France has produced the global benchmark of wine for centuries and its influence can be seen in every wine producing country today.
Several winemaking concepts and techniques, such as terroir (tear-wah), have been exported to every corner of the globe. Cuttings of French grape varieties have been smuggled in suitcases and gumboots by ambitious winemakers with the hope that they might be able to reproduce the magic of France in their home country.
Leon Palais Brut Methode Traditionelle Blanc de Blancs NVZippy on the palate, with fine mousse (the technical name for those bubbles we love) and a full mouth feel, stone fruit it dominant alongside notes of creamy peach and brioche. While full of flavour its also subtle enough as to not compete with whatever you choose to pair it with, meaning its great anytime of the day from a bubbly breakfast to a refreshing afternoon aperitif.
Soupcon de Fruit Loire Rosé 2020 (Loire) Pale pink in the glass, a lovely subtle rose perfect for a long lunch or easy dinner. Cabernet d’Anjou is a region in the Loire Valley, France, which allows for the production of rose wines from Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2020 from Soupcon de Fruit is dry, with notes of strawberries, cherries as well as a hint of savoury tomato leaf.
Calvet Bourgogne Chardonnay 2018 (Burgundy) The 2018 from Calvet is a delicious introduction to white Burgundy, with notes of peach, jasmine and lemon. It fills your mouth and will have you coming back for more. Drink now, alongside a creamy pasta or fresh white fish this summer.
Chateau Monsan Estebe Bordeaux Superieur 2018 (Bordeaux) It’s filled to the brim with ripe, dark fruits with a thread of vanilla and oak weaving through on the palate. Its full bodied and would pair well with a rib roast, mushroom ragu or a platter of hard chesses. Drink this one now, it won’t disappoint.
Laurent Dublanc Côtes du Rhône 2020 (Côtes du Rhône) A blend of Syrah and Grenache and Mourvedre, the colour is intense ruby red, clear and brilliant. With dark red fruit, strawberries, current and on the nose, it's rounded out in the middle with subtle vanilla and spice. So well balanced you can call it easy drinking and serious, this wine will flow right along with the conversation, wherever that turns.
Mont Tauch Fitou Vieilles Vignes 2017 (Languedoc) Delicate woody aromas alongside red fruits and sweet spices lead to long, lingering fruit flavours and silky smooth tannins on the palate. A balanced, medium to full bodied wine that's an excellent match for meat meals.
