Chateau Hostens-Picant, – Bordeaux €55.00
  The robe is deep red with purple tones. At first, the aromatic range expresses black fruit such as blueberry,
blackcurrant, then it is followed by spices and Morello cherry. From the start the mouth is very ample and well-rounded,
synonymous with ripeness. It shows fine and elegant tannins but also a pleasantly lasting finale.
Chateauneuf du Pape – Domaine Juliette Avril €62.50
  This noble cuvée boasts a fabulous garnet red robe and a powerful flavour when enjoyed still young.
The concentration is there, with obvious richness or spices, scents of the “garrigue” and quince type fruit,
offering just the right amount of acidity that is conducive to cellar aging. The process takes place slowly but surely.
While the palate slowly develops on these wild flavours, silky tannins confirm the wine’s exceptional depth.
