Pouilly Fuissé is probably the best known named village appellation in this part of Burgundy. Verget have done this appellation proud with this delicious wine. The aromas of peach, grapefruit and spiced pastry reach out of the glass. The flavours don’t disappoint either, with toasted brioche, nectarine, baking spice and ripe peaches that linger on the lengthy finish. This wine has a balance and finesse that makes it worth the extra money.

This Chardonnay from the village of Charnay has a light bready aroma with sweet pear and grapefruit aromas that pleasantly linger. It has a balanced level of acidity on the palate and delicious notes of pears, ripe yellow apples, a hint of yellow peach and a note of light toast. This is certainly an improvement on the more generic Mâcconais wines but the price is a step up too.

This Vouvray is a medium dry style (made from Chenin Blanc) and has a lovely aroma of acacia honey, honeysuckle flowers, ripe golden yellow apples, and juicy pears. The palate delivered a great balance of mouth-watering acidity, ripe cantaloupe, apples, pears and touch of minerality in the background. This is delicious and worked well with the chunk of Port Salut (washed rind) cheese I had with it. You could easily try this a Goan fish curry or some fruity, spicy Thai food.

Wet earth, leather and blackberry jam. This is a delicious and rustic wine that is 30% each of Carignan, Syrah and Grenache and 10% Mouvedre. A strong savoury note backed by ripe black fruit and dusty, ripe tannins. This wine would go well with barbequed game.

Punchy nose of jammy black fruit and sweet vanilla and spice. Medium bodied with pleasant but simple black ripe fruit, soft tannin and low acidity. This a simple plummy and jammy wine - some easy drinking with saucy pulled pork or ribs.
