Exclusive Latour


Latour‘Would you spend €130 of your own money on a bottle of this wine ?’ I asked fellow tasters who included wine writers and restaurateurs.

‘Not really’ was the unanimous response.
We were tasting Louis Latour Corton-Charlemange Grand Cru wines from 2008 to 2010 and we had just been told the retail price.
Louis-Fabrice Latour was conducting the tasting and he went into considerable detail about the terroir within which the wines are produced.

Biodynamic Moser

Much of the theory of biodynamic farming makes perfect sense. Get rid of chemicals, be they in fertilizers or pesticides and create a balance of natur

Wine System Launched

Coravin, Inc. has announced that its award winning Coravin Wine Access System, a new technology that allows users to pour and enjoy wine from their favourite bottles without pulling the cork, will now be available  in Ireland, via distributor Findlater Wine and Spirit Group. 
For the first time, wine enthusiasts are able to enjoy wine by the glass without committing to the whole bottle. Coravin’s wine access technology leaves the cork in place, safeguarding the wine from oxidisation and allowing it to age naturally. Wine lovers can enjoy and share the same bottle during multiple occasions, over weeks, months or even longer without any wastage. Coravin also enables wine drinkers to access wine across multiple bottles during a single occasion.
