  • Domaine Métairie d’Alon “Solaire” Pinot Noir 2015

    Top Pinot Noir made by a Burgundian in the south of France. The part of the vineyard called “Solaire” was identified as best for Pinot Noir, so that’s what they planted there 17 years ago. The vines are mature and producing a remarkable Pinot Noir. dare I say more Nuits St Georges than Cotes de Beaune! The organically grown grapes were hand picked and then aged for nine months in oak barrels.

  • Domaine de la Pigeade Muscat de Beaumes de Venise

    The southern Rhone is probably best known for its reds such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas …..and Vacqueyras. But they also make one of the best dessert wines around and here’s a pretty smart one! Deliciously grapey, fleshy, fragrant Muscat grapes have the fermentation stopped by the addition of alcohol leaving the wine naturally sweet.  The Domaine recommends it be drunk very cold not only as a dessert wine with, say, chocolate fondant but also with blue cheese or even with foie gras  to start with.

  • Abbotts & Delaunay “Cumulo Nimbus” Minervois

    A blend of Syrah, Carignan and Grenache which really showcases one of the Languedoc’s fine range of regional appellations. 40% of the handpicked grapes are aged in oak following fermentation. The result is a fat, structured red but it’s not “in your face” it’s really very nicely balanced.

  • Champagne Marc Chauvet Brut Tradition

    Really! Honestly! Go no farther than Marc Chauvet for your Champagne. If you don’t want to spend £27.50, then try Blanquette de Limoux, but please don’t resort to cheap Champagne!

    To my mind Clotilde’s latest cuvee is her best yet! Soft, full, biscuity and long-lasting (in the palate, that is – I suspect the bottle will be polished off very quickly!)

    o 1/3 each Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier
    o 2/3 2015 vintage, 1/3 reserve wine
    o Dosage 12gms
    o Disgorged in after 3 years sur lattes

    Previous years’ accolades;

    Top 12 Fizzes for Christmas 2012 Daily Telegraph -“”Warm in style, nicely biscuity, with personality but one that will please a variety of tastes. Very box office.”

    A previous cuvee was also in Oz Clarke’s 250 Best Wines of 2011: “a fascinating wine,” and recommended by Victoria Moore in The Daily Telegraph November 2010: “delicious.”

    and recommended in The Guardian May 2010: “impressive.”
