LINNE CALODO

Perfectionist 2013

Perfectionist 2013 of the Californian estate Linne Calodo reveals itself in power and richness. Syrah is grown on plots with a coldest climate to bring complexity and elegance. As for Mourvèdre and Grenache, they are co-fermented without destemming, which gives the wine a special identity and a lot of structure. The Paso Robles Perfectionist 2013 is aged in concrete vats, to avoid any ageing aroma and thus expressing the authenticity quintessence of its terroir. The nose is aromatically very flattering. Notes of black fruits, smoked meat embellished with olives tapenade. On the palate the wine is warm, ample, with a beautiful depth. Powerful, rich and elegant, this cuvée is full of gourmandise. Delicious with beef tournedos, leg of lamb, Roasted Wild Duck, Asian dishes, cheese (Saint-Nectaire, Roquefort).

ALAIN JEANNIARD

Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru-les Damodes 2017

Since 1755, viticulture has fascinated the Jeanniard family. It is also out of passion that Alain Jeanniard undertakes in 1999 a reconversion from the industrial world to the wine world. He took over the family estate in 2000 and now operates 7 ha of vines. The domain consists of several well-known premier crus. 1er Cru-les Damodes 2017 comes from 90 years old vines, planted on the famous Vosne-Romanée hillsides. To preserve the richness of this terroir, the cultivation of the vine is made according to the principles of sustainable agriculture. 1er Cru-les Damodes 2017, has a bright ruby colour, a very expressive nose of red fruits, spices and raspberry. A refreshing mouth, rich and well-balanced with beautiful silky tannins. Sublime with roasted wild duck, veal tajine, cheese (Caprice des Dieux, Livarot, Pont-L’Evêque).

KOPKE

Winemaker’s Collection, Tinto Cão, Reserva Douro, Rosé 2020

Beautiful salmon colour, this rosé captivates with great delights. On the nose it expresses notes of pomegranate and hibiscus. Subtle and elegant on the palate with great acidity and a long and fresh finish. Enjoy it as an aperitif, delicious with Sushi, langoustine fritters with fine herbs, or summer berries fools.

LE CARILLON DE VENDOME

Le Cocagne Pineau d’Aunis 2015

Pineau d’Aunis, or Chenin Noir, is a notable Loire grape variety from Touraine and Anjou. It gives light red wines once sought after by the kings of France and rosé and white wines in still and sparkling wines. This Pineau d’Aunis 2015, has a grapefruit pink colour, hint of spices and pepper. Expressive, fresh and fruity with aromas of citrus and raspberry, hint of cardamon with fine crisp lemons. Fresh peppery finish. Perfect with rocket and parmesan salad, salmon gravlax, grilled pork in barbecue sauce.

CHAMPAGNE CHASSENAY D’ARCE

Brut Cuvée Première

Seductive golden colour, highlighting the finesse of a regular effervescence. The nose opens with beautiful fruity nuances (citrus, melon) and honey. With great precision, the mouth packs a succession of tasty fruit flavours, displaying a deliciously fresh and elegant texture. Delicious with aperitif dinatoire, lamb cutlets and wild mushrooms, croquembouche.
