About The Grape House Introduction by Katy Lavanant, Managing Director

Dear wine enthusiast, I am pleased to introduce you to the very first Grape House wine portfolio. I have personally tasted and chosen each and every wine that features in this brochure, spending hours researching winemakers from all over the world and securing wines that are often difficult to buy because of the fame of their producer. I have listed a variety of wines at all prices and, no, not just from France, my home country! Finding a good wine at a relatively moderate price is a true challenge these days. Did you know that the States of Jersey charge ÂŁ1.1231 duty per 75cl bottle of wine and how much would you say freight to Jersey costs ? Well, 50p per bottle is about right. This alone represents 30% of the cost of a ÂŁ5 bottle of wine. The current Euro exchange rate is still well below what it was only a couple of years ago, making wines from the Euro zone less affordable than in the past and of course we have seen the introduction of GST last year. Quality comes at a price of course, but I can assure you that all of the Grape House wine selection will give you value and pleasure for your money.

To order please ring Katy on 07797 757 068 or email her at katy@theboathousegroup.com


I have been travelling across the vineyards for the last 18 years, which is how long I have been in the wine business. I lived and worked in Bordeaux for 2 years, this is actually where my wine career started, having studied wine, I got a job at Château Prieuré lichine in Margaux and on my days off, I was visiting other Châteaux and tasting their wines. I lived in Burgundy too and this is possibly the vineyard I am the most passionate about. The small villages of the Côtes de Beaune and the Côtes de Nuits are home to some of the worlds true iconic wine gems. Winemaking techniques have evolved a lot in the last decade resulting in an improvement in the quality of entry level wines. In the vines, attention to the soils is more important than ever, viticulturists are conscious of the damages made to the soils due to the extensive use of fertilizers and pesticides in the past and are now using alternative techniques, some even turning their Domaine to biodynamie and producing wines that are truly organic. Outside of Europe, I am finding more and more exceptional wines, I am highly enthusiastic about South Africa, which now ranks fourth in the UK wine market share. When South African wines first appeared in the UK, they were high volume, inexpensive wines, the country is now recognized as a producer of quality premium wines with distinct regional diversity. The explosion of Sauvignon Blanc in New Zealand resulted in the country responding by tripling the vineyard plantings in the last 10 years and Pinot Noir is now on the Sauvignon's heels, but boutique estates still produce stunning examples of both. The Grape House is part of The Boat House Group and adheres to the same philosophy. I hope you like the new list,

Katy

Billecart-Salmon, Mareuil sur Ay, Champagne

Winemaker - François Billecart History Billecart-Salmon is one of the few remaining Champagne houses to be owned by the original family and was established in 1818 by Nicolas-Francois Billecart. Most of Billecart-Salmon's fruit comes from a small vineyard holding, though this is supplemented with grapes bought in from around Epernay. Meticulous production techniques from the use of their own cultured yeasts to its slow, long, cool fermentation, ensure that the family has 100% control of the production. Billecart-Salmon is renowned for the quality of its delicate Rosé, it is a romantic Champagne. The production secrets of this cuvée go back to the origins of the house of Billecart-Salmon. It is a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. It has a pale salmon colour adorned with warm glints of gold and delicate bubbles. The Brut Réserve is harmonious and balanced, light and fine. It is also a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier from 3 vintages sourced from the best sites in the Champagne region. Wines

Domaine Serge Laloue, Sancerre

Winemaker Serge and Franck Laloue History Sancerre is situated 200km South of Paris on a hill. The whole Vineyard of Sancerre represents around 2800 hectares on the West bank of the Loire river. The estate was founded in 1930 by Francois and Simone Laloue who were farmers. In 1960, their son Serge came to work on the farm and focused on viticulture and in turn, his son Franck joined him in 1990. The family run business is located in the village of Thauvenay, which is one of the 14 villages included in the Sancerre AOC. It covers 20 hectares of vines, 15 of which are dedicated to the production of Sauvignon Blanc for Sancerre Blanc and and 5 hectares are dedicated to the production of Sancerre Rouge and Rosé. In the vineyard, chemical treatments are kept to a strict minimum as the estate has adopted the " lutte raisonnée" method, for example, grass is grown in between the vine rows. The yield is also strictly controlled through pruning and disbudding. The grapes are harvested mechanically but with great care and as gently as possible. The juice is fermented in stainless steel vats and left on its lees for 3 to 4 months to optimise structure and complexity. Domaine Serge Laloue is the rising star of Sancerre. Wines

Domaine Antoine Simoneau,Touraine

Winemaker - Antoine Simoneau History The history of the Simoneau family as wine producers dates back as far as the French revolution when the family managed to reclaim 1 hectare of vines from the authorities. Located in the heart of the Loire Valley, famous for its many beautiful Châteaux, the estate, which now covers 55 hectares, sits on the gentle slopes of the river Cher. The winemaking techniques used include green harvesting, harvesting at dawn or dusk, when it is coolest, to preserve the delicate aromas of the white grape varieties. The result is a wine intriguingly balanced between the old and new world style. The grape used is Chenin of course, the Loire Valley being its native region. It makes light bodied and aromatic Sparkling wines. Mr Simoneau Touraine Brut is made with a secondary fermentation in the bottle, bubbles are lively and fine, the nose is lemony and biscuity when the mouth is of a wonderful balance. Wines

