2020 Chablis, Samuel Billaud

Dry | White | Still

This comes from a blend of three parcels, which are picked and vinified separately. Samuel says these three parts contribute complexity, richness, and minerality to the blend. That’s a pretty good combination for a Chablis. It has an impressive depth of fruit with a satisfying weight. Its persistent length is clean-cut and refreshing.

2020 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Château de Beaucastel

Dry | Red | Still

This is one of the most celebrated blends of the southern Rhône, notable for its high proportion of Mourvèdre. This variety gives it cool cassis fruit, structure and length. Grenache adds sweet berry tones and a supple texture, and Syrah a dark, powerful concentration, with liquorice intensity. This 2020 is so harmonious and complete, with a herb-scented, floral nose. The palate is silky, yet fresh, with richness, and elegant length supported by refined tannins.

2018 Othello, Dominus Estate, Napa Valley

Red | Still | 14.5%

A brilliant introduction to the Californian wines of Christian Moueix at an excellent price. The 2018 Othello is open and opulent with silky tannins. Expect intense aromatic black fruits and subtle chocolate and sweet spice notes on the finish.

2018 Napanook, Dominus Estate, Napa Valley

Dry | Red | Still | 14.5%

The 2018 Napanook is full of fresh, aromatic bramble flavours, alongside more savoury dried herb and earthy notes. Showing incredible purity and elegance, this is a truly excellent second wine.

2020 Coudoulet de Beaucastel Blanc, Château de Beaucastel, Côtes du Rhône

Dry | White | Still

Much like the Coudoulet Rouge, this is outstanding value for money. But unlike the Coudoulet Rouge, it is produced in miniscule quantities, so it’s a pleasure to have some at all. Like a baby Beaucastel Blanc.

2020 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc, Château de Beaucastel

Dry | White | Still

Beaucastel’s classic white is always built around Roussanne which makes up the majority of the blend, and gives it that wonderful interplay between sweet, ripe stone fruit and bitter nutty character. The Roussanne is accented nicely by some Grenache blanc, with just a dash of Picardan/Clairette/Bourboulenc in the mix to give it dynamic energy. It is undoubtedly one of the finest white blends in the Southern Rhône.

2020 Roussanne Vieilles Vignes, Château de Beaucastel

Dry | White | Still

This is a legendary white in the Southern Rhône. It comes from a tiny parcel of gnarled old Roussanne vines at Beaucastel, and is produced in tiny quantities. The 2020 has Roussann’s typical nutty bitterness with silky apricot fruit. The palate is so smooth it feels almost creamy. Magnificent.
