2021 Domaine de Valensac
This has been an L&S house favourite for an eternity - the Valensac Sauvignon is a real winner. Ripe gooseberry compote and fresh green pepper flavours with a slightly zingy hint of the new world about it. This is as good as many of the New Zealand wines at twice the price, but more drinkable with a restrained French elegance. L&S (Dec 2021)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
A pleasingly fluent and refreshing sauvignon blanc that tastes of gooseberries and kiwi fruit.Victoria Moore, The Daily Telegraph (Jul 2022)
Domaine de Valensac
Domaine de Valensac is a superior Languedoc-Roussillon producer making excellent Vins de Pays d'Oc, and has been in the Lafon family for several generations. Although the family are now based in Brussels, the management of the domaine is in the very capable hands of Edwige Thuille. Located merely ten kilometres from the Mediterranean, the vineyards are greatly influenced by the maritime climate and cool soils - ideal for white wines. Working with limited yields and only picking at perfect ripeness, along with modern handling and wine making techniques, all makes for wines with wonderful aromatics and texture.
For many a wine drinker, wine is largely a French endeavor. Certainly many of the world's best known and most highly regarded wines come from France. Here's a selection from across the country, drawing on the classic regions, for all round dependable delicious drinking.
