We’ve sought out the latest vintages from your favourite domains. Be warned however, this sale is strictly first come, first served: get them before they’re gone!
Let’s start with Burgundy, which is upholding its reputation for excellence, thanks to wines such as Méo-Camuzet’s Chambolle-Musigny and Clos de Vougeot, Leroy SA’s Chassagne-Montrachet Premier Cru Morgeot, and Comte Armand Auxey-Duresses and Pommard Premier Cru. We are unable to hide our soft spot for domains of the Côte Chalonnaise (Nicolas Maillet, Domaine des Rois Mages or domain J.A Ferret) which produce lovely gems at even lovelier prices and that we’re often seen serving at masterclasses or tastings.
Elsa and Constance in marketing are possibly Gonon’s biggest fans; having tasted the wines at a professional tasting of Rhône wines last winter, they are delighted to have more from this domain on offer. Heading to the south of the region, why not rediscover domain Saint-Préfert’s Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the mythic Hommage à Jacques Perrin 2016 from Château de Beaucastel or the refined and fruity nectars from the family domain La Barroche.
Let’s not forget Bordeaux and its array of iconic wines: we particularly recommend bottles from Domaine de l’A, the 2016 from Cru Bourgeois Château du Taillan, mature sweet wines such as a 1999 Château Rieussec and the former vin de garage Château de Valandraud, now promoted to a Premier Grand Cru Classé B Saint-Emilion.
Now crossing over into Champagne, a region that has been slow to adopt more environmentally friendly approaches, yet here in our selection, you’ll find champagnes such as Xavier Leconte’s Les Reflets de Sylvie, whose viticulture has ‘high environmental value’ certification. Another success story of the moment is Benoît Marguet, who practices phytotherapy and aromatherapy to care for his vines and produce superb gastronomic wines.
Have we managed to convince you? Before we leave you, why not linger in the Languedoc and get your hands on a bottle from la Grange des Pères, take a stroll in the South-West with wines from Clos Triguedina or in Provence to savour (or cellar) Château de Roquefort’s Les Mûres.
We hope this selection will have you salivating as much as it did us. And don’t hesitate to have a look through La Cave…
