Wines on Tasting in Weybridge 16.07.16

%o July 2016



2014 Domaine Fournillon Chablis
Chablis under £20.00 and delicious!!

A wonderfully well balanced and rounded Chablis, with crisp notes of green apples. While on the palate the freshness continues and some lovely hints of minerality and even more green apples and hints of pear giving you a long finish and a zippy acidity.
£16.99/btl
2 for £30.00
Case of 12 £150.00 (£12.50/btl!)

2010 First Drop Wines Pintor Tempranillo
Another great wine from our favourites, this time from Barossa and using Tempranillo, aged in oak, it's like an Aussie Rioja Gran Reserva!!

The trick with this wine is that guys judged the oak so carefully that they allow the fruit to shine through uninterrupted. This time, in the mind-blowing 2010 vintage, the recipe is 50% new French, 20% new American, 30% old French and all for 20 months of ageing.

It was rated 90 points in Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate

'Medium to deep garnet-purple in colour, the 2010 Pintor Tempranillo offers up aromas of black raspberries and blueberry preserves with hints of baking spices and menthol. Medium-bodied, it brings a good amount of warm red berry, spice and earthy flavors to the glass along with refreshing acid and a light grip of tannins before finishing long with good persistence. Drink it now to 2018.'

£19.99/btl
Case of 6 £90.00 (£15/btl!)

See you over the weekend!
