HH&C Wines in the Press

2011 Cornas, Domaine Alain Verset

2011 Cornas, Domaine Alain Verset

…This Alain Verset Cornas hits all the right notes at first whiff… …The wine is pressed using an old-fashioned basket press, which helps to preserve a sense of texture and place, and it’s superb.…
Victoria Moore on our 2011 Cornas,
The Telegraph, 18th August '17

2015 Le Temps Est Venu, Côtes du Rhone, Domaine Stéphane & Michel Ogier

2015 Le Temps Est Venu, Côtes du Rhone, Domaine Stéphane & Michel Ogier

Mostly grenache, with a dollop of syrah, and unoaked, this beguiling red bursts with bold, beautiful, creamy cassis, bramble and violet flavours.
Jane MacQuitty on our Le Temps Est Venu,
The Times, 1st July '17

2015 Syrah, Domaine Gayda, Pays d`Oc

2015 Syrah, Domaine Gayda, Pays d`Oc

…made in a cool, contemporary style with racy, pure, black cherry fruit and the trademark peppery spice that Syrah…

2011 Cornas, Domaine Alain Verset

2011 Cornas, Domaine Alain Verset

Ah, there it is on the nose, the tantalising, shiver-inducing fragrance of blood, iron, spice, violets and earth of a real Rhône syrah. Verset used to work in a factory and make wine as a hobby; now in his 60s, this tiny set-up is what he does full-time. Great wine.
Victoria Moore on our Cornas, The Telegraph, 24th June '17

2016 Côte de Brouilly, Domaine Gilbert Chetaille

2016 Côte de Brouilly, Domaine Gilbert Chetaille

2016 is a good year for Beaujolais: the wines combine ripeness and freshness. This one has edge and a graphite scent with a lovely burst of summer berries. Drink slightly chilled with tuna steak.
Victoria Moore on our Côte de Brouilly, The Telegraph, 24th June '17

2016 Viognier, Domaine Gayda, Pays d`Oc

2016 Viognier, Domaine Gayda, Pays d`Oc

Viognier can be heavy and drowsily luxuriant with exotic peach and honeysuckle scent. This is a lighter incarnation, from one of the Languedoc’s flagship estates. Refreshing and uplifting. Love it.
Victoria Moore on our Viognier, Domaine Gayda, The Telegraph, 24th June '17

2015 Syrah, Domaine Gayda, Pays d`Oc

2015 Syrah, Domaine Gayda, Pays d`Oc

2015 Morgon Vieilles Vignes Cuvée des Délys, Raymond Bouland

2015 Morgon Vieilles Vignes Cuvée des Délys, Raymond Bouland

Bright redberry fruit with a hint of violets spring from the glass. The palate delivers depth with firm tannins and is balanced by red and black fruit concentration and savoury notes on the finish. Still shy, it will shine even more in years to come.
Christelle Guibert on our 2015 Morgon, Decanter Magazine, May '17

2015 Château La Rocaille, Graves Rouge

2015 Château La Rocaille, Graves Rouge

…boasting some mightily accurate Graves structure and poise, this is a full, spicy, vibrant wine with genuinely refreshing tannins and classic 2015 swagger…
Matthew Jukes on our Ch La Rocaille, www.matthewjukes.com, 7th Apr '17

2015 Côte de Brouilly, Domaine Gilbert Chetaille

2015 Côte de Brouilly, Domaine Gilbert Chetaille

…the wine which combined all of these admirable traits in one bottle was my featured Côte de Brouilly which was joyous and yet bracingly authentic in the same breath…
Matthew Jukes on our Côte de Brouilly, MoneyWeek, 18th Nov '16

2015 Sangiovese di Puglia, Vetriano IGT

Sangiovese is of course the main chianti grape but this modern-styled sangiovese from Italy’s heel has none of chianti’s dustiness. It’s bright and juicy, and tastes of ripe cherries. It’s soft enough to use as a party wine but refreshing too, with a real bounce in its step.

