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.

TASTING NOTES

The Haut Lieu Sec opens with inviting aromas of yellow pear-skin, hints of preserved lemon and green herbs, with a white flower fragrance. This cool freshness follows onto the palate, giving way to yellow plum and crunchy green apple alongside slate and chalk elements. A bright, crisp and very elegant Haut Lieu Sec.

TASTING NOTES

As with the dry wines Le Mont seems a little more open and opulent than the Clos du Bourg. The nose has more expression and lift with delicate ginger notes and riper pear and quince. The palate is round and textured with a palpable sweetness but great grip and drive. Mineral and precise this is a fantastic example of what...

BUY
TASTING NOTES

The classic Le Mont mineral aromas are complemented by the vintage’s hallmark generous honeysuckle notes. The palate has a chalky, crisp minerality which finishes with a very appealing hint of ripeness. This wine is all about tension and the length is really quite special. A couple of years will no doubt be very beneficial but this is so attractive now.

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...
