We tend not to be ‘shouty’ about our wines, however we realise that many of you may not be aware that we have a number of producers who have been quietly championing low sulphur, native yeasts, minimal intervention, alternate vessels; they have been at the vanguard of real winemaking. From Eric Texier through to Catherine and Pierre Breton, these have been friends of Trevor and St JOHN for many years. This case is a nod to those producers. A selection of 3 white and 3 red…. One of our new favourites, a much maligned grape but what an expression it is from Domaine Gerard Metz, great concentration, finesse and organic, the sublime Pierres Rousses with its delicate, feminine chenin blanc, with grown up savoury undertones. We’ll avoid references to Laïs (she’s doing fine), this is a terroir wine but subtle too, the three local grapes give richesse on the nose, the schist soils deliver minerality and precision in the fruit to a long and satisfying finish.

For the reds, in weight order we start with Eric Texier’s Chat Fou – the medium bodied, dark fruits, earthy with purity. And to finish the case we have a bottle of Loire’s Sebastien David’s Kezako. Biodynamic and made from Cabernet Franc, like PUR this is unfined and unfiltered and, interestingly, the wine is aged in barrel for 50 days on rolling racks (there is a tag ‘roll & roc’ on the back label) so the barrels can be rolled every day to maximise lees contact.
