Chablis 2018 12.5% ABV
Lavantureux Frères/ Burgundy, France
A classic Chablis, crisp and light with medium body.
On the nose, this Chablis expresses itself to the full, with beautiful floral aromas gently carried by the wine’s freshness. On the palate, the refined bouquet develops citrus notes before white flower and fruit aromas come through again. Fresh, supple and precise, it possesses a mineral intensity which gives it a lovely length on the palate.
Lavantureux’ Estate is a family vineyard, located in Lignorelles, passed through many successive generations. Today, David and Arnaud perpetuate the family history with Lavantureux Frères.
Perfect with fish, shellfish, chicken and light cheeses
Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2016 14.5% ABV
Les Roches Noires
Barton & Guestier/ Rhone Valley, France
Deep cherry red in colour with a complex nose of ripe blueberry and plum and licorice hints. Rich on the palate, mixing the character of the fruit with the warmth of the spices, leading onto a round finish with lively notes of mint.
The company’s founder, Thomas Barton left his native Ireland in the beginning of the 18th century and emigrated to Bordeaux when he was just 30 years old. In 1802 Hugh Barton, his grandson and successor, teamed up with Daniel Guestier, a French trader, to create Barton & Guestier which is today the oldest wine merchant established in Bordeaux.
Perfect with spicy food, stew, game and cheese.
Before Harvey's became the Brewery it is today, the company was already an established Wine and Spirit Merchant in Sussex, with records showing the delivery of Old Red Port, Sherry and Claret to Lewes and it's surrounding villages since the 1790's.
