François Crochet Sancerre Blanc 2018
St. JOHN Picpoul 2018
St. Mitre Papillon Blanc 2018
Boulevard Napoléon Grenache Gris 2015
Triballe Toutes Aures Blanc 2019
Pithon Mon P`tit Pithon Blanc 2018

This case offers a selection of 6 whites, from the crisp and bright to the rich and medium-bodied. There’s the elegant St. JOHN Picpoul de Pinet from the Languedoc, with subtle honeydew and citrus notes. Easy-drinking, it’s a happy partner to a lunchtime sandwich or Thai Curry.

We’ve included a lovely Sancerre 2018, a ripe year, from the Crochets, ever the accomplished vignerons, the wine has much, underlying delicate citrus notes, tension, focus and length, simply a pleasure. For cheering comparison, we’ve chosen St Mitre’s Papillon Blanc, also championing the Vermentino grape but made in a direct style. This is your quaffing, crisp white.

To Roussillon and Olivier Pithon’s ‘baby’ white, made from the same varietals as Cuvée Laïs but with fruit from his neighbour’s vineyards. One of two blended wines in this case, Olivier blends Grenache Gris, Grenache Blanc and Macabeu with great insight. The versatile P’tit Pithon works well with or without food. Dry and savoury, with a hint of the sea, it’s a joy!

The second blend is from the Eastern side of the Languedoc, towards the Rhône Valley. A blend of Marsanne, Roussanne, Vermentino and Viognier, Triballe’s Toutes Aures Blanc hints at Summer with notes of honeysuckle, balanced with citrus. Trevor has worked with Sabine and Olivier for almost 20 years - this remains a staple on our list.

From La Livinière (first “Cru” village of the region Languedoc-Roussillon), is our own Bouelvard Napolèon, Grenache Gris – ripe, plush and mouth-filling, yet fresh with minerality and ginger spice. There’s complexity and depth, characteristic of some Meursault wines. This is a great alternative to Chardonnay and makes a terrific pairing with roast chicken…Delicious!
