In the case: 1 bottle x each of the following:
Chateau Puech Haut – Prestige Rose 2018
Grape Varietals: 60% Grenache, 40% Cinsault
Notes: Pretty, vibrant notes of white peach, white flowers, and salty minerality all emerge from the 2018 Prestige Rosé. Made in a crisp, elegant style, it stays balanced and layered on the palate, and is going to be an incredibly versatile rosé to drink over the coming 6-12 months.
Brunel de La Gardine – Côtes-du-Rhône Blanc 2018
Region: Southern Rhône
Grape Varietals: 30% Rousanne, 20% Clairette, 20% Viognier, 20% Grenache Blanc, 10% Bourboulanc
Notes: A spectacular looking bottle that delivers before you pop the cork. Bright pale yellow in colour with a very citrusy nose of lemon and grapefruit. This wine has a fresh and mineral palate – if you close your eyes you could be conned into thinking this was a more expensive white Chateauneuf!
Macon Lugny Domaine Rochebin 2018
Grape Varietals: 100% Chardonnay
Notes: This extraordinary Chardonnay has been fermented and matured in concrete tanks to preserve the natural peach, apple and pear aromas. An indulgent and extremely fresh wine which is soft yet rich on the palate. Flavours of peach and melon blend together to provide a well-rounded taste. A fresh acidity adds to the rounded of the palate. The floral and citrus aromas combine with a hint of butter on the finish to enhance this delicious wine.
Brunel de La Gardine – Côtes-du-Rhône Rouge 2017
Region: Southern Rhône
Grape Varietals: 65% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 15% Mourvedre
Notes: Garnet red in colour with a bright violet rim. A nose that is typical of the region – red fruit, earthy notes and sweet spice. Juicy, supple and balanced on the palate – a wine that will certainly please all crowds.
Chateau La Tuilerie du Puy Bordeaux Superior Tradition 2014
Region: Entre-Deux-Mers / Bordeaux
Grape Varietals: 41% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc
Notes: 2014 is a classic year from Bordeaux and we believe this is the best drinking claret we have had from them. The colour is deep red with hints of cherry. Expressive nose offering notes of cherry, blackberry and cassis.
Clos Baste Madiran Tradition 2011
Region: Madiran / South West France
Grape Varietals: 100% Tannat
Notes: Clos Baste makes traditional style Tannat wines, with dark smoky fruit, heavy and dense in texture, tannic underpinning and some rusticity showing through. Perhaps a touch smoky, with dried cherry, its more massive and monolithic character would suit most meat or game dishes.
