Domaine Tour Campanets Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence Bois des Fées Rosé 2020 - ORGANIC
Emmanuelle Baude bought this vineyard in 2012 convinced of its potential to produce excellent wines. She quit her job as a solicitor and began the task of restoring the vineyard. Her first endeavour was to have the vineyard certified organic. “Today, progress means respecting the earth”. A delicious rosé to go with food. Perfect with fish and seafood. Quite subtle aromas of strawberry and peach, very elegant. On the palate it is ripe with crisp acidity. Flavours of pear and tropical fruits dominate with a long balanced finish. Alc: 13%

Jean-Philippe Janoueix Château Le Conseiller 2015
The wines of Château Le Conseiller benefit from the estate’s clay soils. They are deep and full-bodied, with a roundness and opulence that have been truly mastered. Malolactic fermentation takes place in barrels, allowing the oak to gently enhance the rich black fruit aromas.
89 Points Robert Parker: "The 2015 Le Conseiller is a selection of the best Merlot from Jean-Philippe Janoueix's property. Inky, juicy and dark, the Conseiller captures the intense fruitiness and ripeness of 2015. A Galloni"
Tom Doorley, The Irish Mail, 11/04/21: "Rich, ripe, opulent Merlot that could pass for a Saint-Émilion, perfect right now." - Alc: 14.5%
Bodegas Muga Reserva 2017
Bodegas Muga are one of the leading lights in Rioja. The majority of their vineyard holdings are located in Rioja Alta, a relatively high altitude location which is heavily influenced by it's proximity to the Atlantic. This is the only red they produced this vintage, so all the best grapes that normally go to other wines were used here; those selected grapes helped to keep the volume of this cuvée, and at the same time, it seems to have boosted the quality of this wine, which feels every bit as good as the 2016. It has a serious palate with fine, chalky tannins and very good balance. 93/100 Luis Gutiérrez The Wine Advocate - Alc: 14%
