Essential 12 - NYE Celebration Set

£213.30 £166.00 Inc. Vat



Need a decent amount of New Year’s wine but want to keep things reasonable? This fantastic Essential 12 does the business. Two types of fizz that really sparkle. A quartet of crowd (and mouth!) pleasing whites everyone will find a favourite in. And four super smooth and easy-drinking reds in a range of styles.




 



  • Domaine Fichet Bourgogne Rouge

    “Don't be put off by the somewhat 'generic' Bourgogne Rouge name. Rich with red cherries, red plums and red berries, this is good at room temperature, but pop it in the fridge for a bit and you'll never look back. The ultimate cool-drinking summer red? Mais oui!”


  • André Levasseur Rue Du Sorbier Brut Nature × 2


  • 47 AD Prosecco Frizzante DOC × 2


  • Quinta da Pedra Alta Pedra a Pedra Branco

    “Citric, floral, refreshing, lovely. You simply cannot go wrong with this wine. An every-day-drinker that works with or without food and won't disappoint for a special occasion. Your new favourite white wine.”


  • Villa Fresco Pinot Grigio

    “Pinot grigio! Slightly worn-out words from the pub bar but this example doesn't belong there. This version is still easy drinking but all grown up from that mouthwash of yesteryear. Expect the smells of fleshy melon, white flowers, green herbs and smoke. Acidity is on the refreshing and bright side. Ding-a-ling!”


  • Manyol Joven × 2

    “Joven means young in Spanish, and that's not normally a word you want to associate with the red wine you're buying, but forget about any misconceptions you may have, this is a Summery red wine at its finest, still with great fruit and some complexity, you will be pleasing ALL the crowds.”


  • Domaine François Cartier Touraine Sauvignon Blanc

    “Classic Savvy B from the Loire. Easy-drinking, crowd-pleasing, well-made wine for all occasions. It's a might-as-well-grab-a-case-and-stick-it-in-the-garage-so-we-always-have-a-decent-white-wine-when-we-need-it wine. Lovely.”


  • deAlto Gatito Loco Blanco

    “Certainly more wildcat than a lap mog. This punches well above its price bracket. Smokey cashew nuts, bananas and grown-up grapefruit tickles. Meow indeed!”


  • Villa Fresco Sangiovese

    “Sangiovese is one of our favourite grapes, not least due to its versatility. Best known when delivered from the vineyards and wineries of Chianti, this wine is very different. Velvety smooth, super fruity, very well controlled tannin, great use of oak barrels to bring out a touch of spice and smoke and all kept fresh by the acidity. Marvellous.”