2014 Château Les Reuilles, Bordeaux Rouge

A wine from a family-owned château in the south east of the Bordeaux region that makes you smile the moment you stick your nose in the glass. “VG Bordeaux nose” was my first note. There’s a lovely elderberry scent, and the 15 per cent wallop of cabernet franc brings a glorious perfume and uplift.

2015 Le Mas, Domaine Clavel, Coteaux du Languedoc

A gorgeously atmospheric southern French blend of carignan, grenache and syrah that smells of dried herbs sun-baked earth, dried figs and damsons. There’s no oak here – ageing is in concrete. A wine to cosy up with.
Victoria Moore on our Sangiovese di Puglia,
Ch les Reuilles and Le Mas, The Telegraph, 25th Nov '16

2015 Beaujolais Vieilles Vignes, Domaine Boulon

2015 Beaujolais Vieilles Vignes, Domaine Boulon

2015 has done marvelous things in Beaujolais, the usually rather light and unserious Gamay grape is now weighty and rich. This example has ripe dark fruit and a mineral earthy edge. Delicious!
Henry Jeffreys on our Beaujolais Vieilles Vignes, The Spectator, 7th Oct '16

Gatinois Brut Tradition, Grand Cru Aÿ

Gatinois Brut Tradition, Grand Cru Aÿ

Full yellow in colour, this pinot noir-dominated champagne is aromatic with notes of apples and herbs, as well as nuts and toast. It’s a deliciously richer style.
Jamie Goode on our Gatinois Brut Tradition, Grand Cru Aÿ, The Express, 20th Sept '15

2013 Campriano Chianti Colli Senesi

2013 Campriano Chianti Colli Senesi

I have followed Campriano for a few vintages and have always been delighted with its quality and accuracy. In 2013 the flavour is bold, juicy and vibrant making it the finest release I have ever tasted. There are magnums available, too (£24.40) which look absolutely incredible!
Matthew Jukes on our 2013 Campriano Chianti, The Daily Mail, 19th Sept '15

2014 Chablis, Domaine Daniel Dampt

2014 Chablis, Domaine Daniel Dampt

Lively and fresh with pure citrus fruit and moreish hints of pear richness, this is a great chablis. It’s a delicious, food-friendly wine that’s well worth splashing the cash on.
Jamie Goode on our 2014 Chablis, Dme Daniel Dampt, The Express, 30th Aug '15

2014 Quincy Villalin, Domaine Jacques Rouzé

2014 Quincy Villalin, Domaine Jacques Rouzé

…elegant and fine-boned, as quincy should be, a pencil drawing of a wine, which smells of blackcurrant leaves and tastes of whitecurrants and cold gooseberries.
Victoria Moore on our Quincy, The Telegraph, 22nd Aug '15

2013 Nero d`Avola Terre Siciliane, Centonze

2013 Nero d`Avola Terre Siciliane, Centonze

The ideal barbecue red – fresh and vibrant, bursting with smoky, black-cherry flavours, medium-bodied, but enough depth of flavour to match most charcoal-grilled meats; also wonderful with grilled vegetables, firm white fish or halloumi cheese.
Terry Kirby on our Nero d'Avola, The Independent, 2nd Aug 2015
A nero d'avola from the west coast of Sicily, which is more usually marsala territory, this is a very appealing red that carries some of the grape's more fresh and aromatic qualities. Its smell is reminiscent of juicy red plums and peonies, and little threads of texture as you sip make it feel more autumnal. Bring on a plate of pasta.
Victoria Moore on our Nero d'Avola, The Daily Telegraph, 18th Oct 2014

