Best of The Press
Wines that impressed the Fourth Estate.
Our wines have enjoyed a plethora of praise in the first quarter of 2019, topped off by a crackerjack feature in The Weekend Telegraph in which Victoria Moore celebrated our "bon vivant philosophy and nose for undiscovered talent." This selection includes half a dozen wines singled out by different wine journalists, so that you can pit your palates against the professionals. This mixed case contains two bottles each of:
Chablis: Domaine Christophe Camu 2017 "Spoil yourself with the beautifully crafted Christophe Camu Chablis 2017." Fiona Beckett - The Guardian.
Rheinhessen: Jürgen Hofmann Weisser Burgunder Trocken 2017 "It's charmingly aromatic, low in alcohol (just 12% volume) and full of white stone fruit, apple and pear flavours with a faintly creamy finish. I love it and just wish that well-made German wines such as this were better-regarded." Jonathan Ray - The Spectator Wine Club.
Chinon: Francis et Françoise Desbourdes 'L'Arpenty' 2018 "I'm a sucker for Loire cabernet franc in a warm year, and this one really delivers with a bright uplift of summer pudding fruit and flowering redcurrant leaves." Victoria Moore - The Telegraph.
Bordeaux Supérieur: Château d'Abzac 2015 "100% merlot, and full of ripe plummy fruit this really is Bordeaux with a friendly face. It will appeal to people who like New World wines but it’s still got the all important refreshment factor." Henry Jeffrys - The Spectator.
Saint-Chinian: Château Milhau-Lacugue 'Les Truffières' 2014 "Shaped like a lusty Pomerol more than a rustic Gigondas, this is a beautiful wine made from Syrah and Grenache." Matthew Jukes - MoneyWeek Wine Club.
IGP Côtes Catalanes: Domaine Ferrer-Ribière 'Empreinte du Temps' Carignan 2016 "Full-bodied and creamy in texture, enjoy this wine's supple tannins and lingering finish over the next 5 years. 90/100." Joe Czerwinski - robertparker.com
