Notice of Exclusive Shipment.

We are delighted to inform you of two exclusive shipments that will arrive at the shop today… Joseph Mellot l’Original Sancerre 2015 vintage and The Chocolate Block 2010

Joseph Mellot l’Original Sancerre 2015

We have secured 30 bottles of the Joseph Mellot l’Original Sancerre 2015 vintage. This wine (92 points Wine Enthusiast) is like gold dust and very difficult to find in the UK. The wine is priced at £50 a bottle. The tasting note reads… pale golden colour with green hues, very expressive and fruity nose, aromas of white flowers, citrus fruit and gunflint. Full mouth from the attack, neat and sharpened structure, surrounded by a very elegant fat, aromas of linden-tree and acacia flowers, and grapefruit, nice, long and mineral finale. Read more.

The Chocolate Block 2010

We have secured 60 bottles of the The Chocolate Block 2010 vintage from Boekenhoutskloof and they have been shipped in especially for us. Again this vintage is in pretty short supply in the UK. The wine is priced at £29.99. This is higher than the current release because it has been aged for an extra 6 years at Boekenhoutskloof, is direct from the winery and has perfect provenance. The tasting note reads… explosive nose with great depth of spiced fruit and violet-infused perfume. Striking freshness on a firmly structured palate with elegant and supple tannins. Spicy oak aromas covering a rounded mid-palate that reveals layers of fruit with intense purity. Classically styled with integrated tannins and balanced acidity to ensure a long, succulent and textured finish. Read more.
