Pick of the Press Mixed Case Offer
Wines that impressed eminent scribes in recent reviews.
We have enjoyed a plethora of positive press this year, so thought it only fair to share some top journalists' preferred choices with you.
This mixed case contains two bottles each of:
Pouilly-Fumé: Domaine Dominique Guyot 'Les Loges' 2019
"The 2019 Domaine Guyot 'Les Loges' Pouilly Fumé is the latest vintage of a wine the Yapps have bought every year since 1973. Classic Loire Sauvignon Blanc, it's full of fresh cut grass and juicily rounded gooseberries with a mineral kick. You won't find better for the price."
Jonathan Ray - The Spectator.
Pfalz: Stefan Meyer 'Aus Rhodt' Chardonnay 2018
"I have to admit to being completely gobsmacked by the swagger and class in this glass. I would not hesitate to guess that this was a lusty, well-established white Burgundy if I were poured this wine blind but, no, it is a thrilling, keenly priced, pioneering German Chardy! Wow – this is a massive treat and a wine you will not forget in a hurry."
Matthew Jukes - MoneyWeek.
Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence: Domaine des Oullières Rosé 2020
"Broad fruit followed by lots of life and energy. Zesty. Drink 2021 – 2022. 16/20"

Côtes du Vivarais 'Grand Aven': Vignerons Ardéchois 2019
"A classic Yapp red, this one's a hearty blend of syrah and grenache that sings of the Rhône, of sun-dried herbs and ripe red and black berries."
Victoria Moore - The Telegraph.
Crozes-Hermitage 'Equinoxe': Domaine Equis 2019
"Mineral-accented dark fruit and floral aromas are energized by a jolt of spicy black pepper. Fleshy, juicy and nicely concentrated, offering finely etched boysenberry, cherry and floral pastille Crozes-Hermitage flavors that tighten up on the back half. Densely packed yet energetic as well, finishing with sharp clarity, smooth tannins and strong persistence. Made from fruit grown on the granitic soils of Saint-Jean-du-Muzols."

Chinon: Francis et Françoise Desbourdes 'L'Arpenty' 2020
"There is nothing more gripping nor more dramatic than a fresh, young, new season Cabernet Franc from the incredible Chinon region in the Loire. This is because it is the most energetic and refreshing blackberry flavour on the planet and the acidity is so clean and bright it goes with every dish you can think of."
Matthew Jukes - Daily Mail.
