Wine on tasting in Weybridge 22.07.17

Friday, 21 July 2017 09:50:08 Europe/London

On tasting this weekend, and if you like, why not to have a glass in. We possibly going have some rain this weekend, but rose brings sunshine, let’s hope:
 
Wey tasting
 
2016 Cheval Gris Chateau L'Ermitage £10.99 p/b or two for £20.00!
90% Grenache 10% Carignan. This is a lovely pale rosé produced in the Carmargue at the delta of the Rhone river. The terroir here is unique with pools of salted water and lots of sand in the soils, and vineyards more like dunes! As a result the wines from this region have a great mineral finesse backed up by notes of white peach and mandarine. 
 
2015 Bourgogne Passetoutgrain, Domaine Daniel Rion £14.99/ Mix 6 £12.74/ Mix 12 £11.99
In the late seventies, his sons joined the business, bringing new parcels of vines with them. A new winery was built with a larger cellar and a tasting room. Today, the domaine consists of eighteen hectares of vineyards with eighteen appellations in six villages of the Côte des Nuits and the Hautes-Côtes: Prémeaux, Nuits Saint Georges, Vosne Romanée, Chambolle Musigny, Vougeot and Marey-les-Fussey. The estate’s old vines, from 25 to 65 years old, were selected for the quality of their fruits: small berries with thick skins that guarantee deeply colored, complex wines with refined tannins. The small output of the estate allows the winemaker to select grapes of great quality, naturally concentrated and balanced. New plantings are carried out with seedlings selected for the small size of the berries they will produce.
This is a light, fruity and easy-going Pinot Noir perfect to drink by itself especially with this weather.
 
And we have great Barolo offer – pop to the shop and find out!
See you over the weekend!

EM wine on tasting
 
Well, the winebar is well and truly stonkingly open – with plenty of you thirsty lot down enjoying a drink over these hot months. As ever, we’ve rolled the bar menu round to three new superb wines – find details below – and kept up with our usual bits and bobs – charcuterie….cheese…
 
Anyway, hope to see you this weekend – we are dithering at present over opening some of the stunning Nemea from Bizios in Greece. It’s been a bit of a Med kick for EM for the last couple of weeks, with Cyrus One (again, Greek) rocking the Popup two weeks ago and  Portugal being celebrated right left and centre with Matt Bonner’sThe Portuguese Fine Wine Company showing off some serious gear on Wednesday.
 
And next month, Mediterranean Popup on the 16th August. Four courses, same popup format – just running across the Med from west to east. Or east to west. Either way, it’s the Med.
 
Right lads and ladies – no more time for chitchat, here is this weeks menu:

Wines on Tasting in Church Street 22.07.17

Friday, 21 July 2017 03:29:29 Europe/London

R2 tasting

 

2016 Bramble Lane Sauvignon Blanc Semillon, £11.99 per bottle, or £9.59 in a mixed case. 

This is the classic blend from Margaret River -it is pale green in colour, with classic aromas of succulent Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. It has delicate floral aromas and a hint of fresh herbs, The palate is flinty and dry, with an explosive first impact of passionfruit, lime and lemon zest, followed by a creamy middle palate with a fine and lengthy finish.

 

2015 Originale Rosso Neropasso Mabis £12.99p/b or or two for £23

With all this rain around we've been seduced away from whites and decided to show off an excpetionally good value lucious red from the Veneto. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Corvina this wine is. Intense ruby red with a bouquet of spice with hints of cherry, black cherry and plum compote. It has a fine and velvety palate, full of lucious fruit  that is persistent and then with soft tannins at the end.

Due to meticulous work in the vineyard to ensure even ripening, whole bunches are harvested by hand at optimum ripeness and then they undergo strict selection to ensure they are 'thin' enough (air between the grapes within the bunch) to allow a steady drying process before crushing and fermentation. This gentle process gives the wine wonderful concentration and complexity.  

 

And....if we're feeling really generous we might open a cheeky Greek treat!

R1 tasting

 

This week we're going a little off piste with our grape variieties.  First up with a white from Ribeiro in North West Spain.
 
