Gamay loves the granite/siliceous soils of the vineyards in the hills to the north west of Lyon in eastern France. Grapes were hand picked deliberately early to maintain freshness. In the cellar, grapes are vinified using traditional carbonic maceration techniques (where fermentation is started by the weight of berries in the vat, crushing those below) […]

2022 Ordinal Cabernet Sauvignon, IGP Cotes de Thau 13.5%
May 25, 2024
This has a wonderfully fresh nose of ripe blackcurrants and a juicy palate with a smooth, ripe finish.  The grapes receive only a very gentle pressing to extract the juice and the tannins are therefore very approachable.  This is a juicy and easy-drinking red of great character. JW says... "100% Cabernet Sauvignon wines can be […]

30% each of Syrah, Carignan and Grenache and a 10% dash of Mouvèdre result in a vibrant red with excellent balance and a generous, gentle structure.  A fresh, herby, garrigue nose is followed by full-flavoured and intense pallet of typically southern flavours.  This is rich and concentrated with savoury depth.
