Denis Jamain Les Pierres Plates Reuilly Blanc has a Chablis-like minerality derived from Kimmeridgian soils in the south of the Reuilly appellation. Very precise, mineral, transparent and with lovely purity. It bursts with vibrant, gooseberry fruit and tangy green apples. It is a perfect summer aperitif or is a great fish and seafood white.

Attractively aromatic, rich dry Sauvignon showing the fruit character of fully ripe grapes. Exotic fruits in abundance on the nose and just a hint of mint. On the palate its fresh and tangy and the finish is fruity and moreish. The obvious accompaniment to asparagus with hollandaise but should be tried with goats cheese and works well with tuna dishes.

This wine has a subtle, pure nose with aromas of white flowers and citrus fruits. The taste is racy and crystalline, clear with a citrus fruit taste initially followed by a saline and mineral finish. Nothing overly exuberant: just clarity and precision.

The Girard family have 6 different parcels of Sancerre vineyards. Their hillside vineyards are located on classic clay and chalk soils, giving the grippy, mineral style expected of true Sancerre. Domaine des Brosses has used a machine harvester to collect the grapes since 1989. This is so that the Sauvignon Blanc is brought to the winery in the coolness of night-time, thus retaining the classic citrus and gooseberry aromas and flavours of Sancerre. Pale yellow in colour. The nose is fresh and full of hay, citrus and mineral notes. The palate is medium in body with crisp lemon acidity and an appealing creamy complexity alongside the ripe peach, elderflower and mineral flavours which last well on the long finish.

This is the village adjacent to Sancerre and Pouilly Fume where wines of similar style are made but because of Quincy’s ‘lesser’ name at much reduced cost. This wine is a testament to that; the flavours and aromas achieved in this wine are equivalent to any top flight Sancerre, with ‘grippy’ edgy grapefruit notes and steely crisp fruit. When Anton Beukes, winemaker at the Môreson Winery in South Africa, tasted this wine at supper, he said; ‘This is the wine I would love to make’ - Anton makes some very serious wines, so what an accolade! Winner of Best French White Wine at ‘France under one roof’ London 2005.

Chenin Blanc dominated dry and minerally with a tang of honeyed melon on the palate that leads to the crisp floral finish. The harvest is made entirely by hand yielding 60 hl/ha and 150kg of grapes produced 100 litres of juice in this vintage. Fermentation was controlled at between 18-20 degrees to preserve the precious aromas.

Vibrant and racy fruit, bready yeast flavours and zesty appley freshness is accompanied by the waxed-lemon flavours of Chenin Blanc - a variety so clearly suited for sparkling production due to its fine acidity. The addition of a fifth Chardonnay gives the fruitiness and depth.

Coteaux du Layon is the widest wine area of the Anjou region. Along the Layon river, the vines are protected by the hills in this lovely contryside. Although wine makers produce a good semi-dry white wine, Coteaux du Layon is best known for its sweet white wine which is over 15 centuries old. The vignerons leave the grapes on their vines until over-ripe. This provides the wine with its concentrated taste and high sugar content. This superb dessert wine has a delightful mix of aromas, including honeysuckle, peach, quince-jelly, acacia honey and orange blossom. The mouth is gently sweet with lovely tropical fruit flavours, and is held in supreme balance by zesty citrus fruits and acidity.
