Three stunning French wines beautifully presented in a wooden chest with brass latch. Each of these classic wines boasts at least two richly deserved medals from the major international wine organisations International Wine Challenge and the Sommelier Wine Awards.
- Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Les Bartavelles, Jean-Luc Colombo - France, 75cl
Tasting Notes: A bright and intense ruby blend of Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre. On the nose a powerful wine, full, complete and silky with notes of ripe fruit, liquorice, and gingerbread. Matured in part in large oak barrels for 16 months.
"Quite fruit-driven, with a big ball of cassis and red liquorice waiting to expand, while notes of Linzer torte, fruit cake and plum pudding fill out the broad, polished finish." - 90 pts (2009) Wine Spectator.

- Sancerre, La Grande Châtelaine de Joseph Mellot, France - 75cl
Tasting Notes: The top Sancerre cuvée from Joseph Mellot and a comprehensive demonstration of the quality that Sancerre can produce. Fermented and partially aged in a mix of new and seasoned oak barrels. Shows incredible intensity and elegance with a complex palate that evolves in the mouth. Whilst all the typical gooseberry and grassy flavours are there, so much more appears such as candied grapefruit, lime zest and hints of pineapple.

- Crozes Hermitage, Les Fées Brune, Jean-Luc Colombo, France - 75cl
Tasting Notes: Hand-harvested grapes are vinified traditionally, with a long maceration process. The wine is aged for 15 months in oak barrels (a third new, a third one-year-old and a third two-year-old barrels). The nose shows delicate notes of blackcurrant and raspberry; fresh, juicy cherry and black plum fruit on the palate against a savoury-mineral backdrop. 'This is nicely built, with dark currant and plum sauce flavours laced with sweet tapenade, all offset by a bright streak of cherry pit on the finish. More floral and acid-driven than most Crozes.' 90 pts (2009) Wine Spectator
