  • Elisa Guerin Beaujolais-Village 2021 | Wayward Wines86

    Elisa Guerin Beaujolais-Village 2021

    Supremely drinkable, with a nose of carbo bubblegum and dusty crushed peppercorn spice, followed by some deep black cherry fruit and a lively lick of acidity, all underpinned with stony minerals. The body of the wine is almost weightless, showing supreme...

    Frédéric Cossard Jura Ploussard 2020

    Ploussard from old vines in both Sainte-Agnès and Arbois. Unlike most in the region, Fred ferments the grapes as whole bunches and after a week of maceration, the wine is pressed off to concrete eggs for a short élevage. Achingly pure,...

  • Jérôme Saurigny Reclair 2020 | Wayward Wines

    Jérôme Saurigny Reclair 2020

    A pithier and darker, more savoury red than previous vintages from Jérôme. The two Cabernets really shine – liquorice, black olive, pepper – and this is lifted by the fruit of the Gamay and Grolleau. Cut through with a laser beam...

  • Patrick Bouju & Justine Loiseau Super B 2020 | Wayward Wines

    Patrick Bouju & Justine Loiseau Super B 2020

    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...

  • Patrick Bouju & Justine Loiseau Touski 2020 | Wayward Wines

    Patrick Bouju & Justine Loiseau Touski 2020

    A trio of grapes, including Nielluccio, a Corsican native that is thought to be a strain of Sangiovese. As that might suggest, this wine is a little deeper, more structured than the other reds. The grapes are all destemmed and vinified together. There...

  • Axel Prüfer - Le Temps des Cerises 'Jalava' 2020 | Wayward Wines

    Axel Prüfer - Le Temps des Cerises 'Jalava' 2020

    This is from the 3rd passage from the Cinsault parcel and typically the deepest of the wines seeing 20 days in whole bunch maceration. Still coming in under 13% this is still incredibly fresh and vibrant, with a little more structure than previous years...

    Jean-Yves Peron I Vicini Barbera 2019

    I Vicini is Jean-Yves' négociant label, specifically when he uses grapes that make the passage over the alps from Italy. It sounds unlikely, but a glance at the map reveals that the vines in Piemonte from which this Barbera was harvested are only...

    Christophe Lindenlaub La Tetine a Kiki 2020 LITRE

    Outsized litre format! The first vintage Christophe is harvesting from this plot — younger Pinot vines planted on schist and blue marl — a rather unusual soil for this part of Alsace. The grapes were macerated in whole bunches for 1 week...

    Domaine des Grottes Brut de Cuve 2021

    Gamay given a 5-day maceration before pressing into cement tanks then bottled early like a primeur (the name given to very young wine, sampled from the tank). Very light, very pure and very delicious. Be sure to serve this one chilled. Romain Des...

  • La Vrille et le Papillon Z Rouge 2018 | Wayward Wines

    La Vrille et le Papillon Z Rouge 2018

    Great to have some stock of a back vintage that is benefitting from that extra bit of time in the cellar. Z Rouge is a blend of roughly 50/50 Syrah and Merlot. The Merlot sees only tank, but the Syrah is fermented and raised in old barrels for 9 months,...

  • Elisa Guerin 'Vignes De Mon Pere' Moulin-à-Vent 2020 | Wayward Wines

    Elisa Guerin 'La Vigne de Mon Pere' Moulin-à-Vent 2020

    The aromas here are wine open, with a lifted floral perfume. With Moulin-à-Vent generally providing more meaty intensity, here an impressive balance of muscularity and elegance is on display, with a granular feel to the grippy tannins. Dark, inky...
