COFFRET DEVAUX COLLECTION D CUVÉE D SET WITH TWO FLUTES
This dynamic Champagne house based in the warmer Côte des Bar region is a Pinot Noir specialist. The Cuvée D blends Pinot Noir with Chardonnay to create a compelling, elegant wine that won Platinum at the 2019 Decanter World Wine Awards. Comprising 40% reserve wine (some dating back to 1995) aged in large oak barrels and with extended lees ageing of 60 months in bottle, this is a rich, complex Champagne that seamlessly blends notes of zesty citrus, toasty brioche and white flowers. Packaged in the perfect gift set for two, to share with a special someone.
CHARLES HEIDSIECK BRUT RÉSERVE NV GIFT BOX
This family-owned house is the smallest of Les Grandes Marques and punches well above its weight when it comes to award wins! Including the NV Champagne Trophy winner at the 2018 International Wine Challenge.
This blend of the three main Champagne varieties uses 40% reserve wine (with an average age of 10 years). Choosing to age their non-vintage Champagne for over 4 years – substantially longer than the 15-month legal requirement – provides added complexity and richness. Notes of buttery, pastry aromas combine with mango and apricot fruit and nutty notes redolent of almond and pistachio, on the long finish. Lovely!
CHARLES HEIDSIECK BRUT RÉSERVE SET OF TWO BOTTLES IN WOODEN GIFT BOX
One bottle not enough and want to give a present that looks that little bit more special? Then why not opt for this double set complete with branded wooden presentation box.
CHARLES HEIDSIECK ARMCHAIR ROSÉ RÉSERVE AND FLUTE SET
If rosé is more your bag, then look no further than this box set consisting of a bottle of multi award winning Charles Heidsieck Rosé Reserve and two flutes complete with lovely presentation box.
Using an almost equal blend of the three main Champagne varieties, the base wine includes 20% reserve wine of which around 5% of the Pinot Noir was vinified as a red wine (providing structure and soft red fruit profile). Aged for a minimum of 3 years, this delicately coloured rosé has a very approachable style – with fruity aromas of strawberry and peach alongside spicy, warming cinnamon and ginger. Rich and silky with a long finish.

OFFLEY LBV PORT 2016
Produced from a single harvest, an LBV Port is essentially an earlier drinking vintage Port at a far more economical price point! Remaining in cask longer than vintage Ports these are full bodied, deeply coloured Ports. Combining structured tannin with lots of fruit (both red and black fruit), complemented by rich chocolatey notes.
SANDEMAN NV 10 YEAR OLD TAWNY PORT WITH GIFT TUBE
If a Tawny is more your thing – how about this non vintage 10 year old Tawny? My favourite style of Port, this 10 YO has a mellow red fruit profile, complemented by dried fruit, roasted walnut, honeyed caramel and sweet vanilla spice. With fresh acidity balancing the sweetness, this is an elegant, complex wine with a finish that goes on and on. A personal favourite.
International Wine Challenge Silver 2019
SANDEMAN 10 YO TAWNY PORT GIFT PACK
Alongside a bottle of non vintage 10 year old Tawny port this attractive gift includes two glasses, packaged in an elegant gift pack. The perfect present for a port lover who is happy to share!
If you like sweet wines you really need to try Icewine – this stuff really is ‘nectar from the gods’! Made by freezing grapes on the vine and pressing while frozen, extracting small amounts of concentrated sweet juice, Inniskillin are one of the best Canadian producers making it. Both wines use the hybrid grape Vidal which is commonly used in Canada for Icewine production, and these two wines are truly not to be missed, including, if you truly fancy something different, the unique sparkling Icewine. Exotic and honeyed yet fresh on the palate.
Each come with presentation box for the perfect gift if you are feeling generous! You will not find these wines cheaper ANYWHERE!
`Gold` Niagara Vidal Icewine: Price £40.99

New Zealand Pinot Noir Pairing
Compare the different styles of these fabulous New Zealand Pinots. Ata Rangi from Martinborough on the North Island – is considered one of New Zealand’s top producers of Pinot Noir – expect lots of red berry fruit and an earthy spice note from the ‘Crimson’ (2019). From the chilly deep south of Central Otago, Akarua’s ‘Bannockburn’ (2018) offers a different style – plum and cherry with spicy star anise and cinnamon with wild thyme notes. A multi-award winner well worth trying.
Classic Southern Rhone Reds
The historic Château de Beaucastel has a global following for classy Chateauneuf-du-Pape with prices to match. The Coudoulet de Beaucastel (2018) from just outside the appellation is often known as “Baby Beaucastel’ and offers tremendous value for money. Gigondas is an appellation close to Chateauneuf producing similarly high-quality wine well worth exploring. The classy La Font des Bosquets (2017) from one of the top producers in Gigondas is produced in an earlier drinking style and is very approachable now. Try these superb reds without breaking the bank!
From one of the best producers in Lombardy: Ca’ dei Frati, the ‘I Frati’ (2020) is a superb multi-layered white wine that seamlessly blends peach and lemon fruit notes with fragrant white blossom. Clean, lively and very persistent.
If red is your thing then look no further than Chianti – in this case the superior Chianti Rufina. From Selvapiana’s prized Bucerchiale vineyard this Riserva from 2017 is a powerful, structured wine with robust tannins supporting the raspberry and spiced cherry fruit and herbal notes. Only produced in the best years, if you want to try good Chianti this is the place to start.
