Carmes de Rieussec, Sauternes, 2011

The second wine of Château Rieussec, named after the Carmes de Langon monks who owned the estate in the 18th century. 85% Semillon, 10% Sauvignon Blanc and a little Muscadelle: moderate oak, splendid richness and general approachability. Scent of preserved lemons and barley sugar. Very sweet, very concentrated, all oranges and caramel, luscious, smooth and fat. Now-2023

Always friendly and helpful-much better than supermarket wines for not much more! The doorstep dozen is brilliant!

I have used Stone, Vine & Sun for a number of years now and have found their advice in seeking wines to my taste most helpful. They have often found some small vineyards that need assistance and have provided excellent wines. I will always look to support my local services where possible, for if we do not they will cease to exist leaving faceless conglomerates. They are always a happy organisation to interact with and their local delivery service works very well.

Great service and fantastic products. We have never had a bad bottle with any of our orders, and I can guarantee your friends will not have the same producers/vintages available at Stone, Vine, & Sun.

As always SVS delivered my recent order next working day with no errors. My only problem with them as a wine merchant is that they regularly send me more mouth watering offers than my budget or my cellar can cope with. My kind of merchant. So many great finds, many from less fashionable (read expensive) regions, but always carefully selected, good value and good of their kind.

Many classic wines plus lots examples from independents practicing natural methods including a good selection from South Africa. The price spectrum includes many delicious wines under £10. An informative website makes ordering simple with rapid delivery. This year I confidently dipped my toe into en Primeur from Burgundy based on advice. They have won many awards and I expect SVS to win many more. Brian from Kent.

This is my all time favourite wine merchant. Innovative in approach, with a wonderful selection of new and old world wines. By far the best delivery service too, even in these straitened times!
