  • Chateau Lamothe-Vincent Bordeaux Superieur “Libertae” No added Sulphur

    With 75% rich, supple, smooth Merlot backed-up by (frankly rare) Malbec this sulphur-free addition to The Lamothe-Vinvent range  yet again breaks new ground.

    First of all it’s just simply a really good claret! But the work needed to allow a fine wine to show its best without the addition of any SO2 at all is a testament to the skills of the winemaker and the philosophy whch runs through the Chateau from top to bottom.

  • Plein la Vue Organic Sauvignon Blanc by Jeff Carrel – sorry OOS

    I selected this wine first and foremost because it’s a lovely mouth-filling Sauvignon Blanc, fat and fruity -no edge to it. A happy extra is that it’s a slight 12.5% alcohol and it’s certified organic. What’s not to like?

  • La Bette Cotes du Roussillon Villages Red by Jeff Carrel

    Big, deep colour, good grip due in part to 65% Syrah in the blend but also to Jeff’s preferred style of reds which retain those firm tannins and acidity making them great food wines.

  • Morillon Blanc by Jeff Carrel

    A trusted old friend….rich, fat, with just a hint of oak….I put this in the category of White Burgundy look-alikes. Not the lean Chablis style, but the richer Macon end of Burgundy. Grapes with a touch of botrytis (noble rot) make this a soft, satisfying white.

  • Château d’Or et de Gueules “Mon fut c’est du poulet?”

    Diane’s husband, Matthieu, demonstrates both his fine winemaking skills as well as his sense of humour with this wine. Are you sitting comfortably? Then I’ll begin;
    Matthieu devised a special cuvee, just one barrel, to mark the birth of his baby five years ago. Whist he was away on business one day, Diane unwittingly blended the barrel together with others destined to be the Trassegum Red final blend.
    “Your’e kidding me?!!” said Matthieu on learning his barrel was gone. Translated from “Mon cul, c’est du poulet?” in French. In order not to offend sensitivities he replaced the vulgar “cul” (arse) with “fut” (barrel), and so the fith vintage of this birthday wine is Matthieu’s finest so far in his opinion. Lovely sort, round, fleshy Syrah with easy oak undertones.

  • A Vue de Nez (no added sulphur) by Jeff Carrel Organic Red

    Firstly – organic and with no added sulphur. Secondly – it’s a lovely smooth and fruity expression of grassy Cabernet Franc with a dollop of Syrah to beef it up. Also it has a clutch of Gold Medals and 90/100 from American Wine Guru Robert Parker.

  • Laurent Miquel Nord/Sud Viognier

    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.

  • Domaine de Cray Cremant de Loire

    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 fizz. Made by the “Champagne” method with two years’ aging on the lees before disgorging.

  • Pinot Noir by Jeff Carrel

    Light colour as you’d expect from cool climate Pinot Noir. Grown in the south of France, yes, but in high altitude vineyards which are cool. Developed by Jeff with one of his best mates from Burgundy to produce a light burgundy-style red.
