    RE96M 2009 Saint-Chinian, Hecht & Bannier +

    Syrah, grenache, mourvèdre. To quote directly from the Hecht & Bannier website:

    “The highly quaffable character of this Saint-Chinian derives from the floral syrah, grown on sandstone and chalky clay, the intense soft fruit of the grenache and the structure of the exceptionally ripe mourvèdre. It brings together the tulip, the iris, the lily of the valley and other bulb flower’s expressions and a stony side which [brings to mind] storm rain on hot stones.”

    100% pinot noir. From a two hectare parcel within one of Mercurey’s best-known vineyards, this offers pronounced raspberry fruit and notes of violet.

    “Nous avons préféré ce premier cru aux autres cuvées du domaine pour son style pulpeux et complet. L’ensemble tutoie quelques beaux vins de côte de Nuits dans la texture et l’allonge. C’est un 2009 mûr mais fin dans les tanins et digeste. Beaucoup de plaisir!” 16 points

    CH53M Louis Roederer Brut Premier +

    40% pinot noir, 40% chardonnay, 20% pinot meunier. An excellent introduction to the celebrated Cristal, Louis Roederer’s ‘house’ champagne is almost Burgundian in its richness and complexity. 12% ABV

    “Beautifully composed reduction across lemon citrus, white peach, cherries and deeper, more savoury notes of spice and grilled nuts; fresh and complex at once. The palate’s assertively flavored, yet runs on a smooth and fine textural thread. Acidity is paramount, redder fruits hold court here. Great balance and depth.” 92 points
    James Suckling (July 2015)

    “The famous non-vintage from Louis Roederer has evolved and become just that little bit drier. This bottling emphasizes white fruits and crisp acidity as well as mineral texture. It is a complete wine, all the elements there. Another few months bottle age will make this wine even better, so wait until 2017.” 92 points
