MAISON ROCHE DE BELLENE VIEILLES

VIGNES BOURGOGNE CHARDONNAY

lemon citrus and toast, with a mineral underpinning.

JEAN-MAX ROGER CUVÉE

LES CAILLOTTES SANCERRE 2016

AC

This is a perennial winner. Consistently crafted in a

classic style, this Sauvignon Blanc will offer all the

characteristic charm and beauty of Sancerre. Look

for aromas and flavours of asparagus, gooseberry,

grapefruit and smoky flint. You will also encounter the

region’s remarkable lively acidity and refined mineral

undertone. Enjoy this with seafood or herbed chicken.

RHÔNE

CHÂTEAU DE BEAUCASTEL COUDOULET

DE BEAUCASTEL BLANC 2015

AC Côtes du Rhône

(Famille Perrin)

TASTING NOTE: Always successful, this blend is

based on Marsanne with viognier and a little clairette.

Both full-bodied and refreshing, with good acidity

and a beautiful wrapped texture. Less austere than

usual. Very good value for the price. Score:

CAVE DE TURCKHEIM HENGST

PINOT GRIS 2012

AC Alsace Grand Cru

TASTING NOTE: Gentle notions of pear emanate

from the glass. The palate is equally gentle: ripe pear

fruit, balanced by lovely lemon freshness. There is

an arresting interplay of residual sweetness and zesty

acidity at the core. However, the full spectrum of

glorious pear fruit becomes fully expressed on the

incredibly long finish. This has immense depth and

will hold its poise for a few years yet. Drink now

through 2025. Score:

TRIMBACH RIESLING 2015

AC Alsace

TASTING NOTE: Bright straw-green. Peony,

mirabelle and mint on the enticing nose. Crisp and

fresh in the mouth, with very high but harmonious

acidity nicely shaping the ripe flavors of peach and

lychee; is there just a trace of super-ripe grapes

thrown in the blend here? Manages the neat trick of

tasting lemony fresh and very light on its feet while

delivering sneaky concentration and depth.

Outstanding entry-level Riesling wine. Drinking

window: 2017-2026. Score:

MAISON AMBROISE

SAINT-ROMAIN 2013

AC

TASTING NOTE: Pronounced orange citrus

character – almost as if there has been some skin

contact here. Dry, fragrant and expressive. Really

lovely. Drink: 2015-2019. Score:

17 out of 20
