Domaine Treloar
Domaine Treloar
Yorkshireman Jonathan Hesford and his New Zealander wife Rachel Treloar created Domaine Treloar in 2006. All life-change stories need a catalyst, and theirs happened on September 11 2001. At the time, Jon and Rachel were living 500 metres from the World Trade Centre in New York. They watched both planes hit the twin towers and lost several friends and colleagues in the disaster. They lived like refugees for the following 3 months and Jon lost his job. Nevertheless, he thanked his lucky stars that he didnít attend the meeting on the 110th floor that day. When the dust had settled (both literally and figuratively) Jon and Rachel decided to re-focus their lives to do something that inspired them. Both were very interested in wine Ė so they decided to become vignerons. Rachel is from New Zealand and, as Jon had always had a high regard for its wines, they moved there to get a good grounding. Jon took a postgraduate diploma at Lincoln University, where hard work and commitment helped him to top the class. He was then offered a job as a winemaker at Neudorf Vineyards, one of the finest estates in the country, and in two years there he learned hands-on what it takes to make world-class wines. Jon and Rachel chose eventually to come to the Roussillon region of France to run their own estate, since they found New Zealand too remote and land prices too costly to start a vineyard that would not produce any grapes for three years.

They farm approximately 11 hectares of vines, planted in the Aspres hills of the Roussillon, between the Mediterranean and the majestic Mont Canigou. The Aspres are characterised by poor, stony soils lying over a clay and limestone subsoil. This gives the wines a particular elegance and freshness for the region. The vines are densely planted and range in age from 10 to 40+ years. Treloar employ best practices taken from local knowledge, New World techniques, current research and endless striving to make the best wines possible from the local grape varieties and terroir. They also follow a sustainable vineyard management programme, predicting disease pressure before spraying, and are in the process of moving to more organic practices. No chemical fertilizers are used and they mow and cultivate to limit weed growth, erosion and vine vigour and are developing a natural wildlife habitat in the centre of the vineyards. We have imported every single cuvée from Domaine Treloar since the release of their first ever vintage (2006) and they now form an integral - nay, absolutely vital - part of our range. In the few short years since the beginning, the wines of Domaine Treloar have garnered much praise, from both critics and consumers alike, and its place amongst the top echelon of Languedoc and Roussillon growers seems assured.

Beautifully understated, with a complex array of fruit and non-fruit aromas and flavours. On the nose, we have a subtle mix of apple, clove, garrigue herbs and wet stone, leading to a nicely taut palate, with spiced apple and tangy citrus flavours, nicely judged oak and a stony/mineral edge which, combined with some dried herb and nutty elements, makes for a really quite racy, yet elegant wine. If anything, the non-fruit elements win the day, but that is a plus point in my book - this is a really quite serious wine, which will appeal to lovers of good white Burgundy and old-style Rioja - i.e. it is beautifully-made and "winey".

This is, in our opinion, the best vintage of La Terre Promise so far. Perhaps not quite as rich and fat as some earlier vintages, but it really is supremely balanced and elegant, with aromas and flavours of ripe apple, orange and tropical fruits, allied to subtle wet stone, herb, clove and curry spice notes. All of which come through on the palate, with spiced apple and citrus flavours, a hint of spice, a judicious lick of oak, a gentle tannic bite and cracking acidity. All of the elements are there, and it really is deliciously drinkable now. And although it definitely has the structure to age for a good few years, I find myself asking..... why wait?! A very classy wine.

