CUBAGNAC, ARDECHE

LAURENT FELL, MAS DE L’ESCARIDA

Laurent Fell has some of the highest vines in the Ardeche, on south facing slopes at 500m altitude on the edge of the wild and mountainous Cevennes forest. The soil is sandstone formed in the Triassic period coming from the degradation of granite that was recompressed by pressure when the sea settled in this time. There are large quartz pebbles, shale and flint from the glacial scree. This combined with the elevation of the vineyards brings freshness and minerality to the wines. He’s on his own up there, which is beneficial as there is no risk of pollutants from other vineyards and plenty of biodiversity. A beautiful antique press which is situated above the tanks so all the juice flows by gravity.. Bottled with zero additions, these are wines of immense drinkability, stability & value.

SOPLE E JOIOS 2022 £13

100% Gamay from his oldest vines. A similar vinification to the Virar Rouge, but the wine tends to have more depth and concentration. 2022 is a particularly stunning vintage and quite remarkable value.

Syrah & Chatus, a native varietal that is particularly rare and only found in Mountainous vineyards around here and in the Savoie. Laurent destems the fruit and gives it around 7 days maceration before ageing in tank. The Syrah brings lovely dark fruit and the Chats a taut minerality. Delicious! 

SOTA MON SOLEU 2022 £13

100% Merlot from 50+ year old vines. Laurent destems the fruit and gives it around 7 days of maceration before ageing in tank. Though 2022 was warm, this managed too have be remarkably fresh, while still brimming with ripe dark fruit. 

Valvignères, Ardeche

MAUD ADNOT

On her first vintage, Maud Adnot is making some of the most pure and delicious wines in the region. Working full time for other vigneron's in their vineyards, she has started her own project as purely negociant, but is looking for her own parcels. Fortunately she has friends with great grapes and this can be easily tasted in her wines, which are delicate, direct, vibrant and wonderfully fresh. All wines are produced without additions. 

O TRICOTEE 2021 £16

This is 75% Syrah, 25% Viognier. Syrah from vines planted on rolled pebbles and silt from the banks of the Rhône in Saint Marcel d’Ardèche. Viognier from clay-limestone, marls in Valvignères.

The grapes were co-fermented for 6 days with a regular draining of the juice and this cuvee comes from the the assembly of the start of the press raised in a fiberglass tank and the end of the press raised in 500l old oak barrels.It's a lovely expression of Syrah, the concentrated dark fruit balanced by a hint of peachy Viognier and an almost weightless texture.
