  • Michel Guignier Oh...! 2019 | Wayward Wines

    Michel Guignier Oh...! 2019

    Deliciously light Gamay, with gentle tannic structure and the impression of tart hedgerow fruit juices filtered through stony granite, leaving distinct mineral traces. Bright, more-ish and incredibly easy to get on with. Michel does not work under the...

  • Benoit Courault Les Tabeneaux 2019 | Wayward Wines

    Benoit Courault Les Tabeneaux 2019

    A wonderful little blended Loire red of deep, savoury Grolleau and peppery, herbaceous Cabernet Franc. The wine is made in the semi-carbonic style, meaning that the fruit character is really upfront and the tannic structure less extracted and more...

  • Raphaël & Emélié Beysang Enculés 2018 | Wayward Wines

    Raphaël & Emélié Beysang Enculés 2018 LITRE

    A pleasure to receive the new vintage of this Wayward favourite, after Raphaël & Émélie first introduced their wine to us last year when they visited the shop for one of our most memorable tastings. 100% Gamay from vines planted in...

  • La Lunotte Eau Nice 2018 | Wayward Wines

    La Lunotte Eau Nice 2018

    The first wine Christophe Foucher has made using Pineau d'Aunis - an interesting fact (for those who appreciate a certain level of detail) is that the fruit from this particular vineyard parcel is normally bought by neighbouring...

  • Domaine Rietsch Tout Rouge 2019 | Wayward Wines

    Domaine Rietsch Tout Rouge 2019 LITRE

    No-brainier Alsatian red in the outsized litre format and a nice price to go with it. It’s one of those easy, nimble reds that blends Pinot Noir with a white grape, Pinot Gris, for some extra lift. The red grapes give a tart, crunchy quality, maybe...

  • Anne & Jean-François Ganevat Les Chonchons 2018 | Wayward Wines

    Anne & Jean-François Ganevat Les Chonchons 2018

    Delicate, detailed Poulsard from Ganevat using Jura fruit purchased from other growers outside their own domaine. In this case some of the vines were planted as recently as 2000 and as long ago as 1949. Red berry fruit and a lovely floral perfume, with...

  • Anne & Jean-François Ganevat Le Jaja du Fred 2018 | Wayward Wines

    Anne & Jean-François Ganevat Le Jaja du Fred 2018

    Ripe, fairly intense Pinot Noir from what was a very hot vintage. Less lean and mineral than the domaine wines and more generous and fruit driven in style, but certainly not lacking in complexity. The grapes are de-stemmed and the fermentation is...

  • François Saint-Lô Les Palennes 2017 | Wayward Wines

    François Saint-Lô Les Palennes 2017

    More sublime Cabernet Franc from this prodigious young Loire vigneron. The vines in the Palennes vineyard are well-established (around 70 years old) and the fruit is of excellent quality. Here the grapes go through vinification as a mixture of both...

  • 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...

  • Les Bottes Rouges Aléas 2017 | Wayward Wines

    Les Bottes Rouges Aléas 2017

    Red Arbois blend using all three of the key grapes of the region: Trousseau, Ploussard and Pinot Noir. This is a one-off cuvée for 2017 owing to a difficult year and frost killing off so many of the grapes that the usual single-varietal...

  • Wayward Wines | Karim Vionnet Beaujolais Villages 2018

    Karim Vionnet Beaujolais Villages 2018

    Pure, bright-fruited Beaujolais from 2 different parcels surrounded Morgon. Fermented and matured in fibreglass and cement using the reductive method, meaning the wine is kept in completely airtight conditions until bottling, preserving freshness...

  • 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,...

  • Sébastien David l’Hurluberlu 2019 | Wayward Wines

    Sébastien David l’Hurluberlu 2019

    Each year L`Hurluberlu has its own identity and it seems to be better each year. Dark and vivid purple, fresh and bright with cherry kirsch flavours; lots of dark fruits that are underpinned with a savoury, minerally character. The way Sebastien makes...

  • 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...

  • 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...
