Barroubio Muscat De Saint Jean De Minervois 2015 (1x 75cl)

Domaine de Barroubio is located on a high plateau in the department of Hérault in the commune of Saint Jean de Minervois, a viticultural area famed for the Muscat grape. The vineyards, which lie at an altitude of 250m above sea level, face south for maximum sun exposure. Owner and winemaker Raymond Miquel has built a reputation for the fine quality of his Muscats.

This fortified sweet wine - vin doux naturel - is shimmering golden in the glass with an intense, complex nose of grapes, pear, rose petals and citrus. On the palate it is sweet, rich, powerful with a balancing zesty acidity on the long finish.

This intensely aromatic sweet wine should be served very cold and will pair strongly flavoured foods from foie gras to chocolate cake.

Domaine Debray Volnay France 2008 (1x 75cl)

We took into stock a number of of Debray’s 2008 offerings some years ago, have kept them perfectly and they are now in great shape for drinking. Volnay, from the middle of the Cote de Beaune, has always offered the the lighter and fruitier side of red Burgundy (red fruits: redcurrants, cherry, raspberry, strawberry) and this one does that in spades, with the flavours of ageing now nicely laid down among these.


Paul Jaboulet Ainé Cotes Du Rhone Rouge Secret De Famille 2014 (1x 75cl)

Since the early 19th Century, Paul Jaboulet Ainé has been synonymous with quality wine in the Rhône Valley. Jaboulet’s Hermitages, Condrieus and Côte-Rôties are the stuff of legend and not our average sales fare. But this, their “everyday” (if Jaboulet can ever be described as “everyday”) Côtes du Rhône brings all that winemaking experience to bear brilliantly for less than a tenner. It is elegant, fruity and full-bodied and brings together Syrah (40%) and Grenache (60%) in a rather more powerful, spicy (yet balanced) form than we find with most Côtes du Rhône.


Leconfield Old Vines Riesling 2014 (1x 75cl)

Don’t get us started on Riesling. Few, if any, grape varieties have been maligned and shunned for so long. In the case of Riesling, the pity is all the greater given the sheer quality of the wines it produces. So it’s great to see a Riesling renaissance, especially in the New World (indeed, this isn’t the only New World Riesling in our 24). Producer Leconfield specialise in two of Australia’s great winemaking regions: Coonawarra and McLaren Vale, both far more famous for their Cab Sauv and Shiraz. Which is what we were going to choose from this great range … until we tried the Riesling. Achieving the right balance of finesse and fruitiness can be tough for Rieslings grown in warmer areas, but this one gets it just right. It’s a fully dry Riesling: there’s no off-dry sweetness here. Great citrussy flavours typical of most Rieslings are, perhaps unusually, joined by some altogether richer and more tropical flavours driven by the extra warmth of Coonawarra.
