Three lovely white wines

Domaine Horgelus Colombard-Sauvignon 2015

A lovely mid-weight blend of the Sauvignon and Colombard grapes from the southwest of France, packed full of pungent zingy aromas – lemon, lime, tropical fruit.

Notes of white flowers, citrus and exotic fruits, which continue into the palate finishing with a light and crisp freshness. Perfect as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to fish, shellfish, grilled meats and salads.

About the producer Domaine Horgelus

The Domaine was founded in 1978 by Joseph Le Menn. Originally from Brittany, he was attracted by the charm of the southwest, its gastronomy and its way of life. Today, the property covers 66 hectares of vineyard and is run by his son, Yoan. Yoan comes from the young generation of winemakers who seek to combine modernity and experience. Everything is designed to preserve fully the fruity flavours and freshness of the wines.

Picpoul Cuvée Caroline 2015

Bright and pale yellow wine with very fresh aromas of white flowers, acacia and hawthorn; fresh and saline palate but with a slight roundness for a Picpoul. This is a ‘gourmet’ Picpoul with the perfect body and balance to accompany fish, seafood, white meat in a creamy sauce.

About the producer Domaine Morin Langaran

Overlooking the Bassin de Thau, Domaine Morin Langaran has existed since 1330; at that time it was owned by a religious order, the Order of the Holy Spirit. During the wars of religion, the monks abandoned their property and in 1595 the estate became a family estate. It was in 1966 that the Morin family became owners of the Domain. Albert Morin, the current owner, took from his father and nowadays it is turn of his daughter Caroline, a dynamic young winemaker who tries to express the fabulous terroir of the Domain through wines of great finesse and minerality.

Chemin des Pins Chardonnay 2015

A real crowd pleaser, never underestimate the versatility of Chardonnay. Several parcels of oaked and un-oaked chardonnay blend together to form an easy drinking accompaniment to a wide array of food and occasions.

About the producer Le Verre Gourmand

Le Verre Gourmand has recently launched their ‘Chemin des Pins’ wines.Working with two major producers in the South of France, they have combined their knowledge of French wines and international tastes to create a new range of delicious wines to appeal to a broad cross-section of drinkers.

 

Three delicious Red wines

Manoir Grignon Cabernet Syrah 2015

Rich and velvety with deep flavours of blackberry and chocolate, this wine combines the vanilla-like sweet spice of the oak with the brambly, rich, dark fruit. It is a versatile companion to most red meats and also excellent with cheese.

Bright red in colour, this wine has an intense nose with subtle violet hints and toasted notes. It is smooth and full-bodied on the palate with an exceptional length.

About the producer LGI Wines

This wine is made by leading international winemaker, Xavier Roger, who is based in Carassone in the South of France. Xavier specialises in making modern ‘international’ styles of wine in France—wines that can be enjoyed with or without food. It is the limiting gravel soil and the naturally low yielding which are the perfect conditions of the Languedoc-Roussillon region for producing rich, concentrated, ripe grapes.

Gran Fabrica Gran Reserva 2006

We like to source our wines from France but this Spanish red was just too good to resist!

Smooth and concentrated with ripe blackberry fruit flavours together with a hint of vanilla. This wine offers a fragrant bouquet of Asian spices, violets and cherry fruits. An excellent match for truffles, mature cheese, wild game and roast lamb.

About the producer Bodegas Paniza

The vineyards of Bodegas Paniza occupy around 2500 hectares of the up-and-coming region of Cariñena, close to the city of Zaragoza in northeastern Spain. Being the highest vineyards in the area at 850 metres above sea level, they experience cooler-than-average temperatures in the summer and, along with the dry continental climate, this combination helps to create important temperature differences, which results in excellent concentration of colour, sugars, flavour and aromas.

Chemin des Pins Malbec 2015

Soft, fruity and incredibly versatile, the Malbec grape (when made in a more modern style such as this) produces wines with ripe brambly flavours. But there’s a bright freshness in this wine, too, along with an enveloping smoothness. Beef, duck breast, hearty soups, charcuterie—or just enjoy with some peanuts before you sit down for dinner. Truly a great all-rounder!
