To whet your appetite I have highlighted just a few of the wines included below.
From France we have;
Les Hauts de Lynch-Moussas 2010 (€21.00 down from €33.00), from Château Lynch-Moussas this excellent 2nd wine has benefited from the meteoric upward rise of the whole estate. Quality has never been so high.
Les Charmes de Kirwan 2007 (€24.99 down from €36.49), excellent 2nd wine of famous Irish Wine Geese property Château Kirwan. The 2007 is aromatic, lighter in style than the 2006 and very approachable.
Sénéchaux Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2010 (€33.99 down from €43.49), from the Lynch-Bages stable, this is a superbly well-made wine from first rate vineyards that stands out as one of Châteauneuf's finest wines. “Highly Recommended” by Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate.
Italy is equally well represented by the wines below;
Campogiovanni Brunello di Montalcino 2008 (€29.99 down from €41.49), structured and powerful with masses of savoury richness, this needs food and decanting and is a must for any fan of great Italian wine. Silver Medal winner at this year’s Decanter World Wine Awards.
Antinori Tignanello 2010 (€65.00 down from €87.49), simply put this is one of Italy's best and most celebrated red wines. In terms of style this is right up there with top Margaux's and St.Julien's if not a little richer and darker. “Highly Recommended” by Wine Spectator Magazine.
Musella Amarone Riserva 2008 (€35.00 down from €50.49), this is top class Amarone is from one of the great houses and a founding member of the Amarone elite known as the Twelve Families. Rich, concentrated and packed with flavour. . “Highly Recommended” by Wine Spectator Magazine.
We are also very lucky to obtain an allocation of an Iconic California Cabernet,
Clos du Val, Stag's Leap Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 (€65.00 down from €87.49) is elegant and opulent. Aged in French oak for 24 months, the wine is full bodied and accented with complex flavours of black fruit, chocolate, and dried herbs. Silver Medal winner at this year’s Decanter World Wine Awards.
To finish out my selection I am going to recommend Duorum Port Vintage 2007 (€43.00 down from €51.99) a brilliant new vintage Port from legendary winemaker José Maria Soares Franco, Incredibly rich with masses of sweet black fruit. “Highly Recommended” by Wine Enthusiast Magazine.
