The Mixed Case
This is made for sharing, and lets face it, wine is all about friendship. A step up from the Kitchen Case, this selection is designed for folks who like to splash out a bit at the weekend. Six red and six white chosen from across the range.
Irouleguy is a small appellation in the Les Pays Basque, producing mountain fresh, white wines made from the Gros and Petit Manseng grapes together with a little Petit Courbu. It’s kind of chunky, due to the high sunshine hours, with ripe melons, clementine and mango flavours. Yet there’s also a slightly balsamic note, balanced with some jinglingly tense, citrus acidity. The Xuri is fermented partly in stainless steel and partly in barrique, with a great big whack of warm alcohol on the finish. An ideal autumn, or winter, white, it is superb with sheep or goats cheeses.
Marcillac is a tiny, obscure appellation near Clairvaux in Aveyron comprising some eight growers making wines exclusively from the Mansois grape, otherwise known as Fer Servadou. It’s a juicy mouthful of forest fruits, raspberries, spices and an almost mineral acidity, angular and refreshing with a sort of haunting earthiness.
