Reds (2 of each)
DOMAINE AURELIAN VERDET, HAUTES-COTES DE NUITS - 2017 LE PRIEURE
100% Pinot Noir. This wine has an impeccable silky texture balancing weight and concentration with brightness and acidity in a long, graceful finish. The basket of flavours here is of red cherry leading to black fruits interlaced with seductive suggestions of herbal potpourri.
DOMAINE ELIAN DA ROS, COTES DU MARMANDAIS - 2016 ABOURIOU
90% Abouriou and 10% Merlot. Lean and crisp with juicy violet-scented black cherry fruit. It’s more pepper than tannin, more savoury than sweet, and with an agreeable prickle combined with earthy minerality that carries the wine easily over the tongue.
NACIENTE, MAULE - 2018 CARIGNAN
100% Carignan. The aromas are reminiscent of black fruits such as blueberry and blackberry, with sweet notes of vanilla and fresh tobacco. The palate offers very good structure and body, with flavours of dark chocolate, coffee and candied fruits. It has a long persistence and a great finish in the mouth.
