Fantastic Champagne! This had it all. 8 years on lees. Disgorged July 2015. Just impeccable! Rich, complex, layered, balanced and refreshing! Wowzer! — a month ago

Les Vignes d'à Côté Syrah 2018

It’s been a few years since I opened one of these, a perennial ‘cellar defender’ to open on a whim when duty calls. Sadly, this is my last – but my word, I must buy more! This was absolutely sensational, a wine that punches well above its weight and provides the sort of value only a select few wines in the northern Rhône can muster up.

A doppelgänger for rock-solid Cornas, and inky purple in colour, the nose is effusive with dark cherry, blackcurrant, kirsch, smoked bacon, iron and sweet balsamic – all of it fresh, and no trace of alcohol at 13.5% from a hot vintage. The palate is sappy, vibrant, detailed and harmonious with quite good concentration and a sneaky long finish.

I would love to see this thrown into a blind tasting with wines four times its price. At six years of age, this is on fabulous form now and may improve with further time in the cellar.

93 points – but 100 for value!

Les Vieilles Vignes Puligny-Montrachet Chardonnay 2020

Lived up to all expectations. Beautiful balance, nose and structure. Crisp stone fruits, slight mineral, hint of pineapple at end. Love it — 4 months ago
