  1. FP Branco by Filipa Pato Portuguese Wine

    FP Branco by Filipa Pato 2015

    £13.00

    £13.00

    Luis Pato is one of Portugal's leading winemakers. Comparing him to Darth Vader seems cruel, but the force is very strong with his offspring. His daughter, the rebellious Princess Filipa Pato produces the FP Branco using Bical and Arinto (indigenous Portuguese grape varieties, not moons of Tatooine).

    It cuts a line as clean as a lightsaber and explodes on the palate like a proton torpedo in a Death Star exhaust vent. Please note Filipa isn't an actual princess and has no affiliation with George Lucas. However, judging by this wine she'll soon become as legendary as Star Wars.

  2. Frog's Leap Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 - Magnum

    Frog's Leap Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 - Magnum

    £74.00

    £74.00

    One small leap for a frog. One quantum leap for winekind!' uttered Veal Winestrong as he sipped red wine made from vineyards in Rutherford. This area is one of the best places in California's Napa valley for making Cabernet Sauvignon. As velvety and satisfying as Cabernets from Coonawarra. Rivaling the finesse and quality of the left bank reds of Bordeaux. All fastened into in a magnum ready for take off- no need to radio Ground Control for a second bottle.

  3. Frog's Leap Cabernet Sauvignon American Wine

    Frog's Leap Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

    £38.00

    £38.00

    If you want a proper pork pie, you get it from Melton Mowbray. If you want a handmade alpaca-wool scarf, you get it from Peru. If you want a world-class Cabernet Sauvignon, you go the Médoc in Bordeaux, Coonawarra in Australia or Rutherford Bench in the Napa Valley. OK there are many other places too, but these names stand as benchmarks of quality. Frog's Leap's founder John Williams wanted a piece of the Rutherford pie and, following a decade-long pursuit, by Jove he got it. Now that he has it, he is seriously making the most out of it. Topped up with Cabernet Franc and Merlot, this Cabernet Sauvignon has the gorgeous 'Rutherford Rust' minerality, earthy warmth and intensity that make this region's wines so desirable.

  4. Frunza Pinot Grigio White Wine

    Frunza Pinot Grigio 2016

    £7.75

    £7.75

    Over recent years Pinot Grigio has become the definitive Italian grape for white wine, and by common consent the best Italian PGs come from the North East of that country, and the further North and East you go, the better they get. So what happens if you carry on travelling North and East beyond Italy's borders?

    Well, eventually - and very roughly - you get to Romania, where not only do you find terrific Pinot Grigio wines, but you find it at a terrific Romanian price. Well, it certainly stands to reason, but does it stand up to a taste test? Oh yes, oh yes it does.

  5. Frunza Pinot Noir Romanian Red Wine

    Frunza Pinot Noir 2016

    £7.75

    £7.75

    A Pinot Noir, at this price? From Romania? That's got to be rubbish, hasn't it? Or it's got to come with a catch. We have to admit, that's what we thought when we first got this little number in. So we cracked open a bottle straight away to prove ourselves right.

    And thank Bacchus we did: far from being rubbish, it was indeed a total bargain, and there was no catch - this is budget wine that's not just good for the money, it's just plain good. Full, rich and juicy. Down with prejudice! Up with Romanian Pinot Noir!

  6. Gaia Estate Notios Greek Red Wine 2014

    Gaia Estate Notios Red 2015

    £12.75

    £12.75

    Well it winds from Levidi to Nemea/More than 50 kilometres all the way/Get your kicks on GR66! OK, perhaps it doesn't have the same ring as Chuck Berry's Route 66, we'll grant you, but if you do take that Peloponnese trip and turn off GR66, you'll end up in Gaia Estate's winery in gorgeous Koutsi, Nemea.

    It's every bit as pretty as Oklahoma City and, while you're there you can get hip to this gorgeously elegant, red-berried and velvet-lined Agiorgitiko and Syrah blend. Or failing that, you could just come and get your kicks - and the wine - in any one of our shops!

