Happily, our wines have received plenty of acclaim from critics recently. Don’t take our word for it – take theirs!

This mixed case contains two bottles each of:

WHITE:
Côtes du Rhône Villages Sablet: Domaine Saint Gayan 'L'Oratory' 2022
"Elegant and floral, well balanced, good sense of finesse. A lovely silky touch on the palate and no oak getting in the way of the intense melon and pear flavours. Very classic for a Villages white – all about fruit and flowers, and authentically Rhône, really lifted and joyful."
Matt Walls - Decanter.com

Chablis: Domaine Christophe Camu 2023
"It has that elusive whisper of honey on the nose – it's there and it's gone – and a green apple-laden, bone-dry finish. It's fresh and – thanks to the fruit of 50-year-old vines – intense and concentrated." Jonathan Ray - The Spectator.

Menetou Salon: Domaine Jean Teiller Blanc 2022
"Full yet refreshing, this strikes a perfect balance between character and drinkability. The Sauvignon Blanc fruit is ripe and inviting without loss of crunch. A core of pear, melon and peach is coated by hay, white flowers, fennel and blanched almonds."
Ines Salpico - Decanter.com

RED:
Côtes-du-Rhône: Domaine Maby 'Variations' 2021
"It's nicely balanced, lightly floral, expressive."
John Livingstone-Learmonth - DrinkRhone.com

Tinto Negro: Uco Valley Malbec Cabernet Franc 'Limestone Block' 2020
"The 2020 Malbec Tintonegro Limestone Block is mixed with 12% Cabernet Franc, both from Los Chacayes, Uco Valley, where the vines grow in rocky, sandy soils with traces of calcium carbonate. Aged for 12 months in 15% new used oak. It is an intense, reddish purple. The 2020 offers rather liqueur-like aromas and hints of plum and thyme over an attractive violet backdrop. Juicy in the mouth, the fine, chalky tannins vie for dominance initially before lending a pleasant shape to the flow. The flavor is intense and sustained, leaving a touch of fruit behind at the end. Drink 2021 - 2023. 92/100."
Joaquin Hidalgo - Vinous.com

Saint-Chinian: Château Milhau-Lacugue 'Les Truffières' 2017
"A red to which I return almost every year is Château Milhau Lacugue Les Truffières 2017, Saint Chinian, France, which Yapp sells with a few years of age on it so that the roasted plum and wild thyme scent of the syrah-grenache blend has begun to take on a few more bosky notes."
Victoria Moore - The Telegraph.

This mixed case includes

2 x Côtes du Rhône Villages Sablet: Domaine Saint Gayan 'L'Oratory' 2022£0.00

This superb white Côtes du Rhône Villages ‘Sablet’, called 'L'Oratory', is made from a blend of Viognier, Bourboulenc, Clairette, Roussanne and Grenache Blanc. It is fresh and dry, with ample apricot and peach flavours offset by mineral undertones.

2 x Chablis: Domaine Christophe Camu 2023£0.00

Classy, unoaked Chablis from a talented, sixth generation winemaker. It is light and supple enough to savor without accompaniment but will take all manner of crustacea and seafood in its stride.

2 x Menetou Salon: Domaine Jean Teiller Blanc 2022£0.00

The Teillers' Menetou Salon Blanc is a firm favourite chez Yapp. The atypically ripe, juicy style of Loire Sauvignon Blanc is almost certainly influenced by the year that Patricia Teiller and husband Olivier Luneau (who now run the estate) spent winemaking in New Zealand. Certified as an organic wine.

2 x Côtes-du-Rhône: Domaine Maby 'Variations' 2021£0.00

Richard Maby's old-vine Côtes du Rhône hails from vines planted to the west of the Rhône river. Based on around three-quarters old-vine Grenache Noir, small amounts of Syrah, Mourvèdre and Carignan make up the blend. Juicy red berry aromas dominate its nose with a little black pepper and forest fruit on the palate. Terrific with tomato-based dishes especially those soused in garlic, it’s a great introduction to the wines of Lirac and the Rhône Valley.

2 x Tinto Negro: Uco Valley Malbec Cabernet Franc 'Limestone Block' 2020£0.00

Close to an eastern outcrop of the Andes and at over 1,200 metres (4,000 feet) in elevation, the soils and microclimate of Los Chacayes produces Malbecs with delicate floral and blueberry aromas. Co-fermented with 10 to 12% Cabernet Franc to add complexity.

2 x Saint-Chinian: Château Milhau-Lacugue 'Les Truffières' 2017£0.00

Unmistakably a Mediterranean red, this rich, hedonistic blend of Syrah and Grenache from the Hérault is an ideal match for simple, hearty cuisine.
