What’s going on now….What’s coming up



A Champagne and Regional French Reds

From tastings to date it looks as though the 2008 vintage in Champagne has produced elegant and delicious wines. We’re offering a fascinating Blanc de Blancs from a top “leftfield” producer. This will take you there. 




Fabien Jouves taps off a sample


And Cahors, long a source of rustic, chewy red wines now has a new, biodynamic champion in the shape of Fabien Jouves. Exploiting the highest vineyards of the appellation, Fabien is making wines of enormous class. You can find them here.


2014 Bordeaux

The campaign’s end draws ever closer. The 2014 harvest produced fresh and really rather beautiful wines. Click here to go to the offer.
