Showing deep straw/gold in the glass with refined floral and honeyed citrus scents and elegant, medium-sweet, honeyed lemon citrus, drying mineral, well-balanced acidity and lingering lemon honey on the finish.
A rich, treacly sweet cider that hails from Quebec, where the winters are so cold that some apples are left on the trees to shrivel up, producing super-sweet, concentrated juice. This cidre de glace drinks like a honey-packed apple reduction, with some tart acidity. Serve it in ponies alongside a cheese plate, it goes especially well with fresh chèvre and rich, triple-cream brie.
A very stylish Tawny Port style showing raisiny, slightly burnt aromas reminiscent of Madeira and complex, rich dried fruit, toffee and enough acidity to temper the opulent sweetness.
Plum, dark cherry, herbs, cocoa and baking spice appear in this easy-drinking Merlot. The tannins are supple and there is a dash of mint on the finale.
An elegant frame supports cherry, raspberry, rhubarb, beetroot, iron, vanilla and spice. Fresh acidity and suave tannins add support. Magret de canard would be bliss!
Typical cool-climate Franc notes of cassis, raspberry, tobacco, graphite, violets, cocoa and green notes. Elegant, with fine-grained tannins and freshness. Ready to drink with braised meats and stews.
