Premium Red Duo
Harvey Nichols recently launched our brand-new Premium Range, comprising small-batch wines from some of the finest producers in the world.
The limited-edition Premium Red Duo features the first two releases in the series; two big French reds of outstanding provenance.
The first is a Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2018 from Roger Sabon, an esteemed and “intellectual vigneron (according to Robert Parker) who is on top form. This juicy and fruit-forward Rhône red is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault grapes from 50-year-old vines, and it carries its considerable stature with elegant ease. Expect complex, concentrated and deeply charming notes of smoky brambles, black cherries, plum crumble, herbes de Provence, toasted oak, red wine gravy and creamy Flat White coffee, all finished off with a twist of pepper. A fine choice for Sunday roasts, tagines, cauliflower rubbed in smoked paprika and roasted whole, slow-cooked stews and Turkish grills.
The second wine is a Montagne Saint-Émilion. The eagle-eyed connoisseur will notice the five arrows on the capsule, letting you know that this exquisite Bordeaux was created by the Rothschilds, a family that gave the world the First Growths Château Lafite Rothschild and Château Mouton Rothschild. In 2003, they acquired and renovated an under-the-radar property located in Puisseguin, where they make this exceptional blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Matured in French oak for 12 months, it unfurls in the glass with a nose of dark chocolate shavings, red cherries, plum crumble and oak. The palate continues in a similar vein, dominated by rich, ripe and concentrated red and black fruits, but is also seasoned with sophisticated notes of mocha, vanilla, exotic spices, white pepper and sea salt. This is a wine that will continue to improve for a decade or more, so we recommend tucking it away in the cellar.
Only 1,200 bottles were made of each of these classic wines, making this a rare and unparalleled gift for any fine wine aficionado.
