We first met Jacques Frelin In Paris in 1987 and this pioneer of the French organic wine movement has been our most important supplier almost from that moment. Originally from the Vendée region he worked initially with his now ex-wife at Domaine de Clairac, then with Louis Andrieu and Olivier Azan. He now runs the operation single-handedly but with the backing of his old friend Frédéric Lachaux.
Organic vineyards represented – 40 hectares. Organic since 1983.

Muscat de Rivesaltes ‘T de Terroirs’ AC 50cl
This highly seductive sweety from the Pyrenées Orientales bowled me over when I first tasted it. Attractively packaged and with a beautiful golden hue, its nose is intense with characteristic honey, rosewood and citrus overtones. In the mouth it’s clean and equally rich with caramel/toffee flavours but never strays over to the wrong side of sweet. Drink as a luxurious apéritif, with chocolate desserts, or with its perfect match – Roquefort.
