We will show a selection of French wines on Wednesday 1st May at the Moor Club, Heaton Moor at 8.00pm
In whites we have a stunning new Melon Blanc, Nocturne which is a fresh method of winemaking for Muscadet fans. There is also a new vintage of the barrel fermented Viognier Serica. 2017 was also a great vintage in the Macon and this unoaked Chardonnay based wine, Réserve Personnelle Chardonnay, Mâcon-Villages. We finsih with a wine that always is overshadowed but I think the whites are better than the reds, Graves and this one from Chateau Calvimont is no exception.
In reds, we start with a fresh Syrah from the Rhone called Exploration. We follow with a wine from St Chinian Clos Bagatelle. Equal measures of Grenache, Syrah, Carignan and a dash of Mourvèdre. All grapes are handpicked and vinified separately – ageing taking place in large oak casks, the result is a blend of youthful exuberance and generous texture. Then, we have a mystery wine ???????? to be assesssed. We can tell you it is French! We finish with a cru Bourgeois Medoc, Chateau Carcanieux and the old Cabernet Sauvignon vines excel.
All these wines will be available for tasting on Wednesday 1st May . at 8.00pm, in the Moor Club, Heaton Moor. Places are £12 and should be reserved by contacting us.
