Following on from last year’s success we have once again collected three show-stopping bottles of exceptional wine perfect for enjoying over the Christmas period. We begin with the ‘Pierre Bertrand Champagne Premier Cru NV’ A sensational Champagne rated 98/100 by a Decanter tasting panel. This is an easy drinking medium bodied Champagne from Cumieres, In the Marne Valley. A deep copper/gold colour which is peachy and lush, explosively juicy but balanced by fresh lemony notes. Bottle aged for 6-8 years which is much longer than most NV champagnes on the market lends itself to a complexity and character unmatched by any product in this price range.
The next bottle we must talk about is the ‘Fenix Dombeya - 2017’, all the way from Haskell Vineyards in Stellenbosch, South Africa. Smooth and refined with bold flavours of rich fresh fruits and rose to a more serious tobacco, dark plum and blackcurrant leaf that lingers favourably in the aftertaste. A perfect red wine which pairs beautifully with Lamb, Beef and Red Meats as well as going beautifully with your after-dinner cheeses. Haskell wines are notoriously rare in the UK, and we believe we are possibly the only UK retailer to be selling this sensational wine this Christmas!
To complete this epic trio of sensational wines perfect for your Christmas we have the indomitable ‘Edizione Cinque Autoctoni 20 – 2018’ from Fantini. Now in its 20th year of production this excellent Italian red is going from strength to strength. Rated 99/100 by Luca Maroni for a third year in a row is quite the achievement. A deep ruby red wine with blackberry and cherry and an herbaceous minerality which is alluring as you sip, elements of cinnamon and cocoa help to round out the distinctive flavour. Velvety tannins are complemented by the savoury sweetness of the French oak all wine leaves a long smooth fruity finish with elegant mouth feel.
