Château Beauchene Châteauneuf-du-Pape  Homage Odette Bernard  2009 <br>(Rhône Valley, France)

Château Beauchene Châteauneuf-du-Pape "Homage Odette Bernard" 2009
(Rhône Valley, France)


A historic Château in the Southern Rhône, located just to the south of Orange and owned by the Bernard family, Château Beauchêne farm 80 hectares of vines split between Châteauneuf du Pape, Côtes du Rhône Villages and Côtes du Rhône. Michel & Dominique Bernard run the Château with the help of their daughter Amandine and a team of six others in the winery and vineyards.

Château Beauchêne have their Châteauneuf du Pape vineyards in the Mont-Redon and Courthézon sector of Châteauneuf du Pape, situated towards the north of the appellation on a distinct plateau. Here, the galet roulé boulders are at their most apparent and the vines are at their most exposed to the Mistral wind. This geographical situation tends to produce the Châteauneuf du Pape wines with the highest proportion of Grenache, due to its affinity with heat, wind and the low water table found on the plateau.

The Beauchêne Châteauneuf du Pape is no exception to this general rule – up to 85% Grenache from vines planted in 1905. Syrah and Mourvédre make up the rest of the blend, with a slightly higher proportion of the earlier ripening Syrah used to Mourvédre, as Mourvédre can struggle in some years that have continuously cold Mistral winds. The wine is aged both in foudres (large old oak barrels) and newer, smaller oak barriques for around a year before bottling. This early bottle date for Châteauneuf du Pape tends to capture a dynamically powerful young wine and consequently, "Hommage Odette Bernard" is highly age-able.

Château de Vimières 2006 <br> (Haut-Médoc, Bordeaux, France)

Château de Vimières 2006
(Haut-Médoc, Bordeaux, France)


Vimières is famous for not wanting to be famous! Owned and run by Jacques and Eric Boissenot this small property in the Northern Médoc is much sought after by those in the know. Not because of it having any great status itself but because of the Boissenots. Painfully discrete to the point of anonymity the Boissenots are the consultants for the ‘Left Bank’ and you can be pretty much assured that if any Médoc winery got the nod in the 1855 classification the Boissenots will be playing a part in it today. Their 180 clients include Latour (since 2000), Lafite (since 1967), Margaux (since 1985), Mouton-Rothschild etc etc.

This being the Boissenots own property they don’t want it to overshadow any of their clients so they do their best to hide it from journalists politely asking them not to give it public reviews!

Manso de Velasco Viejas Vinas Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 <br> (Curico, Chile)

Manso de Velasco Viejas Vinas Cabernet Sauvignon 2007
(Curico, Chile)


A single vineyard, single varietal wine - the Torres’ Manso de Velasco vineyard is entirely planted with Cabernet Sauvignon. Situated in Chile’s Curicó Valley, about three hours drive south of Santiago, the Manso vineyard produces a typically full-bodied Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon.

The Viejas Vinas (Old Vines) wording on this bottle is a serious understatement. The vines are 110 years old and are protected as a national monument! The age of these wines mean they produce just a tiny quantity of top quality fruit.

Cabernet Sauvignon thrives in Chilean growing conditions, benefitting from the on average extra 50 days of growing season that Chile enjoys over Europe. For the late ripening Cabernet Sauvignon, this aids the ripening of tannins and acidity, which can be fierce in under-ripe Cabernet. Chile’s naturally cool temperatures overnight help retain real intensity of fruit flavour and a shockingly deep, almost black colour. Manso de Velasco displays all these hallmarks and is further proof that Cabernet Sauvignon is more often Chile’s most successful grape variety for great quality wine.

Les Giraudels de Milon 2005/9 <br> (Bordeaux, France)

Les Giraudels de Milon 2005/9
(Bordeaux, France)


A classic St-Emilion grand cru, with a blend of 75% Merlot and the remainder split equally between Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Milon is located near the old church of St. Christophe-des-Bardes, on the St. Emilion plateau – so closer to Pomerol – and with a typical St-Emilion plateau soil type of gravel and clay for its vineyards. The wine is aged for around for 15 to 18 months in oak, with a high proportion of new oak within that, yet like most St-Emilion grand cru of this level, it can be drunk young due to the softer proportion of Merlot.

