What an exciting few weeks it has been at Bon Coeur with our Christmas wine tastings taking place across the country. We kicked off our tastings on Monday 21st November in central London with our Newmarket tasting the following evening at the Jockey Club Rooms.
The next week proved even busier with our northern wine tastings, Monday we headed up to Matfen Hall Hotel for our Northumberland tasting, Tuesday we were kindly welcomed into Birdsall House, Malton by Tom Willoughby and Thursday we were on home soil at Moor Park with our final tasting of the season.
It was great to see so many of our customers at the tastings as well as some welcomed new faces. We were delighted to be showing over 60 wines with half of them new additions to our list. A great chance for our customers to try something new and discover some new favourites for the festive season.
We had some great feedback on the wines and I have highlighted our top selling wines from our Christmas wine tastings.
Jacques Boncoeur Brut Reserve Champagne N.V.
Our award winning house Champagne that gives many Grand Marques a run for their money.
Vilarnau Cava Brut Reserva, Spain N.V.
Our new Cava has really caused a stir, fantastic quality, great label and our first parcel sold out immediately.
Macon Blanc, Vignerons Des Terre Secretes, France 2014
Really impressive Macon, seriously over-delivers and at £8.99 you can’t go wrong.
Wild Rock ‘Infamous Goose’ Sauvignon Blanc, New Zealand 2015
Delicious Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc from top New Zealand producer Wild Rock.
Cune Monopole Unoaked Blanco Rioja, Spain 2015
Bored of Chardonnay, this white Rioja is unoaked and really hits the spot.
Fiano, Mezzogiorno IGT, Italy 2014
Easy drinking and excellent value for money. Fantastic for Christmas parties.
Coteaux Bourgignonne, Maison Roche De Bellene 2014
Excellent value Red Burgundy from Nicolas Potel at Maison Roche de Bellene. 70% Gamay and 30% Pinot Noir, easy drinking and perfect for over Christmas.
Marques De Murrieta Reserva Rioja 2010
A favourite in the office too – impressive, single estate Rioja, traditional in style and very elegant.
Chateau Tour Saint Bonnet, Cru Bourgeois 2008
Top selling Claret from the tasting and one of James Goodhart’s favourite Cru Bourgeois. A big name and hugely popular.
Domaine De Tholomies ‘La Chapelle’ Syrah/Grenache 2014
Big, bold and packed full of flavour, this new organic wine has made quite an impression. Well worth trying if you haven’t done so already.
