  • Sancerre Rouge 2016, Domaine Jean-Paul Balland, Bué, 13% vol, 75cl

    Sancerre Rouge 2016, Domaine Jean-Paul Balland, Bué, 13% vol, 75cl

    LVR03

    Jean-Paul Balland has handed over the running of the domaine to his two daughters – Burgundy-trained oenologist Isabelle makes the wines, and Elise runs an impressively efficient office. They have some 20 hectares with fine plots on Le Grand Chemarin and Le Chêne Marchand.

     

    The wines of Bué are full and rich in style, the Balland wines are a classic example from this village. It is said that Jean-Paul made the best wine in the village: we certainly don’t believe that Isabelle is doing any less well – lovely  wines.

     

    The Sancerre Rouge is 100% Pinot Noir from a small, 1 hectare, vineyard.

     

    The maceration and alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel, temperature regulated tanks. Daily pumping over  gives a delicate extraction of colour and flavour. The ageing and malolactic fermentation is in 600 litre barrels (demi-muids) for 1 year.

     

    A brilliant ruby-red appearance, clear and bright. On the nose the initial aromas are of violets and red fruits with a hint of smokiness. The palate is initially very dry with tannic attack that fades to a fruity character with hints of spice, pepper and smoke on the finish.

  • “Megaphone” 2017, Frédéric et Daniel Brunier, Ventoux, 14.5% vol, 75cl

    “Megaphone” 2017, Frédéric et Daniel Brunier, Ventoux, 14.5% vol, 75cl

    RR21

    Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe, established in 1891, has been run by the Brunier family for five generations. The estate’s vineyards are situated on the famous “Plateau de la Crau” the stony terrace where there is nothing but “galets roulés”, or rounded stones, as far as the eye can see. This special terroir imparts a highly distinctive minerality to the wines.

     

    With the Bruniers’ expansion into the satellite appellations, Daniel and Frédéric have produced some delightful fruit driven, crunchy wines.

     

    “Mégaphone”, Ventoux AOC, comes from a number of plots on the southern slopes of the Dentelles de Montmirail. The blend is 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah and the vines are 25 years old. Ageing is in foudres for 10 months.

  • Crémant d’Alsace Brut N.V., Domaine Bruno Sorg, 12.5% vol, 75cl

    Crémant d’Alsace Brut N.V., Domaine Bruno Sorg, 12.5% vol, 75cl

    SW07

    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 crémant is made from 50% Pinot Blanc & Pinot Auxerrois, 10% Pinot Gris and 40% Chardonnay and spends three years “sur latte” (on its lees) before being riddled and disgorged.

     

    The wine is pale in appearance with fine, tiny bubbles. The nose is complex, toasty with a hint of citrus and apples. The mousse is rich, with the palate fresh and fruity with a long, clean finish.

    Sancerre 2018, Jean-Paul Balland, Bué, 13.5% vol, 75cl

    LV15

    Jean-Paul Balland has handed over the running of the domaine to his two daughters – Burgundy-trained oenologist Isabelle makes the wines, and Elise runs an impressively efficient office. They have some 20 hectares with fine plots on Le Grand Chemarin and Le Chêne Marchand.

     

    The wines of Bué are full and rich in style, the Balland wines are a classic example from this village. It is said that Jean-Paul made the best wine in the village: we certainly don’t believe that Isabelle is doing any less well – lovely  wines.

     

    100% Sauvignon Blanc, the grapes are pressed in a pneumatic press before fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats. Only wild yeasts are used. The fermenting wine is regularly stirred (batonnage) to maximise the flavour and character of the wine.

     

    Dry, fresh and very zippy, this is classic Sancerre at its very best.

  • Château de Ricaud 2015, Loupiac, 12.5% vol, 75cl

    Château de Ricaud 2015, Loupiac, 12.5% vol, 75cl

    BB02

    To the south of Bordeaux city, near Cadillac, Château Ricaud boasts an exceptionally diverse array of soils. Impressed by its quality potential and the architectural splendour of the château, Alain Thiénot (of Champagne fame) bought the property in 1980 and has subsequently put in place a remodelling plan to transform the estate into a benchmark Loupiac and to create a Côtes de Bordeaux worthy of the finest wines.

     

    Loupiac lies across the River Garonne from Sauternes.

     

    Set in a natural amphitheatre and surrounded by three streams, no other spot in the appellation is more affected by the alternating misty and very dry conditions essential to produce the fungus Botrytis Cinerea or “noble rot”.


    Given its location, Château de Ricaud is one of the rare estates where this magic is guaranteed to take place and every year, allowing without fail, the incredible transformation to take place, creating wonderfully aromatic golden nectar.

     

    100% Semillon, vinified and then aged in oak (20% of which is new) for 12 months.

     

    Attractive golden appearance. Lovely freshness on the intense bouquet, full of peach and citrus fruit aromas. The aromas are mirrored on the palate, where they combine with lovely mature noble rot character offering typical apricot and orange rind notes. With beautifully balanced acidity and rich sweetness, the wine has a lingering, aromatic and fresh finish.

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

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

    WB05

    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 wine is aged on its fine lees for 10 months in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks.

     

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

  • Crozes-Hermitage Rouge 2018, “Friandise”, Domaine Melody, 14% vol, 75cl

    Crozes-Hermitage Rouge 2018, “Friandise”, Domaine Melody, 14% vol, 75cl

    RR23

    This 16.5ha property is situated near Mercurol. The vineyards are highly fragmented and spread over many sites within the appellation. The grapes are hand picked with careful selection both in the vineyard and on the sorting table in the winery. Low yields give a great concentration of flavour in the wine.

     

    100% Syrah, the wine is dark and opaque in the glass. The nose is rich with fruit and spice in the background with a full and rounded palate. Strong flavours of blackberries and blackcurrants, hints of pepper and leather over a soft, but well structured, tannin base.
