This box contains 6 wines that we think will sort out all your Christmas day drinking needs! Starting off with a delightful sparkling wine from the south coast of England! 3 wines to pair with the Christmas roast, a big post-dinner red to wash it down. Last off we have a Late bottle vintage port to pair with the cheeseboard.
What's in the box?
Langham, Culver, NV - Stone Fruit, Chamomile, Mineral
All fruit for this wine was sourced from their single site in rural Dorset. The grapes for the base vintage were picked in October 2020 and gently pressed in whole bunches. Primary fermentation, with indigenous yeasts, took place in a combination of stainless-steel tanks and used oak barrels, followed by complete malolactic fermentation. Following 7 months of élevage, the final blend was bottled and left to age on lees for a minimum of 14 months. Rich yet fresh this is top stuff
Domaine Bouard Bonnefoy, Bourgogne Blanc, 2021 -Elegant, Flinty, Green Apple
Burgundy / White / Chardonnay / Sustainable
Pure Chardonnay grown in southeast-facing estate vineyard (lieu-dit) ‘Plantelonge,’ just east of villages-level vineyard ‘Les Pierres’ in Chassagne-Montrachet. Hand-harvested are pressed in an upright wooden press, cranked by hand. Fermented on indigenous yeasts in French oak barrels. Aged for one year in barrel, with 20% new oak.
Domaine De La Bonne Tonne, Morgon Grands Cras, 2020 - Cherry, Perfumed, Liquorice
Morgon AOC , Beaujolais / Red / Gamay / Organic
Planted in 1955, the vines sit on ancient alluvial terraces (old river bed) made of silica-rich clay and gravel soils – Le Grand Cras climat is located south of the AC down the Haut-Morgon and Côte du Py slopes. The semi-carbonic maceration lasted about three weeks before spending ten months in 228 and 400ltr old barrels, and another six months in concrete vats
Domaine Chevalier, Le Pessac-Leognan, 2019 -Ripe Fruits, Sophisticated, Balanced
Pessac-Leognan AOC / Red / Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc / Sustainable
Very Graves. A little brother of Dom de Chevalier. Fantastic value! A delicious left bank Bordeaux, brimming with classic flavours!
The plots are harvested and vinified separately. In the winery the grapes are destemmed and fermented. Finally, it ages for 20 months in French oak barrels before being bottled by hand and unfiltered. Elegant and vibrant Syrah that will give Northern Rhone a good run for its money.
DOWS Late Bottle Vintage, 2017 -Dried Fruit, Chocolate, Prune
This LBV has been ageing within in barrel for years, this means that the wine has developed as much as it ever will and is perfect for drinking! Pair with some post-dinner cheese or simply quaff it down without!
