Over our 51 years in business, we have slowly but surely expanded the geographic coverage of our wine producers; largely because we can't resist a bargain when we taste one. This seems to have been well-received by our customers and has even been noted by legendary wine journalists:
"My highest scores of all went to the wines shown by Yapp Bros, including a great value fizz and an array of seriously interesting wines from all over the world, not just the Loire and Rhône for which they were originally famous."
Jancis Robinson OBE, MW.

This sextet is a good example of the variety available, whites that span Southern Corsican Vermentino to Pinot Gris from the Pfalz, via a detour to the Roussillon. The three reds sweep through Southern France – Provence, Languedoc and the Roussillon.

As ever, this 'Sommelier Service' mixed case (see here for regular wine deliveries) is also available as all red or all white.

This mixed case contains two bottles each of:

WHITE:
Côtes du Roussillon: Les Sorcières du Clos des Fées Blanc 2018
Vin de Corse Sartène Blanc: Domaine Saparale 2018
Pfalz: Pinot Gris vom Kalkstein 2018

RED:
Côtes du Roussillon: Domaine Ferrer-Ribière 'Cuvée Tradition' 2016
Malepère: Domaine Girard 'Cuvée Tradition' 2017
Côtes du Luberon: Château la Canorgue Rouge 2017

This mixed case includes

2 x Côtes du Roussillon: Les Sorcières du Clos des Fées Blanc 2018£0.00

The Sorcières' white sibling is an expressive, aromatic 'Mediterranean' blend of Grenache blanc, Vermentino, Roussanne and Maccabeo. The perfect match for spicy 'pulpo' or grilled sardines.

2 x Vin de Corse Sartène Blanc: Domaine Saparale 2018£0.00

Philippe Farinelli's Corsican white wine has subtle Maquis herb and wild flower scents and a smoothly-textured citrus-edged palate. This pure Vermentino from the Ortolo valley makes an ideal partner to salmon steaks or lemon-infused chicken dishes.

2 x Pfalz: Pinot Gris vom Kalkstein 2018£0.00

This is just the kind of under-the-radar, great value white that makes German wines the 'open secret' of the UK wine industry. Pure Pinot Gris (Grauer Burgunder), produced on limestone soils just north of Alsace, this crisp white makes for an ideal aperitif or partner to shellfish or Thai cuisine.

Certified as a Vegan wine.

2 x Côtes du Roussillon: Domaine Ferrer-Ribière 'Cuvée Tradition' 2016£0.00

The Côtes du Roussillon Cuvée Tradition from Domaine Ferrer-Ribière is a versatile, light-heavyweight wine with aromas of Autumnal fruit and a deep, core of cassis and kirsch.

2 x Malepère: Domaine Girard 'Cuvée Tradition' 2017£0.00

Ever on the lookout for impressive wines from far-flung regions, this Malepère - a Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot from the Western edge of the Languedoc - tickled our fancy. Enjoy with a cassoulet from nearby Castelnaudary.

2 x Côtes du Luberon: Château la Canorgue Rouge 2017£0.00

The dense, dark Château la Canorgue rouge has wonderful, wild herb scents and garrigue berry flavours supported by a framework of ripe tannins - a round and powerful Provence wine.
