Dom. Paul Mas 'Arrogant Frog' Viognier 2015 Where most viogniers from Northern Rhone fade in the first 3-5 years of life the amazingly well priced 'Arrogant Frog' has kept its wits while those more serious wines have lost the plot. The success of this wine lies in its' closure; the screwcap has saved it and preserved much of the youthfulness and vivacity. Colour is straw yellow, lively acids and lots of honeyed notes mingle in a generous mid-palate. A wine that is welcome poolside or tableside. Serve well chilled in the tropical climate.
Dom. de Coussergues Burgundy Chardonnay 2015 This is one of the best value for money Chardonnay's I have had for a while. Blind tasted I would argue New World wine. Stone fruit, papaya, apricots and just a joy to drink. If it cost any more then the fun would erode away quickly. Serve it slightly cooler than normal and it will warm your heart for sure.
This 100% Chardonnay produced on the hillsides of Saint Georges d’Orques has a light straw colour, a fresh bouquet of zesty yellow citrus fruit. Ripe and full flavoured with a rich and creamy texture, round and perfectly balanced by a fresh lemon acidity with a crisp, clean and long finish.
Domaine Henri Villamont, recognizable by the famous des Guettes tower and a typical winery located in the heart of the village of Savigny les Beaune. This magical place, surrounded by high walls and premier cru vineyards is unique in Burgundy. With an area of 2,400 m2 and a capacity of up to 4,000 barrels, these are huge and exceptionally high cellars of the most famous of Burgundy. A large number of world famous names of Burgundy are produced here: Chassagne Montrachet, Chambolle Musigny , Meursault, Pommard, Savigny les Beaune and Nuits Saint Georges.
This Chardonnay has light yellow color. Powerful aromas of white flowers toast and ripe yellow fruit. Wine with an excellent finish and a slight hint of wood. Ideal as an aperitif and with salad, fish ,mussels, seafood, white meat and goat cheese.
From the Premier Grand Cru Sauternes property of Chateau Guiraud, more well known for it's outstanding dessert wines, G de Chateau Guiraud is produced from a 15 hectare parcel of vines on the estate especially dedicated to the production of this dry white wine. The vines are planted to a density of 6600 vines per hectare and to the proportion of 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Semillon. The fruit is picked by hand at maximum ripeness. The wine is fermented in oak barrels previously used for the Grand Cru and maturation also takes place in oak barrels for up to 9 months, with regular stirring on the lees.
Since the 2012 vintage, this outstanding white Bordeaux has been carefully selected and blended by the team at Château Clinet (Pomerol). The vineyard is situated at the highest point of the Gironde region, between Sauternes and Saint-Emilion. The clay and limestone terroir, the orientation of the vines and the altitude (145m) combine to produce stellar white wines. Produced from 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Semillon in stainless steel vats, with low-temperature maceration. An appetizing pale gold colored wine, with a platinum glow. Mouth-watering scents of candy, boiled sweets are lifted by blossom, lime, and mature white-fleshed fruits. In the mouth, the first impression comes from the fleshy, creamy texture. Then the white and zingy citrus fruits step in, seasoned by cardamone and saffron threads.
