  • El Coto 2014 Crianza, Bodegas El Coto, Oyón, Magnum, 13% vol, 150cl

    El Coto 2014 Crianza, Bodegas El Coto, Oyón, Magnum, 13% vol, 150cl

    RJ27

    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 from each of the three sub zones of the Rioja: Baja, Alta and Alavesa.

     

    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 a minimum 12 months in selected 225 litre, American-oak barrels and then for at least 6 months in bottle before release.

     

    Bright ruby-red in colour, the fresh fruit aromas are preserved on the nose together with typical liquorice aromas from the oak and hints of vanilla. In the mouth good balance. Silky, velvety with good intensity.

  • “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”

    Château Caronne Ste. Gemme 2012, Cru Bourgeois, Haut-Médoc, 12.5% vol, Impériale, 600cl

    CL66

    A very reliable Cru Bourgeois property, Château Caronne Ste. Gemme is located in the Haut-Médoc adjacent to St.Julien. Owned by Jean and Francois Nony, the property consists of 45 hectares of vineyards and produces over 20,000 cases a year.

     

     

    Caronne Ste. Gemme 2012 is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. The wine is fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel before being transferred for maturation in oak barriques (20% of which are new, the rest being 2nd or 3rd fill) for 12 months.

     

     

    A rich nose of red fruit, cedar and spices leads on to a palate that is full and rounded with soft tannins and flavours of red fruits, vanilla, a hint of smoke and subtle oak. A lovely claret from a splendid Bordeaux vintage.

     

    **An Impériale – 6 litres, or the equivalent of 8 bottles – in an individual, branded wooden box.**

  • Château Rousseau de Sipian 2009, Cru Bourgeois Médoc, Impériale, 13% vol, 600cl

    Château Rousseau de Sipian 2009, Cru Bourgeois Médoc, Impériale, 13% vol, 600cl

    CL69

    60% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon.

     

    This fine property comprises a beautiful 19th century house, parkland and some 15 hectares of vineyard. Under British ownership from 2000 until recently, a huge amount of investment has gone in to restoring not only the house but also the vineyards and cellars. The results of this are plain to see.

     

    Produced from 20 year old vines, the grapes are hand picked and carefully sorted in the vineyard. Fermentation is in temperature-controlled cement vats for a period of 3-4 weeks followed by 12 months ageing in oak, 60% of which is new.

     

    The 2009 is a classic Bordeaux vintage, very dark in appearance with a nose full of ripe fruit and elegant cedar notes. The palate is dry and broad with restrained cassis flavours, a touch of liquorice and warm spicy notes. The tannins are soft but support the wine well into the long finish.

     

    **An Impériale – 6 litres, or the equivalent to 8 bottles – in an individual, branded wooden box.**
