The Dissenter's All White Case - 6 bottles


With the arrival of the gorgeous "Cassandre, a Vermentino, no less, I've put together four different white wines from the increasingly popular Dissenters range.
Maison Ventenac, a young and dynamic project based in the vineyards of the Ramé family in Cabardès, just north of the city of Carcassonne, are doing great things at the moment.

As with the other wines from The Dissenters range, the Ramé family maintain their best vineyard sites in a caring, sustainable manner. Organic viticulture, indigenous yeasts, a respect for biodiversity, with minimum addition of sulfites, and not too much in the way of oak influence.

We really love and admire the up front and no nonsense messaging in their Dissenters range and their reds have a purity, balance, and simplicity that can be hard to find at this price point. It reflects the Ramé family's pushing the boundaries to find ways to express their interpretation of the land.

In this case, we have four whites, doubling up with Carole & Marie. 

Carole (2 bottles). A brilliant southern French white that shows how well the Chardonnay grape can perform in a maritime climate. Freshness balanced by ripeness gives this wine a tension and lively mouthfeel to match the familiar yellow fruit flavours of Chardonnay.

Marie (2 bottles).  Bright, floral, fresh and full of simple joy, it is a balanced wine that you can imagine with every casserole, pâté, baguette, onion soup or escargot that you've ever had (or imagined). An atypical blend, it is citrus fresh with notes of apple and grapefruit over what is essentially a simple but delicious palate. 

Préjugés (1 bottle). Olivier found that he didn't like barrel aged white wines, one his prejudices. So he set out to prove himself wrong. Or right... This is fresh, mineral and crisp Chardonnay that is a superb balance of place and winemaking, marrying maritime influences with Burgundian winemaking practices.

Cassandre (1 bottle). A delicious white made from the ultra-trendy Vermentino grape variety, showing freshness, texture and depth of flavour in a really classy and delicious glass of sunshine! Flavours of white peach, lime peel, orange blossom, it has a mouth filling palate that is balanced by a lovely fresh tension.

Amazing service from the get go!
I emailed Chris looking for wine recommendations for a birthday gift. Got a really speedy, helpful reply and not only that but he hand delivered it on time to the birthday girl wishing her a happy birthday. Absolutely bowled over by the service. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Could not recommend The Allotment enough. The selection is fantastic and each wine that I've drank from them has been utterly phenomenal. Delivery was no hassle and I had the wine at my door in 2 days. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

A great experience ordering from The Allotment Wine Company. A wide variety of wines to try something new and at good prices with super quick delivery! Really convenient too as opposed to trying to find parking!

Delicious and interesting range of wines delivered promptly to my door. Not far off that lovely feeling of coming back laden from a good wine store but without any of the traffic or the worry of breaking the wine en route (very impressive travel wrap).