2013 Rully Montagne La Folie, Claudie Jobard

2013 Rully Montagne La Folie, Claudie Jobard

Tucked away at the northern end of the area, Claudie Jobard is one of the leading growers in Rully. Vinified and aged in oak barrels for a year, what you get from this lively, lemon and fresh-hay-scented rully is oodles of light, lingeringly nutty fruit. Great as an aperitif, or with lighter white-meat and fish dishes.
Jane MacQuitty on our Rully, The Times, 11th July '15

2014 Sancerre Rosé, Terre de Maimbray, Pascal & Nicolas Reverdy

2014 Sancerre Rosé, Terre de Maimbray, Pascal & Nicolas Reverdy

Sancerre rosé is often not worth its price tag, but this Reverdy family’s rare vintage (the last they made was 2006) is worth the price. From its ballet-slipper colour, to its delicate, plum and gariguette-strawberry taste, this rosé is a total charmer, so grab it.
Jane MacQuitty on our Sancerre Rosé, The Times, 11th July '15

2014 Viognier, Domaine Gayda, Vin de Pays d`Oc

When it’s right, viognier makes fragrant wine reminiscent of dusk in a summer garden in Provence. … unoaked – very much on the lighter, more citrusy side of viognier, but with a tender, almond-blossom-like scent. Lovely.

Domaine Vallet 'Muletiers’ St Joseph 2012

Wonderful syrah from the northern Rhône: this doesn’t need keeping as it’s joyful and accessible right now. Smells thick and attractive, of green peppercorns and white pepper – and leather, too.
Victoria Moore on our Viognier and Saint-Joseph, The Telegraph, 27th June '15

2013 Morgon Vieilles Vignes, Raymond Bouland

2013 Morgon Vieilles Vignes, Raymond Bouland

Rated ‘Outstanding’, with a Decanter average score of 18.75/20 points:
“Triumphantly bright, fresh, nuanced and very capable of a few years’ ageing. For just £13, this is mind-bogglingly brilliant” – Rob MacCulloch MW
Decanter Panel Tasting on our 2013 Morgon Vieilles Vignes, August 2015

2010 Château Vimont, Graves Rouge

2010 Château Vimont, Graves Rouge

I am always on the lookout for great value red Bordeaux and this new find is a beauty. From the awesome 2010 vintage this is a juicy, medium-bodied fellow with subtle spice and a great finish.
Matthew Jukes on our 2010 Château Vimont, Daily Mail 6th June 2015

2014 Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico, Pontemagno

2014 Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico, Pontemagno

An Italian white made from verdicchio. Has a slight astringency and herbaceous quality that gives it texture, like a pointillist picture, pinching a bit on your tongue. Classy taste, classy label, and works nicely at the table as well as at a reception.
Victoria Moore on our Verdicchio Classico, The Daily Telegraph, 5th June 2015

2012 Rosso di Montalcino, Il Colle

2012 Rosso di Montalcino, Il Colle

Clean, fresh and balanced with pure red cherry and raspberry jam aromas and flavours complemented by cinnamon, flowers and sweet spices. Lovely stuff delivered in the typically warmer 2012 style. Drink 2015-2020
Decanter magazine on our 2012 Rosso di Montalcino

2013 Mâcon-Chaintré, Domaine Dominique Cornin

2013 Mâcon-Chaintré, Domaine Dominique Cornin

This is an extremely posh version of the Chardonnay grape from a tip top Burgundy producer. With elegance and stunning length this is a wine that will shock you with its breeding, finesse and very fair price point.
Matthew Jukes on our 2013 Mâcon-Chaintré, Daily Mail, Feb '15

2012/2013 Mas Bres Pinot Noir, Cévennes

2012 Mas Bres Pinot Noir, Cévennes

…it is even brighter and more cherry-scented than it predecessor. This is one of France’s finest inexpensive Pinot Noirs – stock up for the summer, too because this is a great al fresco rouge.
Matthew Jukes on our 2013 Mas Bres Pinot Noir, Daily Mail, Feb '15
…This wine though certainly impresses with a stunning, vibrant, black cherry nose and a sleek, sultry palate – it’s a great price, too. I may have to take my blinkers off!
Matthew Jukes on our 2012 Mas Bres Pinot Noir, Daily Mail, Aug '14

