On the nose, the beautiful and elegant fruits give way to delicate notes of dry herbs with airy flavours of strawberry and blackcurrant. The palate is structured with fine tannins for a medium to long finish. It can be enjoyed at a barbecue, with lamb cutlets, white meat and slightly chilled with cheese. Drink now or keep in the cellar up to 2020+. 100% Cabernet Franc.
- BEL-AIR - MOULIN-À-VENT "LES BURDELINES" 2018
The nose is extremely complex with floral notes, dry leaves, and faded rose melding with some ripe black fruits. This wine is muscly and has long length on the palate. Try it with barbequed meat, sausages or meat cooked in sauce. It can be enjoyed in its youth by decanting it 30 minutes before serving or cellared up until 2026. 100% Gamay.
- CHATEAU DE BEL-AIR - LALANDE DE POMEROL 2014
On the nose, Château de Bel-Air presents notes of red fruit and floral aromas; on the palate, a harmonious balance between flesh and tannins means it can be enjoyed after just a few years of cellaring. A delicate wine that is a perfect partner for refined dishes. It can be drunk now or cellared until 2022+. 73% Merlot, 19% Cabernet Franc, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon.
- CLAU DE NELL - ANJOU - CABERNET FRANC 2017
The nose is fresh and floral with bright cherry and raspberry fruit. Expressive with some grippy tannins, but they are fine-grained and work well on the background of the bright raspberry and cherry fruit. There is a lovely focus here. You can drink it now by decanting it for 20 minutes or cellar up to 2026+. It goes well with charcuterie, lamb racks, beef and cow cheeses. 100% Cabernet Franc.
- CHATEAU CRU GODARD - COTE DE FRANCS BORDEAUX 2019

JEAN-LUC JAMET - CÔTE DU RHÔNE "L'ENCLAVE" 2019
The colour is deep red and purple. The nose is very present, floating aromas of violets, soaked black cherries, flint, smoke and a lovely savouriness all throughout. The palate is tender though driven and structured with plenty of voluptuous fruits. The final is clean and refreshing. Drink now or keep in the cellar up to 2028+. 100% Syrah
