La Reine de l'Arenite, Fleurie La Madone 2011 (Beaujolais, France)
Perfumed, aromatic and with a notable floral twist of violets. Silky and elegant throughout the palate with an abundance of blackcurrant and red berry fruits.
'Arenite' is the terroir of pinky, crumbly sandstone of the La Madone vineyards, rated as the best vineyard area in Fleurie. The area and chapel at the top of the hill are dedicated to the Virgin Mary as thanks for the village of Fleurie not being invaded during the Franco-Prussian war, the quality coming from the sandy soil here draining more quickly than the surrounding area, lowering the water content of the grapes and in turn producing deeper and more concentrated wines. This combines with the east / south east facing vineyards being vertigo inducingly steep in places which increases the vines exposure to the sun.
In winter match with a roast leg of lamb; during the summer, chill and serve with roast or barbecued chicken or pork.
Quady's Elysium Black Muscat 2010 37.5cl
Elysium in Greek Mythology is paradise. The provocative rose and lychee aroma of Elysium resonate from the Black Muscat grape variety. Elysium can accompany dessert cheeses, such as blues, creams, especially vanilla, red fruit custards, clafoutis, and puddings; as well as chocolate.
Louis Latour Mâcon Lugny "Les Genievres" 2011(Burgundy, France)
Louis Latour's Mâcon Lugny is perhaps one of the best known Mâcons within the UK market. What people do not always realise is that there are two levels of wine produced in this district: The 'plain' Macon-Lugny that tastes of relatively little and the single vineyard wines, like the Macon-Lugny 'Les Genevieres', which are rather more flavoursome.
This is due to Maison Louis Latour rigorously selecting grapes from the the best plots of the already well-exposed commune of Lugny which was the only village planted with Chardonnay 30 years ago due to a perfect terroir. Lugny is one of the top vineyards in southern Burgundy’s Mâconnais region. Stainless steel tank fermented and aged, this is a clean fresh wine with no oak involved.
Mâcon-Lugny “Les Genièvres” is crisp and yet still typically honeyed. The nose unveils aromas of lemon and green orchard fruit with notes of honeycomb. A clean dry, yet quite rich wine full of light lemon citrus and orchard fruits with nutty notes, it has an elegant smoothness with balanced fresh acidity and a lingering dry-almost honeyed finish. A good value quality white Burgundy that is drinking well now.
Wente Morning Fog Chardonnay 2012 (California, USA)
Each summer morning, fog billows inland through the Golden Gate, pushed by Pacific wind streams into the bowl of the San Francisco Bay. Here, it forms deep fog banks that rest on the East Bay Hills. In just one place, the Livermore Valley, with its unique East-West orientation, the fog banks come further east, cooling the air as it goes. This daily phenomenon creates the Mediterranean or Marine climate found in less than 1% of the world’s land mass. And it makes the San Francisco Bay and Livermore Valley appellations ideal for growing wine grapes that are beautifully balanced. This Chardonnay, named Morning Fog, pays homage to this rare climate.
Enjoy aromas and flavours of green apple and tropical fruits, balanced by subtle oak, cinnamon and vanilla from barrel ageing. With a mouth-filling body and balanced acidity, this wine delivers a medium-long, refreshing finish.
Pascal Bellier Cheverny 2012(Loire, France)
A blend of 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Chardonnay. Dry and crystal clear with aromas of citrus and white flowers. Ideal as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to seafood.
"sometimes dismissed as poor man's Sancerre, unfairly in our view, Cheverny is one of the loire's most under-rated appeallations. Pale and elegant, with catty/chalky aromas, taut acidity and a long, refined finish. Delicious stuff!"
Brilliant with goat's cheese like this one http://www.flavourtastings.co.uk/index.php/shop/product/3-chabis-goats
Château Martouret 2007 (Bordeaux, France)
A 45 hectare property planted on the stony, limestone soils around the Commune of Nerigean in the Entre-Deux-Mers. The blend comprises 60% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Cabernet Franc. The average age of the vines is 25 years. The wine is unified in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and then receives 6 monts aging in barriques from the old family property Clos Fourtet.
Domaine du Haut Perron Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2012 (Loire, France)
Grown on a particular soil type know as "perruches" that reduces vine yields and increases concentration of flavour. Typically Sauvignon-esq but with a good deal more "oomph"!
Tabali Pinot Noir 2011 (Chile)
This wine is born from the best vineyards of the Tabali Winery, located at the Limari Valley on the edge of the Enchanted Valley. Legend says that the valley is magical and Tabali wines capture this mysticism. Deep cheery in colour, intense and elegant on the nose with aromas of redcurrant and strawberry. On the palate it has soft tannins, mixed with the toasty hints of 10 months barrel age, making it a rounded wine with good persistency.
Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 (Chile)
Great complexity in the mouth, in mid-palate it is full bodied and balanced with a lasting persistence and a remarkable finish.
Bouchard Père et Fils, AC Bourgogne 2011 (Burgundy, France)
We searched long and hard to find a good quality red Burgundy that we could offer at around a tenner and we finally think we’ve found it. All of the classic hallmarks of Burgundian Pinot Noir are here: ripe red fruit, lovely crunchy acidity, supple tannins and a silky smooth mouthfeel. Drink now and enjoy.
