Friday 4th and Saturday 5th September

2000 Ch. Monbousquet, Grand Cru, St Emilion, Bordeaux

£30 per 125ml glass. Current wine list price - £215

Tonight, I have chosen a beautiful, countrified St. Emilion called Ch. Monbousquet. This wine estate has a magnificent private park, recently acquired and renovated by Gerard Perse. The vineyards are primarily planted with Merlot, as well as substantial Cabernet Franc and some Cabernet Sauvignon.

The 2000 vintage is a dramatic, full fruited wine of breadth and depth, richly perfumed with complex nuances of smoke and earth. This wine compares favourably with the wines of both Cheval Blanc and Ausone, but at one-fifth of their price.

This is a full bodied, powerful wine with dense layers of ripe black fruits, spices, mocha and firm tannins. It shows off a sexy, black cherry fruit centre overlaid with tantalizing camphor and smoke. Each component stands tall, but lays on top of one another in such an interconnected and harmonious fashion that it makes you want to swoon. The texture is deceptively silky and light in the face of such pronounced smokiness and solid rich fruit. The wine is drinking perfectly right now but has decades of lifetime ahead of it.


Friday 11th and Saturday 12th September

2010 Sassicaia, Tenuta San Guido, Tuscany, Italy

£35 per 125ml glass. Current wine list price - £240

Tonight, I have selected one of the most exciting red wines from Tuscany. Tenuta San Guido is named after the Saint Guido della Gherardesca who lived during the 11th century. The region is located on the Tyrrhenian coast, between Leghorn and Grosseto in Maremma and it stretches for 13 km from the sea to the hills. This wine is a blend of 85 percent Cabernet Sauvignon and 15 percent Cabernet Franc. Planted on plots of land with a strong presence of limestone, this terroir is rich in rocks and clay at around 100 to 300 metres above sea level. The wine is aged for 24 months in French oak barriques and a few more months in the bottle before release. This wine shows extreme purity that brings many beautiful aromas into startling focus and clarity. Lingering tones of black fruit and oriental spice add subtle shades at the back. The wine most certainly shows its pedigree in the exciting and beautifully balanced manner it evolves in the glass. It tells a new story each time you return to observe the bouquet. Savoury flavours of tilled earth, sweet spice and dense blackberry and cassis fruit, this wine is very fresh and perfumed, but with real substance beneath. There is excellent acidity and tannins throughout.
