A fond farewell ..... Date published: 05/09/14

After 12 years at the helm of Majestic Bromley, I'm finally off to pastures new  ( well Majestic Greenwich to be exact).

So for all those who have been charmed (and slightly alarmed ) by my early morning cheeriness, I bid you a fond farewell. It's been an eventful 12 years, with floods, wonky carparks, falling signs and many different teams of supporting Assistant Managers and Trainee Managers - but I have loved every minute of it. 

Thank you all for putting up with my passion for big, oaky  Chardonnays and fizz from just about anywhere, my terrible jokes ( especially during Wine Courses and Tasting Evenings), my obsession with holidays, and my imaginative food and wine pairings. It has been a real honour to meet you all, and to get to know you and your wine likes and dislikes, and don't worry, your frequency of visits will remain a secret, just between us !

I'm sure that you will look after my replacement, as you have looked after me, and that the Bromley team will serve you well, as always.

I will be popping in for the odd day or two over the next couple of weeks, so you won't get rid of me that easily, so hopefully I'll see many of you before I hang up my Majestic Bromley hat completely.

Thanks very much.

It's been an absolute pleasure to meet you all.

All the best,

Amanda

Brilliant Ale from Shepherd NeameDate published: 11/08/14

Shepherd Neame Classic Collection Brilliant Ale

There is a legend at Shepherd Neame that Brilliant Ale was inspired by the vision of the bright early morning sun sending its golden shafts of light through the brewhouse window and onto the oak mash tun, inspiring the brewing team to brew a beer that echoed these hues.

Historically this recipe was formulated with 100% pale malt and was bittered by the brewery’s signature East Kent Goldings hops, resulting in a golden, brilliantly bright, hoppy ale which has risen Phoenix-like from the ashes of time for the modern drinker to enjoy.

According to brewery records, Brilliant Ale was first brewed sometime between 1825 and 1855, making it oldest Classic Collection beer to date. Although it has been rejuvenated by using the modern hop variety Cascade, it is staying true to the spirit of this great pale ale, which was hugely popular in its day.

In keeping with its historic credentials, Brilliant Ale is presented in a traditional amber glass bottle embellished with the brewery’s 19th century logo on the label, neck and crown.

8 x 500 ml  £ 16.40 (if you buy any 2 cases of Ale - single case price £18.40)


Summer Selection - staff picks ...Date published: 09/08/14

Our Summer Selection deals have changed for August, but there are some fabulous wines all at  33.3% off, to get your lips around.

One of Martin's favourite whites is the Medalla Real Chardonnay from Santa Rita in Chile. Rich, buttery and full of fruit, this is a great white to go with just about anything. £11.99 down to £7.99 on 2+ bottles in the Summer Selection.

Jon adores the Waimea Pinot Gris from New Zealand - it's about as far removed from Italian Pinot Grigio as you can get, but with a hint of spiced fruit on the palate and the nose, is a perfect partner for spicier dishes such as Pad Thai, or Jerk Chicken. £14.99 down to £9.99 on 2+ bottles.

If you love Rose wines, but want one with a little more body than a Provence, then I think you should definitely try the Vinalba Rose from one of our favourite producers in Argentina. Made from Grenache and Syrah this is a Rose for those who mainly drink red - plenty of body, rich berry fruits and a refreshing finish. £11.99 down to £7.99 on 2+ bottles.

There are plenty of other great wines in the Summer Selection from Chilean Sauvignon's at £5.99  to Veuve Clicquot Rose Champagne NV at £39.98 - so pop in and pick up some new wines to enjoy this Summer.

See you at the Tasting Counter.

Matsu 'El Viejo'

£25 Buy 2 Selected Fine Wines & save £10 = £20

'The Old One' of the Matsu range is made from the fruit of selected, extremely low yielding Tinta de Toro vines. We think this is a triumph if innovative Spanish wine production.

Fine Wine of the Week ......Date published: 01/08/14

The McRae Wood Shiraz 

2010, Jim Barry Wines, Clare Valley 


The wine's name and label pay homage to Duncan McRae Wood, a sheep farmer from whom Jim Barry purchased the land in 1964 and planted it with his first Shiraz. This is classic South Australian stuff, showing massive ripeness, vanilla and spices.

A big, full-bodied Shiraz, displaying ripe black fruit aromas, floral notes, and black pepper on the nose. The palate is rich and concentrated, with layers of plums, liquorice, black cherry, blackberry and some toasty oak. Best decanted to allow the flavours to open.

This wine is made using the ‘Jim Barry’ method, meaning that it can be enjoyed upon release but would equally benefit from a rest in the cellar to allow the wine to show some mature characteristics that come with age.

If you have a special occasion coming or just want to cheer yourself up with a nice glass of wine, then try this. It's an iconic multi-award winning wine which will never fail to put a smile on your face! Simply put, it's excellent.

