Whilst this wine may not be available from the Fine Wine Centre please check with your local store for availability. Les Tourelles de Longueville is the second wine of Ch√Ęteau Pichon-Baron.

A deep, purple colour with an enticing nose of strawberry, blackcurrant and fresh roses. Silky tannins give a more 'ready-to-drink' style, packed with toasty vanilla notes and an unmistakable elegance. Well-balanced with a crisp structure this wine will drink well over the next 5-8 years. Drink with roast lamb or game pie.

Barbaresco 2007, De Forville

Barbaresco 2007, De Forville
£12.99

Nebbiolo takes it name from 'nebbia', the fog cloaking the hills of Piedmont around harvest time. The village of Barbaresco lies only a little to the north-east of Barolo in Piedmont and produces wines of a similar style and quality. A big, elegant wine of pale colour. Dark cherries and leather with earthy hints, and a rose perfume, a charming, well integrated wine with a long finish. Muscular tannins give the wine a solid backbone. Try this with a fillet steak with mushrooms. The wine will nicely echo the earthy notes of the mushrooms.
