Two stunning wines, one 100% Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire and a Chateauneuf du pape from the Southern Rhone.
Comte Lafonde Sancerre 2018
1 x 75cl
This is a 100% Sauvignon Blanc grown in The Loire Valley in France, fermented in stainless steel tanks with no oak influence.The grapes are grown on chalk soils of Sancerre.
The nose is remarkable, it has tons of fresh grapefruit and lime zest but also has a beautiful mineral edge that makes it such a super food wine.
The palate is mouth watering. Lots of fresh and vibrant flavours mix with an almost saline quality that you only get with the very top Sancerre.
Try this with shellfish or anything with goats cheese.
Chateauneuf_du-Pape La Bernardine 2016
1 x 75cl
Chateauneuf du pape can be an astonishing wine when made by a good producer, and this one is.
Chapoutier is a wine producer very close Irish hearts, its a wine that appears on most most of the best wine lists in the country.
On the nose initially bursts with rich raspberry and plum fruit then comes the herbal notes, the French call this Garrigue. If you've ever been lucky enough to go to the South of France you will notice this beautiful aroma everywhere, it comes from the areas natural scrub land of sage, rosemary and lavender.
On the palate the wine is super silky bursting with raspberry and strawberry fruit and finishing with a sprinkle of white pepper .
Try this with root vegetable casserole or lamb tagine.
