  5. Chateau D'Ollieres Classic Rose, 2017

    Half cinsault, half grenache, this rosé is the brilliant proof of the benefits of the climate of Ollières. Hot days in summer and cool nights allow a slow but intense ripening of the grapes. The nose is particularly intense while the mouth is full and lively, with good length.

  6. Chateau Andrea, Graves, 2014

    Graves, in Bordeaux, is reputedly the oldest vine growing region in the country and benefits not only from coarse gravel typical of the area, which stores heat from the sun in the day to keep the vines warmer at night. But also from large pine forests that protect the vineyards and the river Garonne to the east, which acts as a thermal regulator.

    Smooth and silky in the mouth with soft tannins and long finish. Délicieux!

  8. Valpolicella Classico Ripasso, Lenotti Estate, 2016
    Rating:
    100% of 100

    The Lenotti ‘Le Crosare’ Valpolicella Ripasso is the result of the highest quality Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grape varieties, coming from the classic area of Valpolicella north of Verona. The winemaking process has a brief “ripasso” (re-passing) on the grape skins of the Amarone which gives this red extra body and flavour.

    It is a well-structured wine, intense ruby red colour with a bouquet that is fine and intense. Dry and savoury in the mouth it is full bodied and velvety. Drinking very well now although it has the potential to improve if cellared 4-5 years after harvest. Highly recommend by the Le Bon Vin team.

    An Organic wine that pairs well with Tuscan appetisers, red meat and game.

  12. Barolo, Sacco, 2013

    Often considered one of Italy's greatest wines, Barolo is definitely one of the most famous and a must try for it's classic tar and roses aromas. This Barolo from the Rocca estate is a classic, dry and austere, autumnal Nebbiolo from this famous Piemonte region. It will delight with its intense bouquet of mature red fruit and tobacco and the ethereal "Tar and Roses" of classic mature Barolo. It is at the lighter end of the Barolo spectrum and fully mature, so expect a more gamey style well suited to roast pheasant, aged beef and other fine meat courses.
