January 3rd Château Talbot 2016, 6 litre Imperial bottle – Left Bank style in it’s best!
Château Talbot is one of the oldest wineries in Bordeaux and was founded by Sir John Talbot, an English military commander who was defeated at the battle of Castillon in 1453, which allowed Bordeaux and its vineyards to slip back into French control after the Hundred Years’ War. In 1855, Talbot was promoted as a fourth classified growth of Saint-Julien and represents the state of mind we find in left bank wines.
January 10th Quinta da Leda 2014, 5 litre McKenzie bottle – The estate where Barca Velha grapes are coming.
Quinta da Leda is part of Dona Antónia Adelaide Ferreira’s heritage and is the estate where Barca Velha grapes are coming from. This property represents today the heart of Casa Ferreirinha and only the best plots are chosen to compose the blend of the wine with its name.
January 17th Quinta do Crasto Reserva Vinhas Velhas 2015, 18 litre Solomon bottle – The real Château culture in the Douro Valley!
With more than 400 years of history, Quinta do Crasto, is one of the most emblematic wine producers in the Douro. Their “Reserva” wines are coming from a selection of more than a dozen different grape varieties and special plots like Maria Teresa and Vinha da Ponte.
January 24th San Román 2011, 18 litre Solomon bottle – Big, bold and 100% Tinta de Toro.
San Román wines are fully representative of the extreme continental climate of Toro and the oldest vineyards were planted with the original rootstock because there is no Phylloxera in the sand where these vines are sited.
January 31st Château Pontet-Canet 2007, 6 litre Imperial bottle – A quest for the ideal wine!
Classified as fifth Grand Cru from Pauillac by Napoleon Bonaparte in 1855, Pontet-Canet started to change the mindset of the region with their first trials over biodynamic and organic viticulture in 2004. Nowadays they play a leading role in the region by allowing the terroir to reclaim its origins, becoming one of the biggest icons of the left bank.
