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.

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.

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.

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

A sublime nectar, it is the profound depth and intensity rather than the obvious sweetness of Cuvée Constance that makes it most captivating. The texture is full and complete; a sinewy, smoky quality combines with richness from the botrytis, playing perfect harmony to effortless, crisp, spiced citrus notes. The lacy sweetness is replete with razor-like acidity, exquisitely pure concentration and...
