Chateau Moulin du Terrier Bordeaux Rouge 2012

Chateau Moulin du Terrier Bordeaux Rouge 2012

  • Mature and ready to go right away with Sunday roasts or classic cheese boards.
  • Winner of a prestigious Gold Medal at the Concours General Agricole.
  • Perfectly balanced Claret at the peak of its powers.

It is always best to decant red wines from Bordeaux 30 minutes or so before serving allowing the wine to take on some air and really bringing it to life. The base for this wine is Cabernet Sauvignon giving the wine plenty of ripe blackcurrant fruit and lovely ripe tannins. A 20 / 20 split of Merlot and Cabernet Franc completes the blend with the former bringing juiciness to the palate and aromas of cherry and the latter peppery spice and an overall finesse to give the wine a complete feel.

Etienne Pelissie

Winemaker: Etienne Pelissie

Country: France

The family estate is located in Gironde, 50 kilometres south east of Bordeaux and 10 kilometres from La Réole, on the slopes of the north bank of the Garonne. Here, the vineyard benefits from strong sunlight in summer, contributing to the ripeness of the grapes and the creation of a wine of exceptional quality with unique flavours.

Castelfeder Lagrein Klassische Linie DOC 2013

Castelfeder Lagrein Klassische Linie DOC Italian Red Wine

Type: Lagrein

If you relish a challenge and love to show off, then research how to pronounce the name of this blinder correctly. Buy a bottle and introduce it (and your newfound esoteric knowledge) at a dinner party. It's Italian and quite brilliant.

Saint Amour Chateau de Belleverne 2015

Domaine de la Porte du Paradis St Amour French Red Wine

Type: Gamay

A definitive favourite flavour. This has a heavenly scent of peonies and irises, buoyed by a ripe texture with hidden depths of character, smooth rich and satisfying. A polished gem.

Chateau Tour de Bardes Saint Emilion Grand Cru 2013

Chateau Tour de Bardes French Red Wine

Type: Merlot

The wines of Saint Emilion are famous the world over but finding great value is a tough ask. We tasted over 50 wines in this price bracket and Bardes was the stand out wine. Packed with juicy plum flavours. Aged gracefully and drinking superbly now.
