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".

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.

Drink Lovely now, but will age nicely to 2022 and beyond
A dense but translucent dark cherry colour, this offers bright bramble and black cherry aromas, with subtle notes of roasted meat, damp earth, curry spices and wood smoke. The colour might suggest a rather deep, tannic wine, but it really is deliciously drinkable and approachable. The tannins are nicely robust and chewy (for now) but the combination of ripe, juicy fruit and mouth-watering acidity provide an excellent foil - so much so that trying not to drink it all at this early stage may be an exercise in futility. It really is a lovely wine, with a good deal of complexity, not to mention a lengthy finish. Of course, it certainly has the structure to age for a few years...... but I'm almost tempted to say why wait?

Drink Really good now, but will evolve to 2023 and beyond
Aged for 12 months in American oak barriques (20% new). A medium-dark purple core, semi-opaque, leading to a small deep red rim. The nose is just wonderful - bramble and black cherry, meat, polished old leather, woodsmoke, iodine, herbs and curry spices all get a look-in - a really evocative and complex perfume, redolent of well-used church pew or a favourite old wardrobe. The palate offers ripe red and black fruits and a hint of soft citrus, with beautifully ripe, gently grippy tannins and a lick of mouth-watering acidity. And even at under 3 years old (written June 2016) youth is no bar to the sheer loveliness and approachability of this wine. Think of a top Bandol, but a touch softer and less forbidding at this stage - and a lot cheaper! Another supremely classy wine.
Only 1 bottle left.

Drink Surprisingly approachable now, but will age for 10+ years
Medium/dense bright purple colour with a narrow cherry-red rim. The nose exhibits complex aromas of black cherries and bramble, with beautifully integrated notes of curry spices, cloves, cedar/cigar box and citrus. The palate is concentrated, yet fresh and giving, with juicy red and black fruit, spice and garrigue herb flavours. The tannins are grippy but very fine and already nicely integrated, whilst the tangy acidity keeps it all nicely fresh. This is the third vintage of Tahi, and whilst the 2006 demands more time and the 2007 is a little softer and more forward, this one really seems to have hit its stride already. Then again, it almost seems a shame to drink it so young. The back label says "to enjoy from 2010 to 2020" and I wouldn't disagree, because it is a wine which is approachable enough to enjoy in its youth, whilst also having the structure to age and evolve for another 10 years. But you pays your money and you takes your choice - and either way, it is an absolute cracker. Yet another benchmark Roussillon wine, which leaves me running short of superlatives!

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.

Drink Good now, with air, but will age for another 15-20 years
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 buches, 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.
