First Class

Deutz Cuvée Amour de Deutz, Champagne, France, 2009

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.

Lamblin & Fils Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume, Burgundy, France, 2017

From fathers to sons the Lamblin lineage has succeeded in the vineyards since 1690. The Fourchaume is located on the right bank, west facing the sunset. Nervy, crisp vitality of a top class Chablis with soft citrus and light hints of nectarine. Fine, dry, stony palate and a lengthy finish.

Chateau Lynch-Bages, Pauillac, Bordeaux, 2008

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.

Château Blaignan, Cru Bourgeois Médoc, France, 2016

With a deep colour, the wine reveals plenty of fruits with pronounced taste of blackcurrant and redcurrant which come with sweet spices. The mouth shows a fine density, both plump and sustained qualitative tannins, generous and soft.
