France

France will always occupy a special place in our portfolio, being where it all began for us back in 1983. There is not, and will never be, anywhere quite like France; eccentric, idiosyncratic and unswervingly confident as it is in the ability of ‘terroir’ and tradition to continue to produce the world’s best wine in the face of ever-increasing competition.

The French are immensely proud of their heritage and with a winemaking history stretching back over 2000 years this is hardly a surprise. Yet while many remain close to their roots, the dynamism, passion and energy we find amongst this country’s winemakers is unprecedented and is increasingly reflected in the quality and diversity of the wines. And after thirty-two years we are still astonished by the extent of variety France has to offer.

We are also surprised just how many of France’s best winemaking regions, especially thoseof the Languedoc-Roussillon and the South West, remain oddly undiscovered, and continue in our mission to bring ever more exciting varieties from little known areas to your attention.

  1. Pouilly Fuissé, Domaine J A Ferret

    Fresh, vibrant, almost Champagne-like aroma of green fruit and cream.  Taut and lean: the flavour doesn’t hit you all at once, but rather eases its way across the palate in a controlled, tight, slow release.

  2. Luc Belaire Fantome Rosé

    A dramatically beautiful sparkling rose: a rich, vibrant pink color. A rich red fruit bouquet precedes an elegant palate of strawberry and black currant, resulting in a perfect harmony of aroma, taste, body,and finish: refreshing but not too sweet.

  3. Clos Mireille Rosé, Domaine Ott

    Pale pink appearance with saffrony gold highlights. The powerful, elegant nose combines white fruits and wild strawberry, alongside citrus zest with light cardamom notes. Soft, firm structure in the mouth, balanced by a crispiness with fruity notes and a touch of grapefruit. The smooth, suave finish expresses the complexity of Clos Mireille, as well as its coastal location.

  5. Magnum of Sancerre La Reine Blanche, Domaine J Reverdy

    Double the drinking pleasure!

    Clean, pure notes of white flowers, quince, melon, and white peach are all present in this surprisingly opulent, fleshy, rather exuberant and flamboyant style of Sancerre, which is quite dry but surprisingly plush. Drink it over the next several years.
