Description

“The 2009 Coutet has a very intense nose of apricot, papaya, honeysuckle and orange cordial that is very well defined. Interestingly I write the same comment as my appraisal out of barrel in that I would prefer just a little more vigor. However that is a minor quibble. The palate is very well- balanced with a rounded, caressing entry. There is certainly tremendous weight in the mouth and abundant botrytis, especially upon the unctuous finish. This has great potential — a fantastic wine from one of the finest Barsac estates. Drink now-2035+.” Neal Martin, 2013.


“Tasted blind. Deep gold. Very big and massive and yet fresh, with enormous weight but tension too. Almost hot! Dense.” – 18/20 Jancis Robinson, tasting in March 2019.

Brachetto

The history of the Brachetto is steeped in legend and fascination. An antique drink that was mentioned for the first time during the Roman empire when writers described the customs of the ‘Gallia Cisalpina’ (Gaul, on this side of the Alpes), speaking of a sweet aromatic wine of Acqui Terme, very appreciated by the patricians.

NV NUY Red Muscadel, Worcester

Muscat

A long standing favourite of ours, this delicious wine is a bit of a cape classic.  Made from late harvested Muscat de Frontignan grapes which are gently crushed then left on their skins for 48 hours before a short fermentation.The wine is then fortified and bottled with the result being a wonderfully fresh, floral stickie taht remains on the correct side of cloying.  Enjoy this versatile dessert wine with a variety of puddings or as a long drink with masses of ice as the locals would.  Terrific value.

2008 Colheita Tawny, Niepoort, Douro Valley

Douro Blend

A brick-red appearance with some light orange tinges leads into a fine slightly smokey aroma with hints of dried fruits. The palate is refreshing, with wonderful acidity and hints of dried apricots and crystallised fruit, leading to a lengthy mellow spirit driven finish.

2012 Quarts De Chaume, Baumard, Half Bottle

Chenin Blanc

We have a soft spot for the incredible Chenin Blancs from Baumard and gems such as this truly spectacular wine highlight the quality of winemaking at this Domaine.  Baumard eschew traditional trellising methods for this part of the Loire and have also flown in the face of tradition by switching excluisively to screwcaps for their range.  The Quarts de Chaume vineyard enjoys a superb terroir and a unique situation producing wines of rare elegance.  This remarkable wine is wonderfuly textured and manages to comine power and clarity alongside richness and precision. Complex with floral bouquets and notes of citrus and orchard fruit with impeccable acidity, this is a wine to savour.
