With the ‘Fine Dining Alfresco’ case, we have selected wines which are deep, rich, complex and stylish. Wines that are best being sipped and savoured, not glugged, and that can be intentionally paired with a variety of different dishes.

VdF Liberty

A smaller cuvée from one of our top producers in Chateauneuf du Pape. This is no simple Vin de France, it comes mostly from a parcel of 65-year-old vines planted in a cooler, higher elevation parcel in the CDR. In addition, it includes some of his declassified Chateauneuf du Pape grapes, hence the Vin de France label and not Cotes du Rhone (Chateauneuf du Pape is one of the few appellations that cannot be declassified to Cotes du Rhone). Made from 55% Grenache, 18% Syrah, 12% Mourvedre and the rest Cinsault and Carignan, it tastes like a Chateauneuf du Pape with its juicy black raspberry, violets, peppery herbs and distinct minerality. This comparison is certainly still valid on the palate, as well and its medium to full-bodied, concentrated and structured. A 'mini' Chateauneuf.

Sancerre

Produced on the argilo/calcaire soils, this is a wonderful example of a classic Sancerre. Pure, crisp aromatic fruit and wet stone minerality on the nose. Wonderful intensity on the palate. Dry, but with good depth and real intensity again, lovely racy acidity and classic mineral expression of Sancerre, yet restrained and elegant.

Bandol Rosé

A blend of 50% Mourvedre, 40% Cinsault and 10% Grenache, this rosé really shows what great rose can be. The wonderfully floral nose is accompanied by luscious fresh orange and strawberry fruits, balanced with a subtle spiciness. The palate shows wonderful depth, focus and finesse, offering up a plethora of ripe fruits, such as peach, apricot, blood orange, cherries as well as honeysuckle. The balance here is impeccable with good concentration of fruit, plenty of brightening acidity and an abundance of gentle spices and Provencal character to add complexity and roundness to the overall picture. This is an incredible classy showing from Gros Nore. It’s pure, crisp and long, juicy and simply irresistible. There is something here for all comers, whether you identify as a regular rose drinker or not there is much to love and take away from this sumptuous offering from the humble Alain Pascal.

Cremant d'Alsace

A sumptuous blend of 50% Pinot Auxerrois, 30% Pinot Blanc and 20% Pinot Noir. The nose is enticing and deep, alluring you with ripe white peach, quince and delicious creamy notes. The palate is broad and rich, with pear, peach and yellow fruits, brioche, unctuous rounding acidity and a charmingly fine and persistent mousse. It is also wonderfully mineral and refined. A more affordable alternative to Champagne but just as distinguished. A pure delight!
