What we are drinking
This amazingly tasty wine made from the Melon de Bourgogne grape has been a long-time favourite of ours ever since we first drank it in Japan. It is made by talented winemaker Mark Pesnot whose vineyards are quite close to the city of Nantes in the Muscadet region of France. This wine has intense minerality derived from the schist soils in which the vines grow. It is a happy wine that is a pleasure to drink as an aperitif in the sun or to accompany a wide range of foods such as oysters (as they do in Muscadet), white fish, charcuterie or chicken dishes.
Normally, the RRP for this wine is $33, however until the 18th January we have a special web offer for six of these wines shipped free of charge to most locations in Australia for $178.20 which is a 10% discount.

Lots of new arrivals
We have received another container of wines from France which includes a lot of old favourites including the much-loved Moussamoussettes from the Mosse family (as well as their other wines), more wines from both Tony Bornard and Philippe Bornard from the Jura, another shipment from Jolly Ferriol in Roussillon including their stunning rose pet nat, the ever-popular wines of Fanny Sabre from Burgundy, more Jura wines from Michel Gahier and l'Octavin, the lovely Gaillac wines from Patrice and Virginie at Causse Marines, the no-sulphur wines from La Paonnerie in the Loire, wines from Laurent Lebled (also from the Loire) including his orange Sauvignon Blanc, the new releases from Mylene Bru, a Cote Rotie from Jean-Michel Stephan, the latest wines from Domaine de la Cadette and Domaine Montanet-Thoden from Burgundy, the beautiful Muscadet wines from Marc Pesnot, the sparkling wines from Les Capriades and the next shipment from Jacques Fevrier from the Loire.
And if that is not enough we have also received the wines of two new producers. We have been fortunate enough to meet Jean Ginglinger whose family has been making wines in Alsace since 1610! He agreed to supply us with his amazing wines and we are very excited about their arrival. While he makes some classic Alsace wines he is not afraid to venture outside the square, so we will be presenting an orange Pinot Gris and an oxidative Riesling along with more classic wines.
In addition we are introducing a young producer from Roussillon, Michael Georget who is making extraordinary wines including an extremely delicate Syrah along with a number of single variety wines made from Grenache Noir, Pinot Gris, Macabeu and Mourvedre and a blended rose made from old vine Carignan and Grenache.
Overseas shipments possible
For some of you who follow this Web site but do not live in Australia we have arranged shipping to countries nearby where our producers are not currently available. Send us an email requesting details if you are interested.
