Welcome to where we focus on wines from the Languedoc and to our new list, which we expect will run through until the Spring 2013 buying season and the Chancellor’s next duty ’hike’. From our visit to Vinisud 2012, the biennial wine fair in Montpellier last February, we’ve found a new producer of Blanquette de Limoux at Domaine de Martinolles, and another source of wines to develop our listing of less common regional grape varieties at Domaine de Castelnau. There are also some interesting additions from our existing producers - look out for the Vin Doux from Agly as something different - and a few wines have been discontinued.
Our fundamental theme continues; all the wines benefit from the superb growing conditions in Languedoc-Roussillon, giving ripe abundant fruit flavours. On top of this, our producers operate modern viticultural and vinification practices, with the minimum use of agrochemicals, to get the best out of their vineyards and to produce high quality wines. The New World in the Old World! There is something for everyone here.
Languedoc-Roussillon continues to provide tremendous value-for-money, particularly in these economically stressful times. We don’t pretend to offer the cheapest wines, we’ll leave the supermarkets to fight that battle, as we are more interested in giving real value. The excise duty and related VAT are now £2.30 on every bottle, regardless of price, so the amount left for the wine itself in a £5 bottle gets less and less. Spend a pound or two more and you get so much more quality to enjoy in your glass.
The list is arranged by producer and, at the end, we have put together a few mixed cases. As we replenish the stock new vintages will come on stream. All bottles are 75cl unless shown differently. Each wine is individually described and priced, showing the bottle price. The prices are fully inclusive except for delivery charges.
Our minimum order quantity is six bottles, but you are free to mix and match as you like. In general, within the area of North East Cheshire and Greater Manchester, from Knutsford to Rochdale and from Warrington to the Lancashire/Cheshire Pennines, we will deliver to your door at a cost of £5. Orders over £150 will be delivered free of charge. Outside this area we will charge at cost: for up to 12 bottles, it costs £8 to most larger urban areas, and £10.30 to other areas. We aim to deliver within a week of receiving your order.
