Alphonse Mellot Cuvee Edmond Sancerre 2011


92 Points Wine Advocate

"Tasted from both a wooden fermentor and demi-muids representative of the vessels in which the entirety of this cuvee would reside until bottling, the Mellot 2011 Sancerre Edmond exhibits rarified, high-toned, Chartreuse like herbal and floral aromas. On its rich yet surprisingly buoyant and infectiously juicy palate, it introduces chicken stock and sweet-saline, scallop-like savor to an othe .....

Alphonse Mellot Domaine de La Moussiere Sancerre 2014


94 Points Wine Advocate

La Moussière is the cornerstone of Alphonse Mellot and in its energy and precision it is not only an unmistakable Mellot but also a quality and stylistic level most producers don’t reach rudimentarily. The 2013 Sancerre La Moussière offers very pure, mineral and fresh fruit and floral aromas on the nose, which are neither green nor tropical, but so invitingly subtle, elegant an .....

Alphonse Mellot Generation XIX Sancerre 2012


91 Points Wine Advocate

"Forgive us for pulling out another third party quote, but this one's a cracker. The Wine Advocate's David Schildknecht once described this wine (named after Alphonse Mellot Jr, the 19th generation of clan Mellot) as a '...dense and undeniably audacious essay in Sancerre Sauvignon'. Indeed, this wine represents all of the perfectionism, precision, history and hard work that .....

Bernard Baudry Le Domaine Chinon 2012

"Le Domaine, as it is known, builds its depth of character from the Baudry family's diverse collection of Chinon terrors. The fruit comes from older vines (around 35 years old), planted on both the alluvial, gravel soils near the river as well as hillside, clay and limestone plots (about 20 per cent of the blend). The former terroir provides the succulent fruit while the limestone soils b .....

Domaine Bailly-Reverdy Sancerre 'La Merci-Dieu' 2012

"A concentrated and aromatic nose. Varietal and expressive. Loaded with lime, grapefruit, star fruit, clover flower, nettle, spice and under-ripe tropical notes. Very juicy palate bursting with lime and star fruit and underlying chalky mineral acidity. Pithy citrus fruits follow. Fresh, zesty and fruit-driven it is very concentrated this year." - Importers Note

Domaine de la Chevalerie Les Galichets Bourgueil 2009

Pretty red fruits, pepper and spices. The palate has a nice texture, quite thick and a good tannin structure.   25-acre vineyard heading down the terrace toward the river that is planted on stony, sandy clay going down about one meter to limestone. Galichets was first planted in 1934, and today the vines average 40 of age. This vineyard tends to make the domaine’s fruitiest wine, .....

Domaine du Salvard AOC Cheverny Blanc 2014

"Having worked with the Unique Sauvignon for a handful of years now, we have turned our attention to the Domaine's terrific-value AOC Cheverny wines. The 'entry' level wine is the classic (!) Cheverny blend of 85% Sauvignon Blanc and 15% Chardonnay - give or take a % or two- that comes from the sandy chalk and limstone soils that form the best terroirs of Cheverny. After the grape .....

"Salvard's Unique in 100% Sauvignon Blanc from 25ha planted on the clay and silice of the plains of northeastern Touraine. The nose offers up pure, floral aromas of citrus blossom, pear, grapefruit and mint. It's generously flavoured and fresh, with good mineral snap to the juicy orchard fruit and citrus flavors. Offers great intensity for the price, with tangy acidity giving it a f .....

Domaine Guiberteau Breze Saumur Blanc 2012

Made from pure Chenin Blanc grown on the calcareous soils around Brézé, Romain's Domaine Blanc is as lucid and fresh a white Loire as anyone could hope. The French call such wines vif or vivant meaning lively. If you think you 'know' Chenin Blanc, then this is a great wine to get in your glass. The Brézé terroir creates a far more citrussy, floral expression .....

Domaine Guiberteau Domaine Saumur Rouge 2014

"In a usual vintage, 75 per cent of the grapes for this wine are plucked from the calcareous soils of Les Arboises with the balance coming from the mature Les Motelles, on sand and gravel over clay. In 2014 Les Motelles provided such a pathetic yield that Romain declassified all from that vineyard into this bottling. Without overstatement, the resulting wine is little short of breathtaking.

Domaine Guiberteau Les Motelles Saumur Rouge 2013

100 per cent Cabernet Franc. Les Motelles comes from a mature single-site in the south of the appellation. The name seems to reference a rocky terroir, perhaps the gravelly component of this clay-dominant terroir surrounding the village of Montreuil-Bellay. The site is a 1.4ha lieu-dit planted by Romains grand-père in 1955. It is cropped at a freakishly low 25 hl/ha (the maximum rendement f .....

Domaine Huet Petillant Brut 2012


17.5 Points Chris Kissack,

Dry Sparkling. Huet’s vintage Brut is a profound wine that would leave many a more recognisable (big-brand) Champagne in its wake for interest and quality. By this we mean that few of the big-name Champagne houses can produce wines with the kind of sense of place and attention to detail that is articulated by this wine. As such, it’s a wine that deserves a much wider audience! Don&rsqu .....

Domaine Vincent Gaudry Sancerre 'Le Tournebride' 2013

"Sourced from vines around 30 years old on the three different soils of the appellation, this is Vincent’s cuvée that is most representative of classic Sancerre. A ‘classic’ feel with spice, dried white flowers-elderflower, stony minerals. Very subtle and pretty. Medium-weight with a lovely silky texture. Starts out with sweet sappy citrus fruits and apples then becom .....

Domaine Vincent Gaudry Sancerre Melodie de Vielles Vignes 2010

"Melodie’ is sourced from two small plots of old vines, 90 and 100+ year old respectively, growing on a sloped ridge of Kimmeridgian marl soil. This was very fine and reserved and dominated by its chalk mineral character. This shows more concentration on the nose straight away with a real richness and broader savoury notes before the florals, citrus and minerals emerge. The palate here .....

Francois Chidaine Les Choisilles Montlouis 2014

“Some effusive minerality on the nose here, with a seam of tense, concentrated citrus fruits with the suggestion of some real, pithy depth to it underneath. The palate feels a little flat at the start, but soon livens up in the middle, showing a finely polished layer of white peach and herbs here. A supple and composed wine, with good grip in the finish. Very attractive.” 17/20 Points .....

Francois Chidaine Les Lys Montlouis 2009


95-96 Points The Wine Advocate

Chenin Blanc. Made exclusively from botrytised fruit and so it’s sweet (but not heavy). For Chidaine, the perfect conditions required to grow this style of Montlouis only come around once in a blue moon. The previous outing of the Les Lys – a wine made entirely from botrytised fruit – was in 2003, so this is only the second vintage we have managed to get our h .....
