Having been responsible in the past for buying wines form the South of France, I have a great deal of first-hand experience of the diversity available. I mean this not just in terms of interesting flavours and grapes but also the amount of poor wine that exists. Essentially, the process of sourcing wines in this part of France is arduous and you sometimes have to sift through a lot of bad wine to get to the good stuff. So I give a nod to Bruno and say thanks you for making this process a darn sight easier.

Bruno is actually descended from a famous wine-making family from Burgundy, but growing up in the South of France meant he turned his attention to the wealth of wines available in this part of the country. He began this journey in 1999 and teamed up with François Chamboissier in 2003 to extend their portfolio into the Southern Rhone.

    Picpoul de Pinet Racine, Bruno Lafon, Coteaux du Languedoc, 2015 75cl

    Floral and enticing on the nose, exuberantly fresh on the palate with pear drop fruit, a slightly salty edge and underlying minerality. This is an incredibly fruity and concentrated Picpoul - yet still fine and elegant, with a very long finish
