"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.

Fragrant on the nose, with notes of lime flower, lemongrass and citrus. The palate is crisp and zesty;

Bright pale straw with a watery hue. Notes of fresh citrus fruit give way to delicious, herbaceous aromatics and minerals. A lovely intensity on the palate, displaying crisp lemon and flint on the finish. Delightful!
The Loire valley stretches for 600 kilometres as the great river winds its way from Nevers in central France to the Atlantic. Along its length, a number of different grapes are grown in four distinct sub-regions, from which a wonderful selection of wines is made.Dry white wines are found at either end of the grape-growing regions; whether from Suavignon Blanc from the vineyards of Pouilly-sur-Loire (home of Pouilly-Fumé), Sancerre, Menetou-Salon and Reuilly, or Muscadet from the best sites in the Sèvre-et-Maine Valleys at the river’s mouth.In between one finds white wines made using Chenin Blanc, which can produce a range of styles from the driest to the sweetest wines. Naturally high in acidity, Chenin can be picked either ripe, extremely ripe or occasionally with ‘noble rot’. These latter from Layon and Vouvray produce some of the longest-lived white wines you will find, comparable in potential to the finest Rieslings.
A variety with ancestral links to the Loire valley in France and now planted widely around the world. In France it is best known for Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé, though it is widely used in dry white bordeaux and as a component in sauternes. Sauvignon Blanc has a crisp, grapey countenance and a hallmark fragrance of herbs and green garden fruits. It is rarely exposed to new oak ageing. The variety developed a cult following after its success in New Zealand in the 1990s where growers coaxed richness and pungency from the variety. It is an important variety in both South Africa and Chile, and can be found in California, Austria and elsewhere.
