“The Touraine growers are flying the flag for undervalued Loire wines. Their fresh new labels match their clean, energetically crisp take on Sauvignon Blanc, such as this raucously gooseberry-driven ultra tart example. Well worth chilling in the fridge.” Tomas Clancy, The Sunday Business Post.

“This particular wine is big in restaurants these days and it makes a splendid aperitif and general food-friendly white. It’s dry and very zesty, crisp enough to tackle smoked salmon and with enough zing to cope with spiced olives. Fantastic value and an old favourite of mine. It has become better and better with each […]

“Bergerac, lying just outside the confines of Bordeaux, can offer some great value wines. The whites in particular are worth looking out for. Based on the Sauvignon grape, as used in Sancerre and Pouilly Fume, the best are fresh, aromatic and crisp. The Chateau des Eyssards is a perfect example, with floral grassy aromas, light […]

“A no-brainer for the money. Spring flower, kumquat and conference pear nose, a decent weight of fruit and a clean finish. Food-friendly. Would grace any restaurant list.” Ernie Whalley, The Sunday Times

“Very approachable. The blend works beautifully – apples and pears chopped up and soused with lemon-zested cream. Something biscuity. Lots of flavour.” Jancis Robinson.

“Zingy Gascon white blend where Sauvignon meets local Gros Manseng to produce pungently aromatic wine that tastes, among other things, of passion fruit. Gorgeous with goat’s cheese.” Tom Doorley, Irish Daily Mail

“A wonderful fresh, crisp, dry white, made entirely from Semillon (and therefore Sauvignon-free) with zesty lemon, green apple and melon fruits, finishing bone dry. It is low in alcohol and would make a perfect partner for seafood or as a mouthwatering aperitif.” John Wilson, Irish Times

“A blend of Colombard and Ugni Blanc, the former carrying most of the aromas and flavours. Ripe apple and pear aromas with subtle tropical touches on the palate and a spanking fresh clean finish. Alarmingly drinkable and perfect for a warm salad or to give a lift to root veg-based dishes.” Leslie Williams, The Irish […]

“An exercise in freshness and zing, this combination of Colombard and Sauvignon Blanc is all green gosseberries and blackcurrant leaf. In fact, it’s a wine that Paddy used to try to raise the standard of house wines in Irish restaurants. Cracking value and more grown-up than a lot of New Zealand Sauvignons.” Tom Doorley, Irish […]

“Hawke’s Bay may seem a bit warm for New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc but this wine shows greater restraint and elegance than most of the stuff coming from cool climate Marlborough. If you’ve had enough of the sheer pungency of the Kiwi style and want something that veers towards the Loire, this is your wine. It’s […]
