Trisole Grillo di Sicilia
I am really enjoying the fresh, tropical fruity, citrus flavours of this Sicilian white varietal. Grapefruit was my first note, but soft not sharp, then it ends with a nice, almost bitter finish. A lovely new addition to our range and only 12.5% ABVOther Single Varietal WhiteCrisp & Refreshing WhitesItaly2022750 ml11%-12.5%Organic

Chateau Lamothe-Vincent Bordeaux Reserve Sauvignon Blanc
Too soon for any medals yet, but only a matter of time!
Fabien & Christophe’s super white was absolutely stunning when we first tasted their 2006 and now the 2022 has arrived it is also a stunner, possibly even better! year after year stunning consistency. 90% crisp, zingy gooseberry Sauvignon Blanc with a ‘lichette’ of Semillon to round it off. Aging on the lees for around three months adds an extra dimension. I really hope you will enjoy this.Sauvignon BlancCrisp & Refreshing WhitesFrance2022750 ml11%-12.5%VeganOrganic
Château Lamothe-Vincent Bordeaux Reserve Merlot
Gold Medals at Brussels and Gilbert & Gaillard.
The classic Bordeaux blend, of course, is Cabernet/Merlot, and here we have a classic indeed. Merlot dominated, soft but very well-structured, ripe fruit.MerlotUnoaked RedsFrance2019750 ml13-13.5%VeganOrganic
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!Red BlendsOakey RedsItaly2022750 ml14%+Organic

Chateau d’Or et de Gueules ‘Les Cimels’ Rose Organic
The new 2022 vintage is just in and just as good as ever. Worth the wait, I’d say….A blend of Cinsault and Mourvedre this is as close to a classic Provence Rose as you can get without actually coming from Provence. Well, the estate is just over the border.
Organic, vegan, rich, full, soft, fresh…..
. 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.Light & FruityFrance2022750 ml11%-12.5%VeganOrganic
Chateau Lamothe-Vincent Heritage White
Gold medals at Lyon and Los Angeles (also Best in Class)
Now we have the full range of Lamothe-Vincent’s great Bordeaux wines. This is an unusual blend of sauvignon Gris and Sauvignon Blanc which has been aged in barrels for a brief time and the resultant wine is full and rich but not obviously oaky. Lovely food wine, but also great on its own. This new 2021 vintage is just fantastic!Sauvignon BlancOakey WhitesFrance2021750 ml11%-12.5%VeganOrganic
Chateau Lamothe-Vincent Bordeaux Superieur Heritage Red
Gold Medal at Bordeaux
The classic Bordeaux blend, of course, is Cabernet/Merlot, and here we have a classic indeed, but with 80% Merlot. Very St-Emilion-esque! Multiple-Gold-Medal winner, this “Heritage” cuvee has been aged in French oak barrels for 12 months and is quite simply as typical a claret as you could wish for at a very affordable price.MerlotBig & Robust RedsFrance2019750 ml14%+VeganOrganic
La Tire Fitou by Jeff Carrel
Why La Tire?
Because « La Tire » is French slang for “the car”, and obviously the 2CV is symbolic of French automobiles and was first launched in 1948, the same year the AOP Fitou appellation came into existence. Drive my good man!
60% 50 year-old Carignan vines / 40% Syrah
Jeff’s notes are; “Intense notes of blueberries, blackberries, pepper, liquid violets and scrubland, with delicate tannins and a nice crisp acidity. Plenty of freshness and tension.”Red BlendsRich WhitesFrance2022750 ml14%+Organic

Château d’Or et de Gueules ‘Trassegum’ White organic
This wine was the very first one we had recommended in the national press when we started the business back in 2006.
The new 2021 vintage is arguably even better, I love it. Think creamy rich white Cotes du Rhone. Three months in barrel just to soften it out a bit and give a rich, soft nicely balanced white wine that will go really well with your Sunday roast.
Recommended by Jancis Robinson: “Lots of interest here.”
Previous vintages RECOMMENDED IN THE OBSERVER. The 2009 vintage displays a beautiful balance and is as good a white from the south of France as you will see anywhere. 50% of the blend is barrel-fermented Roussanne; the rest is unoaked Grenache Blanc and Rolle. It is a rich wine with an excellent balance of oak and will be perfect with your Sunday roast.White BlendsOakey WhitesFrance2021750 ml13-13.5%Organic