Domaine Follin-Arbelet, Aloxe Corton

Winemaker - Franck Follin History The Arbelet Family have been linked to the tiny village of Aloxe Corton, situated on the doorstep of Beaune, since the 19th century. They own vines situated on the prime hill site of Corton. Franck Follin is at the helm of the domaine, he is the first member of the family to be fully involved in the domaine production from vine to bottle. His first vintage was 1992. Franck was a geologist but decided to join André Masson, his father in law and former director of the Hospices de Beaune, to put Domaine Follin Arbelet on the map of the best domaines in Burgundy. Franck is a purist in his methods and he lets the wines speak for themselves and, crucially, for their vineyard of origin. Herbicides and pesticides are banned at the domaine, all juices stay in contact with the skin for 3 to 5 days ensuring full extraction and in addition caps are punched down during fermentation for even further extraction. The wines are aged in barrels for at least 15 months. Quality is consistently high here from generic wines to Grand Crus with a particularly fine and sophisticated 1er Cru Vercots. Wines

Domaine Leflaive, Puligny-Montrachet

Winemaker - Anne-Claude Leflaive History The estate was first established in 1717 but Anne-claude took full control in 1993, the domaine now extends to 25 hectares, which by Burgundian standards is a rather good size. Anne-claude is deeply concerned about the irreversible damage caused by the excessive use of fertilizers and pesticides and therefore in 1990 she adopted the biodynamic methods inspired by Rudolf Steiner. This involves using diluted doses of plant based compounds, in time with the seasons and planetary movements to treat the vines and soil. The results were such that the estate became fully biodynamic in 1998. The average age of the vines are 30 years. The domaine produces Bourgogne Blanc, Puligny-Montrachet, Puligny-Montrachet 1er cru Clavoillon, 1er cru Combettes, 1er cru Folatieres, 1er cru Pucelles and Grand cru Batard Montrachet, Bienvenues Batard Montrachet and Montrachet.

Vina Alberdi, Rioja

Winemaker - La Rioja Alta S.A History The history of La Rioja Alta starts in 1890 when 5 Basque and Rioja based wine growers created the company. The Viña Alberdi estate was bought in 1970. Today, the company continues to foster the creative and entrepreneurial spirit of its founders. The ripening process was halted by extreme temperatures and a lack of rainfall in July and August, the 2003 crop required technically demanding procedures aimed at enhancing quality. La Rioja Alta S.A decided on a selective harvest and only the vineyards in the highest areas provided the grapes to produce this Vina Alberdi made of 100% Tempranillo. The wine was aged for 2 years in American oak casks for the first year and in oak of an average of 3 years old for the second year. It was racked four times by hand and by candlelight and finally bottled in January 2007. Bright cherry red colour with a medium robe and light pinkish highlights in the glass. Intense, very fresh aromas with hints of cinnamon, coconut and vanilla. Round and well-bodied to the palate, smooth silky tannins thanks to perfectly ripened grapes and ageing in the cask. Wines Red

Lagar de Cervera, Rias Baixas

Winemaker - La Rioja Alta S.A History In 1988, La Rioja Alta S.A bought the family estate known as Bodega Fernandes Cervera Hermanos and soon changed the name to Lagar de Fornelos S.A. It is a small but welcoming winery situated in the village of Fornelos. It has the capacity to produce 450 000 bottles per year. Its pink ivy-covered facade can be seen from the road, the river Tamuxe flows by the rear of the house and an ancient and impressive old stone and wooden wine press, now a museum piece, symbolises the hard work involved in making wine in the past. The Lagar de Cervera Albariño in the Rias Baixas Denominación of Origen covers 77 hectares. The grapes are picked by hand and deposited in 20kg crates, they are then taken in refrigerated vehicles to the winery where grapes are immediately destemmed for pressing. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats at a low temperature. The wine then goes through a partial malolactic fermentation seeking a balance between acidity and alcohol content. The wine is bright and pale yellow. The bouquet is typical of the Albariño variety, fresh, balanced and structured to the palate. It is best served at 10* to 12* degrees. Wines White

Borthwick Estate, Wairarapa

Winemaker - Paddy Borthwick History Paddy has seven years of international winemaking experience in France, Switzerland, Australia and the United States. Upon his return to New Zealand, Paddy spent five years as winemaker in Marlborough, so with 24 vintages under his belt, the obvious next step was to use his passion, skill and experience into developing and producing his own premium wines from the boutique family vineyard. All the fruit used in the Borthwick wines are grown solely on the Borthwick family estate. The Pinot Noir is hand picked and fermented in open top fermenters, temperature controlled and a variety of yeasts both natural and cultured are used. Hand plunging optimizes fruit and tannin balance, with extended maceration on skins. The Pinot Noir is then allowed to age in 40% French new oak for 14 months. The Sauvignon Blanc goes through a cold fermentation, with 25% fermented in oak barrels, the lees are stirred. After 5 month it is assembled, filtered and then bottled. Wines

Although the quest for quality wines is uncompromising, the development of the farm has not been without attention to the environment, with more than half of the farm being left to indigenous vegetation and wildlife. Harmony is central to the philosophy of Mulderbosch, and the emphasis has always been and will always remain on quality at the expense of quantity.

Organic and Biodynamic Wines

The core principles of Organic viticulture is farming without genetically modified organism or synthetic chemicals, fertilizers, pesticides and fungicides, instead producers adopt creative natural methods to enhance soils, vine health and grape quality like- Disruption of pests and integrated pest management Planting beneficial weeds - Introducing animal to graze weeds Biodynamics has the same core principles as organics, no synthetic chemicals or GMO, but uses the following additional techniques recommended by Austrian philosopher Rudolph Steiner in 1924, to encourage sustainable growth in farming. The use of special, natural preparations to improve soil quality and help vines better assimilate nutrients, trace minerals and water for balanced growth namely: 

Horn manure to improve soil vitality

Horn silica to enhance photosynthesis

Plant based compost preparations

Horsetail decoction as anti-fungal

Application of homeopathic amounts of these preparations holistically in accordance with bio-rythms linked to plant growth (depending on lunar cycles, some days are better than others for planting, ploughing or harvesting). Use of locally grown plants for Steiner's preparations.
