We are pleased to share an Aÿ Grand Cru Champagne from Henri Giraud, a wonderfully mature 2eme Cru Classe from Margaux and 2 sumptuous vintages of Chateau Saint Pierre from Pomerol.
Henri Giraud, Hommage à François Hémart, Äy Grand Cru NV
£1041.76 per dozen inc VAT, equivalent price per magnum £86.81
Made only from Grand Cru fruit in the exceptional village of Aÿ (arguably the best village amongst the Grands Crus); this fabulous holding provides the most fantastic ripe fruit, resulting in lovely rich styles. As a small privately owned house, the Girauds oversee the whole production process, skillfully crafting their individualistic Champagnes to create incredible intensity, class and balance. Robert Parker awarded this 91 points.
“Bright and lustrous pale gold with a fine lively mousse of tiny, pin-prick bubbles rising persistently. The palate combines an open, lively, spontaneous and refreshing modern Champagne style with more classic notes. Notes of yeast, anise, stone fruit and dried apricot all combine in a long, complex finish.”
70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay. A real gem of a Champagne, and extraordinarily well priced.
Château Lascombes, 2ème Cru Classé Margaux 1996
£1200 per dozen inc VAT, equivalent price per magnum £100.00
A Second Growth wine at an unbeatable price! Lascombes has seen a steady rise in quality after vast investment in its cellars and an increase in its estate, with the addition of other plots to its vineyard area, bringing it up to its current 116 hectares.
“Plenty of time in bottle has seen this develop into a fully mature and wonderfully aromatic, “Lunchtime Claret”. An elegant wine with lovely perfumes, it has lost its childhood austerity and seen its tannins soften. The aromas have acquired a sweet red-fruit nature that belies a nice depth of flavour. High quality, mature wine at this price is a rare find.” 89/100 David Allen MW
Château Saint Pierre, Pomerol
An exclusive parcel of fabulous wine from a brilliant small Pomerol estate! This is a tiny property, producing just 1200 cases a year (about one third of Petrus’ production), lies at the heart of Pomerol, just a stone throw from Trotanoy, Vieux Chateau Certain and Le Pin. These are classic, traditional, elegant Pomerols – priced at a genuine steal!
Château Saint Pierre, Pomerol 2009
£805.19 per dozen inc VAT, equivalent price per magnum £67.10
Garnet colour. Pronounced aromas of fruitcake, spice and ripe, plummy fruit. The palate is soft, rich with plummy fruit flavours and notes of chocolate and a liquorice bite. The finish is long and balanced acidity keeps it fresh.
Château Saint Pierre, Pomerol 2001
£717.74 per dozen inc VAT, equivalent price per magnum £59.81.
Maturity has brought the classic Pomerol earthiness of this wine to the fore, aromas of prune and dark plum mingle with liquorice and forest floor notes on an elegant, well-structured palate. The wine retains a good freshness and its flavours lasts well.
