This red Coteaux d'Aix wine from Domaine des Oullières is a hand-harvested blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Grenache & Syrah: almost a Rhône – Bordeaux fusion. Mid-weight, versatile, and easy-drinking.

It would be fair to say that the Côtes de Thongue: Domaine Les Filles de Septembre 'Tradition' has been our 'find' of the past 5 years. We chanced upon this crowd-pleasing blend of Merlot, Carignan and Grenache while tootling around near Beziers. This garrigue-scented, juicy red is now one of our best sellers; think Bordeaux meets the Languedoc.

"La Vieille Cure’s amazing 2005 is even better than their terrific 2003 and 2000. The 2005 boasts an inky/ruby color as well as a gorgeously sweet perfume of charcoal, black cherries, black currants, and spring flowers as well as an underlying mineral component. Superb concentration, full-bodied power, wonderful symmetry, purity, and texture, and a multidimensional mouthfeel are all found in this fabulous sleeper of the vintage."

There's Muscadet, and then there's Muscadet. The Chereau's bone dry Muscadet 'de Sevre et Maine' and 'Sur Lie' has been consistently excellent since we first shipped it 40 years ago.
Not only is it a briny, failsafe accompaniment to all manner of fruits de mer, but it is readily identifiable by its distinctive label designed by Quentin Blake, depicting a sporting Bacchanalian couple.

“The 2004 shows the property at its best. The blackcurranty aromas do not lack succulence and charm, yet the wine has considerable power, vigor and balance, with an abundance of black fruit flavours and fine length.”
