    L’Alezan Tango 2019

    Imported directly and exclusively by Wayward Wines. Tango is a limited cuvée that Remi & Patricia bottle under their ‘La Tangente’ label, meaning the fruit has come from an alternative source outside of their own vineyards. In...

  • Benoit Camus Vagabond 2017 | Wayward Wines

    Benoit Camus Vagabond 2017

    The first vintage we’ve received from this enegmatic producer, who until relatively recently was working hard in the vineyard but not bottling any wine under his own name. 2017 was another hot year in the South of Beaujolais, and this is a Gamay of...

  • Jean-François Coutelou Couleurs Réunies 2018

    A huge blend of grapes from a mixed planting, some red and some white - all in! This one is all about immediacy; densely packed with layer upon layer of vibrant red and black fruit, with some lifted nice top notes from the white grapes in the mix...

  • Matassa Cuvée Romanissa 2017 | Wayward Wines

    Matassa Cuvée Romanissa 2017

    A lesser-spotted Matassa cuvée that blends Carignan with Lledoner Pelut, an obscure grape that loosely translates as ‘hairy Grenache’, so-called as it is a mutation of that particular grape and owing to its highly distinctive,...

  • Wayward Wines | Le Mazel Cuvée Larmande 2017 | £20

    Le Mazel Cuvée Larmande 2017

    Vital, energetic Syrah made with the usual Mazel technique of semi-carbonic maceration to give the wine a dialled-back tannic structure and plenty of vivid fruit to the fore. Unlike the older vintage of Larmande we also carry, this wine is left to slowly...

  • La Vrille et le Papillon Impair NV

    Impair is a blend of two different vintages of Cabernet Sauvignon, this particular bottling is 2015 and 2017. The older vintage sees a more typical ten-day maceration before being pressed off to old oak barrels. It is this part of the assemblage that...

  • La Vrille et le Papillon Chapeau Melon 2018

    A delicious little entry-level Merlot, full of all the red fruit and herby spice you’d expect from the area. The grapes ferment spontaneously in steel tanks and there is no barrel ageing with this wine, keeping the fruit profile fresh and high in...

  • Wayward Wines | Daniel Sage Prospérité de l'Entreprise 2018 | £31.50

    Daniel Sage Prospérité de l'Entreprise 2018

    A bit more dark and concentrated than some of the other Sage reds, here bringing thicker-skinned Merlot & Carignan into the mix, but nevertheless shows that trademark lightness of touch that makes his wines so distinctive, as well as so delightfully...

  • Patrick Bouju Super B 2018

    Granitic Gamay a la Bouju coming from his own vines over the volcanic soils of the Auvergne. The grapes are all destemmed, lending a softness that tempers the tension in the acidity. The fruit is bright and nimble with a fresh tartness that catches the...

  • La Calmette Trespotz 2018

    New-school Cahors. All of the grapes come from their own vineyards, and all within Trespoux-Rassiels in the Cahors appellation. This is at the highest altitude in the region, roughly 340-360m, a point that experiences a very high diurnal range and hence...

    Ploussard from a fifty year old parcel in Rotalier, this spent three weeks on skins as whole bunches in open top fermenters, before being pressed off to Georgian qvevri to finish fermentation and nine months of élevage. It is almost impossibly...

  • Wayward Wines | Jean-François Coutelou Classe 2018 Natural Organic Wine

    Jean-François Coutelou Classe 2018 MAGNUM

    Classe is a red blend, but with predominantly Syrah, and that is what comes through the most noticeably here. Lots of dusty blackcurrant fruit on the nose, glossy and vibrant in the glass with loads of generous, toothsome fruit, propped up by a solid...

  • Domaine des Grottes Brut de Cuve 2019

    Gamay given a 5-day maceration before pressing into cement tanks then bottled young like a primeur. Light, pure and delicious. Romain Des Grottes is not a typical Beaujolais producer. Let’s start with the vines: after experimentation with...

  • Wayward Wines | Frédéric Cossard Bourgogne Rouge Bedeau 2017 Natural Wine

    Frédéric Cossard Bourgogne Rouge Bedeau 2017

    Frederic Cossard is a larger than life character. He is a man with an infectious joie de vivre, with a real passion for life and a love of wine that runs deep. Fred wasn’t born into a family of vignerons and so had to start from scratch, no...
