Another winner from Chateau Des Tourtes! Chateau Des Tourtes Red Prestige 2014 is extremely elegant, with a deep garnet colour. On the nose it's very reminiscent of blackberries, with toasty overtones from the wooden barrels. It is medium bodied and velvety on the palate with a strong backbone. The fruit is beautifully balanced from the flavours from the oak barrel. When people try this wine, 2 words always spring up - 'silk' and 'velvet'. This fabulous wine was recommended in Decanter magazine
85% Merlot, 15% cabernet sauvignon
AOC Blaye cotes de Bordeaux
Domaine Cazulet Rouge 2014 is a blend of cabernet sauvignon and malbec, which brings freshness and tannic structure. Slightly peppery on the nose, with the merlot making it fruity and velvety. It is slightly mineral which is due to the clay limestone present in the ground (their vines sit on an area known as 'the rock'). It is fresh, fruity, medium bodied with great structure, and it's organic. All in all a well rounded and balanced elegant wine.THIS WINE WILL BE BACK IN STOCK SPRING 2017
50% Cabernet sauvignon, 40% merlot, 10% malbec
Even though the Domaine is within the geographic bounds of AOC Saint Chinian, the percentage of Cinsault excludes it from AOC status, which requires that grenache, syrah, and mourvèdre must combine to total at least 60% of the blend. Therefore, the label reads "Vin de pays des Monts de la Grage". 15 year old vines Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks Slightly peppery on the nose from the Syrah, with subtle toast and earthy notes, along with light and fruity red berries. In the mouth it is firm, with lovely fruity red berry flavours. A very well rounded wine, relatively light and an absolute joy to drink. Very easy drinking and a fine example of excellent value for money.

100% Malbec 2016, Domaine Des Soulie.
Bright ruby red in colour. A simple nose, with aromas of spices, plum and a smokey point. This Malbec has has soft tannins and good acidity and in our opinion is excellent value.
