FEATURED WINES

Gold Medal Winning Cahors from Gaudou. $14.95/Bottle. Client Favourite. Superb BBQ and Cottage Wine.

It never ceases to amaze me that wine this good can cost so little.

TRADITION CAHORS MALBEC BY CHATEAU DE GAUDOU 2015

Gold Medal – Gilbert & Gaillard 2016


Bottle Price : $14.95

Case Price : $179.40

Winery : Château de Gaudou

Wine Region : Cahors (France), France (France)

Bottle Per Case : 12 x 750 ml

Deep colour. Young, expressive nose showing a bouquet of red and black fruits and floral undertones. Supple mouthfeel with soft stuffing, melted tannins and notable fruit. A good classic Cahors that is already very enjoyable.

At $14.95/Bottle the Tradition is a hard wine to compete with. For those of you that feel you need or want something slightly more refined, there are still some cases of Chateau de Gaudou’s 95 point 2013 Renaissance remaining. For your reading pleasure, i am posting the review for the 2013 Renaissance below.
“Fresh, perfumed and intricate, the nose is packed with dark black fruits, a generous helping of nutmeg and spice and all interlaced with polished oak. The palate offers lovely depth and complexity with concentrated fruit, silky tannins and beautiful mineral freshness. A serious wine, and will keep for 3-5 years.”

It feels like Spring outside today. I am already thinking about opening up the cottage and grilling on the deck in our backyard. This usually involves hosting friends, family, clients or even a mix of all. For these sorts of situations, you often need a crowd pleaser of a wine that is easy on the wallet. Chateau de Gaudou’s Tradition is perfect for these situations. We brought a lot this time, so don’t be afraid to order a few cases as once it is gone, it will be a while before it comes back.

I WOULD QUICKLY LIKE TO APOLOGIZE FOR PUTTING THE WRONG PRICE IN YESTERDAY’S EMAIL FOR THE BIONDI SANTI. THE CORRECT PRICE WAS LISTED ON THE WEBSITE.

Avid readers of this email will know that we have spent 3 of the last 4 weeks travelling Europe at trade shows and visiting vineyards sourcing the world’s most interesting and delicious wines. We think we have found many and are excited to bring them to you. We always welcome comments from clients, so feel free to reach out.

In honour of it kind of feeling like Spring outside, i have included a client favourite Rose. This Rose from Baudry Dutour has been putting a smile on clients faces for a long time. It has that perfect salmon colour with a long finish and a nice balance between fruit and minerality.

I would like to wish everyone a wonderful week.

All the best.
