Our current case of 6 whites offers a selection from crisp and bright through to a richer medium bodied white. There is the fresh and easy St JOHN Picpoul from Languedoc with its slight honeydew notes and citrus; easy to drink at the end of the day, over a lunch, with a sandwich or a thai curry.

Across the border in Provence we have included organic Les Genêts from Roquefort – this is 100% Vermentino and shows some classic ripe melon notes, more often associated with Italian Vermentino, yet it has Roquefort’s signature salty notes that gives this wine a wonderful freshness and restraint. For something a little different we have included Croisille’s Sauvignon Blanc from Cahors in the SW of France; definitely unusual as this is the home of Malbec, however this is fresh, easy drinking, small quantities made, and has a distinctive limestone mineral character and fresh acidity that makes this a beguiling white and a cracking example of sauvignon blanc. Speaking of cracking example, one of our favourites is the Muscadet from Haute Févrie – perfect to whet the whistle after a long day with its fresh, zippy acidity.

The other two wines are richer, medium bodied – Pithon’s Cuvée Laïs – Olivier’s signature white blend of Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris and Macabeu, is our ‘shape-shifter’ wine – it readily adapts to many dishes and also with its weight makes it easy to enjoy on its own. Dry, savoury, smooth and simply a joy. Finally, also from the Roussillon, and another Vermentino, is Le Clos Blanc – this offers an excellent contrast to Roquefort, the site is warmer and the wine shows riper, more overt characteristics with stone fruits and tropical flavours. This is a great alternative to Chardonnay and makes this a terrific option should you have a roast chicken on the table…!
