A deep and dark shiny red colour with hints of fresh fruits, red berries and spices on the nose.
On the palate it is full, round and racy with rounded and smooth tannins. A full-bodied, rich and intensly aromatic wine.
A beautiful long finish with plenty of elegance and finesse due to the well balanced tannins and fruit. Perfect with cold and hot meats, game bird and cheese. Drink now or cellar for up to 8 years.
Forest floor aromas, fruit and minerality are a welcome sign we are in the south of Priorat. Sensations which make us re-live a springtime stroll through Mediterranean woodland. Intense and fresh, balanced with some silkiness which is characteristic of Mas d’en Gil wines.
The baby wine of the estate expresses the young Garnatxa (Grenache) vineyards of the village of Bellmunt, in the south of Priorat. It is open and vibrant, light on the palate with a plethora of citric and peach sensations coupled with mineral notes and the refreshingly fine sweetness which sets Mas d’en Gil wines apart.
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 takes 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!
This wine has evolved perfectly showing a deep ruby colour with shades of orange. Its nose is persistent, full bodied and showing a lot of mature fruit, being dominated by the Tempranillo grape. Its taste is round, smooth, fresh, full of body and persistent. Perfect with roasted and highly flavoured meats, lamb and game.
This beautiful Cotes Du Rhone is a blend of 50% Grenache and 50% Syrah.
I like this wine because it offers a fragrant bouquet of blackberry and blackcurrant with a delicate touch of oak and sweet spice. On the palate, it’s fruity, juicy with lovely smooth tannins.
A fuller bodied style with more intensity, depth and structure yet very delicate to the palate with balance, wonderful purity and still remaining fresh, clean and very pure. This is what an excellent Rosé should be.
When it comes to Rosé production, it doesn’t come any more famous than Tavel. Instantly recognized as one of the best communes producing bombastic Rosé. Made from a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault, it’s a full bodied Rosé with just a little more skin contact but yet light, sensual, beautifully balanced with a magnificent finish of wild rose petals and coriander strawberry. Drink now or over the next 2-3 years.
Quintessential Rosé from the Rhone valley with a lovely blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre that made with the right proportions, they offer a beautiful fresh, floral and perfumed wine that palate wise is expressive, incredibly fresh and balanced. It’s almost like freshly picked wild strawberries on a sunny day! Put it in the fridge nicely chilled and have it with wild Salmon, beautiful! It’s almost like you are in Marseilles!
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 2014, 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.
2006 is another wonderful vintage in Rioja that at 14 years of age is 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.
After more than 20 years importing this wonderful Languedoc, we’ve got to say that it gets better and better. Beautiful cherry colour packed with dark berry fruit, spicy, floral and with hints of garrigue, really what Langeudoc is. Made from a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mouverdre, it offers an array of dry spice intermingled with dry herbs with a core of minerality. Beautiful now or over the next 4-5 years plus.
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!
A blend of Garnacha and Cabernet Sauvignon with aromas of roasted meat, saffron and game, full bodied with a beautiful silky texture, excellent middle palate and beautiful finish. An amazing wine, incredible value for a 9 year old Gran Reserva aged 3 years in oak and wonderfully matured, which really is the equivalent of many $40 plus wines. As Spanish wine expert John Radford wrote in Decanter, the tiny enclave of Campo de Borja is "the source of some of the best value wines from Spain, if not the world". It's true. Where else could you find such a grand, mellow, complex, eight year old, oak aged red at this price?
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.
Cairanne, a relatively new appellation within the Cotes du Rhone, makes wines mainly from Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. The 2016 a vintage which is starting to drink superbly now however with another 2 or 3 years it will only get better. Medium to full bodied with good concentration, balance and backbone. Wonderful aromas of thyme, pepper and roasted capsicum are very prominent but it is not only about fruit flavours, it also has excellent depth, length and beautiful balance. Drink now or over the next 4-5 years.
Another of our latest arrivals from the outstanding producer of Bruno Thierry, a producer that has been making wine in the Rhone Valley since 1985. This is very much their straightforward Cotes du Rhone made from mainly Syrah and a little Grenache however when it comes to quality versus price, it is unbeatable, medium to full bodied with hints of black pepper, tapenade and dry herbs, its focused with vibrant acidity, very well balanced and structured. A wine that will sit very comfortably along other Syrah at $30 plus. Drink now or keep for another 2-3 years.
A new addition from this much acclaimed producer made from a blend of Syrah, Merlot and Grenache from the excellent vintage of 2018 which is full bodied and spicy with a 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
