3rd Floor Wines

We’ve got some pretty exciting new bits in from 3rd Floor Wines which we tasted recently with our rep (and friend) Mike over a pretty boozy lunch. Heres a selection of the new bits we'll be stocking from them.

 

 

Scacciadiavoli Montefalco Bianco 2017

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. 

 

 

Chapelle de Bebian Rouge Coteaux de Languedoc 2016

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.

 

 

Ch Tirecul la Graviere Monbazillac 2016

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!
