From the heart of the Loire Valley this wine is pure opulence. All the fruit is from a small limestone-rich vineyard in the heart of the Loire. Honeyed pear, quince, yellow apple dominate the palate with a slight smoky quality. The palate is rich yet zippy, complex yet fresh. Try with shellfish or pork. This will cellar for another 10 years or so. Biodynamic.
The purity of Chardonnay mixed with the richness of the Mediterranean climate of Mâconnais region. A supple wine with a citrus character and white fruits. The concentration is balanced by a fresh fruity length.
This Cotes du Rhone was harvested at night to prevent oxidation and avoid the use of SO2, this keeps the freshness and protects the natural aromas of the grapes. The wine was then vinified without the addition of any sulphites. A deep ruby in colour, the palate is elegant and well balanced with red fruits, spice notes and soft tannins.
On the nose red berries and spice, complemented by nuts and a hint of oak; on the palate notes of liquorice are detectable. A big brute of a wine, the mighty Tannat takes time to reveal its charms. The tannins can be tempered by double jugging, and a good hour in the Decanter. The results are marvellous.
This wine is a blend of different plots of Côtes de Nuits. There are some Villages appellations in this Bourgogne Pinot Noir. That's where this wine finds its high quality. Aromas of black cherries, raspberries and earth. Bright, fresh and juicy; flavors of raspberries, blueberry jam, baking spices.
Condrieu grape variety - at a non-Condrieu price! Grapes are from vineyards just outside the Condrieu appellation in the Northern Rhone. Yves Cuilleron lives up to his great reputation with this outstanding wine.
Frank, bright red wine made from 100% pinot noir. The wine is light and elegant, produced from grapes grown in chalky clay soil. Hints of red fruits on the nose which are followed on the palate, along with vanilla notes.
Very deep garnet red. Nose is exotic, tarry, spicy. Very good attack, silky, ripe black fruit, good body, tannins very finely integrated. Youthful and supple, no awkward edges. Elegant, with a long finish
Flinty, grassy and classy Sauvignon. Gold pale tinted wine with hints of peach and grapefruit on the nose. On the palate,this wine does not disappoint and is well balanced with citrus and stone fruit flavours.
Opaque, perfumed with fragrant black cherry, cassis and spice. Full bodied, intense with countless layers of flavour including blackcurrant, cedar and graphite. Dense fruit on the palate is bound by a structure of fine grained tannins and a lively acidity. This wine shows great depth and character and yet is refined with a long, elegant finish.

Spice and cassis on the nose. There is weight and depth on this wine made from 60%Cabernet Sauvignon with 40% Merlot to flesh it out giving hints of blueberry, blackcurrant, tobacco and leather on a long, lingering finish.
Lively citrus and grassy herb aromas. The palate is medium to light in body, dry and with good limey acidity that magnifies the citrus and mineral characters. Lengthy, clean and absolutely no oak on this 100% Sauvignon Blanc.
