  • Charvin Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc 2017

    £53.49

    “Pale gold. Intense, mineral-accented Meyer lemon and pear scents show excellent clarity and are complemented by hints of fennel and iodine. Minerally and precise on the palate, offering impressively concentrated citrus and orchard fruit flavors and deeper suggestions of honeydew melon and sweet butter that emerge on the back half. Shows real energy and finishes minerally and very long, with a suave floral nuance hanging on. Drinking window: 2022-2029. 93 points”

  • Clos Henri Sauvignon Blanc 2019

    £21.99

    “Attractive hints of crushed stone, graphite and nettle leaves appear on the nose of Clos Henri’s 2019 Sauvignon Blanc. Backed by layers of white grapefruit and riper notions of stone fruit, this medium-bodied wine is a fine effort. The silky, expansive mouthfeel leads into a long, gently textured finish that leaves tasters refreshed and yearning for another sip. After some irregular performances, this property seems to be finding its stride. Drink: 2021-2022. 92 points”

  • Cota 45 Ube Carrascal 2018

    £46.99

    “Cota 45 is the personal project of Ramiro Ibañez, one of the most dynamic young winemakers in Jerez. He’s also involved in the renaissance of De La Riva together with his friend Willy Pérez; the Mayetería Sanluqueña project with small growers from his village; and he is the winemaker for La Callejuela. He has a small winery by the beach in Bajo de Guía in Sanlúcar de Barrameda. Without a doubt he is one of the pioneers in the new wave from Jerez.”

  • CVNE Monopole Clasico Gran Reserva Blanco 2015

    £99.95

    “One of Rioja’s most well-known, oldest and largest bodegas, CVNE was founded in 1879 in Haro. Today the property owns over 500 hectares of vines. Over the past decade the quality of these traditionally made wines has been on a steady rise. Today I would count CVNE among the region’s top producers, up and down the range. The entry-level Cune bottlings deliver excellent value in quantity. The top-end Imperial bottlings are made from a 28-hectare vineyard in Rioja Alta. These wines have established an enviable track record for long aging. Bottles of the legendary 1968 Gran Reserva are still going strong, with what seems to be years of life ahead. Both American and French oak barrels are used here, with an emphasis on American.”

  • Domaine de Belliviere Coteaux du Loir Vieilles Vignes Eparses 2017

    £48.95

    “Nicolas’s 2017 Coteaux du Loir Vieilles Vignes Eparses exhibits an intense yellow-golden color along with beautiful ripe and overripe mirabelle, honey, wax and white-chocolate aromas intertwined with discreet earthy and flinty notes. Silky and gentle on the seamless palate, with concentration, salt and finesse, this is a rich and intense, full-bodied yet elegant and finely mineral Chenin from vines up to 90 years old. The wine is concentrated and dry as well as fresh and sustainably salty and reveals some fine tannins. I’d cellar this 2017 for another couple of years, since it seems to be in a bit of a valley today. 12.5% alcohol. Tasted in May 2021. Drink: 2025-2035. 92+ points”

  • Domaine Leflaive Bourgogne Blanc 2018

    £109.95

    “Notes of Anjou pear, white flowers and blanched almonds introduce Leflaive’s 2018 Bourgogne Blanc, a medium-bodied, supple and fleshy wine that’s open-knit and lively, revealing a demonstrative, giving profile that will make friends in its youth. Drink: 2021-2035. 88 points

    This year, I met with Brice de La Morandière and Pierre Vincent to taste not unfinished 2019s but rather the Domaine’s 2018s from bottle—a change in the estate’s policy that I warmly encourage and support—and I found the wines showing very well indeed. As I wrote last year, while many producers along the Côte de Beaune were inclined to accept the generous yields of the 2018 as nature’s gift, arguing that Chardonnay can sustain an elevated crop without suffering dilution, de La Morandière and Vincent opted to perform an aggressive green harvest, jettisoning around 40% of the potential crop. “I’m glad we have something to show for it,” remarked de La Morandière when I complimented the concentration of the domaine’s Combettes. As usual, the wines fermented and matured in barrel before finishing their élevage in stainless steel tanks on the lees, and they were bottled under Diam with some 25 parts per million free sulfur dioxide. As is the case in Chardonnay along the Côte de Beaune in the 2018 vintage, the appellation hierarchy does make itself felt—I tend to think that low yields efface some of the disadvantages of humbler sites, whereas large crops exaggerate them—but the highest appellation bottlings here are really quite serious; and, having evoked the comparison with Leflaive’s superb 1982 vintage when I tasted them from barrel last year, I continue to think that they will blossom beautifully with bottle age.”
