Description

This relatively young family owned Domaine was created in 2001 by vignerons with 4 generations of vinegrowing and winemaking expertise under their belts.  They own some seriously old vines in superb sites in the Southern Rhone on a mixture of soils of red sand, clay and the classic ‘Galet’ pebbles associated with Chateauneuf du Pape.  As a result, their wines posess a wonderful depth and concentration.


60% Grenache and 40% Syrah from 80 year old vines are hand harvested and then fermented in a mixture of stainless steel and old oak barrels, before blending and then ageing for a further 12 months in large demi-muid barrels.  This is a terrific wine which manages to expertly balance power, elegance and finesse – the hallmarks of great southern Rhone reds.  Stunning value.

2016 Les Charmes de Kirwan, AC Margaux, Half Bottle

Bordeaux Blend

Les Charmes de Kirwan is the second wine of 3rd Growth Château Margaux and, like it's more grown up sybling, has benefitted from the massive investment program in both the winery and the vineyard in recent years.  It is generally made with the younger vines on the property but receives exactly the same care and attention as the wine.

2020 Chateau Saransot Dupre, Cru Bourgeois Superieurlistrac

Bordeaux Blend

Chateau Saransot-Dupre is a favourably sited 17 hectares property that lies between Fourcas Dupré and Fourcas Hosten in Listrac.  Due to Listrac’s cooler temperatures, Merlot and Cabernet Franc are favoured over Cabernet Sauvignon to form the majority of the blend, helping them achieve optimum ripeness.  Much like Chateau Fourcas Hosten, the wines have improved year on year since 2010 and the property were put on the radar thanks to a certain Robert Parker hailing the 2010 vintage as 'classed growth quality'.  High praise indeed!
