Case of the Month
Champagne (2 bottles)
CHAMPAGNE PIERRE GERBAIS, NV CUVEE RESERVE - ORGANIC
50% white varieties (Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc Vrai) and 50% Pinot Noir. Elegant and complex bouquet, with new-season’s red apple, nectarine, lemon biscuit, yeast and vanilla on the nose, which are mirrored with subtle concentration on the palate.
Whites (2 of each)
CAVES DE LABASTIDE-DE-LEVIS, GAILLAC 2016 TERRANE SAUVIGNON BLANC
100% Sauvignon Blanc. A fantastic freshness with fragrant notes of grapefruit. Supple, elegant with a crunch.
HERMANN DONNHOFF, OBERHAUSER, NAHE 2016 RIESLING QBA TROCKEN
100% Riesling. Pale straw coloured, has a lively citrus (lime) and mineral nose, and on the palate plenty of good crisp fruit and just the right amount of acid to balance.
Reds (2 of each)
DE MARTINO SINGLE VINEYARD, MAIPO CARMENERE “ALTO DI PIEDRAS”
100% Carmenere. This is subtle, austere and serious with aromas of tobacco leaves and spices. There is fantastic balance on the palate, and it feels very young, with refined chalky tannins and good freshness.
DOMAINE JEAN FOILLARD, MORGON – ORGANIC 2016 MORGON “CLASSIQUE”
100% Gamay. The colour is on the dark side of cloudy ruby red, whilst aromas boom happily out of the glass, notably kirsch, rhubarb and sweet blackberries; there’s a more fugitive bouquet of warm earth, stones and dried spice evolving into dark chocolate and cinnamon. It is extremely refreshing, bright sweet fruit is complemented by a smooth, silky tannic structure.
Sweet (1 of each)
EMILIO HIDALGO, JEREZ PEDRO XIMENEZ - 50CL
Very dark, almost opaque colour; the aroma is of toasted nuts from old solera and hints of raisins and flavours reminiscent of dates, sweet figs and molasses. Long and complex and very pure.
CLOS LAPEYRE, JEAN-BERNARD LARRIEU, JURANÇON – ORGANIC 2014 JURANCON LA MAGENDIA – ½ BOTTLE
Exhibiting a sublime expression of sweet fruit: mangoes, coconut, grapefruit and banana bound by crystal-pure acidity.
