2018 L’HERBE SAINTE Minervois Tradition (2 bottles)
Red | Full-bodied | Dark Fruit | Wild
Don’t be fooled by the lacklustre label, this is simply outstanding, full of dark fruits and mountain herbs. Think Brunello on a budget!
2019 ROCHEMURE Beaujolais Villages (2 bottles)
Red | Light/Medium-bodied | Red Fruit | Classic
This is a summer pudding masterpiece. Despite opening far grander things to cheer us up during lockdown I can't recall a more delicious bottle, it lasted all of twenty minutes.
2016 CH GABELOT Bordeaux (2 bottles)
Red | Medium/Full-bodied | Red Fruit | Classic
Wonderful introduction to the great ’16 Bordeaux vintage, drinking beautifully out of the gates. Predominantly Merlot with a splash of Cabernet.
2019 ROCHEMURE Beaujolais Blanc (6 bottles)
White | Dry | Full-bodied | Stone Fruit
Although 98% of Beaujolais is red, there are a few stunning white wines made, this is one of them. It's 100% Chardonnay, bone dry, and among the best value wines we've ever tasted.
2018 KOEHLER RUPRECHT Dry Riesling (2 bottles)
White | Dry | Exotic Fruits | Mineral
Once described by a critic as 'the Rolls-Royce' of German wine estates. Such clarity and precision; fruit at the more exotic end of the spectrum, with pineapple and camomile complexity coming through. Hailing from the Pfalz region.
2019 RIFFEL Scheurebe Sauvignon (2 bottles)
White | Dry | Exotic Fruits
This wine is full of fruit with a wonderful exotic aroma. A lovely spine of minerality on the palate, this Scheurebe Sauvignon is a perfect match for aromatic or spicy poultry and fish dishes, and a winner with Asian cuisine.
