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

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.

TASTING NOTES

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...

Appealing ripe fruit on the nose. A deep purple red with dark ripe fruit and spice flavours rich, full and mouth filling. Good weight and texture and a lift of acidity on the finish.

A magical cuvée from this mythical vineyard.

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.