Champagne Pierre Vaudon Brut Premier Cru

Champagne Pierre Vaudon Brut Premier Cru

This is a wine which never fails to blow me away. Pierre Vaudon is categorically one of Champagnes greatest value houses of all and the calibre of fruit used in this wine puts all of the big names to shame. With 75% Grand Cru Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay from the stellar Côte des Blancs sub-region this wine should be £75 and not sub-£25 by the case. I have tasted it with thousands of people over the last decade or so and every single person falls in love with Vaudon in one sip.
Matthew Jukes on our Champagne Pierre Vaudon, Daily Mail 10th Dec 2014

2013 Schiava San Pietro,
Viticoltori Alto Adige

2013 Schiava San Pietro, Viticoltori Alto Adige

[This wine] is from Italy's northernmost area. Made with the Schiava grape – called Trollinger over the border in Germany – it is light and floral, with masses of brightly refreshing, red-berry fruit flavours and a spicy finish. Different and beguiling. Serve with pasta with cream sauces, veal escalope or roast chicken.
Terry Kirby on our Schiava San Pietro, The Independent 30th Nov 2014

2013 Sangiovese di Puglia, Vetriano IGT

2013 Sangiovese di Puglia, Vetriano IGT

A real find of a weekday wine for those who enjoy the cherry-like twang and sweet-sour twist of Italian reds. A very modern - juicy, light and bright rather than leathery and filled with the smell of incense and dust - rendition of the Sangiovese, the Chianti grape. Perfect for pasta with passata or a tuna steak.
Victoria Moore on our Sangiovese di Puglia, The Telegraph 8th Nov 2014

2010 Bourgueil Prestige, Domaine de la Lande

2010 Bourgueil Prestige, Domaine de la Lande

…The stock has just arrived in the country along with the forward-drinking 2012 Les Graviers cuvée (£11.80) which looks dead sexy right now. Your opportunity is clear – this is one of the finest value, long-lived, classic red wines of the world. Shove some in storage and visit it down the line. I have and I look forward to drinking it on my 70th!
Matthew Jukes on our 2010 Bourgueil Prestige, MoneyWeek 24th October 2014

2012 Sangiovese di Puglia, Vetriano IGT

2012 Sangiovese di Puglia, Vetriano IGT

An astonishingly good budget sangiovese. This is cherry-like and bright - snap it up.
Victoria Moore on our Sangiovese di Puglia, Olive Magazine Nov 2014
Puglia in southern Italy is a great source of excellent reds, although this is lighter than most. Bright, medium-bodied and packed with lip-smacking juicy cherry flavours, this can take a little chilling on a warm day. Drink with mezze or pasta all'arrabbiata. £6.50.
Terry Kirby on our Sangiovese di Puglia, The Independent, 13th July 2014

2013 Nero d`Avola Terre Siciliane, Centonze

2013 Nero d`Avola Terre Siciliane, Centonze

A nero d'avola from the west coast of Sicily, which is more usually marsala territory, this is a very appealing red that carries some of the grape's more fresh and aromatic qualities. Its smell is reminiscent of juicy red plums and peonies, and little threads of texture as you sip make it feel more autumnal. Bring on a plate of pasta.
Victoria Moore on our Nero d'Avola, The Daily Telegraph, 18th Oct 2014

2013 Frappato Terre Siciliane, Centonze

2013 Frappato Terre Siciliane, Centonze

Hailing from Sicily, frappato is a grape variety you may not have encountered before. Sweet, floral aromas of red cherries and rose petals dominate this beautifully fresh, light-bodied red. It’s quite pricey but once tried, you’ll be back for more.
Jamie Goode on our 2013 Frappato Terre Siciliane, Centonze, Express, 12th Oct 2014

