Chablis 1er Cru ~ Domaine Guy Robin ‘Vaillons’£263.40 Per Case (Ex VAT) Equiv price per bottle £21.95 (ex VAT)
Winemaker Marie-Ange Robin represents the fourth generation of vine
growers in the family. It was her father Guy who, parcel by parcel,
purchased Chablis vineyards in the 1950s; yet it is Marie-Ange who
has brought the winery to a level of greatness for which it was always
destined. There are few other Chablis estates with such a rich collection
of older-vine rootstock, and as a result, few other estates that deliver
Chablis wines of such character and complexity. Some 80 percent of
the family’s vines today—across five grand cru and four premier cru
vineyards—are “vieilles vignes” or older vines.
Crémant de Bourgogne Brut-Domaine Paul Chollet£179.40 Per Case (Ex VAT) Equiv price per bottle £14.95 (ex VAT)
Resulting from the blending of the 3 main grape varieties of Burgundy, coming from vineyards located in Côtes de Beaune, Côte de Nuits and Hautes Côtes. The Pinot Noir is most used in this cuvée (70%) because of its privileged location in the heart of the traditional red vines of Burgundy. It offers strength and fruit, linked with the fineness and the elegance of Chardonnay and the freshness of Aligoté. The different origins of the grapes used in our blendings ensure that our cuvées have a perfect balance.
This Crémant is ideal for apéritifs, cocktails or events, served with a fruit cream or can be enjoyed on it?s own. Thanks to its personality it can be tasted with pleasure all along a meal.

Dark ruby colour. Complex on the nose, notes of toasted vanilla, ripe fruit with a hint of prune and black cherry. Rich and highly concentrated with great structure and a long finish. The oak has rounded the tannins, and the flavours have married well, offering both warmth and complexity.

Pierre Gimonnet Premier Cru ‘Cuis’ – Rosé£419.40 Per Case (Ex VAT) Equiv price per bottle £34.95 (ex VAT)
The colour is a very pale pink, but very crystal-clear and pure.
To the nose and mouth, the attack is both citrus from Chardonnay and small red fruits from Pinot Noir. The liveliness and airy notes slowly give place to creamy notes with an elegant finish, finely mineral with touches of tangerine.
A pleasant champagne for your guest’s enjoyment as an aperitif or with dinner, mainly with seafood and a finish of sabayon or red fruits.

A polished, floral nose shows a hint of oak spice and minerally fruits leading to a palate of yellow plums and flint, backed up by a fresh acidity singing with mineral nuances. Great ageing potential” We say – a truly fine Sancerre. Only produced in the best years, where grapes are completely picked by hand from 45 year old vines.
