The Lou Piaf from Capmartin is a returning favourite from a fantastic winery & winemaker who we have known & tasted with many times over the years, here in Scotland & in France. He is passionate about organics & biodynamics. Under the skilled & insightful guidance of Simon Capmartin, his wines have kicked this most traditional of appellations into a new, more progressive age.

Here is the round up of what is inside the pack –

Tuffeau Blanc de Blancs Sparkling (France) 

A traditional method sparkling from 100% Chardonnay grown in Loire. The winery is currently converting to organics.

An astonishingly fruity nose of apple with the hints of citrus fruit, with waxy green apple skin, citrus fruits on the palate to complement the fine bouquet and long dry and soft finish.

Dandelion Orange (Argentina) 

A blend of 80% Ugni Blanc & 20% Moscatel. The wine displays an enticing amber colour with ochre appearances. Aromas of chamomile, linden, tea leaves, and pears take center stage, creating a sensory journey that is both aromatic and intriguing. Explore the palate with notes of chamomile reappearing, accompanied by hints of white fruits and nectarines. The wine boasts a well-balanced acidity that imparts freshness and a long aftertaste, providing a delightful and lingering finish.

Capmartin Lou Piaf (France) 

A blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Colombard & Gros Manseng.

A beautiful fresh white wine that is full of life, with crisp apple and pear fruit aromas, which mingle with delicate floral notes. On the palate the wine is lifted by subtle exotic notes of kiwi and pineapple, yet the overwhelming character is that of precision, linear minerality and elegance.

Natural, low-intervention winemaking is the very essence of his approach. Vinification with no added sulphur with all wild ferments.

Monologo Arinto (Portugal) 

This wine initially exhibits a slightly closed aromatic profile, which then opens to reveal citric and mineral notes, typical of the granitic soils it originates in. On the palate it’s fresh, with notes of papaya, lantana and silica, finishing nicely. It will age well in bottle.

On the nose, there are notes of thyme, lime and orange blossom. On the palate it shows good volume along with a vibrant acidity which holds throughout the tasting, granting structure and precision to the wine. It will age well in bottle.

This Arinto pairs well with lightly spiced dishes like Indian or Thai curries, or dishes with a bit of heat like spicy tuna rolls.

All Day Long Tempranillo (Spain) 

Neleman wines are Spanish organic wines of the D.O. Valencia with a Dutch heart. With special attention for local authentic grapes, reflecting the soil and region. Each wine has its own personality and you can taste the passion and love it has been made

Brilliant crimson with ruby hues in colour. Aromatics of bright red fruits, pretty floral with a fleshy, soft and silky palate. Displaying elegance, and good natural acidity promotes food pairing opportunities, making this wine ideal for enjoyment.

Francois Ducrot La Vie en Rouge (France) 

Organically grown Merlot from vines aged between 40 and 50 years old. Gradual and gentle extraction to obtain delicate tannins, 6 months aging in concrete tank on its lees.

This is the first creation of François. Merlot is a widely planted varietal in Languedoc & sometimes abused by winemakers as a ‘blending grape’, so François wanted to restore its fame & reputation. To do that you have to go “Little by little…” The palate is indulgent with juicy freshness & soft tannins. Exploding with red pepper & red fruits.

Grilled meats, duck, spicy dishes or vegetables with paprika sauces & cold cuts (charcuteries). Feel a bit too hot? Pop it in the fridge for 20 mins & you will feel like you’re having a basket of fresh fruit!
