Easter is just around the corner, lockdown restrictions start to lift from Monday…it seems a good time to offer a mixed 6-bottle drinking case, ready for immediate delivery, to enjoy with friends and family over the Bank Holiday weekend.
I have selected a broad range of styles, all notable examples from their respective regions and drinking well now. I am a huge fan of all the wines included in this case, I hope you will enjoy them as much as I do. Please see below for details on the individual wines.
Easter Mixed Case - £174 per 6 bottles including duty, VAT and delivery.
NV Champagne, de Sousa
A firm favourite at Atlas. De Sousa’s old vines and low yields gives this Champagne an abundant sense of ripe citrus and orchard fruit, bright and lively on the palate with hints of orange zest. Drink now - 2023.
2019 Rosato, Nervi
A rose (100% Nebbiolo) crafted by Roberto Conterno (of Barolo estate Giacomo Conterno and Monfortino fame). A really impressive rosato – vibrant red fruit and pretty floral aromatics, this has so much energy and a surprising long, subtle finish. Drink now - 2022.
2017 Brouilly, Alex Foillard
Son of famed Beaujolais winemaker Jean Foillard, Alex Foillard is an up and coming name in the region, focusing on delivering high quality with minimal intervention. We've been really impressed with this wine – pure and vibrant, with a bright red fruit core and a gentle spiciness, this is a really impressive, juicy Brouilly. Drink now - 2024.
2019 Dolcetto d'Alba, Elio Grasso
In contrast to Piemonte’s most famous grape, Nebbiolo, Dolcetto produces fruity wines with low tannins and a soft texture, best enjoyed young. Enjoy the fruit and aromatics when youthfully fresh and vibrant, as this makes for a fantastic spring/summer drinker from one of Piemonte’s finest producers. This refreshing red lends itself well to being served slightly chilled. Drink now - 2024.
2018 Chenin Blanc Reserve, DeMorgenzon
A personal favourite, I love this wine for its richness and complexity, subtle creamy texture and a concentrated core of delicious zesty fruit, underpinned by a mouth-watering freshness. Delicious, and easily one of the finer Chenins that we have tasted. Drink now - 2030+.
2018 Chardonnay, Dog Point
The last two vintages of this Malborough Chardonnay have been hugely impressive. The 2018 shows the trademark aromas of toasted nut and crisp bacon fat, notes of peach and nectarine on the palate with notes of lime and a slight smoky complexity and a subtle saline finish. Drink now-2024.
