Alcohol: 13%

Bernard Duseigneur ""Seizing the opportunity that nature gives us; that is the essence of biodynamics for me""

Bernard Duseigneur, hailing from a lineage of winemakers, assumed control of the family's domaine in 2002 after a stint in investment banking. Returning to his Mediterranean origins, he continued the legacy of his father and brother, ultimately settling in Châteauneuf-du-Pape on the left bank of the Rhône.

In Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the terroir isn't solely defined by iconic orange pebbles; it comprises diverse soils like red clays, limestone, sandstone sands, and loams from the Rhone's banks. Acknowledging that exceptional terroir alone isn't enough for quality wines, Bernard prioritizes soil vitality. His team nurtures a diverse flora and fauna that mobilize trace elements, fostering symbiosis between plant and soil.

""Halliday Wine Companion - Australian Winery of the Year 2022 & 2023""

Erin Larkin, Halliday Wine Companion ""This wine has been doing the rounds at wine shows in 2021, and has been picking up golds and favourable comments left, right, and centre. I can tell you why: it harnesses the weight, volume and voluptuousness of the 2 varieties, but re-presents them in a restrained and focused way. The phenolics are ever-present, shapely and balancing. All in all, a class act.""

Gabrielle Poy, The Real Review ""This is an impressive wine with body, flavour and nuance. Subtle aromas of earth, honey and lemon make way for a rich core that tails into a fine line of acidity.""

The Wine Front ""An organic MR from MR. Love it. Custard cream, pineapple, lemon curd and ginger. A rich feeling but decidedly fresh and uplifting expression of Marsanne Roussanne loaded with spice over all that generous and fruity character. Mellow, flowing, lively and generous with balance in spades. Delightful drinking ensues. Lots of character.""

Stuart Knox, The Real Review ""Bright lemon yellow in a glass that has a fragrant lift of white peach and honeysuckle aromas. A ripe and generous core of citrus and stone fruits drive the palate with a fine line of salty mineral acidity and hints of smoked spices underneath. Good length and crisp at the finish.""

James Suckling ""Sliced apples, fresh pears, grapefruits and jasmine on the nose. Some hazelnuts, too. Creamy and layered with a ripe, fleshy yet fresh core of fruit""

Erin Larkin, Halliday Wine Companion ""The best examples of this Rhône blend can have a biscuity dryness that offsets the typically rich and opulent fruit characters of both varieties. And so here. Balanced and long, both components are stitched together with a thread of saline acidity."" (2020 vintage)

Stuart Knox, The Real Review ""Medium straw-yellow hue. Honeysuckle, ripe pears and karkalla aromas. Medium to full on the palate, it has a fleshy core of orchard fruits with a saline minerality wrapping it up. Good acidity keeps it from fattening out too much and a nice peach skin fuzz gives length and dries the finish well ."" (2020 vintage)

62/38% marsanne/roussanne

Founded by one of the pioneers of the Margaret River winemaking region, David Hohnen, and his brother in law, Murray McHenry, an accomplished fine wine retailer. Both have been making wine in Margaret River since the early 1970s. McHenry Hohnen vineyards are 100% biodynamic. Their three unique vineyards (Burnside, Calgardup and Hazel’s) produce wines that are a reflection of the land. McHenry Hohnen focus on crafting site expressive wines and are known for producing some of the region's best wines.

Erin Larkin, Halliday Wine Companion ""...McHenry Hohnen is an estate on the move - divert your eyes at your peril.....McHenry Hohnen is tucked away off Bussell Highway to the south of Margaret River. The wines have bound from strength, a comment never truer than under the stewardship of winemaker Jacopo (Japo). Under his leadership, the wines have been catapulted into a new realm of quality. The chardonnays particularly exemplify that hard-to-achieve balance of pleasurable on release, and capable of graceful ageing. The move towards organics and sustainable farming has had a positive impact on the quality of the wines, and it is a delight to witness so much diversity in the vineyards - from experimental clones and new plantings, to sheep, chickens, olives and vegetables ""

Margaret River is one of the best known wine regions in Australia, recognized internationally for the quality of its wines and the natural beauty of the region. Although originally renowned for its unusually refined cabernet sauvignon and intensely citrusy chardonnay varieties, the region now produces high quality Semillon-Sauvignon blends and Shiraz.

