Description

Bouchon are 4th generation viticultutralists situated in the Maule Valley. Current incumbent Julio Bouchon and his children carry on the family tradition of creating distinctive, terroir-driven wines. The Block Series wines are a relatively new release and are made with dry farmed old vines planted on ancient Granite Soils.


This wonderfully characterful wine is a pale yellow colour, with the nose revealing notes of ripe lemon and orange peel. There’s a distinct minerality on the palate, silky texture, and a very long finish characterised by thirst quenching acidity. This is starting to show nicely after a couple of years in bottle, but will continue to develop over the next couple of years.

Coteaux du Layon  Carte dOr.JPG

2021 Carte d’Or, Baumard, AC Coteaux du Layon, Half Bottle

Chenin Blanc

The Carte d'Or Coteaux du Layon from Baumard has a very attractive honeyed nose, with lifted yellow fruits and more golden tropical elements such as mango, guava and pineapple. It has a particularly tropical character and a very fresh feel on the palate, with steely minerality and a zippy background acidity giving invigorating tartness to keep the wine luscious and buoyant. The rounded, approachable finish has good length.

Delavenne Brut 6040.JPG

NV Original 60/40, Champagne Delavenne, Grand Cru Bouzy

Champagne Blend

The Brut Tradition Original 60/40 is made up of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay from two vintages which are fermented with natural yeasts in stainless steel.  It's extremely classy with a great depth of flavour showing apple fritter and brioche with fresh apple and lemon drop charatcters.  We are delighted to have these wines on our shelves, and also very lucky seeing as most of the production ends up on the tables of some of France's best Michelin Starred restaurants.

Lete Vautrain Brut 204.JPG

NV Brut 204, Champagne Lete Vautrain, Marne

Champagne Blend

The grapes for the Lete Vautrain Brut 204 are harvested by hand and sorted prior to fermentation at a cool temperature, and ageing on lees takes place for a minimum of 36 months.  The wine shows a lovely deep golden hue in the glass with apple, peach and apricot fruit complemented by dried fruits and classic biscuity notes.  A well balanced, complex and rounded Champagne that is the perfect aperitif style.

Idun Cabriole Sauvignon.JPG

2023 Sauvignon Blanc ‘Cabriole’, Idun Winery, WO Bot River

Sauvignon Blanc

The Cabriole Sauvignon Blanc from the Idun winery is an elegant yet expressive Sauvignon from the cool Bot River region of South Africa.  Subtle tropical fruit is beautifully balanced with saline touches and minerality on both the nose and palate, which builds to show an impressive richness whilst never losing freshness and expertly poised acidity.  This terroir driven wine nods more to the classic old world Sauvignon Blanc from Europe than it does the modern Kiwi style, but there is enough character to satisfy lovers of both styles - very impressive.
