  • Plaimont Sauvignon Blanc IGP Côtes de Gascogne — x 1

    The colour is light and bright. The nose is intense and complex with grapefruit and lychee aromas. The mouth is rich, fresh and full- flavoured, with lovely peachy and gooseberry aftertaste. Ideal as a partner for seafood.

  • Plaimont Cuvée Du Roy IGP Côtes de Gascogne Sec — x 1

    Honest and unpretentious wine with a pleasantly harmonized crisp aroma and finish. Great as a party wine or as an aperitif to a wide range of dishes.

  • Bistrot Chic Entre Deux Mers — x 1

    Grown between the Dordogne and the Garonne, two tidal rivers in the south-west of France, Bistro Chic Entre Deux Mers is a fantastic French wine, representing outstanding value. The wine is a brilliant pale yellow, sporting a nose rich in grapefruit and boxwood. The palate is rich with white peach and lime, with a breadth of citrus being showcased on the finish.

    An ideal match for grilled fish and salads.

  • Plaimont Cuvée du Roy IGP Côtes de Gascogne Rouge — x 1

    Very well made Vin De Pays, soft tannins with a dry finish and full juicy fruit flavour. An easy drinking red, great on its own or a good match for most meat dishes and mild cheeses.

  • Château Breillan Haut-Médoc — x 1

    Situated in Blanquefort on the outskirts of Bordeaux, Château Breillan, which dates back to the 14th centruy, was completely rebuilt in the early 20th century in the neo-Gothic style.  Today, the vines are tended by a viticultural college and consequently has the advantage of major resources.

    The very atypical mix of grape varieties, in which Merlot predominates, yields a very generous, well-structured wine wrapped in smooth, lingering extract.

    Clad in a beautiful ruby red with deeppurple hints, this 2016 offers an intense, fresh bouquet with a hint of spice, red fruits and cherry.  Mouthfilling, chewy tannins on the palate, which lingers to a balanced, superbly unctuous finish.

    A great vintage.

  • Ventoux Le Vin de Leonard, Gonnet — x 1

    Made by the Gonnet family who has a long and rich history of winemaking in the region and produces refined and aromatic wines.

    Grapes are carefully selected from their beautiful vineyard located at the foot of the Mont Ventoux, just to the south-east of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Fresh and well balanced with a stunning explosion of ripe red berry fruits. Round on the palate with soft tannins and a peppery finish.

  • Mâcon-Villages, Château du Charnay AOP — x 1

    Château du Charnay is located in the heart of Val Lamartinien in the South of Burgundy, in the village of Sologny, between Mâcon and Cluny.  The 3 hectares 55 of Chardonnay, surrounding the property, produce this Mâcon-Villages.  The hillside vines, facing East/South East, draw their fruity and mineral notes from clay-limestone soils.

    This unoaked, dry white wine has a bouquet of citrus, exotic fruit and white flowers, demonstrating the potential of Chardonnay for finesse and complexity.

     

  • Picpoul de Pinet, Emma M. Louise — x 1

    This classic, dry Picpoul de Pinet is fresh, sharp and fruit driven.  Citrus notes of lemon and lemongrass abound and the finish is marked by a minerality with iodine sensation.

     

  • Icare Chardonnay, Côtes de Thongue — x 1

    Alexander discovered his passion for wine in the family vineyard in the 90’s. Willing to go further, he created a company dedicated to Languedoc wines. As a real pioneer and visionary man, Alexander Krossa combines technical and commercial know-how to the service of partner winegrowers. His philosophy: being a professional of foreign customer relationship in controlling technical process, selection and blends with his partners. Located in the heart of the widest vineyard in the world, La cave d’Alignan combines tradition and modernity, first throughout its various terroirs but also with its parcel selection and wine making process. Under Mediterranean climate, the terroir beneficiates of a strong wind coming from the North. This dry wind is a real protection for the vines. Moreover, they take advantage of a favourable exposure and this enables a slow grape maturity.

    Grapes come from high maturity plots. Direct pressing on arrival at the cellar and cold settling of the must. Once the alcoholic fermentation has started, the must is transferred into French oak barrels. Daily stirring of the lees and ageing during approximately 12 months.

     

  • Château Tour Bel Air, Montagne Saint Emilion — x 1

    This St Emilion, deep ruby in colour displays fruity cherry notes and hints of menthol and liquorice. It has a fantastic full and long finish.

    ‘… this has the clovey pomander spice and broad, rich red fruit so typical of a St Émilion satellite merlot, there’s also a crisp edge and a bit of uplift. Very enjoyable drinking.

    Victoria Moore, The Telegraph, 21st October, 2017

  • Fleurie Presidente Marguerite Subtil, Cave de Fleurie — x 1

    This is a light Fleurie with fruity strawberries and raspberries on the palate with a hint of violet and spice on the finish. It has a light body and smooth tannins, making an extremely approachable red wine.

  • Guillaume Aurele Pinot Noir — x 1

    Deep morello cherry aromas with hints of violet. A rounded mouthfeel with lots of fruit flavours on the palate. Balanced tannins with a good finish.
