Clos Louie – ‘Louison & Leopoldine’, Cotes de Bordeaux Castillon, France 2014
A tiny organic vineyard with pre-phylloxeric vines owned by Pascal and Sophie Lucin Douteau. ‘Louison & Leopoldine’ is their second wine; with a high proportion of Cabernet Franc it has a charm and elegance and is drinking wonderfully right now.
‘Red cherry with hints of mint, creamy and smooth on the palate. Expressive and with fine depth of flavour – a good find.’ – www.bordeaux.com
Cusumano – Merlot IGT Terre Siciliane, 2017
Rich spicy and plumy flavours on the nose, classic Mediterranean notes on the palate with hints of tobacco and black pepper. Full bodied wine.
85 Points Wine Spectator.
“There’s a wild edge to this medium-bodied red, which sports spicy plum, cherry, underbrush and licorice notes. Drink now. 12,500 cases made.“
