1 x Domaine Jean Descombes Morgon Cote du Py 2019 - Burgundy, France
90/100 Wine Enthusiast (2019 vintage)
92/100 James Suckling (2017 vintage)
91/100 James Suckling (2016 vintage)
James Suckling "One of the best ever. Drink now. Pretty aromas of strawberries, flowers and hints of dust follow through to a full body that is compact and tight with very vibrant acidity. Flavorful finish."
Decanter "Very good now and with the legs to improve.Textured and bullish, with layers of black fruits, raspberries and blueberries bound in grippy tannins."
Wine & Spirits "Best Buy!"
Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast "Named after a family that has been in Morgon since the French Revolution, this wine shows powerful tannins and rich black fruits. It offers spice, layers of fruit and acidity, with a dry core that shows aging potential. Drink from 2021." (2019 Vintage)
Wine Advocate “One of Dubeouf's best this year.... bursts from the glass with a lavish bouquet of cassis, plums and cherries. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and juicy, with supple but chewy tannins, a generous core of fruit and a comparatively elegant profile.” (2017 Vintage)
Wine & Spirits "Descombes was the first grower Georges Duboeuf worked with when he started his firm in 1968. This domaine is now run by Descombes’s daughter, Nicole Descombes Savoye, who produces this wine for Duboeuf from close to 30 acres with a southeast-facing exposition, the vines ranging in age from 50 to 100 years old. Made with destemmed grapes in a partial carbonic maceration, the wine is all raspberry, meadow flowers and iron-edged tannins. And it’s the tannins that last, detailed in their mineral expression, suiting the wine to long aging."
Nicole Descombes Savoye is known as “the Queen of Beaujolais”. Her family has been in the famous Morgon winemaking region since the French Revolution. Nicole’s father - the great and late Jean Ernst - which this wine is named after - is considered one of the great winemakers of the Morgon.
Les Vins Georges Duboeuf is one of the largest wine producers in France founded by the late Georges Duboeuf who was affectionately known as 'le roi du Beaujolais' (the King of Beaujolais) or sometimes pape du Beaujolais (Pope of Beaujolais). Les Vins Georges Duboeuf produces a staggering 3 million cases of wine annually. The company is most well-known for its popularization and production of Beaujolais wines. In 2018 Georges’ passed control of his company to his son Franck Duboeuf, who is considered to be one of the key specialists in Beaujolais, its terroir and its wine, and has shifted production to focus more on Beaujolais Nouveau.
1 x Corymbia Chenin Blanc 2018 - Swan Valley, Western Australia
95/100 Ray Jordan
93/100 The Wine Front
91/100 Nick Stock
Ray Jordan "This is bloody marvellous Chenin Blanc. It was made by Rob and Genevieve Mann from fruit grown on Tony Mann’s property. Sure, it was a very good year, but it has been handled deftly to capture all those essential goodies from a variety that sings from the Swan. Controlled tropical fruits, with minerally citrus character and a lively fine acidity, are in perfect balance. Just love the palate."
Campbell Mattinson "Soft acidity, fluid flavour, a semblance of texture and lovely length. ...There’s a lilt to this wine, a carry. Watercress, pears and apples. It has enough to satisfy but it’s elegance personified."
Nick Stock "Here’s a delicious chenin blanc that shows dried apple rind, cooked pears, fresh herbs and freshly squeezed nectarines. Medium body, bright and fine acidity and a medium finish."
Mike Bennie (The Wine Front) "Precise and racy style, kept in check with limey acidity and chalky phenolic grip. Actually, so much grip, rivulets of talc-and-salt-like pucker and chew. Serious structure and finesse in tow. Lime, tonic water, mixed minerals. Whoosh. Belter of a wine."
Gourmet Traveller Wine "Multiple releases of Corymbia chenin blanc have impressed.....The wines under the Corymbia label have been outstanding."
Gourmet Traveller Wine "Corymbia is one of the most exciting wine projects to emerge from Western Australia in a decade. The combination of a distinguished winemaking family, the reinvention of a much-maligned wine region, the unlocking of the potential of a mature vineyard and a general sense of creativity, have all contributed to a strong currency.
Corymbia is the newish project of Rob and Genevieve Mann. The Mann family, of course, are generational wine producers in WA, with a history of iconic wines and vineyards. Rob, formerly working with Hardys, Cape Mentelle and Newton Vineyard in Napa Valley, has returned home and made a mark.
The family vineyard in Swan Valley is dry grown and organically farmed. While winemaking draws on the Manns’ suite of expertise and diversity of influences, it has been pared back for Corymbia, letting the fruit and character of the wines take the spotlight.
That Swan Valley has been put on a pedestal is wonderful, and a celebration of older vineyards, unique soil profile and a general sense of generational endeavour is exciting for the region. There’s an undercurrent of winemakers amplifying the region’s potential, but arguably Corymbia is the current totem."
Huon Hooke "The Mann family are winemaking royalty in Western Australia."
