Sometimes we’ve just got a lot to say about a particular range or producer, more that we can fit into a little description on our site. These detailed offers are often for hard to get items, but sometimes it’s simply just a great way to group similar items together for you.
For info on our pre-arrival and en-primeur offers, see our Pre-Order page.
It’s nearly that time of year when we roll out our annual Champagne offer... we think this will be the perfect way to celebrate the end of Winter this year.
When the sun feels warm again it will mean an offer is coming.
We often have a selection of wines available that are either so limited, hard to get or perhaps just need that extra info behind them, that we offer them only via downloadable pdf offers. Following is our current list.
Shortly we’ll be receiving a selection of back vintage wines from Chatea Mont-Redon - the largest landholder in Chateauneuf-du-Pape. The vintages include, 2003, 2000, 1998, 1989 & 1978. Limted stocks available.
The exciting wines of young winemaker Benjamin Leroux are due to arrive shortly from the terrific 2010 vintage.
These are wonderful Burgundies from a terrific producer and a super vintage.
"An exciting and ultra-classic vintage of refinement, balance and superb transparency." Burghound.com
“Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey is one of Burgundy’s most exciting young producers.” The Wine Advocate Sept 2011
The "Vintage of the Century" (2009) was always going to be hard to follow, but as fate would have it, 2009 has been followed by an equally good if not better vintage (at least in a classically styled sense). Drought conditions, but milder nights & longer growing season have combined to produce a similarly rich vintage, but with more classic tannin structure and fresher acidity. A vintage for the longer haul.

Undoubtedly the greatest producer of Riesling in the Mosel, if not the world. Always amazing wines when tasted with age, but the most recent 3vintages have proven to be exceedingly hard to ignore as young wines. The 2009’s are perhaps even more attractive younger with riper fruit than the 2008’s which had a little more prominant minerality.
"2009 is a startlingly super Riesling vintage, if a recent tasting of wines in Germany is anything to go by. A combination of ripeness with retained, relatively high acidity are cited as the defining parameters of the 2009 in the main riesling regions of Mosel, Rheingau, Nahe, Pfalz and the Rheinhessen." - Sally Easton MW
This offer includes, Georg Breuer, Dr Loosen, Wittman, Gunderloch, Heymann-Lowenstein and Donnhoff.
This is our offer on the available 2010 wines from Giaconda (plus the 2009 Cabernet and 2008 Nebbiolo). Stock is as always quite limited, so please contact us as soon as possible to secure your allocation.
2008 is a vintage where producers earn their reputations. The best producers made stunning wines that speak of their place and offer classic Burgundy. With this in mind we have stuck to Domaines with proven track records such as; Bouchard, de Villaine, Montille, Mongeard Mugneret, de Vogue, Mugnier, Courcel, Comte Armand and Gouges.
Allen Meadows of Burghound says 2008 Whites are "Another Classic Vintage that is Essentially a 2007 Redux but with Better Concentration". In this offer we have four of the top Domaines (and personal favourites) on offer including: Louis Carillon, Bouchard, Blain-Gagnard and de Villaine. A great year and not to be missed.
Undoubtedly the greatest producer of Riesling in the Mosel, if not the world. Always amazing wines when tasted with age, but the most recent 2 vintages have proven to be exceedingly hard to ignore as young wines.
On a recent trip to France, Olivier Lamy inspired Cam with his super pure, delicate and racy whites. St Aubin they may be, but the quality is far greater than many would accord this underrated region.
