2002 Bollinger Grande Année (£160)
2002 Vilmart et Cie Coeur de Cuvee (£160)
2009 Pol Roger Winston Churchill JEROBOAM
2012 Pol Roger Winston Churchill JEROBOAM (Derwin – for reasons that are obvious to him)
2013 Mountford Liaison Riesling from New Zealand (Christian) at £19.95 – Botrytis gives this wine a complex palate which is a touch sweeter than off-dry on the palate. We bought this over from New Zealand for a customer and added a couple of extra cases for the shop. Tuck in while you can, unlikely to reappear. Perfect chilled summer garden wine.
2018 Dageuneau Buisson Renard (£95) – completing the trio of wines we have from Dagueneau (Loire Sauvignon Blanc)
2020 Cantele Negroamaro Rosato – Amanda and I both tasted this recently and it simply does everything you want a summer rose to do. It completes the wines we have from Cantele. All we need is the sun to appear and the temperature to rise. £12.50.
2018 Lanzerac Pinotage (£13.50) – good quality South African Pinotage at an affordable price.
2017 Lanzerac Cabernet Sauvignon (£13.50) – ditto for Cabernet Sauvignon.
2018 Franco Conterno Langhe Nebbiolo (£23.50) – already a repeat seller for us (Russell) and we’ve only had it for a few days so tuck in. Sits nicely between Marco Porello and Mascarello.
2016 Giacomo Fenocchio Barolo Bussia (£49) – proper Barolo from one of the great vineyards and a very good producer.
