Le Petit Pont Rose, IGP Pays d'Oc, 2021

We sell far more of the Petit Pont Rosé than we do of the equivalent white and red added together - that's how good this honest rosé is. From Grenache and Cinsault, in the Provençale style, pale, light and refreshing, it offers a scent of red berries and a pretty mouthful of strawberry and cranberry fruit, with a crisp finish. Nothing complicated, just a well-made, dry rosé perfect for regular consumption. Now-2023

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...

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). It is usually blended with other varieties in the Southern Rhône and Languedoc (Syrah, Mourvedre, Carignan, Cinsaut and others).

La Combe Saint-Paul, Les Amandiers, Rosé, IGP Pays d’Oc, 2021

From a blend of Grenache, Mourvèdre, Syrah. Very pale salmon hue. Perfume of redcurrant and raspberry. Subtle, understated and pure, with a hint of cranberry. Really quite sophisticated – why one earth didn’t we ship this delicious rosé from one of our top growers before? Now-2023.

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....

Ferry Lacombe, Mystere, Rose, IGP Mediterranee, 2021

This is our third vintage of the Mystère Rosé and it is as delicious as ever. It’s a blend of 80% Grenache Noir and 20% Grenache Blanc, a slight change on the previous vintage. Vibrant and moreish, with notes of grapefruit and flat peach. Incredibly refreshing and perfect for quaffing al fresco. Now-2023.

Domaine des Forges, Rose de Loire, 2021

A dry rosé made from 100% Grolleau, given a slow, gentle pressing in a pneumatic press - arguably a better way to make quality rosé than bleeding off a tank of red wine. Warm pink. This has a charming perfume of crushed red fruits; and a subtle flavour of fraises des bois and ripe red cherries. Fresh and clean, excellent as an aperitif or for a cold lunch - and note the lowish alcohol level too. Now-2023

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...

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.

Chateau Ferry Lacombe, Naos, Cotes de Provence Rose, 2021

Naos is a Greek temple or shrine. The Pinot family, who run this Château in the Vallée de l’Arc near St Maximin-la-Ste-Baume, like Greek names for their wines, perhaps because their vineyards lie in the foothills of Mont Olympe (819m.). This is one of their best, from 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah grown on argilo-calcaire soils. Pure and bright salmon pink in appearance. There is a delicious minerality to the wine. Generous citrus and ripe berry fruit. The finish is very long and there is...

Les Quatre Tours, Coteaux d'Aix en Provence Rose, Classique, 2021

The 2021 growing season was long and warm, with temperatures remaining stable, giving a wine of wonderful balance and freshness. Based on Grenache, there is pretty red fruit, with hints of stone fruit and blossom. Very pale pink, classic Provence refinement. Now-2023
