Buis d’Aps is located in Alba La Romaine. The Pinot Noir is grown here south-facing hillsides with very good sun exposure in shallow clay-limestone soils akin to the terroir of Burgundy.

This wine is the result of a rigorous work: limited yields (50hl/ha), thinning at the beginning of the summer and exclusively manual harvesting. After a long maceration lasting 2 to 3 weeks, part of the harvest is aged in oak barrels.

Aromas of ripe fruits, especially cherry, with hints of spices. An elegant wine of great character with silky tannins and slight oaky notes. Open the bottle one hour before drinking to allow the aromas to express themselves.

Vignerons Ardechois – is a co-operative situated near Ruoms on the right bank of the Rhone. Formed over 30 years ago it has bought together 23 smaller co-operatives from 23 villages. It is the largest single wine producer in the Rhone, representing 3,000 growers with 8,500 ha of vineyards. Annual production is over 500,000 hectolitres – mainly varietal IGP Ardeche (formally Vin de Pays des Coteaux de l’Ardeche) but also AOC wines of Cotes du Rhone, Coteaux du Tricastin and Cotes du Vivarias. EU funding and a growing awareness of modern vinification techniques have encouraged the Co-ops to invest in state of the art technology, actions from which they have clearly benefitted.

An example of wine for the proverb, ‘unity is strength’

Due to high demand we've temporarily increased our standard delivery fee to £12.50 for orders under £75 - orders over £75 still come with free delivery!

We are also no longer able to guarantee “Express" next day delivery. We hope to have this back up and running as soon as possible but in the meantime, our deliveries will take a little longer than usual (roughly 2-3 days).

These lovely wines and gifts are stored in our cellar in Clapham, ready for immediate dispatch (and drinking)! If we have less than 12 bottles, the display will show the number available today. If you’d like more than the number shown, or it’s shown as ‘Out of Stock’ / ‘Email to order’, just call us or drop us an email to confirm your order and delivery schedule, as our winemakers send us fresh stocks frequently.
