Description

Calmel & Joseph Cremant de Limoux Brut

Calmel & Joseph Cremant de Limoux Brut has a lovely silky mousse, fine, tightly-packed bubbles. The wine displays tints of pale yellow. Nice green apple and citrus character on the nose, which is very fine, harmonious and enticing. Straightforward and elegant on the palate with delicate, vineyard peach-like fruity notes. This sparkling wine possesses serious, vinous qualities. Very suitable for aperitif drinking, it can also be a wonderful match with food. Nice length on the palate with a well-balanced finish.

Clay-limestone. The vines are planted to the west of Limoux at 200-300 metres, where the average rainfall is 800 mm/year. The climate is humid and temperate, with westerly winds and periods of warm weather. The grapes ripen later here than in the Mediterranean and Autun areas.

Vinification

Traditional method. The grapes are hand-harvested and transported to the winery in small crates, where they are pressed and processed in temperature-controlled tanks at 15°C, following standard white wine-making methods. Wines from several tanks are carefully blended together and cultured yeasts are added the result, which is then bottled. The secondary fermentation starts and bubbles of carbonic gas form within the bottle. After leaving the wine to rest on its lees for 15 months, the final stage consists of turning the bottle upside down so that the sediment sinks down into the neck, ready to be disgorged after freezing. As this operation entails the loss of a small amount of liquid, the bottle is topped up with still wine and “liqueur d’expédition” (a mixture of wine and sugar) before being sealed with a cork.

Jancis Robinson: 16.5 / 20 : Such round, lovely ripe-apple fruit, loose knit and a slight hint of cardamom.

Casa Belfi Col Fondo Prosecco DOC Frizzante NV

The wine is light bodied, bone-dry and, without filtering or clarification, as hazy as a blizzard in a snow globe. Straw yellow with greenish hues, it has the very delicate bubbles typical of Frizzante wines, and flowery and fruity scents accompanied by notes of citrus, yeast and baked bread. The lees at the bottom of the bottle offer the wine softness, mouthfeel and longevity and can be shaken into the Prosecco to give a buttery-spicy flavours.

Spagnol Prosecco DOCG Frizzante Lo Spago 2017

The colour is bright straw yellow and it has the light and soft perlage typical of Frizzante wines. The nose senses a bouquet of apple and floral notes of acacia and wisteria. The taste is fresh and very typical, with good acidity balanced by tatantalizing sapidity or an almost salty minerality. This wine is closely linked to the traditions of this territory and characterised by the typical “twine knot”. The cork is fixed to the bottle neck with twine, a procedure which is still done today by hand, just as it has been done for generations by the farming families of this area.

Pol Roger Brut

Pol Roger Brut Reserve is synonymous with classic, brilliant Champagne. The Champagne has its devout disciples within the trade - almost a trade secret! When you get to taste it you will understand why the trade want to keep it for themselves. The small, classic bubbles, perfumed spice, vanilla and coffee leading to a fruit filled bundle of vibrant tastes finishing with elegant spices and a hint of butter. On the nose, white flowers, green apple, brioche and a trace of minerality dominate the champagne. On the palate there are notes of stone fruits, certain nuttiness and a hint of honey supporting the freshness of the acidity. UK stock receives an additional 6 months post-disgorgement ageing so it is ready to drink upon release but cellaring for a few years will reveal greater depths. The aperitif champagne par excellence but one, which has sufficient backbone to be drunk with a variety of foods.
