Rebecca scored this wine: 96/100

This is a special product that I don’t see often in our market. The clear, colourless brandy comes in a pear-shaped bottle containing a whole pear, and the amount of pure pear flavour this brandy captures is simply amazing. Combined with some vanilla, and delicate floral notes, it’s a great buy and good value for money. A real show stopper host or hostess gift and wonderful addition to any bar. Absolutely one of the better brandies I’ve tasted!

Château Doisy-Védrines 2004

Sauternes A.C., France

Rebecca scored this wine: 92/100

A lovely, viscous, dense and syrupy wine, it is a great example of how Sauternes can age well, and at 14-years-of-age, this is just the beginning of its life. It can easily age for another 25 years. It boasts the perfect amount of acidity needed to balance the fruitiness of ripe apricot and peach, the sweetness of honey, as well as its nutty, and white flower notes. This Sauternes is deep gold in colour and a divine pleasure to sip!

Sentieri 2016

I love Etna Rosso wines as they are a great pairing solution for dishes that call for light red wines; or to have alongside a fish dish, when you feel like drinking red, not white. The grapes are grown in volcanic soils and at a high altitude, which gives this red a fresh and light quality, with elegant mineral notes. Made from the Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio grapes, it is light amber in colour, with low to no tannins, and offers notes of cocoa, chocolate, cinnamon, and red cherry, with medium-acidity.

Bertani Amarone Della Valpolicella 2015

Valpantena, Veneto D.O.C.G., Italy

Rebecca scored this wine: 90/100

Growing on the hillsides known as Valpantena – valley of the gods in Italian – this wine is a blend of Corvina, Veronese, and Rondinella. It’s full-bodied, rich, and intense with soft tannins, notes of cooked red fruit, wood, and earthiness. It can easily age for another 20 years, but it is also ready to be savoured right now. Lovely with braised meats, cheeses, and charcuterie.

Nostre Païs

Michel Gassier Nostre Païs 2015

Michel Gassier is an interesting winemaker, self-described as a “peasant-researcher”, he derives pleasure working the land and bringing its uniqueness to us through his wines. This one is a blend of Grenache, Syrah, Carignan, Cinsault, and Mourvedre. It’s rich with acidity and spice, which is well-balanced with red, ripe cherries and strawberries. Some time spent in oak contributes a pleasant vanilla aftertaste. Drink now or within the next two years.
