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 interest...

Shiraz / Syrah

Shiraz / Syrah   Powerful, black-fruited, often aged in oak, syrah/Shiraz comes in varying styles but at the top (such as Hermitage) can be spectacular and very long-lived. There is no question that Syrah is now the most fashionable red grape for new plantings in many New World countries, especially South Africa and Chile. Origins       Unknown. Linked by...

We get super excited when Jancis Robinson (or one of her team) write about our wine! Voted the world's most influential wine critic in polls in the US, France and internationally in 2018, Jancis views herself as a wine writer rather than a wine critic. She writes daily for JancisRobinson.com and weekly for the Financial Times. She is founder-editor of The Oxford Companion to Wine,...

La Combe Saint Paul, L'Insoupconne, Languedoc-La Clape, 2016

 85% Syrah with Mourvèdre, given 10 months ageing in a mix of new and 2nd fill barrels - and a very limited production wine. Very youthful: blackcurranty flavours tinged with dark chocolate and savoury notes. With great suavity and length, this brilliantly combines power and finesse. Now-2025

"Heavy bottle from Line and Paul Maury of Salles d'Aude who made the very good La Combe St-Paul Vermentino. La Combe St-Paul is not actually mentioned on the label of this full-bodied red. 85% Syrah with Mourvèdre, given 10 months' ageing in a mix of new and second-fill barrels. Just 2,500 bottles made. Still quite a dark, intense crimson after all this time in bottle. Very luxurious Syrah on the nose. Heady and rich with a leathery and liquorice finish. Some sweetness. Pretty luxurious for the money. Not too hot on the end. Intense Bandol-like end note. Drink 2019-2024 QGV, 16.5/20" Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com, 11th November 2020

Just wanted to say thank you so much for sending my order of 2 x Domaine Begude Rosé to my son and daughter-in-law - I couldn't believe that they received it within a day of my placing the order with you. That is IMPRESSIVE, especially given the current trying times.
