After the success of our themed cases for all three Grand Tours in 2021, The Cycling Podcast and Dvine Cellars of London are again getting together toast the 2021 season that was with six spectacular bottles from Italy, France and Spain. From Pinot Bianco grown on the slopes of the Dolomites to red Bordeaux - with a detour via the Basque Country and Europe’s most underrated and least pronounceable fizz - we invite you on a fourth Grand Tour of year, this one showcasing some viticultural highlights we missed the first time around.

 

Cantina Andriano, Pinot Bianco, Trentino Alto-Adige, Italy -

Pale yellow colour with green reflexes, on the nose apples and pears. Soft and full with a long finish, elegant body, balanced acidity. 

 

Bat Gara, Uno Txacoli, Basque Country, Spain -

This extraordinary Txakoli is a cut above. It's crisp, fresh, refreshing character is expected, but has an extra dimension from 5 months ageing on lees. Fresh, mineral aromas with a tiny hint of hazelnut with lemon.

 

Domaine Vendange, 'Madame de M' 2018, Altesse, Savoie, France -

An aromatic complexity with tinges of peach, lime and honeysuckle, followed up by a lemon zing and distinctive minerality. A real refresher!

 

Chateau La Bourguette 2013, Bordeaux, France -

Classic cabernet based red blend from the iconic Bourdeaux region in France. Deep ruby red, with blackcurrant, violet and chocolate on the nose. Concentrated black cherry, dark chocolate and tea leaves on palate, lead to a medium finish with nice acidity.

 

Bodegas Emilio Moro, ‘Emilio Moro’, DO Ribera del Duero, Castilla y León, Spain -

This powerful tempranillo has been tamed with some measured barrel aging that leaves you with notes of cedar and sandlewood. A powerful wine with mellow and refined tannins.

 

Seghesio, Nebbiolo, Langhe, Piedmont, Italy -

A complex mingling of balsam notes with rose and bright, ripe red cherry. Though it has a fraction of their Barolo's acid and tannic structure it's a winning partner with rich, flavorful dishes including mushrooms.
