2 x Château Thieuley 2018
Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc - 12.5%

2 x Domaine Jean-Luc Mader 2018
Riesling - 13%
Alsace AOC - France
A dry, refreshing organic Riesling with a zippy palate of green apple and lime and a flinty edge.
2 x Château de Nancelle 2019
Chardonnay - 13%
Mâcon-Villages AOC - France
“Elegant, crisp, fresh with a hint of honey but very dry. A proper white wine for food”
Tom Doorley, The Irish Daily Mail
2 x Château Haut Rian Selection Parcellaire 2016
Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc - 13.5%
Premieres Cotes de Bordeaux AOC - France
Only produced with particularly good vintages, it never fails to live up to expectations. This red wine is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and a touch of Cabernet Franc. It is medium-full bodied, but elegant and smooth with a lovely balance between ripe fruit, hints of oak and fine tannins. Superbly made and perfect with red meats or a strong hard cheese.
2 x Domaine Charavin Rasteau 2019
Carignan, Mourvedre, Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah - 14.5%
Rasteau AOC, France
"In a blind tasting this could easily be taken for a Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Powerful, supple and complex."
Tom Doorley, The Mail on Sunday
2 x Château La Baronne Les Lanes 2018
Carignan, Grenache - 14%
Corbières AOP - France
“A super wine... soft and easy, with gentle spice, good acidity and a real sense of the South of France in its makeup.” John Wilson, The Irish Times
