Description

The Sancerre Croq Caillotte is a classic example of how it pays dividends to seek out the smaller growers, as this is a top notch, characterful Sancerre showing citrus and apple fruit, perfectly poised minerality and mouth-watering acidity.  Classy and offers terrific value for money. 


This tiny 6.5 hectare domaine in the Loire was started by Emile Balland in 1999. The Ballands have been making wines in the Loire since 1650 and his father was instrumental in achieving recognition for the young AOC Coteaux du Giennois in the 1980s.


Emile has just one hectare of Sancerre and this cuvée comes from the steep, south facing slopes of the Amigny area of Sancerre.  His philosophy is to intefere as little as possible in the vineyard and let the vines express their true terroir.  Since 2019 he has been using the services of ‘Viking’, a horse to plough parts of his vineyards.

2020 atlantico rose, quinta boa esperanca, vinho regional lisboa

Touriga Nacional

The Atlantico Rose is a beautiful light salmon colour with a unique density and structure.  This is a very food friendly rose, especially with fish and seafood in general, but also full enough to take on white meat, tapas, fresh cheeses and charcuterie.

2019 soli merlot, thracian valley, eduardo miroglio

Merlot

The Soli Merlot is amazing value and drinks beautifully.  Bramble, baked plums and herbal tinges are supported by notes of tobacco giving a wine which is both plush and rounded, and immensely enjoyable to drink.
