FRANCE

France benefits from a range of locations and climates that are suitable for growing wines, resulting in a diverse range of varieties and styles. Emphasis remains as much on tradition as technology, with particular significance placed on the expression of terroir. The finest wine-producing regions are Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne and Rhône.

Other significant areas include Alsace, Beaujolais, Chablis, Jura, Loire, and south west France. A predominantly red wine-producing country, less than a quarter of all wine consumed in France is white.

Bottle 37.5cl £35.08

It takes 100 kilograms of grapes to produce just 10 litres of Vin de Paille meaning the wine is very limited. Flavours are rich and concentrated with a flavour spectrum from honey and...

Bottle 75cl £35.68

Case of 6 £214.08

TASTING NOTES

Notes of lime and orange blossoms abound alongside stony, nuanced mineral. There is a fullness here that is finely balanced by a graceful, delicate mint and sage freshness.  This Clos du Bourg Demi Sec treads like a tightrope walker between citrus acidity and the sweet florals of honeysuckle.  Complex and incredibly fine, this wine was made in minute quantities.  What...

Le Mont provides the perfect middle ground between Le Haut-Lieu and Clos du Bourg in this vintage. Complex, piercing and also remarkably open. This doesn’t have the same level of hidden complexity as the Haut-Lieu but was probably the dry wine of the tasting. Incredibly vivid and pure, pithy citrus and crunchy green apple are all interwoven with a touch...
