  • J.L. Chave Selection Hermitage Blanche 2017

    £54.99

    “By now it’s no secret that Erin Cannon-Chave and Jean-Louis Chave’s semi-négociant operation is producing a range of consistently excellent wines that clearly show the Chave magic at user-friendly prices. While the Hermitage Blanc Blanche will inevitably be compared to the white Hermitage from the J.L. Chave domaine, the wines that intrigue me are that Crozes-Hermitage Blanc and Saint-Joseph Blanc since neither of those appellations are present under the family’s estate label. There may be a domaine Saint-Joseph Blanc, someday, “that’s probably a job that’ll wait for our children to take on,” Chave told me.”

  • J.L. Chave Selection Saint-Joseph Blanc Circa 2018

    £30.99

    “Pale yellow. Powerful peach nectar, orange, honey and chamomile aromas show sharp definition and lift thanks to a smoky mineral flourish. Supple, silky and broad on the palate, offering ripe orchard and pit fruit flavors and a touch of sweet butter. The mineral quality repeats emphatically on the impressively long, seamless finish, which leaves behind a juicy Anjou pear note. Drinking window: 2022-2028. 92 points

  • Andre Perret Condrieu 2019

    £45.95

    “Brilliant straw. High-pitched orange zest, melon and violet aromas show impressive clarity and take on a suave floral quality with air. Silky and sharply focused on the palate, offering vivid citrus and pit fruit and honeydew flavors complemented by a subtle chamomile quality. Finishes very long and juicy, with resonating florality and strong tenacity. Raised in a combination of stainless steel tanks and oak barrels, 10% of them new. 93-94 points

    Two thousand-nineteen gave somewhat riper fruit than 2018, Perret told me, “but 2018 is, by historical standards, quite a ripe vintage, itself.” While the Condrieus from 2017 to 2019, may not age as slowly as those from 2016 or 2015, what they might sacrifice in cellar-worthiness they more than make up for in sheer deliciousness.”

  • Andre Perret Condrieu Chery 2019

    £59.99

    “Vivid, green-tinged yellow. Expansive orchard, citrus fruit, melon and floral aromas are sharpened by notes of smoky minerals and lemon zest. Concentrated pear, Meyer lemon and violet pastille flavors show a suave blend of richness and delicacy thanks to a core of juicy acidity and an emerging mineral nuance. Closes juicy, taut and extremely long, leaving a sexy floral note behind. 95-96 points

  • Rotem & Mounir Saouma Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Magis 2015

    £99.95

    “Light brilliant yellow. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes mineral-accented pear nectar, orange gelato, iodine and mineral scents, along with a deeper suggestion of honey. Impressively energetic, sharply focused citrus and orchard fruit and floral flavors stain the palate while showing zero fat. A sexy floral nuance emerges steadily as the wine opens up, along with hints of toasted brioche and green almond. Wonderfully concentrated yet nervy; the ridiculously long, focused finish features lingering floral and mineral qualities. This is one of the most impressive bottles of Rhône white wine that I can recall, from the north or the south, and I’d have no qualms about setting it up alongside the best from Burgundy. Drinking window: 2021-2028. 96 points”
