Tasting notes

Start the day in style with a glass of Brut NV Champagne from Domaine Barons de Rothschild. This rich and beautifully balanced Champagne offers a creamy mouthfeel with a long nutty finish. The vast majority of the fruit comes from Grand Cru parcels and that’s clearly evident in the quality. After a glass of Champagne, Baronne Charlotte, a dry white Graves seems like the obvious choice. This classical blend of Semillion and Sauvignon Blanc delivers minerality and layers of citrus peel and toast.

Staying in Bordeaux, the next wine that naturally follows Baronne Charlotte would be Reserve Pauillac 2014 – this elegant blend of Merlot and Cabernet shows off an enticing yet relaxed nose of earthy spice and black fruit. From this point onward the intensity steps up a little; Los Vascos Grande Reserve brings together perfectly ripe fruit, layers of spice, cocoa and smoke. The penultimate wine can be lovingly referred to as ‘a bit of a beast’ – it’s full bodied, intense, very powerful yet soft and rounded. There’s nowhere to go after a wine of such magnitude, apart from Port or maybe brandy.

with that in mind, you’ll be thankful we’ve included a bottle of Fonseca crusted Port. This wine requires gentle decanting, but patience will be rewarded. After an hour in the decanter this port boasts notes of cocoa, dried prune, fruitcake, blackberry and sweet spice.
