Francis Blanchet, Pouilly-Fumé, Les Pernets, 2019

The Blanchet's wine is so authentic, true to the appellation, with real bite and stony character, and always at a very fair price. You can tell 2019 is a warm vitnage - this is rounded and ready, showing ripe grapefruit and floral notes over a mineral acid thread. Satiny, fresh and bone dry on the finish. Pair with anything from simply prepared white fish to smoked salmon or eel. Now-2023

Cherrier Père et fils, Sancerre, L'Essentiel, 2019

L’Essentiel is a selection from a vineyard farmed bio-dynamically, made naturally, left for an extended time on its lees and then bottled without filtration. Explosively open scent of ripe citrus and white flowers; and then an exotically flavoured mouthful of greengages, grapefruit and orchard fruits. In some ways akin to a very lightly oaked white Bordeaux, this is a fascinating and exciting bottle. Now-2023

Domaine de la Guilloterie, Saumur Blanc, Les Perruches, 2018

We thought the last vintage of this barrel-fermented Saumur Blanc from 50 year old vines was impressive, but the 2018 is a step up. It's aged in egg-shaped tanks, good for the distribution of the fine lees. Lovely scent of honey and spring white blossom. This builds expansively on the palate, with notes of mandarins and stone fruit. There's an incisive minerally vein too. Now-2022

Forges, Savennières, Clos du Papillon, 2019

From the family's three Savennières, this year we chose the Clos du Papillon, from a celebrated south and south-east facing vineyard shared only by Closel and Baumard. Here there's sand and clay sprinkled with varied volcanic stones and plenty of schist. That favourable exposure, 30-45 year old vines, a hot summer and careful picking in successive passes through the vines have delivered a really ripe and powerful example.

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.
