Val de Combrès

Another trademark juice-bomb red, this time using the unlikely blend of Cabernet Franc and Syrah, the former grape a real anomaly in this part of France.

Patricia & Rémi Bonneton
La Tangente 'Ostara' 2022

A plush, glossy wine with bright aromas of cherry and raspberry, both fresh and confected, over a compact body of these gateaux-like fruits, with a subtle framboise-esque almond note hovering just out of shot.

Val de Combrès
Les Quilles de Joie 2020

Val's nod to the classical style of Luberon and the only of his wines to see time ageing in barrel, for a more structured, rustic expression. Despite this more old-school treatment, the trademark vibrancy is barely concealed beneath the surface, a burst of spicy cherry and raspberry is reined in with developed notes of tobacco and sweet leather.

Tom Shobbrook
Pocco Rosso 2020

Tom's more rustic, structured Syrah - a nice counter to the airy 'Poolside'. That lighter wine does play its part here, the whole bunches of old vine grapes are submerged in its fermenting juice, providing a balance of what he describes as 'youth and wisdom'. An abundance of umami flavours at play here underneath all the fruit. Find out more.

Jordi Llorens
Si Si Macabeu 2021

A rosado made from the white grape Macabeu? Si, si! The truth is that the skins from a pressing of Garnacha and Syrah have found their way into the tank and, a little bit like swishing a paintbrush around in water, their red pigment has seeped into the wine in the most delicate way. Find out more.

Petite Nature
Sorcières 2022

This is resolutely a red wine, despite 50% of the grapes being white, such is the influence of the Syrah. The Chardonnay and Viognier keep things delightfully silky and fluid, but the red grape provides a huge aromatic lift, that somehow seems to carry itself through into the palate, which is dense with dark blackcurrant fruits and juicy, saline black olive.
