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 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...

TASTING NOTES

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...

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...

TASTING NOTES

What a delight! This seductive wine reveals a nose vibrant with citrus fruit and generous hints of confit pear and sweet toasted almonds unique to Chenin Blanc. On the palate there is a beautifully rich texture with complex and lingering flavours of spices and finally giving way to créme brûlée and bitter almond.

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.
