About our winesLeon Stolarski Fine Wines is a family-run company which specialises in (and in the majority of cases is the sole U.K importer of) wines from some of the best small growers in southern and central France. Our wines have received a great many enthusiastic reviews from many esteemed wine writers, including Jancis Robinson MW, Tom Cannavan, Tim Atkin MW, Neal Martin of eRobertParker.com and Jamie Goode at the WineAnorak, not to mention being shortlisted for the Specialist Wine Merchant Of The Year category of the Decanter World Wine Awards.
New wines are added to our list on a regular basis, so why not join our mailing list, to receive occasional updates (we send out around half a dozen email newsletters a year).
And don't forget the Leon Stolarski Blog, for news, reviews, tasting notes, musings and the odd rant about numerous wine-related (and also a few non-wine-related) issues. You can also find us on where Leon posts regular updates about new wines and blog entries.
New arrivals - summer 2017 Domaine de La Marfée is one of the finest growers in the whole of Languedoc, with a selection of truly fine and elegant red wines (plus a quite brilliant white, and a rosé to rival the best). We have the latest releases of all the reds, plus the white and a little 2014 Rosé. Prices range from £11 to £28.
We have new vintages Mas Foulaquier - one of the best growers in Pic Saint-Loup The quality of wines produced across the board here is very high. Individual prices range between £16 and £22.
Domaine Saint Sylvestre is one of the rising stars of the Languedoc wine scene. From vineyards scattered amongst wild, oak-covered hills, just a few kilometres north-east of Aniane, Vincent and Sophie Guizard produce a red and white pair of wines to rival the very best in Languedoc. We have the latest releases from Saint Sylvestre, plus small stocks of a few earlier vintages. At prices between £18 and £22, they are are quite brilliant – and very age-worthy.
Terre des Chardons produce a quirky, minerally Clairette de Bellegarde, a delicious Provençal-style Rosé and a trio of red Costières de Nîmes, which – despite being grown in the hot south – bear more than a passing resemblance to the wines of Crozes-Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie. We have the latest releases of all of these wines, ranging from £13 to £25.
Minna Vineyard is a 15 hectare family estate situated in the heart of Provence, between Aix and Salon. The white wines are quirky, elegant and full of life, whilst the reds are ripe, beautifully balanced and show excellent ageing potential. We have just taken delivery of 3 white and 2 red vintages, all priced the same at £21.95 – truly lovely wines, and great value, when compared to other top wines from Provence.
