The Languedoc is our most beloved region of France, the home of our own tiny and achingly picturesque medieval winery where we make our elegant, rich Boulevard Napoleon wines. Since our property and our hearts are so rooted in the land we find that much of our wine list is too. This region is the focus for our October case.

We present the first release of our new vintage Cinsault, the 2016 which is our current all occasion favourite. Fresh and medium bodied, this departs a little from our Carignan 2013 and Grenache Noir 2013, both of which have enjoyed a touch more time in the bottle before release - concentrated, rich and complex. The Sunday roast awaits! Cahors is the spiritual home of Malbec before the grape reached Argentina, Château les Croisille`s Silice is quite a different beast from that New World iteration - savoury and subtle. And another lush easy-drinker, the Petit Closi Rouge from Domaine Boudau.

To the whites! The Au Creux de Nid Blanc with its experimental grapes, fresh and textural, then brand new to our lists is the zippy Moulin de la Gustais, a classic Muscadet that speaks of oysters in bright, cold sunshine - not in the Languedoc but in the Loire - and defecting once again from the region is Provence`s Petit Sale 2017, the new vintage of our firm favourite, a salty wintry joy.
And finally, back in the Languedoc our supremely drinkable St. JOHN Picpoul de Pinet and Cuvee Emotion Rose, to toast the last sunny afternoons. Then to finish on a supreme high, the Boulevard Napoleon Grenache Gris 2015 with its complexity, richness and comfort, aged in old oak and showing hints of honeysuckle, spice and orchard fruits. The jewel in our crown and, we flatter ourselves, a true treasure of the Languedoc.
