Wine Review

CHATEAU LA MISSION-HAUT-BRION,

2015, Pessac-Léognan

Inky purple colour with intense concentrated aromas of blackcurrant, blackberry, black cherry and smoky tobacco . A black fruit palate with liquorice undertones and cedar wood nuances with spicy peppery notes. Superbly structured with big firm, grippy and integrated tannins and a balanced acidity on the finish. Superb with duck breast carpaccio, stuff quails with morels, cheese ( Brie de Meaux, Roquefort, Comté), pear and chocolate Charlotte.

JACKSON FAMILY

La Muse 2012, Sonoma Valley, USA

Elegant and complex, possessing a superb concentration of flavour and colour. With a long cellaring the wine will develop even greater depth and character. Superb with morels feuilleté, beef wellington, cheese (Brie de Meaux, Stilton, Cantal).

PENFOLDS

Yattarna Chardonnay 2016

With a name translating from an Aboriginal phrase to 'little by little, gradually' the Penfolds Yattarna Chardonnay 2016 is a recent version of a celebrated 1998 classic. Opening to a chorus of stone fruit that yields to perfectly pitched acidity, supported by French oak for a balanced, unfussy finish. Delicious with fine charcuterie, scallop curry, turbot with mussels and shellfish velouté.

SOLDERA

Soldera Case Basse Sangiovese, 2013, Italy

Delicate ruby red in colour, with delightful aromas of red fruits, earthy and some floral notes. On the palate, blackcurrant, dark berries, chocolate, vanilla, balsamic, herbs and some tobacco with opulent tannins and a fresh acidity on the lingering finish. Enjoy it with steak pepper, beef teppanyaki, or cheese (Cheddar, Gouda, Gruyère).

WEINGUT BERNHARD HUBER

Wildenstein Spätburgunder 'R' 2013, Germany

Bright ruby in colour, with an intoxicating fragrance of wild berries, roasted nuts and wet earth on the nose. The palate is tightly structured and the minerality well interwoven with its youthful tannins, and harmonious notes of vanilla, cinnamon, pink pepper and ripe plum. It is finely balanced, with an incredibly long finish. Perfect with foie gras ravioli, rib steak and Roquefort, raspberry Charlotte.
