Alain Chavy Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Les Folatieres 2013 (1x 75cl)

Fresh, floral, lemony white burgundy with lots of new oak on the finish.
£43.40

Alain Chavy Puligny Montrachet 2015 (1x 75cl)

The Puligny from Alain Chavy is bursting with ripe tropical fruit characters, balanced by a concentrated limey acidity and lick of spicy oak.

£33.61

Albert Bichot Chablis 1er Cru Les Vaillons 2014 (1x 75cl)

Very precise floral notes on the nose followed by subtle notes of oak and fresh fruit. Good structure on the palate. This wine is tangy, well balanced and already showing the lovely fullness one would expect from a Premier Cru. A combination of linden blossom and almond give way to a long, rounded finish.

£29.55

Albert Bichot Meursault Domaine Du Pavillon 2015 (1x 75cl)

The Meursault is bright, luminous straw yellow in colour. The nose boasts a discrete touch of toast followed by elegant floral notes underpinned by fruity, light plum and pear aromas. The palate is powerful, well balanced and dense, with delicious flavours of brioche. The finish is long and very aromatic.

£45.40

Bouton Puligny Montrachet 1Er Cru La Garenne 2015 (1x 75cl)

Gilles Bouton excels in producing white Burgundy of elegance and a real sense of place, at particularly reasonable prices. Gilles inherited less than four hectares from his grandfather in 1977 and has expanded to eight since then, renting and cultivating an additional six. The total area is divided into over 70 vineyard plots: an example of the extremely fragmented vineyard ownership that occurs in Burgundy.

Intense aromas of apple, pear and zesty citrus fruit combine with creaminess and a notion of minerality. Remarkably concentrated and powerful for a Puligny with intense fruit framed by oak and a pervasive, underlying minerality.

Enjoy with white meats or with a variety of wild mushrooms and light sauces.

£36.27

Cailbourdin Pouilly Fume Triptique 2014 (1x 75cl)

Light, elegant soft fruit nose. Fine citrus and herbaceous notes. Pure acidity holds the wine together very well and the finish is precise and long. An incredible clean, fresh and impressively well balanced Pouilly Fume.
£26.79

Chateau De La Maltroye Chassagne Montrachet 2015 (1x 75cl)

Typical Chassagne finesse and freshness, showing flavours of apricots and peaches with hints of white flowers and a mineral finish.
£37.68

Chateau De Pibarnon Bandol Blanc 2016 (1x 75cl)

The 2015 vintage was awarded 96 points and Outstanding status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their September 2016 edition review of Provence (see blue link below). The 2015 vintage has alas now run out, but key component analysis of the two vintages shows them to be very similar - the 2016 has merely yet to be subject to review by Decanter!

Pibarnon Blanc 2015 - Sept 2016 Decanter review

Since purchasing the estate in 1975, Comte Henri de Saint-Victor and family have been producing some of the most seductively aromatic and nobly structured wines in all of Southern France.

This celebrated white - 45% Clairette, 30% Bourboulenc, 25% other - is aged in large oak casks after a long, slow fermentation, giving a wine of considerable body and geat flavour integration.

It is mellow and vinous and develops a wonderful freshness that delights the palate, accentuated with flavours of white flowers (jasmine, lime flowers and hawthorn) and fruits (such as pear and peach). It has a almost savoury-salty finish.

It is additionally suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

£27.65

Châteauneuf du Pape La Solitude Blanc 2016 (1x 75cl)

Awarded 88 points and Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their August 2017 edition review of Southern Rhone Whites (see blue link below)

Domaine de la Solitude CdP 2015 - Aug 2017 Decanter review

Wines have been made on this estate for several hundred years, dating back to 1264 when the family arrived from Italy to serve the pope in Avignon. The three hats depicted on the label, signifies two bishops and a pope, who were among the fore fathers of the Lançon family. Today, the Domaine with its 38 hectares in the Châteauneuf du Pape appellation, is passing to the next generation as brothers Jean and Michel Lançon are handing over the reins to Florent, Michel's son. Florent, who is passionate about innovative winemaking, whilst honouring traditional values, has recently started working with new tulip-shaped concrete vats which were initially designed for Cheval Blanc and are at the cutting edge of winemaking technology. Domaine de la Solitutude’s wines are renowned for their characteristic elegance whilst expressing the true origins of their terroir.

This domaine has one of the best terroirs in Châteauneuf-du-Pape with its abundance of rounded quartzite stones. These stones absorb heat during the day then radiate it at night, promoting full grape maturity. The grapes are manually harvested, once each variety has reached ripeness. The grape bunches are then meticulously sorted to remove any unwanted fruit.

The grapes were pressed immediately upon arrival at the winery. The juice was cold settled and then fermented in temperature controlled tanks. The wine was then aged on its fine lees in small tanks with regular stirrings. Part of the Roussanne was matured in new oak for a short period, adding complexity to the resulting wine. The wine was then bottled during the Spring following the harvest.

Thi is an elegant wine of great complexity, with citrus aromas enveloped in layers of minerality and herbal nuances. On the palate, this wine is full-flavoured with a creamy texture, powerful and long.

David Moret Meursault 1Er Cru Les Charmes 2014 (1x 75cl)

David Moret makes top quality white Burgundy from his small cellar in Beaune. David studied winemaking at school, but didn't have a family domaine to work in when he graduated, so he began his career in wine by selling winery equipment to local vignerons. His personable character ensured success in this endeavour, as well as friendships with some of the top growers of the Côte de Beaune. He purchased his first barrels in the late 1990s, and since then, he has continued to buy small parcels of grapes from the top growers to press and ferment in his cellar, always from the same plots of vines, since he knows the ones he wants.

