Scott Neville ‘Wines of France’ Collection
Scott Neville is on a considered mission of sourcing excellent wines of great value from across France. He works with producers that often invest so much of themselves in the land that little time is left to share their story and their wines, especially overseas.
Over the years most members of The Local Drop would have enjoyed one of his wines and we are excited to offer this spectacular and unique wine collection for you to purchase.

A family vineyard since 1886 this sparkling wine from Touraine is a blend of Chenin and Chardonnay. Fresh, floral and the perfect aperitif.
2016 Bonnet Huteau Muscadet
Brothers Jean-Jacques and Remi run Domaine Bonnet-Huteau, family owned for over 150 years.

2014 Domaine Paget ‘Opus’ Chenin Blanc
The ‘Opus’ Chenin Blanc is made from select bunches that have optimum ripeness at harvest time; with a little more flavour development built around a typical Chenin acidity. The aroma is rich yet possessing a tangerine peel freshness, the palate has weight and a gorgeous waxy ‘Chenin’ texture, finishing clean and dry.
2015 Domaine Paget ‘Jajavanaise’ Gamay blend
Jajavanaise is a Touraine rouge from one of the region’s most progressive vignerons using organic Gamay, Malbec and Cabernet Franc, each is vinified separately before contributing to the blend. Jajavanaise is made in a fresh, lively style to showcase the approachability of the area and its wines.
