For the Tour de France Case we have teamed up with Rapha, to bring you through some beautiful vineyards up and down and round France respecting the best of each appellation.
For the 6 case we are starting in the South with a Côtes du Rhône, moving up to Roussillon and then out west to St. Èmilion. The tour continues up north to the Loire Valley then curves round East to Beaujolais and ends in the far east of the country in Alsace. Join us as we travel through beautiful landscapes and small independent growers that we collaborate with, respecting the best appellation. Our aim is to establish the connection between the sport, culture, wine, terroir and our wonderful community!
LOIRE | Domaine Derame: Muscadet Sur Lie La Morandière 2018 | 12%
A classic Loire white with fresh citrusy aromas and fine minerality, along with a pleasant richness from extensive lees ageing and a gentle spritz on the tongue. A perfect match for shellfish.
ALSACE | Riesling Cave Orschewiller 2017 | 12%
This white wine from Alsace is bursting with vibrant citrus fruit notes, kept in check by well-balanced acidity – it’s a classic aromatic Alsace Riesling! The Orschwiller-Kintzheim winery formed in 1957 as a small group and evolved to involve a cooperative of wine growers passionate about sustainable viticulture. Located in the heart of Alsace the vineyards benefit from good sun exposure and offer a diversity of soils, where the grapes can grow ideally for the development of aromas. Dry, refreshing and harmonious like a day peddling in the sun.
ROUSSILLON | Famille Dornier: Tram 2019 | Grenache Noir, Syrah | 12.5% | ORGANIC
From a sublimated territory between land, sea and wind this rosé is made with low sulphites and with a particular attention to organic farming techniques. Light and refreshing with hints of lavender and unripe red fruit. Tram is actually the name given to the wind that blows through this region, that keeps the grapes healthy, but the cycling hard!
BEAUJOLAIS | Fleurie Les Moriers 2015 | Gamay | 12.5%
A fresh and floral wine with subtle hints of spice, violet, cherries and raspberries. It was finished in oak, not to add oaky flavours but to soften the texture. Now on the mature side, it displays wonderful farmyard notes and layers of complexity.
RHONE | Roche-Audran: CDR Tradition Red 2017 | Grenache, Syrah, Carignan | 13.% | BIODYNAMIC
The winery works in accordance with cosmic rhythms more commonly known as Biodynamic principles. This is to encourage natural and environmental harmony. This is powerful and spicy, with layers of black fruit, cacao and oak, which unfold onto a richly textured palate, with more black fruit and oak spice. The wine is full-bodied, with firm tannins and a long finish.
BORDEAUX | Chateau Forge Celeste: Saint-Emilion 2018 | Merlot, Cabernet | 13% | ORGANIC & VEGAN & NATURAL
Château Forge Celeste is harvested naturally, according to processes that respect the time and diversity of nature. Without vinification sulfites, this high purity wine reveals all the benefits of its organic heritage during tasting. This quality is due to the demands of wine growers, who have been rewarded with the most stringent “Organic Wine” label.This great wine of Saint-Emilion, whose behaviour pays tribute to the region, illustrates the perfect balance between vines with 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 100% organic wine without sulfites.
