Essential Festive Wines

Posted on: December 13, 2019
Festive Wines

We list just over 550 wines and have 250 on our website. We’re really proud to offer such a great choice of wines (do not hesitate to get in touch for a full list) but at this time of year, many of us can be fairly time poor. We find ourselves rushing around trying to get to one Christmas event or show after another, plus trying to work, get the decorations up, do a food shop and buy presents. Phew! To save a bit of time trying to navigate the huge choice of wines on offer, we have chosen 12 red and 12 white, all under £15 that will perfect for Christmas lunch, New Year parties or an easy drinking wine for slouching in front of the telly. 

Aged to Perfection

Our Mature Wine Picks

‘Tis the season for indulgence (refer to pic above) but why not enhance those delicious family meals and dinner parties with some wines that have gotten better with age?!  We at de Burgh, do not just like to drink wines that are a few years old, we also absolutely LOVE wines that are 10 or 15 years old and we have picked some real Christmas crackers for you….

Sybille Kuntz
Riesling Scharz 2007

The Scharz Auslese is an exceptional wine. It is not produced every year, only in the best vintages. Rich and complex on the palate with hints of that old classic Riesling characteristic- Petrol following on with flavours of orange peel tangerine dried apricot cooked nectarine orange marmalade. Off dry, but can be drunk anytime, but will go especially well with an abundant cheeseboard. A wine to be savoured. BUY


Chateau Moulin Haut-Laroque
Fronsac 2008  

We have tasted hundreds of Bordeaux over the years and this one really stood out. For a mature wine, we were bowled over by the quality, drinkability and price. Affordable and brilliant.

Chateau Moulin Haut-Laroque is a small family run estate who have a passion for making excellent Bordeaux. The vineyards are spread over 16 hectares in Fronsac with 65% Merlot, 20% Cabernet France, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Malbec- which happens to be at least 100 years old! The vines are on average 40 years old which gives real concentration of fruit. BUY


These are just few aged wines we have picked for the festive season. We have many more excellent cellared wines in our warehouse. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you would like to see a full list.

Domaine Sainte Croix

Posted on: December 4, 2019

Domaine Sainte Croix is owned and run by the English husband and wife team of Jon and Elizabeth Bowen. These are truly artisan wines crafted in an unfashionable area of France that has long been dominated by co-operative production.The gnarled vines are over 100 years old, production is organic and the wines display all the hallmarks of elegant living wines that have been carefully crafted with minimal sulphur and loads of love. They are an amazing set of wines which are highly recommended.

Acclaimed wine journalist Jamie Goode from his WineAnorak website, recently interviewed Jon and Elizabeth Bowen from Domaine Sainte in the village of Fraisse des Corbieres. CLICK HERE for the link to the article

We are proud to stock 5 of Domaine Sainte Croix’s wines –

Domaine Sainte Croix La Serre Blanc 2018 – A powerful full-bodied white, made from Grenache Blanc and Grenache Gris. Fresh with beautiful terroir-driven complexity, the mineral and citrus structure effortlessly lifts the richness. Finishes with notes of spearmint, white peach and cashew. BUY here..

Domaine Sainte Croix Le Fournas 2016 – Le Fournas is a delicious blend of Carignan (40%), Grenache (23%), Syrah (27%) & Mourvedre (10%). Rich aromas of blackcurrant fruits and dark leaves along with damson, loganberry and redcurrant notes. There is no oak on this wine, just lashing of lush fruit and fresh stone notes. BUY here..

Domaine Sainte Croix Magneric 2015 – A full-bodied blend of Old Vine Carignan, Old Vine Grenache, Syrah & a splash of Mourvedre. Cassis and redcurrant, with a black olive tapenade note giving a velvet palate. The fruit is complemented by a touch of pepper and barrel spice, with the power well balanced by freshness. The tannins are full and dense but soft and ripe. BUY here..

Domaine Sainte Croix Pourboire Nature 2018 – A no added Suphur blend of Carignan (80%) and Grenache (20%). Fresh and vibrant blackcurrant and plum notes dominate with crushed stones and gravel notes undernearth. The tannins are super fine and intergrated. This is a wonderful example of a fault free Natural Wine. BUY here…

Domaine Sainte Croix La Part des Anges 50cl, 2015 – The Part des Anges is a late-harvest Old Vine Carignan Noir (80%) and Syrah (20%), partly air-dried after harvest for 6 weeks to increase concentration by “raisining”. Oozing with the essence of black mulberry and fig on the nose. The palate is luscious with fig, prune, sweet spice, black chocolate and Turkish coffee on the palate. A sweet red wine whose sweetness is balanced by freshness and lightness. SORRY this is out of stock at the moment due to only being produced in very small quantities but more will arrive in the New Year!

If you have any questions about these wines, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
