Hot Off The Press Mixed Case Offer
Recent recommendations from the Fourth Estate.
We've enjoyed a plethora of positive press recently, so we thought it only fair to share some of the wines that have been exciting the cognoscenti with you.
This mixed case contains two bottles each of:
AOP Côtes du Rhône Brézème: Domaine Lombard 'Les Davids' Blanc 2020
"Marsanne, Roussanne, Viognier. Intriguingly perfumed. Something savoury? Toast and yeast extract! Lots of fruit but much more structure and character than most blends of this sort. 16.5/20, Drink 2022-2024."
Jancis Robinson OBE, MW - JancisRobinson.com
Jurançon Sec: Domaine Bellegarde 'Énergique' 2019
"Mildly exotic on the nose, smooth and buoyant on the palate and stunningly dry on the finish, the shape of this wine is precisely what we all crave. But there is more, given that Gros Manseng is uniquely flavoured, with wildflower stone fruit, pithy tanginess and stony minerality, so you are in for one hell of a ride."
Matthew Jukes - MoneyWeek.
Stellenbosch: Migliarina Chenin Blanc 2020
"Made by former sommelier Carsten Migliarina from low-yielding old vines, it's barrel-fermented and, although dry, is full of rich, toasty, creamy baked apples and peaches complete with whispers of honeyed vanilla. It's a wonderful wine, of which only 270 cases were made."
Jonathan Ray - The Spectator.
Vin de Pays de Vaucluse: Le Petit Caboche 2020
"This juicy red blend, made by the Châteauneuf-producing Boisson family, is soft and cheerful."
Victoria Moore - The Telegraph.
Lirac: Domaine Maby 'La Fermade' Rouge 2019
"Mulberry, rubber and baked plums. Firm tannins and a juicy mouthfeel, leather and garrigue notes with black olive, liquorice and graphite. Very attractive easy drinking."
Alistair Cooper MW - JancisRobinson.com
Crozes Hermitage: Domaine Equis 'Equinoxe' 2020
"Classic, spicy, northern Rhône syrah that would be lovely with lamb or roast duck. An amazing amount of flavour for the ABV."
Fiona Beckett - The Guardian.
