The ’02 Cuvée Nicolas François is made from solely Grand Cru fruit (60% Pinot Noir & 40% Chardonnay) and is one of the most beautiful Champagnes that I and many critics have tasted for many years. Some are comparing the ’02 to the great and legendary 1964, which is an extraordinary tribute. A Champagne that can be easily described as hauntingly beautiful as the balance between power and endless complexity is something very rare. The best wine from Billecart’s portfolio and will reward a further 10-15 years of cellaring (if you can resist).
Bright garnet color with purple trim. A young Crianza, where red berries aromas remain over the oaky and balsamic notes from its ageing in American oak. On the palate this wine is a very pleasant, round and balanced with notes of sweetness, pastry and a licorice aftertaste.
The L’Hydropathe is the top of the range rosé from Domaine Sainte Lucie and is a standout among Provence Rosé’s. Red berries, pomegranate, dried flowers, herbs are just some of the many nuances that emerge from the glass in this texturally finessed, beguiling and totally beautiful wine.
The Domaine Sainte Lucie Made in Provence (MIP) Premium 2015 rosé wine is delicately pale pink in colour and packed full of berry fruit on the nose. Outstanding on all accounts, and just what you're looking for when you need a dry rosé for a hot summer...
The deep ruby/purple hue is accompanied by aromas of blackberries, cherries, road tar and earth. Medium-bodied with silky tannins as well as an abundance of luscious fruit and all the better for being served ‘en magnum’.
A perfect introduction to the delights and complexity of real white Burgundy, this is mainly Côte d'Or fruit, together with some from the Maconnais. Fresh with lovely weight, delicate creaminess and judicious oak, making this a beautifully balanced dry white wine.

If you are a fan of Prosecco and have not yet had the opportunity of enjoying it 'En Magnum' then here is your chance! Stonkingly delicious and super sexy in the larger format.
Very pure, mineral, fresh fruit and floral aromas on the nose, which are so invitingly subtle. The palate is pure, complex with finesse and the perfect expression of minerality.
The 2005 Gran Reserva is produced with over 60-year-old Tempranillo grapes fermented in cement vats. The wine rested in bottle for a minimum of three years before being released. Only 2,700 magnums (and a bunch of bigger bottles) were produced. It is open and expressive, very spicy, with developed notes of blond tobacco, leather and very fresh fruit (more red than black). It has juicy fruit and a very round texture, a serious wine that should develop slowly.
