  • Rasteau 2017, Domaine La Soumade, Frédéric Roméro, 14.5% vol, 75cl

    Rasteau 2017, Domaine La Soumade, Frédéric Roméro, 14.5% vol, 75cl

    RR01

    André Roméro is a most characterful and talented grower. He founded Domaine la Soumade in 1979 and was joined by his son Frédéric in 1996 on completion of his oenology studies. Today the estate covers 26 hectares, including a new plot of 2.5 hectares of the finest land in Rasteau – pure ‘Argile bleue’ with 60 year old vines.

     

    Whilst Frédéric has assumed responsibility for most of the day to day work on the domaine, André is still actively involved, that is when he is not following the fortunes of F.C. Barcelona!

     

    Domaine la Soumade practices  “agriculture raisonée” (sustainable winemaking) in all of  their vineyards, only treating the vines where absolutely necessary.

     

    They use organic compost which is only applied when soil deficiencies are revealed, following analysis of the soil and vine vegetation. When climatic conditions dictate they use organically permitted treatments (sulphur and copper) to protect the vines from mildew and oidium.

     

    The Domaine la Soumade Rasteau is  80% Grenache Noir, 10% Syrah,  and 10% Mourvèdre from low yielding (38 hl per ha) vines varying in age from 10 – 30 years.

     

    The grapes are harvested by hand with the best grapes selected on a sorting table in the vineyard.

     

    Traditional winemaking with punching down of the skin cap and a regular pumping over of juice in open stainless steel tanks. Maceration of the skins lasts between 14 and 18 days with a temperature controlled fermentation.

    Sauternes “Gold Reserve” 1998, Château Filhot, 13.5%vol, 75cl

    BB04

    A mature wine from the renowned Sauternes property of Château Filhot.

     

    “Gold Reserve” 1998 is a light and elegant style. Not the sweetest of Sauternes but full of dried fruit and marmalade flavours. It is well suited as an aperitif or to partner rich savoury dishes such as rich pâtés, or cheeses (especially Roquefort). If you want to use it as a dessert wine choose a light, fruit dish.

  • Moulin-à-Vent 2018, Domaine de L’Iris, Thierry Janin, 13.5% vol, 75cl

    Moulin-à-Vent 2018, Domaine de L’Iris, Thierry Janin, 13.5% vol, 75cl

    BJ01

    A super property beautifully situated just below Le Château du Moulin-à-Vent with very fine terroir. Thierry Janin is a true “vigneron”! He owns 1 hectare and rents and works a further 6 hectares on a metayage basis – receiving a proportion of the production.

     

    Thierry adheres to organic principles in the vineyards. In most years the grapes are whole bunch fermented. Minimal doses of SO2 are usually added during fermentation and just before bottling. The wine is very lightly filtered.

     

    The Moulin-à-Vent comes from 45 – 55 year old vines and is aged in old foudres.

  • Petit Chablis 2018, Gilles et Nathalie Fèvre 12% vol, 75cl

    Petit Chablis 2018, Gilles et Nathalie Fèvre 12% vol, 75cl

    WB17

    Gilles and Nathalie Fèvre met at university where they both qualified as oenologists. Gilles’ great grandfather began growing grapes and making wine in and around the village of Fontenay-Près-Chablis over a hundred years ago.

     

    Today, they own 40 hectares of vines – all planted on Kimmeridgian limestone – throughout the region. The vines are mainly aged between 25 and 35 years although some date back to when Gilles’s greatgrandfather ran the domaine.

     

    Gilles is in charge of viticulture. The finest possible grapes are grown with a fastidious, environmentally conscious approach to quality, lower yields and scrupulous selection. Nathalie oversees winemaking, where small, temperature controlled stainless steel tanks are used to vinify each parcel separately.

     

    The resulting wines are beautiful expressions of classic, fine, concentrated, pure, steely, minerally Chablis.

  • Pinot Gris 2018, Domaine Bruno Sorg, Eguisheim, 12.8% vol, 75cl

    Pinot Gris 2018, Domaine Bruno Sorg, Eguisheim, 12.8% vol, 75cl

    AL03

    This tiny domaine is the source of some of the finest, richest and most concentrated wines in Alsace.

     

    Domaine Bruno Sorg was created in 1965 by Renée and Bruno Sorg in Ingersheim, the village where Renée was born. In 1972, they bought a house with outbuildings in Eguisheim, the village where Bruno was born, and where the business is located today.

     

    In 2004 François, Bruno’s son, built a temperature controlled winery just outside the village. François says he now has time to think instead of climbing up and down ladders and stairs.

     

    Their decision to follow the principles of sustainable farming for the vineyards enables the coexistence of natural, and sometimes rare, species of fauna and flora alongside the vines.

     

    The Pinot Gris is dry and rich with the spice and texture so typical of the variety. A backbone of firm acidity gives the wine a lovely structure and balance and prevents it from being overblown.

    Pinot Noir 2018, Domaine Bruno Sorg, Eguisheim, 12.5% vol, 75cl

    AL01

    This tiny domaine is the source of some of the finest, richest and most concentrated wines in Alsace and their Pinot Noir is also one of the very best in the region.

     

    Domaine Bruno Sorg was created in 1965 by Renée and Bruno Sorg in Ingersheim, the village where Renée was born.

     

    In 1972, they bought a house with outbuildings in Eguisheim, the village where Bruno was born, and where the business is located today.

     

    In 2004 François, Bruno’s son, built a temperature controlled winery just outside the village. François says he now has time to think instead of climbing up and down ladders and stairs.

     

    Their decision to follow the principles of sustainable farming for the vineyards enables the coexistence of natural, and sometimes rare, species of fauna and flora alongside the vines.

     

    Low yielding, hand picked fruit and careful vinification in temperature controlled conditions gives an elegant and restrained Pinot Noir. The colour is bright and clear with a nose filled with summer berries, cherries and spicy aromas. The palate is light with a beautifully balanced style – fruit, refreshing acidity and very soft tannins.

  • Fleurie “Vieille Vignes” 2017, Domaine de la Madone, 14.5% vol, 75cl

    Fleurie “Vieille Vignes” 2017, Domaine de la Madone, 14.5% vol, 75cl

    BJ09

    This first class Domaine is run by the Després family. It is located at the top of the renowned hill of “La Madone”, the granitic hill immediately above the village of Fleurie where most of the Domaine’s 19 hectares of are located. This hillside is often considered to have the best growing conditions for wine in the area.

     

    Arnaud has taken over the work started by his father Jean-Marc, and the quality of recent vintages are testament to his hard work and skill both in the vineyards and the winery.

     

    The Vieille Vignes is from 80 year old vines and has more depth and richness than most Fleurie whilst retaining a lovely elegant lift.

     

    The wine has a very deep purple appearance with a nose full of ripe red fruit aromas – raspberry and strawberry with a hint of spice. The palate is full, with red fruit flavours layered over a warming spice and mineral core – very impressive.
