Special Summer Offer

We would like to draw your attention to our Special Offer on a selection of our classic wines.

You will find below some of your old favourites but at the same time, we are highlighting some lesser known high quality wines that we feel deserve a little publicity and with a still relatively decent exchange rate, you should take advantage! All these wines are great to enjoy now and some will keep for several more years

.

You can buy and mix any quantity, whether it’s for a few cases of everyday wine and / or a couple of bottles of something more exclusive for your special occasions or as generous gifts. For a small supplement you can even send cases or bottles to friends in France, or indeed to yourself if you are going to be in France on holiday - it will save you lugging your holiday requirements down!

Even if you cannot get over yet to collect, you can still reserve your requirements at these reduced prices, by going to our secure page on this link where you can copy & paste your choices under "Name of Wine" and by entering the number of bottles that you would like. Then fill in your card details and press send. This simply sends us a secured e-mail to which we will respond and confirm your order. Once confirmed, we will pull your wines out of stock and charge your card. We can then keep them (rent-free for 3 months) on one side until you arrive.

This Offer is "first come, first served" and will run until stocks expire or until 31st August 2016 at the latest. For your amusement, we have mentioned some of the prices charged in the UK for the same wines!

WHITE WINE

Normal Offer£ Equiv
HALF BOTTLES Muscadet de Sèvre et Maine, Sur Lie, La Griffe Bernard Chéreau, (Loire), 2014
Chéreau Carré is one of the best producers of Muscadet. This bone-dry wine has a zingy freshness about it, without the acidity that so many Muscadets can have. Also, having been made "sur lie", the wine has more body and spiciness. This wine is of high quality. Half bottles only on offer.
3,20€
2,90€£2.40
Le Petit Pont, Réserve, Blanc, Vin de Pays d’Oc, 2015
A very attractive soft dry white wine made from Vermentino and Chardonnay close to Béziers in the Languedoc. The wine has a vivacity and a fresh aroma of white fruits. It is really refreshing and makes easy drinking. Extra-ordinary quality at such a sensible price!
4,20€3,85€£3.20
Viognier, Domaine Etang des Colombes (Languedoc), 2015
A favourite: a superior Viognier, with plenty of fresh fruity aromas. Perfect for refreshing summertime drinking – with or without food. This domaine in the Corbières region has been run by the highly respected Gualco family over four generations. In our view, as an inexpensive Viognier this is one of the best – it’s delicious!
7,90€7,50€£6.20
Pouilly Fumé, Domaine Tabordet (Loire), 2015
This wine from the village of Pouilly-sur-Loire is just how it should be – dry, light and fresh Sauvignon fruit with a hint of spiciness. It’s crisper in style than our Sancerre. This is an immediately impressive wine from this small family producer.
12,10€11,60€£9.70
Bourgogne Chardonnay, Domaine Jean-Luc Maldant (Burgundy), 2014
As soon as you put your nose to the glass, you can tell that this is a bit special. It has freshness combined with minerality and a light "lemony" oak. Probably best enjoyed whilst young, this is a wine that goes well with food, whilst also being easy to appreciate by itself. Proper white Burgundy!
12,50€11,80€£9.80
Saint-Péray, Le Mialan, Domaine Ferraton Père & Fils (Rhône), 2014
This dry white is made entirely from Marsanne grown on limestone and granite. 30% of the juice is then fermented and aged in oak, with the balance made in stainless steel vats. In Spring, these two wines are blended. The result is a fresh aromatic style, backed with a little spiciness from the distinctive soil and the oak. With its complex flavour, this is probably best to enjoy with white meats or creamy cheeses. Should remain good for at least another 3 years
12,70€12.20€£10.20
Riesling, Trottacker de Ribeauvillé, Robert Faller et Fils (Alsace), 2013
Robert Faller is based in the picturesque town of Ribeauvillé, where many of Alsace’s best Rieslings are produced. Fabulous: from argilo-calcareous subsoil, this wine is bone dry but with plenty of typical Riesling flavour. We always compare Faller’s wines very favourably against Trimbach’s – but at so much better value. In our view, this wine is of a Grand Cru quality.
12,90€11,90€£9.90
Saint-Romain Blanc, Domaine Alain Gras (Burgundy), 2014
Alain Gras is the acknowledged "king" of Saint-Romain wine making, and he tells us that his wines are found in (almost) every Michelin three starred restaurant in France. His is the classic white Burgundy that is made to age. His wines are made from 40 year old vines, fermented and partly matured in cask and then bottled after 12 months. This wine is delicious now and will keep developing for another 18 months. A high quality white Burgundy at exceptional value, especially in view of the upcoming shortages owing to the bad weather this year: buy now!
19,80€18,80€£15.70
Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc, Vieilles Vignes, Tardieu Laurent (Rhône), 2013
With only 7% of total production, white Châteauneuf is quite a rarity. Michel Tardieu, owner of Tardieu Laurent, works with some of the area’s best producers and has developed an enviable reputation. Full and rich and spicy, this is a great wine made from 50% each Roussanne and Grenache and aged in new oak. But we only have a limited quantity !
29,90€28,90€£24.10
Gewürztraminer, Vendanges Tardives, Robert Faller et Fils (Alsace), 2007
Aromatic, sweet lusciously flavoured and even, with the taste of "noble rot", this wine is not heavy or cloying but is a delight to savour at the end of your special meal. These 75cl bottles will serve 9 people happily but if there should be any left in the bottle, as always with a sweet wine, put it back in the fridge and it will keep for several days or even weeks. This wine should remain good for 10 years.
34,90€31,50€£26.20

