86 Points Wine Enthusiast (2013 vintage)
“Soft and round, this is a wine that has the warmth of the Alentejo coupled with a tangy, fresh slice of lemon. Blending Antão Vaz, Roupeiro and Perrum, it’s a wine to drink now, or just age for a few months.”
Herdade do Esporão – Quatro Castas, Alentejo, 2014/15
Deep colour and intense. Aroma scented with berries, ensnared in subtle spicy notes.Solid and dense palate with creamy texture, highlighting the ripe fruit wrapped in fine tannins give it structure and a long and elegant finish.
90 Points Wine Enthusiast.
“Still young and showing fresh fruitiness, this wine needs time to calm down and broaden out. Made of four classic varieties in the Esporão vineyard, it’s dense, stalky and still full of tannins. Give this wine until 2016.”
Herdade do Esporão – Duas Castas, Alentejo, 2015
Pale lemon colour. An elegant and refreshing white wine with notes of citrus fruits and green apples. Lovely concentration and a pleasant finish.
88 Points Wine Enthusiast
“Duas Castas, two grapes, is a blend of Gouveio and Antão Vaz. Together they give a smooth, fruity wine, tangy in orange zest and bright acidity. The wine has weight and richness, with delicious hints of white peach to finish.”
Located in the heart of the Alentejo region, the Herdade do Esporão Estate was established in 1267. Having passed through various families and Counts of the region, the property has been owned by the Roquette family since 1973. Their first wine was bottled in 1985.

86 Points Wine Spectator
“As fresh as can be, this is a bright, lively and lightly perfumed wine. It has grapefruit, apricot fruit and a touch of minerality. Drink through 2015.”
This unique, balanced, aromatic varietal expresses the true potential of this variety allied to the Estate’s complex soil geology and climatic conditions. Clear, pale straw with green hues. Vibrant grassy aroma with tropical and citric fruit notes of lime and grapefruit. The palate is fresh and elegant with mineral notes and a clean acid finish which is long and persistent.
Domaine des Jeanne – Rosé, Luberon 2016
Domaine des Jeanne was formed when Welshman Lord Mervyn Davies of Abersoch was introduced to winemaker Alexandre Samour, whilst sourcing the perfect rosé for his daughter’s wedding in 2011.
The Vineyard in Oppède, in the Luberon region of Provence, is situated between the mountains and the sea, close to the legendary wine-producing commune of Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
The domaine’s first harvest was in 2012, releasing their first rosé in 2013, named ‘Jeanne’ after his Mervyn’s wife and Alex’s daughter. Jeanne appropriately means ‘divine gift’, and represents the importance of family to both founders.
Lovingly produced from grenache, syrah and clairette grape varieties, its rose petal colour precedes a red and white fruit bouquet highlighted with citrus notes; a well-balanced crisp palate, full of freshness, with a subtle fruity finale.
This wine works well on its own or partnered with fish, spicy foods and lamb. Enjoy over the next couple of years.
