Pierre Paillard Champagne – This was a favourite of the evening – it was well balanced and so smooth, it felt like it was drinking chocolate milk (?!)
Cheateau de Sancerre – not sweet and not oaky, has a slight mineral flavour but easy to drink.
Garnier Chablis – this unoaked chardonnay is bright, crisp and has a bit of a mineral flavour to it.
Joseph Drouhin Laforet Pinot Noir – Pinot Noir is everyone’s favourite wine at the moment. This one is slightly sweet with berry notes but light and easy to drink.
Chateau Argadens Rouge AOC Bordeaux Superieur – this wine was well balanced, soft, drinkable but with flavourful depth
The Halos de Jupiter Cotes du Rhone – another one of the favourites that evening as well it’s intense – it’s smooth but minerally and spicy.
Louis Bernard Chateauneuf du Pape – this red is well balanced and has a long finish. It’s got a hint of sweetness to it but a mostly spicy, earthy taste.
