Wines from the Loire mixed case - £99
2:36pm Monday 16th July 2007 in Leisure
The Loire Valley is home to a selection of grape varieties, particularly sauvignon blanc that makes wonderfully refreshing wines with delightful minerality that comes from the chalky soils of the region.
The Loire's cool climate results in ultra clean dry wines that are perfect with a wide variety of foods, particularly fish and seafood.
Includes three bottles of each of the following four wines:
- Muscadet de Sevre et Maine Sur Lie, Haut Pemions 2006
The Haut Pemions is a superb example of a wine made 'on the lees' - full creamy and yeasty flavours are combined with a delightful ultra fresh crispness that really refresh the palate.
- Sancerre Domaine Cherrier 2006
The Cherrier brothers own 11 hectares of land around the village of Amigny, near to the town of Sancerre. They make top class traditional Sancerre from sauvignon blanc grapes grown on the classic chalky soils of the region that shows refreshing gooseberry and blackcurrant fruit backed up by fine minerality. Superb with fish dishes and seafood.
- Sancerre Domaine Cherrier Ros 2006
This fine, dry rose from the Cherrier brothers is made from the pinot noir grape and is an ideal food wine with flavours of cherry, stone fruit and minerals. This makes a perfect match with full flavoured dishes such as smoked fish, charcuterie and summer salads.
- Cabernet Sauvignon Anjou, Frederic Mabileau 2003
This cabernet sauvignon comes from the warm 2003 vintage which produced full-flavoured ripe wines in the Loire and this one is no exception. Frederic Mabileau has produced a wine that is full of juicy clean blackcurrant fruit with a hint of woodsmoke.
