Intense purple color with a heady nose of blackberry. Juicy red and black berries are amply supported by red fruit, dill, woodsmoke, crushed stones, white pepper, tobacco, cocoa and subtle baked apple notes.
Earthy nose with black cherry, menthol and briarwood hints – classic southern France. Medium-to-full-bodied with moderate acidity and firm, dry tannin – good balance. Dark fruit core with black cherry, rose attar and tarry notes. Long finish – smooth with dark chocolate and cocoa dust. Lovely.
Often seen as a satellite of Bordeaux, Bergerac offers fine value with the same grapes grown south east . An earthy blend of Merlot and Cabernet , this has plenty of fleshy dark berry fruit and a light dusting of tannin. Terrific with leg of lamb.
A pleasant wine in which aromas give a particularly fruity bouquet. To the palate, the balance of fragrances produce a voluptuous and fresh taste, in which the intensity of wild strawberries prevails. A fresh and fragrant combination.
Sémillon and 15% Sauvignon Gris and reminded me of Margaret River whites with its shimmering, verdant fruitiness, backed up by savoury, leesy flavour. With no oak influence and 12.5% alcohol, it's an easy drinker that has substance and plentiful flavour.
Twenty three grape varieties go into this stunning bottle which is made from a single small parcel of land, with some of the vines up to 100 years old. Smooth, silky, juicy; this wine is pure deliciousness. Also known as heaven in a bottle.
In the Premier league of the Beaujolais crus Moulin a Vent offers a richness and silky texture only matched by Morgon. Hubert Lapierre fashions a lovely wine here. Bright cherry fruit , lively acidity and a fresh finish. Perfect with charcuterie.
From an organic estate, this lovely Sauvignon St Bris exudes class. Lovely passionfruit and some delicate elderflower on the palate with a refreshing, steely dry finish. A great alternative to Sancerre.
