    Domaine de Perreau

    60% Sauvignon Blanc and Sauvignon Gris, 40% Semillon (12.5% alc.)

    Log in to view prices

    Montravel is a tiny area in the hills north of the Dordogne providing Bergerac’s finest whites. An interesting blend – sauvignon shows on the aroma, but the addition of semillon gives an extra structure with a dash of honey on the palate.

    Château Le Jonc Blanc

    50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 10% Malbec (13.5% alc.)

    Log in to view prices

    Franck Pascal pulled out of the Bergerac appellation in 2012 as his rich, natural, unfined and unfiltered wine had little in common with most of the wines from this appellation. His wine spends two winters in the cellars for natural stabilization before bottling. Black and red fruit gradually emerge on the nose, with deep structured fruit on the palate that is held firm by the wine’s chalky minerality backed by delicate tannins. The finish is long and the overall impression is one of freshness. For drinking now to 2019.

    Château Beynat

    70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc (13.5% alc.)

    Log in to view prices

    This wine comes from 25years old vines in the west of the appellation on the south facing limestone-clay hillsides of St Magne de Castillon. Organically certified and vinified with indigenous yeasts, this wine has been aged in cement for 15 months and has a clear, attractive not over extracted mid red colour. The nose is clearly printed by saline notes from limestone, and the palate offers a delicious raspberry fruit, with a little spice and hint of cinnamon. For drinking now to 2018.

    Château Cru Godard

    This wine comes from low yielding, organically tended vines on a south facing limestone hillside. Aged half in cuve and half in 3-5yo barrels it has ripe fruit (low sulphur), nicely cosseted by a refreshing saline quality emanating from limestone. For drinking now to 2019.

    Corinne captures the essence of the fruit in her first cuvée of red by delicate extraction (“the only extraction is done on the vine!”) and cuve ageing.  The fruit is ripe, natural, with dark cherry, fruits of the forest and hints of spice and dark chocolate.  It has a lovely play on the palate with great freshness and has very finely tuned, ripe tannins on the finish.  For drinking now  to 2018.

    CDT’s top wine comes from 60 year old vines, and has been aged for 16 months in one year old barrels from Pontet-Canet before bottling without fining or filtration.  Very luscious, ripe black fruits here with a touch of liquorice and vanilla, and fine, well integrated tannins. For drinking now to 2019.

    Château du Champ des Treilles

    34% Semillon, 33% Muscadelle, 33% Sauvignon (13% alc.)

    Log in to view prices

    Corinne is fortunate to have 3 hectares of 60 year old white grape varieties.  The vines are located atop a hill and the soil is full of flint.  Fermentation rumbles on gently over a couple of months (malolactic fermentation is allowed) in a mix of cuve and cement eggs.  A very elegant wine of real finesse (and a lower level of sulphur in 2012 really suits), with a relatively high proportion of muscadelle playing its part, providing gentle, floral aromas and flavours. As it ages it takes on delicious apricot, honey and hay notes. For drinking now to 2018.

    Les Trois Petiotes

    40% Malbec, 35% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon (13.6% alc.)

    Log in to view prices

    A very unique blend in Bordeaux at present (with so much malbec), this is a beautiful, hand-crafted wine made from just three hectares of vines. Aged in one to three year old barrels it has been very sensitively vinified, giving on the nose a wine with blackcurrants, violet, menthol and cooked prunes. It is full, dense and very silky on the palate, with perfect acidity, long finish with a lot of freshness. For drinking now to 2020.

    Château Canon St Michel

    70% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 10% Malbec (13% alc.)

    Log in to view prices New

    Four hectares of 45yo vines worked bio-dynamically give this exceptional and very good value wine. Aged for one year in larger foudres as well as barrels followed by a year in cement, this patient approach gives a very pure fruited harmonious wine, that is already starting to show very well with good depth to its plummy, spicy fruit, supple tannins and an attractive salinity on the finish. Low sulphur. For drinking now to 2020+.

    Château Cassagne Haut-Canon

    Log in to view prices

    This vineyard has a superb terroir – a small steep-sided knoll overlooking the Dordogne – with a rich and varied mosaic of all the underlying geology (Oligocene clays and sands with limestone on the hilltop) of the appellation. Aged in 40% new oak (the balance up to two years old), La Truffière is the château’s top cuvée. The 2011 is drinking perfectly now, showing finesse and truffley notes on the nose, balanced by a nice minerality and freshness on the palate. For drinking now to 2020.

    95% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc (13% alc.)

    Log in to view prices

    Organic viticulture from 35 year old vines whose roots penetrate deep into the bed of limestone just 30cm below the surface. A beautiful mid cherry colour that extends right to the edge, the very pure, clear cut fruit mingles fresh cherries and sappy red fruits. Oak elevage is well handled and there is a savoury backdrop of fine grained tannins. For drinking now to 2020.

    This wine comes from vines in the north west corner of Montagne-Saint-Emilion lying next to the best vineyards of Lalande-de- Pomerol. Indeed it is difficult to distinguish this wine from a good Lalande. A deep colour (neither fined nor filtered), it has rich stylish fruit with a hint of iron. For drinking now to 2018.

    Organic viticulture, late-picked grapes and rotation between oak cask and stainless steel vats are some of the secrets behind this wine’s quality. It is medium-bodied, with classic hints of eucalyptus and mint on the nose and intense red fruit flavours. For drinking now to 2020.

    This comes from superbly situated vineyards on the plateau of Figeac and Cheval Blanc, still tended personally by the devoted Madame André. It’s a wine with a great heart of concentrated healthy fruit and savoury tannins. For drinking now to 2020.

    Surrounded by the châteaux of Cheval Blanc, Figeac and La Conseillante in Pomerol, this 6.5 hectare estate on sandy, gravelly soil is a jewel, and well up to most Cru Classé estates in quality. One hectare of the cabernet franc vines are 100 years old which definitely play their part as surely does organic viticulture. Sensitively aged in one third each of new oak, one year old barrel and cuve, yields of 31hh are very low for the appellation. The 2010 is showing perfectly now, it is very harmonious, feeling composed and classy with a good touch of menthol on the nose, with an old vine feel to the structure, spiced plum fruit and supple tannins. For drinking now to 2021.

    This is the château’s top wine from the oldest and best placed parcels of vines, which lie on gravel beds with iron-rich areas in the clay beneath. Aged in 50% new and 50% one year old barrels for 18 months, and fined but not filtered, this is a stylish, elegant wine with hints of truffle on the nose, succulent, spicy red fruits and strong minerality in the background. For drinking now to 2019+.

    Château Thibeaud-Maillet

    Log in to view prices

    Thibeaud-Maillet is a real jewel. A tiny 1.5 hectare estate, the 30-50 year old vines are planted in a sandy, gravelly alluvial soil, which overlies Tertiary clay. The wines from this estate have a subtle, teasing, complex fruit with a silky delivery on the palate. Owner Roger Duroux considers 2010 as the finest vintage of his life as a vigneron. For drinking now to 2021.
