The Ultimate Christmas Day Case
Olivier Sèze was at the peak of his winemaking powers in 2012. Attractive, mature Médoc from a well-sited property near Saint-Estèphe. A blend of 49% merlot, 33% cabernet sauvignon, 15% cabernet franc and 3% petit verdot, it spent 12 months in barrel (one third of which were new) before being bottled without fining or filtration. This has a cigar-box bouquet and plenty of mellow, savoury fruit on the palate.
Christophe Cordier used to be the last to harvest but is now one of the first. Low yields and high-quality viticulture make for concentrated grapes, so his are ripe early in the cycle and you can taste the density of flavour due to the yields. A white Burgundy with a lovely balance of ripeness and freshness, highly recommended, and perfect for fine fish or fowl.
Excellent, organic premier cru from a lovely white Burgundy vintage, part matured in large foudres. Firm, taut Chablis with lemony aromas and a steely palate.
Dark and fruity Châteauneuf in which the mourvèdre grape plays a major part in the 2017 blend. Refined and richly textured with a flavour of ripe fruit and gentle spice, there are hints of fig and bay leaf too. This is perfectly rounded and ready to drink.
The combination of altitude and aspect brings a certain freshness to the wines of Cavadinha. This fully mature wine is still very much alive on the nose, with dried-fruit flavour, velvety texture fine grainy tannins and a long finish – a combination that ensured a comfortable victory in our Wine champions tasting. Drink over the next year or so, or longer if you prefer your Vintage Port in elegant maturity.