Those who are familiar with Domaine Treloar's wines will know that the first (and until now only) vintage of MO2 was made in 2009. It was originally meant to be a dry Muscat, but - due to a cooling problem in the winery - the must became oxidised, thus rendering it unsuitable for making a table wine. So winemaker Jonathan Hesford decided to continue with the fermentation and make a fortified dry wine - something pretty unusual, if not unique, in Roussillon. And it turned out very well indeed - bone dry, but full of complexity and interest. Fast forward to 2013 and Jon decided to have another go - but this time, on purpose. And the result is somewhat different...... but equally interesting, if not more so. This one isn't *quite* bone dry, as we definitely have a few (but only a few) grams of residual sugar. That said, it has masses of interest and quirkiness - not to mention genuine complexity - with aromas and flavours of dried oranges and herbs, nuts, polished wood, eau de vie and all manner of vinous (i.e. non-fruit) nuances and earthiness - and a long, long finish that manages to be warming and cool/minty at the same time. As for what to pair it with..... well, I guess there are numerous possibilities! But is sure is good to drink on its own. An enigmatic wine, which everyone should taste at least once - if not more. A fabulous bargain!

Drink Can be drunk now, but will go until at least 2022
This inky-dark, semi-opaque wine has a nose of uber-ripe bramble and cassis, with notes of damp earth, polished leather, tobacco and freshly-baked bread. The palate offers a rasp of rich, ripe but gently rustic tannons cannot conceal a core of luscious black and red fruit flavours, with ample acidity providing a refreshing counterpoint, making for a youthful, vibrant mouthful of loveliness. Part of me says that this needs a year or two to soften (this note written June 2016) but the other part says - if you like a touch of tannic bite - why wait? It isn't for wimps, but you get a lot of bang for your buck, and it also has the potential to age nicely for a few years.

Drink Good now, with food, or up to at least 2020
Quite a dark translucent black cherry colour, with a tremendously expressive nose of fresh red and black fruits steeped in eau de vie, new leather and garam masala. Beautifully balanced in the mouth, with black cherry and bramble fruit flavours, tes-like tannins and juicy, citrus-tinged acidity, all of which combine in a wonderfully sweet-sour wine ,full of southern warmth and charm. Another wine that is great to drink now (written June 2016) but will evolve for another 3 to 5 years at least. A real "sweet spot" in the Treloar range, and brilliant value for money.

Medium-dark black cherry colour. This is quite similar in structure to earlier vintages, but immediately more approachable. It is initially a touch meaty/farmyardy on the nose, but this blows off to reveal an abundance of ripe bramble and black cherry fruit, with hints of curry spices, new leather and tobacco, both on the nose and palate, with grippy, tea-like tannins and cherry skin/kernel acidity leading to a long, tangy, sweet-sour finish. It isn't hugely complex, but it isn't a simple quaffer either and - despite the fact that it is already delicious - will undoubtedly age nicely for a few years.

Drink Good now, but will soften and age nicely beyond 2025
Semi-opaque, quite youthful cherry red in colour. The nose exhibits a complex array of ripe, cherry, bramble and meat/savoury aromas, with hints of iodine, leather, tobacco and a lick of polished/older oak. The palate is quite rich and extracted, yet remains fresh, with dense, dark fruit, herb and exotic spice flavours wrapped around a core of firm, quite rustic tannins and high-toned acidity, with a long, slightly dry finish. Of all the current crop of Treloar wines - and as evidenced by the fact that it is even better on day 2 - this one probably needs the most time to really come into its own. There's a lot of fruit, but the tannins and acidity need a year or so to soften and really knit together (tasted May 2018). That said, there's no reason why it cannot be enjoyed now, with a rich, meaty casserole, or something fatty, like toulouse sausages or roast duck.

Drink Really good now, but will evolve to 2025 and beyond
Although we have listed this 2015 vintage for quite a while now, it has taken this long (June 2018) to actually taste a bottle - which is testament to the trust we place in winemaker Jonathan Hesford to come up with the goods, every time. The colour is a dark semi-opaque purple, leading to a small deep red rim. And the nose is just wonderful - squished bramble, blackcurrant and black cherry aromas simply leap from the glass, with further notes of polished old leather, woodsmoke, balsam, iodine, herbs, curry spices and fine eau de vie. The palate offers masses of ripe red and black fruit flavours and a hint of soft citrus, with beautifully ripe, tea-like tannins and wonderfully mouth-watering acidity. And even at under 3 years old at the time of writing, and despite the fact that the tannins perhaps need a year or two to really integrate, youth is no bar to the sheer loveliness and approachability of this wine. Think of a top Bandol, but with more acidity, a touch softer and less forbidding at this stage - and a lot cheaper! The best and most complete Motus yet? We thinks so!

