Staff Choice: ‘I’ve been a fan of this wine for a long time’…


After a (ahem) dry January, our Staff Choice section returns for February, and will be updated every month with a new recommendation from our thirsty team!

You can find our Staff Choices on our website here.

February’s selection comes from our Marketing Team’s Gareth Park:

gareth-parkSaumur ‘Les Plantagenets’ 2014

I’ve been a fan of this wine for a long time, mainly due to its honesty. It’s not a showstopper or flashy in any way but instead is a good juicy red that, at less than £7 per bottle, comes in at a very reasonable price.

I particularly like the way that there isn’t anything confected or false about the wine. It tastes like product of soil, sun and man all in balance; as they should be. A lovely example of Loire cabernet franc from a cracking vintage.