Located in the south-western corner of Western Australia, it is famous for having a more 'European' wine style than its counterparts across Australia, owing to the regions temperate, coastal location which is very similar to that of Bordeaux.

Marsanne is the most popular white wine grape planted in the Northern Rhone wine region. In Hermitage, where the fruit reaches its best expression, it is usually blended with Roussanne and Clairette. The fruit is also grown in Australia, Spain, Switzerland and America.
Marsanne adds depth and rich textures to the wine. Through blending, the grape helps produce rich, deeply colored wines with flavors and scents of roasted nuts, pears, white peaches, honeydew melon, spice and flowers. With age, Marsanne based wines deepen in color and complexity. Wines produced from Marsanne are quite rich and can even develop a silky, exotic, oily texture.

Roussanne is a late-ripening variety that produces powerful white wines that offer pungent perfume featuring scents of fresh flowers, peaches, herbs, pears, spice, roasted nuts, and hints of pepper. Wines produced from Roussanne are quite rich and can even develop a silky, exotic, oily texture. Roussanne blended with Marsanne is the perfect pairing. Marsanne adds the fat, richness, oily textures, and sweetness to the wines, while Roussanne brings more acidity, elegance, and aromatic complexities to the wine.

Le Guide Hachette des Vins ""A very expressive profile for this wine aged in concrete vats: blackcurrant liqueur, jammy blackberry and musk. Aromas that we find melted in a mouth with an imposing tannic structure but perfectly coated by the flesh of the Merlot."" (2018 vintage)

Le Guide Hachette des Vins ""A beautiful outfit for the vintage...a very open wine with notes of fruit and spices, slightly evolved, pleasant with its suppleness."" (2013 vintage)

Le Guide Hachette des Vins ""This 2012 enchanted the jurors: deep color, complex nose of black fruits, highlighted by measured woodiness; round attack, on the fruit, structured and long palate, with velvety tannins. Power and finesse."" (2012 vintage)

Tasting Notes: Dark aromas of game, herbs and an earthy aroma that also features some dark fruit and a little mint and cola. It tastes delicious with the dark fruit taking centre stage in the mouth but still balanced by some nice earthy streaks. Hints of dried herbs from the nose carry over and you’ll also find some oaky liquorice notes. All of this is wrapped up in a very smooth, almost creamy texture. It ends dry with a mineral tinged finish featuring lingering cola and liquorice notes under more of that delicious dark fruit.

The Château Saint Julian is locatedi n the Entre deux Mers near the Abbaye Bénédictine de la Sauve Majeure. The 20 hectares of vineyard extend over the most beautiful terroir of the commune of Targon. The property features recent facilities which permit to produce a qualitative wine respecting the environment.

Chateau Saint Julian is the second wine made by the winemakers who from the remarkable Chateau La Grangere in St. Emilion. This Ecocert certified organic wine is made from mostly Merlot grown on limestone slopes in the Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux with an average age of 30 years. All of the grapes are hand-harvested and aged in barrique, with about 30% new barrels. The owner of this estate also owns the prestigious Saint-Emilion Grand Cru – the Château La Grangère – and a Graves de Vayres – the Château Tillede.

Entre-Deux-Mers is a large wine sub-region of Bordeaux in southwestern France. Its name translates literally as ""between two seas"", although the seas in question are in fact rivers – the Garonne and Dordogne, which respectively form the area's southern and northern boundaries. Entre-Deux-Mers is home to various appellations, which produce wines in styles ranging from the sweet botrytized whites of Cadillac, Loupiac and Sainte-Croix-du-Mont – all close to the northeast bank of the Garonne – to the dry table wines of Sainte-Foy and Graves de Vayres, closer to the Dordogne. The extended region along the Garonne, from the cluster of sweet white appellations as far as the area to the east of Bordeaux city, is the red wine appellation Côtes de Bordeaux – until 2009 called Premières Côtes de Bordeaux, a title now reserved for sweet whites.

