Connoisseur Wines

White Wine

2014 Saint Veran, Chapelle aux loups, Louis Jadot, Burgundy, France 58.50
The limestone soils of this domaine are ideal for making fine Chardonnay. Dry delicate with floral and citrus aromas and marked hazelnuts aromas; the wine is unoaked and has a fresh style to it.
 

2015 Chablis Premier Cru, Tonnerre Vauroux, Burgundy, France 62.00
Although its nose is a little closed-in, the wine has an important richness and enough of complexity. Due to its acidity, it has very good aptitudes for ageing. Its suppleness and freshness go along with a powerful bouquet of citrus fruits.

2016 Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc, Domaine Chante Cigale, RhoneValley, France 70.00
The yield is a quality conscious 32 hectolitres per hectare, this allows the vine to put all its resources into fewer grapes and therefore gives the winemaker the best possible raw material to work with. fragrant, reminiscent of almond and peach blossom. The palate is a wonderfully smooth, silky textured balance of dried apricot fruit and fresh appley acidity.
 

2015 Puligny-Montrachet, Remoissenet Père & Fils, Burgundy, France 89.50
A nose of white flowers and gentle citrus fruit, the palate crackles with stoney minerality and wonderful tension. This is a dry elegant wine that rounds out with notes of cream on the finish, perfect to be partnered with white meat dishes and white fish with rich sauces.

2015 Meusault, Les Nauvaux, Domaine Chavy-Chouet, Burgundy, France 93.00
A rare and much sought after grower. Francois Cotat produces idiosyncratic, complex and age worthy Sancerres from his tiny 3 hectare estate. The cultivation is arduous and must be done entirely by hand. The grapes are late picked for maximum flavour.

 

Red Wine

Vacqueyras, Vieux Clocher, Rhone Valley, France 52.50
 Produced from vines growing on a stony plateau, the Vacqueyras is characterised by its power, virility, and the finesse of its aromas. Deep purple in colour, powerful fruity fragrances on the nose and healthy tannins, giving the wine a full body on the palate.

Châteauneuf du Pape, Domaine Chante Cigale, Rhone, France 60.00
 Dark red, with a distinctive nose of wild herb, ripe fresh cherries and sweet plums. Pure Chateauneuf du Pape in a glass! Perfectly ripe forrest and black fruit, soft tannins in the background, fine acidity, ready to drink.
 

Pinot Noir, Wilde Farm, Anderson Valley, California, USA 65.00
Wilde Farm makes wine from old vines and exceptional vineyards. Quatities are very small and wines are made by hand. Big, bold, black fruits; spice and immense texture; long length on the palate.

Nuit Saint Georges 'Les St Julien',Chevillon-Chazeaux, Burgundy, France 66.00
The aromas are powerful and elegant, with notes of cherry and raspberry, as well as hints of cedar wood evolving towards gamey touches. A fine wine for game & poultry roasted dishes but also thick flesh fish & mushrooms based sauces.

Pommard, Domaine Christophe Vaudoisey, Burgundy, France 72.00
A bold structured Pinot Noir, with flavours of cherries and herbs. A very powerful Pinot coming from the renowned village of Pommard which is located in Cote de Beanne, the sub region of Burgundy.

Chateau d'Issan, 3ėme cru classė, Bordeaux, Margaux, France 120.00
The estate is planted with 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot. D'Issan shows a wonderful explosion of strong, black fruit and creamy notes, whilst the palate is weighty, polished with some grip and crunchy tannins; instense and lengthy.
 

Château Pavie, Aromes de Pavie, Saint Emillion, Bordeaux, France 130.00
Fully matured medium bodied Claret with intense red fruit, mellow spices, soft tannins, smooth elegant character & oaky tones. Perfect match for grilled red meat and peppery sauces. Great vintage from this great Château.

 

Château Beychevelle, Saint-Julien, Grand Vin, Bordeaux, France 140.00
Very aromatic and stylish wine with enchanting elegance and finesse. Creamy fruit and soft texture, round and gentle wine. There is plenty of tabacco, earth, forest, cassis, cedar wood and cranberry to go around.
 

Clos de Vougeot, Frederic Esmonin, Bourgogne, France 145.00
Earthy, expressive and intense aromas introduce austere yet sweet medium weight, relatively robust and powerful flavors underpinned by firm, dusty tannins that are completely buffered by impressive levels of sap. A fine Pinot Noir indeed.
 

Château d' Ampuis, Côte-Rôtie, Rhône Valley, France 180.00
The Chateau D'Ampuis displays deep dark color with mauve tints and aromas of spices, black fruits and delicate oak with a dense, expressive and intense nose. Flavors of prunes, blackberry and vanilla. Powerful, concentrated and structured palate.
 

Château Talbot, Saint-Julien, Bordeaux, France 200.00
Soft ruby color, nice mellow nose w/very soft tannins. Held well to pallette without exceptional oakiness. Very strong legs. Opens as a flower with a soft fragrance. Taste of soft leather & mellow oakiness, not over bearing.
 

Château Palmer, Margaux, Bordeaux, France 350.00
Moderate acidity; pleasantly lush & silky mouthfeel; surprisingly smooth and rounded tannins. Taste of blackcurrant with hints of spice, tobacco & mushrooms in the mouth. Lovely, evolving finish which lasted forever. Ideal with rich sauces, stews & steaks.
 

Château Margaux, Margaux, Bordeaux, France 500.00
Tobacco, coffee, violets and earthy plums and spices. Christmas pudding and exotic continental black chocolates, black fruited; really sophisticated and nuanced plums, white flowers, dried flowers with bright acidity. A masterpiece!
 

Château Latour Grand Cru, Pauillac, Bordeaux, France 595.00
Cassis, dry red fruits, cedar & caramel. Very good concentration, complete integrated palate, shy red fruit driven palate impression, good acidity, no noticeable tannins and good length with cedary finish. One of the best Pauillac vintages of the last century if not the best.