  7. Gaia Notios 2014 White Wine Greece

    Gaia Notios White 2016

    £12.75

    £12.75

    Our Northern correspondent writes: 'Notios. It's Greek for The Southerner, apparently. What we have here, then, is Gaia Notios white, a Moschofilero and Roditis blend. 'Ere y'are, pour some in here, cock... Well, it's kind of flowery and lychee-ish on the nose, from the Moschofilero - so far, so Southern - but then the Roditis kicks in on the palate, with smooth but keen lemon flavours that give a bit of backbone to any airy-fairy aromas. 'Appen this could give the South a good name! Mmm, it'd go right nice with a bit of whitebait... Cod, I mean. Cod! Oh no, I'm letting the side down again, our lass is gonna have me guts...'

  8. Gaja Dagromis Barolo Red Wine

    Gaja Dagromis Barolo 2013

    £58.00

    £58.00

    Nick Cave to Kylie Minogue: "Do you know where the wild roses grow, so sweet, scarlet and free?" Well, Angelo Gaja the winemaker seems to have the answer. Just open this bottle, pour a glass and let it breathe for a while.

    Then just enjoy the nose of mixed aromatic herbs & spices underlining the delicate notes of rose, leading to aromas of anise and wild fennel. Drink it with roast beef and it will offer some very generous flavours of berries and a savoury feeling too.

    This is one of the most popular wines from the Piedmont region, don't miss it!

  9. Gavi Miganego White Wine from Italy

    Gavi Miganego 2013

    £7.75

    £7.75

    'Oranges and lemons say the bells of St Clements,' is how the old rhyme goes. The rhyme then proceeds to get extremely dark, terrorising children with threats of heads being chopped off. Which is a shame, because Oranges and Lemons could have made for a nice analogy for Gavi Mignanego, which also says oranges lemons.

    This white wine also says lightly honeyed lemon and apple, although there isn't a set of London bells that rhymes with apple. Do let us know if we're wrong on that one though.

  10. Gavi Produttori del Gavi White Wine Italian

    Gavi Produttori del Gavi 2016

    £9.75

    £9.75

    A daydream-awakening pinch of oneself may be needed when you see the price of this smart little Gavi. However the reality is that we've found another one of those true odd bins that give this company its name. And in this case, one for which the price has worked out particularly favourably.

    This is actually very true to Gavi in the way you'd expect and surprisingly good. Fresh and clean and superbly balanced at just 11% alcohol, this delicate wine slips down exceptionally well. The perfect finishing touch to a relaxing evening.

  11. Gewurztraminer Hunawihr French White Wine

    Gewurztraminer Hunawihr 2016

    £13.75

    £13.75

    You may have heard of tea picked by monkeys and coffee defecated by civets. Those are nothing, this is an exotically spiced Gewurztraminer with big fat Turkish Delight and lychee flavours, that's made by Alsatians.

    It's very rare because when it comes to winemaking, Alsatians are easily distracted by other things like licking their fur, catching their tails, chasing postmen and watching The Littlest Hobo. So grab it quick, it can't stay for long, just turn around and it's gone again.

  12. Giesen Brothers Pinot Noir New Zealand Red Wine

    Giesen Brothers Pinot Noir 2013

    £16.50

    £16.50

    It is a brave and noble thing to travel half way around the world and set up a winery, but that is exactly what brothers Alex, Theo and Marcel Giesen did in the 1980s. Thirty years later and these intrepid brothers have not only survived the trip from Germany to New Zealand, but they have conquered. In evolutionary terms, this family is winning.

    Why are they so successful? For wines like this Pinot Noir, with its elegant, silky, tannins, lifted aromas of violet and blueberry and notes of warm, freshly turned earth and mushrooms. That's one gene pool we want to be part of.

  13. Serabel Gigondas Red Wine France

    Gigondas Dom Des Fontnobles 2014

    £18.00

    £18.00

    The name Gigondas is derived from the Latin 'Jocunditas', meaning great enjoyment and pleasure. What more appropriate name could there be for a place dedicated to the production of wine?

    And when that place is in the southern Rhône and producing wines that rival the best of those of its more celebrated near neighbour, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, at prices that even your bank manager might see as cause for celebration, then it's not hard to see where the great enjoyment and pleasure might be derived.

    "Fiat bonis revolvet", as the Romans might have said... (That's 'let the good times roll' in Latin)

  14. Glaetzer Amon-Ra Shiraz 2013 Australian Red Wine

    Glaetzer Amon-Ra Shiraz 2013

    £67.00

    £67.00

    Amon-Ra: Powerful, compelling, almighty and worshiped in his home country and numerous places the world over.

