Wine of the month
  1. Fernando de Castilla
    Oloroso Antique Jerez de la Frontera
    0.5l White
    €28.25 €23.35
    This sherry is made from the native grape, Palomino Fino which comes from older vines on the estate vineyard “Pago Balbaino” of white albariza soils containing 70-80% limestone. The wine is fortified early on in the winemaking process with grape spirit so that the cap of ‘flor’ yeast doesn’t grow (as in fino sherry) and it undergoes oxidative ageing. It is aged for 30 years using the soleras and criaderas system. It is a complex sherry, with aromas such as dry fruit, hazelnuts, chocolate and sweet spices . The sherry’s concentration gives it a very pure, almost saline finish on the palate which make the sherry incredibly appetizing. A beautiful sherry to serve with nuts or aged cheeses.

Domaine du Pélican, Jura

  • Meaningful wines
    I’ve never been a fan of “dry January” believing that it is not which wine you drink that matters but how you drink. As the long dark nights drag on and the weather is dull, we all need a bit of comfort at the beginning of the year. Moderation is of course important but there is so much more to wine than alcohol and calories.

  • The 2018 Harvest in Bordeaux – Weird and Wonderful
    You would have thought that with over 20 harvests under my belt, (for Jacques is it over 40), we have seen it all and it is easy to blithely compare the current vintage to a previous one. The 2018 vintage was so bizarre that even the 2016 vintage which was another “Janus” vintage of one-half year wet and one-half year dry, makes for a difficult comparison.

  • Why Family-owned wineries work best
    For the last year, I have spent time visiting ten extraordinary family-run wine estates throughout Europe researching a book on Great Wine Families which will be published this month by Lannoo in Dutch.  I wanted to examine the changes that have happened in the wine world over the last few decades and understand the reasons why some producers have had enormous success and have risen to the top of the wine hierarchy.  What are the ingredients that help some producers survive?
