Chante Cigale Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc 2016 (1x 75cl)

Awarded 90 points and Highly Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their August 2017 edition review of Southern Rhone Whites (see blue link below)

Chante Cigale CdP 2016 - Aug 2017 Decanter review

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 white is fresh and attractive and an interesting alternative to the ubiquitous Chardonnay. 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.

The grapes for this wine are harvested manually and go through a selective sorting process to ensure that only the best quality grapes are used in the winemaking process.  The wine is fermented in both stainless steel (70%) and wood (30%).  It then spends 6 months on its fine lees before being bottled.

This wine is fragrant, with aromas that are reminiscent of almond and peach blossom. The palate is wonderfully smooth with a silky textured balance of dried apricot fruit and fresh, apply acidity.

This wine is a particularly good match for fish and also works well with smoked ham dishes.  It also compliments slightly spicy dishes as well as traditional Mediterranean cuisine.

Château La Verrerie Luberon Blanc 2015 (1x 75cl)

Awarded 87 points and Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their August 2017 edition review of Southern Rhone Whites (see blue link below)

Chateau la Verrerie 2015 - Aug 2017 Decanter review

Château La Verrerie is located in the Lubéron appellation. Jean-Louis Descours fell in love with Château La Verrerie in 1981, when he was looking at retirement estates. As a result, he purchased the 20 hectare estate and along with his son Gérard, brought it back to winemaking life. A new winery was constructed and more vineyards were acquired with the sole ambition to make a great wine. Their first vintage was released in 1985. Today, the grandson of Jean-Louis runs the estate with Olivier Adnot as the winemaker. The Descours family enjoyed their first foray into wine so much that they purchased Charles Heidsieck in 2011, when it became available for sale.

The domaine has 48 hectares of vineyard and about 70% of the production is red, 20% rosé and 10% white. Seven hectares are dedicated to Roussanne, Clairette, Grenache and Bourboulenc and 1.85 hectares located in IGP Vaucluse are planted with Viognier. The winery has recently completed its organic conversion and is certified organic from the 2013 vintage.

At the winery, the grapes were gently pressed and fermented at low temperature (16°C) to minimise the extraction of phenolics. The wine was then fermented in a combination of stainless steel and French oak casks in order to preserve the primary fruit while also adding body to the wine. The wine finally stayed on its lees for four months in stainless-steel tanks before bottling.

This wine has an appealing golden straw-yellow colour with silver-green hues. Aromas of peach, apricots and Rainier cherries on the nose, followed by precise notes of acacia and honey. On the palate, the wine is full and lush, reflecting the fruit and floral tones of the nose.

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 Reynaud Crozes Hermitage Blanc Aux Betises 2014 (1x 75cl)

Shows bright yellow colour with golden hues. The nose is fresh and perfumed with honeysuckle and almond. The palate is full bodied and smooth textured, with cooked apple and stone fruits notes alongside the subtle spiciness of barrel ageing. The finish is long with a light acidity which leaves a refreshing long lasting effect.

Domaine Courbis, Saint-Joseph Blanc 2016 (1x 75cl)

An excellent example of white St Joseph from the Northern Rhône; this is very aromatic, with floral notes combining with ripe peach and a touch of brioche on the nose. Richly textured, but beautifully balanced on the palate with a refreshing finesse on the finish.

£20.65

Domaine Dard Et Ribo Saint Joseph Blanc 2015 (6x75cl)

Pure Roussane that manages to be both rich, creamy with golden honey notes and racey and mineraly at the same time. A real treat. The vineyard is organic and the wine is made with no added sulphur.

More than 40 years after Aime Sabon established Janasse at Courthezon, it is now established as one of the southern Rhone’s finest wine estates, spanning some 80 hectares of vineyards. Now under the control of Christophe Sabon and his sister Isabelle, Janasse’s much-lauded Chateauneuf-du-Papes are a quintessentially modern interpretation of the vineyards’ superlative raw material.

As time has passed they have extended their vineyards as well as buying new plots of land and they now have 25 hectares of land under vine. The vineyard is now certified as organic.
