  • Les Darons by Jeff Carrel

    Les Darons by Jeff Carrel

    Big, soft red, yet good acidity makes this a great food wine as well as one to drink on its own. A great example of southern french red wine, bursting with peppery tannins and earthy fruit.

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

    New to Diane and Mathieu’s range showcasing their now wholly organic estate. Fresh and fruity with good structure. Do I detect a whiff of strawberries?

  • Anarkos Rosso di Puglia – back in stock!

    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.”

  • 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!

  • Casabel 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.

  • Villa des Anges Reserve Red

    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!

    Jeff says; “La bouche est élancée, tendue par une fine acidité inflexible, mais enrobée par une matière ronde, veloutée, charmeuse. L’aromatique mêle la crème de mûre aux épices grillées et la vanille.” and who am I to argue?

  • Château Lamothe-Vincent Bordeaux “Intense” Merlot

    The classic Bordeaux blend, of course, is Cabernet/Merlot, and here we have a classic indeed. However, it’s Merlot dominated but with a rare 30% Cabernet Franc. Rich and very well-structured fruit. Gold Medal winner in Lyon……and four other such competitions!
    Drink now to 2025.

  • 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.

  • Dolcetto delle Langhe La Fusina

    Another top find from a hunting mission at Vinitaly; having found my favourite Barolo, I then tasted all their other wines and no surprise they we all lovely! Another single vineyard beauty from the Abbona family. I have long enjoyed the Dolcetto grape variety for its cherry-like flavours and freshness, quite a contrast to Barolo. No lengthy aging, no oak aging just vibrant fruit but still with grip.

  • NEW – Domaine des Nymphes Cotes du Rhone Villages Red

    A new find from a stylish property in the Rhone Valley. I just love the voluptuous, fleshy, grapiness of this predominantly Grenache blend. The Syrah gives it a grip which ensures it’s also a great food wine. Spicy and soft lingering flavours……

  • 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.
