Summer

Welcome to our new H2Vin blog, where we will explore new and interesting wines together!

For us, wine is all about the person behind the bottle, that is why here at H2Vin we love to get to know the families and winemaking of our producers that dedicate a lifetime of love and care to their passion. Does this mean something to you?

In our opinion it means that we can be certain for every wine we sell, guaranteeing quality, provenance and absolute deliciousness, because we are free to buy the wines we really believe in, not just the ones that make the most money but the ones we really like to enjoy.

So for this summer we want to recommend some of our favourites to you:

So you don’t miss out, here’s a little taster to a couple of these amazing wines we’ve picked for you:

Mas Carlot Générations Blanc Costières de Nîmes 2020 – Mas Carlot is situated in the south of the Rhône Valley, extending across 76 hectares of pebbly land southeast of Nîmes. This full and fresh blend of 60% Roussanne, 30% Marsanne and 10% Viognier is outstanding. An elegant white that offers up notes of peach marmalade, apricots, honeyed pears, candle wax and a touch of buttered brioche. With a good fresh acidity as well as abundant fruit and flavour, this attractive, medium-bodied wine exceeds expectations. Pair this rich white well with shellfish, chicken, veal, pork and vegetables prepared with savoury butter, cream or mild cheese-based sauces.

Domaine de Fondrèche Ventoux Blanc 2018 – This wine summarises the philosophy of the estate, 20 years of work and restructuring of the vineyard. Striving for harmony, the winery maintains the health of the soil and grapes, growing them in the best ecological way possible. That means, no chemical fertilizers, using “green manure”, and respecting the lunar calendar which influences all of their interactions on the plant to strengthen the natural defenses of the vine. This wine is no doubt an expressive nose of white flowers, peach, and grapefruit. A citrus tonic palate where minerality and salinity brings a beautiful freshness. 30% Grenache blanc, 30% Roussanne, 30% Clairette, 10% Rolle.
