Domaine Lavantureux Frères Chablis AOC 2016

Crisp Light Whites,12.5%

This is a lovely unoaked Chardonnay displaying classic Chablis characteristics - apple and lemon, minerality and floral notes; fresh and light yet really smooth texture and a long, long finish. Delicious!

Domaine de Maucaillou Margaux AC 2015

Smooth Elegant Reds,13%

Classic Left Bank Bordeaux from one of the most prestigious appellations, Margaux. The finesse, smoothness and refined fruity aromas make Margaux the most feminine appellation of the Médoc

Vincent Gaudry Sancerre AC 'Cigale' 2017

Crisp Light Whites,12.5%

A wine of contrasts - relatively full-bodied yet crisp & light, subtle yet full of flavours. Bio-dynamic to express the unique terroir, it is a very classy Sancerre. Perfect match for seafood and fish dishes, spring vegetables and goat's cheese

Domaine des Pasquiers Gigondas AC 2018

Rich Spicy Reds,14%

This wine has been described as a Gigondas that's capable of embarrassing many Chateauneuf du Papes. It's beautifully perfumed; the concentrated and complex flavours do not disappoint either

Château Gaby 'Princess Gaby' Canon-Fronsac AC 2016

Smooth Elegant Reds,13%

More fruit forward style of Canon-Fronsac than big sister wine, Château Gaby, especially on the palate; a right bank Bordeaux Merlot-dominant wine from an excellent vintage, balanced, with gentle tannins, a medium body & smooth texture

Domaine Thibert Pouilly Vinzelles AOC 'Les Longeays' 2015

Rich Creamy Whites,13%

Les Longeays is to be granted Premier Cru status and this really is a Premier Cru wine - complex but with crisp freshness, this is a very smooth and elegant white Burgundy with good structure and a very tasty finish. Citrus fruits, green apples and pears combine beautifully with marzipan and some spice

TastingNotes



This French Classics mixed case showcases three red and three white French wines (two bottles of each), all of which are classics - and  all from my list. I never include any cheap "fillers".

French wine sales in the UK have fallen over the last twenty years or so as the "New World" improved its wine offering and its marketing. But there is no denying that France can still produce some fabulous and very recognisable wines.

It was difficult to narrow down my choice but in the end I have included a Left Bank Bordeaux (Cabernet Sauvignon dominant), a Right Bank Bordeaux (Merlot dominant), a Chablis and a Sancerre and others. See above for a summary or click on each wine for more details.


If you would prefer a case of whites or reds or a case of six of these wines, contact me by email. Or check out my other mixed cases.

Santé!
