This very renowned wine has undergone fermentation in barrels, and also a maturing on lees in French oak barrels, 50% of which are new for a period of 9 months. The cuvée Caroline Chantegrive has an elegant golden yellow colour with emerald reflections, a nose of great aromatic richness, vanilla with hints of fresh butter, lime and almond, then a dense and structured mouth revealing exotic fruits mixed with spices and mint. Will pair wonderfully with Pan-fried foie gras, Gambas a la plancha or a Beauford cheese.
Château Mondot is the second wine of Château Troplong Mondot, Premier grand cru Classé B of Saint-Emilion. Mondot has a beautiful crimson colour with ruby reflections. One appreciates the nose where red plum and spices flavour mingle with a touch of vanilla. The attack on the palate is both supple and smooth, and the wine stands well in the mouth. There is maturity of this great vintage and the finale sits well. A great match with duck foie gras, truffled young partridge or a livarot.
Produced in the Volnay appellation, the wine of Domaine Roblet-Monnot expresses juicy red fruits (cherry, blackberry) on an elegant palate, with medium density. Pascal Roblot creates wine with a beautiful expression of Pinot Noir, unpretentious, and true to the spirit of its natural wines produced by organic farming. A perfect complement to quails with grapes, red mullet fillets escabeche or pears poached in red wine.
10 years ago, Benjamin de Rothschild and Pablo Alvarez, dreamed of creating a wine together in Rioja. Here is today the fruit of this wonderful project. This Macán Clásico 2011 reveals a dark purple colour. The nose opens with delicate cherry notes, Sichuan pepper and cocoa. In the mouth, freshness with fine tannins, aromas of cassis and cherry exhale. Benjamin de Rothschild and Pablo Alvarez offer us a straight and structured wine. Pair this nicely with beef carpaccio, stilton crusted fillet steaks with port wine sauce or a crème caramel.
Light, bright with beautiful tannic nuances, the olfactory sensations of this Long Now 2010 are obvious, they exalt the fruitiness side of the wine. One notices the strawberry and raspberry notes, typical of this wine. The finish is persistent and will leave a great memory of this marvellous Italian wine. An excellent accompaniment to white truffle risotto, pheasant or cherry clafoutis.
