They have upgraded this new house wine we now stock. Still a good price for this fresh and very drinkable French Country wine with plenty of background fruit.

 

Bellefontaine Sauvignon 2014/2015  (6) £6.39 £38.34
Exactly what you expect from this grape variety. Fresh and snappy yet with a good long flavoursome finish. Excellent value.      
       
Moreau Slelect Medium Dry White NV (12) £7.29 £87.48

This is made from a blend of grapes, and although described as medium, it is still a lovely fresh but rounded wine.

 

 Henry Fessy 2008/2009      
Both of these are really good value French Country Wines. The Sauvignon is fresh, enough fruit, but not as much flavour as the the Chardonnay which is rounder in style, and slightly aromatic.  
Henry Fessy Chardonnay (12) £7.99 £95.88
Henry Fessy Sauvignon (12) £7.99 £95.88
       
Marious Blanc 2013 (6) £7.89 £47.34

 Louis Latour Grand Ardeche 2008  (12) £10.49  £125.88 

The Vin de Pays is lovely light styled chardonnay whereas the Grand Ardeche has all the hallmakrs of a more expensive burgundy that needs some food to accompany it.

 

     
       
Les Garrigues Grenache Blanc 2011 (6) £9.20 £55.20
Well made, unwaveringly staight, with good background fruit, this is a lovely wine to have with all white meats and fish.

Pinot Noir Vin de Pays d'Oc      
Merlot Vin de Pays d'Oc

All are good value french country reds. The pinot noir has great elegance. Whilst the merlot is much softer in style thatn the cabernet sauvignon, which is more alike to a bordeaux styled wine.

This is a well made open fruity styled wine that is better with a little bottle age.
