Sercial - 10 year Old Madeira (presented in a leather effect gift Box)
'Sercial and Barbeito seem like a marriage made in heaven and indeed Barbeito 10 Year Old Sercial Madeira tastes heavenly. My tasting note: 'Peachy pale tawny. Racy with that wonderful purity and acidity, yet heady and with massive depth of fruit. Tense, serious, complex. A marvel really. Only just off dry, this would make a fabulous aperitif.'

10 year Old Bual Madeira 50cl.
Blandys 10 Year Old Bual was aged for 10 years in seasoned American oak casks in the traditional Canteiro system, whereby the casks of this wine are gradually transferred from the top floors of the lodge, where it is naturally warmer, to the middle floors and eventually to the ground floor where it is cooler. During this totally natural ageing, the wine underwent regular racking before finally being bottled.
Colour and Appearance: clear, amber colour with tinges of gold on the rim. Nose: superbly complex. Great intensity, revealing a bouquet of dried fruits such as figs and prunes, with notes of almonds and oak and subtle hints of toffee and vanilla spice.

Mature orange colour and seductive aromas of fruit cake, honey and a touch of spice. Mellifluous, smooth and suave palate yet beautifully fresh with a dusting of tannic spice on the finish.

It can be appreciated as an apperitive or on any other occasion.

6 Cépages Vintage Champagne
Champagne Moutard Cuvée '6 Cépages' 2009 is a rare vintage champagne, made in very small quantities with 'forgotten' grape varieties Arbane, Petit Meslier and Pinot Blanc, which join the more usual Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay in this fascinating blend. The wine is a sumptuous mix of floral, citrus and complex nutty flavours.
The Moutard family has been making wine since 1642. Since then they were always keen on exploring the potential of different terroirs, maintaining traditions as well as experimenting with different grapes varieties. Francois Moutard's 21 hectares vineyard are in Buxeuil on the Cote de Bar.

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe,
*** 99+ Points Robert Parker ***
The main reason the 2009 Lafite Rothschild did not receive a perfect score is because the wine has closed down slightly, but it is unquestionably another profound Lafite, their greatest wine since the amazing 2003. Among the most powerful Lafites ever made (it came in at 13.59% alcohol), the final blend was 82.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot. The selection was incredibly severe with only 45% of the crop being utilized. A tight, but potentially gorgeous nose of graphite, black currants, licorice and camphor is followed by a full-bodied wine revealing the classic elegance, purity and delineated style of Lafite.

10 Year Old White Port
A fairly rare style of port, the 10 years old white is characterised by skin contact and oxidative maturation. It is made in the same way as aged tawnies, with slow aging in pipes in the Messias lodges. The white grapes undergo a long period of skin maceration and are foot trodden. Following the addition of grape brandy, the White Port spends a year in large oak vats, followed by ageing in traditional oak pipes for a period of between 7 and 15 years.
