  • Chateau d’Or et de Gueules “AB” (A Boire) Red Organic

    New vintage just in. Diane and Mathieu’s range of estate wines is now wholly organic. Fresh and fruity with good structure. Do I detect a whiff of strawberries?

  • Casabel Lisboa Portuguese Red

    Lovely soft red with vibrant cherry-like fruit. A great example of  just how much fun Portuguese wines can be.

    This is a soft, yet well-structured, unoaked red from the Lisbon Region. If the Cerejeiras is defined by easy fruit, this has a bit more oomph, so will take richer food. It has lovely clean fruit character.

  • Passole Nero d’Avola/Merlot di Sicilia,

    This is a really successful blend of Nero d’Avola and Merlot bringing out the best of both varietals in a wine that is better than the sum of its two parts. The lovely rich but slightly light NdA bulked up a bit by rich and soft Merlot.  It undergoes a slight “Ripasso” treatment. “Da uve leggermente appassite” as they say. This gives it extra oomph. Good depth, nice and silky.

  • Kinisia Merlot/Nero d’Avola di Sicilia

    This is a really successful blend of Nero d’Avola and Merlot bringing out the best of both varietals in a wine that is better than the sum of its two parts. The lovely rich but slighly light NdA bulked up by rich and soft Merlot.  This differs from the Passole in that it is predominantly Merlot backed up by NdA rather than the other way round. Then it spends eight months in oak barrels giving it a lovely, spicey and elegant texture. I’m getting blackcurrants and lots of chocolate!

  • Peninsula de Lisboa Portuguese Red

    Step-by-step we increase the intensity and complexity from the Lisbon Region. This time a blend of Castelão (50%) and Aragonez (50%) which is aged for six months in oak barrels. There’s a beautiful clean structure about this wine (maybe the absence of the rustic Touriga?). Harmonious and spicy. Yum.

  • Abbotts & Delaunay Minervois

    A blend of Carignan and Syrah which really showcases one of the Languedoc’s fine range of regional appellations. 40% of the handpicked grapes are aged in oak following fermentation. The result is a fat, structured red but it’s not “in your face” it’s really very nicely balanced.

  • Quinta de San Francisco Portuguese Red

    Single Estate red from the Obidos region. Castelão (60%), Aragonez (20%),Touriga Nacional (20%) are aged for 12 months in French and American oak barrels. This was my pick of the family’s three estate wines. Maybe it’s the Touriga Nacional which gives it an almost violet fruit over and above the soft, oakiness. It has won Gold at four separate competitions this year.

  • Abbotts & Delaunay Cotes du Roussillon

    A blend of Syrah and Grenache with a slug of “whole bunch” Carignan which once again showcases one of the Languedoc’s fine range of regional appellations. 40% of the handpicked grapes are aged in oak following fermentation. The result is a fat, structured red but it’s not “in your face” it’s really very nicely balanced.

  • Château d’Or et de Gueules “Parle a mon fût” Rosé

    Following the runaway success of Mathieu’s Syrah, they have introduced a pink and here it is. It’s a light rosé made from a blend of Syrah and Grenache. Very, very low sulphur levels mean the colour is not as light as some, but it’s lovely and fruity, goes great with tapas and a mere 12% alc. What’s not to like?

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

    Super new 2021 vintage which is certified organic and vegan. 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!

  • Mas du Petit Nysse, Ventoux Red

    A stylish property in the Rhone Valley. Full of spicey southern Rhone flavours and now with a bit of bottle age it is smooth and satisfying.

  • La Remontada by Jeff Carrel

    La Remontada – The Comeback. Named in honour of the Champions League’s greatest comeback when Barcelona beat PSG 6-1 to win 6-5 on aggregate back in 2017. And we welcome back this wine under its new name. Haven’t had it for a few years but it’s made like an Italian Ripasso (see our beauty from Brunelli). It’s a declassified (because the method is not recognised – Jeff again) Cotes du Roussillon and it’s very, very lovely! It has that lovely schistous (look it up) character typical of the Roussillon wines but is super-silky-smooth because of the extra maceration of skins. Drink, sip, enjoy.
