    Châtea La Petite Roque 2014, Blaye, Côtes de Bordeaux, 13% vol, 150cl

    CL30

    The second wine of Chateau Monconseil Gazin based in the village of Plassac.

     

    The vineyards are situated on the hillside above the village, just to the south of Blaye. Here the clay/limestone soils provide good drainage and encourage a deep root system for the vines. The vineyards have a south/south west aspect giving excellent conditions for ripening the grapes.

     

    Fermentation is in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats followed by 12 months in mainly old oak.

     

    A blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine is very dark in the glass with lots of red berry aromas. The palate is full, with juicy fruit and firm tannins. Very well made and excellent value claret.

    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.

    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.

  • 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.