    Now to play a guessing game, were we referring to the Egyptian 'King of Gods' or Ben Glaetzer's succulent red wine? (Hint: it was both!)

    With supremely rich aromas and flavours of dark stone fruits, hints of coffee, blackberries and a touch of cracked pepper, this dark purple Shiraz truly lives up to its name. The wines brooding complexity and multi-layered structure is simply captivating in an elegant drink that's fit for a Deity.

  15. Glaetzer Bishop Shiraz

    Glaetzer Bishop Shiraz 2014

    £28.00

    £28.00

    This wine was so named because it can only move diagonally. We therefore recommend that when setting the table, the wine be placed in the centre with diners arranged obliquely to it. Which should also maintain the harmony, because this is a quite remarkable drop from the Aussie master Ben Glaetzer. Intense, complex and with impressive cellaring potential this red is always in severe demand. Our bestseller for the Aussie crowd when sending special gifts to their nearest and dearest in the UK, this Bishop has the stamp of approval of a whole nation.

  16. Glaetzer Wallace Shiraz Grenache Australia

    Glaetzer Wallace Shiraz Grenache 2015

    £20.00

    £20.00

    Braveheart taught us that Wallace was a pint sized, foul mouthed Australian with limited skills as a face painter. Although Ben Glaetzer's Wallace is also Australian, it differs in almost every way from its rabble rousing namesake.

    It is monumental in stature, quite charming in the mouth and, because of its deep rich colour, will paint your face with quite a serious red wine moustache.

    Like Braveheart, this wine is good to go but it also has a fair bit of staying power if you fancy coming back to it in a few years.

  17. Glorioso Rioja Crianza Red Wine Spain

    Glorioso Rioja Crianza 2014

    £11.00

    £11.00

    A Rioja made for meal times! This red wine might just be the food-match ace in the Rioja suit.

  18. Gonzalez Byass 'Apostoles' Palo Cortado VORS 30 Year Old Solera NV

    Gonzalez Byass 'Apostoles' VORS 30 Year Old Solera NV

    £23.00

    £23.00

    If you're of a certain age you may remember a time when Cream Sherries ruled Britannia. You couldn't step into any licensed premises without seeing someone sipping a thick brown liquid out of a weird eggcup sized wine glass, sophisticated ay? If you're of a different age, that may have sounded like your Grandad regaling you with tales of wind-up televisions or whatever. Apostles is of the same idea as Cream Sherry, in that an aged sherry is lightly sweetened but that's really where the comparison end. A graceful Palo Cortado is blended with a powerful Pedro Ximenez and aged for more than 30 years. The wine is breath-taking, with concentrated dried fruit aromas combing with notes of caramel and mature wood. If wines like this keep coming over from Jerez, there's a good chance Sherry will conquer the UK once more.

  19. Gonzalez Byass Del Duque Amontillado Sherry 30 Year Old

    Gonzalez Byass Del Duque Amontillado Sherry 30 Year Old - Half Bottle 375ml

    £23.00

    £23.00

    Sometimes we really wonder how certain winemaking techniques were arrived at. Sherry making techniques in particular.

    After fortifying the wine to halt the alcoholic fermentation and keep it sweet (fair enough), someone must have then thought, 'what if we let it sit in a wooden tub for, maybe, five, no no... ten, sod it make that thirty years. Yup, then let's see what it tastes like then'.

    Well, these bonkers Andalusians, whoever they are, were obviously geniuses with much acumen, as this is precisely the way to produce moreish, almost umami-tasting Amontillado like this.

    The 30 years in American oak casks has transformed the humble Palomino grape into an unctuous, vanilla, cedar and fig-flavour bonanza of a Sherry. Three cheers for the vinous vanguard!

  20. Gonzalez Byass Elegante Fino Dry Sherry

    Gonzalez Byass Elegante Fino Dry Sherry

    £6.99

    £6.99

    For a desperately long time Sherry has been the kid sitting alone in the canteen, pairing his corn beef sarnies with a good root up his nose, radiating a forcefield of uncool. Thanks Nan, you ruined Sherry for the rest of us! Or did she? Over the summer that kid has grown 12 inches, had his braces off and his voice has got deep and sexy. Go on son! Sherry's back, rolling out of cocktail and tapas bars alike; be sure that the cool kids are sipping on a chilled Fino... as well as your awesome Nanna. Good lord, drinking fortified wine's a rollercoaster.

