3 bottles of Château George 7 2018 and 3 bottles of Prince 2018. Both are 100% Merlot made from 35-year old vines in 3 parcels directly in front of and to the side of the house and winery.
Château George 7 2018
This wine has fresh, ripe red fruit flavours - ripe cherry, ripe strawberry and plum as well as some black fruits such as blueberry and blackberry. This fruitiness is complemented by the oak flavours of cedar wood and hints of tobacco and spice.
This wine is to drink from young ie late 2020 and for up to 15 years but the absolute best drinking window is likely to be 2022 to 2028.
When you taste Prince, you know what the wine-buffy term 'fruit-forward' really means - the fruit is right there, crunchy and fresh: strawberries, cherries, plums... and then a touch of oak to balance the fruit with good structure and to round the tannins. Easy-drinking perfectly describes it because it can be drunk young (from 2020), goes with all kinds of lunch and dinner dishes that is calling out for a fruity merlot. It will drink well for about 10 years.
Mixed Case 2018 Ch George 7 X 3 & Prince X 3
Because I love our wines with food, and because there is such a range of great food and wine pairing to be done with oaked and lesser oaked wines, such as Prince and Ch George 7, then I have asked chef Stéphanie to come up with meat, vegetarian and vegan recipes that pair beautifully with our wines whatever season we are in.
Also, I love cooking so have come up with my less-cheffy ideas - how about a rich mushroom risotto, or chicken in a red wine sauce served with root veg mash.....
