Winter Tasting at Chiswick

25 November 2015 by Johannes

It’s getting cold outside and the nights are drawing in, so to cheer up Chiswick we will be hosting our annual winter tasting on Sunday 29 November. This year we will be showing 30 different wines from around the world, bottles will be open from 12 noon onwards.

Most people will be starting with our fabulous Champagne Gallimard Vintage 2009: a wonderfully rich Pinot Noir dominated cuvée with a dense mousse and lots of luxurious pudding fruit flavours. There will also be the super-fresh, brisk Champagne Philipponnat, a zesty Non-Dosage. For fans of drier styles of Champagne, this may well be the highlight of the tasting.

Dario from Les Caves de Pyrene will be presenting a wide selection of premium organic and biodynamic wines. Highlights include the Albert Mann Pinot Gris Cuvée Albert, a wonderfully expressive Alsatian white; the Mas de Daumas Gassac Blanc, arguably the Languedoc’s most prestigious white wine; and the elegant Foradori Rosso. A lighter-bodied red made from the Teroldego grape in the Adige Valley.

Matt from Fields, Morris & Verdin will be taking us through some special North American wines, such as the sensual Drouhin Pinot Noir from Dundee Hills in Oregon; and the aristocratic Frog’s Leap Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. A rather special Nebbiolo, the Antonio Vallana Gattinara will also be open.

To finish, there will be an array of premium Madeiras from D’Oliveiras, including the stunning 1996 Malvasia. Nothing could be more festive and warming this time of year.
