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 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.
Recent arrivals It's been a while since our last major shipment, but we've now put that right, with a dozen or so new wines from 4 growers in eastern Languedoc.
Firstly - and rather importantly, given how popular this grower is amongst our customers - we have the latest releases from Terre Inconnue. Whilst hardly the cheapest wines on our list (prices range from £13 to £35) this is undoubtedly one of the finest growers in the whole of Languedoc. With tiny yields, biodynamic viticulture and minimal (i.e. pretty much zero) use of SO2, these wines are rich, complex and quite unlike any wines you may have tasted. And in order to encourage you to give them a try, we have put together a 6-bottle sampler with a saving of 10% on the individual bottle prices.
From the same "stable", we have 2 new growers; Domaine Adèléandre fashions a brilliant Grenache to rival the finest Chateauneuf and undoubtedly the best Cinsault we have ever tasted, whilst Rosemary shows exactly what Merlot can do when it is able to ripen properly(!) At prices between £17.95 and £22.99, these wines offer a brilliant quality-price ratio.
Finally, we have a delicous red and white pair from Domaine de Foltodon
- both of which punch well above their weight at just £11.50.
Bin-EndsWe still have a good few bargains in our Bin-Ends section. These will all still be good to drink, and many will even repay further keeping. Dab in!
