Bordeaux

Château Argadens - Private Cellar House Claret

Domaine Laurent Cognard

Rather as dogs resemble their owners, so Laurent Cognard’s wines resemble him – rumbustious, outspoken and generous. Recently featured in the fabulously glossy World of Fine Wine magazine as a vigneron to watch, we fear that our secret about his wines may be starting to get out.

McHenry Hohnen

Australian wine made its name by being bold and brash – good quality but far from elegant. The last few years have, however, seen a complete volte face, seeing some wines that are so subtle you would be hard pushed to say that they came from the New World, let alone Australia
