Spring Sipping Mixed Case Offer

Rhône, Loire, Gascony, Ardèche, Corsica &... Argentina!

Spring Sipping - Mixed Case
£149.00
Save £15.00
Spring Sipping - All White & Rosé
£149.00
Spring Sipping - All Red
£149.00

Six wines that cover a broad range of styles and occasions. The two zesty, well-crafted and un-oaked whites are ideal as aperitifs, while the back label of the rosé – a blend of Vermentino, Sciacarello and Nielluccio – recommends partnering it with grilled fish, sea urchins or Corsican charcuterie (coppa and lonzu). Who are we to argue?

Turning to the reds, you have the 'fruity and floral' Southern Rhône 'Petit Caboche' blend from la famille Boisson, a mid-weight, single-vineyard Loire Cabernet Franc from les Filliatreaus and (new to our cellars) a rich Malbec (co-fermented with Cabernet Franc) that was grown on limestone soils at elevation in Argentina's Uco Valley – bring on the medium-rare rib-eye.

This case also serves as our 'Sommelier Service' case – a subscription arrangement where customers get a delivery of six different wines (two bottles of each) every two months for £149. For further details of the service, see here for regular wine deliveries. As ever, this case is available as all red or all white & rosé.

WHITE:
IGP Ardèche: Les Vignerons Ardéchois Chardonnay 2020
Côtes de Gascogne: Domaine de Millet Colombard - Ugni Blanc 2019

ROSÉ:

This mixed case includes

2 x IGP Ardèche: Les Vignerons Ardéchois Chardonnay 2020£0.00

A refreshing, unoaked Chardonnay from the Ardèche, a happy hunting ground for well-made and keenly priced wines. It's a stalwart crowd-pleaser that's ideal for serving at buffets and drinks parties.

2 x Côtes de Gascogne: Domaine Millet Colombard - Ugni Blanc 2019£0.00

The Domaine de Millet blanc is one of our best-selling wines, despite its humble I.G.P status, as it is unfailingly reliable and gives a lot of bang for your buck. This unashamed crowd-pleaser wine from the Côtes de Gascogne, a blend of Ugni Blanc and Colombard, has a bright, zesty palate with a whistle-clean finish and works well as an aperitif or partner to salads and seafood.

2 x Vin de Corse Sartène Rosé: Domaine Saparale 2020£0.00

A delicious rosé wine from a blend of three classic Corsican grapes - Vermentino and Sciacarello with a splash of Nielluccio. It makes a perfect al fresco aperitif or partner to dressed crab or lobster.

2 x Vin de Pays de Vaucluse: Le Petit Caboche 2019£0.00

This lip-smacking, supple blend from Vaucluse has dollops of red fruit and warm, spicy flavours. A wine made by Jean-Pierre Boisson (former Mayor of Châteauneuf-du-Pape) and his daughter Emilie.

2 x Saumur Champigny: Domaine Filliatreau 'La Grande Vignolle' 2020£0.00

'La Grande Vignolle' is a mid-weight, ripe, rounded Cabernet Franc from long-time Yapp suppliers Domaine Filliatreau. It has a wonderful concentration of brambly fruit, underpinned by supple tannins.

2 x Tinto Negro: Uco Valley Malbec Cabernet Franc 'Limestone Block' 2018£0.00

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