Château Boudigand 2015. C.B. (Comte de Bosredon)

  • I have rarely been impressed by the white wines of the Appellation, but this wine is a knock out. Fine gold colour; plenty of semillon on the nose; wonderfully focussed and sprightly fruit on the palate. Balanced, delicious, and great value.

Chablis 1ier Cru Montée de Tonnerre 2010 D. B. (Billaud-Simon)

  • Brilliant vintage, brilliant vigneron. Billaud-Simon makes wonderfully defined crsytalline Chablis, with great respect for the different terroirs. This, from one of the greatest premier crus, is simply the epitome of fine Chablis.

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Domaine Grand Veneur 2014 D.B. (Alain Jaume)

  • White Rhônes are under-appreciated in Britain, which is a shame, as they are distinctive, and are frequently both well-made and excellent value. This is a delicious example; water-pale in colour; fine elegant floral-lemony nose; full and ripe on the palate, with peach and honey notes balanced by excellent acidity, and a long nutty finish. Really fine wine.

Bourgogne Rouge Pinot Noir 2010.
D.B. (Ambroise)

  • 2010 was the finest Red burgundy vintage since 2005, and it shows even at this modest level. Classically structured, this generic wine could easily be a village wine, or better, in terms of quality. Fully mature in colour, limpid ruby; absolutely authentic Pinot nose with rotty/farmyard aromas; similar palate, persistent Pinot with a touch of austerity. Wonderful basic Burgundy at a fantastic price.

Savigny-les-Beaune 2014 A.C. F.B. (Girard)

  • Gorgeous southern red Burgundy from one of the finest vintages of the past ten years. Medium ruby/garnet colour; good Pinot character on the nose, with good depth and complexity, and hints of spice developing; fine concentration of Pinot fruit on entry; seamless, elegant and long.

Rioja Belezos 2013 D.O.C. Estate Bottled (Bodegas Zugober)

  • Nice and juicy uncomplicated Rioja. Good deep scarlet just maturing at the rim; healthy plum-and-cassis fruit on the nose; good gutsy Tempranillo character on the palate, with nice oaky notes.
