From one of the most beautiful crus in the southern Rhône, a complex blend of organically grown Grenache and Syrah from a 90-year-old plot, packed with dark fruit aromas interwoven with cocoa, toast and spices. Lovely concentration, dark mellow flavours and developing tannins that make for a long finish.

"Our selection parcellaire, ‘Les Hauts de Julien’ 2013, was harvested on 18 and 19 October with beautiful mature Grenache and Syrah. The end of the alcoholic fermentations is carried out in new oak casks. The nose is very complex, with notes of black fruit, cocoa, toast and spices. This wine is concentrated, dark, and has rich tannins with great length and a persistent finish.

The vintage started with a long winter and one of the driest ones in the past years followed by an inexistent Spring. The crop development was very slow due to important climatic variations. The winemakers’ work was therefore crucial to get good quality grapes in small quantities. 2013 was a complicated vintage, and late – but is wonderfully balanced and very promising."

92/100 Wine Advocate, Jeb Dunnuck - 01/10/2015 A big step up over the Les Cornuds, the 2013 Côtes du Rhône Villages Vinsobres les Hauts de Julien is a parcel selection of Syrah and Grenache from the cooler, windy Vinsobres region located in the northern part of the southern Rhône. Inky colored and mostly opaque, it reveals gorgeous, northern Rhône-like characteristics of black and blue fruits, pepper, violets and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, elegant and seamless, with building tannin and a great finish, it can be enjoyed today, but will benefit from short term cellaring and have a decade or more of longevity.

One of the effects of COVID-19 is increased business for online businesses and courier companies, and this has led to delays despite everyone's best efforts.

PLEASE ALLOW EXTRA TIME: UP TO FIVE WORKING DAYS for deliveries, though many arrive sooner than this.

We recommend that, for instance, you order as early as possible in the week if you are choosing wine for the weekend.

Any delays are likely to be more significant in more densely populated areas of the country.

All other orders: €15 nationwide flat rate

Orders received by midday Monday to Thursday are dispatched that day or the next day.

Orders received by noon on a Friday are dispatched that day or on the following Monday.

Online orders

Our online orders are delivered by courier to ensure fast and reliable delivery of each carefully packaged consignment. Because nobody likes breakages, we use very strong and secure packaging specially designed to protect wine bottles. 

Personalised champagne orders are dispatched to meet your requested deadline, or otherwise as soon as possible. Please allow at least one extra working day for these orders to be prepared.

Eircodes please

The ideal delivery address has someone available to sign for parcels during office hours. This may mean that a work address is a better choice than a home address, as each delivery of our lovely wine needs to be signed for. An Eircode eliminates any doubt about the delivery location, and you can find or check Eircodes here.

Phone numbers please

Our couriers do their best to deliver and often have amazing local knowledge, but in the event of difficulties a reliable telephone number for the recipient makes all the difference and is a required piece of information. A mobile number is usually best.

Track your order

When we dispatch your order, we send on a tracking code so that you can follow your order in transit on the courier's website.

Delivery outside Ireland

If you need delivery to Northern Ireland, please get in touch for availability and rates. Unfortunately, we do not send wine overseas because of the complicated bureaucratic requirements and very high cost.

Returns

Faulty bottles

Wine is a natural product: its variety is what makes it so interesting!

Sometimes, though, a faulty bottle turns up. It's rare, but it does happen.

We want you to enjoy the wines you buy from us, and we'd like you to enjoy doing business with us too.

If you are unlucky enough to receive a bad bottle, please let us know immediately by calling the office on 021 431 6000 and we'll issue a credit in compensation.

Broken or Damaged Deliveries

Despite our best efforts to wrap and pack securely, damage in transit occurs from time to time.

If there's a breakage, our couriers will normally return the whole fragrant mess to us straight away.

If, however, the damage isn't apparent until you open the box, we'd still prefer to have the whole parcel collected. We'll send you a replacement as soon as possible.
