Please find below the latest Spring edition of our Latimer Delivers offer. As always, we have put together an exciting and varied list of great value wines, from our favourite producers, all of which are drinking excellently now and will be ideal for any occasion over the Easter period.
This month, the white highlight comes from the latest release from one of our most popular Estate's, Lismore and their excellent Barrel Fermented Sauvignon Blanc. Please see our latest Featured Producers page where we underline why this is a producer we are all very excited about. The 2020 vintage has a different expression to previous years with it being lighter in style. The fruit is green and fresh, while there are more Loire-esq herbaceous notes balanced by a razor sharp, saline backbone and fresh finish. This is the ultimate aperitif wine.
Spring has sprung (although it appears to have retreated for now), which means Rose season is almost upon us. A case of 2020 Domaine Tempier Bandol Rose is vital to have in your home cellar, so you don’t get caught out by the first few balmy sunny days and miss the opportunity to have a chilled glass in the garden.
On the reds front, one of our new Burgundian producers, Domaine Gerard Julien produced an excellent 2018 Bourgogne Rouge that is well worth trying. This is a rich and expressive Bourgogne rouge that confirmed our excitement about this promising producer. Immensely drinkable on its own but also a perfect partner to Spring lamb, this is not to be missed. To find out more about the excellent wines made by the young Etienne Julien, please visit their Producer Profile: Domaine Gerard Julien .
Also included are two wines which are on sale: a delicious and easy drinking 2019 Touraine Sauvignon Blanc (a classically styled, fresh, citrusy Loire white) and a 2015 Macon Bussieres Devants Rouge from Domaine de la Sarazinière (a ripe red fruited and spicy Gamay, which is ready to drink and great for parties). At over 15% off on each, these are great value for drinking over the Spring months.