Bordeaux Supérieur is an appellation tier applied to wines made within the generic Bordeaux AOP zone. They are produced from the classic Bordeaux grape varieties.

A Bordeaux Blend is any combination of those grape varieties typically used to make the red wines of Bordeaux. Cabernet Sauvignon is widely accepted as a compulsory component of any Bordeaux Blend along with Merlot. In fact, the majority of Bordeaux Blend wines are often made exclusively from a blend of these two varieties. The remaining components are Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec.

The versatile blend is typically made into crisp, dry wines, but it is also the blend of choice for the world's most prestigious sweet wine style, Sauternes. The blend is endowed with vibrant acidity and grassy aromas by Sauvignon Blanc, and its structure and mouthfeel from Semillon.

Anna Lee C. Iijima ""A vein of graphite extends from nose to finish in this plump, blueberry-scented blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Fresh black-plum and cherry flavors are ripe but pure, lifted by hints of blossomy perfume and a lingering crush of minerality on the finish. Although at its best young, the wine should hold through 2025"".

Wine Enthusiast ""This blend of Grenache, Carignan and Syrah offer elegant restraint alongside pristine black-cherry and berry exuberance. Fruity and forward, it's shaded by nuances of thyme and wild mint. Fresh acidity and firm tannins lend structure. Enjoy this approachable yet elegant wine now through 2023."" (2016 Vintage)

The Winemaker ""Beautiful deep colour of ruby colour. This wine is clean, bright. Aromatic nose, rich ripe fruit (blackberry and plum). Good concentration, wide and strong end of a long and beautiful evolution."" (2015 Vintage)

This wine is Grenache (51%), Syrah (15%), Carignan ( 23%) and Mourvèdre (11%).

While Chateau Maucoil only has a short history as a vineyard, the estate has a long history in the Rhone Valley that dates back to the Ancient Romans who used the property as an army fortress. Vines were planted in what we now know as Chateau Maucoil during the mid 1600s.

In 2014, Chateau Maucoil was certified as being 100% biodynamic. The Cotes du Rhone Villages appellation was introduced in 1966 and now applies to 16 in the southern Rhone Valley. Wines made under the appellation must meet higher standards than those of the plain Cotes de Rhone title and are from areas that show potential to produce distinctive wine of a high standard.

The Winemaker ""Aromas of cherries, cassis, blueberries, cedar, tobacco, cocoa, pencil, pepper, laurel, oregano and violet. Fleshy, juicy, velvety on the palate, dense fruit, delicately spicy, complex, very elegant and long-lasting. Aged for 12 months in 1/3 new oak barrels."" (2014 Vintage)

Jean-Francois Meynard and Christelle Gauthier produce wine from three different Bordeaux appellations, all close to the Dordogne River; Côtes de Castillon, Saint Emilion and Entre-Deux-Mers. The most famous estate being Château L’Etoile de Clotte, a Saint Emilion Grand Cru. Both of their families have roots in the region extending back to the 19th century. Located in Saint Magne De Castillon, Château Du Vieux Montpezat is a small 10 hectare property operated on the principles of organic agriculture.

Bordeaux's Côtes de Castillon appellation is a growing area with AOC status since 1989. The approximately 3000 hectares of vineyards border Saint-Émilion and Bergerac and has similar tasting wines which are less expensive than its famous neighbours.

Bordeaux, in the southwest of France, needs little introduction as one of the world's most famous, prestigious and prolific wine regions. Its three trump cards are diversity, quality and quantity. The majority of Bordeaux wines (nearly 90 per cent of production volume) are the dry, medium- and full-bodied red Bordeaux Blends that established its reputation. The finest (and most expensive) of these come from the great châteaux of the Haut-Médoc and the Right Bank appellations Saint-Émilion and Pomerol. The legendary reds are complemented by high-quality white wines, both dry styles (particularly from Pessac-Léognan) and the sweet, botrytized nectars of Sauternes.

