Ged Sales Assistant
After a long career in IT, while being a part time wine tutor, I decided wine was more interesting than IT. So for the last 7 years I've just done wine stuff, mainly in English vineyards, I love talking about wine, and I love Italian wine (especially whites from the south), Languedoc, Bordeaux and Pinot Noir.
Margot Sales Assistant
I've recently joined Majestic after coming back from Australia, where I worked both in wine and education. I have a love of French wines in particular and also Australian wines. Semillon and Riesling from down under, I see as unsung heroes. I will continue my passion of travelling to world wine regions.
Martin Manager
I've been with Majestic for 5 years now, and have worked in Colchester, Ipswich and here in Braintree. I was Assistant Manager here 3 years ago and am loving getting to know everyone again. My favourite wines are big Aussie Shiraz and classic old world whites! Outside of work my main interest is surfing, so if I bore you with a surfing story I apologise in advance!
Saffron Assistant Manager
I have always enjoyed wine but it wasn't until I completed my WSET that my passion took off. I love red Rioja and enjoy anything from Greek whites to New Zealand Pinot Noir!

Looking for some BBQ inspiration or summer garden drinks? Until June 21st some of our ‘Perfect Drinks for Summer’ are on offer.

Here are our highly recommended,

The fizz:
Graham Beck Brut NV, South Africa
£12.99 mix six or £16.99 single bottle price

You’ll be in good company when you uncork a bottle of this Brut. It’s affectionately known as the ‘President’s Choice’ because it was served at both Nelson Mandela’s inauguration and Barack Obama’s presidential win. It’s made with the Méthode Cap Classique – a style identical to the traditional method used to make Champagne, using Chardonnay and Pinot Noir too. Fresh but creamy. Full of limey citrus flavours with a great brioche richness.

The white wine:
Picpoul Villemarin, France
£7.49 mix six or £9.99 single bottle price

Mouth-wateringly crisp and refreshing, from Picpoul de Pinet AOC, a protected area in the Languedoc which is absolutely perfect for the grape. You can really taste the sun-baked Mediterranean in this wine – its flavours are sun-ripened and as fresh as the breezes that ruffle the lagoon. It’s incredibly zesty and lemony. If you love crisp whites like Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio, then this is an absolute must try. It’s great with seafood, but it’s also especially good with rich cheese.

The red wine:

Jim Barry Lodge Hill Shiraz, Australia
£9.99 mix six or £15.99 single bottle price

The first qualified winemaker to move to the Clare Valley, the late Jim Barry's estate now totals over 200 hectares in this superb wine-growing region. The Lodge Hill site was originally meant for Riesling, but instead was chosen to make this premium, reserved Shiraz. The inky blackcurrant and boysenberry fruit is lifted by violet and menthol notes, with smooth tannins still providing plenty of grip. The finish is long and rich, the perfect pairing for grilled meat.

We hope you all had a lovely Bank Holiday weekend! To celebrate the beautiful hot & sunny weather we have 25% off Champagne and  sparkling wines. Until June 7th.

Our top picks for Champagne have to be these two new-in & delicious Champagnes...

Piper Heidsieck Cuvee Brut NV
Mix six price £24.99 / £39.99 single bottle price

Piper Heidsieck is the most awarded Champagne house of the century. Over its 235-year history, it's been the choice of 14 royal courts. And today, a cork of its fantastic fizz pops every eight seconds. This signature Brut is made by a head winemaker who's been named Sparkling Winemaker of the Year eight times at the International Wine Challenge. It has notes of toasted brioche, almond, yellow plum, nectarine and ginger. Wine Spectator gave it 96 points.

Piper-Heidsieck Rosé Sauvage Champagne
Mix six price £34.99 / £49.99 single bottle price

This Pinot Noir-dominated rosé Champagne is made by a head winemaker who's been named Sparkling Winemaker of the Year eight times at the International Wine Challenge. It has juicy, fresh flavours of peach and raspberry, and hints of toasted brioche. Wine Spectator gave it 92 points.

Our offers on selected Rosé wines continue this week, until monday 31st May, with 25% off selected bottles.