2016 Atlantis Treixadura
From the granitic slopes of the valleys that follow the Minho river comes this unctuous white with floral notes and a fresh persistent fruit.
£13.99p/d or 6 for £70
 
Next up is one of my favourite grape varieties with the following wine:
 
2013 Savoire Faire D'Autrefois Mourvedre Pays D'Oc
Selected from two vineyard plots in the southernmost part of the Rhône valley, Savoir-Faire d'Autrefois showcases the winemakers skill in taming the wild Mourvèdre grape.   This barbecue friedly number offers an intriguing nose of tobacco, cloves and leather, followed by a luxuriant yet sleek and supple palate. Dark cherries and chocolate are interwoven with fine French oak and supported by firm tannins.
£12.99 or 2 for £25

So we have been busy looking for our perfect Summer Rosé. I think we've now found it: Back in the late 90's, Tom Bove, ex-owner of Miraval, bought La Mascaronne in Provence but kept this very much under the radar.  He has invested considerable time in re-planting the vineyards and the quality shines through in what is now, our new favourite Provencal Rosé;
 
2016 Provence Rose Chateau La Mascaronne £16.99/6 Pack- £85
A classic Cinsault and Grenache blend, beautiful pale colour yet with intense nose of peach and lemon with large depth of flavour and remarkably long finish. This smooth, ripe wine comes from organic grapes grown in clay and stone soil that adds a mineral edge. Spice balances with citrus and red-plum fruits to give a lively wine with a perfumed aftertaste.
 
2015 Giano Dolcetto Merlot Dezzani - £12.99/ Mix 6- £11.04/ Mix12- £10.39
Dezzani made this wine as symbol of tradition and innovation, past and future marrying two different grapes, that are complementary. Dolcetto with its own personality and powerful tannins gives a lively red colour tending to violet, scents of red fruits typical of Piedmont Region, while Merlot goes together with the flavours of the first in its simpler being, which makes it suitable for everyone. Velvety and smooth to the tongue, it is a pleasant glass to drink on its own, as aperitif, or paired with first courses, barbecue and cheeses.

2015 Domaine Alexandre, Petit Chablis £17.99/Btl

The property is in the small village of La Chapelle-Vaupelteigne just north of Chablis itself. It is Olivier Alexandre and his father Guy who run it. The 13 hectares of vineyards are located around the village and in three other communes: Beines, Lignorelles and Villy. The wines are crisp, dry and without any oak. Shy on the nose with fresh lemon character, a good acidity and typical steeliness on the finish.
 
2014 Cairanne Cotes du Rhone Les Six Boutinot £16.99/Btl

6 varieties, some familiar, others less so, combine beautifully to make one superb Cairanne! In an appellation often dominated by just two varieties, ‘Les Six’ is a new style of Cairanne which, due to the ancient varieties of Carignan Noir (10%), Cinsault (10%) and Counoise (10%) included in the assemblage, is also a Cairanne whose heart holds dear the traditions of yesteryear. Les Six is all about elegance and the expression of six different grape varieties; soft red fruits gently seasoned with a touch of oak.

2014 Hoopla Chardonnay Yountville Napa Valley
A mild harvest allowed Lindsay Hoopes to pick the vineyard in two sections over a two week period naturally balancing refreshing citrus and apple notes of the earlier pick with more ripe pineapple and tropical fruits of the second. The flavour profile is bright, and crisp – like unoaked Chardonnays – while the mouthfeel is creamy and round – like other oaked counterparts. The proof is in the glass, a just right combination of heady fruit aromas, balanced, refreshing flavours and luscious finish.  It should certainly get your tail wagging.
£22.99p/b, 2 for £40 
 
2015 The Scoundrel Grenache Barossa Valley Magpie Estate
This wine was borne out of a love of Southern Rhone varietals between Rolf Binder, the master of Barossa and the Cambridge wine merchant Noel Young.  At a time when many growers were pulling up these vines, Noel and Rolf cherished them and now make a fantastic range of wines with this Grenache showing how elegant a wine it can be.
£14.99p/b, 6 for £75
