Let Wimbledon Wine School take the stress out of choosing wine! All these carefully selected wines have been tried and tested (several times) by Richard and are ready to be delivered direct to your door. All the usual rules apply – at every level, at every price I am determined to find wines that deliver outstanding quality with a genuine story to tell. Real wines made by real people who are passionate about their craft. Even the Pinot Grigio and Prosecco are good!
So, within the selection, you have some magnificent wines and all under £12. Jade de Fleur de Lisse is an excellent medium bodied claret made by Jean-Claude Berrouet (ex-winemaker at Château Petrus). Wonderful pedigree and wonderful wine for drinking now. Other delights include IWSC Chilean Winery of the Year – Terra Noble. All their wines show magnificent purity, depth and precision. Not sure about Chardonnay? Then try their Gran Reserva Chardonnay from Casablanca Valley. I love it. Marinette Garnier is a very talented winemaker and is working wonders at Maison Jaffelin – her Vin de France Pinot Noir is superb. Bright, vibrant with plenty of pure red berry fruit, soft tannins and elegant finish. There are two white Bordeaux on the list. It’s easy to always focus on red Bordeaux but the whites are excellent as well and I’ve selected two from the Maison Sichel stable – Château Argadens in Entre Deux Mers and Sirius Blanc, just across the river from Graves. Both are Sauvignon Semillon blends and both are delicious, combing all that lovely freshness and green fruit from the Sauvignon Blanc with riper Semillon flavours of peach and apricot.
I hope you enjoy the selection. It will change from time to time and I have plenty more wines if you would some recommendations. Please do get in touch.
