  • Domaine du Monteillet Cote-Rotie Fortis 2019

    £59.99

    “Cask sample, tasted at the domaine. Dark spice and very juicy fruit, black-olive notes and a charred note. Very dark and brooding – ferrous, with power and density as well as amazing liquorice notes. This expresses 2019 amazingly, rich juicy fruit with tension, spice and power as well as freshness. Drink: 2023-2033. 17.5 points”

  • Domaine La Barroche Chateauneuf-du-Pape Pure 2017

    £91.95

    “The 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Pure is remarkably balanced, fresh and, yes, pure. The layers of raspberry fruit are blemish-free, so intense and concentrated that in other hands they might come across as jammy, but here, they’re fresh and vibrant, backed by a full-bodied palate that’s silky and airy in feel while possessing terrific intensity and depth. It should drink well for 15+ years. Drink: 2019-2035. 97 points

    Winemaker Julien Barrot didn’t seem to mind that yields were down in 2018. “I like vintages like this, where you have good natural balance,” he said. “After June, it was a dream year.” He’s also taken steps to try to find that balance in the vineyard. The domaine stopped performing green harvests in 2015, as the larger crops help promote freshness and lower alcohol levels. Paradoxically in 2017, the naturally low yields allowed the grapes to continue ripening despite the drought-like conditions. “Because of the low yields, we never had blocage in 2017,” Barrot said, contrasting that to the situation in 2003, 2005, 2009 and 2011. Moreover, here at Barroche, the focus is increasingly on detail, rather than power. “We always have plenty of fruit—red fruit, dark fruit—but what is important is to look for the floral qualities.””

  • Herve Souhaut La Souteronne 2020

    £26.99

    “All of the wines here are made from biodynamically grown fruit, produced with whole clusters and semi-carbonic maceration, and bottled without fining or filtration. As such, they always display fresh, spicy character and, occasionally, a hint of funkiness that I seldom find intrusive, much less overbearing. Minimal sulfur is used, so cool storage conditions are a must. I also highly recommend buying the wines as soon after release as possible, lest they hang around in less-than-ideal conditions in a warehouse or on a retailer’s shelf. Consider them highly perishable goods.”
