Unit Volume: 750ml

Cultivars:
Chardonnay (80%)
Pinot Noir (20%)

Nose: The nose shows complex aromas of dried fruits, and elegant white flowers.

Palate: It has flavours of white truffles and intriguing elements from the terroir - this is Champagne for connoisseurs. It has a very chalky, powerful, fresh finish.

Notes: Deeply anchored in their ancestral roots, and passionately attached to their land, the Coutelas family cultivate their vines on the slopes around Villers sous Chatillon and the neighbouring villages, using sustainable viticulture. The Cuvee 1809 from Coutelas is spectacular Champagne composed of 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir from vines of over 40 years old. It is vinified in oak without malolactic fermentation and is aged for over eight years on the lees, on a cork, not a crown cap.

Cuvée 1809
A.D. Coutelas Cuvée Louis Victor Fut de Chene - Nv

Unit Volume: 750ml

Cultivars:
Chardonnay (34%)
Pinot Noir (33%)
Pinot Meunier (33%)

Nose: Its bouquet releases notes of white flower along with subtle woody aromas.

Palate: The attack on the palate is generous and lively. A lush explosion of complex aromas, followed by a fresh acidity to finish on notes of citrus.

Notes: Angelique and Damien have 17.5 acres, mostly in Villers-sous-Chatillon, but also in Ambonny, Bouzy, Vitry-la-Francois and Troissy. Their family has been growing since 1809 and started making their own Champagnes in the '20s. The majority of their vines are over 60 years in age, and all the work in the vineyards and cellar is done by hand. The Louis Victor from Coutelas is made in the solera style, from one large barrel containing a perpetual blend. Coutelas lists this as composed of 1/3 each Chardonnay, Meunier and Pinot Noir, but in fact, it is refreshed with 1/4 of the best wine vinified in a given year, while another 1/4 is taken out and bottled. This solera was started in 2007, and the current batch has wine as young as 2014 in it.

De Trafford Wines Vin De Paille Straw Wine - 2006

Unit Volume: 375ml

Cultivars:
Chenin Blanc (100%)

Nose: Quite closed shortly after bottling, but with great intensity. A little more lime/lemon character together with the usual dried apricot, nuts, honey and buttered toast on the nose.

Palate: The palate is intensely sweet yet not cloying, fresh and lively yet richly oxidative with a long clean and complex finish.

Notes: The grapes were picked at optimum ripeness and laid out on drying racks in 70% shade for 3 weeks. This allows the grapes to concentrate sugars, acids and flavors, before re-harvesting in the cool mornings. Fermented with natural yeasts and matured for 21 months using mostly new 225 l oak barrels – 60% French and 40% American. Racked while in barrel to remove heavy sediment and lightly bentonite fined. 15% 2007 included. The VA of the 2007 portion was reduced by about 20%. These are naturally made, living wines which may deposit a sediment and / or tartrate crystals – a healthy sign of a handcrafted wine.