A Bordeaux Blend is any combination of those grape varieties typically used to make the red wines of Bordeaux. Cabernet Sauvignon is widely accepted as a compulsory component of any Bordeaux Blend along with Merlot.

Anna Lee C. Iijima ""A vein of graphite extends from nose to finish in this plump, blueberry-scented blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Fresh black-plum and cherry flavors are ripe but pure, lifted by hints of blossomy perfume and a lingering crush of minerality on the finish. Although at its best young, the wine should hold through 2025"".

Wine Enthusiast ""This blend of Grenache, Carignan and Syrah offer elegant restraint alongside pristine black-cherry and berry exuberance. Fruity and forward, it's shaded by nuances of thyme and wild mint. Fresh acidity and firm tannins lend structure. Enjoy this approachable yet elegant wine now through 2023."" (2016 Vintage)

Robert Parker ""Another spice-filled effort ... it has a kiss of green in its leafy herbs, mint, incense and sweet red fruits. Moderately concentrated, medium-bodied and easy drinking."" (2015 Vintage)

Gault & Millau ""Amazing wine with wild scents, captivating red fruits and peony, violet, tinted eucalyptus that permanently mark the taste buds!"" (2015 Vintage)

Jancis Robinson ""Flattering, macerated red fruits. Very open nose and light. Good freshness"" (2015 Vintage)

Wine Spectator ""Juicy, with raspberry coulis and plum skin notes lined with hints of anise and toasted vanilla. Offers an open, easy finish. Drink now. 5,500 cases made."" (2015 Vintage)

The Winemaker ""Beautiful deep colour of ruby colour. This wine is clean, bright. Aromatic nose, rich ripe fruit (blackberry and plum). Good concentration, wide and strong end of a long and beautiful evolution."" (2015 Vintage)

While Chateau Maucoil only has a short history as a vineyard, the estate has a long history in the Rhone Valley that dates back to the Ancient Romans who used the property as an army fortress. Vines were planted in what we now know as Chateau Maucoil during the mid 1600s.

In 2014, Chateau Maucoil was certified as being 100% biodynamic. The Cotes du Rhone Villages appellation was introduced in 1966 and now applies to 16 in the southern Rhone Valley. Wines made under the appellation must meet higher standards than those of the plain Cotes de Rhone title and are from areas that show potential to produce distinctive wine of a high standard.

Jean-Francois Meynard and Christelle Gauthier produce wine from three different Bordeaux appellations, all close to the Dordogne River; Côtes de Castillon, Saint Emilion and Entre-Deux-Mers. The most famous estate being Château L’Etoile de Clotte, a Saint Emilion Grand Cru. Both of their families have roots in the region extending back to the 19th century. Located in Saint Magne De Castillon, Château Du Vieux Montpezat is a small 10 hectare property operated on the principles of organic agriculture.

Bordeaux's Côtes de Castillon appellation is a growing area with AOC status since 1989. The approximately 3000 hectares of vineyards border Saint-Émilion and Bergerac and has similar tasting wines which are less expensive than its famous neighbours.

Bordeaux, in the southwest of France, needs little introduction as one of the world's most famous, prestigious and prolific wine regions. Its three trump cards are diversity, quality and quantity. The majority of Bordeaux wines (nearly 90 per cent of production volume) are the dry, medium- and full-bodied red Bordeaux Blends that established its reputation. The finest (and most expensive) of these come from the great châteaux of the Haut-Médoc and the Right Bank appellations Saint-Émilion and Pomerol. The legendary reds are complemented by high-quality white wines, both dry styles (particularly from Pessac-Léognan) and the sweet, botrytized nectars of Sauternes.

A Bordeaux Blend is any combination of those grape varieties typically used to make the red wines of Bordeaux. Cabernet Sauvignon is widely accepted as a compulsory component of any Bordeaux Blend along with Merlot. In fact, the majority of Bordeaux Blend wines are often made exclusively from a blend of these two varieties. The remaining components are Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec.
