Rob’s Favourites

Pierre Moncuit's Blanc de Blancs is a personal favourite, super elegant and refined, lean and textural, and deliciously moreish. A new family tradition is to drink this on special occasions or just occasions, or just as we see fit. Secondly, the Viognier by Dominio de Punctum, which is a brightly balanced, organic fresh Viognier - delicate with great varietal characteristics. The Mâcon Davayé by Domaine de la Croix Senaillet was described (...by me, before we shipped the wines) at lunch in Gevrey-Chambertin on a Burgundy buying trip (those were the days!) as "sexy Mâcon". I was right then and now; an awesomely enjoyable and affordable white Burgundy.

This old dog has learnt a few new tricks recently, the Pomelado by Dominio de Punctum being one of them. Tops with all sorts of food, deals with spice and strong flavours with aplomb. Such an exciting area and category in general for Germany, I love Schwartztrauber's Spätburgunder, a ripe and enjoyable Pinot Noir at #drinkitmoreoften prices. Lastly, not usually my go-to region (I am sure Bordeaux won't care) is Les Pillers de Maison Blanche by Despagne-Rapin which is a stunning, modern example of what the region can produce. Charming, full of life, character and complexity from the bankable 2015 vintage.
