Chave, Clape & Vernay gift pack.

Northern Rhône Syrah Trio
£155.00

Three legendary estates strutting their stuff in iconic Rhône Crus, packed in a wooden gift box.

This gift pack contains one bottle each of:

RED:
Côte Rôtie: Domaine Georges Vernay 'Blonde du Seigneur' 2017
"Energetic and focused on the palate, offering lithe, precise red and dark berry liqueur and violet pastille flavors and hints of star anise and cracked pepper. The floral note carries powerfully through a strikingly long finish, which features resonating red fruit and mineral notes and suave, well-judged tannins. This wine's elegant character is quite something, especially in the context of a hot vintage. 95/100. Drink 2025-34."

Hermitage: Jean-Louis Chave Sélection 'Farconnet' Rouge 2016
"Saturated ruby. Mineral- and spice-accented aromas of fresh dark berries, licorice and candied violet show excellent delineation, clarity and lift. At once rich and energetic in the mouth, offering juicy black raspberry, cherry and spicecake flavors that steadily deepen on the back half. Turns sweeter on the persistent, penetrating finish, which features well-knit tannins and lingering floral and exotic spice notes. This is quite graceful, and while it will no doubt reward patience, it's awfully easy to drink now. 94/100. Drink 2024-34."

Cornas: Domaine Clape 'Renaissance' 2016
...the 2016 Cornas Renaissance boasts a saturated purple color as well as a heady, intense bouquet of black plums, cedarwood, iron, and incense. It's a wild, exotic Cornas (and that's Clape) that has full-bodied richness, a big mid-palate, and building tannins. It's certainly more approachable than the grand vin, yet it needs a solid 4-5 years of bottle age to be drinkable. 94+/100" (tasted 2018).

This mixed case includes

1 x Côte Rôtie: Domaine Georges Vernay 'Blonde du Seigneur' 2017£0.00

"Dark, glistening violet. Intensely perfumed, mineral-accented aromas of black raspberry and boysenberry, joined by exotic spice, potpourri and incense nuances that build with air. Energetic and focused on the palate, offering lithe, precise red and dark berry liqueur and violet pastille flavors and hints of star anise and cracked pepper. The floral note carries powerfully through a strikingly long finish, which features resonating red fruit and mineral notes and suave, well-judged tannins. This wine's elegant character is quite something, especially in the context of a hot vintage. One-third whole clusters and 25% new oak. 95/100."

1 x Cornas: Domaine Clape 'Renaissance' 2016£0.00

"Starting with what could be considered the younger vine cuvée, the 2016 Cornas Renaissance boasts a saturated purple color as well as a heady, intense bouquet of black plums, cedarwood, iron, and incense. It’s a wild, exotic Cornas (and that’s Clape) that has full-bodied richness, a big mid-palate, and building tannins. It’s certainly more approachable than the grand vin, yet it needs a solid 4-5 years of bottle age to be drinkable. 94+/100."
