Grape Expectations

July 2018

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

Vini Coppi - Vinaccero Aleatico 2012 organic

IGP Puglia

What a lovely surprise this is!

I love the south of Italy and the wines made here from indigenous grape varieties; without them, the wines wouldn't have the same unique character. Soft, fruity and utterly charming with a dark, energetic feel. A delicious effort from the famous Vini Coppi, and I'm certain you'll love it as much as I have! From the sun-kissed fruit to the powdery tannins, this is a very complete wine.

Château d’Or et de Gueules - Les Pichounes 2016

AOP Costières de Nîmes

Mathieu Chatain is a real character.

His wines, and those of Diane de Puymorin, reflect his original personality but also portray his passion for wine and respect for the whole process. "Les Pichounes" is perhaps his most appealing cuvee, a wine to be enjoyed in youth, full of charm, fun and energy. Spicy and crisp yet velvety and soft, this will charm you without you realising it. A perfect wine to open with good friends around a summer barbecue!

The Gazette

Fond memories of being drenched by the Mediterranean sun, waves of crystal topaz lapping your toes, the beats of hits from summers past making their way through the winds. The mediterranean is, to many of us, a tale of summer holidays.

What better way to ring in July than with a theme dedicated to the marvels of the mediterranean? The birthplace of wine, rich in beautiful ingredients and rolling landscapes. Take a taste of the mediterranean in to your own home with this selection of wines.

Have a lovely summer!
