VERMENTINO

2011 Domaine les Yeuses

Vermentino from the French Mediterranean coast with citrus and dusty minerals, in this vintage with extra ripeness and rounded feel. Very sophisticated wine at its price level, and better by miles than anything we have found in Italy (where this grape originates) at up to twice the price.

Currently out of stock in our warehouse, but don't worry!

Vermentino, or Rolle, is one of those grapes that should be more widely planted, partly because it retains acidity and freshness in warm climates, but also because it has plenty of flavour. This is typical of the variety, and at a very appealing price: orange peel and citrus zest with an undertone of Mediterranean herbs and a tangy aftertaste. Perfect for the last few days of summer. Wine of the Week.

London wine merchant Patrick Sandeman, who died two weeks ago, was one of the best in the business, sharing with his partner Charles Lea a rare talent for unearthing the unusual and the delicious in their handful of smart shops. This perky and pithy white typifies their approach: full of flavour and character, but cracking value, too. Salut, Patrick – you will be missed. 7th October 2012.

If you thought independent wine merchants didn't do value, then here's a wine to challenge your preconceptions. It's an immactulately clean, crisp, perky and pithy white, with a lip-smacking lime-skin tang and a rounded mouthfeel.

Fragrant with lemon and apricot, slightly grainy, making it quite firm and dense even with all that aromatic freshness. Nice mineral touch too. GV

Think herbs, hedgerows and citrus. If you like proper wine rather than one so mass-produced it’s all smoothed off at the edges, you’ll struggle to find a better house white at the price.
