Decanter Magazine is without doubt the leading authority on wine in the UK so when we spot good reviews for wines we import amongst their pages, we’re like a proud parent whose child has just won a sports day medal.

We were delighted to find Decanter had written up four wines we exclusively bring into the UK. All four are available in any of our shops and on our website so why not pick up a bottle and see what all the fuss is about!


“A wonderfully refreshing Sauvignon and a more affordable alternative to pricier Sancerre. It’s vibrant and crisp on the palate with notes of tropical pineapple fruit, gooseberry and lemon zest on the lifted finish. It’s easy drinking and bone-dry – A great summer tipple.

Pale lemon coloured, the nose is full of grassy fruit, with nettles and gooseberry, but also with hints of passion fruit and guava. The palate is medium bodied with abundant fruit and a crisp, dry finish.

France Loire
£9.95 Bottle

“This wine is just bursting with fresh, ripe pear flavours both on the nose and palate. It’s soft and smooth, rich and round but not too heavy, with delicate acidity and notes of bruised apple and an off-dry honeyed sweetness. This is a wine for food – it’s not for idly sipping but for savouring and tasting the nuances with something delicious to eat, such as game. A wine that delivers more than its price suggests.”

Pale lemon gold with a nose of confit pears, blossom and spice, notably vanilla. The is broad textured, rich and powerful, showing baked apple, pear and spice and lifted by fresh acidity.

France Alsace
£16.95 Bottle

“A fresh, fragrant nose, with lemony fruit and herbal notes, and on the palate rounded fruit with good acidity. It has a wonderful sapid quality, which leaves you wanting more. Grenache Blanc and Gris with Roussanne and Macabeo. Fresh and incisive, firm with a structured finish.”

Lively nose of blossom, apple and peach. The palate is quite rich but has a very appeaking freshness to it.

France Languedoc Roussillon
£16.95 Bottle

“A glorious flagship wine from a stellar name in the Southern Rhône. This organic red made from Grenache, Counoise, Carignan, Cinsault and Syrah delivers a palate bursting with delicate strawberry, raspberry and red cherry flavours. It’s complex but delicately nuanced with soft tannins and edges of juicy watermelon with a gentle creamy finish that lingers on the tongue. Just delicious, and great with roast lamb.”
