  • 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.

  • Pinot Noir by Jeff Carrel

    Light colour as you’d expect from cool climate Pinot Noir. Grown in the south of France, yes, but in high altitude vineyards which are cool. Developed by Jeff with one of his best mates from Burgundy to produce a light burgundy-style red.
