La Combe Saint-Paul, Viognier, IGP Pays d'Oc, 2023

As usual this is more on the light, fresh, floral side of Viognier than more obviously weighty or over-ripe examples from the Languedoc. Lime flower perfume. True fresh peach flavour, just a little appealing fat and a good dry finish. As charming as ever, a lovely aperitif. Now-2025

Languedoc-Roussillon

There’s something very complete about our annual offer of wines from the Languedoc and Roussillon: with whites, rosés and reds, and wonderful fortified wines, the Vins Doux Naturels which are such a speciality of the region, there should be something for all tastes. Secondly, there are wines for every budget; at every level we believe these wines continue to offer terrific...

La Combe Saint-Paul

La Clape, France

Paul and Line Maury might be our youngest producers but winemaking runs in the genes.

Paul’s grandparents and great grandparents were winemakers specialising in single varietal wines, and we list his fine examples of Vermentino, Chardonnay and Viognier.

In 2008 Paul came across the opportunity to buy vines on La Clape and create his own domaine....

Consentido, Macabeo, Yecla, 2023

This has rightly become one of our go-to good value whites and it’s again impressive in this latest vintage. Macabeo is the same grape as Viura, the principal ingredient in most white Rioja.
Scent of stone fruit; excitingly ripe and weighty mid-palate of apricots and with more exotic fruit touches and a hint of liquorice. Rounded, interesting and excellent value.  Now-2025

Château Les Combes, Bordeaux Blanc - Sauvignon Semillon, 2022

The addition of about 20% Sémillon adds pleasing fat and moderates the grassy Sauvignon character. Herbaceous aroma. Limey freshness, but also well-rounded and with a custard creaminess. Now-early 2025

Frederic Borderie, Chateaux Les Combes and Les Gravieres de la Brandille, Bordeaux, France

Frederic Borderie, in his late 30s, is one of our stars, making delicious, perfumed whites and a range of reds which he fairly views as the equals - both in quality and longevity - of more expensive wines from grander appellations.

Modestly he ascribes their success to his vineyards being on gravelly river terraces of the Isle river, an underrated terroir with some similarities to the...

Domaine de la Chauvinière, Muscadet Sèvre et Maine sur lie, 2022

Muscadet, grown at the mouth of the Loire (where the climate isn't that dissimilar to Cornwall) is the traditional French accompaniment to Atlantic oysters and other seafood. From low yielding vines on the estate's classic granitic soils - with a little clay. Open, generous mouthful with lemon and pear fruit, crisp and mouthwatering with textbook zest and balance, and a dry, gently saline finish. Now-2025
It is hard to believe when meeting Jérémie Huchet that he has been...

Loire Valley

In early February I undertook our annual visit to the wine fair in Angers, escaping the snow which engulfed much of the UK during that week.

This is the yearly opportunity for the vast majority of vignerons in the Loire valley to show off their latest offerings to the rest of the world. The early season’s weather in 2008 was not kind, with variously frost, hail and torrential...

Great choice of good-value wines in the January sales. The website is really easy to use to make up an order. Delivery, as is often the case, was within 24 hours and, as usual, was well-packed.
