    St-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil Cuvée Carine 2010

Our exclusive Cuvée Carine comes from vines up to 60 years of age, grown on a south-facing slope of sand, limestone and clay.  It is deep purple in colour with the classic, telltale nose of Cabernet Franc – warm earth, raspberry and chocolate with a touch of spice from the four-month ageing in chestnut barriques. The palate has a leafy freshness with blackcurrant and raspberry fruit tinged with tobacco leaf and a core of minerality.

Georges’ beautifully presented Crémant de Loire rosé Cuvée Esprit de Sophie is a blend of a third Cabernet Franc, a third Chardonnay and a third Grolleau Gris. It has been aged on the lees for 24 months. It has an attractively fragrant and spicy nose with fresh, vibrant summer fruit flavours in the mouth and soft, creamy, cushiony mousse.   Drink as a stylish aperitif or with charcuterie, quiche Lorraine or mushroom risotto.

This magnificent dessert wine is made from old-vine Chenin Blanc grown on the special slate terroir of the Anjou, close by to the river Layon – a tributary of the River Loire. If botrytis or ‘noble rot’ occurs in the late autumn, then this golden wine can exhibit wonderfully exotic aromas and lingering flavours such as barley sugar, crème brûlée, orange zest, passion fruit and mango. Although long lived, try it young and well chilled as an aperitif or with foie gras, rich pâtés and blue cheese.
