    Hildegard Horat-Diop’s rebellious streak, innate talent and patience have made her a star in Languedoc. She has just eight hectares high in the hills above Assignan and produces wines that always feel very composed and at ease with themselves. Aged for a year in a Stockinger foudre and recent barrels, then given six months in cuve, this has ripe but fresh apricot and orange fruits, with attractive bitters on the finish typical of marsanne.  For drinking now to 2021.

    100% Carignan (13% alc.)

    Log in to view prices

    Yves Falmet’s wines have attractive, unforced fruit with excellent texture and mouthfeel. This low yield, hand-harvested carignan comes from the same north-facing vineyard as his Saint Chinian and has been cuve aged to retain all its spicy, black, liquoricey fruit. For drinking now to 2019.

    Domaine des Terres Falmet

    100% Mourvèdre (13.5% alc.)

    Yves planted three parcels of mourvèdre on the same limestone-clay hillside as his two other wines. Made from low yields, hand-harvested and cuve aged, this has classic mourvèdre qualities with spicy black fruits with a hint of game, a good structure and savoury tannins. Excellent value for money. For drinking now to 2018.

    From a steep hillside vineyard in the Montagne Noire, this comes from 40 year old vines, and is minerally, spicy and tobaccoey. In our view Saint-Chinian is one of the finest appellations of Languedoc, and this is a really good example. For drinking now to 2019.

    Low yielding old vines planted in gravel and basalt soils and tended organically. This wine offers very clearly defined fruit, with dried figs and black cherries to the fore. It has been very sensitively extracted, there is a distinct terroir imprint, smoky and hot stone, and there are fine tannins on the finish which is long and sustained. For drinking now to 2019.

    A complex and very original wine, this has a deservedly excellent reputation.  It is rich, dense, and yet very balanced, offering apricot and peach fruit, nuts, honey, gingerbread and liquorice, with a gently spicy, very long finish. Will appeal to lovers of fine northern Rhône whites. For drinking now to 2020.

    Grown on west facing schist and sandstone slopes, Daniel here works with tiny yields(20hh)of this very rare grape. Aged in one to three year old barrels, it has a pale gold colour, shows ripe lime, other citrus fruits and lemon verbena on the nose, and on the palate is very well balanced with good density, freshness and an excellent texture.

  • 27. Faugères AC 2013, Les Bancels

    Domaine de Cébène

    60% Syrah, 20% Mourvèdre, 20% Grenache (14% alc.)

    Log in to view prices

    Brigitte’s Faugères vines grow near Bédarieux on a terraced, north facing hillside for the syrah and grenache, and a due south facing plot for the mourvèdre.  Faugères is renowned for its thin soils developed on underlying schist, here evident in brittle, thin layers, with lots of iron, which may help to imbue the fruit with a signature stony mineral flavour.  Black cherry and blueberry fruit is abundant and dense, with spicy and wild garrigue herb notes, and this wine opens out really well with a good carafeing.  For drinking now to 2019.

    Domaine de Cébène

    70% Carignan, 20% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre (13% alc.)

    Log in to view prices

    This wine is based around a five hectare parcel of 70 -100 year old vines yielding just one or two bunches per vine(two vines make one bottle of wine) that Brigitte purchased four years ago when the former owner was thinking of digging them up! The vines again face due north and are planted in an iron imbued schist. Made from 50% whole bunches and cuve aged, this has exceptional balance and is plummy, spicy and tastes very close to the grapes.  For drinking now to 2020.
