CHAMPAGNE DAVID LÉCLAPART

L'Astre 2010

David Léclapart develops exceptional champagnes with pure passion. Astre 2010 presents a sustained colour tinted naturally by the skin of the Pinot Noir. The nose has a beautiful power and the complexity in the mouth is remarkable. The finish is long and brings everything together with great freshness. Delicious with gourmet aperitifs (blinis with salmon eggs, Salmon verrines) veal cutlets and mushrooms or red fruits Charlotte.

CHATEAU BEYCHEVELLE

2006, Saint Julien

Beychevelle 2006 is 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot. The colour of the wine is a clear dark red, with aromas of blackberry, red plum and Sichuan pepper. This Beychevelle has a dynamic entry into the mouth and the tannins are long and energetic, with the necessary density and elegance. Pair beautifully with pheasant, beef rib with ceps, fricassée of ceps and truffles.

DOMAINE DU VIEUX TÉLÉGRAPHE

La Crau, 2005, Rhone

The Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe is one of the jewels of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Located on the famous plateau of la Crau, the domain has been in the Brunier family for over a century. Over generations and vintages, the estate continues its inexorable quest, to reveal all the magic of this mythical land. The wines elaborated with the purest respect of the tradition are marvels of delicacy, complexity and depth. Aromas of peppers and black fruits and very nice length in the mouth will not disappoint lovers of robust and voluminous wines. This fine vintage has even greater potential to age well Delightful with omelette with truffles, grilled swordfish steak, black chocolate cake.

DOMAINE HUBERT LIGNIER

Les Didiers, 2014, Burgundy

Domaine Hubert Lignier produces universally sought-after Burgundy wines, with ‘Les Didiers’ made from grapes grown in the communes of Nuits-Saint-Georges. The 2014 vintage shows a deep character, revealing aromas of red fruits, black fruits and spices. Its mouth, round, dense and suave, reserves an elegant finish worthy of the Nuits-Saint-Georges appellation. Delicious with a sweet bread feuilleté, Thai beef, cheese (Beaufort, Brie-de-Meaux, Délice de Pommard)

DOMAINE PEYRE ROSE

Syrah Léone, 2002, Languedoc

Leone Syrah from the Peyre-Rose estate offers a great aromatic complexity of spices, balsamic notes, cocoa, leather and truffle. Assembled around a dense and firm body, its power is skilfully tempered and balanced. A complex wine, the Syrah Léone vintage 2002 is an icon of quality in Languedoc. Great pairing with roast lamb, cheese (Bleu de Bresse, farmed brie, ewe cheese) desert (coffee Millefeuille, chocolate cake)
