Domaine des Grands Fers ‘Les Cotes’ Fleurie AOC
Situated in the heart of Fleurie, the Domaine des Grands Fers has been in Christian Bernard’s family since the turn of the last century. He owns a total of 10.3 hectares of Gamay planted on several different terroirs in the Cru. All are southeast facing slopes in the famous Madone terroir.
The classic Fleurie characteristics, including the wines’ floral perfume notes, are the result of the incredible soils of crushed and crystalized ancient red granite. Christian ferments all his different terroirs separately, whole cluster, with a classic carbonic maceration for a twelve day period. After a six month elevage in oak foudres, he blends his various plots into what becomes his signature Estate bottling. This is a beautiful wine showing attractive berry fruits such as red current, strawberry and cherry with spice and mineral notes. A wine of exceptional quality.

La Maialina Chianti DOCG 2014
A gorgeous wine, fresh, vibrant and utterly impeccable. The floral aromatics render an impression of accessibility but the darkness and richness of the fruit that follow hint at a far more important pedigree. Dark red berries, flowers and minerals add the final notes of complexity on the impressive finish. A great wine to pair with duck.

In the mouth, Valmiñor combines fruity flavours and freshness with a rounded acidity, resulting in a balanced wine that boasts an opulent taste with elegant aromas and slight spritziness.
