Cave Terraventoux Les Sablons Ventoux Rouge half bottle 2015 (6x 37.5cl)

In the foothills of the mighty Mont Ventoux (famed for being one of the most ferocious climbs in the Tour de France) this ultra forward-looking producer has five distinct soil types at its disposal - a winemaker's dream. Head honcho, Richard Ohms, puts these diverse soil types to great use with a well-executed (and very smartly presented) range of wines that are packed with Provencal sunshine.

The grapes are fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for 10-12 days at 25-28°C. No oak is used in the production at any point.

This is a gentle but very fruity blend of Grenache and Syrah with enough tannin and acidity to keep it fresh and appetising.

This wine is suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans.

Chante Cigale Chateauneuf Du Pape 2014 (1x 75cl)

Domaine Chante Cigale is situated on the left bank of the Rhône, between Orange and Sorgues, on a variety of soils which contain a high proportion of ‘galets.’ These are the large stones of Châteauneuf-du-Pape which heat up during the day and release their heat at night, allowing the grapes to achieve maximum ripeness. The red is powerful, with defined fruit characters and supple tannins. Since taking over the running of the estate from his father over ten years ago, Alexandre Favier has transformed the quality of the wines, which now rank amongst the very best of the appellation.

Deep ruby in colour with a wonderful nose of spice and dark fruits this is a real winter warmer. The palate is rich and ripe with layers of fruit and spice supported by fine tannins.

Some of our suggestions for matching food to this wine are: warm cabbage salad with roquefort and peppered bacon, roast leg of lamb with mustard and red wine sauce or spiced venison steaks with red-cabbage confit and red-wine sauce.

Chante Cigale Chateauneuf Reserve Des Oliviers 2013 (1x 75cl)

Domaine Chante Cigale is situated on the left bank of the Rhône, between Orange and Sorgues, on a variety of soils which contain a high proportion of ‘galets.’ These are the large stones of Châteauneuf-du-Pape which heat up during the day and release their heat at night, allowing the grapes to achieve maximum ripeness.

The grenache character predominates on the nose with plenty of raspberry fruit. A succulent attack is balanced by fine tannins and good acidity. The finish is marked by spice and blackcurrant.

This wine is very versatile due to its fine tannins and fresh fruitiness. Try it with chicken in mushroom or red wine sauce, or with a barbeque. For the veggies out there, this goes excellently with cheese and tomoato omlette or a leek and onion quiche.

Chateau De Vaudieu `Val de Dieu` Chateauneuf-du-Pape Rouge 2011 (1x75cl)

The name Vaudieu originated from 'Vallée de Dieu' (Valley of God), a reference to the beauty of the area. The Château is a splendid 18th Century property, once owned by the négociant Gabriel Meffre, and now run by his grandson, Laurent Bréchet. Over the past seven years, Laurent has transformed the estate through substantial investment and an obsession with quality. This is now starting to bear fruit and will yield even higher dividends in the years to come. As at Vaudieu in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Laurent Bréchet has extended his commitment to quality to Domaine des Bosquets, his 25 hectares of vineyards in the Gigondas appellation, at the foot of the Dentelles de Montmirail mountains. Laurent has identified three different areas, which add to the potential for different ripeness levels and fruit characters.

Situated northeast of the town and spread over 70 hectares (60 of red, 10 of white), the soils vary greatly from sand to quartz (galets) and clay/limestone outcrops. This diversity of soil and exposure adds complexity to the blend, with the fruit from the sandier soil lending aromatic elegance and that from the galets giving power and intensity. The vines are between 40 and 70 years old on average. The grapes for the Val de Dieu are picked from the vineyards with the very best exposure.

The fruit was handpicked, then destemmed and crushed before fermentation at 25°C in stainless steel tanks. Natural yeasts were used with regular delestages and gentle pumping over during the fermentation process which lasted around 30 days. Malolactic fermentation was over by mid December. The wine was matured for 16 months with all the Syrah aged in new Burgundian oak barriques. The Grenache and Mourvèdre were aged in concrete vats and second-use 600 litre 'demi-muid' barrels, before final assemblage and bottling.

Deep ruby in the glass, with thrilling aromatics of creamy raspberry, exotic flowers and graphite along with a smoky minerality and hints of chocolate. Full-bodied, this rich, concentrated red from the Southern Rhône has a light elegant texture and superb balance.
