I love it when you choose a wine to sell and then you find it has a great review from famous journalists.
We chose Clos Vieux Taillefer for our Christmas range this year - and then I found this review in Decanter
Some of my favourite wines come from the hugely under-valued Chenin Blanc grape. A variety that lends itself to a wide range of styles, but often needs time in bottle to reach it's potential. Maybe that's why it doesn't get the credit deserves.
The Corbieres is a beautiful place. The smell of the garigue, wonderful mountain views, some of the most beautiful vineyards in the World, Wonderful full red wines....
A favourite of ours is the organic Chateau Montfin, situated at Peyriac de Mer where the Corbieres mountains come down to the sea. A truly beautiful spot.
Good Muscadet Sevre et Maine Sur Lie is wonderfully refreshing and the ideal accompaniment to fresh seafood. The best wines have a lovely citric character, minerality and good length. In recent years they have been neglected – and therefore offer fantastic value for money.
The best vignerons of the region are now developing a range of Cru Communale wines from individual village sites and aged on the lees for an extended period.
