From the legendary Martinez Bujanda family and following in their great grandfather Joaquin’s footsteps, Carlos and Pillar Martinez Bujanda have continued on with this Rioja dynasty and their range of Rioja wines is very impressive indeed.

It is rare to find a strong Rioja that is simultaneously an excellent representation of its style, a smooth drink and a full-on value. 100% Tempranillo, the 2015 Bujanda Rioja Crianza fits the bill. Pronounced, warm spiced earth surrounds perfumed strawberry. More and more Rioja spice as it opens; there is a nice combination of fine, fleshy fruit aromas and traditional, savory flavors. Lush, classy and forward along with pronounced licorice-whip on the finish. Als0 90 points from Wine Spectator.

IT IS LAST CALL BEFORE THE PRICE GOES UP STARTING JAN. 1. Translation, this is the last time that you will ever see this price this low and with the threat of more tariffs, if you haven’t scored any of this gem or want some more, speak up now!

Known for the luxurious and over the top expensive Cristal, Champagne Roederer makes a wide range of cuvees in all price ranges and is one of the historic houses of the region with history goes back to 1765. It is a large landholder in the area, and is able to produce around 80% of its grape requirements. The current cuvee of Louis Roederer's multi-vintage, Brut Premier, is a perennial winner and, as usual, is on world-beating form! This is one of the great houses of Champagne, and we cannot think of any other Champagne house that is as consistent with their non-vintage Champagne as Roederer. Lovely aromas of apple, orange, toast, and stone on the nose. In the mouth, it has excellent apple fruit, with good concentration, well-framed acidity and a harmonious finish and silky bubbles from start to finish. An undoubtedly delicious Champagne that will put everyone in a good mood to bring in 2020.

We will be starting with these two plus one or two more all while changing course as things sell through or we get ready to uncork a new selection
