Red Wine

  • Baga, Tinta Roriz, Touriga Nacional Hearty and rustic red from the Bairrada region of Portugal showing aromas of ripe berry and plum fruits. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, dark fruit and warming spicy characters  
  • Andersbrook Shiraz is a rich, fruity, medium bodied red with spicy aromas with blackcurrant and forest fruits. Vibrant, positively humming with sappy wiry fruit with a bright mineral palate, cranberry fruit and a long, essential finish. The vines are trellised and planted in the shale soils towards the North East parts of the Valley bordering the Swartland Region. They are produced from only free run juice and fermented on skins in stainless steel tanks. The wine is left on fine lees for an extended period for greater palate weight and mouthfeel.
  • This cuvée gets its name from the round pebbles in the vineyards. The vineyard is composed of multiple plots, each with their own distinct characteristics which give this wine its incredible complexity: Bois de la Ville and Les Serres have a deficient and filtering gravel bed making for perfect draining of water which forms great concentration of flavor in the grapes. Farguerol and Cansaud have red and blue clays which lend to the extremely rich aromatics of the wine. Finally, Cabrières and Revès, with chalky, limestone soils bring the overall structure and long finish to the blend. André Brunel Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge 'Les Cailloux' is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. The Syrah component is first aged in barrique; then, after the final blending, the new wine is aged for a further 18 months in large oak casks. This is a powerful, herb and plum scented Châteauneuf, with layers of spicy flavours and a long, elegant finish.
  • Andre Brunel is such a calm, urbane gent that it is of no surprise to taste that his wines have the same kind of careful consideration and reserve that he does. But he's deceptively passionate too, and he pours as much of this passion into each of his wines, from his top Chateauneuf's to this great little number. The vines producing this cuvée are located north of Orange . The search for low yields as well as the clay-limestone subsoil of the terroir bring elegance and finesse to this wine, the Grenache bringing its fruit and roundness. Complex and intense with peppery spice, dense berry fruits and hints of raspberry, cocoa and vanilla at the finish. Will cellar for up to 3-4 years with ease.

  • In the 20th century, Château Capion changed owners several times. Sold in 1900 to a family of wine negociants, the Wormsers, they were tragically deported to Auschwitz in 1944. In the sixties, the Château belonged to the Salasc family whose own land had been expropriated when Lake Salagou near Lodève was created. In 1996, the Bürhers moved to Capion, embarking on a renovation of the Château’s grounds by adding fountains, a French garden, an ornamental pond and an Italian dovecote. In 2016, Château Capion was bought by Oleg Chirkunov. With a major overhaul of the vineyard, as well as the estate’s conversion to organic farming, a new phase in Capion’s story has begun.

  • he Ilberts have been farming vines in Cahors since 1901 but selling grapes to the local co-op. However, between 1998 and 2005, current vigneron Julien phased out the selling of his grapes and created Combel-la-Serre. He today farms 26 hectares at 320-350 metres above sea level on the highest reaches of la causse, an old Occitan term for the region’s famed limestone plateau. He shuns the addition of Bordeaux grapes to his Malbec (otherwise known here as Auxerrois) and avoids using oak on many of his wines, only sparingly on those he does, so letting the pure fruit of these special grapes ring true. All in all, rugby-loving Julien makes Malbecs that are veritable vins de soif with no shortage of joie de vivre.
    Malbec grapes from dierent plots in the village of Cournou, 35-year-old vines planted on causse limestone and clay. Traditional short fermentation with the aim of maximum fruit extraction, aged on lees in cement tanks. No oak is used and the wines are not inoculated with yeasts - ambient yeasts used. No malo is used. Bright, intense purple colour, recognisably Malbec with bramble fruit and grip, yet at just 12.5% alcohol it’s a genuine vin de soif – even for serving slightly chilled in warmer summer months. Radically brilliant. Give it a go with spaggy bol, spicy sausage, smokey lentil soup, cassoulet
     
  • Perhaps the most radical winemaker in Bordeaux? Undoubtedly this is the antithesis to what we’ve become accustomed to seeing from this most traditional of French wine regions. Olivier Cazenave and his wife Anne discovered Château de Bel on the banks of the Dordogne in 2003. They have since expanded its vineyards to eight hectares, as well as taken on the farming of those of friends and family elsewhere in Bordeaux, with one-third of a hectare in Pomerol and two hectares in Montagne Saint-Émilion. Since 2016, all Olivier’s own vineyards are certified biodynamic. His wines are at turns classical, experimental, natural and never shying from controversy. 100% Merlot
    The vines are planted on clay-silty soils close to the Dordogne river. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks to retain freshness and primary fruit avours, like cherries and fresh raspberries. It's super fruity, rounded and a delight to drink. Proper claret! Olivier Cazenave is the most radical winegrower in Bordeaux. Multi-vintage bottlings, biodynamic farming, avant-garde packaging...in so many ways Olivier is re-imagining what is possible in this historic French wine region. Echappée - meaning an 'escape', such as a romantic getaway, or in cycling a 'breakaway' - is Olivier's multi-vintage house blend, the red version a mixture of a few recent vintages of Merlot from the biodynamic vineyards of Château de Bel. Olivier makes his wines non-vintage partly to create a reliable house style (as in Champagne), partly to distance the wines from what can sometimes be an unhealthy obsession with this or that vintage in Bordeaux. Intense garnet colour with notes of cherries and fresh raspberries. Fruity, round and very easy to drink. Grab a burger or two along with some sweet potato wedges and bliss out! Vegan
