  • Château d’Or et de Gueules “Mon fut c’est du poulet?”

    Diane’s husband, Matthieu, demonstrates both his fine winemaking skills as well as his sense of humour with this wine. Are you sitting comfortably? Then I’ll begin;
    Matthieu devised a special cuvee, just one barrel, to mark the birth of his baby five years ago. Whist he was away on business one day, Diane unwittingly blended the barrel together with others destined to be the Trassegum Red final blend.
    “Your’e kidding me?!!” said Matthieu on learning his barrel was gone. Translated from “Mon cul, c’est du poulet?” in French. In order not to offend sensitivities he replaced the vulgar “cul” (arse) with “fut” (barrel), and so the fith vintage of this birthday wine is Matthieu’s finest so far in his opinion. Lovely sort, round, fleshy Syrah with easy oak undertones.

  • Felline Primitivo di Manduria

    Based on the huge popularity of “Fellone” I thought we should have a closer look at the Primitivo grape. Here’s one of four more, each with a distinct “terroir”. What’s the Italian for “terroir”, I wonder? This one is distinctive due to the red soil of the vineyards. Aged for six months in French oak.

  • Château d’Or et de Gueules ‘Trassegum’ Red

    Previous vintges recommended by Jancis Robinson: “Brilliant fruit, fine tannins…..serious build and potential.”

    Selected from the best parts of the vineyard, this is a blend of Syrah, Carignan and Mourverdre. Each varietal is kept apart and aged in 500 litre oak barrels for 12 months. Only then do they decide upon the final blend. Once made, the finished wine is aged for yet another 12 months in those same barrels before bottling. Only 10% of the barrels are new wood, so there’s no “in your face ” oakiness here!
    Diane only releases this wine if she feels it is up to her highest standards of quality. So, no 2002 vintage ‘ it was all sold off in bulk to the ‘négociants’. The 2003 vintage was a cracker. No 2004 vintage either; that, too, was not good enough, the 2005, 2007 and 2009s brilliant…as was the 2011.
    And then along came the equally scrumptious 2103, now the fab 2015. What more can I say? Drink now to 2026 (really!)

  • Brunelli Ripasso “Pa’Riondo”

    The Ripasso technique; After the Amarone has finished fermenting its already air-dried and concentrated grapes, the skins are removed from the juice and added to another Valpolicella and these yeast-rich grape skins and sugars get going again in the new wine. (They “re-pass” the skins “Ripasso”)

    This results in the wine becoming full-bodied, with a great concentration of colour and perfume. Corvina Veronese 65%, Rondinella 25%, Corvinone 10%.

  • “The Inspector General” from The Treaty Port Estate China

    From a vineyard established in 2005 on the Shandong peninsula by Chris Ruffle comes this classic Bordeaux blend, aged in french oak barrels and displaying ripe, dark fruits and a hint of vanilla oak. No surprise that Chateau Lafite chose to make their first Chinese wine, Long Dai 2017, from neigbouring fields! Chris’s vines are older, of course, and 2014 was an excellent vintage. This is a limited release of 5000 bottles.
