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.

The Southern French...

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.

2016 Sancerre, Fernand Girard

Bottle 75cl £15.95

BUY
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...

Image of wine Vouvray Le Mont Demi-Sec
BUY
TASTING NOTES

A striking, crystalline nose evolves from floral, to spice to orange peel and then white pepper. 2016 really seems to be a demi-sec vintage in particular, as this Le Mont demonstrates.  Whilst there is sweetness, the wine is exceptionally pure and light on its feet. An exquisite juxtaposition between white orchard fruit and a minerally citrus frame; the fine vinous...

BUY
TASTING NOTES

Thrilling and bright in its nervy youthfulness; orange peel is to the fore on this elegantly scented Moelleux – the apogee of the Huet style.  Bright, crunchy honeydew melon is accompanied by exotic notes of mango and more subtle jasmine scents.  There is a delightful soft and sweet lemon meringue depth here too lifted by a superb mineral accent on...

The elegant aroma of summer berries, strawberries and rhubarb is held in place and balanced by sophisticated oak. On the palate there is excellent depth; pure, sweet red fruit and spiced notes. The tannins provide precision and grip alongside a backbone of vibrant acidity.

The Haut Lieu Sec opens with inviting aromas of yellow pear-skin, hints of preserved lemon and green herbs, with a white flower fragrance.