Kumeu Village Chardonnay 2011 & Campriano Chianti Colli Senesi 2012

Kumeu Village Chardonnay 2011 & Campriano Chianti Colli Senesi 2012

[HH&C] is best known for its classic French wines…, but it covers most countries in an expertly picked selection…. To make the point, I’ve chosen a white from a top New Zealand producer, the impressively Burgundian Kumeu Village Chardonnay 2011 and a textbook Italian, Campriano Chianti Colli Senesi 2012.
Joanna Simon on our 2012 Campriano Chianti Colli Senesi and 2011 Kumeu River Village Chardonnay, House & Garden Magazine, Oct 2014

2012 Bourgogne Pinot Noir Signature, Domaine Champy

2012 Bourgogne Pinot Noir Signature, Domaine Champy

Champy, a négociant house founded in 1720, is not that well known, but this structured, fruity Bourgogne shows the quality of which it is capable. Champy went through a shake-up in 2013, but Dimitri Bazas stays on as winemaker, so quality should be maintained. 17 (90) Drink 2014-2018
Stephen Brook on our Champy Pinot Noir Signature, Decanter Magazine, Sept 2014

2012 Rosso di Montalcino, Il Colle

2012 Rosso di Montalcino, Il Colle

This gorgeous example of the cheaper cousin to Tuscany's fêted Brunello di Montalcino demonstrates a perfect balance between elegance and power: light-to-medium bodied, but bursting with crunchy, fresh-berry fruit flavours and a hint of spice. Drink with pork loin or veal chop.
Terry Kirby on our 2012 Rosso di Montalcino, Il Colle, The Independent, 31st August 2014

2013 Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico, Pontemagno

2013 Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico, Pontemagno

White. Crisp. Precise. Herbaceous. Tidy as topiary. The grape is verdicchio and the wine is from the Marche on the Adriatic coast of central Italy. Unlike many cheaper whites this smells of green growing herbs, not sherbet pips. It’s tricky to find good house whites: I’m thrilled with this discovery. Three ticks on my two-tick scale.
Victoria Moore on our Verdicchio Classico, The Daily Telegraph, 23rd August 2014

2013 Racine Picpoul de Pinet, Languedoc

2013 Racine Picpoul de Pinet, Languedoc

Mostly grown on limestone near the Mediterranean coast between Agde and Sete, Picpoul is beguiling, opening with zesty pear-drop flavours, followed by a salty, smokey tanginess that hits the mid-palate. Goes with any white fish or shellfish – it comes from a big oyster farming area, so they're a natural accompaniment. £9.30
Terry Kirby on our Racine Picpoul de Pinet, The Independent

2013 Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico, Pontemagno

2013 Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico, Pontemagno

… terrific wine at a terrific price…'lip-smacking' …thanks to the crisp lemony taste. Good with or without food.
Julia Harding MW on our Verdicchio Classico, www.jancisrobinson.com

2013 Domaine Pique Roque Rosé, Côtes de Provence

2013 Domaine Pique Roque Rosé, Côtes de Provence

Pale, dry and interesting, this squeaky-clean, stainless-steel, cold-fermented Côtes de Provence pink is made from the usual south of France hotchpotch of mostly syrah and grenache grapes, plus a good slosh each of cabernet sauvignon and cinsault. It's the ideal, delicious, verdant, herby, standby, summer garden party pink.
Jane MacQuitty on our Pique Roque Rosé,
The Times, 31st May 2014

2013 Chemin des Pelerins Rosé, Saint-Mont

2013 Chemin des Pelerins Rosé, Saint-Mont

This cracking rosé, made from tannat, fer servadou, with a dollop of cabernet sauvignon bristles with bold, ripe yet juicy red-fruit flavours and makes the perfect barbecue bottle.
Jane MacQuitty on our Chemin des Pelerins Rosé,
The Times, 31st May 2014
