Deutz Cuvée Amour de Deutz 2009, Champagne, France
The Cuvée Amour Deutz is a blanc de blanc Champagne mostly selected from Grand Cru vineyards from Avize and Mesnil-sur-Oger. The 2009 reveals a wonderful complexity. Aromas of apple pastries, baked apples and sun-gorged yellow fruit mingle with subtle notes of white flowers. The wine is silky and velvety on entry. Lovely vinosity, full and round on the palate, making a harmonious whole. Salinity and elegant minerality complement the wine’s overall balance.
Ropiteau Frères Meursault, Burgundy 2017, France
Meursault is an appellation south of Beaune, between Volnay and Puligny-Montrachet. Bright golden-green colour, a nose of great finesse with aromas of lime, hawthorn and butter notes, hazelnuts and honey. Magical balance between smoothness and freshness, with an impressive length.
Chateau Lynch-Bages 2008, Bordeaux, France
Château Lynch-Bages is a fifth growth as deemed by the Bordeaux Classification of 1855, that has been considered very superior to its ranking. Situated on the outskirts of Pauillac, overlooking the Gironde estuary, its 100 hectares of vines are planted on deep gravel soils.
The vintage 2008 displays nice aromas of cranberry, dried floral notes, and tobacco. Its excellent tannin structure is underlined by intensity, depth, and structure.
Helderberg Winery Sauvignon Blanc 2017, Stellenbosch, South Africa
Established since 1906 on the surrounding of the cool area of False Bay, the Helderberg Winery is acknowledged as a leading South African producer. The 2017 displays a lovely spectrum of cool climate characteristic such as grapefruit, gooseberries and citrus. A rich palate with layers of pure fruit with a firm acidity result in a refreshing wine of vibrant intensity and elegance. Perfect as an aperitif and fish dish.
Cave d’Azé Mäcon Villages Clocher 2017, Burgundy France
Mâconnais is the most southerly terroir of the Burgundy winegrowing region and benefits from warmer climate. Intense and subtle nose of mango, pineapple, hazelnut and grilled almond. The palate is fresh and elegant with notes of citrus and white fruits. Well balanced with a lasting minerality.
Catena Zapata Appellation Agrelo Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 Lujan de Cuyo, Argentina
Owned by Nicolás Catena and his daughter Laura, Bodega Catena Zapata is known as the pioneer of fine wine from Argentina. ‘Plush, ripe and generous dark fruist from this "first family" of Argentina. The Agrelo's succulent, silky palate delivers rich layers of spicy oak-accented fruit with a clean, powdery finish.’ Debra Meiburg MW.
