Jean-Jaques Breton 'Le Fusil de Chasse' | 2014 | Pouilly Fumé | Loire, France £27.50/6.70
Appellation-level Sauvignon Blanc with style.  Blackcurrant and citrus on the nose precedes hallmark gunmetal minerality.

Partida Creuss 'Blanco Natural' | 2015 | Macabeo & Cartoixa Vermell | Catalunya, Spain £30.00

Jean-Christophe Garnier 'Bézigon' | 2014 | Chenin Blanc | Loire, France £34.00

A deliciously rich, spiced and velvet-smooth number from this famed Port producer using a myriad of Douro varietals.

Meinklang | 2015 | Zweigelt | Burgenland, Austria £29.50/£7.30
The key Austrian grape is reminiscent of a heavier Pinot Noir - juicy forest fruits, but with that dank note of the undergrowth.

Charles Joguet 'Silénes' | 2011 | Chinon | Loire, France £30.00
Refined single varietal Cabernet Franc.  Softly textured with ripe plums, forest berries and the lightest touch of oak.

Karim Vionnet 'KV' | 2015 | Beaujolais-Villages | Beaujolais, France £31.50/7.70
A lip-smacking Gamay with deliciously concentrated, sappy fruitiness that perfectly expresses the tiny 5-hectare domiane it comes from.
