The words Fine Wine and France can mean expensive wines from classic wine regions like Bordeaux or Burgundy. However great hand-crafted wine can be found at affordable prices if you spend your time to look off the beaten track.

Our wines are sourced from family-owned estates that are focused on crafting high-quality wine, based on the traditions of their regions. Most of our suppliers have small, unique estates and prune their vines for low yields, ensuring the best quality.  The vines are grown with little to zero use of chemical treatments or fertilizers, and in most cases the producers tend to their vines by hand at all stages of the growing and harvesting process.

Our wine selection is a reflection and celebration of over forty years sourcing and selecting outstanding wines. We hope your curiosity in this wine selection leads you to realise why we are passionate about wine.

Bordeaux 2011 ‘En Primeur’

The 2010 en Primeur was particularly encouraging...

 

Bordeaux 2010 ‘En Primeur’

The first and most obvious thing is that Bordeaux had another great vintage on its hands, albeit one which was very different from the remarkable preceding vintage of 2009. The success of 2010 was due to the near-perfect and unusual weather patterns which developed during the vintage. In particular, the weather was dry but not too hot, with many cool nights.

Fortunately a decent amount of rain came at the right time in September, which provided welcome relief just when the vines were at their most stressed.  The result was grapes that were small, healthy and concentrated and wines which are high in alcohol, acidity and tannin - when expertly balanced, these components are vital for great wines to age.

This vintage, with it's different characteristics is comparative to the classic 2009 Bordeaux, in that it should also certainly be considered for any serious collector as a benchmark to develop their cellar.  I have been buying wines in Bordeaux for nearly 40 years and as always will concentrate my campaign on a limited number of Chateaux, whose owners I know personally, and who make superb, reasonably priced wines.  In addition, I can also source any of the ‘classed growths’.
