Treat someone special to the understated brilliance of two critically adored classics of the fine wine world... sublime Barolo from Piedmont's rolling hills and perfectly poised Sancerre, the jewel of the Loire.
Les Marennes 2014 Sancerre
A top-quality Sancerre from the appellation's only co-operative cellar, this wine has been made for us by director-winemaker Fabrice Robineau. A special blend
with a complex character of blackcurrant leaf and gooseberries, it has a fine smoky intensity and minerality that comes from truly great terroir.
Waitrose Barolo, Terredavino 2011 Piedmont A delicious Barolo with plenty of characteristic tannin and intense rose and tea favours. Elegant rather than blockbuster in style, the wine will nonetheless beneft from decanting an hour or so before drinking to allow the favours to develop. A treat of a wine that goes well with richly sauced meat dishes.
