     Chateau Pesquie
RP - Easily one of my favourite estates from the up-and-coming Ventoux region, Chateau Pesquie is run by the talented brothers, Alexandre & Frederic Chaudiere. The wines sell for a song, yet always deliver high-quality, loads of character and impeccably made profiles.
28 75cl Cuvee Artemia Rouge
Cotes du Ventoux
Chateau Pesquie

RP/Jeb Dunnuck -
Shockingly good, the 2009 Cotes du Ventoux Cuvee Artemia is in the top handful of wines I've tasted from this appellation. Just insanely perfumed, with tons of incense, Provencal herbs, garrigue, smoked meats and violets, this full-bodied beauty has a stacked mid-palate, building, sweet tannin and a killer finish. Hello beautiful, why didn't I buy more of you.
2009 £34.00 RP96

Great Value - Highly Recommended

A Bio-Dynamically farmed estate, making really wonderful wines; which represent Top Value for the price!

RP - Easily one of the top estates in the Languedoc (if not southern France), Chateau Puech Haut lies just outside the village of Saint-Drezery and is owned and run by Gerard Bru, with consulting help from Philippe Cambie. They produce a number of cuvees, with their entry level efforts representing superb values, and their top cuvees being able to stand toe to toe with the greatest wines in the world.

Wonderful value wines - please try a bottle!



75cl Coteaux de Languedoc
Saint Drezery
 Prestige ROSÉ
Chateau Puech-Haut - The 2017 Prestige Rosé is another beautiful rosé from this estate. Spice, underbrush, cherries, citrus blossom and beautiful minerality all emerge from the glass and it’s rich, yet also fresh and crisp.


2017 £14.00 JD91



75cl Coteaux de Languedoc
Saint Drezery
 Prestige Rouge
Chateau Puech-Haut - The 2016 Prestige is made from 55% Grenache and 45% Syrah that’s from 65- to 80-year-old vines aged all in concrete tanks. It's a huge, opulent, sexpot of a wine that offers crazy good notes of black licorice, roasted herbs, peppered meats, and ripe, black and hints of blue fruits. While this is no doubt a big, rich wine, it has remarkable elegance and purity, and is the finest vintage I’ve tasted to date. Drink it over the coming 4-5 years. This cuvée was first made in 2009 by owner Gerard Bru, consultant Philippe Cambie, and Eric Solomon, and it has knocked it out of the park in every vintage to date.

2016 £16.00 JD94
31 75cl Pic St Loup, La Closerie du Pic
Chateau Puech-Haut

RP/Jeb Dunnuck - The 2015 Pic Saint Loup La Closerie Du Pic is certainly one of the gems in this terrific vintage.
Its vibrant purple colour is followed by sensational notes of black raspberries, toasted spice, cassis and even a hint of bacon fat. With medium to full-bodied richness, a seamless texture, integrated acidity and a blockbuster finish, drink this straight up fabulous Pic Saint Loup anytime over the coming 7-8 years. Hats off to the team at Puech-Haut, and consultant Philippe Cambie, for this sensational wine!

2015 £22.00  





    DOMAINE de Bila Haut de Roussillon
Michel Chapoutier
21 75cl V. I. T. Visitare Interiore Terrae
Cotes de Roussillon Latour de France
Domaine de Bila Haut
M. Chapoutier

This vintage has not been reviewed yet, but I list below a review of the 2008 vintage by RP/David Schildknecht for your general guidance:

RP - A 60-40 Grenache-Syrah (as well as chalk-clay - schist) blend raised in various sizes of barrel, the Bila-Haut 2008 Cotes du Roussillon Villages Latour de France v.i.t is gorgeously-scented with gentian, iris, wild berries, and spice; then delivers a bright melange of fresh black and red raspberry with smoked meat, licorice, cinnamon and tonka nut. Succulently ripe and subtly velvety, with tannins so fine as to nearly disappear, this builds to a finish of vibratory impingement and interactive complexity.

2010 £22.00 RP-TBA



RP - One of the reference points of Gigondas as well as one of the model winemaking estates in the southern Rhone
22 75cl Gigondas
Santa Duc

RP -
The 2009 Gigondas Tradition, a blend of 75% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre and the rest Syrah and Cinsault, tips the scales at about 16% alcohol, so there’s nothing wimpy about this wine. Loads of blueberry, smoky blackberry, kirsch, licorice and hints of toast and earth all make an appearance in this voluptuously styled, evolved wine, which is already drinking beautifully. This wine has low acidity and velvety tannins, so there’s no need to wait to enjoy this gorgeous red, which is drinking well now and should continue to do so for at least another 10-12 years.
2009 £25.00 RP92
8 75cl Gigondas
Santa Duc

RP -
The 2007 Gigondas Tradition, a 3,000-case cuvee, is a big-time sleeper of the vintage and well-worth latching onto, since its availability is very good. Dense purple to the rim, with an exquisite nose of charcoal, blueberry and blackberry fruit, chalk, and floral notes, the wine is rich, full-bodied, with sensational concentration, admirable purity, and beautiful texture and length. The wine is still young and unevolved, but it is very accessible. The acids buttress the wine’s substance, and give it vibrancy and focus.
2007 £32.00 RP94
