    $27.00 $23.00in any six

    $31.00 per single bottle

    Distinctly floral, almost soapy perfume, apricot and liquorice root, and a fair amount of exotic spice. It’s an unusual version of Fiano, but it has the texture going on, with fine chalk and raw almond grip, golden apple and bitter lemon, a waxy richness, and enough acidity to balance. Finish is long, aromatic, and juicy. […]

    Damien Laureau’s 2018 La Petite Roche has a greater concentration of fruit than the 2016, riper acids and more succulence. To put this in perspective though, Laureau makes extremely pure, precise and mineral chenin blanc and the 2018 is true to form with just a little bit more flesh. A truly gorgeous wine for slightly […]

    The dark-straw color with orange reflexes and the bold tannins on the palate mean that this is, in some sense, an orange wine.

    Valenciso’s Blanco 2018 is a super pretty, aromatic wine with crushed citrus and savoury notes and a juicy, silky yet tangy, vibrant palate. Racy yet with good texture thanks to the low yields from the ancient vines. The finish is salty, savoury and refreshing. The Blanco is crafted from 100+ year old vines of Viura […]

    Review for the 2018 – Light straw-yellow colour, slightly cloudy in the glass – an unfiltered appearance. Lemon, herb and floral aromas, very attractive. The wine is bright and fresh, crisp and lively, with a dry finish and brisk acidity. A touch of nuttiness. Honey grew the longer it was in the glass. Struck-flint notes […]

    2016 is an outstanding year for white Rhone, and this intensely aromatic release is full of lovely acacia, fennel seed, honey and apricot notes. The palate is bright and exuberant, whilst remaining typically textural, with fleshy marmalade and peach skin fruit, all perfectly balanced by this wine’s characteristic, sappy and savoury freshness.

    Chenin as Riesling. The 2017 Anjou Blanc from Thibaud Boudignon is utterly different from the ‘a Francoise’. Tighter, finer and more linear, the fruit profile is more citrus and white peach, rather than the yellow fruits of the ‘a Francois’. Rippling power and energy, the fruit really dominates with faint notes of lavender honey, nuts […]

    This vineyard’s soil is composed of deep clays and white chalk.

    Clos Naudin is one of the great Vouvray estates. Although the wine is off-dry, the sweetness lends it incredible tension and some extra heft.