  21. Gonzalez Byass Solera 1847, Oloroso Dulce

    Gonzalez Byass Solera 1847 Oloroso Dulce Sherry

    £13.75

    £13.75

    'I'm rich. Rich rich rich,' sung Karen O in The Yeah Yeah Yeah's track 'Rich', from their brilliant 2003 debut album, Fever to Tell. But was Karen sanguinely singing about her financial status, or had she penned lyrics from the perspective of the Solera 1847 Oloroso Dulce?

    We'll leave that question to you, but what we will say is she must have had a very enjoyable time writing the song, because the Solera 1847 is awash with flavours of raisins, vanilla and salty caramel. Let's just hope she had some good cheese, for Pete's sake.

  22. Gonzalez Byass Vina AB Amontillado Seco

    Gonzalez Byass Vina AB Amontillado Seco Sherry

    £13.75

    £13.75

    Rather brilliantly, Antonio Flores, the Master Blender at Gonzales Byass since 1980, was conceived in the room above the Tio Pepe cellar in Jerez.

    A very young Amontillado that has experienced both biological and oxidative ageing. Dry on the palate and there are also hints of the oak with a salty finish.

  23. Granbazan Etiqueta Verde Albarino 2016 Spanish White Wine

    Granbazán Etiqueta Verde Albariño 2016

    £15.50

    £15.50

    Nowadays we have gadgets for all sorts. Scientists have worked out how to do this, how to do that. But centuries ago, knowledge was mysterious. It's little wonder then, they used to think this wine was made by magic.

    Years back, crushing grapes was not a subtle art. Even the diminutive individuals who trod the fruit still managed to smash pips and taint the juice with a tannic edge*. Until Granbazan the Wizard. He designed a system of tanks through which the free run juice descended, filling the air with scents of green apples and lemon; resulting in a wine so complex and smooth no-one could believe it. All the wizard had done, of course, was let gravity do its job. But they didn't now that then, did they?

    *Which is where we get Pipsqueak from. Short, annoying people.

  24. Greywacke Chardonnay 2013 white wine

    Greywacke Chardonnay 2013

    £32.00

    £32.00

    This crisp, dry white wine is a bit like your Grandma. She's generally got something tasty in the oven making the house smell like baked apples, toasted hazelnuts, fig, brioche, pink grapefruit and...meadow hay? (reign it in a bit Mrs. Cropley!)

    She's a classy lady, perhaps a little nutty and has plenty of rich life experiences to share but once you get her going she can go on and on and, well, you get the idea. Just like Grandma's stories, Greywacke Chardonnay has a palate that just keeps going.

  25. Greywacke Wild Sauvignon 2014 White Wine

    Greywacke Wild Sauvignon 2015

    £28.00

    £28.00

    Wild Sauvignon is the rebellious teenager of the Greywacke range. Shouting "you don't know me" at the top of its lungs, this is a white wine that wants you to know it isn't your typical New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.

    With an intricate and textural alternative style, it refuses to conform to the norms. Sit it down and before long it'll open-up with an abundance of almond, white nectarine, melon and blood orange flavours entangled with linseed, tarragon and lightly smoked tea.

  26. Guerrin Pouilly Fuissé Vielles Vignes 2015

    Guerrin Pouilly Fuissé Vielles Vignes 2015

    £20.00

    £20.00

    As well as being thoroughly winsome and peachy, Domaine Guerrin's Pouilly-Fuissé also serves as a history lesson in a glass. The vines of the Guerrin vineyards are grown on land that dates back to the Mesozoic period and we can't half tell. It is packed with the chalky, cool minerality from its pre-historic roots, but you don't have to be a history buff to appreciate its elegance and beautifully balanced flavours. It is a wonderfully textured white Burgundy with notes of hazelnuts and white peach, which will age gracefully. Essentially, don't listen to the face cream adverts; embrace the signs of age with open arms.

