Grape Expectations

May 2018

Our Master Sommelier Jean-Michel Deluc, former Sommelier of the Ritz, has selected you a unique combination this month.

Domaine Bousquet - Hunuc 2017 organic

Mendoza (Argentine)

The Bousquet family, who found this remarkable terroir in 1990, originally hail from the Carcassonne region of France. They've relocated and are now completely at home in the altitudes of the Uco Valley, in their own little corner of Tupungato. Malbec is king here, with the altitudes allowing for a long, slow ripening period, resulting in fruity, structured and refreshing wines!

Las Ninas - Mapuche blanc 2017

Colchagua (Chili)

A new addition to Mapuche's range, this white wine is a gem! The vineyards are located almost directly between the ocean and the Andes mountains, helping the grapes to combine intense sunshine with the freshness of the ocean. Styled on the wines of Bordeaux but with a more obvious fruit profile, thanks to the unique climate. Perfect as an aperitif or to pair with white meats and fish!

The Gazette

Spring: the season that never seems to end. Whilst the constant showers can drag on, there’s plenty of sunshine as well and it seems the perfect season to get everything in balance in our lives before the summer fun begins.

This month we wanted to take you on a journey to new horizons, new cultures and new discoveries. Whether it’s Chile, Australia, the United States, Spain or South Africa, there’ll be something for everyone along the way!

Hop aboard and as always, happy tasting!
