New French Wines

Where do we start with our new French wines to buy online?  We have several new Clarets ranging from the youthful and bouncy 2011 Ch.Tire Pe Diem to the more mature 2007 Ch.Noaillac - a Cru Bourgeois from the Medoc.  Then there’s the elegant roundness of 2009 Ch.Haut Rian, a 1er Cotes de Bordeaux and the 2009 Saint Jacques de Siran, which is effectively a “baby Margaux”.  There’s also a new Lalande de Pomerol in the form of the 2010 Plaisir de Siaurac joining Mme Riviere-Junqua’s 2009 Ch.Haut Chatain on the list.

In the Rhone section we have added the 2011 La Chaussynette (effectively declassified Chateauneuf du Pape made for drinking young, and soon to move on to the 2012) as well as a 2010 Cairanne from Domaine des Escaravailles and a super 2009 Vacqueyras from Domaine Saint Pierre where the blend is 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah with production of only 35hl per hectare which produces admirable concentration of flavour.  At a more modest level try the Vin de Pays de Vaucluse from Domaine des Pasquiers based in Sablet.

We’ve also given the French Regional section a good working over this time, adding four new reds and two whites.  The Viognier and Syrah pair from Domaine de Vedilhan are May’s Sampling Club selection and have proved to be very popular.  The other new white is a deliciously clean, fresh Gros Manseng from Domaine Cambos which retains that characteristic hint of fresh pineapple.  The three remaining reds are a Cinsault dominated blend from Domaine de Boede near Narbonne, a super old vine Corbieres from Chateau La Bastide and a deep and rich Mourvedre/Syrah/Grenache blend called Domaine La Vista “Grains Meles” but made by Robert & Cathy Pouderoux.  Added to our range more recently on a "just visiting" basis are the Mourat wines (see previous blog) and another Corbieres that we simply could not resist.  This one comes from Chateau de Durfort and tasting the original sample was one of the highlights of our recent tasting sessions.  We have tiny quantities only and it's not in the printed list so grab some while you can - you will not regret it!
What we love about our new flexible buying regime at Wines of Interest is the opportunities it provides us with to tune into wines like these as we find them rather than having to wait to include them in our annual printed list.  We can sniff out new discoveries and take advantage on suppliers' promotions as and when they appear by adding them to our website, where you can buy wine online and either have it delivered to your door, or collect it from our shop.  You can buy these wines online now - click here to start shopping!