ROSÉ WINE

Le Petit Pont, Réserve, Rosé, Vin de Pays d’Oc, 2015
Grenache and Cinsault are the two grapes that have gone into the making of this refreshing rosé. This is a good wine by any standards but it is baffling how such good quality can be produced at this very reasonable price. The wine is light and dry, fresh and "grapey" - perfect for easy summer drinking. (UK price is £7.15)
4,20€3,85€£3.20
Château de Sours, Bordeaux Rosé, 2015
This dry fruity rosé is made from 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. It has been hugely popular in the UK where it sells for much higher prices! This delicious wine will be good to enjoy for at least another year. This is your opportunity to stock up. (UK price is £8.99)
8,40€7,70€£6.40

RED WINE

Le Petit Pont, Réserve, Rouge, Vin de Pays d’Oc, 2015
This extra-ordinarily delicious wine is made from Grenache, Cinsault and Cabernet Sauvignon. With an appealingly soft, full and juicy red fruit flavour, this is a great example of the new quality coming from the Languedoc. (UK price is £7.15)
4,20€3,85€£3.20
Carignan, Etang des Colombes (Vin de Table)
A delicious smooth red with a lovely flavour of soft, brambly ripe fruit. It is unusual to find a 100% Carignan such as this and in flavour terms, it provides an interesting change from some of the other ubiquitous grape varieties. From the excellent Château Etang des Colombes in the Corbières region of the Languedoc, we think you could enjoy this!
5,20€4,80€£4.00
Château Haut-Pingat, Bordeaux (Bordeaux), 2014
A really good quality flavoursome claret, made under the supervision of the owners of the great Château Kirwan in Margaux. A deliciously fruity and smooth wine. A great everyday claret that knocks spots off others’ much more expensive wines!
6,40€5,80€£4.80
Pinot Noir by Jeff Carrel, Vin de Pays d’Oc (Languedoc), 2015
A delightful fresh and fragrant style of Pinot Noir, that offers super value for money. The wine has plenty of light juicy fruit and in particular, makes delicious summer drinking. Super value.
7,90€7,40€£6.20
Torus, Alain Brumont (Madiran), 2011
The distinctive label on this elegant bottle says it all... "rich, powerful, lush, fresh, charming…". Madiran is different – it makes deep flavoursome wines from the Tannat grape but Alain Brumont has created here a wine that has plenty of richness without being heavy. Particularly good with cheeses or richer meats.
9,80€8,90€£7.40
Crozes-Hermitage Rouge, La Matinière, Domaine Ferraton (Rhône), 2014
A full rich and spicy wine from the northern Rhône. Made from 100% Syrah, this is vinified traditionally meaning that the wine has a firm "red fruit" character. This is better than many other more expensive wines from this area. We’d recommend this to go with richer meats or cheeses.
11,90€11,40€£9.50
Gigondas, Romane Machotte, Pierre Amadieu (Rhône), 2013
Pierre Amadieu’s philosophy is simple: to produce wines that are fruity, supple and elegant – not heavy and over-extracted as can be the case in so many Rhône wines. His wine is fruity and his wine making style may remind you of a fine red Burgundy. This is gorgeous – soft but with a richness that comes through on the palate. Fantastic value, and you could keep it at least another 5 years.
12,70€12,20€£10.20
Cornas, Coteaux, Tardieu Laurent (Rhône), 2013
This top of the range Cornas is made from 60 year old Syrah grown across three different vineyards to give complexity of flavour. It is then aged in two types of new oak. Whilst this is a full rich and smooth style of spicy red, this Cornas has a fresh elegant aroma and is only 13.5° in alcohol.
29,90€28,00€£23.30
Hermitage, Tardieu Laurent (Rhône), 2012
A full flavoured yet surprisingly elegant wine made entirely from 60 year old Syrah by one of the Rhône's most prestigious negociants with the helping hand of consultant Philippe Cambie. This red should be good for many more (20?) years.
53,70€49,90€£41.60
In wooden casesChâteau Kirwan, 3ème cru Margaux (Bordeaux), 2000
Even at 16 years of age, this top Margaux wine is still young, showing a rich and firm character. 2000 was considered one of the best vintages of recent years and in our view this wine will be good for another 5 years at least. Fantastic quality.
98,80€95,80€£79.80