Meursault has 17 Premiers Crus, of which the highest-regarded are 'Les Charmes', 'Les Genevrières' and 'Les Perrières' (many regard these three as the unofficial 'Grand Crus' of Meursault). The 30 hectares of Les Charmes sits on the southern border with Puligny-Montrachet; the limestone and clay soils give wines which are round and appealing. The grapes were all handpicked into small boxes, which ensured the berries remained intact and healthy for their arrival at the winery.

Grapes were brought straight to the winery and were pressed immediately, to preserve the precious Chardonnay aromas and flavours. The wine went through alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels and ageing, for 18 months before being bottled and resting in cellars for several months. David used 30% new French oak, to ensure that the fine character of his Meursault shines through.

This wine has delightful floral aromas and hints of white peach on the nose. On the palate, the wine is concentrated with lively acidity, fine, integrated oak and a creamy texture.

David Moret Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru `Les Folatières` 2014 (1x 75cl)

David Moret makes top quality white Burgundy from his small cellar in Beaune....

David studied winemaking at school, but didn't have a family domaine to work in when he graduated, so he began his career in wine by selling winery equipment to local vignerons. His personable character ensured success in this endeavour, as well as friendships with some of the top growers of the Côte de Beaune. He purchased his first barrels in the late 1990s, and since then, he has continued to buy small parcels of grapes from the top growers to press and ferment in his cellar, always from the same plots of vines, since he knows the ones he wants.

Puligny-Montrachet is devoted almost exclusively to the production of Chardonnay. Soils here are generally extremely thin with good levels of limestone, producing wines that are round, elegant and appealing. At 16 hectares, 'Les Folatières' is the largest 1er Cru in Puligny and shares a similar altitude and soil composition as Grand Cru Chevalier Montrachet.

Never has the phrase 'all's well that ends well' rung so true as in the case of the 2014 Burgundy vintage. Devastating hailstorms in June were followed by a cold and rainy August, where temperatures struggled to reach 20°C. These conditions meant that the threat of rot, under-ripe grapes and another low-yielding vintage hung over the growers. Just as all hope was fading, September was bathed in sunshine and rescued the 2014 vintage from the brink of disaster.

Grapes were brought straight to the winery and were pressed immediately, to preserve the precious Chardonnay aromas and flavours. Using naturally occurring yeasts, the wine went through alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels. The wine was then aged for 12 months in oak, of which 40% was new, before being bottled and resting in cellars for several months.

This is a superb Premier Cru. Supremely fine and elegant with wonderful minerality and fruit levels. The palate is creamy, with lovely acidity and great fruit intensity and the finish is long and persistent.

David Moret Rully 2015 (1x75cl)

David Moret makes top quality white Burgundy from his small cellar in Beaune. David studied winemaking at school, but didn't have a family domaine to work in when he graduated, so he began his career in wine by selling winery equipment to local vignerons. His personable character ensured success in this endeavour, as well as friendships with some of the top growers of the Côte de Beaune. He purchased his first barrels in the late 1990s, and since then, he has continued to buy small parcels of grapes from the top growers to press and ferment in his cellar, always from the same plots of vines, since he knows the ones he wants.

Fruit is sourced exclusively from the Rully appellation, the northern most village in the Côte Chalonnaise. Here, slopes, soils and appellations are quite varied, with those situated on the higher sites producing fruit to rival that of the nearby Côte de Beaune. Grapes for this wine are grown on limestone and clay, producing wines which are round and appealing. The grapes were all handpicked into small boxes, which ensured the berries remained intact and healthy for their arrival at the winery.

2015 experienced a warm summer with little rainfall, which brought the harvest forward. The Chardonnay grapes were harvested at full ripeness and the resulting wines are full of stone fruit characters, with more richness and lower acidity levels than the wines of 2014.

Grapes were brought straight to the winery and were pressed immediately via an air press, to preserve the precious Chardonnay aromas and flavours. The wine went through alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels, then ageing for a total of 15 months, before being bottled and resting in the cellars for approximately six months.

Pale golden in appearance. The nose is full with a varying bouquet of flavours; elderberry, lemon, white peach and hints of flint. The palate strikes the characteristically Burgundian balance between acidity and richness, with bright fruit, nuts, oatmeal and notes of honey, a rounded palate and a long finish.

David Moret Saint Romain 2015 (1x75cl)

David Moret makes top quality white Burgundy from his small cellar in Beaune. David studied winemaking at school, but didn't have a family domaine to work in when he graduated, so he began his career in wine by selling winery equipment to local vignerons. His personable character ensured success in this endeavour, as well as friendships with some of the top growers of the Côte de Beaune. He purchased his first barrels in the late 1990s, and since then, he has continued to buy small parcels of grapes from the top growers to press and ferment in his cellar, always from the same plots of vines, since he knows the ones he wants.

The vineyards of Saint Romain are mainly located in a side valley to the west of Auxey-Duresses, in the direction of the communes and vineyards of the Hautes Côtes de Beaune. A little more than half of the production consists of white wine. There are no Grand Cru and no Premier Cru vineyards within Saint Romain.

2015 experienced a warm summer with little rainfall, which brought the harvest forward. The Chardonnay grapes were harvested at full ripeness and the resulting wines are full of stone fruit characters, with more richness and lower acidity levels than the wines of 2014.

Grapes were brought straight to the winery and were pressed immediately, to preserve the precious Chardonnay aromas and flavours. The wine went through alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels, then ageing for a total of just over 12 months, before being bottled and resting in the cellars for approximately six months. David only used 25% new French oak, to ensure that the fine character of his wine shines through.

The David Moret Saint Romain 2015 has pale golden reflections in the glass. Lemon aromas and buttery characteristics. On the palate, balanced acidity and a mineral touch round off the citrus flavours before a lingering finish.
