Mickael Moze-Berthon: Rocher-Gardat, Vieux Chantecaille and Gouprie, Bordeaux, France

Mickael Moze-Berthon makes wonderful wines, densely fruited and well-oaked, from no less than four estates, assembled over seven generations of family growers. His principal wine, is his Rocher-Gardat Montagne Saint-Emilion, from 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc grown on his seven hectares of vines on thinly-soiled, argilo-calcaire slopes. We sold many cases of his splendid 2010 and 2012...

Cabernet Franc

Cabernet Francis a parent of Cabernet Sauvignon.

A cross of it with Sauvignon Blanc resulted in Cabernet Sauvignon. Cabernet Franc tends to be softer and has less tannins than Cabernet Sauvignon, although the two can be difficult to distinguish. Many of the red wines of the Loire are primarily Cabernet Franc.

Vieux Chantecaille, Saint-Emilion 2018

80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, into 50% new oak. Mickael Moze-Berthon has only 1¼ hectares of land within the Saint-Emilion Grand Cru boundary, just across the road from the famed Pomerol property of Le Bon Pasteur, but as his cellar is outside the limits of the St Emilion Grand Cru appellation he can only sell it as Saint-Emilion – so he is delivering wine from a Grand Cru terroir at a modest price. Black chocolate and coconut oak accents over dark fruit: blackberries and black cherries. Intense and harmonious. Decant to drink now. Now-2026

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!

SVS continues to provide an excellent selection of wine from many countries, a vast selection of varieties, and all at a reasonable cost. I have been a customer for over 17 years and I have always enjoyed any wine which I have purchased.
