  1. Le Quai à Raisins Embrums

    A brand new white from Robin & Imogen. 100% organic Macabeu having had 12 months in oak.

    Please note this wine does say "contains sulphites" on the label as it is just over the 10ppm total sulphites limit. However it's total sulphites are extremely low and it will be fine even if you have a sulphite allergy. Normally we wouldn't list it on this page, just on our organic page, but we have put it here so fans of Robins wines can find it.

    We only have 36 bottles in total.

  2. Le Quai à Raisins Meridional

    A new wine from a new venture! Robin Althof from Costes Cirgues and his wife Imogen are making small batches of their own excellent wines from different parcels of grapes from friends' vineyards. Obviously they are organically farmed. 

    Pale gold with green highlights. Some light legs. Initial citrus flavours with a good mouthfeel. Soft, round and balanced with a clean, crisp finish. It's very difficult to get crisp acidity in a sulphite free white so Robin has added a tiny amount of sulphites at bottling. This is perhaps the closest in style to mainstream whites I've tasted.

    This wine contains a total of 19 mg/l total sulphites - technically too high to be classed as "sulphite free" for which the limit is no more than 10 mg/l. But this is extremely low and the wine is still suitable for people with a sulphite allergy. Hence we have put it on our sulphite free wines page (as well as our organic page) so our regular customers who buy Robin's other wines and wines from his family's brand Costes Cirgues, are aware of it's existence.

    We have an extremely limited stock.

  5. Domaine Mayrac Esprit Nature Chenin Blanc sulphite free wine

    Domaine Mayrac have introduced two new sulphite free wines to their Esprit Nature range - this Chenin Blanc and also a Rose.

    This Esprit Nature Chenin is a step up in quality from their No SO2 Chenin, being a little fuller and richer in flavour with a longer finish. It's grown at altitude giving the wine a lovely freshness.

    Please note it is bottled unfiltered so will have some natural sediment, making the wine a little darker in colour. This is perfectly normal and doesn't affect the flavour of the wine.

  6. Domaine D'Anglas Petit Roy Blanc Organic sulphite free wine

    D'Anglas Petit Roy Blanc is a brand new sulphite free white wine from Roger and Carole. It comes from a one hectare vineyard of Roussane and Marsanne producing under 2,500 bottles, so we were restricted on how much we could have.

    No wood used, aged in stainless steel tanks for three months. It underwent a light filtering.

    Fresh with some citrus on the palate. Good body too, soft with gentle acidity and a dry finish.

    Overall a very good sulphite free white, very easy to drink!

    Apologies for the photo shopped image!

  8. Domaine Mayrac Organic Savoir Etre Blanc

    This wine has been renamed and used to be their Milesime Blanc.

    A delicious blend of Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc (and Mauzac) aged in oak. Light in colour with a fresh nose. Citrus fruits on the palate, yet full and creamy in the mouth with noticeable oak. Plenty of body but very clean and fresh on the finish.

    They make tiny amounts of this wine - literally a couple of thousand bottles - and it has gathered quite a following hence the 2015 sold out before we could even get any. This 2017 has been aged it in oak.

    Very limited stock.

  10. Domaine Viret La Coudee D'Or sulphite free wine

    A natural gourmet wine, big and rich. If you like something crisp and pale this isn't for you. This wine contains a slight sediment and has a vaguely pink colour from the skin of one of the grapes. Pair it with good French cheese and charcuterie and enjoy leisurely. Please don't order this wine if you don't like this style as it is exceptionally limited.

    Free sulphur: <5mg/l
