Villages People Mixed Case Offer

Superior 'Côtes' from the Rhône, Roussillon and Burgundy.

Villages People
£225.00
Save £11.00

There is rationale behind this case, as well as an unmissable opportunity to squeeze in a vaguely humourous reference to the legendary Greenwich Village 70s disco ensemble. Villages status is conferred on wines that sit above the generic 'Côtes du...' level. They are from better situated (normally steeper) vineyards and are subject to more stringent appellation regulations than their regular Côtes brethren. The two whites are from family domaines with centuries of experience in the Rhône and Beaujolais, while the three smart reds (Burgundy and the Roussillon, twice) are produced by world-renowned wine-makers.

This mixed case contains three bottles each of:

WHITE:
Côtes du Rhône Villages Sablet: Domaine Saint Gayan 2016
Beaujolais Villages: Arnaud Aucoeur 'Vieilles Vignes' Blanc 2018

In addition, two bottles each of:

RED:
Côte de Nuits-Villages: Frédéric Magnien 'Croix Violette' 2017
Côtes du Roussillon Villages: Domaine du Clos des Fées 'Vieilles Vignes' Rouge 2017
Côtes du Roussillon Villages: Agly Brothers 2018

This mixed case includes

3 x Côtes du Rhône Villages Sablet: Domaine Saint Gayan 2016£0.00

"Lush, old-vine white from one of the Rhône 'crus'. Really good value for money."
Fiona Beckett - The Guardian.

3 x Beaujolais Villages: Arnaud Aucoeur 'Vieilles Vignes' Blanc 2018£0.00

An old-vine Beaujolais Villages blanc made from pure Chardonnay that sees no oak, this wine has fresh apple blossom scents and a taut and minerally, whistle-clean palate. It makes a bracing aperitif or partner to dressed crab or whitebait.

2 x Côte de Nuits-Villages: Frédéric Magnien 'Croix Violette' 2017£0.00

From plots in the village of Brochon (just north of Gevrey-Chambertin), this Côte de Nuits-Villages is fantastic value. The flavour profile has a little more red cherry fruit than its sibling Marsannay with an expressed minerality, supple mouthfeel and crisp acidity.

2 x Côtes du Roussillon: Agly Brothers 2018£0.00

"Deeply colored, the 2018 Côtes Du Roussillon Villages is a step up over the 2017 and has rocking notes of black raspberries, blackberries, spring flowers, licorice, and graphite. It's rich and full-bodied, with a terrific mid-palate and a great finish. 93-95/100"
