CHATEAU SAINTE-MARIE MADLYS x2
Entre-Deux Mers AOC, Bordeaux
Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Sauvignon Gris
On the nose there are subtle hints of peach and mango, with white flower and citrus aromas. Fresh yet multi-layered on the palate; there is a discreet oak influence with bountiful fruit flavours. Deliciously elegant and easy to drink.
CHATEAU DE NANCELLE x2
Macon Villages AOC, France
"A Chardonnay with all the lively acidity of Burgundy, the very antithesis of the over-oaked, over-ripe stuff from the New World that got the grape a bad name. Elegant, crisp, fresh with a hint of honey but very dry. A proper white wine for food."
Tom Doorley, The Mail on Sunday
MAS LAS CABES x2
Cotes Catalanes AOC, France
Grenache Blanc, Vermentino, Macabeu, Muscat
Fine scents of white flowers and lemon zest with typical light, fresh flavours, as well as a whisper of limey tang. Gorgeous.
CHATEAU LA BARONNE - LES CHEMINS x2
Carignan, Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre
Intense flavours of fresh blackberry, cherry and cocoa. There is a hint of heat, not like that from alcohol, but rather from white pepper. Superb weight and balance from a renowned organic vineyard.
DOMAINE DES TERRES DOREES L'ANCIEN x2
Beaujolais AOC, France
"No basic Beaujolais here. Cherry and violet aromas, a plummy palate and a pepper finish."
Martin Moran (MW), The Sunday Times
CHATEAU HAU RIAN x2
Bordeaux AOC, France
Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc
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.
Wine; it’s not just another drink. It’s about people. It’s about places. It’s a melting pot of history and culture. And most of all, it’s about pleasure.
