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

A notch up in intensity from its Haut-Lieu sibling; pink grapefruit and bergamot vie for attention here.  This Clos du Bourg Moelleux is so complex and thrilling, it envelopes the senses in orange blossom, patisserie, melon and spice.  If it weren’t for the fantastic acidity, the concentration here would be almost liqueur-esque in depth, but that nervy energy comes through...

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...

TASTING NOTES

This is an almost nostalgic wine that hints at childhood memories of baked apple, honeyed raisin, pear drop and fresh apple sauce.  Nuanced layers emerge with grapefruit pith and juicy conference pear alongside spun sugar, nectarine, and white peach.  Its soaring crest of acidity cleanses all the plump sugared fruit and marries beautifully with the accents of spicy botrytised apricot....

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. ...

A magical cuvée from this mythical vineyard. Anyone who has stood in the Clos du Bourg can’t fail to be enchanted.  This Clos du Bourg 1ere Trie is a stunning creation which combines dried tropical fruit aromas with sweet spice. There is such complexity here with botrytis spice, exotic fruit and stewed rhubarb providing a fullness that is somehow piercingly...

Crafted only in very tiny quantities (just 3000 bottles in 2016) and when conditions allow from top quality berries affected by noble rot. Le Mont’s quintessential flinty grace and poise is in abundance here. Sweet, complex and elegantly fresh; there is a core of wild jasmine, honeysuckle, orange blossom rounded by softly caramelised apple and pear.   The texture is full...

TASTING NOTES

The fourth year this decade that Constance has been produced. The wine is a blend of 50% botytised fruit from Le Clos du Bourg, Le Mont and a tiny fraction from the outskirts of Le Haut Lieu. Polished, straw-gold appearance. Very restrained, with barely noticeable sweetness on the nose. Rich on entry; lush, with very good weight, texture and the...

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.