100% Carignan, with 50% coming from 75 year-old vines planted on clay-limestone terroir in Les Aspres and 50% from 40 year-old vines grown on black schiste, high up in the hills of Forca Real. Total yields are a miniscule 15 hl/ha, with just 2,000 bottles produced. Medium-dark, clear/limpid red in colour. 30% of the grapes are fermented using carbonic maceration, whilst the remaining 70% are fermented tradtionally (some of which are whole bunches, stalks and all). The resulting wine offers a wonderfully expressive mix of soused red and black fruits on the nose, with background notes of incense, polished old wood and tobacco, not to mention a definite hint of blackcurrant leaf. It is so aromatic and lovely, one could simply sit and smell it for ages! With time in the glass, further notes of brioche and curry spices (notably cumin, coriander and fenugreek) emerge, along with hints of roasted nuts and even flowers. The palate is at the same time soft and velvety, yet fresh, vibrant and full of restrained power, offering bags of spice and herb-infused raspberry and blackcurrant fruit, with plenty of grip and juicy, spiky, gently volatile acidity. It could just be the most obviously complex and most instantly loveable wine from Treloar thus far - and, of course, it is Carignan! All-in-all, a truly lovely wine, and a worthy new addition to the Treloar range.

Drink Surprisingly approachable now, but will age for 10+ years
This 2010 harks back to the first vintage (2006) in that it is approachable - preferably with food - but uncompromisingly built to last. Inky dark, with a narrow, cherry red rim, the nose offers a fabulously complex, heady mix of fruit and non-fruit aromas - bramble and black cherry with a hint of kirsch, polished old leather, soft curry spices and garrigue herbs. The sort of wine you just want to sniff all night! The palate is crammed full of dark, sweet-sour fruit, again infused with all manner of savoury/spicy/herby flavours and cracking sour cherry acidity. It is undoubtedly concentrated and extracted, and the tannins will need a good few years to soften, but it is already beginning to show its pedigree.

Carignan from 60-year-old vines and Syrah from 40-year-old vines (with yields totalling a tiny 10 hl/ha), co-fermented in whole bunches, then aged for 26 months in large-format oak barrels, 50% of which are new. The colour is an opaque deep purple, whilst the nose offers a truly intoxicating and immensely complex mix of bramble and black cherry, leather, eau de vie, cumin, coriander, coffee, damp earth and charred oak. Given its relative youth (written June 2016) one might expect a big brute of a wine, and indeed it is no shrinking violet. But it isn't brash or showy, it is multi-dimensional, crammed full of sweet and sour black cherry and spice flavours. The oak is still a little prominent, of course, and there's a healthy dose of tea-like tannins, balanced by a rasp of truly mouth-watering acidity. It isn't cheap, but it is certainly worth the money, and fully deserves its place at the very top of the Treloar hierarchy. A magnificent wine, and a true "vin de garde".

An intense nose of jasmine, mandarin and apricot with hints of fennel, star anise and white chocolate. The flavours are rich and complex, but the inherent freshness on the palate is a joy to behold. There is of course a degree of richness, but it tastes grapey in the extreme, with subtle notes of cinnamon, clove, mandarin and lemon oil. And at just 15% abv, the added grape spirit goes almost unnoticed. Instead, what you get is a delightfully refreshing, intensely fruity, sweet, but relatively light fortified wine, with mouth-watering acidity that dances over the tongue and keeps you coming back for more. Achieving balance and elegance in a fortified wine requires very skilful winemaking, and this is an outstanding wine.
