Robert Rolls Money Week Wine Club Offer
During September we were exceedingly pleased to be featured by wine writer Matthew Jukes in his popular Money Week Magazine Wine Club. Each month Matthew selects a leading wine merchant and works with them to choose a selection of wines to offer to his readers. As you can see from the below, not only did Matthew choose an excellent selection of wines, he was also generous with his praise – my ears are burning somewhat!
You can see Matthew’s write up on us, and the wines, below.
We are offering a mixed case containing two bottles of each wine for £195.00, as well as discounts on unmixed cases of six.
To order from this offer simply email me at email@example.com and let me know what you would like.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Thanks, best wishes,
“The Robert Rolls cellar is like the Old Curiosity Shop of the wine world, and my selection of six thrilling creations demonstrates perfectly the uniqueness and creativity of this wine merchant. Jack Chaddock, cellar master supreme, makes short notes on every wine submitted for me to taste. They are some of the most fascinating in our business, adding colour, detail and subtle explanation of some of the more intricate nuances in the wines. You cannot afford to miss out on tasting our MWWC wines this month because they will be sure to expand your vinous horizons.”Mathew Jukes, Money Week, September 2021
Domaine Preignes Le Neuf Viognier 2019
£11.95 per bottle. £64.50 per six.
“I remember a column I wrote many moons ago in my weekly column which stated, ‘Don’t buy Viognier without me.’ I like fewer than 5% of Viogniers that I taste each year, and this is because this grape is a shocker in the wrong hands – fat, oily, confected, greasy and clumsy are various crimes levelled against this grape. Preignes Le Neuf is spot on with a terrific, invigorating perfume, a slender chassis and a crisp finish. Less is way more, and this wine is a superstar with a tiny price tag.”*
Figuière Méditerranée Blanc 2020
£13.95 per bottle / £75.00 per six
“I love the rosés from this estate, but I have never tasted this superb, forward-drinking 100% Rolle (aka Vermentino), and it is nothing short of thrilling. Superbly-dry, hauntingly floral and raspier and more combative than an ocean of Sauvignon Blanc / Semillon blends, there is a genuine essence of Provence here which is as unmissable as it is enticing. It also manages to capture the brightness and innocence of its flavour on its label design, which is another skill altogether.”*
Domaine Caillot Herbeaux 2015
£23.95 per bottle / £129.00 per six
“How on earth does a Bourgogne Blanc from an old orchard in the center of Meursault manage to age beautifully for six years and then perform as this wine does on the nose and palate? You know I am going to use the term ‘mini-Meursault’ here, so I will get this out of the way, but the intrinsic quality and restraint in this wine is baffling. If you want to drink effortlessly classy white Burgundy, at the top of its game, for a little over twenty quid – this is it!”*
Famille Gras Cotes-du-Rhone VV 2017
£14.95 per bottle / £80.50 per six
“Using fifty-year-old (plus) vines and no trace of oak whatsoever, this wine is a direct expression of the exquisite Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault grapes found at this highly respected property. My short tasting note read, ‘Autumn in a glass’ and, expanding on this heady perfume and evocative flavour, there is silkiness here which is mesmerising, too. Gras will tell you this wine is all about the fruit – and I have not tasted fruit as focussed or as pure this year.”*
Domaine Richou Châteliers 2018
£16.95 per bottle / £96.00 per six
“There is no official Gamay hierarchy, and you would expect most of the Kings and Queens of this great grape to hail from Beaujolais. But there is a powerful renaissance for this grape in the Loire Valley, and Les Châteliers is an elite example of what you can expect when you use tip-top organic grapes and then leave oak out of the equation altogether. The directness and lip-smacking nature of the lusty blackberry-soaked fruit here is nothing short of hypnotic and this wine, like the CdR, is tailor-made for the finest autumnal recipes.”*
Château Grand Peyruchet 2016, Loupiac
£23.95 per bottle / 129.00 per six
“I don’t think I have selected a sweet wine for MWWC before, and when this heavenly Loupiac jumped into my glass, it made the cut immediately. Grand Peyruchet is a dreamboat from start to finish with waxy lemons, crème anglaise, honeysuckle, apricots and patisseries tones cavorting in the glass. Add to this that this cosmic wine is a ‘full’ bottle and not a ‘half’, and this makes the price simply unmissable.”*
