Mike's Tip

Now here is a wine variety you will not find anywhere outside of Corsica. My understanding is that they traditionally looked for red wines meant to be drank young and in warm weather. What you get is a light, fruity red with heavy tannin. Perfect for a roast chicken.

You may ask "what is this wine doing here" ?, and I have a simple answer. Despite California not being located on Corsica, it is still bloody good ! :-) Classic American Cabernet with a quality, price ratio that deserves our attention - Full and balanced. Its great.

Mike's Tip

A medium bodied fruity red, that is looking for some salami and cheese for its' tannins to bite into. Look for red fruits and anis flavours.

Mike's Tip

A mystery and a pleasure. Dark and rusty in colour, with a hint of vanilla and anis on the nose. Pair with cold smoked meats and strong cheese for that sunset in the garden.

Mike's Tip

The winemaker describes this wine as a bit "savage". Black fruits and a bit spicy, this is a wine of character with a Hachette recommendation (not many Corsican wines do!)

Mike's Tip

Harvested from a selection of the finest vineyards of Corsica's east coast, this is a delicate mix of flowers and salt wrapped up in a pale white robe. This is a wine that will make any outdoor meal feel like a holiday.

Mike's Tip

This mix of Vermentino and Chardonnay delivers a fuller flavour of flowers and pineapple. A bit longer in the finish, but still light and fruity. Will do well with salmon on the grill.

Mike's Tip

Look here for a mix of citrus and white tree fruit like pears and red apple. Vermentino is a late harvest grape, and this one had the whole summer to soak up the Corsican sunshine.

Mike's Tip

My favourite white in the box. A mix of minerals and anis, with a long citrus tail that fills your mouth with a lovely bouquet of sunshine. A perfect summer wine that you will want to have on the table all summer.

An interesting mix of minerals and that light citrus flavour that is the central theme of Vermentino. Pair with white fish, or other sea food for best results.

Mike's Tip

And now for something completely different. A provincial Corsican grape grown in the hills surrounding the Pont du Gard. A medium bodied red with a subtle, but unmistakeable pepper flavour. Not overpowering or unpleasant, but you can't miss it. Enjoy it !

  • vivino: 3.7
  • Price: 279 Kč

Mike's Tip

A power wine from the Rhone valley that will bring you as close as you can get to Chateau Neuf as you can get without paying the price. This is primarily a Grenache and Syrah blend from the vineyards around Avignon that benefits from the warm Mistral winds.

Mike's Tip

Big, black cherries is what you can expect in this Malbec from Cahors. A mix of heavy black fruit, tannin and vanilla. Aged 6 months in steel, this is a casual wine that will go best with cheese.

Mike's Tip

A dry red wine with deep colour and few flaws. Look for a ripe plum flavor and a very dry finish. Pair with strong red meats and let breath for 1 hour before drinking.

Mike's Tip

A true "potpourri" of southern Rhone grapes. This mix of Carrignan, Grenache, Marselan, and Syrah has all the foundations of its big brothers in the region. Let this wine breath for an hour or decant and you will have a lovely wine for any white or red meat dish.

A lovely balance of minerals and fruit from this high end producer near to Chablis. Noted for exceptional balance, this is an easy to drink wine aged only in the tank and bottle.

Mike's Tip

Produced by an established French "Negociant", they taken grapes from various growers and created something of their own for 5 generations. These Chardonnay grapes were taken from the Burgundy region around Macon, so look for a hint of Chablis character.

Sometimes you have to leave it up to the locals, and this is a perfect example. A mix of six grape varieties from the Languedoc region. Floral aroma and a crisp but not biting flavor.

Half way between Toulouse and Bordeaux, this south / west producer produces regional wines of character. The "Tattoo" Sauvignon and Gros Manseng blend delivers a light blend of peach and flowers with low acidity.

Mike's Tip

For me the two top regions for Sauvignon Blanc are Marlborough and the Loire, and this is a great example of the second. Gooseberries have a sweet & sour flavor with distinctive "nettle" flavor. This wine will take you away to your cottage garden.

Very old Europe and very, very good. This Malbec varietal from Bordeaux is full of fruit and earth. Tobacco, chocolate and very ripe red fruits. The main course and dessert all in one go.

I am delighted to introduce our members to our first Corsican wine in IWCoK history. Any of you who have been there know that the island not only has beautiful beaches, but also fantastic old school wines that you can't find anywhere else. This winery's slogan is "Wine with a soul", and I am sure you will find one here.

