About our wines
Leon 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
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 for summer 2019
The wines of
Les Vignes de l’Arque have been a feature of our list since the
very beginning (i.e. for the past 15 years). We have over a dozen different
cuvées for you to choose from, with 5 different dry whites, 2 rosés,
5 dry reds and a fabulous late-harvest sweet Viognier. At prices between
£9.50 and £16.25, these wines offer perhaps the best quality-price
ratio on our whole list.
The wines of Domaine
Fortuné have quickly become one of the best-selling
growers on our list, since we introduced them a couple of years ago and we now have a couple of new white
cuvees and the latest vintage of the estate’s top red wine. These are some
of the purest and most delicious Languedoc wines it is possible to imagine
– and with a quality-price ratio that is hard to match, with prices ranging
from £12 to £18.50.
We also have the latest releases from the brilliant Jérome
Chardon at Terre
des Chardons, who produces a quirky, minerally Clairette
de Bellegarde and a trio of red Costières de Nîmes, which bear more than a passing resemblance to the
wines of the Northern Rhône. We have the latest releases of all of
these wines, ranging from £13 to £25.
Finally, we have put together some 6-bottle selections from
the above growers, in our popular Mixed
Case Offers section, with at least 10% off normal (individual)
retail prices. Great for trying a grower's whole range.
