DOMAINE SERGE LALOUE x2
Sancerre AOC, France
"Substantial, elegant, lovely lime and cox apple fruit with an extended finish."
Ernie Whalley, The Sunday Times
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 PUY CASTERA x2
Haut Medoc AOC, France
Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc
"With a perfume of violets and the characteristic note of pencil shavings, this Bordeaux, from a family-owned estate in the Médoc is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, giving it flavours of blackcurrant leaf and black plum."
Corinna Hardgrave, The Irish Independent
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 SAINT ESTEVE TRADITION x2
Uchaux AOC, France
"Rich velvety smooth plum fruits and an easy rounded finish. Perfect with red meats."
John Wilson, The Irish Times
