Louis Max |Pinot Noir – Climat Haute Vallée, Red |2013
Rich oaky nose and roasted beetroot with a hint of cumin and paprika. Drying and reasonably oaky with a black tea-flavoured finish.

M. Chapoutier |Marius -Vermentino, Terret,White |2014
Lively with zesty grapefruit, a white pepper spice and a tangy sour freshness giving it a zippy, clean vibe.
Pierrick Harang Wine |Cuvée Balthazar – Viognier,White |2014
Richer peach and apricot, on the nose. Tastes juicy and fresh while tense with acidity. Fresh and clean with a lingering apricot finish. Nicely done.
Grilled sea bass fillets, fennel and pomegranate slaw
Domaine de Valensac |Sauvignon,White |2014
Enticing lemongrass aroma and packed with tense freshness in the mouth. Green herbs and grass offset the crunchy lemon and lime fruit nicely, and it has a cleansing salty lick to finish.
La Croix Gratiot |Les Zazous,Red |2013
A pretty flora aroma with strawberry and raspberry. Good juicy fruit, easy-goingytannins and plenty of classic Pinot Noir character.
Veal Blanquette, Quinoa pilaf |
Domaines Paul Mas |Paul Mas Grenache Syrah,Red |2014
Generous cherry ripeness and black fruits with a little bit of creaminess. Gentle tannins and the kirsch flavour make it easy-drinking.
Domaine des Aspes |Chardonnay,White |2014
Crammed with nutty, waxy richness with a hint of olive oil. Ripe with tropical fruit and a creamy finish.
