Louis Nouvelot Brut NV, Champagne, France
“GOLD MEDAL” (FEMINALISE Wine Competition 2017) “Fresh mixed fruit scents (exotic fruits, citrus) with similar characters on the palate, young & lively.” (Le Guide Hachette des Vins)
Lamblin & Fils Chablis, Burgundy, France
”88/100..matured in stainless steel for eight months..crisp, marine-influence bouquet..green apple & freshly sliced pear coming through with time. ..well balanced.” (Parker’s Wine Advocate)
Corralillo Riesling, San Antonio Valley, Chile
Intense aromas of apricot, flowers, citrus, mineral expression and the classic hints of petrol on the nose. On the palate it has nice and fresh mineral acidity and a bright lingering finish.
Katnook Estate Founders Block Shiraz, Coonawarra, Australia
Generous depth of ripe flavour, showing varietal red berry fruit qualities with hints of pepper and liquorice. The juicy palate is underscored with gentle sweet vanilla oak and complemented by fine grained tannins.
Château Labattut, St-Georges-St-Emilion, Bordeaux, France
A lovely wine with a classic profile. Rich blackcurrant characters, brambley acidity and melting tannins make a bracing supporting act at the finish. This red does all it should do, lingering and lasting on the palate, with lively fruit and plenty of structure.
La Fleur d’Or Sauternes, Bordeaux, France (37.5cl)
“94/100. This is explosively rich, with almond cream, heather & honeysuckle aromas giving way to mouthwatering lime chiffon, papaya and dried persimmon notes. Long and expansive, with an intense finish.” (Wine Spectator)
