A stunning full bodied, fully matured Spanish red from Campo de Borja which is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Garnacha. This is a very similar wine to the Ermita de San Lorenzo which has been our most successful Spanish wine over the years, however once you try it you will know why! A full bodied wine with classic spicy and leathery flavours from the Grenache coupled with the structure and depth of the Cabernet Sauvignon and at 8 years old is drinking magnificently and at its price, just unbeatable!
Dark ruby red with an intense and complex nose of spicy wild plums, prunes and roasted peppers. Vibrant and elegant on the palate with good structure, balanced acidity and firm polished tannins. It is full bodied with a lingering, silky finish. Enjoy this wine with hearty dishes for the coming 5-10 years.
This is absolutely new from the range of wines by Chateau de L’Engarran. A beautiful blend that describes and typifies Languedoc perfectly. Garrigue, spice and floral notes with hints of leather, dark cherry and hints of tapenade with a bright purple hue. This immediately take you back to the South of France, medium to full bodied, served at around 16-18 degrees with a beautiful ratatouille and you may as well be there yourself!
At 13 years old you would think that it is time to drink and even though it is beautiful now, it will keep going for another 10 years. The same blend as the Reserva but aged longer and from the best parcels in the vineyard. Full bodied, almost animal like with lots of herbs, saffron and cured meats. Great length but mostly beautifully balanced with lovely texture. A wine that is magnificent now but will age for 10 years plus. Decanting is advisable.
A gem situated in the heart of Rioja dating back to 1860 making traditional unfiltered, unfined and old fashioned Rioja. A blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha and Mazuelo, the bouquet is a concussion of Jamon serrano, saffron, cured meats with fresh roasted herbs. For a Reserva 2013, it still has plenty to go. It’s vivacious, attacking on the middle palate with length, power and penetration. Keep and cellar for the next 5 years plus.
“The "second wine" of Nalys, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Saintes Pierres is a blend of 69% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 5% Cinsault, 4% Muscardin, and 1% each Counoise and Mourvèdre. It was put together by the Guigal team, although the vinification’s took place prior to the acquisition. It's an attractive, full-bodied wine that delivers ripe cherries, a hint of stone fruit and very supple tannins. It's a bit too easy to think it will be a long-term cellar candidate, but it is a ripe, juicy mouthful of fruit to drink over the next 6-7 years.”

Wildly aromatic with notes of wild red fruits and spice. The Syrah brings some flesh and freshly ground pepper to the mix, whilst the subtle seasoning of Moristel, Garnacha Blanca and Bobal (locally known as Provechon) add gentle notes of lemon thyme and other Mediterranean herbs. A classic field blend from 5 parcels that redefines the concept of Old Vine Garnacha in Aragon.
2004 is one of the greatest vintages in the history of Rioja even though the wine has been aging for the last 12 years, it’s still youthful and will keep improving for the next 10 years. Made from a blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha, Graciano and Mazuelo with aromas of aged ham, cocoa, roasted nuts and game. Extensive aging in American Oak leads to a very full bodied wine with great intensity and power yet with caressing soft velvety tannins and extremely long finish. Approachable now but will also cellar for a further 10 years.
This is another one of our exclusive producers that we have been importing for many years now. Made from a careful blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre grapes, this is a wine of distinction from the South of France. The 2016 was a vintage with lovely ripe fruit and soft tannins, with hints of wild strawberries, which is subtle and smooth. This wine is drinking well now and will improve over the next 3-5 years.
"Full ruby. Heady aromas of red and dark berry preserves, with a smoky overtone and hints of vanilla and candid flowers. Plush and expansive in the mouth, offering sweet black raspberry and cherry-vanilla flavours braced by zesty acidity. Finishes smooth and long, with lingering smokiness and very good energy." 90 Points, Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar
ES LO QUE HAY – It´s what there is / It is what it is / That´s how it goes. A common Spanish expression but one I like to reserve for the few old high altitude Garnacha vineyards that survive in Aragon . What you taste in the bottle is a true expression of what there is in the vineyard. It´s as simple as that. It has an impenetrable purple colour with a bouquet of pronounced aromas of crushed violets and zarzaparrilla. Intense yet refined with lifted, perfumed fruit and wild mountain herbs. Full bodied, with rounded tannins, crisp acidity and a long mineral finish. High altitude ancient vineyards at 1000 to 1100 metres above sea level with ´pizarra´ slate and quartzite soils. Completely dry grown and unirrigated this is an inhospitable continental climate with extreme changes of temperature were mountain herbs, almonds, cherry trees and Garnacha form a breath-taking patchwork. Low annual rainfall of 200-300mm and the remarkable soils produce fine and elegant Garnacha which is punctuated by intense black fruit flavours with complex mineral, smoke and ‘garrigue’ notes. This is a pure unoaked Garnacha which is fermented in open top fermenters then aged on fine lees for 20 months before release. It is what it is ES LO QUE HAY!
Chateau de L’Engarran enjoys a tremendous reputation and history in the Coteaux du Languedoc rose is one of Chateau’s specialities. Made from Grenache and Syrah, this Rose is made from the juice that has seeped from the grapes without any artificial pressure. Beautiful wild salmon pink and onion skin colour with bright fresh aromas, hints of spice and beautiful texture. This is the kind of Rosé that you have on the veranda of a restaurant in Cannes or maybe Monaco with a salad nicoise.
Made from 100% old vine Granache from very high altitude soils and a mountainous vineyard, tiny yields which makes it extremely concentrated, full bodied and impeccably clean, focused and fresh. Even though it is a very full bodied wine, in some ways in style of a Barolo, it still remains very textural, succulent and perfectly balanced. Starting to drink quite well now but will also cellar for another 8-10 years.
A new addition from this much acclaimed producer made from a blend of Syrah, Merlot and Grenache which is full bodied with typical expression of Languedoc in being perfumed and floral with hints of dry herbs and garrigue. On the palate it’s profound with lovely racy acidity, soft caressing tannins and a long finish. Excellent now but better over the next 3-4 years.
"Espectacle is a new project jointly owned by Rene and Isabelle Barbier, Fernando and Marta Zamora, and Christopher and Charlotte Cannan. The wine is sourced from a single vineyard of 100+-year-old Grenache vines located at La Figuera on the northern edge of the Montsant D.O. The vineyard is tended by Rene Barbier's Clos Mogador team and vinified in one special 4000-liter oak vat at Celler Laurona. Just over 400 cases are produced annually. The 2004 Espectacle del Montsant is deep crimson-colored with a sensational bouquet of mineral, espresso, lavender, violets, and black cherry. This leads to an opulent, nearly exotic wine with remarkable depth, complexity, and layers of sweet cherry-flavored fruit. It is as pure an expression of Grenache as exists anywhere on the planet and certainly the greatest example of Montsant ever produced." 99/100 Wine Advocate
We have been importing this producer for a number of years now who is both a negociants and grower producing a wide range of top Cotes du Rhone wines. Chateauneuf-du-Pape is probably one of the best known appellations from this area and also one of the most prestigious. The 2015 vintage is a classic for this appellation and is showing very well now with a brick red purple colour on appearance, and a perfume of black olive, dry herb and black pepper. On the palate it's generous, tightly structured, clean and pure with hints of tapenade, crushed black pepper corns and roasted capsicum. Drink now or cellar for another 3-5 years.
