    This comes from 30 year old vines planted in alluvial and clay soil overlying limestone, on a south-east facing hillside . It is a light, zesty wine, with hints of celery, quite saline and has a chalky lift on the finish. For drinking now to 2018+.

    100% Altesse (12.5% alc.)

    Gilles named this cuvée after a Moroccan lawyer (Hem means inspiration in arabic) who free of charge helped Gilles out of a tight corner after a driving offence!! This has more body and weight than Chignin, with an intriguing nose, fine tension and balance with a hint of spice (altesse is akin to the pinot gris) and a ripe peach fruit on the palate. This emanates from a superb terroir and it’s by far Gilles’ best example to date.  For drinking now to 2018.

    100% Bergeron (12.5% alc.)

    Log in to view prices

    Bergeron is a synonym for the roussanne grape, and here gives a dense, concentrated wine with apricot/peach fruit with more dynamism and natural acidity than you find in the northern Rhône. Fermented 100% dry and cuve aged only, it has been made from low yields, harvested in various sorties when only the ripest bunches were selected. For drinking now to 2020+.

  • 50. Mondeuse AC 2014, La Deuse

    85% Mondeuse, 15% Persan (10% alc.)

    Log in to view prices

    La Deuse is a memory of times past when many wines’ alcohol levels were between 8-10 degrees – a pre-Parker golden age!  Persan adds a little tannic structure and intense red fruits to the typical mondeuse flavour and aromas of violets, black fruits and pepper.  Very sappy, racy fruit, with a wonderful texture and real digestibility. For drinking now to 2021.
