Chablis Premier Cru, Simonnet Febvre 2018
This vineyard is situated on the left bank of the Serein river and has an ideal south-westerly aspect. The soils of the left bank are less clay-like than those of the right bank. This wine is one of the most highly-rated left-bank Chablis. This is an excellent example of the characteristics of a Chablis wine: freshness, acidity, minerality and notes of flowers and fruit. Well-rounded and charming, this wine has a final note of minerality on the palate and is a good compromise between the acidity and fruit. It is generous, has a good length and is very typical of Chablis.

Nuits St. Georges ‘Les Cailles’ Bouchard Père et Fils 2014
The 2014 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Cailles 1er Cru comes from a single hectare of vines. It has a crisp, precise bouquet, with delicate violet petals scents filtering through the black cherry and raspberry fruit. The palate is very well balanced, offering lithe tannin, satin-like in texture and a harmonious, effervescent finish, where blood orange suffuses the blue fruit. Irresistible.
Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru “Les Chaillots” Louis Latour
The Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru “Les Chaillots” 2014 offers a bright and deep garnet-red colour. An intense nose of black cherry and undergrowth. On the palate, spices mixed with fruits, black currant, liquorice and nutmeg aromas. Beautiful tannins on the finish, followed by a nice length. Although it will age for 2-3 decades it is drinking perfectly at present.
