Ch teau Bolaire 2015 – Bordeaux Supérieur 1 x 75cl, the wine has a lustrous purple colour, with floral aromas of crushed violets and faded rose petals, in conjunction with cherries, blackberries, basil, and black truffles. At the palate, the wine is juicy and sleek, with a succulent core of clean red and black fruit, in conjunction with fleeting suggestions of fennel, roasted coffee, and dark chocolate. Restrained silky ripe tannins, and the brilliant minerality of the Petit Verdot keep it nimble and refreshing.
Vallombrosa Les Terrasses Blanc – France 1 x 75cl, pale yellow with green highlights. The bouquet is intense and fresh, stuffed with the aromas of white flowers and fresh fruit.
At the palate it’s round and sublime, with white peach notes mingling with nuances of apricot. Then there are notes of yellow grapefruit and pineapple, with an exquisite long finish.
2 x 75cl in a smart strap-closing wicker hamper stuffed with a sumptuous bed of wooden wool.
