  • Miguel Merino Rioja Mazuelo de la Quinta Cruz

    Miguel explains how they are able to produce a wine from 100% of his lesser-used varietal. “Mazuelo is a fertile, vigorous plant which requires a long-cycle to reach complete ripening. It is also sensitive to many diseases. All these explains why Mazuelo is more adequate to the Mediterranean latitudes than to an Atlantic influenced land as Rioja Alta.
    Only the extraordinary characteristics of our Quinta Cruz vineyard allow us to make this wine in our town.”

  • I Ciacca “Nostalgia” Maturano White from Lazio

    I Ciacca “Nostalgia” Maturano

    Once in a while a wine insists you must buy it, here’s one. Rich, fat, mouth-filling, complex, creamy and the most beautiful colour you’ll ever see on a white wine. A truly top class Italian white.

    Ever heard of the “Maturano” grape variety? Nor I.

    The Di Ciacca family, a third-generation Scots-Italian clan, has been working to bring this indigenous, organically-grown grape variety back to life on the family’s estate in Picinisco, in Lazio.

    Italian consultant Alberto Antonini (named as one of the world’s top 5 winemakers by his peers) is guiding Di Ciacca’s Maturano mission.

  • Miguel Merino Rioja Reserva Vitola

    Differs from Miguel’s Reserva  in that it’s released slightly earlier, so a little less barrel age. No less stunning!
    Served up at Mugaritz in San Sebastian….taste why!

  • Champagne Marc Chauvet Brut Tradition

    Really! Honestly! Go no farther than Marc Chauvet for your Champagne. If you don’t want to spend £27.50, then try Blanquette de Limoux, but please don’t resort to cheap Champagne!

    To my mind Clotilde’s latest cuvee is her best yet! Soft, full, biscuity and long-lasting (in the palate, that is – I suspect the bottle will be polished off very quickly!)

    o 1/3 each Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier
    o 2/3 2015 vintage, 1/3 reserve wine
    o Dosage 12gms
    o Disgorged in after 3 years sur lattes

    Previous years’ accolades;

    Top 12 Fizzes for Christmas 2012 Daily Telegraph -“”Warm in style, nicely biscuity, with personality but one that will please a variety of tastes. Very box office.”

    A previous cuvee was also in Oz Clarke’s 250 Best Wines of 2011: “a fascinating wine,” and recommended by Victoria Moore in The Daily Telegraph November 2010: “delicious.”

    and recommended in The Guardian May 2010: “impressive.”

  • Champagne Marc Chauvet Brut Rose

    Stunning value for money – Jamie Goode, The Wine Anorak. Compares more than favourably to the biggest seller in the UK, Laurent Perrier Rose, but at about half the price, so go no further…

  • Brunelli Amarone Classico

    Luigi Brunelli’s Amarone Classico is a perfect example of this wine as defined by Cassiodorus: “drinkable purple of incredible smoothness”. Multiple Gold-medal winner, and for me, the best Amarone I tasted out of over 100 at the Vinitaly Trade Wine Fair in Verona.

  • Dunico Primitivo di Manduria

    Based on the huge popularity of “Fellone” I thought we should have a closer look at the Primitivo grape. Here’s one of four more, each with a distinct “terroir”. What’s the Italian for “terroir”, I wonder? This one is distinctive due to the sandy soil of the vineyards. Aged for over nine months in French oak it’s a whopping 16% alc but despite that, it’s the most complex of the range, maybe that’s what you expect for nearly £30 a bottle.

  • Barolo La Fusina

    Another top find from a hunting mission at Vinitaly; my favourite Barolo from over 120 tasted. This single vineyard beauty from the Abbona family is, like all Barolos, made from 100% Nebbiolo grapes, the king of Piedmont reds! Aged for 30 mnonths in french oak barrels and then a further 8 months in bottle before release. 2016 is one ot the top vintages of the past decade.

  • Miguel Merino Blanco

    Only 1188 bottles produced in 2016. Miguel Merino Blanco comes from two very special vineyards: La Loma (planted in 1946) and Mingortiz (planted in 1977). In
    La Loma vineyard (1,4 hectares at 534 metres of altitude), apart from the red Tempranillo and Garnacha vines we have a little
    treasure: a few vines of Garnacha Blanca that give us grapes of floral aromas, great complexity, body and deepness. Mingortiz is
    a 0,74 hectare slope facing East; only at the top end of the vineyard there are some Viura vines (0,20 ha). Up there, the soil is
    shallow, with great drainage and calcareous and clay composition. Its location, sun exposure and soil make this vineyard ideal to
    provide fresh and mineral Viura grapes.

    The grapes were harvested by hand early in the morning and then taken to the winery in small crates, where they were selected
    and pressed. After a 24h settling the must was racked into 4 500-litre barrels of French oak, where they went through the alcoholic
    fermentation.
