Bois de Boursan Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2011
Defiantly old school! With sublime freshness, purity and complexity. Old vines. Organic since before it was fashionable. Made traditionally, whole bunch, & long ageing in foudres. Soulful!
Bois de Boursan Châteauneuf-du-Pape Félix 2011
Special cuvée from 100 year old vines. Made traditionally. Whole bunch & long ageing in old oak barrels gives dark complexity and intensity. One of the world’s greatest!
Boyer Côtes du Rhône Les 3 Filles Blanc 2012
Fashionable, aromatic blend from cooler Southern Rhône terroir. Simple, modern winemaking emphasises fruit and freshness. A satin texture gives classy feel.
