Wine of the Month

top wine for April 2014

Bodegas Remelluri Lindes de Remelluri San Vincente 2010

Rioja, Spain, Cork, 14.0% abv.

From the village series of Rioja wines from Bodegas Remelluri this has a stunning nose. So much rich berry fruit, but a real sense of terroir authenticity with earth and smoky game notes. A huge, blue/black streak of concentration on the palate with such beautifully refined tannins and tightening cherry acidity. £16.99 at Davis Bell McCraith

Marcillac and Cahors

The Gang in Marcillac

The Gang had a fab trip to Marcillac and Cahors in the south west of France last month, where the contrasting styles of these two regions was stark, but quality of both was really impressive. We'll be issuing a special supplement (free to members) with our highlights of all the South West wines we tasted on the trip.