CHAMPAGNE

Charles de Fère, Tradition Chardonnay, Brut
For the price, or even at any price, this is a lovely wine with its delicate honeyed fruity aromas. In our view, it is better than so many cheap champagnes. If this were a champagne it would be called a Blanc de Blancs, being made entirely from white grapes – in this case, the classic chardonnay, that is used in Champagne.
6,90€6,50€£5.40
Crémant d’Alsace, Cuvée Julien, Dopff Au Moulin, Brut
Traditionally made Crémant d’Alsace with more apparent fruit than other sparkling wines under the Brut classification of dryness. Delicious, dry and really easy to appreciate.
8,90€8,00€£6.70
Bauchet, Séduction Rosé, Brut Champagne
This gorgeous delicate pink dry champagne has floral and red fruit aromas: refreshing for apéritif. On the palate, you will find that the wine fills out in style so that it could also be served with red meat dishes. For the aficionados: it’s 75% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Noir and 15% red wine from the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims; aged 24 months before disgorgement. This is great champagne at a great price.
27,90€25,30€£21.10
Tribaut, Grande Cuvée Spéciale, Premier Cru, Brut Champagne
The small grower G. Tribaut in the village of Hautvillers, just outside Epernay is one of our favourites at the moment. This understated wine is gorgeous and is made from 50% Chardonnay and 50% Pinot Noir. It has fine bubbles and is very elegant - light, fresh and soft but with plenty of flavour. Fabulous: a really impressive champagne. If you want GREAT Champagne without breaking the bank, look no further.
28,50€26,50€£22.10
Sir Winston Churchill Cuvée, Pol Roger, Brut Vintage 2002 Champagne
One of the world’s finest and most respected of all the de luxe cuvée champagnes. It has been "constructed" more like a fine wine with its complex layers of flavour, combining "citric" freshness with a toasty richness behind. This work of art is made from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and has a very long aftertaste. Each bottle also comes in a magnificent box.

Boursot's Hotel Offer

As you may know, we have a list of local hotels, B&Bs, restaurants, golf clubs and places of interest on our website under the Local Info button from our Home Page - or directly here. We hope you will find this helpful. Whilst talking about Local Info, we also list the Bank Holidays so that you do not find, on getting here, that everything is closed (except Boursot's Wine Collection of course which remains open every day except Sundays).

We had heard reports of improved quality at 4 star Hôtel Château de Cocove, just 10 minutes away from Ardres, and with this in mind, we held our Burgundy dinner there in April 2016. It was widely felt by those attending that this hotel was a good addition to our selection of quality establishments in the area. The quality and service of food, as well as the quality of the rooms were all good and we are pleased to be able to announce a new alliance with the hotel whereby if you mention Boursot’s Wine Collection, they will give you 15% off their room rates. Enjoy the splendid setting that can be previewed on www.chateaudecocove.com.

We are pleased to bring you a new partnership with the Michelin starred Hôtel La Matelote opposite Nausicaa on the sea front in Boulogne sur Mer where as well as its great position, the food is of notably high quality. The hotel also has a swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna and hammam. The Offer comprises dinner for 2 (the Saveurs de la Mer menu) and a night in a "Superior" double room with 2 breakfasts. From Monday to Friday, the all-in price of dinner, bed and breakfast for two at 230€ (instead of their normal 283€) or on Saturdays and Bank Holidays at 310€ (instead of their normal 330€).

If you are a "foodie" we are pleased to bring you a new offer from the 4 star Hostellerie de 3 Mousquetaires which is about 30 minutes' south of Ardres in Aire sur la Lys. Here you will enjoy a cosy atmosphere and fine cuisine as some of you will recall after some of our spectacular dinners there in January. Chef proprietor David Wojtkowiak worked at the Berkeley Hotel in London before setting up his own restaurants in northern France and so speaks good English.

This offer is available to you during the week but not at weekends. Normally a room for two costs from 115€, breakfast 15€ per person and dinner typically 45€ per person: total 235€. The offer to Boursot's Wine Collection customers is an all-in price of dinner, bed and breakfast for two at 95€ per person. When you book, you must mention Boursot's Wine Collection to get these special terms. You can call on +33 321 39 01 11 or there is a booking form on:
www.hostelleriedes3mousquetaires.com/fr/reservations.php

Also, as a Boursot's Wine Collection customer, you have access to reduced rates at the 4 star Hôtel Château Tilques between here and Saint-Omer. Here they are giving you a special price on their superior "Luxe" room at 159€ per double or twin room (or 135€ per single room) any night of the week. While you may see a "special price" on their own and some other websites, that price excludes breakfast at 16€ per person whereas our Offer includes it.

When booking, please mention Boursot to get your special rates.
