Sometimes, in the wine world, everything just comes together. Sunshine, rainfall, warmth and cool constellate and provide the perfect environment for growing and ripening grapes. 2010 was one of those years.

Long recognised as a stunning vintage in Bordeaux, 2010 also bestowed her gifts on the South of France. We don't currently carry any Bordeaux wines, but have some truly superb examples of 2010's best from the Rhône, Languedoc and Roussillon.

All display wonderful ripeness and bright fruit, tempered by freshness, precision and pleasing acidity (in contrast to the 2009 vintage where excessive heat caused some overripe 'jamminess') and are drinking beautifully but still have plenty of mileage in them, should you be considering laying some down.
