Three wines at pleasing prices to unearth
As you don’t always feel like opening those bottles of wine with a higher price tag, it’s important to have some bottles in your cellar that you don’t mind opening on a rainy Tuesday evening. So here are some examples of wines that won’t break the bank:
- Lune d’Argent 2021 from Clos des Lunes (€10.80 for 6 bottles instead of €12 for 1): This brilliant dry white wine comes from land that’s found in the Sauternes AOC (but as this appellation only allows sweet wines, it’s classed as a generic Bordeaux). The owner of the domain is none other than Olivier Bernard (who also owns the amazing Domaine de Chevalier).
- Collines Rhodaniennes cuvée L 2021 from Laurent Combier (€9.90 for 6 bottles instead of €11): A wine made from young Syrah vines planted on terrasses on a granite terroir and grown according to organic methods just like the rest of this 60-hectare domain, which has been a pioneer in organic agriculture since 1970.
- Bourgueil Jour de Soif 2019 from Domaine de Bel Air (€12.60 for 6 bottles instead of €14 for 1): This beautiful purple Bourgueil releases flavourful notes of red fruits and violets. Its fine tannins and long, delicate finish mean that it will always go down well (pun intended).
Three Burgundy gems
There are always plenty of little Burgundy gems to discover. Here are just a few of our current favourites:
- Marsannay Vieilles Vignes 2018 from Dominique Laurent (€24.30 for 6 bottles instead of €27): A white Marsannay perfectly crafted by Dominique Laurent. Head of one of the most precise traders in Burgundy, he has been known for the precision and finesse of his wines.
- Givry Clos de Mortières 2020 from Domaine de la Ferté (€25.20 for 6 bottles instead of €28 for 1): This Givry comes from Domaine de la Ferté, property of the Devillard family which also owns Château de Chamirey and Somaine des Perdrix. The vineyard here is a small jewel of a few hectares.
- Volnay Ez-Blanches 2020 from Domaine Terres de Velle (€34.20 for 6 bottles instead of €38): From a small domain of six hectares, this Volnay is precise and balanced. It also possesses a great elegance and highlights all that its terroir has to offer.
Three classic Bordeaux
To conclude this selection, let’s discuss the Bordeaux available. These are just three classics that can be found in the sale:
- Château de Ferrand 2015, Grand Cru Classé from Saint-Emilion (€32.40 for 6 bottles instead of €36 for 1): A Saint-Emilion Grand Cru that is known for its elegance, balance and beautiful ripeness. It’s absolutely superb after several years ageing in your cellar!
- Château Haut Bages Libéral 2018, 5ème Grand Cru Classé located in Pauillac (€39.90 for 6 bottles instead of €42): A fine wine for ageing from a biodynamic, prestigious Médoc terroir. It counts Château Latour and Château Pichon among its illustrious neighbours.
- Château Olivier 2019, Cru Classé from Graves (€26.10 for 6 bottles instead of €29): The jewel of this Bordeaux Cru Classé (Pessac-Léognan) which can easily be left in the cellar to age for many years to acquire its silky texture and develop its smooth character. A very seductive wine!
