Featuring an elegant bottle-fermented, sparkling Chenin, a light, nervy, dry Riesling, a succulent Syrah from volcanic soils and our crowd-pleasing Côtes de Thongue, this case provides all you need for entertaining guests - be they visiting dignitaries or the next door neighbours.

This mixed case contains three bottles each of:

SPARKLING WHITE:
Vouvray Mousseux Brut 'Réserve' NV: Domaine Aubert
"When it comes to sparkling, Vouvray may not have the reputation of other fizz, but this 100% Chenin Blanc made using the Champagne method delivers at all levels, especially on price. Vibrant white peach and Golden Delicious apple characters are balanced by good acidity and a creamy mouthfeel. 90/100."
Christelle Guibert - Decanter magazine.

WHITE:
Saar: Willems-Willems Riesling 'Schiefer' 2017

RED
Coteaux de l'Ardèche: 'Basalte du Coiron' Syrah 2017
Côtes de Thongue: Domaine Les Filles de Septembre 'Tradition' 2017

This mixed case includes

3 x Vouvray Mousseux Brut£0.00

This delicious sparkling Vouvray wine has an inviting brioche bouquet and a teasingly frothy effervescence, making it ideal for all manner of celebrations or picnics - no corkscrew required!

3 x Saar: Willems-Willems Riesling 'Schiefer' 2017£0.00

This elegant Riesling comes from the steep slopes of the Saar valley where Carolin Willems is the 5th generation of women winemakers. Its dry limey, apple freshness works wonderfully with buttery, rich dishes - poultry and fish in particular and it has a lovely mineral flint character, some say due to the Devon blue slate soils.

3 x Coteaux de l'Ardèche: 'Basalte du Coiron' Syrah 2017£0.00

A limited production cuvée, from pure Syrah grown on (volcanic) basalt rock on the edge of the Coiron Mountains in the South-Eastern Ardèche.

3 x Côtes de Thongue: Domaine Les Filles de Septembre 'Tradition' 2017£0.00

Hugues and Roland's 'Domaine Les Filles de Septembre' Cuvée Tradition from the Côtes de Thongue has rapidly gained a loyal following, and is now one of our top-selling wines. It has a joyful summer berry bouquet and juicy palate of youthful, red fruit, with bright peppery undertones over a background of supple, ripe tannins. Think Bordeaux meets the Languedoc.
