Deep reddish brown colour with a thick, persistent creamy head and warm, nutty and dark chocolate aromas. Sweet cherry and chocolate flavours emerge on the palate delivered in a smoothly rounded texture, finishing with creamy caramel and nutty, slightly bitter finish. An excellent satisfying brew.
A mid-weight and easy-drinking Franc with cassis, raspberry, violets, tobacco, cocoa and spice flavours. Ready to drink with a smoked pork loin topped with a herb demi-glace.
A stellar value from the famed Chardonnay vineyard of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger which is rated Grand Cru per the Échelle des Crus classification. This bubbly is very toasty and autolytic with added nuance in the form of lemon, apple, nuts and hints of caramel. Lively on the palate with creamy bubbles and delightful length.
Elegant and focused with aromas of wildberries, currant, spice, tobacco, chocolate and coffee; flavours of currant and black cherries, tobacco and vanilla with fine, mildly grippy tannins and a long, expressive, fresh finish. A little heavy on the oak now, but should integrate nicely with 2 to 3 years in the cellar. Worth trying with some dark chocolate.
Sweet cherry, raspberry and strawberry jam meld with hints of blue fruits, cocoa and herbs. Vibrant acidity buttresses a rich texture. Long finale. A flourless chocolate cake would be gorgeous with this sticky.
A nifty Chenin that’s typical of this South African staple white with an expressive nose of tropical fruits, grapefruit, peach and a touch of wild honey. It’s big (14% alcohol) and refreshingly dry on the palate with a creamy texture and loaded with pineapple and peach fruit goodness. It’s fresh and vibrant through the finish. Pair with cold chicken dishes, seafood or perfect with sushi.