  27. Hacienda del Carmen Arlanza 2015 Red Wine Spain

    Hacienda del Carmen Arlanza 2015

    £14.00

    £14.00

    A Bright cherry red tempranillo with violet tones. Perfumed with black berries and violets leaving an elegant lingering on the palate rich with black cherries and silky tannins.

  28. Heartland Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 Red Wine

    Heartland Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

    £14.50

    £14.50

    South and East of Adelaide down the coast of South Australia lie the regions of Langhorne Creek and Limestone Coast, where the coastal climate, cooling breezes and rare and peculiarly wine friendly geology combine with Aussie sunshine to create ideal conditions for growing Cabernet Sauvignon grapes and turning them into truly exceptional wine.

    Heartland was set up by a small group of luminaries, led by star winemaker Ben Glaetzer from the better known Barossa Valley region, specifically to do just that. A plan as clear, simple and effective as the classically minimalist label on the bottle. One from the heart(land).

  29. Heartland Directors' Cut Shiraz

    Heartland Directors' Cut Shiraz 2013

    £22.00

    £22.00

    According to winemaker Ben Glaetzer, in films, the 'director's cut' is regarded as the definitive version, subject to no compromises. Although some critics say it represents an exercise in self-indulgence, frankly, we don't really give a damn... What is fine wine, after all but an extremely enjoyable indulgence? So if winemakers as talented as Glaetzer and his co-Directors want to make no compromise in presenting us with this definitive version of a really very fine Aussie shiraz, you won't find us complaining...

  30. Heartland Dolcetto Lagrein Red Wine

    Heartland Dolcetto Lagrein 2013

    £14.50

    £14.50

    This red is fast attaining cult status in our range. Ben Glaetzer, the winemaker behind this bright, perfumed and sensuous wine, is a talented little so-and-so, making wines to huge acclaim - and he's only in his thirties!

    This would normally be sickening behaviour and one would happily dismiss him for being a precocious twerp. The unfortunate thing is, he's a genuinely nice, down to earth, funny guy. Hmm. He must have a fault though... maybe an embarrassing laugh? We live in hope.

  31. Henry Fessy Beaujolais-Villages

    Henry Fessy Beaujolais-Villages 2015

    £10.50

    £10.50

    Well-coloured with relatively high acidity, this is a vivacious Beaujolais abundant with notes of freshly picked berries and traditional boiled sweets.

    With an exceptional amount of personality for a Beaujolais Villages, this particular character has a frank, fresh flavour, and a real liveliness on the palate which makes an ideal drinking partner for any occasion! If you're a lighter wine fan and haven't given Beaujolais a try for a while then start here.

  32. Hermanos Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 Argentina Red Wine

    Hermanos Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

    Now £11.75

    Was £12.75

    £11.75

    This Cabernet Sauvignon was created in the lofty heights of the Cafayate Valley in the remote Salta region of Argentina. Sounds like a good location for a secret base for a league of superheroes. Lucky for us the two brothers who made this red are not muscle bound meat heads with loads of gadgets and outlandish wardrobes.

    Rafael and Osvaldo Domingo are our kind of heroes- taking grapes and shaping them into amazing wine. Rippling with raspberries, cocoa, and spices. This is the kinda full-bodied wine that'll land on your balcony dressed in red with a masterplan to save the world, fix everything in town and make sure you're safely tucked in bed before midnight.

  33. Homme de Pays Syrah 2013

    Homme de Pays Syrah 2013

    £9.00

    £9.00

    Homme de Pays or the 'Man of the Village' if you prefer. He's very much like a man about town but on a significantly more localised area. His lawn bowls team are 49 games undefeated, his haybales are perfectly circular and of course his Syrah is the talk of the church fete. Why shouldn't it be? It's packed full of wonderful aromas like sweet cassis, bilberries, mocha and black pepper. We're not sure who this mystery homme is but we doth our flat-cap to him!

  34. Huber Auslese Riesling

    Huber Auslese Riesling 2013

    Now £12.00

    Was £14.00

    £12.00

    Bright yellowish green, hints of strawflowers and hay, very typical varietal character on the nose; dense with notes of caramel; dainty wooden nuances reveal traces of spice, clove cinnamon. This extraordinarily intense offering boasts with such an enormously sweet mellowness. Gorgeously focused and clean.

