Summer Wine Offers 2013
NV Champagne René Beaudouin
Our house Champagne goes from strength to strength. Its a “Blanc de Blanc” which combines elegance and freshness with a little age and biscuit quality and none of the green unbalanced acidity that spoils many lesser wines.
£250.00 per case of 12 including VAT
2009 Sauvignon Blanc, Levin
This wine comes from organic vineyards in the Loire valley owned by David Levin and his wife Lynne. Although the appellation is humble, (Vin du Pays du Val de Loire), ensuring a price generally lower than Sancerre or Pouilly Fumé, the wine has terrific backbone. It has some new world inspiration but lacks the overt grassy notes of much New Zealand Sauvignon, offering a more gentle and restrained sauvignon nose. Think of it as a classy Pouilly Fumé with depth, structure and minerality.
£130.00 per case of 12 including VAT
2012 Aubun Rosé, Domaine de Lansac, V de P des Alpilles
This pale onion skin coloured Rosé from Provence is made with the unheard of grape variety ‘Aubun’ which somehow survived phylloxera. The wine has a charming peachy aroma and excellent structure and balance.
£57.00 per case of 6 including VAT

2011 Pinot Noir, Puy de Dome, Cave St Vernay
Inexpensive Pinot Noir is hard to find and we like this one for its supple , clean and fruit driven style. In addition to typical Pinot red fruit character it has a leafy quality and a touch of spice. Ideal for summer drinking.
£55.00 per case of 6 bottles including VAT
2004 Chateau Cazebonne Graves
We are always looking for claret which has the gentleness of age together with enough spice to make it interesting. This Graves has some stoney mineral qualities wrapped in velvety fruit. House Claret chez Hart!

A pair of nifty Italians from the Organic Ciu Ciu Estate in the Marche
