Case of the Month: March

Posted by Simon Griffiths on

We're delighted to tell you a little more about our case of the month for March, combining some of our best-sellers with some of Simon's favourite wines in the store, all at a special price for the month of March.
Jules de Souzy, Macon-Villages
2017, 13%, £15.00
Grown in limestone vineyards so typical of Burgundy, this is a classic Mâcon Villages. Aged on its fine lees for 6-to-8 months. Lively and charming with floral and fruity characters around a backbone of chalky minerality, with notes of lemon fruit and hints of hazlenut on the finish.
Domaine Saint-Lannes, Gros Manseng
2018, 12.5%, £12.50
A wonderful Gros Manseng from one of our favourite producers in the south-west of France. So typical of the region's whites, this produces a nose and palate full of white stone fruits, a mid-palate with delightful honeyed and spice notes leading to a citrus finish. Ripe and smooth - yum!
Hush Heath Estate, Balfour "Nanette's" Rosé
2018, 11.5%, £19.50
A clean and dry rosé produced using the Champagne varietals. Beautifully pale onion skin in colour. Fresh, red summer fruit with a delicate herbal finish. Characteristic English acidity with hints of wild strawberry and white currant on the palate, the finish is long and vinous.
Snapper Rock, Merlot-Cabernet
2016, 13%, 15.95
The nose shows dark plum, cranberry, toasted hazelnut and game character with a touch of dark cocoa. The palate is weighted and fleshy, delivering excellent fruit intensity and rounded mouthfeel, finishing persistent and silky. The wine offers lovely fruit flavours with subtle spicy complexity.
CVNE Asua, Rioja Crianza
2016, 13.5%, £14.95
Deep plum in the glass, this special bottling by CVNE has a nose full of ripe, red fruit with hints of spice, mocha and balsamic from the oak. A well balanced palate with ripe, fine tannins over a rich, meaty structure and a lingering, fine finish with good acidity and long lasting fresh tannins.
Chateau Combel-la-Serre, Cahors
2016, 12.5%, £19.95
Malbec from its homeland! Locally known as Cot, this Malbec from Cahors is textbook. Heavier and with rustic tannins absent in new world Malbecs, it still has lashings of dark fruit at its heart. The garrigue quality often associated with the Rhone gives it a herbaceous, savoury edge to balance.
