The Classic Christmas Claret & Burgundy Case
An exceptional case of wines at an excellent price. Every wine here will impress.
Pouilly Vinzelles sees no oak maturation and is ebulliently fruity and fresh with a delicate palate and surprising length. The Carbon d'Artigues is a wonderfully fragrant and honeyed dry white Graves which has a crisp flavour of melons balanced with a lively, refreshing finish. The wine sees no oak-ageing but does stay on its lees in the stainless steel vats over a 3-4 month period, adding a further dimension of complexity and a more exuberant fruitiness.
La Demoiselle de Sociando is graced with sweet red berry and floral notes. Light on its feet and gracious, this perfumed, silky Haut-Medoc is drinking beautifully now and will drink well for at least the next few years. Margaux from Maison Sichel has an expressive, ripe bouquet displaying all the finesse and elegance typical of the Margaux terroir. Complexity on the nose, with overripe, jammy red fruit aromas, vanilla and spice. Swirling brings out more oaky, toasty notes denoting traditional ageing in oak barrels and which blend harmoniously with the fruity aromas. The palate is concentrated and generous but not capricious, highly expressive and underpinned by tannins of the highest quality. Cotes de Nuits Villages VI is from sixty year old vines and is full of incredible and dense fruit, (very pure and ripe) bordering on the darker cherry side, which is framed by Xavier's meticulous and judicious use of new oak. Mercurey 1er Cru les Barraults is a very rich and sinewy wine loaded with complex raspberry fruit extracts. Ripened tannins and outstanding length which just goes on and on.
