Rhône Magnums Trio Mixed Case Offer
£150.00

We are decidedly pleased to offer this impressive snapshot of the wines of the Rhône valley in larger format. Less cork pulling, more 'wow' factor, everyone loves a magnum, especially at this time of year.

This mixed case contains three 1.5 Litre magnums, one each of:

WHITE:
Brézème: Domaine Lombard Blanc 2019
"Brilliant straw-yellow. Aromas of ripe citrus and orchard fruits and jasmine are complicated by hints of honey and dusty minerals. Juicy and seamless on the palate, offering vibrant white peach and tangerine flavors that show sharp definition and spicy cut. The mineral note comes back on the incisive finish, which hangs on with very good tenacity. 91-92/100."

RED:
Crozes Hermitage Rouge: Alain Graillot 2017
"A fresh and focused style, with violet, white pepper, cassis and pastis notes streaming through, carried by a solid graphite edge through the finish. Drink now through 2027. 91/100."
James Molesworth - Wine Spectator.

Gigondas: Domaine du Grand Montmirail 'Vieilles Vignes' 2016
"The 2016 Gigondas Vieilles Vignes is 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre. On the nose, it's flowers and spice, hinting at violets but also cinnamon and clove. Medium to full-bodied, it's crisper than many Gigondas this vintage, with cherry, cranberry and pomegranate flavors framed by fine-grained tannins. It should drink well at least through 2030. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. Drink 2020 - 2030. 92/100."

This mixed case includes

1 x Brézème: Domaine Lombard Blanc 2019£0.00

An elegant, attractive Brézème Blanc that reveals aromas and flavours of nuts and orchard fruit prior to a clean, dry finish. This white Brézème wine benefits from decanting and should not be served too chilled. Ideal as an aperitif or with seafood, fish or poultry. Certified organic.

1 x Crozes Hermitage Rouge: Alain Graillot 2017£0.00

This world-renowned red Crozes Hermitage is Alain Graillot's principal wine in terms of production, and hails from mature Syrah rootstock on the 'Les Chassis' plateau. It has an intense black fruit bouquet and plump palate of dark, hedgerow berries, a good palate-cleansing acidity and fine-grained tannins.

1 x Gigondas: Domaine du Grand Montmirail 'Vieilles Vignes' 2016£0.00

"The finest wine ever from this estate is the 2016 Gigondas Vieilles Vignes, which is 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and 10% Mourvèdre that was destemmed and brought up in 30% new barrels. (The Grenache was brought up all in concrete). It's an incredibly gorgeous, full-bodied, powerful yet elegant Gigondas that has rocking notes of plums, black raspberries, kirsch, spice, and new saddle leather literally soaring from the glass. With ultra-fine tannins, a silky, seamless texture, no hard edges, and a great, great finish, it's a wine to buy by the case. 95/100."
