NEW! Quincy Domaine de Chevilly, Yves Lestourgie, Loire, France 2017

14.95

“I was staggered by how reasonably priced this piercingly elegant wine was at £14.95. I had expected it to be much closer to £20.” - Tamlyn Currin, ‘Wine of the Week’ (Jancis Robinson.com)

With its juicy citrus fruit, gunflint and nettles, this racy Quincy (pronounced ‘Can See’) is a great substitute for a Pouilly-Fumé or a Sancerre and it doesn’t make your wallet wince. Grapefruit and blackcurrant leaf bring extra liveliness to the palate although there’s not much by way of quince, which is odd, given its name. In fact it’s not very quincy at all. Never mind. It’s just the ticket for cooling your brow during the dog days of summer. What’s that song? Oh yes. “I Quincy clearly now the rain has gone”. Sorry. 13.5%.


Press review:

Jancis Robinson (Tamlyn Currin):
“Gunflint and apples. So crisp and dry and flinty and focused that it's practically a razor carved from stone. Yet it fills the mouth (perhaps more with the rattle of sabres than seduction), and it lifts the palate like a shot of wasabi. Precise and long range. Quincy with a call to arms. Good Value. Drink 2018-2022” 17 points
