Domaine J P & B Droin
Original giclée print on fine art paper. 30cm x 30cm - Edition of 50, signed, numbered and framed by hand in London. £145 60cm x 60cm – Edition of 10, signed, numbered and framed by hand in London £300 [tasting_note] During the Great War soldiers on long forced marches would slake their thirst by sucking pebbles. And this is what the great wine writer Harry Yoxall was put in mind of when tasting Chablis. Likewise the equally great Hugh Johnson - the taste of Chablis is the taste of minerals hewn from the centre of the earth. Chablis is Chardonnay but true Chablis, such as that of Monsieur Droin, is unique. It is a wine that speaks of place and that could come from nowhere else on earth.
If Grenache provides the flesh of the Southern Rhone and Syrah its visage, Mourvedre provides the spine. A grape which wants its feet in the water and the sun on its back, it reaches its apogee in Bandol, beside the silvery sea. And within Bandol, look no further than Domaine Tempier, credited by many with saving the appellation from acquisitive property developers. Original giclée print on fine art paper.

Burgundy is complicated; it is that simple. So, to better understand a region of 25 villages, 116 appellations and over 4,500 growers, where do you start? You start with a wine merchant (negociants), such as Louis Latour, who buy the tiny outputs of myriad growers, iron out their idiosyncracies and, via the quality guarantee of their own label, introduce the world to the wines that have moved princes and pauper alike to raptures that claret can only dream of. Original giclée print on fine art paper. 30cm x 30cm - £145. Edition of 50, signed, numbered and framed by hand in London. 60cm x 60cm – £300.

Oak Wine Barrel Cheeseboard
Specially commissioned by Top Note Design. These gorgeous cheeseboards/sharing platters are handmade for us in Umbria, Italy out of reclaimed wine barrels which have been used to store Sangiovese wine. Shaped to echo a wine bottle, they are naturally two tone; the wine-seeped top contrasts beautifully with the golden oak of the underside - both sides can be used for serving cheese or antipasto. Each hand-crafted board is unique and shows slightly different colour, grain and size. Finished off with the maker's distinctive, red dot signature all boards come with details of their provenance. Care for your board: This is a natural product. Do not allow the board to soak in water. Treat with olive oil from time to time.
In Burgundy the name is everything. Many familiar names, through marriage and inheritance, crop up in communes the length of the Côtes. Domaine Leflaive represents one of the pinnacles of white burgundy, the Domaine’s Bâtard Montrachet selling for incredible prices. So look elsewhere within the family. Olivier Leflaive, a cousin, has set up on his own and, with his DNA and contacts, now crafts seductive whites that more than hint at the stellar heights achieved by his cousin but which are nevertheless within the reach of us mortals.

Paul Jaboulet Aîne
Along with Chapoutier, one of the grand old names of the Rhone, as comfortably at home in the North as in the South. Now owned by the Bordelais, will the wildness of the Rhone yield to the polish of the Médoc? Opinion remains divided, as much to its likelihood as to the benefits of such a move.

Pierre Yves Colin Morey
Pierre-Yves represents a new breed. Soaring land prices coupled with the Napoleonic system of inheritance whereby assets are shared out equally amongst the next generation, mean that today's generation will rarely have enough land to satisfy their or their customers' demands. So growers such as Pierre-Yves buy in grapes from equally conscientious growers to augment their own meagre production and then raise intense complex wines (nevertheless in tiny quantities) that advertise white burgundy as the greatest white wine on the planet. But you won’t see foils like this anymore. In order to reduce the chances of premature oxidation, Pierre-Yves now seals all his wines in wax to ensure no air can get in at all. With such attention to detail, passion and drive the results can only go one way.
