The French Selection

1 x Domaine des Vieux Pruniers Sancerre 2018, Loire

Harvested from vineyards located only on the slopes of the Sancerre region, which increases drainage and exposure to sunlight in order to maximise quality. Individual parcels are harvested and vinified separately in stainless steel, temperature controlled tanks. After blending, the wine is clarified before bottling with no oak contact.

1 x Chateau de Santenay, Clos de la Chaise Dieu 2015, Burgundy

This magnificent property, which dates back to the 9th century, is also known as Château Philippe le Hardi, as it was once owned by the first Duc of Burgundy. This Chardonnay is bright, pale gold in colour. The nose is bursting with notes of white peach and citrus with a delicate touch of fresh hazelnut. The palate is lively, full and balanced by a refreshing acidity. The finish is long and delicate.

1 x A. Morin Picpoul de Pinet 2018, Languedoc

The Picpoul de Pinet vineyard area runs along the southern French coast, close to both the Mediterranean sea and the Bassin de Thau. Pale lemon in colour with fresh floral notes on the nose. The palate is light and dry with flavours of green apple, citrus and white blossom with the classic saline note that makes Picpoul de Pinet so distinctive.

1 x Chateau Montaiguillon, Montage Saint-Emilion 2014, Bordeaux

With 20% of Cabernet Franc in the blend, this is a finely perfumed wine. It has a firm texture along with juicy black fruit and some lively acidity. The 70-acre vineyard faces Saint-Émilion across a small valley.

1 x Frederic Berne, Beaujolais Lantignie Granit Rose 2018, Beaujolais

Brought up on a farm in Beaujolais, Frédéric Berne has always had a natural connection with the land around him. Encouraged by his parents to do something different, and attracted by wine’s ability to express its surroundings, he decided to become a winemaker. The Beaujolais Lantignié `Granit Rose` is perfumed with floral notes and red and black cherries. The palate is posied and well-balanced with fine tannins and lifted acidity.

1 x Maison Les Alexandrins, Saint-Joseph 2017, Rhone

Maison Les Alexandrins is the newly renamed collaboration between Nicolas Jaboulet, formerly of the eponymous winery in Tain, winemaker Guillaume Sorrel and viticulturalist Alexandre Caso. This wine is deep ruby red in colour. On the nose, there are rich aromas of wild fruits, cocoa and a hint of minerality. On the palate, it is medium-bodied with soft, fresh tannins. This powerful wine has a distinct elegance to it and a long, lingering finish.
