An "unquestionably great" vintage Bordeaux with SEVEN Golds, from this superb Cru Bourgeois estate
We've had to wait five years for the release of this superb, nine-Golds Cru Bourgeois claret. It's from Georges Pauli and team at Château Ramage La Batisse and a vintage described as "unquestionably great" by Decanter. Superb drinking now or cellar.

Gorgeous Gold-medal Pinot Noir from France
Proof that Pinot Noir can excel outside Burgundy! Silky red fruit with luscious depth and spice from a top winemaker. This is so lovely.
A massive magnum harnessing some of the oldest Grenache in France
This lush, powerful red is crafted by Parker-praised winemaker Hervé Sabardeil in Maury, a southern French town with a 2,000 year old wine heritage. Taste Cabalié and you'd think it was bolstered with a splash of the local fortified vin doux naturel. In a massive 1.5L magnum size, there's plenty to go around.

GOLD for the new vintage, devilishly delicious Rex Mundi!
Rex Mundi is a sumptuous red that fires the senses – a devilishly delicious blend of spice laden, lip staining Shiraz and plummy Grenache from the rugged Roussillon region. A thrilling 2019 for lovers of exceedingly dense, fruit rich reds.
Shiraz Based Blend
Tasty Gold-winning Cabernet from the south-west of France
From a modern cellar close to Gaillac and Toulouse comes this serious, fruit-filled Cabernet. It has just the right balance of ripe black fruit and firm tannins to produce a wine with the juicy crunch to partner food. Authentic France at its best. Dense velvety texture, cherry and blackberry, with silky tannins.
Lavish, luscious Bordeaux treasure from an exceptional vintage with two Gold!
As critic James Suckling says: “After two weeks in Bordeaux tasting more than 1,100 wines from the 2018 vintage, visiting 67 chateaux and talking to hundreds of vintners and winemakers, I can tell you that 2018 is an exceptional year for Bordeaux wines.” This lovely twice-Gold winning 2018 affirms it!
92pt fabulous French Grenache blend
This vintage is being ranked by critics as among the top three of the last 50 years, particularly for the south. And here's a star to prove it. A generous, beautifully balanced, long flavoured Châteauneuf du Pape from the 300 year old Arnoux family.

It pays to drink Pays d'Oc
Pure Syrah is rarely found in the wines of the Languedoc Roussillon, it's usually reserved for the pricy reds of the northern Rhône. From the warm, ripe 2019 vintage and vineyards close to Corbièries, this has dark, smoky black fruit and spice.
