  • 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!

  • Domaine de Cray Touraine Rose

    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 smart pink. New in.

  • Chateau d’Or et de Gueules ‘Les Cimels’ Rose Organic OOS until new vintage next year

    The new 2019 vintage is as light as a provence Rose. 40% Cinsault, 40% Mourvedre and 20% Grenache. Fermented straight from the press, no extra skin contact!
    Previous vintages all won accolades;

    Best Roses 2016 – Sunday Express.
    “With a pale salmon pink colour this attractive rose is bright and zippy but also has some warm, savoury spiciness. There’s a lively twist to it and it would make a fine partner for food.” Sunday Express
    “Irresistible. Pink Summer classic.” – SundayTimes
    Recommended previously also in The Sunday Times as a “party wine that won’t give you a headache.” They can’t all be wrong, can they’ The colour is so lovely I could happily just look at it let alone drink it. Forget the old, sweet unfashionable rosés of the past; this is a dry, refreshing blend of predominantly Grenache, with Syrah and Mourvèdre which has no oak aging. Deliciously thirst-quenching, strawberry fruit flavours. You will not want to put it down.

  • 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!

  • Villa des Anges Reserve – Sorry, temporarily OOS

    One of those wines which make you stop in your wine-tasting tracks. This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot (roughly a third of each) has been aged for 14 months in tanks with oak staves (!) before bottling. It’s enough to make you wonder whether or not you want to buy expensive claret again!

    The classic Bordeaux blend, of course, is Cabernet/Merlot, and here we have a classic indeed. Merlot dominated, soft but very well-structured fruit. A clutch of Gold Medals again!

    Laurent Miquel Solas Viognier

    I really do like Viognier and Laurent Miquel is demonstrating pretty effectively that it works as a grape at all price levels….Peaches and apricots???

  • 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!

  • 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.
