We are delighted to welcome back this wonderful Menetou Salon from Domaine Coquin. Planted on south west facing slopes with excellent exposure, the vines are tended with the utmost respect for the environment with ploughing and grass cover limiting the excessive use of chemicals.
Elegant and mineral with plenty of delicious fresh Sauvignon fruit, great examples of Menetou such as this can often eclipse some people’s Sancerre. Domaine Coquin were also lucky to escape most of the climactic mayhem that hit so many French vineyards in 2020 so supply should be good (for now)!

Perfectly sited on protected, south-facing, chalk soils, the D'Urberville vineyard produces perfectly ripe grapes for exuberant, fruit led English sparkling wines. We are proud to represent them and love the fact that it is less than a mile from the shop as the crow flies. Zesty, fresh and very easy drinking this is a great aperitif style of English fizz.

2018 carte d’or, baumard, coteaux du layon
We are big fans of the wines from Baumard and with some of them ranking as some of the very best available from this part of the Loire they are priced accordingly! Thankfully, the terrific Carte d'Or is extremely well-priced and offers a wonderful introduction into both the wines of the region and the Baumard style in general.

nv grande reserve, champagne gosset, ay
This cuvée has a bright and golden colour. The nose is dominated by the freshness and the fruit. The Chardonnay brings finesse sustained by notes of yellow fruits such as peach and Mirabelle plum. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and generous. The Pinot Noir of Ay gives its structure. Hawthorn and white flowers merge naturally. Acidity is expressed by citrus fruits.
