Our wine merchants Bablake Wines and CA Rookes Wines are renowned for their talent in locating exciting new wines and menus will always include something to try for the first time. We are able to source particular wines or vintages for special occasions - just ask and we’ll do the rest.
These two wines have the qualities of wines priced double on many bespoke lists. We classify these as our ‘House’ wines.
This family estate is situated on calcareous-clay slopes on the right bank of the Garonne in the village of Nérigean. The quality of the terroir, the meticulously worked vines and careful vinification make Château Mongiron a reference within the appellation. This classic vintage displays a very fruity nose with notes of blackcurrant and cherry. The palate is perfectly balanced with fleshy, concentrated extract and fine length borne by the silky tannins and no real surprise here that it won a Gold Medal in Paris in 2010.
Between Sancerre and the Muscadet region is the appellation of Touraine. The famous Sauvignon vine is planted here, to great success and is giving us great value and pleasure. The Domain Gibault Sauvignon style is dry, but with great characters and middle palate fruit to suit everybody, not only as an enjoyable glass of wine on its own, but with many white meat dishes.
