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

An alluring yellow amber hue hints at the delights that this wine has to offer. Before the glass even approaches one’s nose, a swathe of grapefruit pith and pure, clean honey introduce themselves. Nuanced layers emerge with aeration including ripe peach, spun sugar, nectarine, juicy pear and even a hint of mango. This is a wine that builds slowly but...

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

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....

Soft orchard fruits, white flowers and citrus peel create an attractive and comforting aroma alongside subtle mineral-inflected scents. The mousse is incredibly fine, giving a gentle, mouthfilling texture which holds the taut, pithy citrus and camomile flavours in check. There is a wonderful fleshy quality which is balanced by soft toasty notes and a remarkable freshness which lasts long onto...

TASTING NOTES

Hedonism in a glass. This is a superb effort which combines dried tropical fruit aromas with sweet spice. There is such complexity here with a botrytis spice, and stewed rhubarb. The intense sweetness is complemented by a well-integrated acidity and enormous concentration. This wine will, quite possibly, live for 40+ years. A herculean effort.

Crafted only in very tiny quantities and when conditions allow from top quality berries affected by noble rot. Le Mont’s quintessential grace and poise is in abundance here. Deep, complex and elegantly fresh with a core of wild honeysuckle, orange blossom and softly caramelised apple and pear. The texture is full and complete; a sinewy, smoky quality combines with richness...

TASTING NOTES

This 100% Cabernet Franc displays refreshing dark raspberry notes with hints of liquorice and violets. On the palate it is medium bodied, pure dark red fruit with a firm tannic structure and refreshing acidity. This wine needs some time in the bottle to truly show its potential. Drink 2016-2025.

TASTING NOTES

A blend of 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 70% Cabernet Franc. Incredibly vibrant nose of violets, raspberries and blueberries. The palate is full of juicy ripe blackberries that are pure, clean and concentrated. The texture is silky smooth thanks to some very fine tannins and the fruit lingers on the lengthy finish. This is a wine of elegance and finesse, enjoy.
