L'Appel des Sereines Syrah, Francois Villard, N Rhone 2016

'I’ll never forget visiting this chap for the first time back in the early nineties. I nicknamed Villard and his two neighbours, Gaillard and Cuilleron, the Three Musketeers in my notes. They were young, outspoken, daring and made expressive, honest wines. Fastforward 25 years and they’re still heroes in the Northern Rhône, but only one makes a budget Syrah like this one. This is, hands down, one of the most fragrant, juicy and bargain-priced Syrahs on earth. I adore the iodine-tinged nose and blackberry palate – it is the definition of this grape and I heartily commend it to you.' Matthew Jukes, Money Week

Cotes du Rhone 'Les Clapas', Domaine Saint Amant 2016

Prettily floral – violets – with peppery soft fruit. Plenty of regional typicity here. Delicate and spicy with a little grainy tannin. A great value CDR. This is about delicacy and nuances rather than power, coming from a terroir much cooler than low lying vineyards. There is also no oak used on this wine. It is for drinking now. Drink with light summer food, barbeques, rabbit, chicken or lamb scented with herbs, sausages, pasta. This is beautifully made by Camille Nosworthy an architect who fell in love with making wine. It’s a 3.5 hectare vineyard of chalk and clay around the village of Suzette at 500 to 620m in the area of Beaumes de Venise in the spectacular Dentelles de Monmirail. These high vineyards and poor soil make the wine so different from those of the Rhone on the valley floor. Saint-Amant’s Les Clapas is not about weight; it’s about perfume, aromatics and vivacity.

Cotes du Rhone Prieure, Chateau Gigognan 2017 (Organic)

'This powerful Rhône lacks something found in most – tannin. It is rather oddly missing, which is great news. Youthful, vibrant and stuffed with plum and mulberry fruit, there is a decent lick of acidity here which brings tension to the finish, but there is no austerity, dryness, astringency or oakiness. This makes Vignes du Prieuré a goddess in the glass with no hard edges and I would drink it with duck or venison for a beautiful combination. It’s worth pointing out it is indecently well-priced, too.' Matthew Jukes, Money Week

Domaine Charmasson Balazu des Vaussieres 2012

Balazu Des Vaussieres is the domaine of husband and wife team Nadia and Christian Charmasson. They are based in Tavel in the Southern Rhone. Nadia and Christian are committed to biodynamic viticulture, but take it one step further by refusing to use copper – a controversial part of organic farming, currently being discussed in the EU courts. This is extreme organics – very, very few domaines in the world, whether conventional, organic or biodynamic, are willing to take the risk of fungal damage to their crop that not using copper and sulphur usually presents. Nadia and Christian, though, primarily rely on essential oils and herbal preparations to maintain the health of their vines.

St Joseph 'Petit Pere' Aymeric Paillard 2015

The vineyards are near Tournon, opposite Hermitage. Aymeric Paillard worked at Delas, where he converted their Hermitage vineyard to organic, and did some work for Stephane Ogier, prior to finding a 4 hectare vineyard he farms organically. Concentrated, fresh and mineral, with taut compact fruit. There is super tight blackcurrant, licorice, savoury wood and garrigue notes and a hint of pepper. Beautiful, fine, old school style.

Chateauneuf du Pape L'Or de Line 2015

Can’t have Christmas without CNDP. Just can’t be. No sir. This year we’ve pulled a stonker from our Santa’s sack of goodies. From the generous, ripe and ready 2015 vintage, this organic Chateauneuf is certainly worthy of a place on your Christmas dinner table. Perhaps winemaker Gerard Jacumin’s secret ingredient is the Pink Clairette, a rare mutation of Clairette which adds a flavour of roses to the Grenache/Syrah-dominant blend, giving elegance to the palate and fragrance to the nose. A full-bodied Rhone red but with the finest of tannins and a rather impressive degree of elegance given the relatively hot, dry vintage.

St Joseph 'Petit Pere', La Vigne des Peres, Aymeric Paillard 2015 Magnum 150cl

Concentrated, but not overly so, fresh and mineral, with taut compact fruit. The aromas are quite closed, but there is super tight blackcurrant, licorice, savoury wood and garrigue notes and a hint of pepper. The palate is firm but supple.
