Informal Wine Tasting, 5th December
*Another date added!*
As the nights draw in we have selected a beautiful little collection of wines for you to try, each one perfectly suited to the season. At an informal gathering downstairs at our little bakery in lovely Neal's Yard, Victoria Sharples our Head of Wine will take you through the characteristics, the backgrounds and the nuances of each of the seven wines.
You will start with our own Crémant, a stunning, elegant and fine glass of bubbles to take you into the festive season. Then moving on to our absolute favourite, go-to white - Olivier Pithon's P'tit Pithon Blanc. We are Olivier's sole importer to the UK, and so this is a brilliant opportunity to experience a wine that you will not find elsewhere. The last of the whites is the true jewel in our crown - our Boulevard Napoleon Grenache Gris 2015, rich, textural and complex. This is the wine that we make ourselves in our little medieval winery in the Minervois, France, and we are delighted that it has received much critical acclaim on both sides of the Channel.
You may be surprised to see rosé at a winter tasting, but we are firmly of the opinion that it must not be confined to Summer. This is a subject particularly close to Victoria's heart, she will tell you more...! And on to the reds, our St. JOHN Mâcon is plush, vibrant and just so easy to drink - a perfect all-rounder; then a beauty from Chateau Lascaux, their first ever no-sulphur wine (learn about why this matters), elegant and earthy. And finally, our brand new Boulevard Napoleon Cab Franc/Syrah - it has been five years since we last made a Cab Franc, as for all that time our winemaker Benjamin decreed that the grapes were of insufficient quality. Not so in 2017! The wait is worth it.
Full of wine and knowledge (what better things are there?!) you'll be out of there in time for a little dinner somewhere perhaps.
Bottles purchased on the night will be sold at a 15% discount; perfect for all that festive entertaining.
