This is the only Coutelou wine that is aged in oak barrels. It has a lovely yellow/gold colour and massively complex aromas of lemon/lime oil, spiced apple, baked apricot, honey, brioche, garrigue herbs and mixed spice, all of which carry through onto the palate. Quite rich, with a gently oily/nutty quality and texture, but with a supremely balanced and really quite elegant structure, with masses of ripe stone fruit and raisiny flavours, soft spice, a touch of grape tannin, fabulous limey acidity and a finish that goes on and on. It is made to go with food, but is also good to drink on its own. Our bottle went brilliantly with mixed spiced olives and Brie as an aperitif. Undoubtedly one of the best white wines we have enjoyed this year.
Only 2 bottles left in stock.

A deep, burnished orange/gold colour. The nose is quite intriguing and really quite lovely - a veritable pot-pourri of lime, bruised apple, quince and apricot, with little notes of flowers, herbs, leather, woodsmoke and clarified butter. There's also a hint of red fruit about it that I can't quite put my finger on.... Ah, yes - blackcurrant leaf! For the purists and anti-natural brigade, there's also something inescapably "natural" about it, though I would put anyone who identified anything faulty about it firmly in their place. It simply brims with life and is a real joy to drink - essentially bone dry, but with enough richness and generosity of orangey, apricotty, herb-tinged fruit (along with a modicum of grape tannin), acidity and minerality to satisfy the senses, with a really rather cool, almost minty finish. Will it age? Possibly - I honestly have no idea - but who cares? Drink now, for maximum life-affirming vinous enjoyment!
Very limited stock - maximum 3 bottles per customer.

Pure Cinsault (hence "cinq-so") and the fact that it is essentially a natural wine - so zero added sulphur means no more than 5 g/l of (naturally occurring) S02. This may offend the more vociferous/dogmatic opponents of natural wines, for it is in some ways reminiscent of freshly-fermented grape juice, with a perceptible spritz on the palate to begin with, though it quickly settles, with air. But that gentle spritz is a definite plus, for it only serves to enhance what is a wonderfully vigourous and youthful red wine, so full of life. The nose is a riot of prickly, red berry, tree fruit, herb and forest floor aromas, all of which carry through on the palate, which is wonderfully light, airy, expressive and full of raspberry and redcurrant fruit. What little tannin has been extracted is meltingly ripe and soft, but it has more than enough bright, juicy, tangy cherry skin and soft citrus acidity to ensure plenty of grip and focus. It really is a delight - and dangerously easy to drink! And at just 11.5% abv, there's no harm done. What a lovely wine .

There is often a little CO2 pétillance with Jeff Coutelou's wines, and (at the time of tasting - October 2017) this one requires a mighty shake in the decanter, before it settles down. It is still a delight to drink, though, and is even better if you can resist drinking it all in one session. Indeed, after 24 hours, it settles into its stride, in a big way, offering plenty of dark, almost bitter-sweet fruit aromas and flavours - and still plenty of gently rustic/tannic grip - but what emerges is something softer and more approachable. There's an immense core of ripe, lush, juicy, black cherry, redcurrant and bramble fruit, with hints of spiced oranges, garrigue herbs, black pepper and wonderfully tangy cherry-kernel acidity - not to mention lots of cedary, earthy nuances lurking in the background. Ultimately, this is a wine which (literally) froths with life - you just need to get past the froth, before the genuine article emerges(!) Super stuff!

A single vineyard field blend of numerous grape varieties (10 in all), grafted onto existing rootstock in 2012. The varieties include Cinsault, Aramon Noir, Aramon Gris, Oeillade Noire, Muscaté, Clairette(s) Blanche, Grise and Musquée and at least one other (completely unknown) variety. Some might cry foul at the first hint of apple and citrus aromas and flavours in what is essentially a red wine, but remember that it is actually a blend of red, gris and white grapes, so such aromatic quirkiness and complexity is to be expected. And the sheer weight of luscious, ripe, vivacious red and black berry and cherry fruits will surely win anyone over. It smells like summer in a basket, and tastes like it too, with a sprinkling of herbs and spices, fine, ripe tannins and simply bucket-loads of tangy, orange and cherry-tinged acidity. This really is an almost impossibly delicious young wine, which is *perfect* to drink now, though there's no great rush.

Mas Coutelou Flambadou 2016 Vin de France

Food Red and white meats, game, risotto

This Carignan, with its deep, dark, virtually opaque blood/purple colour would ordinarily suggest a young, tannic brute of a wine. But not a bit of it - for this may be the fruitiest, juiciest, most approachable example or its kind I have ever tasted. Aromas of bramble, blackcurrant and desiccated orange peel leap from the glass, with subtle notes of garrigue herbs, leather and polished old wood. And whilst there is a healthy dose of rich, ripe, mouth-coating tannin, the fruit is so dense and luscious on the palate that you hardly notice. And with oodles of mouth-watering, orange and red cherry-tinged acidity to hold it all together, and a long, sweet-sour, tangy finish, it really does feel like the complete package. Jeff Coutelou's wines can certainly age nicely for several years, and there is no reason to suggest that this will be any different, for it definitely has the structure. But then again, why wait, when it is this good?! And for anyone who wonders why I am always banging-on about proper, old vine Languedoc Carignan, this is it. It's the real deal. Trust me!

As good
Drink 2018-2023
Semi-opaque, deep purple colour, with a narrow rim. The nose displays myriad fresh and dried red and black fruit aromas, with notes of leather, curry spices and roasted red meat, with a generous sng of garrigue herbs. It really is immensely complex and perfumed - there's even a hint of florality too. Lively on entry, with a faint CO2 prickle, which disperses quickly to reveal an immense core of juicy, sweet autumn black and red fruits and even a hint of white tree fruit (apricot, perhaps?) with refreshing cherry-skin acidity, countering the ripe, tea-like tannins. It really is a wonderfully voluptuous, sweet-sour wine, with more charm and elegance than you can shake a stick at. An utterly brilliant wine, which is perfect to drink now, or to age and evolve for a few years.

A quirky "solera" blend of Syrah, Carignan and Cinsault from the 2001, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 vintages. On opening, it smells so fresh and full of fruit, yet a day or even 2 days in the decanter renders it even fresher, more perfumed and more alluring. Complex notes of old leather, curry spices, forest floor and fine eau de vie are married to fresh bramble and cherry aromas and flavours, and perhaps a touch of licorice. The tannins are nicely chewy and robust and the acidity is - surprise, surprise - mouth-watering and tangy. The overall effect is a full-bodied, concentrated, yet really elegant wine, which will age nicely for a good few years, although again, there is no need whatsoever to wait. A brilliantly quirky and really delicious wine.
