  • Domaine Bernard Defaix Chablis 1er Cru Côte de Lechet

    “Worth bowing down for and submitting to the greatness. So flinty or rather that smell of rain on hot ground, lemon peel, half a teaspoon of really good honey, chalk dust in the air, vanilla and a yuzu finish. My lordy, your lordy any lordy this is a brilliant wine.”


  • Alexana Terroir Series Chardonnay Willamette Valley

    “High class, white Burgundy alternative from a winemaker who knows how to handle expensive oak barrels. Buttery popcorn, peaches and cream, lemons and lime pith and a little minerality. This is super classy and a genuine standard-bearer for non-French oaked Chardonnay.”


  • Peter Franus Wine Napa Valley Albariño

    “Be warned - there is oak here! But what lovely oak it is. Buttery and toasty with a round, creamy texture that backs up ripe citrus and stone fruit. And it all just hangs around for ages after each decadent sip. Lovers of big whites will be richly rewarded here.”


  • Twill Cellars Syrah - Oregon

    “Drink it now or save or for later (ie 2030!), this is genuine quality from a top producer getting new and wonderful things from a variety often seen (and treated) as an old favourite. We can't think of anyone else making Syrah that tastes like this - elegant restrained and classy with great, slightly lifted fruit, super-fine tannins, excellent acid balance, spice and development. Tremendous.”


  • Seven Hills Winery Founding Vineyard Merlot

    “A beautifully mature Washington State Merlot from Seven Hills winery that gives flavours of plum, dark berries, mushroom, aniseed and has fresh acidity. An awesome food-friendly wine that has enough structure to cut through plenty of protein. Decant this to see the fruit flavours increase over time.”


  • Peter Franus Wine Red Hills Mourvèdre

    “Rarely seen made on its own, Mourvèdre usually plays a supporting role in a blend of grapes. Here, however, it shines. Complex, spicy, fruity and developed, it's got it all. Bit of a bruiser, but charming, characterful and impressive.”


  • Poggio del Moro Galio Rosé

    “This winery has really taken its rosé seriously here. A thinking drinkers drink and not for guzzling down too quickly. There's bright acidic crunchy cranberry, tangerine peel, green leaf, posh cream and smoke. This can be our little secret together. Shh!”


  • Mas de Cadenet Provence Rosé

    “A classic example of bone dry Provencal rosé. Apples 'n pears and citrus and a hint of red berries. Warm, long evenings and sun-baked beaches with azure blue sea-scapes and the occasional seagull swooping overhead. Summer holiday bliss...”


  • Fleur De Mer Fleur De Mer Provence Rosé

    “One of the more easy-drinking Provencal rosés. Refreshing, dry, citric and with a hint of wild strawberry and raspberry. Long summer afternoons in the sunshine are rarely accompanied by a better wine.”


  • René Jolly Blanc de Blancs

    “Brioche bread used to be for dipping in coffee, now it's wrapped around every burger going. That bit of bakery is exactly the smell you get from this Champagne. There's no patty and sauce in this bun thankfully just; lemon curd, pear, lime zestiness and apricot. Not that we are doctors but this should be taken every evening before dinner, where possible.”

MEET THE PRODUCERS

André Levasseur

David Levasseur is a steadfast nonconformist. His micro-grower Champagne house, which was established by his grandfather in the 1940s and which assumes its name from his father Albert, produces little more than 30,000 bottles per year from solely his own 4 hectares of vineyards spread over 18 plots around the villages of Cuchéry, Fleury-la-Rivière and Châtillon-sur- Marne.

These are organically farmed and certified for their high environmental value. Crucially the Marne Valley is a vital source of the wider region’s Pinot Meunier, as the minor blending grape thrives in the local area, and it is on Meunier that David unusually bases most of his wines. Here in the heart of the Montagne de Reims national park, David has embarked on a sensory journey to shine a light on the terroir of Champagne.
