The vast southern French Languedoc region has some ideal spots for growing the finicky Pinot Noir grape.
It’s made at the oldest co-operative cellar in France (also voted ‘The Best’ by Le Revue du Vin de France). Wonderfully aromatic with complex notes of red fruits and liquorice. Full of flavour with smooth and gentle tannins.
Attractive herby, savoury, mineral character to the nose which shows some lightly aromatic red cherry fruit. The palate has a smooth, elegant fruitiness with a hint of spice as well as a trace of earthy complexity. A light, attractive Pinot Noir of real character.
This elegant salmon pink Rosé immediately presents luscious strawberries and cream on the nose. Those bright berries, meet with stonefruit on the palate with a medium dry finish. Best served chilled, this is a perfect ‘snacking wine’ – ie: quaff on the terrace with a platter of delicious savoury treats from your local deli.

The classic red Burgundy flavours of summer pudding - an appealing blend of raspberries, blackcurrants, strawberries and redcurrants. From one of the region's best known estates.
When the aromas of chocolate self-saucing pudding and local Marlborough black cherries hit the nose – you’ll be taken back to when your Grandma used to bake the delicious pudding for dessert when you were young. The sweet fruit character of the cherries matches perfectly with the grippy bitterness of the pure cocoa. The palate gives the impression of black Doris plum jam with a toasty oak texture, the drying of the tannins mixes wonderfully with finely balanced spices and fresh acidity you get in a quality homemade jam.
