  • Price: 219 Kč

Mike's Tip

Syrah and Grenache are two varieties you will find across the south of France, dry and spicy, it is best drank with meats and stews. This is not a wine that lingers in your mouth after your swallow. Short and a bit tannic. Pair with a steak.

Mike's Tip

What do you drink when touring the Chateau of the Loire Valley? A Sauvignon Blanc of course, and this is your wine. With it's colder climate, Sauvignon becomes more crisp. As it is a bit sharp, it does really well with fatty fish like salmon or tuna.

This is one your mouth will not forget soon. Full of acidity but with a dry finish. Look for the grapes among the slate ! This is the wine of the Rhine, and the wine of royalty - enjoy.

Mike's Tip

Red current and raspberry. This blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon has a bit more tannin in the mouth and at 13% makes for a more refreshing drink.

Mike's Tip

One of my favorite grape varieties. Bourgueil gets its strong red fruit aromas and smoky nose from the chalky terroir, called “Tuffeaux”. This is a light to medium bodied red with soft tannins and a fine finish. Perfect wine to serve with a "Pepka" or other baked cheese.

Mike's Tip

This Bordeaux "Superieur" made from Merlot makes for a very fruity red perfect for a steak of pork chop. Although the gold medal achievements are fairly rare, it is a consistent podium finisher with a collection of top 3 finishes from across the world. Classic presentation for a true star.

Mike's Tip

A blend of Grenache, Syrah and Carignan, this ruby red has a bit of spice and a long tail making it great for heavy / saucy dishes. And if you like it, this is a great value wine to put under the house for a few years. It will only get better!

This unusual cuvee is made from Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay, with a brilliant light yellow color. In the nose we have peach, pineapple and a slightly spicy touch. Refreshing and fruity with a touch of acidity. Serve with pasta.

Mike's Tip

French Chardonnay's are different. Less banana and butter and more peach and white fruit making it fresher. This comes from its terroir in the Loire with much milder temperatures. Serve with salmon and you will not be disappointed.

White pears and grapefruit, wrapped up in a vanilla robe. Sound complicated ? It's not. This is a fresh wine with hints of these fruits making all the more interesting. Serve cold and with food.

Mike's Tip

As the name suggests, the 45 year old vines producing this wine are no new comers. Mature and tempered, this wine blends four varieties into a slightly tannic, but well balanced drink. Pair with soft cheese, salami or pasta.

Mike's Tip

WOW - the best "Merlot" I have had for ages. It is really 80% aged Merlot and 20% Grenache that was put together by what is my favorite Rhone Valley wine maker at the moment. Like all his wines, this is a natural unfiltered affair, so let it breath and be careful with getting the last bits out of the bottle. My drink of choice these days ...

An absolute pleasure of a lightly oaked chardonnay from the Rhone Valley. Soft yet full of flavor, you get lots of banana and butter from this superior winery. You will love it!

Mike's Tip

Sauvignon Blanc is the dominant white variety from the Loire valley. Not as grassy as Sauvignon from other parts of the world, but fresh and clean with a lovely mineral and citrus flavor. Always great with a light meal when you want flavor, but not something heavy.

Mike's Tip

A ruby red Merlot from a dry and warm part of the country. What this wine lacks in depth, it makes up for in a smooth presentation. Light and clear, this is a perfect lunch wine when you want only a glass. Serve with a sandwich and fries.

A deep, dark blend of Grenache, Mourvedre, and Marselan that will deliver a punch that you never saw coming. Flavor this smooth we normally find only in wines at a 40% premium. Lovely for sipping or with red meat. A real treat.

This wine is a mix of Tempranillo and Grenacha, making it a fruit, cherry filled treat. A super benefit of this full bodied bio bomb is there are no sulphates added. You got it, drink with no regret.

For starters, this is a bio dynamic wine from start to finish. Second this is a grape you have never tried before. So get ready for a ride of dried fruits and nuts in a full bodied yeasty flavor. A buttery wine with a long finish. Perfect for fish.

Our first entry in the "natural" wine category this month. Look for a light but oily finish with a big helping of minerals. Kind of like what you would get from the run off of smashing exotic fruits on a cliff.

Since we did Primitivo last month, we needed a full bodied red that even your mother in law will like. Malbec is known for its' round mouth, and fruity blueberry tones and chocolate finish. Not a desert, but a bottle you will definitely finish.

Albeit a French wine, this white will appeal to lovers of Czech wine. Exceptionally high in acidity, this one is best paired with cold sea food. Not a wine for the sofa, but something fresh with a little bite to keep your mouth fresh and awake!

Stay with me here - this wine is exciting! From the first sip the touch of Cabernet Franc pounds you with fruit, then the Merlot comes and gives you some lovely tannin. For those who prefer something other than Cabernet Sauvignon in their Bordeaux, this will will not dissapoint (just look at the score!)

This is a suprisingly light blend of Syrah and Grenache that will do will with pork or even fish. You get a little spice of the Syrah at the end, but nothing overpowering. An everyday red for any occasion.

