Remember the first time you fell under the spell of wine? More likely than not, it was the 'nose' that drew you in; perhaps an evocative sniff, or a waft of something different yet familiar, or even the shock that a beverage could be so wonderfully scented. We return to those origins with this fortnight's bundles: aromatic whites and fragrant reds.

Our fragrant reds are beguiling examples which might bring back memories of that first sniff; from a floral, mineral cru Beaujolais to a Loire blend, two hugely different Grenaches from France and the US, and two complex blends from California.

 

There are six bottles in the bundle. It is made up of:

  • 1 x 2017 Edmunds St. John «El Jaleo»
  • 1 x 2018 Birichino Scylla
  • 1 x 2017 Domaine des Terres Dorées Côte de Brouilly
  • 1 x 2016 Clos de l'Èlu Vin de Pays Rouge «Indigène»
  • 1 x 2016 Dashe Cellars Grenache «Les Enfants Terribles»
  • 1 x 2017 Alain Chabanon «Campredon»