Mike's Tip

An elegant Bordeaux from the southern region of Graves. 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20 % Merlot, you will experience all the fruitiness and dry finish that both grapes bring to the table. The mouth brings a powerful front end of cherry and plum, while the finish is earthy with a vanilla tone. Elegant and ideal for a fancy dinner of grilled meat

Mike's Tip

Classic Bordeaux blend. Cabernet, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec - there is nothing left to add ! Aged 10 months in American oak, this is a well rounded easy to drink full bodied red suitable for anything you are serving tonight. Steaks, chicken of chips on the sofa with Netflix, you are covered.

  • Price: 259 Kč

Mike's Tip

Syrah or Shiraz in some parts of the world is known as a spicy red, that is meant to be drank with hearty red meat or stew. This wine comes from the southern region of Nimes known for its Roman history and monuments. Think of this wine as more intellectual than centurion as it is usually light and more suited for pork and grilled cheese.

Mike's Tip

Light… This is the best description I can give to this cuvee of Nielluccio, Pinot Noir and Syrah toned down to a tame 12% alcohol. This is a lunch wine best paired with pork or chicken. Fruity and a bit acidic, this is a wine that must be drank with food at a table. Forget the sofa and chips here.

Petit Chablis – Domaine Passy Le Clou

  • Supplier: Le Marché
  • Box: A Lite French Breeze
  • Price: 399 Kč

Mike's Tip

The first thing to know about any Chablis, is this is Chardonnay pure and simple. It comes from a land full of lime stone, that gives it it's distinct dry and crisp flavour. This wine has all that at a price that will not break the bank. Oysters or white fish will be your best bet.

Sylvaner Vieilles Vignes

Sylvaner

Wine description:

  • Country: France
  • Grape: Sylvaner

  • Style: Floral sweet semidry white wine
  • Drink: Wine with potencial 2 to 5 years
  • Supplier: Le Marché
  • Box: A Lite French Breeze
  • Price: 269 Kč

Mike's Tip

Sylvaner is similar to Riesling in many ways. High in acidity and sugar, making for a tart full bodied wine. This will be a great wine with Asian food. Sushi with wasabi will be a perfect companion. If you drink it on its own, be prepared for a very full (semi sweet) flavour.

Viognier – Florent Descombes

Wine description:

  • Country: France
  • Grape: Viogner
  • Alcohol: 12,5%
  • Style: Medium-bodied dry white wine
  • Drink: Wine for immediate consumption
  • Supplier: Le Marché
  • Box: A Lite French Breeze
  • Price: 189 Kč

Mike's Tip

Viognier is not a grape you come across every day. Noted for a heavy floral nose and its full body, this wine will make a big first impression . At the same time it is quite dry, so after a full fluty and flowery greeting, you will be left with a clan crisp finish.

Chateau Vignol, Bordeaux Supérieur

  • Drink: Wine with potencial 2 to 5 years
  • Supplier: Le Marché
  • Box: Hearty and Healthy
  • Price: 249 Kč

Mike's Tip

This chateau sits in the heart of the Entre deux mers region of Bordeaux, right between the Garonne and Dordogne rivers. Look for dark (bitter) chocolate and black current. Bold, tannic and dry to the bone. Will go best with red meat.

Plan de Dieu – Cotes du Rhone Villages

Plan De Dieu

  • Supplier: Le Marché
  • Price: 309 Kč

Mike's Tip

The name of this Rhone blend comes from the middle ages when crossing a bandit infested forest could cost you your life. God's Plain (Plan de Dieu) was the salvation on the other side. Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre, all aged in oak for 12 months gives this ruby red treat a distinct flavor.

Mike's Tip

A fine white from Bordeaux mixing Semillon and sauvignon. Aging in oak brings an added complexity to this classic blend. Balanced but not too soft, this wine will go well with any white meat or fish.

Mike's Tip

The family Doublet has a solid presence in Bordeaux, and above all a chateaux styled in a "Louisiana" style. This blend of sauvignon blanc and Semillon from way down south takes us to the next level. Grapefruit, fresh cut grass and a fabulous balance for such a dry wine. Loved it!

Mike's Tip

We know the label is an "all or nothing" attraction. "Distinct" is the word we use for this kind of design. The wine though is all flavor. Tropical fruits and plenty of body that will go will with salad or white meats.

Mike's Tip

A Bordeaux white with a touch of Semillon to a Sauvignon blanc base. Expect a clean, fresh apple and lime taste with a touch of nettles and grass. Refreshing and ideal for white fish.
