Video Round-Up: Château Bauduc Blanc 2009 put to the test
Video One: Château Bauduc Bordeaux Blanc 2009
Back in May of last year, most of Gavin Quinney’s Sauvignon crop was wiped out by two freak hailstorms. At one stage we were very worried that there would be no ’09 vintage. In fact, there will be no ’09 vintage of the red partner, Clos des Quinze. In an attempt to salvage the white, most grapes have come from a neighbouring vineyard which Gavin managed to lease. So how does it stand up? Check out the video.

Video Two: Farnese Montepulciano d’Abruzzo 2008
From Italian Winery of the Year (IWSC) for three years running between ’05 and ’07, this Montepulciano does its talking in the glass. A previous vintage was described by Robert Parker as “wine to buy by the carload”.
Video Three: Ortonese Malvasia 2008
Ortonese is a wine of Farnese. Also sourced from the Abruzzo region, Malvasia is one of Italy’s most popular white wines. The ’08 is quite a ‘full’ wine, with vibrant tangy fruits and a lick of spice on the finish.
Video Four: Tabalí Reserva Especial Pinot Noir 2008
One of our most recent additions to the Curious range, this Pinot offers a very different style to that of Burgundy, but is nonetheless very refined whilst not holding back on the fruit (IWC Bronze Medal)
Video Five: Tabalí Reserva Chardonnay 2008
Our second new entrant from Tabalí is showing that Limarí Valley really has got what it takes to make outstanding Chardonnay. The secret is a beautiful balance of oak ageing and exceptional terroir (IWSC Bronze Medal)
