Our August selection emulates the perfect holiday: the whites take you on a tour of France, the reds will keep you cosy on chilly nights or cool over alfresco lunches, the bubbles echo your summer reading, providing a little education with your relaxation.
We have two vintages of the Maison Antech Grant Cuvee Brut – both the 2010 and the 2015. That earlier vintage is fascinating, having been aged on lees (with the yeast sediment) for much longer than is customary for a Crémant – a technique more usual in Champagne. The resulting wine is utterly delicious, honeyed and complex with notes of brioche. Compare it to the younger vintage, creamy fresh and bright.
The bright and easy-drinking whites start in the South, still in our beloved Languedoc, with our own St. JOHN Picpoul and the pioneering Creux du Nid Blanc. Then along the coast to Provence for the dry, light St. Mitre Viognier, up to the Loire for the zippy, delicate Moulin de la Gustais, and finally ending the journey North in the Alsace with the savoury, lemon-pithy Kritt Riesling.
The light and juicy reds will all take a light chill delightfully – continue the comparison theme if you like by comparing the Eparcieux, a Beaujolais Villages, with a Cru Beaujolais, the classic and voluptuous Brouilly.
And because no holiday is complete without a rosé we are delighted to have the eagerly awaited new vintage of the Corail Rosé from our favourite Raimond de Vielleneuve. Two bottles, because you will want them!
