Description

The Jurançon Clos Uroulat is a stunning dessert wine made from 100% Petit Manseng, late harvested in early November.  Wonderfully fresh, this botrytis free wine has plenty of honeyed, orange tinged floral fruit with precise and perfectly poised acidity.


Situated in the foothills of the Pyrénées, near the lovely town of Pau, this 16-hectare estate produces two very different styles of Jurançon in a region which is steeped in history. All of the Hours’ vines are trellised high at 2.5 metres to prevent damage from the spring frosts, and on average, the vines are over 20 years old.

2018 Clos Le Comte Cuvee Celine, AC Sauternes

White Blend

The Clos le Comte is a tiny, organically farmed vineyard that produces wonderfully elegant Sauternes.  The grapes are harvested after several passages through the vineyard ensuring that only the very ripest grapes are selected.  Wonderfully ripe, concentrated and complex fruit aromas. The rich bouquet shows notes of dried fruits, almonds, apricots, fresh citrus and peach blossom. Well structured on the palate with a viscous density resulting from the high levels of botrytis. Beautiful acidity gives excellent lively freshness to the spicy notes on the long finish.

Tokaji Essencia Aszu Gift Box.JPG

2000 Tokaji Aszu Essencia ‘Imperium’, Chateau Dereszla

We are delighted to be one of the very few UK merchants to get our hands on this sensational Tokaji Aszu Essencia from Dereszla.  Only produced in the very finest years, (made twice by Dereszla in the last 22 years), and now a defunct classification, this is a very rare slice of history in a bottle.  Incredibly sweet yet with perfectly poised acidity, the wine has a complex apricot and seville orange marmalade fruit character mingled with spice and gingerbread notes. With an impressive 252 grams per litre of sugar it is no wonder the wine is syrupy and very rich, but the constant freshness provided by the acidity keeps the wine balanced and makes it a wonderful match to dark chocolate desserts, good quality cheeseboards and rich pates.

Elyssium Black Muscat Quady Dessert Wine.JPG

2021 Elyssium Black Muscat, Quady Winery

Muscat

Andrew Quady's change of career from making fireworks to making wine produced an explosion of its own kind when he created Essensia from the Orange Muscat grape. It was an instant success and until 1985 he could not make enough to satisfy demand. Now Quady is the foremost American winery specialising entirely in dessert wines and continues to win medals worldwide.The grapes were crushed, chilled and allowed to macerate, in order to extract the desired aromas and flavours. Fermentation was arrested with a neutral grape brandy. This arrested fermentation preserved the delicate aromas of the fresh, ripe grapes. The wine was then aged for three months in small French oak barrels. Elysium is a brilliant crimson purple colour with aromas of ripe berries, rose petals,strawberries and lychees. The vibrant acidity balances beautifully with the sweetness of this wine, making it very refreshing.
