  • 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.

  • Domaine d’Ansignan “Les Grenadines” by Jeff Carrel

    Never say never…I wasn’t convinced by the pre-taste description, but why worry? If Jeff makes it chances are it’ll be a cracker. Guess what? I loved it.

    It’s somewhere between a light red (Beaujolais Nouveau) and a Rose. Drink it nicely chilled and enjoy the cherry, redcurrant, strawberry flavours resulting from the blend of Grenache / Maccabeu / Carignan / Syrah / Pellut.  Just perfect for the summer.

    Les Grenadines comes from the fact that they are planting pomegranate trees next to the vineyard.
