One of our best finds ever, positively brimming with tangy grapefruit refreshment
Delightful bright and perky Sauvignon from the Loire Valley. Ideal for parties and casual dining.
Delightful Viognier with classic delicate aromas of apricot and peach.
A tasty southern blend with zippy citrus as well as riper notes and a touch of oak
A great substitute for Sancerre with juicy citrus, gun flint and nettles.
Lovely, waxy gripping Chenin that's supremely expressive for the price.
A fine-dining barrel-fermented Sauvignon blend, made in the style of a white Bordeaux. The magician of Ch L'Église-Clinet, Denis Durantou, is consulting.
A delicious, hand-made artisanal white from the Roussillon with a contemporary feel to it. "Offers notions of white peach, dried pineapple, mineral and loads of white flower-like qualities, as well as a medium-bodied, rich and balanced profile on the palate" - The Wine Advocate
Luxurious blend of Roussanne and Grenache Blanc from the Languedoc.
A proper artisanal white from one of the cool young turks of the Roussillon, Jean-Philippe Padie. Don't serve this too cold and we would suggest decanting it to let its full fabulous complexity emerge.
"Seek this out" The Wine Advocate. Swig note - Really lovely open nose. Deep with the warmth of a good vintage. It has nice texture and weight but it's fresh and elegant too. It's a lovely more characterful alternative to Chablis at this price with definitely a hint of Meursault about it. Really lovely.
This is classic. Lemon butter on the nose. The palate is honeyed with a generous texture. Delicious. Brilliant with fish.
"It is a dead-ringer for a fine Condrieu." 91 points, Robert Parker
A deceptively simple St Aubin - Olivier Lamy's calling card
This is the lightest and most forward of Lamy's cuvees - one for drinking from now until 2018
Having loved the Les Grechons Blanc from Michel Mallard, we now find ourselves loving another wine from this overachieving vineyard, this time from Maratray-Dubreuil. It's clearly a great spot for Chardonnay in the Cote d'Or.
For lovers of classic white burgundy, this will fit the bill
Everyone needs Condrieu in their life. This is a lovely, as pure and fine as it gets. 93pts. The Wine Advocate - "Deep and layered, offers knockout aromas and flavors of tangerine, apricot, white flowers and lychee nut. A classic Condrieu, with beautiful aromatics, plenty of texture and a clean finish, enjoy it over the coming 3-5 years." The Wine Advocate
The most stunning nose. Really exciting, top gear white Burgundy. Beautiful, elegant, good texture, singing fruit. Lovely and lifted. This is top quality. Superb length "Readers disowning white Burgundy because of prices should really stock up on these... a treasure trove of often outstanding wines" - Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate. 92-94 pts, The Wine Advocate.
Amazing depth and power on the nose yet balanced by the bright mineral and citrus notes. A beautiful mouthful with good weight but not over powering. A bit fatter on the palate than the Vignes Blanche. Very well balanced with with a core of citrus zing that adds back bone but which does not stand out. Luxurious.

"This is a lovely effort" - Allen Meadows
Selected by Decanter Magazine as one of the best value Burgundies at the 'en primeur' tastings held in London in January 2013
"This is first-rate." - Allen Meadows
Incredibly exciting new producer that we are delighted to offer. Lovely elegant fruit, some sherbert, fresh pure, vibrant Puligny. This is only Pernot's second vintage and already he's impressing all and sundry. It’s a bright, zingy-yet-serious style, with great lemon tang and that sense of liquid running over stone. Proper village Puligny-Montrachet, excellent quality and genuinely exciting to drink. Superb length. Drink now or enjoy a few cases over the next 6 or so years.
Super fine linear pure style of Burgundy with excellent depth and balancing verve, yet flavoursome and gorgeous with it. If you need to prove to a friend how good white Burgundy can be, show them this. Made by one of the region's most respected winemakers Pierre-Yves Colin.
Much sought after Alsace Riesling. 3 bottles available
Stunning dry Riesling that sends shivers down your goosebumps
Really good Bordeaux style; hints of stalk, soft fruit, very pure. Refreshing. Excellent wine for roast beef and other roast dinners and a versatile every day wine.
A beautifully perfumed, juicy southern French Syrah and Grenache blend which combines lightness of touch and fruit intensity. A favourite of ours. It comes from the Terrasses du Larzac, which is one of the most exciting regions in France for th Southern Rhone / French style. "My theory is that Terrasses du Larzac is the greatest spot in the Languedoc" Andrew Jefford

Brimming with southern French warmth and personality – a real bargain.
A terrific, medium-bodied Cotes du Rhone with a proudly natural, unembellished feel to it
A rare, special taste of Gamay in a more muscular, structured style than most Beaujolais (home of Fleurie, Brouilly and Moulin a Vent) though it is still has loads of fruit, cassis and raspberries, finesse and freshness with supple tannins. Organic.
Finally, a Cahor that lives up to what we so very much wanted from France's spiritual Malbec home. Rich, dark, with lovely cocoa notes.
Super smooth red from the Languedoc-Roussillon - a great new find!
A delicious, rambunctious, Syrah and Grenache blend with a rich glaze of fancy oak
Bushels of fruit, cranberries, blackberries and plums from the nose are wrapped in plush, soft-textured tannins on the palate. The effect is sensual, and that texture is guiding, caressing the palate for both the beginning and the middle, before the depth and grip of the tannins assert themselves. The effect is to be both plush and decadent whilst structured and serious at the same time. Contradictory? Perhaps, but deliciously and more-ishly so.
High quality Pomerol-style from a domaine just 2000m from Petrus. It has that wonderful perfume that that makes you realise you’ve hit upon a fabulous Bordeaux.. "Ormeau, it's stunning" Ben Bevan

Classic claret with an aroma of cedar, tobacco leaves, blackcurrant and wood. "A particularly successful 2007." - Jancis Robinson
An enchanting village wine that reels you in with its sleek, perfumed, sweet red fruits
Pinot Noir from the Loire Valley, wonderfully fresh and pure and supple!
"One of the regions most underappreciated talents” - The Wine Advocate. Only 5 barrels produced
Lovely nose ; there are hints of Burgundy and a touch of game with some Rhone about it. The palate is deep and supple, elegant and sensual. There is the warmth of the South coming through, and plenty of juiciness with gives it a good texture. This is really impressive Beaujolais that is ideal to drink with good, being richer wiht loads more character than most from the region.
