Champagne Chimere Brut NV
Made by the Rapenau Family, this aperitif style sparkler is light and has delicate bubbles. Expressive fruit and white flower aromas, an elegant and long finish.
Sauvignon 2018, 'Long Bec', Touraine-Chenonceaux
Sancerre beating, fresh and exotic Sauvignon from the Loire. White fruits nose, round and long mouth with quince and apricot notes. Delicious, intense and complex.
Louro do Bolo 2017, Godello, Valdeorras, Rafel Palacios
A true Burgundy-beater, this is one of the benchmark wines against which all Spanish whites are judged. Godello, a grape native to North West Spain, from the Valdeorras region, medium-bodied and very stylish with flavours of white currants, fresh citrus, orange blossom and lots of stony minerality. Superb
Rioja Reserva 2015, Izadi
A cracking modern Rioja, intense aromas of red fruits, liquorice and spices combined with delicate hints of cedar and smoky notes. The full bodied palate is rich and concentrated with a long, fruit-forward finish.
Chateau Labadie 2015, Cru Bourgeois Medoc
Double Gold medal winning Claret from top vintage: fresh and generous, with ripe and fleshy fruit characters, with damson, cassis and spiced plum joined by wild forest fruit, firm acidity and velvety tannins. This Cru Bourgeois punches well above its weight.
Quinta de la Rosa 2014 LBV Port (50cl)
Very fresh, young and vibrant fruit. A beautiful port, full of round, soft flavours but with an optimal structure giving this LBV tension and elegance. Essential for the cheese board, but also at home with most chocolate or fruit desserts.
