  • 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 2018

    £99.95

    “Glistening violet. Vibrant, spice-tinged cherry, raspberry and candied lavender scents pick up potpourri and mineral qualities with air. Densely packed red fruit liqueur, cherry cola, star anise and floral pastille flavors stain the palate and deepen steadily through the back half. Fine-grained tannins lend shape to an impressively long, focused, floral-dominated finish that echoes the red fruit note and betrays no rough edges. 97% Grenache, 3% Other Varieties. Drinking window: 2025-2035. 95 points

    Julien and his sister Laetitia are the latest generation of Barrots who have been in the region since the 1400s, to oversee their family’s vineyard holdings, established in 1703. In just over 15 years they have earned their spot among Châteauneuf-du-Pape’s elite producers. Julien Barrot’s first winemaking efforts, in the early 2000s, showcased richness and often flamboyant fruit-driven character. Still, I have never found them overdone in the extreme school fairly common back then. Over the years, Barrot has been steadily moving toward a more elegant, expressive style, even more since they transferred from their old winery. The new facility is a far more spacious, modern (but not too modern), gravity-fed operation on the south side of town, which is tricked out with the same tall, tulip-shaped concrete fermenters made famous by Château Cheval-Blanc in Saint-Émilion. Barrot’s 2018s are excellent renditions of the vintage, if slightly more forward in character than usual.”

  • Guillaume Gilles Cornas 2016

    £54.95

    “Inky ruby. Smoke- and spice-accented cherry liqueur, blueberry and violet scents are complicated by hints of olive paste and cured meat. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering intense black and blue fruit, bitter chocolate and licorice flavors and a spicy touch of cracked pepper. The meaty quality comes back on the finish, which shows solid thrust, strong persistence and well-knit tannins. Drinking window: 2024-2032. 92 points”

  • Herve Souhaut La Souteronne 2021

    £28.95

    “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.”
