French Classics

Château du Gaby ~ Canon-Fronsac AOC 2002

Smooth Elegant Reds,13%

A beautifully developing 2002 Merlot-dominant Right Bank Bordeaux. Still full of fruit - damsons, ripe plums, mulberries etc – and sweet spices and fudge from the oak ageing; very smooth tannins

Domaine Thibert ~ Saint Véran AOC Champ Rond 2011

Rich Creamy Whites,13%

A lovely opulent Burgundy which drinks well on its own and is recommended for drinking with fish, seafood including scallops, foie gras, roast chicken, turkey, ham and pork

Vincent Gaudry ~ Sancerre AC 'Cigale' 2014

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

Yann Chave ~ Crozes Hermitage AC 2014

Smooth Elegant Reds,13%

Amazingly smooth and fruity Northern Rhône wine from Syrah grape; its elegance and balance are typical of the best Crozes Hermitage wines


View Details

Domaine Billaud-Simon ~ Chablis Premier Cru AOC Mont de Milieu 2015

Crisp Light Whites,13%

This is a classic Premier Cru Chablis, a lovely unoaked Chardonnay displaying apple and citrus fruits, minerality and floral notes; a hint of butteriness and a medium body yet crisp

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 Crozes Hermitage, a Chablis, a Sancerre and an amazing white Burgundy which is drinking beautifully now. 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!
