Domaine de Mayat
Family farm for 3 generations, Domaine de Mayat is located on the plateau of Fougueyrolles, and dominates the Dordogne valley at 90 meters altitude.
With a southern exposure, the soil is clay-siliceous and clayey-limestone with a high iron content.
The vineyard therefore benefits from the best criteria for the elaboration of its fine wines.

Calmel & Joseph – Chardonnay Villa Blanche, 2019
Very expressive with white flowers and fruity aromas of apricot and vineyard peach, along with dried fruit and nut overtones. Straightforward, clean, full and well-balanced on the palate, with a fresh and fruity finish revealing mango and citrus overtones. The oak is subtle and very smooth. This vintage shows lovely acidic tension: elegant.
Chardonnay are aged for three months in oak barrels (30% of the vintage).

Highly Recommanded by The Wine Merchant
Casta Diva DO Cosecha Miel Moscatel (50cl), 2013
The Moscatel grapes are late picked, resulting in a very high residual sugar. Ageing in a variety of barrels (including some Hungarian and Caucasian) enhances this already complex, deep flavoured wine which is characterised by orange peel, honey, raisins and spices and great length. A fantastic dessert wine.
Chateau Caronne Ste Gemme, Haut Medoc, 2014
Situated 500 metres from St Julien, adjacent to Château Gruaud Larose and Château Lascombes, this property is blessed with some very fine vineyards producing fruit worthy of Classes Growth status delivering outstanding value for money. In 2013 Francois Nony installed a new winemaking team, including Olivier Seze and Bruno Sauquet (previously at Montrose) to take this Château to the next level. This has proved to be a great decision.
Deep, almost opaque in colour, intense cassis dominates the bouquet but there is also a delicious freshness. Aged in 25% new oak, the palate is brooding, meaty and sturdy, balanced with beautifully ripe tannin and notes of cedar.
Château Filhot Grand Cru Classé, Sauternes, 2011 (375ml)
Intense aromas of beeswax and honey combine with a luscious, full-bodied palate of ripe tropical fruit, bitter orange and quince with lovely fresh acidity to balance the richness of this delicious sweet wine.
Classified a Second growth Cru Classé in 1855, Château Filhot is a famous Sauternes property producing wonderful sweet wines from Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes. The vineyard originally dates back to the seventeenth century and the Château was built in 1709. Now covering 62 hectares on deep gravel, sand and clay soils, Filhot displays the classic characteristics of Sauternes produced from low-yielding, nobly-rotted grapes individually picked by hand.
Chateau Le Doyenne, Premieres Cotes de Bordeaux,
- The 2016 La Doyenne, a Première Côtes de Bordeaux, has an understated but pure bouquet with red cherries, boysenberry jam and violet aromas that unfurl nicely in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, fine structure, subtle but slightly tarry fruit and a gently but insistent grip on the finish.
