Domaine Claude Michot Pouilly Fume Les Berthiers 2015 (1x75cl)

Dry, refreshing and crisp. Restrained and elegant, it has understated green apple and lime fruit with hints of flint and smoke on the finish. This is textbook Loire Sauvignon Blanc.

£14.90

Domaine Henri Bourgeois Sauvignon Bouquet de Laporte Vin de Pays du Jardin de la France 2012 (1x 75cl)

The grapes come from the slopes of the Loire Valley known as "The Garden of France". Very aromatic with pleasant flower and fruit fragrances recalling the flower of the vine and the fruit of the Sauvignon. On the palate it reveals a freshness and vivacity characteristic of grapes harvested at good maturity.
£12.24

Domaine Vieux Vauvert Vouvray 2015 (1x 75cl)

Chenin Blanc is much the preserve of South African winemakers these days, but its origins lie in the Loire Valley. Savennières and Coteaux de Layon are perhaps the most famous Loire Chenins, but not always entirely ‘price accessible’. Vouvray provides an elegant and very affordable solution. The Vieux Vauvert is medium-dry (which is to say, there’s just a hint of sweetness) with a lively fresh finish. This wine has a plethora of flavours to share: among them, ripe apple, quince, lime and citrus blossom.

Langlois-Chateau Saumur Blanc 2015 (1x 75cl)

A lifted fresh and approachable, fruity Saumur which offers the freshness of its chalky soil with the white flowers and honeyed characteristics of its grape varietal.

£10.65

Marcel Martin Touraine Sauvignon La Perclaire 2013 (1x 75cl)

Expressive Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire showing exotic fruits on the nose. Great alternative to New World Sauvignon Blanc or Sancerre.

Muscadet ‘Origine du Haut Bourg’ 2006 (1x75cl)

 

Awarded 95 points and a rare Outstanding status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their June 2017 edition review of extended lees-aged Muscadet (see blue link below).

 

Origine du Haut Bourg, Muscadet 2006  - June 2017 Decanter review

 

Think Muscadet? Think thin, bland, nondescript, green and acidic? Think again…!

 

This is – absolutely - no normal Muscadet.  The Haut Bourg has seen a quality of winemaking seldom seen in the Nantais, one more typical of the winemakers of Burgundy’s Cote de Beaune.

 

Although made from Muscadet’s usual Melon de Bourgogne, there all similarities with everyday Muscadet cease. The grapes stem from old vines – a staggering 70 years in age – but the true standout feature is the ten years (yes, ten) that it spends on its fine lees (finer yeast deposits) after fermentation (with battonage) before bottling. Hence, lest you be confused, the 2006 vintage – this only went into glass in July 2016. The body, depth and finish of the wine are substantial, it has a strong autolytic appeal and the acidity and bite are well and appealingly ‘tamed’, yet the wine retains the inherent freshness of a Muscadet. It has a rich gold colour, while the fruit flavours are more tropical (ripe pineapple) and stone (apricot) than Muscadet’s usual green apple/citrus and there is an attractive mineral tang. The lees time creates a very stable wine, and this will comfortably keep five years (and develop further flavour) before drinking.

Paul Buisse Pouilly Fume 2014 (1x 75cl)

It is a fragrant and refreshing aromatic wine, with white fruit and acacia flower aromas, round and slightly creamy in mouth, with a delicate “smoky” tint.
£11.94

Sylvain Gaudron Vouvray Demi-Sec 2014 (1x75cl)

Very pale lemon yellow colour. Hints of honey and fresh hay typical of Chenin. Chalky minerality. Backbone of high acidity keeping the wine taut, energetic and fresh, but rounded out with the merest hint of sweetness.

£13.45
