About our wines
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 - so much so that we were shortlisted
for the Specialist Wine Merchant Of The Year category of the 2011 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 8
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 so far in 2013
The first 3 months of 2013 have been all go,
with around 25 new wines, from 6 different growers already in - and with
more to come before too long. Here's what's new in 2013 so far (in no particular
order - they are all good!).....
From Languedoc, we have several new vintages from Domaine
Gayda, which means that we once again have the full range in stock. You
can try them by the bottle, or why not try a mixed
case at 10% off. We also have some fabulous new wines from Chateau
Rives-Blanques, including the latest vintages of Blanquette and Crémant
de Limoux, plus some cracking Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc whites. You
can also try a mixed
half-dozen, again at 10% off.
From Roussillon, we have new wines from the consistently brilliant Domaine
Sol-Payré - and once again, you can also try a mixed
half dozen at 10% off. We also have some new vintages from Domaine
Mas de Lavail, including a really gorgeous Carignan and yet
another wonderful Vintage Maury. And yes, you've guessed it - a mixed
half-dozen at 10% off.
And in early March, we took delivery of new vintages from Chateau
Peyros in Madiran and the quite wonderful Domaine
de Montesquiou in Jurançon - quite simply, one of (if not the)
best growers on our list, plus (bien sur!) a specially-priced 6-bottle
