Description

Grandis has been a Cru Bourgeois property since the 1930’s and has maintained it’s status ever since by producing fabulous quality, classic wines.  Beautifully balanced cigar box and spice alongside dark fruits and finely balanced tannins.


Château Grandis became a family run estate in 1857 and the vineyards are made up of a modest 10 hectares which enables the family to maintain the strictest high standards both in the vineyard and the cellar. In 2005 Brice Vergez took over the running of the estate and has continued to practice the techniques of hand harvesting, hand pruning and racking from barrel to barrel.  He also prefers ploughing between the rows of vines rather than the systematic use of herbicides, promoting soil health wherever possible.


The vines are grown in gravelly clay and limestone soils and are planted with 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. Harvesting is done entirely by hand to maintain the quality of the fruit. The grapes are fermented in tank and transferred to barrel where the wine is aged for 16 months in French oak barrels before being bottled at the Château.

2014 chateau saint-pierre, 4ieme cru classe st.julien

Bordeaux Blend

The 2014 vintage of this 'under the radar' Chateau is a blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc.  Chateau Saint-Pierre is the smallest classed growth in Saint Julien but has a growing reputation for producing excellent, deeply coloured reds.  It is part of the Chateau Gloria stable and often eclipses it's more illustrious stablemate in blind tastings.  Prices are creeping up as their reputation grows but these beautifully made wines still represent good value.

2019 nostru nerello mascalese, azienda cortese

Nerello Mascalese

The Nostru range from Azienda Agricola Cortese offer terrific value, expressive wines made with grapes more commonly associated with the slopes of Mount Etna. The farming here is traditional and a nod to when organic production was a way of life rather than an informed decision.
