This wonderful Morgon Cote de Py is the flagship wine in an impressive range from Domaine Petit Perou. The vineyards are over 40 years old and lie at 300 meters above sea level on a mixture of schist and decomposed granite soils, which add a telltale minerality to the wine. The expressive nose shows a mixture of red and black fruits with brighter notes of cherry too. The palate is wonderfully rounded, courtesy of 18 months in oak, superbly balanced and has a lovely mixture of freshness and velvety tannins on the finish. Open and hugely enjoyable at the moment (with a bit of breathing), this lovely wine will continue to develop for up to 10 years from the vintage.

2020 Cabernet Franc Seleccion, Bodegas Rio Del Elorza, Mendoza
The Verum Cabernet Franc Seleccion, Bodegas Rio Del Elorza has classic elements on the nose including wild strawberry, blackberry, pencil shavings and a hint of blackcurrant leaf. Lovely ripe fruits with a hint of stalky/vegetal character but not too much greenness, instead offering more body and depth of fruit and a slight touch of herbal mint. The full-bodied palate is elegant with firm tannins but a vital balancing acidity. Cedar notes show from the use of French oak and the finish is dominated by bright red fruit and mocha spice.