To celebrate we are cracking open the following two, delicious, Rosé wines on our tasting counter this week;

The Palm, by Whispering Angel
Mix Six: £14.24 (single bottle, £18.99)

Well known as the Whispering Angels, ‘younger sister’ the Palm is a delicious way to taste the brilliance of Château d'Esclans and its head winemaker, Sacha Lichine, who Jancis Robinson MW called the golden boy of rosé, at less than the usual asking price. Its crisp notes of watermelon, summer berries and pink blossom are lined by a refreshing minerality.

Santa Tresa, Organic Sicilian Rosé
Mix six: £8.99 (single bottle £12.99)

With abundant sunshine, rare rainfall, cooling sea breezes and volcanic soils, Sicily is the perfect spot for the award-winning, 17th-century Santa Tresa winery to make this organic rosé in. A blend of Nero D'Avola and Frappato, this is a flurry of fresh red fruits with a lively, refreshing acidity.

This week we are celebrating Californian wines, with savings of up to 25%!

Our top choice has to be the Au Bon Climat Chardonnay from Santa Barba which is just £19.99 mix six (or £27.99 single bottle price).

"Jim Clendenen sees Burgundy as the benchmark for Chardonnay. What he makes is a real rebuttal to what you might expect from California. It's aged in French oak, more discreet and delicious. As a result, his Au Bon Climat winery has won universal praise since 1982. This has flavours of lemon, lime, vanilla and oak spice. Serve lightly chilled with shellfish”

Overall an outstanding example of a new world Burgundy-esque styled Chardonnay.

Offers end Monday 17th May.

One that has really caught our eye is the Greek Xinomavro 2018, recommended by our buyer and Master of Wine, Beth. “Xinomavro is like a delicious cross between Barbaresco and Pinot Noir. This one is made by a man who’s highly recognised as an expert in art. It’s medium-bodied and complex with notes of red and black fruit, a vibrant acidity and a long finish.”

Bursting with red cherries, red plum and blackberries with earthy undertones.

This week why not pop in and 'Discover France' with savings up to 33% over a wide range of wines. Stock up on your favourites or try something new!

We recommend trying both the Edouard Delaunay Septembre Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. One half of the Abbotts & Delaunay powerhouse, Laurent Delaunay, has returned to Burgundy to make modern-day wines and resurrect his family estate. We think these are fantastic wines and certainly not ones to be missed.  

The Septembre Pinot Noir boasts all the elegance and subtlety that you'd expect from the best expressions of Pinot Noir alongside a balance and freshness of red fruit.

The Chardonnay is excellently indulgent. Barrel-ageing and stirring on texture-building lees produces delicious wines which are balanced with all the richness you’d expect from these techniques with great acidity and fresh stone fruit character. Expect notes of butter, vanilla and almonds with expressive white peach and apricots.

Septembre Pinot Noir is  £12.99, Mix Six (or £16.99 single bottle price)
Septembre Chardonnay is 10.99, Mix Six (or £14.99 single bottle price)

This offer ends on Monday 19th April.

Let’s talk about our 50th addition to the Parcel Series Range!

Sonoma Coast, Pinot Noir USA.

Tasting note:
Nose - violet/rose,  redcurrant, ripe cherries,
Palate - raspberries, redcurrant, cherries, slight earthiness, vanilla, clove

We currently have 25% off selected South African wines,until Monday 15th March. So while the sun, hopefully, stays out, pour a glass of something good this weekend!

Here are a couple of our Top Picks:

The Creation Chardonnay is not to be missed. Grown in the cool climates and at high altitudes of Hemel-en-Aarde, the wine boasts great acidity and fresh white peach flavours, while lees-stirring create a soft buttery-ness and fantastic mouthfeel. At only £10.99 (Mix six), this is worth trying if you like New World Chardonnay.

The Chocolate Block, made by Mark Kent and named as South Africas 'Winery of the Year 2020’ is definitely a firm favourite of ours. Made from a blend of Syrah, Grenache, Cinsault, Cabernet Sauvignon, with a touch of Viongier. Bold, ripe black fruit notes of blackberry and currant, to name a couple, balance perfectly with a smooth, dark-chocolate silky mouthfeel (hence the name!). Pair with red meat dishes for a match made in heaven. Only £19.99 (Mix Six).
