Olivier Schanne crush
Côte Rôtie - Grandes Places - Clusel Roch 2013
Get away from the big brands, dare to be authentic. A very successful 100% Syrah Côte Rôtie. The 80 year old vines, on 1 hectare, give a wine of a unique concentration and smoothness. Just over 3,000 bottles.
Aromas of black fruits, pepper and truffles. Power and elegance at the same time, a concentrate of happiness. To be tasted at 18° maximum, blind.
A great wine, to have absolutely in its cellar, for the beautiful occasions between friends.
Discovery of the moment
Montlouis sur Loire
Domaine La Grange Tiphaine
A great white wine from the Loire, Montlouis is the wine of fine dining and the ideal companion for fine cuisine.
In the heart of the Touraine region, this wine, made from the Chenin Blanc grape variety, is made for pleasure, with a brilliant golden yellow colour and a fruity nose of pear, complex and powerful. A fat and harmonious mouth, with an elegant complexity and a remarkable length in the mouth.
To be enjoyed with classic French dishes revisited by Fabrice Salvador !