Summer Cup - great for hot Summer AfternoonDate published: 12/07/14

Sipsmith Summer Cup

What could be more delightful than Pimm's on a hot English summer afternoon? Well, since you asked, Sipsmith's Summer Cup, that's what.

Based on Sipsmith's award winning London Dry Gin, which is distilled in copper still, the first such still in London since 1820. Then, inspired by the quinetessentially English Cups of the 1800s, it is blended with a host of carefully selected fabulous summery fruits and flavours including infusions of Earl Grey Tea, Lemon Verbena and Cucumber. The natural cloudiness comes from the real ingredients that are infused to give the Summer Cup its wonderful character and depth of flavours. Aromatic yet surprisingly dry, it's crying out for tonic water or lemonade and fruit.

Special Offer £15


Craft BeerDate published: 11/07/14

Simply put, craft beer is beer not brewed by one of the big "mega-brewery" corporations. More often than not, when the phrase craft beer is used, this is what it means. However The Brewer's Association in Colorado defines craft beer as beer made by a brewer that is small, independent, and traditional. 

Here at Majestic Wines Bromley, we have put together a very interesting selection of craft beers from all over the world. Pop in, I'm sure there is something for everyone.

Brooklyn Lager £9.99 (if you buy any 2 selected six-packs)

Amber-gold lager with a firm malt centre, refreshing bitterness and floral hop aroma. This American original uses the British technique of dry-hopping in a Viennese-style beer, resulting in a smooth lager that's versatile with food.

Anchor Steam £9.99 (if you buy any 2 selected six-packs)

A deep amber colour with a thick, creamy head and rich, distinctive flavour.

Brooklyn Summer Ale £9.99 (if you buy any 2 selected six-packs)

A modern rendition of the "Light Dinner Ales" brewed in England throughout the 1800's right up until the 1940's: refreshing and flavourful without being too heavy. Brooklyn Summer Ale is brewed from premium English barley malt, which gives this light-bodied golden beer a fresh bready flavour. German and American hops lend a light crisp bitterness and a citrus/floral aroma, resulting in a beer with a very sunny disposition.

Einstök White Ale £9.99 (if you buy any 2 selected six-packs)

A craft beer from the north of Iceland modelled on the traditional Belgian wheatbeer. Made with pure spring water and infused with coriander and orange peel, it's full textured yet light on the palate, with a refreshing citrus zing.

Einstök Pale Ale £11.99 (if you buy any 2 selected six-packs)

American and Bavarian craft come together with the finest Icelandic water to create the Viking version of the Pale Ale, where robust hoppiness meets smooth malty undertones.

Camden Hells Lager £10.99 (if you buy any 2 selected six-packs)

Inspired by Germany, delivered for London. A classic lager that’s exactly what it should be: easy-drinking, crisp and dry with beautiful bubbles. Clean and refreshing with a dry hop finish. You can taste the great depth of flavour which comes from the long, slow maturation in tank. This is how a great lager should taste.

Freedom Pilsner £8.99 (if you buy any 2 selected six-packs)

Freedom Pilsner is made with a blend of liberty and spicy Saaz hops and soft sweet malts, which produces a full bodied bitterness with a citrus hop aroma and lavishly satisfying after-taste.

Goose Island IPA £9.99 (if you buy any 2 selected six-packs)

From Chicago's craft brewery Goose Island, comes this India Pale Ale. It recalls a time when ales shipped from England to India were highly hopped to preserve their distinct taste during the long journey. The result is a hop lovers dream with a fruity aroma, off set by a dry malt middle and long hop finish.

Punk IPA, BrewDog £9.99 (if you buy any 2 selected six-packs)

Light golden in colour with tropical fruits and light caramel on the nose.

Wine of the Week

The King's Favour Sauvignon Blanc 2012 Marlborough

£14.99 Buy 2 Save 33% = £9.99

An amazing wine from the maker of The Ned. Full of fresh gooseberry fruit, with a clean minerality on the finish. Although unmistakeably from Marlborough, there is more of a nod to the classic wines from the Loire. Drink on its own as a delicious aperitif, or partner with more spicy dishes from South East Asia – such as Pad Thai, or Vietnamese Spring Rolls.

Enjoy !!

Wine of the Week

Fremondo Greco 2013 Sannio, Italy

£9.99 Buy 2 Save 25% = £7.49

Greco is an ancient grape variety believed to be Greek in origin ( hence the name). Made from a co-operative from the south of Italy close to Naples.

La Difese 2011, Tenuta San Guido. IGT Toscana £21 Buy 2 bottles save £10= £16

Made from 70% Cabernet and 30% Sangiovese and aged for 12 months in both American and French Oak, there is plenty of depth and finesse on show here. This is one of my absolute favourite wines at the moment, mainly because it is so full of rich, cherry fruit and a lingering finish that belies the price tag. Just delicious !!

Summer Selection - staff picks ...Date published: 04/06/14

We love it when a new promotion starts - the problem is always what to buy first ?

