Decanter Silver Award Winner
Dark garnet with a bright purple rim. Generous aromas of black cherries, clove and raspberry with ripe mulberries and glimmers of spice from gentle oaking. The palate has a savoury edge and a smoot and generous finish.
Bright ruby red with an attractive nose of plum and black cherry tinged with herbal tea, liquorice and gentle oak spice. Soft and juicy palate with mouth-filling summer berry flavours and a smooth finish.
A brilliant and pure pale gold yellow introduces an expressive but elegant nose of sheer chardonnay personality: ripe apples, white flowers, citrus like lemons and fine tangerines enhanced by touches of butter, honey, hazelnuts and fine spices coming from the most elegant French oak aging.
Fresh and complex, such as the nose, the palate shows a juicy body and a lot of precision. The balance is all about structure and overwhelming texture with a crucial acidity in between that seems to give wings to the natural concentration. The rich, long and vibrant finish is made of white fruits such as pears and apples with dried fruits and a mineral, aniseed touch, well completed by subtle fine spices.
A bright red cherry colour in the glass. The nose shows black fruit and vanilla from the oak. Fruity on the palate, with good balance, leading to a long and pleasant finish.
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.
Brilliant pale yellow, with greenish tones. Mango and apricot predominate on the nose, enriched with citrus touches. A great balance of density and acidity on the palate, with a very fruity aftertaste.

Through its freshness, the nose expresses elegant aromas of apples, pears, lemons with tangerines hints layered by mineral tones. Floral honey and subtle English cream are also present with a buttery whisper beside the soft oak complexity. The mouth offers an excellent balance between the generosity of its texture and its fresh and mineral origins. Deep and structured, the wine gets a good density and roundness at mid-palate after its sharp attack, and finely ends with a complex finish where fruits are enhanced by mineral accents.

Oriental spices and meaty notes appear first at the nose but the true personality is coming with flowers and stony notes. The fruit is made of fresh strawberries, blackberries and small wild berries with pink pepper and soft vanilla hints. The palate starts clear and fresh and goes on to offer its energic and juicy texture. The whole body shows a good depth thanks to a frame of small and tight tannins along with an integrated acidity.
