What is this week’s cellar treasure ? How about the 2007 Prieure Savigny blanc from Yvonne, Jean-Michel and Stephen Maurice ? Chiselled, fresh with a basket of white fruits was the flavour profile…

Daniela Sandri makes a delicious hand stuffed Raviolo which is a perninnial favourite in the Sandri household. She says’s it pairs beautifully with their etheral Langhe Nebbiolo.

I had the pleasure of an Instagram Live interview with none other than the distinguished Gina Lyons, tasting and evaluting the Champagne House of Marie Copinet Champagne…


Lucie, Stephen, Yvonne and Jean-Michel have brought in the bounty from harvest. The lieut-dit, ‘Narbatons‘ their sliver of ‘1er Cru Haut Jarrons‘ are in the background of the image.

Passed from Giovanni Sandri to Elio Sandri. These ancient fermentation tanks were cut into the hillside in Monforte decades ago. Temperature control through the cooling of mother earth.

Need an idea for a new dish? Marie-Lise Dorthe makes a scrumptious Carrot and Ginger soup, which pairs beautifully with her Domaine de Couron Marselan !
