I must admit, but the wine insisted I buy it! The wine has attitude and is a provocative one, railing against the plight of the region (see their website). The region reminds me of the Languedoc in France – loads of rubbish wines but increasing numbers of fanatics making really top wines as they should be made. This was one of my favourite winery visits af the last few years. The wine is made from a blend of the local varieties Primitivo, Negro Amaro and Malvasia Nera and should be consumed in conspiratorial bars in the south of Italy with huge helpings of pasta.

    Previous vintages recommended; Recommended in The Daily Telegraph: “another one of Mark Hughes’ brilliant finds. Absolutely delicious blend of Primitivo, Negro Amaro and Malvasia. Lush and plush like velvet, also juicy, scented, intense, rich brimming with the smell of violets, deep purple plums and bitter cherries. Such a joy!
    Recommended by Oz Clarke as one of his 250 best wines of 2012: “an excellent example of how southern Italian reds are starting to express their own fabulous originality. It’s bulging with youth and it’s soft, yet tempered by a nice edgy bitterness.”
