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 for spring 2018 Domaine Fortuné is our latest exciting new discovery, from a relatively obscure hotbed of fine winemaking in the eastern Languedoc, between Montpellier and Nîmes. These are some of the purest and most delicious Languedoc wines - white, rosé and reds all of a very high quality. Prices range from £12 to £18.
We have new vintages from Chateau l'Argentier - a trio of reds (all of which are aged without the use of oak barrels) plus a fabulous 2017 Rosé made entirely from Aramon(!) Prices range between £13 and £17.
We have just received a selection of new vintages from Domaine Turner Pageot, with a range of quirky dry white, rosé and red wines, including a brilliant pair of single vineyard Grenache reds that could not be more different, and a weird and wonderful Marsanne "orange wine". At prices between £14 and £23, these wines offer great quality-price ratio.
Domaine de Cébène has been a feature of our list since its inception in 2008. Since then, winemaker Brigitte Chevalier has become one of the benchmark producers in Faugères, with scores in the 90's by the likes of Tim Atkin MW and The Wine Advocate, not to mention very high praise from Jancis Robinson MW. We have the latest vintages - 3 different Faugères and a brilliant Pays d'Oc from sandy soil near Béziers. Prices from £15 to £32.
Finally, we have new vintages from Domaine de La Garance in Caux, just north-east of Pézenas. Another biodynamic estate, La Garance produces white wines that are quirky, elegant and full of life, whilst the reds are ripe, beautifully balanced and show excellent ageing potential. We also have a few bottles from older vintages, as far back as 2004. Prices from £14 to £23.
