  • Frédéric Cossard Jura Ploussard 2020 | Wayward Wines

    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,...

  • 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...

  • 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...

    Axel Prüfer - Le Temps des Cerises 'Fou du Roi' 2020

    Equal parts of Carignan from basalt soils, Grenache and Cinsault from limestone based soils, each undergoing 15 days maceration in whole bunches. With a beautiful perfume and elegant structure, it is a delicate, translucent ruby red that really sees the...

  • Jean-Yves Peron I Vicini Barbera 2019 | Wayward Wines

    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...

    Anders Frederik Steen I hate to say Goodbye 2019

    A blend of Carignan and Grenache Noir from Le Mazel in Valvignères. The final press of Carignan was blended with equal parts of Grenache Noir and aged in old barriques for one year. A deep ruby in the glass, the nose is thick with sunkissed fruit...

    Patricia & Rémi Bonneton - La Tangente Encore! 2021

    Imported directly and exclusively by Wayward. The latest wine from Patricia & Remi's negociant label; absolute pitch-perfect glouglou material for what we hope will be a sunny spring and summertime. This is floatation-method Grenache - by that we're...

  • Christophe Lindenlaub La Tetine a Kiki 2020 LITRE | Wayward Wines

    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...

    Patricia & Remi Bonneton - La Tangente Potion 2020

  • Domaine des Grottes Brut de Cuve 2021 | Wayward Wines

    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...

  • Elisa Guerin Chiroubles 2020 | Wayward Wines

    Elisa Guerin Chiroubles 2020

    Gorgeous, powdery aromas of crushed rose petals and peppercorns leap from the glass, the texture of the wine is beautifully soft and silky, with integrated, lightly gripping tannic structure. There is a rusty, iron-like mineral quality beneath it all,...

  • Domaine Bobinet Hanami 2020 | Wayward Wines

    Domaine Bobinet Hanami 2020

    Hanami is a vin de soif, a wine to drink in its youth, to enjoy its fruity and fragrant character. Made from several parcels of Cabernet Franc, vinified with the goal of preserving the aromas of fresh grape juice. The texture is rather light, the...

  • Le Mazel Cuvée Briand 2018 | Wayward Wines

    Le Mazel Cuvée Briand 2018

    Briand is 100% Grenache and is, in our opinion, a perfect example of how this varietal can express itself in this part of the world. The fruit is spicy and red, with a beautiful perfume full of wild fennel and clove. The wine is neatly cut through with...

    Julie Balagny En Remont Fleurie 2020

    This is the most dense and powerful of these releases from Fleurie, with layers of fruit, flowers and minerals that reveal themselves slowly over time. From the impossibly steep slopes Julie tends high in the hills of Fleurie. The oldest plants...

  • Julie Balagny Cayenne Fleurie 2020 | Wayward Wines

    Julie Balagny Cayenne Fleurie 2020

    Cayenne comes from forty year old vines grown over basalt and here the black, volcanic soils have a marked effect on this wine, meaning that even in this warmer vintage, it remains lively, fragrant and full of charm. From three hectares of vines planted...

  • François Saint-Lô Bois Guyon 2017 | Wayward Wines

    François Saint-Lô Bois Guyon 2017

    The 2015 vintage of this spectacular cuvée was one of our favourite of recent memory, so much so we skipped the 2016 and here we are diving straight into the 2017 vintage. A drier year results in a darker, more muscular finished wine and the...
