Chateau Dereszla Dry Furmint 2013 (1x 75cl)

Hungary is well known for its sweet wines but dry wines from Furmint are becoming more popular. The grapes are harvested earlier that for their sweeter brethren but some characteristics remain. A medium bodied wine that’s like a fruit salad in a glass. Citrus fruit, apple, pink grapefruit and melon are all present alongside a lovely mineral streak. Refreshing acidity keeps it all crisp. A great aperitif.

Champagne Pierre Bertrand Brut Premier Cru NV - July 2017 Decanter review

Decanter review - individual reviewers' comments

This is quite some Champagne and remarkable for the price. The varietal mix is equal thirds of the classic trio of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Grapes are grown only on vineyards of Premier Cru villages (you'd easily clear £30 a bottle for this privilege normally) on the Coteaux de Cumières and Hautvillers in the Marne Valley, yielding great intensity and concentration. 

One expects exhilarating acidity and and citrus zing in almost any Champagne - this does these in spades - but what makes it really stand out are both the ripeness of fruit flavours and the delicate florality of the nose. Pierre Bertrand see that fruitiness as “damson and pear” while we at Exel thought more “peach and nectarine”; either way, this is one seriously fruity mouthful. Florally, the makers go with “hawthorn flower” and we are not botanically inclined to disagree. At 7g/l of dosage/residual sugar, this is a drier Brut, but the fruit ripeness adds an exciting extra sensation of sweetness. Finally, Pierre Bertrand are rightly proud of their mousse onctueuse – smooth mousse – and we concur: it makes for a truly delicious Champagne experience.


William Downie Gippsland Pinot Noir 2015 (1x 75cl)

Rich cherry, blackcurrant, blackberry and poached plum with clove, nutmeg and some floral notes. Dense and concentrated. The palate shows cigar box and forest floor with more dark fruits. Fine but present tannin. Some oak showing at this early stage. Textured and long.

Valdespino Manzanilla Deliciosa En Rama half bottle (1x 37.5cl)

Intense saline aromas, with rich concentrated notes of yeast, almonds and apple. Great texture, grip and minerality.
