Jérémie Huchet, Muscadet, Les Quinze Hommées, 2019

One of Jérémie's "parcellaires", organically farmed, single vineyard wines, from vines in meagre sandy and stony soils over granite bedrock - known as the granite of Clisson. This is so exciting - ripe and rounded, but also with a mineral vein, almost an effervescent bite. Intense. Now-2023

Domaine de l'Aumonier, Touraine Sauvignon, 2019

From organically farmed vines, this is a long-established best-seller here, admired for its overt fruitiness, which is particularly pronounced in the hot 2019 vintage. Well delineated ripe citrus with more tropical fruit hints. Makes a relaxing aperitif. Now-2021

Cherrier Père et fils, Sancerre, 2020

The latest vintage of this Loire classic from the Cherrier family in Verdigny is intense and powerful – concentrated by the unusual summer heat. Smelling of citrus zest, it’s lemony but shows hints of tangerine. A full-flavoured mid palate gives way to a dry and steely finish. Now-2023

Forges, Anjou Blanc, L'Audace, 2019

This is a wine from a humble appellation but ambitiously crafted: the vineyard is managed for low yields and quality, with short pruning, debudding, a thinning of the harvest and canopy management to expose the bunches to the sun - and then the grapes are picked at perfect ripeness in several passages through the vines. It's also 100% Chenin (when most Anjou Blanc includes up to 20% Chardonnay or Sauvignon), barrel-fermented and inspiringly full flavoured - bittersweet Seville oranges....

Domaine de la Guilloterie, Saumur-Champigny, Tradition, 2018

Unoaked, enticingly dramatic purple, with a perfume made up of berries and roses, this is richly black-fruited, silky, with attractive chalky and leafy hints. Long and complete, a winner again. A match made in heaven for roast ham. Now-2022Saumur-Champigny is a very fashionable appellation in France, leading to price inflation, but it is still possible to find value. This is the Duveau family's principal wine at Guilloterie.

Cabernet Franc

Cabernet Francis a parent of Cabernet Sauvignon.

A cross of it with Sauvignon Blanc resulted in Cabernet Sauvignon. Cabernet Franc tends to be softer and has less tannins than Cabernet Sauvignon, although the two can be difficult to distinguish. Many of the red wines of the Loire are primarily Cabernet Franc.

Our favourite wine merchant never fails to delight. Delicious wines at every price point - including a few gems below £10 in our favourites list. We’ve really enjoyed the sun case as an easy way to be introduced to new wines which we’ve then reordered. Friendly informative service completes the package.
