2012 G. BOULAY Sancerre ‘Les Monts Damnes’ (2 bottles)
White | Dry | Citrus Fruit | Flint
Arguably the best white wine in the Loire and only just hitting running speed. Breathtaking purity as well as finesse.
2014 DOMAINE GOUGES Nuits-St-Georges (2 bottles)
Red | Medium-bodied | Red Fruit | Mineral
Textbook NSG from the village’s most iconic grower. Slightly more red fruit in this vintage, cherry and cranberry to be precise but darker, mineral tones on the finish which recall black tea. Cerebral Burgundy at its finest.
2012 PHELPS CREEK ‘Alexandrine’ Oregon Pinot (2 bottles)
Red | Full-bodied | Dark Fruit | Luxurious
An altogether different Pinot expression made in Oregon by a Burgundian! Simply brilliant; rich, ripe and supremely complex – grand cru calibre without question.
