Classic Bordeaux scents of crushed black raspberries, black cherries and currants with touches of herbs and aniseed. The medium garnet-purple coloured 2015 Talbot is medium-bodied with firm, chewy tannins and an earthy finish. 88 points, Robert Parker
Food pairing: The bold Bordeaux flavours will go well with roast beef, lamb or duck.
Serving suggestion: Open 1-2 hours before drinking.
This white Burgundy has a wonderful Chardonnay bouquet of aromatic grapefruit and tropical fruit aromas, with an underlying touch of honey. It has a rich texture with a balancing, fresh acidity, and a savoury flavour at the very end.
Food pairing: As it has good acidity, this wine will go well with rich, buttery dishes – try with pan-fried fish or shellfish in a lemon butter sauce.
Serving suggestion: Remove from fridge and open 1 hour before drinking.
