A cool blend from Umbria, Northern Italy! Trebbiano, Grechetto & Chardonnay. It works. This was super fresh with a fairly high acid and a great texture! Aged in large neutral oak so had a touch of nuttiness.
The Languedoc often gets overlooked or thought as the engine room of the French wine industry. It is certainly one of the largest but we think there is some serious quality and value to be found there!
We thought this was great for the money and tasted how you wish Chateau-nuef-du-pape tasted at this price point. It’s predominantly Syrah, supported by Mourvèdre. It’s rich, ripe and savoury. A definite winer.
We though this was a proper top class wine from the husband & wife duo behind Château Tirecul La Gravière. It seems like they have earned no small amount of acclaim for the sweet wines they produce in Montbazillac. With renowned wine critic Robert Parker saying “They are among the greatest sweet wines I have tasted… from anywhere!”.
This was intensely rich but still super fresh - orange peel, pineapple & saffron!
