Pertuisane Vieilles Vignes 2005Buy it here!

What a wine! Beautiful black fruit flavours here with an odd but enticing port-like flavour too. Minerality like a white wine here but otherwise a red through and through! 10% for this week as well so don't miss out!

Good morning wine lovers! The sun is finally shining after yesterday's monsoon - hurrah! We've decided to go with something a little lighter today...


La Crema Pinot Noir 2012Buy it here!

This gorgeous wine from Willamette Valley in Oregon, U.S.A. is a fuller bodied Pinot Noir. Much deeper in flavour than our other Pinots, it still retains its fruity red berry character whilst being sumptuous in the mouth. Beautifully soft tannins make this a perfect wine to drink on its own but also pairs wonderfully well with food. Come in and try it - it's 10% off this week!

Inspired by this hideous weather, we've decided to focus on reds this week - delicious wines to curl up at home with! Today's wine is a massive favourite here is the shop...


Jean Leon Merlot 2006Buy it here!

Where can we start? Velvety smooth, juicy strawberry and cherry flavours, incredibly lush with a fabulous long finish. Fab with food or without this juice will keep you smiling even on the wettest of days! It's 10% off this week so come and try some!

As you all probably know, September is harvest time in the European world of wine and in Champagne they have had a cracking season. Between the end of August and the end of September is harvest time and throughout Champagne producers have been celebrating the fantastic weather over the summer. A lovely balance of rain and sun has created the perfect conditions to grow grapes in the way they should be grown and have ended with wonderful acidity.

The general French harvest has been good too. A dry and warm summer has ended up causing this vintage to be hailed as potentially one of the best vintages in a long time, possibly the best of the century. Of course they won't know anything until they taste the wines, but the key characteristics point to an absolutely outstanding vintage with yields slightly lower than last year but with truly amazing quality.


Here at Grand Cru Co, we've had an amazing response to our wine tasting evenings. All tickets are now completely sold out until November, so if you do want to take part you need to get in contact with us as soon as possible to make sure you get your place!