  35. Huber Grüner Veltliner Nussdorfer 2015 Austrian White Wine

    Huber Grüner Veltliner Nussdorfer 2015

    £12.00

    £12.00

    We think they should scrap the 'H' and just call this delectable white wine 'Uber' instead. No, it's nothing to do with the handy transport service. It's because this yellowy-green drop of drink is a supreme example of Grüner Veltliner. It shows outstanding peppery, herbal and yellow-fruit driven aromas and flavours so typical of the variety whilst presenting a dense and complex yet elegant palate.

    Ok, so it may be a bit much for us to ask Markus to change his name but that won't stop us shouting about how (H)uber-cool his wines are!

  36. Huber Riesling Eiswine 37.5cl

    Huber Riesling Eiswein 2016 - Half Bottle - 375ml

    £28.00

    £28.00

    The Austrians are well known for their practical jokes, so it's little surprise everyone thought Markus was jesting when he suggested they went out to pick grapes. It was New Years' Eve for pity's sake! Freezing outside! Surely, he was drunk...

    But no! Markus was serious. Out they went, dressed to the nines, not finding it very funny at all. The thermometer read minus 11. Even the grapes were frozen. Well, the excess water in them was, leaving the flavours there for the taking. Caramel and spice, a dainty hint of meadow flowers, locked up since Spring. Extraordinary. See what you achieve when you have a sense of Huber?

  37. Huber Riesling Nussdorfer 2014

    Huber Riesling Nussdorfer 2016

    £12.00

    £12.00

    Chalk. It's good stuff. Back in the halcyon days before white boards, school kids relied on chalk to learn about isosceles triangles and other incredibly forgettable items of information. However, chalk is responsible for something else that is much more memorable.

    Yes, the chalk hills of the Traisental in northern Austria give Markus Huber's Riesling vines a healthy work out as they plunge deeper in the soil in search of water. Along the way, they pick up characterful mineral qualities, which appear alongside the citrus and apricot notes in the final wine and chalk up another victory for this most learned of winemakers. 10/10.

  38. IGP Cotes De Thongues Rosé Wine 2016 Vintage

    IIGP Cotes De Thongues Rosé "Le Fil A Tongs" 2016

    £8.50

    £8.50

    This delicate Rosé wine is composed of a mixture of Grenache and Cinsault grapes to create its wonderful flavours. On the nose it has intricate floral notes and pink grapefruit confer on this vintage freshness and elegance.

  39. Incienso Malbec Red Wine Argentina

    Incienso Malbec 2014

    £7.50

    £7.50

    You can do a lot with £7.50. You could buy some hair dye and go strawberry blonde. You could buy a decent quality ball point pen. Or! You could buy yourself a taste of the Argentine countryside, fresh blackberries and an oomph of hot spice from the gusty plains at the foot of the Andes. And, whilst you can't beat a high quality biro, we'd take the wine any day. Obvz.

  40. Intellego Syrah 2015

    Intellego Syrah 2015

    £18.50

    £18.50

    Given how much wine the Ancient Greeks got through it's no wonder they came up with some good ideas. Of course, it's hard to say whether they did so much thinking because they had wine, or whether thinking led them to making wine. Either way, it's long been considered that contemplation is key to invention, and what better way to mull something over than with a glass in hand?

    It was in just such a circumstance that Swartland winemaker Jurgen had a rather clever thought. If two heads are better than one, why not bring together two parcels of the same varietal and see what came about. His Syrah sprang to mind. One from granite soil, the other from iron rich soil. One North East in aspect, the other South East facing. Different attitudes, different foundations. Together, really quite smart.

  41. Janeil Gros Manseng Sauvignon Blanc French White Wine

    Janeil Gros Manseng Sauvignon Blanc 2015

    £8.50

    £8.50

    We know 'Gros Manseng' isn't the nicest name for a grape. In fact it sounds like an unflattering description of a singer. But forget all that: its cleansing acidity and flavours of quince and white blossom make it a top companion for Sauvignon Blanc and more than compensates for its unfortunate moniker.

