FRENCH MIXED CASE

TASTING NOTES

CHATEAU DE LA MIRANDE PICPOUL DE PINET

A clear, light gold in colour. Fresh aromas of peaches, apricots and citrus fruits. The texture is very crisp with good acidity. The flavours are of stone fruits, white flowers with a dash of lemon and lime. Very bright and cleansing finish. Serve with linguine of crab and chilli, moules mariniere or a simple new potato salad.

CHATELAIN-DESJACQUES SAUVIGNON BLANC

A charming, fresh Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire valley that punches well above it's "Vin de France" label.  Stashed with fresh citrus, gooseberry flavours and a mouth-watering acidity.  Great for enjoying as an aperitif, with light fish dishes and perfect with fresh goat cheeses.

POUILLY-FUISSE, JULIENAS CHAINTRE

Lovely bright fresh citrus fruits, creamy, quite rich palate with some spice. Good acidity keeps it fresh and balanced, good length.

UN BON CANON PINOT NOIR

There's plenty of juicy red berries with silky smooth tannins and a crunchy, refreshing finish. A fantastic Pinot Noir to enjoy with grilled salmon or grilled tuna steaks.

COTES DU RHONE ROUGE CUVEE BONHEUR

This is a typical Rhone blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah and shows complex dark fruits with garrigue notes on the nose along side the odd whiff of violets.  The delicious and more’ish palate is rich and concentrated showing great depth and elegance through to the balanced finish.

VACQUEYRAS, LA CAVE DE GIGONDAS

A wine with a spicy nose and an appealing roasted meat note, finishing with a rich red berry fruit character.
