Try after 2026. 92 Neal Martin, vinous.com, February 2023 The 2020 Siran sees the reintroduction of the art series label. It offers black cherries and wild strawberry scents, cedar and pencil lead.

IDDA, Etna Rosso 2020

Since its first 2017 vintage, IDDA Etna Rosso has been causing huge excitement in both the Italian wine scene and lovers of (Italian) wine globally. The wonderful result of the teaming up of Etna... wine producer Alberto Graci and Barbaresco legend Angelo Gaja (Gaja's wines have been described as "perhaps the finest Italian wines ever made" Wine Spectator). The name IDDA comes from Sicilian dialect and means 'she'- a term of endearment that the locals use to refer to Mt Etna, the highest active volcano of Europe. Gaja had been intrigued with Etna since his friend, the oenologist Giacomo Tachis, first introduced him to the mountains' splendour in the late 90’, and it remained a rumbling vision forming in his mind. Remarkably Burgundian in both weight and style, IDDA Etna Rosso is made from 100% Nerello Mascalese grapes grown on the South West slopes of the volcano at an altitude of between 600m and 800m above sea level. Fermented in a combination of oak and concrete vats and then followed by 24 months of ageing in oak and concrete. Rich, beautiful, opulent, charming, fresh, harmonious with a lovely long lingering finish - the superlatives flow... “A perfumed nose of red berries, spiced cherries, hazelnuts and smoke. Medium-bodied with finely grained tannins and bright acidity. Poised and round with a silky texture on the mid-palate and volume to the focused, long finish. It really grows on the palate.

One of the most trusted names in Burgundy, Louis Jadot make this excellent white Bourgogne with, unlike several of their wines, a good proportion of their own vineyard-grown fruit rather than bought... in grapes, from sites in the Côte d’Or & the Côte Chalonnaise. Great structure, lively acidity on the finish, as well as touches of green apple, peach, white blossom and a little vanilla, thanks to part fermentation in wood, make this like a petit Meursault, in our opinion.

Michael Chapoutier Alchemy La Combe Pilate, Viognier, Chapoutier 2019

Viognier is the Rhone's most famous white grape variety for which it is justifiably famous and Micheal Chapoutier's biodynamic Alchemy is a superb example. Jeb Dunnock, the region's best known critic... described it as "a mini Condrieu..but not so mini” Micheal Chapoutier, best known for his iconic Hermitages, the visionary wine maker of the Northern Rhone bought this tiny vineyard, no bigger than most of our gardens, some 5 years ago. The plot is right next to his house and is the first plot he turned biodynamic, hence the label. Chapoutier personally makes the wine by gently pressing whole bunches of grapes and leaving the juice on the lees (the skins) for a few days. The result is a dry, very fresh, full bodied viognier with hints of ripe peaches and orange blossom and a gorgeous flinty minerality and a savory finish. For those of us who appreciate good viognier, this is a must buy – delicious on its own but if anything it is a food wine – from oysters and dover sole to mildly spicy dishes and all white meats. You will not be disappointed.

Olivier Pere & Fils, Origine, Champagne NV

Our new grower champagne - Olivier Pere Et Fils Brut Cuvee Origine is a a delicious and classic example of why the French buy good grower champagnes rather than the Grand Marques – and... incidentally the Oliviers sell half their grapes to Pol Roger which is considerably more expensive! The hugely talented Olivier family farm their 11 hectare Domaine on the right bank of the River Marne just downstream from Epernay. Their vineyards are on the steep, free-draining, south-facing slopes of the commune of Trélou-sur-Marne. The estate was created in 1910, and is now run by the fourth generation, brothers Bertrand and Julien. They believe in crisp, fresh, low dosage champagnes with complexity and character arising from extended ageing on the lees prior to disgorgement. ‘Cuvée Origine’ is a blend of 80% Pinot Meunier, 10% Pinot Noir and 10% Chardonnay with a long aging on leese (4 years) and dosage of 8g/l. This is complex and already well developed Champagne, while keeping its freshness and balance. It is pretty and creamy on the palate, with small, persistent bubbles and a full, rounded, long finish

Rosso Valdimonte 2018

This is a UK exclusive, Sangiovese blend with maturity at an unfathomable price which is utter perfection for drinking this summer. Wines like this are what working in the wine trade is all about –... a small volume of exceptional, mature red wine parcel from an artisanal producer at an incredible price tag. La Palerna sits high at 550-600m right on the Tuscan/Umbrian border. Thankfully for all of us, they are on the Umbrian side of the border and the price reflects this. At this altitude, the wines have a wonderful freshness and elegance. Yields are low, grapes are hand harvested and sorted, and such care and precision are taken in the winemaking which is evident in the quality of the wine. We have visited Bordeaux classified growths and Grand Cru Burgundies who take the same level of care in production. The overriding reason for all of this is perhaps down to winemaker extraordinaire, Mauro Monicchi who has worked across Bordeaux and the South of France, he now oversees winemaking for first class estates across Tuscany, namely Montalcino and Montepulciano. The quality of wines can also be put down to owner Luigi Merendelli’s philosophy to produce “only great wines”. I can confirm they do just that across the board, but this red is a home run at this price. The wonderful thing about central Italian reds are they are incredibly versatile when pairing with food and can be drunk all year around, indeed these are the wines to open at dinner parties or have at weddings.

Samuel Billaud, Chablis 2021

Beautifully fresh, crisp and pure, with a delicious acidity all enhanced by layers of crunchy oyster shell, silex and classic Chablis flintiness. Mouth-wateringly good. Offering "Outstanding Top... Value” this is not to be missed. Due to the extreme weather the vintage endured, production levels were vastly reduced, so please do not hesitate... Samuel Billaud, one of the very best producers in Chablis is making some of the most exciting wines to come out of Chablis today - the quality of his of his winemaking cannot be overstated. "Quite simply, Samuel Billaud is one of the best producers in Chablis at the moment. If you have not discovered the wines, what are you waiting for?” A master of his craft who is ‘right at the top of Chablis producers alongside the likes of Raveneau and Vincent Dauvissat’ – Neal Martin, Wine Advocate ( Vincent Dauvissat’s Chablis 2021 sells for between £1,171 - £1,262 12x75cl per case including duty & VAT, which makes Billauds even more compelling!) Billaud's Chardonnays lie at the mineral end of the Chablis spectrum, they are uncompromising and cerebral, as are the finest Chablis wines. His is a distinct style in which the wines have both a creamy, leesy weight while retaining a contrasting, linear, focused, mineral brightness. The freshness comes from both the right picking date and additional quality control through hand-harvesting.