Mike's Tip

No surprise that this was a 90 Parker point wine - an absolute delight from the Rhone. I am not a huge Grenache fan myself, and I would have never picked this wine as this variety. Smooth, fruity and a bit sweet, this is a red meat wine that will take you to Provence with the first sip.

Mike's Tip

The rose color of this wine is beautiful to start with, and the mix of 3 grapes give it a balanced fruit taste. Best served very cold on a hot summer evening with friends. It will dissapear the minute you open it.

If this Pinot did not come in a bottle, you would swear that there is nothing wet about its' content. Aged for 12 months in large barrels, bone dry yet very aromatic. Lovely from the start and pair with light foods.

Mike's Tip

This highly rated Riesling has a very dry, mineral flavor that is crisp and very short on the palate. Aged for 12 months in large barrels, look for nutmeg and a chalky flavor. Indeed, a bit "nuts".

Mike's Tip

This is a 50/50 blend of Sauvignon and Colombard (a grape variety that you may remember from other wines we have had from the south of France). A nice balance of floral and citrus tones. Not too much acidity and light enough for a weekend lunch date.

Mike's Tip

Although this blend is 60% Malbec, the addition of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot make it less chocolate and more spice and tannin.. The spices have been tamed with 6 months of aging in French oak, but the tannin is still very pronounced. This means it is more a food wine than one for easy sipping. Pair it with beef or gulash. You will want something for the acidity to cut though.

Elegant and pleasant for any occasion. This is a “Go to” red for any occasion when you want to relax. Full bodied and very round, this is a wine perfect for steaks of a movie on the sofa. Trust me, you are going to want more of this.

Mike's Tip

What a great ambassador for a grape that we don’t get too many chances to try. If “Smokey” comes to mind, you are spot on. Get past the smoke, you will find a medium bodied red with a little spice and red fruits. Best served with white meat, port or chicken will do well, and do not let the nose put you off. A wine with a lot of character.

Mike's Tip

This light and fruity merlot will go best with white meats, fish or even a salad. Its has just a hint of pepper, but by no means is it overpowering or unpleasant. The fruits in this wine jump right out at you. Exactly what a young and playful wine should be. Definitely smooth enough for drinking on its own or.

Mike's Tip

Very, very impressive. For those who love a chardonnay full of vanilla, oak and butter, look no further. Villard have a long history of winemaking in France, and this has come through is this very sophisticated white. The tail on this cannon with for sure “Love you long time” ;-)

Mike's Tip

It is not often that you find a white wine with 14.5% alcohol, and when you do it better have the character to pull it off. This wine has that “something” that makes it work. Look for a mouthful of pears and mango and a slightly pronounced mineral flavor. And with many Chardonnay of this caliber long tail. A perfect wine for salmon.

Mike's Tip

Torrontes is a grape known for its floral tones and is typically very light in color and taste. Look for white fruits, like melon, peach and banana. I found a lot of that in the tail making this wine much fuller that similar ones that I have tasted. Try this food with some sushi or a tikala masala. It has enough flavor to hold its one with something a bit spicy.

Mike's Tip

This is an easy go to chardonnay for those who like that classic long finish without the overbearing flavor of oak. The winery makes a big point about picking these grapes only in the morning, which I take to mean that it lacks any other remarkable quality. Don’t get me wrong, this is a entry level white that holds its own in its price range, and a solid Vivino rating stands behind it.

Wine description:

Mike's Tip

Like all the wines of this region of the Rhone, be ready for a big robust flavor that will hold its own with any big chunk of red meat. The Grenache gives its its character, and the Syrah it’s elegance. Expect a bit of pepper in the tail, and make sure to let this wine breath before drinking. (this is the one you save for relaxing on the sofa ;-)

Black Currant. If you miss this it can only mean you just brushed your teeth ;-). Much deeper in color, and draped in black fruit (berries and cassis). This wine will do well with white meat and salami. Mest to stay clear of steak and gulash.

Mike's Tip

This is a very light red that may remind many of you of a Gamay. Very fruity and intended to drink slightly chilled. Will go best with salami or sausage, and a roasted chicken. This is definitely a wine to have with a meal or a snack outside. Not for a TV evening on the sofa.

I think it should be a crime to make a rose from Cabernet Frank as this grape makes such and exceptional red, but here we are. Very pale, and lots of black fruit and a touch of pepper. Pair with almost anything from pork to sushi.

Mike's Tip

Although a varietal Sauvignon, this wine is actually a cuvee of sauvignon from different parcels of the grower. Look for a nose full of grapefruit and cassis, and a full fresh acidic taste of green apple that will be a great pairing with tomato based soups, curries and all white fish.

Mike's Tip

Exceptionally subtle for a Muscadet. This grape can often have a very strong perfume, but this time we much softer tone and a nice nutty and mineral flavor. The alcohol content at just 11.5% also helps to make this super easy and enjoyable.

Mike's Tip

It is pretty rare that we have a Chennin Blanc in our box. This is a straw yellow delicate wine with a lemon flavor and a very long finish. From a steel tank, the taste is pure and fresh and will go great with a Vietnamese take away (really!)
