Marcel Martin Touraine Sauvignon La Perclaire 2015 (1x 75cl)

Expressive Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire showing exotic fruits on the nose. Great alternative to New World Sauvignon Blanc or Sancerre.

Millet Sancerre 2016 (1x 75cl)

The wine has an intensely aromatic nose of leaves, herbs and minerals. It has fresh acidity and is dry and fruity with a flinty quality.

Millet Sancerre Cuvee Insolite 2015 (1x 75cl)

Pronounced, expressive nose of green fruits, fresh cut grass and minerals. The palate is clean and ultra crisp; medium bodied and packed with greengage, lime and gooseberry fruit. The finish is clean, showing a real sense of place through its minerality.

Muscadet ‘Origine du Haut Bourg’ 2006 (1x75cl)


Awarded 95 points and a rare Outstanding status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their June 2017 edition review of extended lees-aged Muscadet (see blue link below).


Origine du Haut Bourg, Muscadet 2006  - June 2017 Decanter review


Think Muscadet? Think thin, bland, nondescript, green and acidic? Think again…!


This is – absolutely - no normal Muscadet.  The Haut Bourg has seen a quality of winemaking seldom seen in the Nantais, one more typical of the winemakers of Burgundy’s Cote de Beaune.


Although made from Muscadet’s usual Melon de Bourgogne, there all similarities with everyday Muscadet cease. The grapes stem from old vines – a staggering 70 years in age – but the true standout feature is the ten years (yes, ten) that it spends on its fine lees (finer yeast deposits) after fermentation (with battonage) before bottling. Hence, lest you be confused, the 2006 vintage – this only went into glass in July 2016. The body, depth and finish of the wine are substantial, it has a strong autolytic appeal and the acidity and bite are well and appealingly ‘tamed’, yet the wine retains the inherent freshness of a Muscadet. It has a rich gold colour, while the fruit flavours are more tropical (ripe pineapple) and stone (apricot) than Muscadet’s usual green apple/citrus and there is an attractive mineral tang. The lees time creates a very stable wine, and this will comfortably keep five years (and develop further flavour) before drinking.


Oisly Et Thesee Sauvignon de Touraine `Vallée des Reines` 2016 (6x 75cl)

This Touraine Sauvignon Blanc offers great precision and clean aromatics. Very crisp and refreshing on the palate, it leaves a pleasant, mouth watering finish with lovely flavours of pear and green apple. The result is an excellent wine that offers superb

Pascal Jolivet Pouilly Fume 2014 (1x 75cl)

A wine with dazzling character high minerality. Rich elegant and full of finesse. Food Matching Seafood crustacea fish and goats cheese will match wonderfully with this classic Sauvignon wine.

Pascal Jolivet Pouilly Fume 2015 (1x75cl)

A wine with dazzling character high minerality. Rich elegant and full of finesse. Food Matching Seafood crustacea fish and goats cheese will match wonderfully with this classic Sauvignon wine.

Pascal Jolivet Pouilly-Fume Indigene 2012 (1x 75cl)

An intriguing Sauvignon Blanc, with an attractive mouth-feel thanks to the lees aging. Rich in texture and complexity, this wine also has a purity of fruit, pronounced minerality and concentration.

Pascal Jolivet Sancerre Blanc 2015 (1x75cl)

Light thyme and lime notes mingle here, with a flicker of flint on the tangy, high-toned finish.

Paul Buisse Pouilly Fume 2014 (1x 75cl)

It is a fragrant and refreshing aromatic wine, with white fruit and acacia flower aromas, round and slightly creamy in mouth, with a delicate “smoky” tint.

Paul Thomas Sancerre 2015 (1x75cl)

This Sancerre Blanc is a wine of exotic fruit and citrus aromas; subtle yet powerful.


Roger Pabiot Pouilly-Fumé Les Champs 2015 (1x 75cl)

There’s no getting away from it: Sauvignon Blanc has been every bit as much the rage in 2016, courtesy of our ever-productive and aromatic Kiwi friends. For those addicted to that undiluted Marlborough hit, we say, by all means, stick with what you love and we can help you with that. But for those NZSB fans curious to venture out a little, for Francophiles and for those who already know they like their Sauvi Blanc restrained just a little, the classics of the Loire – Sancerre, Menetou-Salon and Pouilly-Fumé – cannot be recommended highly enough. This is among the best of the bunch. It has loads of fresh, herbaceous fruit with a hint of liquorice on the nose. In the mouth, there are the usual delicious Sauvignon Blanc characteristics with citrus and gooseberry flavours, all very elegantly balanced here. As a great Franco-Scottish winter fusion, try it with Cullen Skink!

Saumur Blanc La Cabriole 2016 (6x 75cl)

Aromas of honey and honeysuckle can be found on the nose, on the palate it is light, dry and crisp, with well balanced acidity and a long lingering finish of quince, melon and honeydew. Best drunk young.

Sebastien Vaillant Valencay 2016 (6x 75cl)

Light lemon in colour with a lovely grassy, citrus nose showing plenty of zesty Sauvignon Blanc aroma. On the palate, it has great balance with racy acidity that is rounded out by the richer Chardonnay. Creamy but still very lively, with a mineral note on the finish.

Sylvain Gaudron Vouvray Demi-Sec 2014 (1x75cl)

Very pale lemon yellow colour. Hints of honey and fresh hay typical of Chenin. Chalky minerality. Backbone of high acidity keeping the wine taut, energetic and fresh, but rounded out with the merest hint of sweetness.
