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

A 100% Grolleau blend. The nose is nicely aromatic of cherry, blackberry, violets and a hint of heather. Medium bodied with intense flavours of crushed red cherries and blackberries coat the palate with a touch of smoke in the background. The finish is long with refreshing acidity and a currant leafy complexity.

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...

TASTING NOTES

The colour itself is immediately appealing. Notes of melon and pretty floral blossoms abound. Broad, encompassing and ripe, this is indulgent yet never heavy. A delicious contradiction of buttery yet light mouthfeel flows into flavours of softly nuanced tangerine as well as apple and pear. A long lingering finish rounds off this utterly moreish wine.

TASTING NOTES

A striking, crystalline nose reminiscent of Riesling promises something really quite special. The uber-complex aroma evolves from floral to spice to orange peel. This wine has real ‘wow’ factor – the vintage seems to really hit its stride at demi-sec level. This is a wine of impeccable balance between honeyed richness and purity of fruit. Whilst there is sweetness, the...

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...

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...

TASTING NOTES

The nose here is exceedingly decadent with passionfruit and ripe mango. Lush, concentrated and viscous but with a tempering acidic backbone, this is a truly exciting wine. The Haut Lieu style means that this exceptionally smooth wine will be very hard to resist in its youth.
