Discover my selection of unique boutique wines with sustainability at their core.
Refined, with unwavering elegance, this Syrah blend is named after the brilliant and beautiful Héloïse d’Argenteuil for its balance of concentration, restraint and ripe, supple texture. This fine Syrah blends beautifully with the highly perfumed old-vine Grenache but also blossoms with the floral notes of high-altitude white varieties, like Viognier or Roussanne, bringing Héloïse stylistically closer to her cousins in the Northern Rhône.
SERVING SUGGESTIONSHéloïse likes “feathers”, especially goose, duck or turkey with all the trimmings. It also pairs beautifully with lamb or stuffed mushrooms. Decant for several hours, and serve at room temperature or slightly cooler. Ageing potential: 25-30 years.

I created Wine Monkey to bring together a collection of lesser-known craft wines that celebrate sustainability, whether environmental, human, economic and/or social and to support the producers who see and care about the bigger picture.
You name it, I've done it: from marketing and brand management to retail and trade sales, wine tourism, wine education, ecommerce and, most recently sommelier, with several vintages under my belt both in the cellar and in the vineyard.
Having worked my way through the vineyards of southern Oregon, the Loire, the Languedoc, the Rhône and now the UK, I have developed a passion for "unique boutique" wines. Wine Monkey is all about bringing together and showcasing the incredible wines I've collected along the way. Get in touch to let me know what you think of my selection and to share your favorites with me. I'd love to hear from you!
