  1. Des Grande Esperances Java Rouge 2019
    Des Grande Esperances Java Rouge 2019
    This is a cracking Blend of gamay 60% malbec 20% and cabernet Franc 20% made by the team at Domaines de Grande Esperances. They are geared towards quality production and organic farming base in the Loire Valley and working with about 24 hectares of land and 8 varietals. These are fun and delicious wines that don't take themselves to seriously but still over-deliver in spades.

    A lifted fruit punch of red fruits - think strawberry, raspberry, sour cherry and red currant that leap out of the glass. A wild spicy note carries the bold fruit turning round into lovely savoury peppery sprinkles. There is a light lick of tannin that keeps this all-in check. Yum!

  2. Pierre Marie Chermette Beaujolais Les Griottes Beaujolais 2019 375ml
    Pierre Marie Chermette Beaujolais Les Griottes Beaujolais 2019 375ml

    crewcap. This Beaujolais cherrybomb is drawn from 20- to 40-year-old vines grown on dark, granite soils around the Chermette homestead in Saint-Vérand (southern Beaujolais). The winemaking here has remained unchanged for decades, with traditional whole-bunch, semi-carbonic ferment in concrete tanks and then maturation in tank and ancient oak casks still the order of the day.

    As opposed to his age-worthy Crus from Moulin-a-Vent, Fleurie, et al, Chermette's aim here is to produce something light-bodied and cherry-fruited with reach-for-another-glass charm--something the juicy-crunchy 2019 nails with ease. From one of the region's great addresses, this is a punchy and buoyant red that goes down dangerously easily. PWS

    Pale peach skin color. Fresh citrus fruits, red berries and a hint of nectarine on the incisive, mineral-accented nose. Silky and focused on the palate, offering light-bodied strawberry, tangerine and succulent herb flavors. Finishes smooth and subtly sweet, with a repeating red berry note and good tenacity.

  3. Roche de Bellene Bellenos Rouge 2018
    Roche de Bellene Bellenos Rouge 2018
    The Bellenos Cuvée Rouge is primarily from the Beaujolais area in the south of Burgundy, where fruity, mineral-inflected Gamay Noir is grown on granite soils. It is blended with finely structured Pinot Noir from the Côte d’Or in northern Burgundy. The result is a fresh, fruit-forward “Vin de Plaisir” — a deliciously expressive wine for everyday enjoyment.

  4. Caves de Pouilly Les Tuileries Coteaux du Giennois Sur Loire Rouge 2018
    Caves de Pouilly Les Tuileries Coteaux du Giennois Sur Loire Rouge 2018
    The Caves de Poulliy wines are sourced from the relatively new appellation of Cotteaux de Giennois which sits in the upper Loire just north of Sancerre. It shares the same kimeridgian clay and limestone soils commone to the region which give the wines their distinctive, minerally twang.

    These are such cracking wines that are terroir driven and unique as well as being stupidly drinkable. Ther is a white that is baby Sancerre and this red which is blend of mainly pinot noir with a touch of gamay. It's all about the pure red fruits and crunchy earthy spice which jumps out at you. It's bright and brambly and you can smell the clay soils. Airy and easy but with a spike of fresh tannin that cuts the juicy fruit. All-in-all pretty easy to get through a bottle of this with a friend so you better buy two! PWS

  5. Rising Yarra Valley Gamay 2020
    Rising Yarra Valley Gamay 2020

    Tom Belford makes the wines and this is part of the Sticks Crew out of the Yarra. That sort of combo means you are guaranteed quality, gluggablity and great value.

    A notable patch of Yarra Valley gamay here.

    Pretty, floral and red cherry/raspberry scented and flavoured red. Crisp, crunchy texture, bright, light, sour-edged fruit character, slightly nettle-y, leafy thing through the wine too. Blood orange flavours and acidity finish the wine. Neat and tidy, vibrant feeling lighter red, right on the edge of ripeness. MIKE BENNIE, The Wine Front

  6. Chateau Thivin Cotes du Brouilly Sept Vignes 2019 375ml
    Chateau Thivin Cotes du Brouilly Sept Vignes 2019 375ml
    Thivin's 2019 Côte de Brouilly unwinds in the glass with inviting aromas of plums, red berries, warm spices and peonies. Medium to full-bodied, velvety and enveloping, it's bright and precise, with fine depth at the core and real energy, concluding with a long, gently tannic finish. A touch finer-boned and more dynamic than the gourmand, demonstrative 2018, this is showing very well. WILLIAM KELLEY, robertparker.com

  7. Jean-Marc Burgaud Villages Les Vignes de Lantignie 2019
    Jean-Marc Burgaud Villages Les Vignes de Lantignie 2019

    The vines in this monopole are 55 years old, planted in sandy topsoil over granite at a density of 10,000 per hectare. Whole-berry, semi-carbonic maceration for seven days, then aged in concrete for six months. Burgaud says: "The 12th century Chateau de Thulon, my great aunt’s property, is in one of the best villages due to its hillsides and granite soil. It produces a bright red wine with a fresh and fruity nose. Best drunk within two years of release.

