A beautiful Bordeaux - Esprit Bel Air La Royere 2016 and a comic book describing the history of wines since the Ancient Times. You can choose between the French and the English version.


About the book :

Oenophile Benoist Simmat and artist Daniel Casanave tell the story of wine from its origins in the Mediterranean to the globalised industry of the 21st century. Tracing the innovations that have accompanied this ancient art and science, from oak-barrel ageing to the invention of the bottle, Wine: A Graphic History will leave readers with a fresh and full-bodied view of our own drinking culture

Viticulture : Sustainable farming – the domaine is now organic certified. Old vines (30 years). Manual harvest.

Tasting notes: 

This cuvée opens with notes of black fruit and elegant oak. Volume, softness, supple and silky tannins, persistence: for the mind, but also for the body.

It is a complex, silky and smooth wine that will benefit decanting.  It then develops aromas of cherry, raspberry, blackcurrant and hints of spice and liquorice. Very well balanced, almost jammy, this wine is perfect on a steak or even on white meats.
