Rosé week continues and it's back to our roots with this one. Miraval will always be a part of Grand Cru Co as it's where we began and so it shall continue. Read on!

Château Miraval is located in the Provence village of Correns, the first 100% organic village in France. All of the crops, including grapes, are grown organically in this wild and picturesque town. Tucked away in its own private valley, the château is surrounded by ancient woodlands and olive groves. Following ancient Celtic and Roman occupation, the property served as a host to monastic practice and as a home to members of the French court in the 14th century. Since 2012, the Perrin family has been involved in wine production at the estate, and has overseen investment in the latest wine-making technology and innovation.

Chateau Miraval Cotes de Provence Rose 2017 @ £19.95 - Buy it here!
The Miraval Rosé has an attractive, soft blush colour and is beautifully bright. Delicate perfumes of raspberries, peaches and white flowers exude from the glass. The palate expresses the Miraval soils with its impressive freshness, minerality and salinity, a signature of 2014. Great balance, good length and character.

You cannot get better than that. Perfection in a bottle. Cheers!

We love treating you guys to new stuff. This brand new prosecco is so fresh and just perfect for the summer. Let us find out more!

It is with hands dyed red from the Montello soil that the Pozzobon family created Case Paolin. In the early 1970s, Emilio the founder, a farmer and son of farmers, bought the estate where his father and his grandfather had worked as sharecroppers. Abandoning silkworms, he devoted himself entirely to the vineyard and passed on this passion to his three boys: Diego, Adelino and Mirco. Twenty years later, the children grew up to be men, ready to take over the reins of the winery, to transform it and lead it into the new century. In 2013, the first grandson was born, little Emilio, and the story continue.

Fragrant yellow flower, crushed thyme, Bartlett pear and citrus aromas carry over to the dry vibrant palate together with green apple and crisp acidity. Small, continuous bubbles lend finesse.

From a great looking bottle to a fantastic wine inside it. Come and get it. Cheers!

Everyone has heard of Torres. They're one of the biggest producers in the world with some serious wines to show for it. This is one of their more simple styles but it will still be one you struggle to forget.

Founded in 1870 by Jaime Torres, Bodegas Torres (Miguel Torres SA) is a historical wine growing company located in Pacs, some 4 km from Vilafranca del Penedès, where the company has its head office. Torres is the family winery with the most extensive vineyards in the Denomination of Origin of Penedès and the largest winery in Spain.

They also run the Miguel Torres Chile winery in the Chilean Central Valley, and in the United States (California) where in 1986 Marimar Torres founded Marimar Estate. In Spain outside of the Torres family's native Penedès region, they own vineyards in DO Conca de Barberà, DO Toro, DO Jumilla, DO Ribera del Duero, DOQ Priorat and most recently in DOC Rioja - in the last three areas with new wineries or wineries under construction. Likewise, Torres is also Spain's largest producer of DO wines under its own label, exporting to more than 140 countries.

Familia Torres Pago del Cielo 'Celeste' Crianza 2015 @ £14.95 - Buy it here!
The Celeste combines a pronounced intensity with satisfying acidity and a sensuous tannic structure. It sets the bar high as an introduction to the region. Expect lots of voluptuous black fruits, silky smooth body and spicy edges. Great with any hearty meat dish.

After all of that rain maybe something like this will bring some warmth back to us all. Cheers!

The rain sadly returns but we can forgot all about that. This stuff will fill your mind with wondrous thoughts and emotions. Let us read on!

Boekenhoutskloof was established in 1776. Located in the furthest corner of the beautiful Franschhoek valley, the farm’s name means “ravine of the Boekenhout” (pronounced Book-n-Howed). Boekenhout is an indigenous Cape Beech tree greatly prized for furniture making.

In 1993 the farm and homestead was bought and restored and a new vineyard planting programme was established that now includes Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Grenache, Semillon and Viognier.

As a producer, Boekenhoutskloof is a Syrah specialist, with its premium Boekenhoutskloof range selling out on release each vintage, and The Chocolate Block – a Syrah based blend – is probably the most successful new wine offering to come out of South Africa in the modern era.

Boekenhoutskloof Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 @ £39.95 - Buy it here!
Claret like in its profile, the wine exhibits richness, texture and a youthful elegance. Wild berry, cassis with spicy notes abound. The tannins are refined, well integrated and suggest the wine has significant ageing potential.

The South Africans really know what they're doing it would seem. This is the stuff dreams are made of. Cheers!

We needed something special to finish #englishwineweek and here it is: Bride Valley Blanc de Blancs. If you've never given it a go before then read on and find out more about these amazing people.

Steven Spurrier and his wife Arabella are behind Bride Valley, located in West Dorset. Steven, while running Les Caves de la Madeleine and L'Academie du Vin in Paris in the 1980s, had soil (chalky) samples from Arabella's 80 hectare estate tested and the results came back: "very similar to Champagne". This is not surprising because the village of Kimmeridge is just 24 miles as the crow flies from Bride Valley. After two decades and three visits from Boisset's sparkling wine expert, Georges Legrand, vines were planted on the best sites in the bowl of the amphitheatre-like estate. Three hectares were planted in 2009, rising to a total of 10 hectares in 2013 when planting was completed.

Bride Valley Blanc de Blancs 2014 @ £34.95 - Buy it here!
A crystal clear Blanc de Blancs that shows the chalky soil and freshness from a light vintage, and very young vines. The palate is fruity with hints of brioche, a lean citrus edge on the palate with fine mousse and racy acidity.


Just beautiful in every way. I cant get enough of it personally! Cheers!