    This wine was named in Wine Advocate's top 100 discoveries of 2020.

    Offering up pretty aromas of blackberries, peonies and subtle forest floor, the 2019 Beaujolais-Villages Les Vignes de Lantignié is medium to full-bodied, velvety and enveloping, with lively acids, velvety tannins and a long, mouthwatering finish. As usual, this saw a short six- or seven-day maceration with whole clusters, followed by élevage in cement tank. Once again, Burgaud has produced a characterful and viscerally drinkable Beaujolais-Villages that exemplifies all the merits – as well as the incredible value – offered by the appellation at its best.

  8. Chateau Cambon Beaujolais 2019
    Chateau Cambon Beaujolais 2019
    Chateau Cambon is the creation of a cult-Beaujolais triad; the late Marcel Lapierre, Jean Claude Chanudet and Joseph Chamonard. Like-minded in their pursuit of purity, this 2019 Beaujolais is fleshy and joyful - uncomplicated happiness in a glass.

    Today the estate is run by Marie Lapierre, Marcel's wife with help from her son Matthieu. They've rejuvenated old vines, some over 100 years old from forgotten vineyards between the crus of Morgon and Brouilly.  Chemicals are avoided in the vineyard. Biodynamic practices are employed and thoughtful winemaking in the cellar. Toil in the vineyard is preferred to work in the winery to prime the purity of the gamay fruit.

    Josh Raynolds noted its predecessor, the 2018 '…conveys a suave blend of richness and energy finishing impressively long and juicy, displaying finely interwoven tannins and resonating florality.' And NYT wine critic Eric Asimov is a fan too, he described the 15' as 'bright, earthy, lip-smacking, slightly rustic straight Beaujolais from Château Cambon, the kind of wine that you simply don't want to stop drinking.'


    Alluring notes of red and blue fruits, sweet spices and fresh earth tempt from the get go. A fleshy and joyful core is enlivened by an energetic line of acidity. There's a beautiful play on fruit, spice and earth with mineral flecks dotted throughout. Silky tannins sign off the wine, urging you to take another sip. A delightful  uncomplicated wine that is pure happiness in a glass. GABRIELLE POY, PWS

  10. Chateau Thivin 'L'Heronde' Cote de Brouilly 2018
    Chateau Thivin 'L'Heronde' Cote de Brouilly 2018
    A single site located mid-slope on Mount Brouilly with a southern exposure. The best grapes from this site go into this bottling, with the remainder used in the Sept Vignes. Rich, fleshy and succulent wine with a heap of exotic spice, blueberry and blackberry pie, and violet perfume. It’s ripe and juicy, almost sweet, but has ripe silty tannin and and a stony feel to go with that, and fine acidity through its core. Finish is full of fruit, pastry crust, and a whole lot more of that spice. Kind of exuberant now, but should come up very nicely with some bottle age. (94) GARY WALSH, The Wine Front

  11. Jane Eyre Fleurie 2018
    Jane Eyre Fleurie 2018

    Plump and primary, the fruit for Jane's 2018 Fleurie really captures the strength of the vintage with its upfront charm and silken texture. Like so many of the best 18s the lushness can hide the seriousness of the structure that Beaujolais rendered that year, the phenolics are sweet and saturated by the creamy, seductive fruit but they are there and supporting everything, keeping it all in check. The overall impression is of a wine that fills the mouth, providing an immediate rush of pleasure but that will only get better over a handful of years. Bloody lovely! ROSCOE

  12. Bernard Metrat Fleurie 'La Roilette' Beaujolais 2019 1500ml
    Bernard Metrat Fleurie 'La Roilette' Beaujolais 2019 1500ml
    From vines planted 1924 and 1936. La Roilette is regarded as one of the best sites in Fleurie, and this old vines cuvee (60-90+ years old vines) is produced from a patch of vines planted in pink granite-clay soil located beside the winery in the northern part of the appellation beside Moulin-a-Vent. 15% of this cuvee is vinified in barrel (none new) giving extra dimension to its freshness and perfume, will also age for 10+ years. This is Gamay at it's finest and beautifully perfumed best. PWS

    La Roilette cru sits on very deep black granite. Historically, La Roilette used to be part of Moulin-à-Vent, which borders it to the east. In 1920, when Fleurie was demarcated, La Roilette ended up in Fleurie. This wine comes from vines planted in the 1920s and 1930s, and it has amazing density and precision.
