Burgundy, Alsace & Rhone

Montagny 1er cru Domaine Alain Roy 2013

Cote Chalonnaise

The wine’s golden greenish hue turns towards a lighter gold during ageing. The bouquet presents an aroma of white flowers and sometimes even dried fruits (apricots). Generally quite vivacious and exuding intense minerality on the palate, this wine still offers very pleasant suppleness that produces a nice finish.

35

Chablis, Domaine des Marronniers, Bernard Legland 2014

Burgundy

This brilliant medium-bodied Chablis has pure aromas and flavours of green apples, lemons and limes, with just a whisper of stony minerality.

7.8 10.9 32

Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume Domaine Vrignaud 2014

Burgundy

Complex and full–bodied, with flavours of apples, pears and citrus fruits. A long finish, with a touch of minerality.

50

La Chablisienne Grand Cru Chateau Les Grenouilles 2011

Chablis

A very luminous and glittering wine. The first aromas of the bouquet form a festival of spiciness: vanilla, cinnamon and pepper that quickly move aside and leave room for suggestions of white flowers. In the mouth the effect is very flattering, the indication of a year of good ripe fruit. Its richness carpets the palate while the spicy fullness satisfies the taste buds. Nevertheless the Chablisienne terroir soon reaffirms itself to take centre stage with a lime-flavoured freshness accompanied by a mineral quality.

82

Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Macherelles Domaine Roux 2013

Cote de Beaune

It boasts firm coloration with green highlights. Aromas of mayflower, acacia, and honeysuckle blend with verbena and hazelnut and in some cases toast or fresh butter. This wine boasts a profound minerality (flint). Age brings in notes of honey or ripe pear. Rounded and often opulent, its attack is instantaneous. On the palate, fleshiness is matched by mellowness, and both are equally persistent.

88

Domaine Marc Morey Chassagne-Montrachet 1er cru Virondot 2011

Cote de Beaune

The Morey family has been located in a C19 coaching inn situated in the village of Chassagne for over 100 years. Today, the 9ha estate is one of Chassagne Montrachets most important and influential, using traditional vinification to create full-bodied, complex and powerful white Burgundy. Chassagne Montrachet from the 1er Cru `En Virondot` vineyard is rich with the aroma of honey, acacia flowers and almonds. It is produced from some of the oldest Chardonnay vines of the domaine. The intensity of the fruit is matched by the wine`s subtle acidity and the roundness of bottle maturity.

90

Meursault Villages Michelot 2014

Cote de Beaune

This wine has nutty, toasty oak adding the depth and richness to the citrus, apple and melon fruit. Finely balanced between opulent richness and purity of fruit.

70

Pouilly Fuisse Domaine Trouillet 2014

Maconnais

This delicate wine has aromas and flavours of grapefruit, peaches, acacia, buttered brioche and a touch of honey. It is very refreshing with a rich mouthfeel.

Hermitage La Chapelle Jaboulet 2005

Northern Rhone

The Wine Enthusiast “A big step up from Jaboulet’s La Petite Chapelle, this is on a par with some of Jaboulet’s past efforts. It’s richly concentrated, yet nuanced, with notes of blood and mineral added to ripe cassis fruit and accented by hints of vanilla and spice. The tannins form an almost creamy texture in the mouth, and the finish lingers a good long time. Drink 2012–2025.”

180

Chateauneuf Du Pape Chateau De Beaucastel 2009

Northern Rhone

This wine is a blend of 30% Mourvedre, 30% Grenache , 10% Syrah, 10% Counoise, 5% Cinsault and the rest a blend of Vaccarese, Terret Noir, Muscardin, Picpoul, Picardan, Bourboulenc, and Roussanne. This vintage is very bright ruby in appearance. A beautiful wine with power, intense aromas

110

Chateau St Cosme Gigondas Hominis Fides 2012

Southern Rhone

Saint Cosme - located north to the village of Gigondas - is the most ancient estate in the region The famous limestony sands left by the Miocène sea are marvelous and enigmatic at the same time. They give to the grenache grape a very special expression, very refined and precise. The 2012 Gigondas Hominis Fides has a masculine, structured and almost burly profile. Underbrush, black raspberry, crushed rock, pepper and black licorice are just some of the notions here and it hits the palate with full-bodied authority and richness.

Chateau Cantenac Brown 2004

Margaux

In 1968 it was sold by the well known Bordelaise, Jean Lawton to the Du Vivier family, then in 1980 to the Cognac house of Remy-Martin and then finally to AXA, the insurance conglomerate. The density of the plantation is 8,500 vines per hectare with plantings of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. Fully mature, this medium bodied wine serves up more secondary notes of tobacco and wet forest floor than red fruit.

100

Chateau Batailley 2007

Pauillac

Named after a ‘bataille’ that was fought here between the French and English (who else) 600 years ago, Batailley has once again lived up to its reputation of offering good value, early drinking, quintessential Pauillac. Made from 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot, its toasty, ripe plum and cedar nose leads on to a palate with vivid cassis and raspberry fruit, creamy vanilla oak and a lovely long finish.

70

Chateau Clinet 1996

Pomerol

Château Clinet is one of the most prestigious estates of the Pomerol wine region, set amongst the finest parcels of this well-known plateau. The saturated plum/purple colour is followed by an aggressively oaky nose with scents of roasted coffee, blackberries, and prunes. It is somewhat of a freak for a 1996 Pomerol given its richness, intensity, and overripe style. Medium-bodied and powerful.

175

Chateau Ormes de Pez 2008

Saint-Estephe

Owned and made by the Cazes family of Lynch Bages, this is a consistently good wine and one of the best of the Crus Bourgeois of Bordeaux. 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc, 39% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot with ageing in 50% new oak. Ormes de Pez is definitely on the rise. Big, structured and mouth-filling with intense dark fruit but with a creamy, raspberry twist. Sweet cassis in the middle and super-ripe tannins.

55

Chateau Gruaud Larose 1989

St-Julien

Robert Parker notes, “The 1989 is a standout wine. It displays wonderful definition on the nose, with hints of sandalwood, Provencal herbs, white fennel and a touch of mint. The palate is medium-bodied and beautifully balanced, demonstrating a tad more composure than the 1990 with good weight on the linear finish. I like the control here, the sense of finesse. Drinking perfectly now.

250

Chateau Talbot 2000

St-Julien

The vineyard area of Chateau Talbot is on fine gravelly rises which are well drained. The distribution of red wine grape varieties is 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot. Wine Spectator - “Beautiful aromas of raspberries, Indian spices, crushed flowers and berries. Full-bodied, with a solid core of ripe fruit and silky tannins. Long and delicious. A very fine and pretty wine. Best Talbot in years.”
