Description

Villa Montepaldi is a fabulous renaissance property, once owned by Leonardo di Medici consisting of 300 hectares of vineyards and olive groves that is now owned by The University of Florence, and doubles as the field station for the Oenology department. It is run as a non-profit organisation and, as such, the wines are phenomenally good value. The winemaking is overseen by Italy’s leading consultant in Carlo Ferrini and the wines themselves are traditional in style with beautiful violet aromas bursting with cherry fruit. Delicious in thier relative youth, the fabulous Chiantis from this property benefit hugely from their time in bottle. 


The classy 2018 is drinking beautifully with fruit, spice and acidity in perfect harmony.

2019 morgon les charmes, chateau grange cochard

Gamay

Château Grange Cochard lies in the heart of the Morgon Appelation on granitic, shaly slopes and has been crafting classic wines from their superbly sited vineyards since the 18th Century.   The 'Les Charmes' is one of the favoured 'lieu-dits' of Morgon and winemaking is traditional, with hand harvested fruit fermented carefully in the semi-carbonic maceration method with half being whole bunches and half de-stemmed fruit.  Maturation is in a mixture of vat and cask and sulphur addition low.

2018 chateau saransot dupre, cru bourgeois superieur listrac

Bordeaux Blend

Chateau Saransot-Dupre is a favourably sited 17 hectares property that lies between Fourcas Dupré and Fourcas Hosten in Listrac.  Due to Listrac’s cooler temperatures, Merlot and Cabernet Franc are favoured over Cabernet Sauvignon to form the majority of the blend, helping them achieve optimum ripeness.  Much like Chateau Fourcas Hosten, the wines have improved year on year since 2010 and the property were put on the radar thanks to a certain Robert Parker hailing the 2010 vintage as 'classed growth quality'.  High praise indeed!

Nerello Mascalese

The Nostru range from Azienda Agricola Cortese offer terrific value, expressive wines made with grapes more commonly associated with the slopes of Mount Etna. The farming here is traditional and a nod to when organic production was a way of life rather than an informed decision.
