wine flight

IGP Méditerranée, Château de Vignelaure, Provence, 2020, France
Sauvignon blanc, Roussanne, Viognier (crab)
This very enticing full-bodied wine offers an intense nose with delicate flowers aromas of broom and acacia and brings freshness. The round texture is supported by hints of stone fruits, honey and crème patissière.

Premium Collection Amontillado “Tio Diego” Pago de Macharnudo, NV,
Valdespino Andalucia
100% Palomino (asparagus)
Very generous, the wine will reveal oxidized aromas as well as walnut fragrances, and toffee undertones.
The flavours are intertwined with dried fruit scents, a hint of leather and bread.

“Voskì”, Zorah, Vayots Dzor, Yeghegnadzor Valley, 2021, Armenia
Garandmak, Voskéat (rabbit)
The texture is rich, yet the wine is fresh. The nose is enticed with nuts and fruits fragrances. The generous palate offers pear and peach aromas, citrus undertones, a soft mineral finish and a creamy texture.

Etna Rosso “Circeno”, Terrazze dell’Etna, Sicilia, 2014, Italy
100% Nerello Mascalese (seabass)
This very complex wine develops sulfuric notes from the volcano soil, candied citrus undertones, cherry and mulberry fragrances with a touch of marzipan to bring sweetness while the acidity balances the body.

Givry 1er Cru “Le Clos du Gras Long” 2020, France
100% Pinot noir (chicken)
The warm vintage has offered a very opulent wine. With generous aromas of blackcurrant, to discover are a complex creamy texture, underwood fragrances and a discreet tannic finish.

or

Château Musar, Gaston Hochar, Beqaa, Lebanon, 2017
Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault, Carignan (lamb)
Very unique, cherry, mulberry and plum aromas are to be expected. The vintage is complex, with liquorice undertones, hints of tea tree and soft tannins. There is a beautiful balance between the tannins and the acidity.

Moscato d’Asti, Giovanni Vajra, Piemonte, 2023, Italy
100% Moscato (chocolate mousse)
This sparkling, sweet wine displays intense apricot fragrances along with fresh grape notes.
The texture is balanced by the aromas of stone fruits and beautiful softness and a fresh acidity.

or

“Kabir”Moscato di Pantelleria, Donnafugata, Sicilia, 2022, Italy
100% Zibbibo (Muscat d’Alexandire) (raspberry)
The wine is very refreshing, herbal, and fruity. Apricots and almonds undertones are to be expected along an opulent herbal fragrance. Noticeable are verbena and rosemary aromas, but also orange zest flavours.
