  • Château de Ricaud 2014, Cadillac, Côtes de Bordeaux, 14% vol, 150cl

    Château de Ricaud 2014, Cadillac, Côtes de Bordeaux, 14% vol, 150cl

    CL11

    To the south of Bordeaux city, near Cadillac, Château Ricaud boasts an exceptionally diverse array of soils. Impressed by its quality potential and the architectural splendour of the château, Alain Thiénot (of Champagne fame) bought the property in 1980 and has subsequently put in place a remodelling plan to transform the estate into a benchmark Loupiac and to create a Côtes de Bordeaux worthy of the finest wines.

     

    Château de Ricaud Cadillac is a blend of 90% Merlot,  8% Cabernet Sauvignon & 2% Petit Verdot from vines with an average age of 25 years. The wine was vinified in temperature-controlled stainless steel, followed by ageing in oak barriques, 20% of which were new, for 12 months.

     

    With its appealing dark ruby appearance, the wine is complex on the nose offering initial notes of strawberry and blackberry. Beautifully structured on the palate, full and generous with rounded, fleshy tannins.  Perfectly integrated oak character accompanies the long, delicately spiced finish.

  • “Cuvée Léonie” Brut N.V., Canard-Duchêne, Magnum, 12% vol, 150cl

    “Cuvée Léonie” Brut N.V., Canard-Duchêne, Magnum, 12% vol, 150cl

    CH30

    Named after Léonie Duchêne, one of the founders of the company, “Cuvée Léonie” is reserved for independent wine merchants and the world’s finest restaurants – we have listed it for several years and it has been our House Champagne since 2011.

     

    The blend is 50% Pinot Noir, 25% Pinot Meunier and 25% Chardonnay with reserve wine accounting for a significant proportion of the total (25%). Extended ageing in the cellar (3 years) adds depth and complexity.

     

    “All the elements are there: the buttery brioche aromas with top floral notes, the depth of flavours and the finish. It’s the way that it’s all presented that sets it apart. ‘There’s a driving blast of fine mousse, a powerfully zesty mid-palate, and it all develops into a long dry finish”

  • Coto de Imaz 2012 Reserva, Bodegas El Coto, Oyón, Double Magnum, 13.5% vol, 300cl

    Coto de Imaz 2012 Reserva, Bodegas El Coto, Oyón, Double Magnum, 13.5% vol, 300cl

    El Coto was founded in 1970 in Rioja Alavesa and has grown from modest beginnings into one of the best known Rioja producers. Today El Coto has over 700 hectares of vineyard in production across the three Rioja DOCa sub-zones of Rioja Alta, Rioja Baja and Rioja Alavesa. They also source grapes from all three areas, but mostly from Rioja Alavesa. Head winemaker Cesar Fernandez oversees production, starting with hand-picking into 350 kg crates to ensure the grapes arrive at the winery in pristine condition. Modern and intelligently designed, the emphasis in the winery is on temperature control and gentle handling of the grapes.

     

    100% Tempranillo from low yielding vines predominantly from the Rioja Alta region.

     

    The Tempranillo grapes are fermented in El Coto’s  Oyón cellar in large, temperature controlled stainless steel vats that are fitted with advanced technology for the strict control of fermentation and maceration temperatures and colour extraction. The aim, to achieve the right balance between structure and balance in the wines.

     

    The wine is then aged for 17 months in selected 225 litre, American-oak barrels and then for 3 years in bottle before release.

     

    Deep red in appearance with a hint of brown on the edge, the nose is complex with red berry aromas and smoky vanilla. The palate is round, warm and juicy with spicy red fruit and a soft richness. The gentle tannins add a firm structure and provide elegance and ageing potential.

  • Thiénot Brut N.V., “Speedy Grahpito” Limited Edition Magnum, 12.5% vol, 150cl

    Thiénot Brut N.V., “Speedy Grahpito” Limited Edition Magnum, 12.5% vol, 150cl

    CH03

    “Founded in 1985, Champagne Thiénot is the new kid on the champagne block and something of a trade secret. I came across the Brut NV the other day and was immediately smitten. A blend of 45% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir and 20% Pinot Meunier, it is light, delicate and fresh with hints of apple and quince – the perfect apéritif.”
    Jonathan Ray, The Field, April, 2011.

     

    Champagne Thiénot have teamed up with Oliver Rizzo, the internationally renowned street artist who works under the name ‘Speedy Graphito’, to design a striking, limited edition magnum of Thiénot Brut. This is the second edition of this limited production, special bottling.

     

    This somewhat unusual partnership came about when Oliver met Garance Thiénot who, with her brother Stanislas, runs Maison Thiénot. Garance was brought up in a strong artistic tradition and has developed an intense interest in street art. She had been following the work of Speedy Graphito for several years and noted that there were parallels between the development of his work and that of Champagne Thiénot. The urban art movement took root in France in the 1980s and was growing just as Champagne Thiénot, created in 1985, began its expansion.
