The latest vintage of Chateau de Fontenille Bordeaux Clairet 2022 is now in stock. Good news for those who like a deeper Rose/light red with very soft tannins with their Turkey dinners!  As many of you will know from drinking previous vintages, an extra long 3 day maceration, ageing on fine lees makes this a wine of  real depth and character. Also for the many fans of Stephane Defraine’s famous Bordeaux whites, the 2022 Fontenille Entre-Deux-Mers also arrived on the same pallet, so is available now.

A new wine on our list is a new Lalande de Pomerol wine from the 2020 vintage, that Patrick Merle is making at Chateau des Moines. This is 100% Malbec aged in clay amphora rather than in oak barrels – very unusual and only to be made in the best years from a one hectare plot of Malbec vines. [read more …]

Inspite of Brexit and Covid causing customs problems and cost increases on freight between France and the UK, we managed to ship a mixed pallet of new wines into EHD Bond early June. We believe that we have found some real gems from Duras, Alsace,Castillon, St Emilion and Languedoc:
Firstly 3 great value Côtes du Duras from Domaine de Grande Mayne at only £10 a bottle – a Rose, a Sauvignon and a silky Merlot/Cabernet red- really drinkable wines that will suit everyone’s taste! [read more …]

Happy Easter everyone!!  We had run out of  Champagne by March so things were getting serious!  Happily our first shipment from France after Brexit is due into our Bond warehouse later this week and it is all Champagne!  So the ever popular Domi Moreau Cuvée d’Argent brut is back in stock just in time for those long awaited al fresco picnics under the “rule of 6”. 

We also have more of the Domi Moreau Rosé Champagne, which always goes well in summer, and for those who prefer pure Chardonnay there is the Domi Moreau Blanc de Blancs from the plots of premier cru Chardonnay vines that Max and Nathalie Domi grow on the Cotes des Blancs south of Epernay.

Chateau de Fontenille in Entre Deux Mers, Chateau Des Moines in Lalande de Pomerol, Chateau de Lauga in Haut Medoc and Chateau les Cabannes in St. Emilion.

From Fontenille we have the 2019 vintages of their excellent Entre Deux Mers and the Bordeaux Clairet [read more …]
