Description

The Mandriolo Rosso is a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot grown in the coastal Maremma region of Tuscany.  This delightful red wine is so pretty on the nose with bright summer fruits and a hint of earthy spice.  The palate is equally fresh and fruit driven with finely poised acidity on the finish.  Light and easy to drink, the sunny disposition of this lovely red will keep you coming back for glass after glass.


The Moris family left Spain two hundred years ago to settle on the edge of the marsh lands of the Tuscan Maremma. At the time this was a virtually unpopulated area, ripe for agriculture but with severe problems with malaria; indeed it was not until the 1950s that the disease was finally eradicated. Until recently the Maremma remained a quiet backwater, beautiful and unspoilt, however the last 20 years has seen a huge increase in tourism in the area. The Moris family built up two agricultural estates (hence the farms in the name) totalling 476 hectares. The larger one, Fattoria Poggetti, is of 420 hectares in the Massa Marittima around 30km south of Bolgheri, whilst the smaller one, Poggio la Mozza, is in Morellino di Scansano. In total 100 hectares is planted to vines, with the rest of the estate growing other agricultural products such as coriander and olives. They were one of the first farms to realise the potential for fine wine here, when Dr Adolfo Parentini married into the family and along with his wife, Caterina Moris, took over running of the estate and over the last 40 years, the focus has shifted inexorably towards viticulture. Parentini produced his first DOC wine, a Morellino di Scansano, in 1981 and the first serious wine from the Poggetti estate was made in 1988 and was christened Avvoltore after a Tuscan bird of prey that is found on the estate.

2020 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.

2020 Chateau Saransot Dupre, Cru Bourgeois Superieurlistrac

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!

Half Bt Charmes de Kirwan.JPG

2016 Les Charmes de Kirwan, AC Margaux, Half Bottle

Bordeaux Blend

Les Charmes de Kirwan is the second wine of 3rd Growth Château Margaux and, like it's more grown up sybling, has benefitted from the massive investment program in both the winery and the vineyard in recent years.  It is generally made with the younger vines on the property but receives exactly the same care and attention as the wine.
