Baron Philippe Agneau Blanc, six bottle case
Agneau Blanc is created by Baron Philippe de Rothschild S.A. using grapes selected from specific parcels across Bordeaux. An incredible level of care and attention is carried out to ensure that this wonderfully crisp and aromatic wine deserves its place in the Baron Phillipe de Rothschild portfolio.
Agneau blanc is produced at the famous Mouton Cadet winery in Bordeaux. The aim is to maintain a low fermentation temperature to preserve the natural expressive aromatic nature of the wine. On the nose there’s lemon peel, elderflower, verbena and delicate stone fruit. The palate is clean, crisp and refreshing with vibrant acidity and lots of citrus fruit with mineral notes on the finish. Just add sunshine!

Rimapere Sauvignon Blanc 2017, Marlborough, New Zealand
£21.95More info & buy Rimapere delivers pronounced aromatics of sage, conifer, ripe lemon, passion fruit, grapefruit, pine needles and steely minerality. The palate despite being vibrant and fresh, has a rich almost weighty texture. There is wonderful purity and complexity and a long intense finish. Rimapere is a very defined Sauvignon with tremendous concentration - its a million miles from those dilute New Zealand Sauvignon's that flood the shelves of UK supermarkets. The weight and intensity of Rimapere is likely to dominate delicate seafood dishes, so be sure to pair with a dish that has a little more intensity of flavour. Drink through 2020.

Aile d’Argent 2013, A.C Bordeaux£135.00 More info & buy Aile d'Argent 2013 possesses a deep golden yellow with a wonderful nose of grilled pineapple, peach, citrus rind, lightly toasted hazelnut and sweet spice. On the palate the oak provides a richness of texture, almost creamy but with a nice nip of acidity. There's a grapefruit like freshness wrapped up with ripe stone fruit and a hint of minerality. This is fabulous, and will continue to improve for at least six years.

The wine spends its maturation period in new and old oak which provides a wonderful richness and complexity.
