The Old Fire Station, Old Market, Nailsworth, Gloucestershire

Domaine de L’Alliance, Sauternes, V & D Alibrand

It was a big move to go from deep sea fisherman in Vendée to a producer of world class Sauternes is but when Daniel Alibrand took over his wife’s family vineyards next to Château de Fargues and just a few kilometres from Yquem, this is precisely what happened. Working entirely on organic principles in the vineyard, Daniel and Valérie are making some extraordinarily fine wines which echo those of their neighbours. Intense, racy, with notes of orange blossom and white peach, grilled with a hint of caramel, this is truly stunning.
