Decanter Review: Louis Tête, Brouilly, Beaujolais, France
Best drunk slightly chilled (and ideally alfesco), this is an ideal summer quaffer. The traditional carbonic maceration used in Beaujolais highlights the juicy fresh strawberry fruit of the Gamay grape on a tight and breezy palate. One to keep on standby in the dridge for barbecue emergencies.
Decanter Review: Domaine Charvin, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Rhône
A reassuringly lighter, more alluring Grenache. Delightful scented, warm red cherry fruit and a dusty tanning undertow and just enough mouthwatering acidity to balance. Decanter Review: Domaine Saumaize-Michelin Pouilly-Fuissé Intense lime and quince nose, with white flowers, tart apple and tangerine. Fine fruit clarity backed by saline acidity on the palate, smoky spice and hints of butter and honey. Multi-dimensional.
Ram6n Bilbao Edici6n Limitada Lias Verdeio 2015 // The Wine Merchant

wine, and a limey, minty freshness.
