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.

Roussanne No 35, La Marouette (6x75cl)
Our first 100% Roussanne and a wine we’re very pleased with. You’ll find a whole bundle of stone fruit – apricot, white peach, nectarine – with a delicious scoop of galia melon at the core so there’s a very attractive fruit element here. Add to that a classic vein of minerals, honey and white pepper to produce a white of considerable character and deceptive richness. This is particularly good with Thai food as it can take a little heat.