Corymbia is a new winery launched by one of founding families of Western Australian wine. The Manns have grown grapes and made wine in the Swan Valley, Western Ausyralia's oldest wine growing region for over a century. Corymbia wines are critically acclaimed, organically-farmed, single-vineyard wines. Founder, Rob Mann is considered one of Australia's best contemporary winemakers. He was senior winemaker at Hardy’s Tintara, and Cape Mentelle, where during his ten year tenure the winery was twice awarded 'Australia's Producer of the Year' and Rob 'Australian Winemaker of the Year'. Prior to founding Coymbia he was Senior Winemaker at LVMH’s Newton Vineyard in the Napa Valley.

91/100 Wine Enthusiast (2014 vintage)
Wine Enthusiast "This wine has structure as well as vibrant black fruits. Its juicy, fruity character contrasts with the open, perfumed flavors."
Decanter "A balanced and complex palate combining a textured palate with lightness of fruit flavour. It has an amazing ability to taste deep and rich but be elegant, light and refreshing on the palate. Very impressive with supple black berry flavours alongside a minerality that comes through as wet stones, chalk and metal. It finishes on a slightly spiced mint note. Again, like La Rochelle, you can really taste terroir - grapes come from a single-vineyard plot located above the windmill at the top of the appellation with eastern exposure sitting in a wind tunnel that affects their maturation and concentration. Soils are sandy granite with an underlayer of clay."
Wine Spectator "Blackberry compote and dark cherry flavors are encased by velvety tannins in this light-bodied red, with floral and spice details lingering into the finish. Drink now through 2024."
Decanter "With 2018, Moulin-à-Vent has experienced four great vintages in a row and while they maybe a little less colour and concentration than in 2017, the quality is extremely high with quantity to match."
The Winemaker “A crimson colour with intense, complex aromas including floral scents (roses, peonies), dark berry aromas and hints of kirsch, sweet spices and pepper. Full, rich and fleshy on the palate, its tannins are mentholated, silky and distinctive, giving the wine a good structure. We recommend to taste this wine at 15-16 °C.”
Domaine du Pourpre is a family-run estate in the commune of Chénas. The Meziat family has been running it for 5 generations. Vines are more than 50 years old.
This wine is produced by Les Vins Georges Duboeuf which is one of the largest wine producers in France founded by the late Georges Duboeuf who was affectionately known as 'le roi du Beaujolais' (the king of Beaujolais) or sometimes pape du Beaujolais (Pope of Beaujolais).

Moulin-à-Vent is situated in the north of the Beaujolais region in France. It is one of the most famous crus and named after the local windmill – the literal translation of the name. It is a historic appellation with a vine-growing history dating back hundreds of years. It was officially granted appellation status in 1936 – one of the first in the country.
Decanter "Moulin-à-Vent is considered the ‘king’ of the ten Beaujolais crus for the power, concentration, structure and ageability of its wines."

Bob Campbell "Bright, fresh pinot noir with floral, rose petal, cherry and subtle spice flavours. An appealing, easy-to-drink wine, with an ethereal texture and vibrant flavours. Simple and distinctive. Good varietal definition."
Bob Campbell "Gently seductive pinot noir with cherry, plum and other red fruit flavours together with violet, floral, fresh herb and mixed spice characters. Smooth-textured with a backbone of very fine tannins." (2019 Vintage)
Robert Parker "Subtle cedar notes join raspberries and strawberries on the nose of the 2018 Pinot Noir. On the palate, it's a bit light and lacking texture, but it's pretty, those attractive berry shadings lingering on the tart, crisp finish." (2018 Vintage)
Wine Experience "Elegant and silken with wild, dark berry flavours and gentle dried herb notes. Medium-bodied, the palate is structured and graceful with plush fruit and exceptional fruit and tannin integration which lingers in the mouth." (2016 Vintage)
Wine Enthusiast "This is a likable, easygoing Pinot that's fruity but not syrupy. It leads with a bowl of berries—strawberries, raspberries and cranberries—and is quickly followed by notes of baking spice, cracked pepper and violet. It's medium bodied but on the lighter end, with lifted acidity and smooth, stalky tannins. Drink now. Christina Pickard" (2016 Vintage)
Wine Spectator "Smooth and creamy vanilla-scented strawberry and pomegranate flavors are lush and spicy in this red, with details of sage and matcha. Harmonious on the finish. Drink now. 2,500 cases made, 200 cases imported. — MW" (2016 Vintage)
The Winefront "Pretty perfume shows red cherry, raspberry jam, some plummy notes. Fruity as... bright and easy to drink..." (2016 Vintage)
James Suckling "This has a wealth of violets on the nose, and there's a dry earthy edge. The palate has elemental shape and red-fruit flavors. Drink now." (2015 Vintage)
Wine Enthusiast "Although it starts on the oaky side, the ripe red fruit, olive and baking spice notes soon come into play. The palate integrates silky tannins with plush fruit, making this a straightforward example of Marlborough Pinot Noir." (2015 Vintage)
Wine Spectator "There's a floral overtone and plenty of fresh green herbal notes to the tangy cherry flavors, with fresh green notes and tannins that firm up on the finish. Drink now. 3,000 cases made, 112 cases imported. — MW" (2015 Vintage)