  42. Jean-Jacques Girard Aloxe-Corton 2013 Red Wine

    Jean-Jacques Girard Aloxe-Corton 2013

    £35.00

    £35.00

    This is why you have to love Burgundy; you can say what you like about the beautiful new world Pinots of Oregon or New Zealand, but do you know when this family began making wine? 1529! Do you know what else was happening in 1529? Henry VIII was trying to negotiate his divorce from Catharine of Aragon! That's right boys and girls, this winery was formed when Henry VIII hadn't even been divorced! Never mind the beheaded, died or the divorced, beheaded, survived. Ann of Cleves was on the cover of Vogue! Greensleeves was top of the chats for the 104th straight week! If Domaine Jean-Jacques Girard can't make a good Pinot there is genuinely no hope for the rest of us. Thankfully they did, here's to 600 years of Burgundian winemakers!

  43. Jean-Jacques Girard Chorey Les Beaune 2013 Red Wine

    Jean-Jacques Girard Chorey Les Beaune 2013

    £24.00

    £24.00

    Do you not think Burgundy has too much good stuff? They've got Dijon mustard, the king of mustards! There's actual mustard seeds mixed in, so they pop in your mouth when you bite down on your mustardy baguette. They have fraggling Pinot Noir! The king of red grapes, just like this little gem; with its intense aromas of mulberry, strawberry, ripe red cherry & seductive spice. It's evident that Kings still rule in this republic... I mean Burgundy was technically a Dukedom but... you get the idea; Pinot Noir: The Duke of red wines just seems to be a disservice.

  44. Jean-Louis Chave Selection 'Mon Coeur' Côtes du Rhône 2014

    Jean-Louis Chave Selection 'Mon Coeur' Côtes du Rhône 2015

    "Unbreak Mon Coeur, say you'll love us again, un-cry these tears..." Thankfully this homage to Toni Braxton is unnecessary as we continue to have access to the wines of Jean-Louis Chave. Hearts would undoubtedly break if we did not, you see, Domaine Jean-Louis Chave is one of the finest producers in the Northern Rhone. 16 generations of wine making has led to mastery of their art. This astonishing experience and expertise is pervasive in this wine. This deliciously ripe Syrah/Grenache blend has a wonderful core of dark, berry fruit supported by a framework of ripe tannin with cooling, granitic notes and a sleek, sophisticated texture. A little less Braxton and a little more Celine Dion as clearly "Mon Coeur will go on!"

    Jean-Luc Colombo's wines provide exceptional quality for every day Rhône drinking. The affectionate nickname for husband, father, winemaker and charismatic figurehead, Jean-Luc, is 'the winemaking wizard of the Rhône Valley' and this sassy, swaggeringly-fruited blend of Clairette Blanche and Rousanne really does feel like it's sprinkled with magic.

    If you're considering a career winemaking, as with many things in life, there are many ways to skin a cat. But a good place to start is in the lab - as it gives you a thorough understanding of the nuts and bolts of the liquid itself - and this is just what Jean-Luc Colombo did.

    But the lab wasn't enough for Jean-Luc, who now roams freely around his vineyard instead, making beautiful, affordable wines like Le Vent Rouge, which has appealing redcurrant and bay leaf aromas and a fresh 'n' silky palate.

    When winemakers make wine, they are painting. They may not wear stripy tops and live bohemian lifestyles, but are artists nonetheless and they take their inspiration and their materials from the land around them.

    In this instance, the materials are the gentle slopes of the southern Rhône, plentiful sun, which provide enough warmth for the grapes to reach ripeness. They then have the after-effects of the Mistral wind, which tears through the northern Rhône and arrives downstream, offering grapes a gentle respite from the Mediterranean sun.

    In the hands of the artists at Jean-Luc Colombo, they turn this palate into a bold, firmly-structured, fine-grained, beauty of a painting.

    We'd really like to talk about this wine. But we'd prefer to do it à la Jean-Luc Picard, of the Star Ship Enterprise, if we may (the winemaker's called Jean-Luc, we're immature, what can we say...)

    Captain's Log, stardate 9357.6. Our destination is Rhône, where our sensors have detected signs of red fruits and gentle spice. Not just that; Spock says there appears to be a tight structure in place. Curious. Nothing has changed in Rhône for generations and their time-honoured traditions make it greatly interesting to us. Wait, they've locked their phasers onto us! Red (wine) alert!
