Le Chat Noir Pinot Noir 2017
Blood red in colour with a lifted and expressive nose, bursting with aromas of bright perfume, ripe plums and dark berries. The palate is rich and supple with a core of sweetly fruited red berry and dark cherry flavours balanced by bright acidity. Notes of forest floor and smoky spice add complexity before fine tannins provide definition to the finish. The finest Le Chat Noir Pinot Noir to date.
Elefante Tempranillo Shiraz 2018
Deep red in colour with a ripe, expressive nose of berries, blood plums and smoked spice. The palate is rich and opulently fruited packed with dark berried Shiraz fruit matched by structured, savoury Tempranillo and framed by silky tannins. Impressively complex and well balanced, this wine will gain character and complexity in the cellar for up to five years.
Maretti Langhe Barbera Nebbiolo 2016
The greatest wines of the region are made from the extremely long lived Nebbiolo, grown within the iconic appellations of Barolo and Barbaresco. Barbera however is the most widely planted and popular variety of the region, owing to its fruit-driven expressiveness and youthful approachability. Whilst the majority of the region’s vineyard owners still sell their fruit to large wineries and co-operatives, an increasing number are opting to make small amounts of wine themselves, selling directly under their own label such as Maretti.
Les Courtilles Cotes Du Rhone 2016
A lifted nose of dark berried fruit, forest undergrowth, oak and sweet spice. The palate begins with a burst of supple red berry and sweet cherry flavours balanced by bright acidity and nicely textured tannins. Beautifully balanced and flavoursome, the 2014 is a very attractive Cotes du Rhone that will deliver relaxed drinking pleasure over the next five years
