LOIRE

The Loire valley is perhaps France's most overlooked wine producing region. It is an extremely large and diverse area with 87 appellations. It is the largest white wine region in France and the second largest region for sparkling wine. The climate is cool, producing delicate, crisp wines, often with high acidity. Its expansiveness and diversity result in a variety of different wine styles, from the crisp, mineral Sancerres and Muscadets to the powerful, red Chinons and the sweet Coteaux du Layon wines, all of which deserve more attention than they currently receive in the international wine market.

TASTING NOTES

As JB said when we tasted together, “No comment, it is great”.  Many a true word said in jest.  The Le Mont Moelleux is exceptional and has a long life to come.  Rich texture leads in to a massive wave of green apple and spice.  It is supported by minerality, freshness and smokey, savoury inflections.  This is a wine with...

Austere at first showing a wine that requires patience.  Lemon zest, white flower and green apple wrapped around a steel core.  After a few minutes in the glass it starts to uncoil.  Incredible freshness and restrained power.Armit Wines

TASTING NOTES

Wow, this wine is incredible.  When tasting so many wines it is rare that one can give you goosebumps.  At first you are met with a smokey, powerful and dense wine that takes a few minutes to unwind.  As it opens in the glass you are met with a melange of tarte tatin, spice, vanilla, caramelised grapefruit and barley sugar. ...

TASTING NOTES

An incredibly full aroma, this fantastically scented demi-sec has soft notes of summer garden and citrus fruit salad. White peach, jasmine and lemon peel give the wine a stunning delicacy coupled by an amazing vibrancy as the sugars dance like a ballerina on the tongue.  Impeccable balance between fondant fancy vanilla notes and a mineral laciness that lingers on and...

winemaking regions stretch right across the Southern coast of France. Provence is perhaps the warmest wine region in France and produces mainly rosé and red wine. Provence wine has often been compared with the wines of Southern Rhône, as they share both grapes and, to some degree, style and climate.

The Languedoc region is primarily red wine territory, although some rosé is produced, as well as increasing amounts of attractive whites. The area was transformed by the Vin de Pays classification of 1979, permitting the cultivation of new grape varieties and the opportunity to rival the New World crusaders with varietal labelling.
