Chateau La Croix Cantenac Saint Emilion Grand Cru 2013 Chateau La Croix Cantenac Merlot / Cabernet Sauvignon/ Cabernet Franc, AC, France - Bordeaux 1 x 75cl Bottles The estate is located on the eastern side of the Saint-Emilion plateau, out towards Puisseguin. It is really quite small - just 5.5 ha of vines are planted - but even in such a small area, two distinct soil types are to be found. Some of the parcels consist of clayey limestone, others of gravelly sand, and being able to play with these two different 'ingredients' means that the resulting wine has an impressive level of complexity. The dominance of the Merlot in this blend is very apparent in the nose of the wine, which shows lush cherry notes. In the mouth, the wine is smooth and elegant, with the Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc bringing structure.
Masi Toar Ancient Valpolicella Classico Masi Corvina, Rondinella, Oseleta, DOC, Italy 1 x 75cl Bottles Made from 3 grape varieties, this wine includes, Corvina and Rondinella. What makes it exceptional, is the 10% inclusion of a lost variety, thought to be extinct, called Oseleta. One of the vineyard hands came across one single vine in the vineyard that held small intense berries, and tests proved it was the lostr variety of Oseleta. What this brings to the wine is an intensity of fruit, and a lot of tannin. The name Toar refers to the volcanic soil of the vineyards. Excellent with grilled or roasted meats.
Conde de Valdemar Gran Reserva Rioja Bodegas Valdemar Tempranillo Spain 1 x 75cl Bottles A real Rioja gem - this is a single estate and 100% family owned. The wine is voluptuous and richly fruity with oodles of berry characters and a gentle oakiness in the background.
Champagne Louis Blanc Domaine Louis Blanc Chardonnay / pinot noir / pinot meunier, France - Champagne 1 x 75cl Bottles "There's an aromatic floral note to the flavours of apricot, ripe apple, smoky mineral, kumquat and lemon zest in this firm bubbly, which is fine-grained and balanced, with a lively, moderate finish." - 90 points, Wine Spectator, November 2011.
Croft Late Botted Vintage Port Croft Estate Touriga Nacional Blend, Portugal 1 x 75cl Bottles Fresh vigorous, youthful style with bright ruby colour. Full bodied with good sweet fruit flavours. A delicious port, matured in oak casks and perfect to round off the meal.
Palliser Estate Pinot Noir, Palliser Estate, New Zealand Palliser Estate Pinot Noir, New Zealand 1 x 75cl Bottles Rich and fruity with earthy and vegetal flavours. Will age for a number of years but is well able for early drinking. A real pleasure and one of the classic examples of how well Martinborough can do Pinot Noir.
