Coteaux du Lyonnais Rouge 2016
NZD $19.95NZD $18.95
2016 is a very small vintage across many regions in France and no exception for Coteaux du Lyonnais. Most of you will be familiar with this stunning wine that we have been importing for many years. Made from 100% Gamay Noir in the style of Beaujolais, soft, aromatic and perfumed yet with grip, soft tannins and frontal forward fruit. In essence, at the price it doesn’t get any better! Ideally drink this over the next few years and put it in the fridge for about half an hour, it’s magnificent chilled.
G.F. Cavalier Blanc de Blancs Brut N.V.
NZD $14.95NZD $13.95
After being without it for almost 2 years, we welcome back this magnificent bubbly that has been with us for over 10 years. We get more requests for this than any other bubbly that we’ve ever stocked. And of course, once you try it, it’s quite understandable. It is an unpretentious, light, dry, very refreshing and crisp bubbly with lovely acidity, refined bubbles and ideal for big functions or just for the weekend! You can drink it on its own, you can mix it with orange juice, cassis etc. At the price it is unequal value for money.

We also welcome back our beloved Paul Louis after being out of it for a long time. This is made from Chenin Blanc from the Loire Valley and in the Traditional Method of Champagne, first fermentation and second fermentation in bottle, yeasty, rich and full bodied, with lovely refined and tiny bubbles, long bead and lovely balance. A great substitute for Champagne at a fraction of the cost. Something to be enjoyed on its own or also with fish, anti-pasta etc.