Robert Parker "Pale ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Pinot Noir gives a good intensity of ripe red cherry and red currant notes with a waft of underbrush. The medium-bodied palate delivers a great burst of uncomplicated red berry flavors with a soft structure and good persistence." (2015 Vintage)
Falstaff "Medium crimson garnet, violet reflections, wider ocher rim. Red berries underlaid with tender tangerine zest, subtle herbal spices, restrained bouquet. Light-bodied, sweet strawberry confit, delicate tannins, elegant acidity, red berry finish, somewhat melting, stays short" (2012 Vintage)

Stuart Knox - The Real Review "Palest of salmon-pinks in the glass. Strawberry, lavender and pink grapefruit aromatics. Great fruit intensity and balance between that fruit and acidity. The finish has a moment of phenolic grip kick in which focuses and lengthens the palate. Very much in the modern Provençal style, ticking all the boxes for summer drinking" (2019 Vintage)
Ralph Kyte-Powell - The Real Review "The merest blush of pink slightly deepens its glittering appearance, introducing a subtle, savoury style that’s incredibly appetising. There are earthy, stoney aromas, suggestions of wildflowers, and a subtle thread of plummy fruit that translate easily into a smooth, dry mouthful of tangy, ripe flavour. It’s lingering and zesty with just enough phenolic structure to make it very food-friendly. A blend of syrah, grenache and cinsault." (2019 Vintage)
Epicure Good Food, Wine Guide, The Age "Outstanding French Rosé...The bouquet is subtle, and more than simple fruit. Good depth of flavour." (2019 vintage)
Terry Georga "Rameau d'Or is the most classic of Provencal rosés; from the pale pink-salmon verging on peach-flesh colour, to the savoury spice and fruit it portrays. A delicate blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah and Counoise from Cotes du Provence it is a refreshing, versatile wine that suits aperitif drinking and the quintessential summer rosé." (2018 vintage)
The Winemaker "A delicate coloured rosé showing the traditional pale onion skin tones of rose from the sunny Provence area of Southern France. On the nose, the wine offers a hint of wild strawberries and delicate spicy notes reminiscent of rose petal Turkish delight. On the palate, the wine shows immediate soft berry-fruit flavours that are immediately appealing. Then a hint of white pepper and fennel spice comes through providing a fresh, almost tangy finish which lingers on the palate." (2018 vintage)
Drinkster, Philip White 'Provence Grenache Cinsault rosé stays fresh and pink with screw cap' "This is a bonny dry rosé of the best sort....mild rosepetal/rosebud perfume that wends from the thorns all the way along to Turkish delight is here....insinuations of gingery lime marmalade and leatherwood honey - are all here jumping and dancing so fresh and lovely." (2017 vintage)
Cameron Douglas MW "Attractive fragrances of light red fruits - light red cherry and strawberry with a hint of cranberry; these are repeated on the palate with crisp and refreshing acidity, very light and fine needlepoint tannins showing off a chalky mineral-like moment." (2016 vintage)
Wine of the Week "Fabulous lunchtime wine with attractive bottle presentation and a back label story to the entrance. The most delicate pink hue, subtle aromas of cherry and raspberry and almost bone dry to the taste which is savoury rather than fruity with spice and pepper nuances and a tangy finish."
Huon Hooke "An outstanding southern French rosé. The colour is pale salmon-pink and the bouquet is shy and subtle, savoury and more than simple fruit. Good depth of flavour, richness and the finish has harmony and persistence. Very more-ish. " (2015 vintage)
George Orwell ''All rosés are equal but some rosés are more equal than others.''
A blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah and Counoise
This wine is produced by Debussy which has several estates in the Rhone Valley, Provence and other Mediterranean regions. Debussy estates produce wines that express the characters and typicity of each of the French terroir that the vineyards are located, creating wines reflective of the regions and their popular wine styles. The name Rameau d'Or means 'Golden Bough' and is based on a fantastical tale of enchantments, transformations and love. A magical golden bough from an enchanted garden was given to a prince, by an eagle, to awaken a sleeping princess. A bough is so powerful that a single leaf from it would make one rich, young and beautiful. Unfortunately, this prince was not the most handsome man in his kingdom. Choosing a full led soul over outer beauty, he and his newly awoken princess set about to transform the lives of those around them.
1 x Luc Baudet “A Quatre Mains” Crozes-Hermitage Red 2017 - Rhône Valley, France
The Winemaker “This Northern Syrah exhibits a bouquet of blackcurrant, vetyver and violet. It shows a surprising roundness and a smooth texture.“
Produced from vineyards located in the communes of Crozes-Hermitage and Mercurol. AOP Crozes-Hermitage.
Crozes-Hermitage is an appellation of the northern Rhone valley in France. It covers a relatively large area on the eastern bank of the Rhone river, to the north and south of Tain L'Hermitage town. In 2011 almost 70,000 hl of wine were produced and sold under the Crozes-Hermitage title – more than the other seven northern Rhone appellations combined. The vast majority (around 90 percent) of Crozes-Hermitage wines are red, and made predominantly from Syrah (Shiraz).