Price: £29.99

Pangea Syrah 2009 <br> (Chile)

Pangea Syrah 2009


Made by John Duval (previously of Penfolds Grange – Australia’s most expensive red) this is regarded as Chile’s best Syrah. The Grange vineyards are on similar red clay soil; and here Duval has created a big, heavy red with loads of herby blue fruit, black pepper and spice aromas. These develop into complex vanilla and dark chocolate flavours on the palate. Best decanted.

Morey-Saint-Denis 2007, Domaine Alain Michelot<br>(Burgundy, France)

Morey-Saint-Denis 2007, Domaine Alain Michelot
(Burgundy, France)


A robust, game-y, savoury and meaty Burgundy from the northern Côte de Nuits, made by the father and daughter team of Alain and Elodie Michelot. Morey-Saint-Denis is lesser known than its two neighbouring villages – Chambolle-Musigny to the south and Gevrey-Chambertin to the north – but makes equally good wines, particularly as food matches with classic Burgundian dishes like Boeuf Bourguignon and Coq au Vin. Alain and Elodie are one of the defiantly old-fashioned and traditional domaines of the Côte de Nuits, so would likely roll over and expire if anyone suggested drinking their wine without food. A great Sunday roast wine.

Montes Alpha Purple Angel 2011 <br>(Colchagua Valley, Chile)

Montes Alpha Purple Angel 2011
(Colchagua Valley, Chile)


"Intense youthful purple colour. Delicate with hints of chocolate and cigar box aromas. Some Petit Verdot (from Apalta) adds structure and at the same time the wildness of blackberries. This wine is full bodied, with a considerable amount of ripe tannins giving grip and structure. Mouth filling with a very long finish. A super wine! Best decanted at least an hour in advance." Winemakers notes.

Serve with roast llama at family feasts or cellar for as long as you like.

Chateau Mongravey 2010 <br> (Bordeaux, France)

Chateau Mongravey 2010
(Bordeaux, France)


There is an absoutely classic Margaux profile to this wine; light yet intense red fruit flavours with a violet perfume note. The oak and fruit are well integrated and there is a fine, dry, long finish. Where this wine stands out from the crowd however, is in its balance - light yet structured, fruity yet mineral, this is truly outstanding wine.

Price: £34.99

Domaine Roblet-Monnot, ‘Saint François’ Volnay 2008 <br> (Burgundy, France)

Domaine Roblet-Monnot, ‘Saint François’ Volnay 2008
(Burgundy, France)


Absolutely top notch red Burgundy, demonstrating just how good this appellation is. Concentrated ripe strawberry and a touch of sweet spice on the nose invite you in to a rich and juicy red fruit filled palate. Beautifully balanced structure, lovely complex flavour characteristics and an intensity of flavour that will leave you in awe!

Frederic Magnien, Gevrey-Chambertin V.V. 2010<br>(Burgundy, France)

Frederic Magnien, Gevrey-Chambertin V.V. 2010
(Burgundy, France)


Frédéric Magnien is the winemaker at this 5 hectare family domaine in Morey-Saint-Denis. He is also the winemaker for his burgeoning high-end négociant business, set up in 1995, and now handling some 500 barrels a year. His grapes are sourced from local Côte de Nuits colleagues, who share the same outlook as Frédéric – farming old vines organically (and often bio-dynamically) to produce naturally low yields.

This Gevrey-Chambertin is an example of Frédéric’s grape sourcing expertise and is made with hand-picked, hand-sorted and de-stemmed grapes, with 12 months’ élevage in oak barrels before being bottled un-fined and un-filtered. A robust, rich and full-blooded style of Gevrey-Chambertin, this is drinkable now with game and red meats, yet will also cellar for at least a further five years.
