Chateau Belles Eaux 2016. Les coteaux, Languedoc.

A heavyweight from the South of France.

Big, austere dry fruity mouthfeel, definitely for lovers of raw red meats.

From the wholesalers website “Top quality Languedoc winery owned by Château Pichon-Longueville in Bordeaux. With an explosion of red fruits, peppery spices and wild herbs on the nose that follow through to the smooth and full-bodied palate.”

Hedonism(e) Hedo 2017 Corbieres

Uno Piu Uno, Puglia, 2015, Michele Biancardi

[categories Italy, Puglia, nero de troia, Primitivo ]

Produced in Cerignola near a very special part of the world – Gargano.

A concise list in the Linden Tree dining room at Carton House, this was chosen on the basis of perceived value in an otherwise expensive cluster. Big whack of vanilla, fruit and smooth alcohol delivery.
