New partners: 10 wines with price tags less than €60

When you like wine, you search endlessly to uncover new treasures to savour and to place in your maturing cellar. And you know we never stop searching the world over to bring you the best bottles. Here we take a look at ten of our new partner producers that offer exceptional wines at attractive prices.

Wines from around the world

Beaumont Family Wines: Fine Chenin Blancs and Pinotages from South Africa

This is an estate that is perfect for discovering South African Chenin Blanc and Pinotage at attractive prices. “I discovered the property’s wines at a wine fair, and they tasted so good. The Pinotage is delicious, juicy and supple,” says Eloise Rusier, our purchaser who manages regions all around the world.

The Chenin Hope Marguerite (from the 2021 vintage) was well-received by critics with  Jancis Robinson awarding it 17.5 and Tim Atkin 95/100. You can’t go wrong with this one! It has amazing ageing potential and can stay in the cellar until 2030.

Elvio Cogno: Barolo’s hidden treasure

Elvio Cogno is Barolo’s hidden gem. All the appellation’s producers know and respect  this winemaker who is mainly only known by the most discerning wine enthusiasts. His Barolos are made in a style that means they can be savoured in their youth, but they also can be cellared for a long time as they are bursting with freshness,” Eloise tells us.

The Barolo Cascina Nuova 2019 and the Barbaresco Bordini 2020 were both praised by the press, obtaining 94 from Wine Enthusiast and 17.5 from Jancis Robinson, and 95 from Wine Enthusiast and 93 from Wine Spectator respectively.

4Kilos: The charm of Majorca

This is Majorca’s flagship producer,” for Eloise. “I’ve known this estate for a while. When I tasted their wines at a trade fair, I was blown over from the get-go.” To be able to offer the greatest diversity of wines from different regions and countries, Eloise searches high and low to find wines worth tasting. “These are pure wines that don’t need any touching up.

Produced using the local Callet variety, Vino de la Tierra de Mallorca 2020 (€36) has charmed the Wine Advocate team – not to mention Eloise herself – who gave it 97/100.

It’s time to explore Burgundy like you’ve never seen it before

Fabien Coche: An historic Meursault producer

This historic Meursault estate perfectly represents what makes a fine Burgundian wine. The winemakers Fabien and Magali Coche, who run the property, are extremely generous. I recently had the chance to meet them there with Cyrille and it was a wonderful visit full of discussions,” says Amicie, our Burgundian purchaser.

As well as being kind and welcoming, the two produce delicious wine! A favourite is their red Meursault – a rarity in this appellation whose production is 95% white – from the 2022 vintage (16/20 Jancis Robinson).

Maison Romane: A natural producer in the Côte De Nuit

A first for iDealwine – we now sell beer! And this is thanks to this new partner. Maison Romane also lists cider, pork, beef, eggs and natural wine as products it sells. Oronce de Beler has built up a reputation and is known as the go-to Côte de Nuit natural wine producer.” This is why Amicie sourced the estate’s wines, beers and ciders for iDealwine.

A talented winemaker, Oronce de Beler started his trading business in 2005. The key to his success? First of all, he only buys biodynamic grapes. Then, he vinifies the whole bunches with as little intervention and sulphur as possible. The wine is aged in oak barrels which adds the finishing touches. Bottling the wine by hand completes his artisan approach.

Domaine De L’Enclos: Fine and generous Chablis from a recent estate

This Chablis estate was created in 2016 by two brothers and gained organic certification in 2018. Natural yeast starts the fermentation process, and the use of sulphur is controlled (it’s added after pressing and bottling). What’s more, prices are still reasonable – it’s a Chablis producer to try as soon as possible!

The mature, generous wines risk losing wine enthusiasts who like the usual style of Chablis wines, but this estate rejuvenates the local landscape,” according to the French wine magazine La Revue du Vin de France

The Rhône. Beaujolais, Loire or the South West – Which one to choose?

Clos Durandière: A micro-producer who vinified wine at Clos Rougeard

Etienne Bodet’s family roots have been planted in Loire soils since the 19th century. As a winemaker, he honed his craft with Sylvain Pataille, Guiberteau, and Pierre Gerbais before managing vinification at Clos Rougeard from 2021 to 2023.

Clos Durandière is a plot of 1.3 hectares surrounded by walls. This little-known, unique Saumur is a wine that can be aged (Eloise recommends that we wait 5-6 before uncorking it). A Chenin Blanc will be released next October, and we have already ordered it for you. A producer to follow closely!

Louis Cheze: An iconic Rhône producer

This iconic producer from the Rhône Valley is one that we really wanted to be able to add to our array of winemakers from the region. This estate started life in 1978 with just one hectare of vines in Saint-Joseph and now it has 35 to its name in which Syrah and Viognier flourish.

Saint-Joseph, Côte-Rotie and Condrieu wines that are up there with the classics from their appellations are all waiting for you on iDealwine.

Antoine Sunier: Amicie’s latest favourite

This property which was created 10 years (its first vintage was in 2014) by Antoine produces natural wine with amazing texture crafted from five hectares of vines. Today, it’s one of the estates not to be missed from throughout Beaujolais. In fact, it was one of my favourites from the Bien Boire wine faire in Beaujolais. I had a great time speaking to Antoine who, incidentally, spent a lot of time in Beaune (where I’m based) before coming back to Beaujolais,” Amicie tells us.

Bottles of Morgon, Régnié and Beaujolais-Villages are available on iDealwine. The Régnié and Morgon wines can be cellared for nearly 10 years!

Goienetxea: The first vintage from an immense Irouléguy

Created in 2021 by Bixente Indart, Goienetxea is made up of one sole plot with the grapes being sold to Domaine Arretxea in the past. The estate’s logo is the outline of this parcel on the side of a hill. From its very first vintage, Bixente has rivalled the finest white wines from the Irouléguy appellation, and his wines are best served with dishes full of flavour.

When I tasted his wines at a trade fair, I loved them! The red (from 4ha of vines) is very supple, a favourite of mine. The white (from 1.35ha of vines) is perfectly balanced with continuous acidity. Everyone in the South West is already talking about Bixente,” says Eloise. The first vintage, from 2021, is available on iDealwine.
