Chante Cigale Chateauneuf Du Pape 2015 (1x75cl)

Domaine Chante Cigale is situated on the left bank of the Rhône, between Orange and Sorgues, on a variety of soils which contain a high proportion of ‘galets.’ These are the large stones of Châteauneuf-du-Pape which heat up during the day and release their heat at night, allowing the grapes to achieve maximum ripeness. The red is powerful, with defined fruit characters and supple tannins. Since taking over the running of the estate from his father over ten years ago, Alexandre Favier has transformed the quality of the wines, which now rank amongst the very best of the appellation.

Deep ruby in colour with a wonderful nose of spice and dark fruits this is a real winter warmer. The palate is rich and ripe with layers of fruit and spice supported by fine tannins.

Some of our suggestions for matching food to this wine are: warm cabbage salad with roquefort and peppered bacon, roast leg of lamb with mustard and red wine sauce or spiced venison steaks with red-cabbage confit and red-wine sauce.

Domaine & Maison Les Alexandrins Cote Rotie 2015 (1x75cl)

Awarded 91 points and a Highly Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their February 2018 edition review of Northern Rhone 2015 (see blue link below).

Maison Les Alexandrins Cote Rotie 2015 - February 2018 Decanter review

Domaine & Maison Les Alexandrins came into being with the collaboration of three figures of the Northern Rhone Valley: Nicolas Jaboulet, Guillaume Sorrel, and Alexandre Caso. They came together in 2012 when Nicolas Jaboulet (head of Maison Nicolas Perrin) and Guillaume Sorrel along with Alexandre Caso (who together founded Domaine Les Alexandrins in Mercurol) began working in Crozes-Hermitage for Maison Nicolas Perrin. Their shared knowledge of the terroir, and their appreciation of the great wines of their region quickly inspired them to go even further together.  From 2015, Maison Nicolas Perrin took a majority share in Domaine Les Alexandrins. Their collaboration made it possible to pursue the dream of Domaine Les Alexandrins – that of making Northern Rhone wines that embody pure classicism – and to expand on their reputation - already long acclaimed for quality across all the appellations of the Northern Rhone.

The vineyard of Côte Rôtie is located on the hills of the right bank of the Rhône river. The vineyard is located at an altitude ranging between 180 and 325 metres and is composed of 73 localities. The main stone is granite covered in places by schist but also sand and calcareous soils. For the most part, this wine comes from the southern part of the appellation; Côte Blonde and Coteau de Tupin. Domaines & Maison Les Alexandrins wished to make wines with great distinction but also with elegance and finesse rather than wines from the north that tend to be harder and more powerful. 

For the northern Rhone Valley, 2015 was a truly exceptional year, almost without precedent! After a mild, wet winter and particularly high temperatures in spring, summer brought a heatwave even hotter than 2003. Welcome rain arrived in abundance in mid-August, followed anew by glorious sunshine and a providential wind that guaranteed perfect sanitary conditions and a regular and rapid ripening of the grapes. And so the harvest benefited from optimum conditions during the first two weeks of September.

The grapes are cold-macerated before being fermented to increase the aromas of fruit. Maceration and fermentation for about 20 days with pumping-over for the first few days followed by punching-down. Ageing in 1-year-old barrels for 15 months.

This 2015 Côte-Rôtie stands out among the best. Dense and dark in colour, this wine expresses an intoxicating bouquet of fresh, floral, cold ash, black olive and ripe cherry notes. It has a lot of power and elegance. The mouth is balanced expressing a pretty structure. Dense and silky tannins, powerful and very aromatic finish.

This wine needs to be decanted at least an hour before serving. Drink in its youth. Slow roasted lamb is a great match for this wine.


Domaine Albert Belle Crozes-Hermitage Rouge Les Pierrelles 2015 (6 x 75cl)

This wine is made traditionally in closed temperature-controlled vats, the grapes are totally de-stemmed, there is daily pumping over and punching down, followed by a final warm maceration and a  three-week fermentation with indigenous yeast. It is aged entirely in oak barrels for 14 months, divided equally between old barrels of two to five years of age.

The Domain Albert Belle Crozes -Hermitage "Les Pierrelles" is  a beautiful deep red colour, with flashes of purple. As always, the nose is full and voluble. Intense red fruit complete the sweeter spice and candy notes. The boiled sweet notes then setting off the blackcurrant syrup and the raspberry. This wine is charming, flattering and generous. It is an invitation to immediate pleasure. The palate does not disappoint, it is soft and voluptuous. The tannins are silky. The finish is long, and well balanced, with no heaviness.

This Les Pierrelles cuvée is a promise of pleasure. It goes well with all red meat dishes, casseroles and roasts, and also with poultry and summer aperitifs.


Domaine De La Janasse Cotes Du Rhone 2016 (1 x 75cl)

In 1967, Aimé Sabon came back from his military service. He took over his father’s vines, who used to take his grapes to the wine cooperative. In 1973, Aimé built his own cellar. Domaine de la Janasse was born and named after the family farm that was in Courthézon, in the locality of “La Janasse”. Aimé was ambitious. He knew he had fabulous soil and he wanted to expand the estate by acquiring new plots. From 15 hectares at the very beginning, La Janasse has now reached more than 90 hectares.

This wine comes from a single plot located to the east of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, in the city of Courthézon. The vines are grown without pesticides or insecticides and  the manure used is natural. The land is worked without herbicide to maintain the health and flexibility of the soil. 

Featuring a beautiful structure, this Côtes-du-Rhône develops notes of fresh fruit (crushed strawberry, blackberry) on crisp, supported by a hint of liquorice. Moderately tannic, this wine retains its gluttony on grilled meat or fresh tomatoes pie. Drink within the next five years.


Domaine Des Bosquets Gigondas Le Lieu Dit 2011 (1x 75cl)

Deep ruby in colour with a subtle nose of ripe black fruit, soft liquorice, plum and stone fruits. In the mouth, it is racy and elegant. Thanks to its long ageing period, it has surprinsingly smooth and and mellow tannins and will drink well over the next 15 years.
