We have just received a new shipment of the beautiful wines of Alice and Olivier de Moor from Chablis and Chitry. These wines are always on allocation and in very small quantities.
However this year we are able to offer small quantities of the Chitry (it is 100% Chardonnay) to our retail customers. You can buy one or two of these and mix them with other wines to make up a carton of 6 and you will receive the normal 10% discount.
We also have a beautiful rose from 2014 and the Rouge aux Levres and the Highway.8 from 2013 from Bainbridge and Cathcart in the Loire.
And two left field wines have also arrived. One is the amazing Allez Goutons sparkling Aligote from Dominique Derain and the other is a Skin Contact wine from Julien Altaber of Sextant wines in Burgundy also made fromAligote.
March newsletter now available
Our March edition of the Wine Talk newsletter is now available and has some interesting special offers for you.
You can download a copy of the newsletter by clicking on the link below:
The newsletter has six special offers this month, plus articles about an obscure grape variety found in the Jura region of France that is responsible for some beautiful wines. We also have news of a number of upcoming events and some reports on recent events in France and Australia. We have also included a story about our visit to see Auvergne winemaker Mito Inoue who makes delicious wines in tiny quantities from vineyards clinging to the high slopes of extinct volcanoes in this region.
And we have a story about some of the legislative underpinnings of organic, biodynamic and natural wines and attempt to show that there is quite common agreement about what constitutes each category.
