Pierre Amadieu, Gigondas, Romane Machotte, 2012, Whelehans

Powerful, Smooth, Hedge Berries and Vanilla – Gigondas – enjoyed with John and complimented by the Cheese Board.

€23.93 in Whelehans expertly poured with a corkage charge of €5


Sancerre, Domaine Andre Vatan, ‘Maulin Bele’ Rose 2014

Lovely zing off this rose, crisp, clean 100% Pinot Noir, lovely with the Cheese Platter in Whelehans.

Jancis Robinson wasn’t too keen on this – preferring their standard Sancerre – but I am. Not cheap but quality shines. John brought this to dinner.

A suggestion from Provence that Saignee produced Roses aren’t the real deal.

Saignée rosé “not true rosé”
