DOMAINE BELLUARD, DOMINIQUE BELLUARD, Savoie – Biodynamic

2015 VIN DE SAVOIE-AYZE GRINGET “LES ALPES”

100% Gringet.  The fruit is beacon-bright, crystalline and the acidity sings. Aromas of white flowers and jasmine, citrus-edged with a hint of white peach, violet and a twist of aniseed to finish.  It is surprising, unconventional and delicious!

LA CAVE DU VIN BLANC DE MORGEX ET DE LA SALLE, MORGEX, Valle d’Aosta

2015 VALLE D’AOSTA BLANC DE MORGEX ET DE LA SALLE “RAYON”

100% Prié Blanc.  A straw-yellow colour, with pale green nuances, its aromas evoke mountain herbs with notes of fresh hay. Further notes of lemon, almond apple and peach also fight for attention on the nose. The palate tracks these aromas but the crisp acidity is balanced with intense flavours. The finish is persistent with lingering flavours of pear and citrus.

DOMAINE GERARD FIOU, Sancerre - Organic

2015 SANCERRE BLANC

100% Sauvignon Blanc.  Very pungent elderflower and gooseberry fruit, but there’s an edge of ripe pear and pear-drop, with a little suggestion of a more tropical fruit character. Very crisp, clean and racy on the palate with a core of orchard fruits that is very pure and focused through the mid-palate, with melon and a tangy apple acidity on the finish.

DOMAINE LE ROC DES ANGES, Cotes du Roussillon

COTES DU ROUSSILLON VILLAGES ROUGE “SEGNA DE COR”

50% Grenache, 30% Carignan and 20% Syrah.  The Four ‘s’: soft, smooth, silky and smoky! Lively and fresh in the mouth, gentle flavours of red grape and sweet berry, dried spices and roasted herbs. Clean, lingering finish.

APHROS, VASCO CROFT, Vinho Verde – Biodynamic

AFROS VINHAO VINHO VERDE TINTO

100% Vinhão Loads of brambley fruit on the palate allied with black cherries and raspberries.   The tannins are chewy but kept in check by great acidity.

DE MARTINO, Maipo

2015 Carmenere

100% Carmenere.  Fresh and intense with notes of white pepper and plum, which are balanced by sweet aromas of vanilla. A pleasant acidity fills the palate, with well-structured tannins.
