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...

Domaine Fontanel

Domaine Fontanel Tautavel, France Things have changed at Domaine Fontanel, but with a sense of continuity. Elodie and Matthieu Collet bought the domaine from Pierre and Marie-Claude Fontaneil in 2017 and have already made a name for themselves, being elected no less than Vignerons de l'Année (Roussillon) du Guide Hachette 2019. After both graduating as agricultural engineers in...

Grenache / Garnacha

Grenache / Garnacha  Grenache grows well in hot, dry regions, though it can develop very high (15 degrees+) alcohol. As such it is grown principally in Southern France and Spain (as Garnacha).

Domaine Fontanel, Hominus Sapanius, IGP Cotes Catalanes, Rouge 2019

From young vines of Syrah and Grenache, plus a little Mourvédre, grown in hot, dry and windy mountain vineyards near Tautavel (so it could actually be labelled as Côte du Roussillon Villages). This long-term favourite here has been repackaged into a Burgundy shaped bottle and the label features a brightly coloured image of what looks like finger puppets or happy ghosts. these jolly figures are tenuously linked to Tautavel's ancient history of human habitation. 

Whatever the intention, this vintage is delicious, a terrific introduction to the classic Roussillon style; it has great depth of colour; cherry and herbal aromas with a roasted note; and delivers a lively gush of black cherry and brambly fruit. There's a lovely cool black fruit profile, tinged with black olive tapenade, and hinting at that distinctive Roussillon tarry note. So much character, proper grip and all in balance; will drink superbly with a barbeque but as good for any red meat. Now-2023

Absolutely loving the sun case, what a great way to be introduced to new wines.

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.
