Cuvee Amelie Chardonnay 2016 from Domaine Cazulet.
The aromas of this un-oaked chardonnay are fresh and fruity. On the palate there is a lovely freshness to it, with a hint of white peach and lemon and good acidity. It is very well balanced with a medium finish. We think this chardonnay is a fabulous wine for the price. If you think you don't like chardonnay, we suggest you try this.
100% Chardonnay wine from the great organic vineyard of Stephane Cazulet. This is a very special chardonnay wine and we personally think that if you don't want to pay the price tag for a Burgundy, this is a great substitute. Aged in oak for 6 months, it has a pleasant nose of tropical fruits. It is rich and slightly buttery with delicious fruit of melon, pineapple and nectarine. We think it is quite special. Great with creamy dishes, salmon, and white richer meats.
The vines are planted on clay and limestone hills at 140 metres altitude, with sandy pebbles and draining rock of fossilised coral.This beautiful 100% Vermentino (or Rolle as it is also known in France), is slightly mineral on the nose with notes of white flower. It is light and refreshing with good acidity, green apple, pear and lemon rind.

AOC St Chinian
Neighbouring the most famous vineyards of Saint-Emilion and Pomerol (Cheval Blanc, La Dominique, Petrus), Château Croque Michotte consists of just about 14 hectres of vines set on clayey sub soils covered in intensely gravelly soil stones/pebbles (graves) and ancient sands. The average age of the vines is 52 years old. The practice of small harvests and very rare use of fertilizers enables the production of wines to conform to the soil and benefiting from a natural acidity crucial to the production of vin de garde (wine for keeping/laying down). The wines are aged, for about twenty months, slowly, depending on the rhythms of the seasons and stay a year in French fine grained oak barrels. They are not filtered and hardly ever fined.
This St Emilion Grand Cru 2011 is a rich dark purple colour. It has wonderfully complex notes of dark fruits, blackcurrant, cedar, earth and vanilla, smooth tannins and a beautiful long lingering finish. A seriously good wine! Can be drank now or left for 10 years or more. An absolute bargain for a St Emilion Grand Cru of this quality.
