The vineyards of the Dordogne can produce some of the most
attractive wines in
France. The Dubard family’s Domaine
du Gouyat Blanc
Sec needs little introduction to those of you who are existing customers: the
crisp gooseberry flavours of this white puts many a more expensive wine to
shame. A blend of 50% Sauvignon and 50% Sémillon.

Dubard’s Domaine du Gouyat rouge has wonderful fruit and is as good value
wine as any on the entire list.
His benchmark barrique-aged Gouyat has in recent years won a coup de
coeur in the Guide Hachette - France’s
highest wine accolade. The Pécharment is a brooding monster for laying
down: a complex and beguiling red.

Quite delicious and
dangerously addictive, this wine – we think the current vintage
is the best we have ever shipped - is bone-dry and the antithesis of bland
commercial rosés. Possibly the finest all round rosé in the world!

Monbazillac has long been
famous for its wonderful pudding wines that are made
in exactly the same way as Sauternes but at a far more affordable price.
Domaine Pécoula has delicious apricot fruit and good levels of botrytis.
