"Once again the Mistral and warm, late Indian summer has blessed us with a great vintage" - Marc Perrin, Beaucastel
Starting at just £11.50 a bottle in bond, the new releases of Bins 28, 150, 407 and 389 offer real value for money and, show immense potential for ageing - if you can resist.
With many lines of rare or old fine wines - and all available by the bottle.
Recent tastings have proved that it is, without a shadow of a doubt, a spectacular vintage and set to be seen as one of the great Port vintages of all time, creating wines of intensity, power and quite surprising poise.
Very lifted, fragrant Cabernet fruit, with wild violets and crushed hedgerow berries. Concentrated in the vineyard rather than the winery, with very fine tannins and crunchy acidity - it has an almost Burgundian feel. Very graceful, complex and long, this proves that there is still value to be found in Bordeaux.
£84 per Case
12 bottles In Bond
Fragrant on the nose, with notes of lime flower, lemongrass and citrus. The palate is crisp and zesty;

Charming on the nose, with bright cherry aromas and a hint of spice. On the palate, this has concentrated red berry fruit and a touch of savoury earthiness that gives it a real sense of depth and distinction. This is beautifully balanced, classic Fleurie and will be delicious with summer salads, grilled poultry and barbecued fish.
Beaujolais, the region, its people and its wines have no pretensions of grandeur. Most estates are small – five to eight hectares is the norm – and on the rolling granite hills in the ‘villages’ zone, leading domaines produce wines which possess vigour and appeal. Produced from the Gamay grape, one of the few French grape varieties not to have been adopted by winemakers around the world, Beaujolais is far more than the early-drinking, uncomplicated wine it is often perceived to be. Real Beaujolais is something that every wine lover should know about and every wine connoisseur worth his salt has a duty to try! While many examples reward short-term cellarage, others are capable of assuming true burgundy-like qualities after several years in bottle. The latest releases from the region perfectly express the terroir pf their crus – the ten villages which produce the most outstanding wines of the region. There are evocative names here, Fleurie, Juliénas and Morgon, villages whose wines epitomise the vibrant mouth-watering quality of Beaujolais. It is all too simple really – just remove a bottle from the rack, pull the cork and pour to experience some truly delicious wines.
Best known as the grape of Beaujolais. Gamay from the unique granite soils west of Villefranche sur Saône delivers the juicy fruit, soft tannins and vibrant aromas for which this style is celebrated. Gamay contributes, together with Pinot Noir, to the blend of a Bourgogne Passtoutgrains, and is found in some of the dry wines of Touraine, in the Loire.