So if you're dazzled by the array of wines in Junes' Summer Selection, we thought we'd lend a helping hand, and suggest our favourite wines for the heady heatwave of June (!).

It's New Zealand Tasting week this Friday - so why not embrace your inner-Kiwi:

Marisco Vineyards; The Kings Favour Sauvignon - down to £9.99 on 2+

If you love The Ned, then this is a sure fire hit -also made by Brent Marris, this is a classy affair, with plenty of gooseberry action, but also a flintier finish that hints at a cleaner palate.

Mud House Sauvignon : down to £6.66 on 2+

We all love a bargain,  but when your bargain wine has also just been awarded a Gold Medal at the IWC, then this is a no-brainer. Stock-up while you can, and this will see you through any occasion this Summer.

Marisco Vineyards: The Kings Thorn Pinot Gris - down to £9.99 on 2+

This gorgeous wine has it's roots planted in the Alsace style of Pinot, offering an elegant and aromatic nose, but with a depth of flavour that belies its' price. Great with anything spicy..

Anyone for Tapas?

We're also loving that Majestic favourite, Marques de Riscal Reserva - down to £9.99 on 2+

This is a classic Rioja, that has long graced Majestic staff wineracks up and down the country, and at this price it won't stick around for long. The perfect partner for any lamb dishes you've got planned, but also great with BBQ roasted peppers and a nibble of Manchego.

Mid-week Fruit.

If you fancy a glass of something fruity mid-week, then you can't miss out on Santa Rita 120 Viognier - down to £5.99 on 2+

This is a great food wine, that is equally at home with creamy pasta dishes, or more Asian focussed cuisine, there's plenty of peach and nectarine flavours on the nose, but the finish is beautifully balanced with good acidity.


So here's just a few of our current crop of favourites, but there's plenty more in-store. Just look out for our Staff Recommendation cards, and you'll soon know what's coming home with us this week - we'll suffer the homework, just for you.

Enjoy !!

Jon's first few weeks at Majestic WineDate published: 04/06/14

My first few weeks as a trainee manager have flown past in a blur, and I've learned a great deal already, though it has made me realise how much there is still to learn! 

Using the tasting counter, helping out on tasting evenings and my staff discount has given me the opportunity to broaden my taste and to try all sorts of new exciting wines, including a few fine wines. My favourites so far have been the Pennautier Viognier, the Chateau de Saint Gemme, and the Elysium Black Muscat.

I've also learned a lot about how the running of the shop, how to keep the shop well stocked and tidy, and, most importantly how to keep customers happy. I've really enjoyed using the wine knowledge I've gained to answer customer's questions and help them find the wines most suited to them.

Bromleys' Pick of The Week... rose, but not as we know itDate published: 30/05/14

Domaine Ott Chateau Romassan Rosé

Chateau de Tracy  2012  Pouilly-Fume 

£24 Buy 2 selected Fine Wines & Spirits save £10 = £19

 

A classic Pouilly-Fume, this is a MUST BUY from anyone who loves Loire Sauvignon Blanc.

Fresh aromatics and subtle, gooseberry flavours abound with traditional flinty characteristics. This is a wine of pure finesse that is a delight to drink now, but could age for a couple more years.

If you think that Sauvignon Blanc is just about the wines from Marlborough, then this will give you real food for thought.

Pair with pan-fried sea bass for a classy match.

With the mercury hitting the heady heights of twenty degrees this weekend, it's a perfect excuse to recommend a couple of great wines to enjoy in this weather!


Mud House Sauvignon Blanc 2013 Marlborough - £6.66 (if you buy any 2 bottles from our Summer Selection - single bottle price £9.99)

Mud House Wines was started in 1996, and is a producer focused on sustainable viticulture. Just over half the fruit for this wine is sourced from their own Woolshed vineyard in the Upper Wairau Valley, with the remainder sourced from partner growers.

Taste

Pale straw yellow, with heady aromas of fresh grapefruit, guava and hints of nettles. Crisp, concentrated and vibrant on the palate, combining citrus and tropical fruit with green vegetal undertones.


Etoile de Mer Rosé 2013 Lubéron - £8.99 (if you buy 2 bottles - single bottle price £11.99)

Luberon is a mountainous area in the northern part of Provence, between the Mediterranean and the southern Rhône, whose high altitudes create a milder climate. The location is evident in this wine's style, which has obvious influences from both its neighbours. A Provence rosé with a little extra fruit density. The nose is full of pronounced aromas of ripe strawberry with subtle herbal hints, and the palate is lush and round, with a clean, dry finish.

Viñalba Fifty 50, 2012 Uco Valley - £7.99 (if you buy any 2 bottles from our Summer Selection - single bottle price £11.99)

Bordeaux winemaker Hervé Fabre made his name from Malbec, having been the first to make a single-varietal Malbec in Argentina. This wine is a 50/50 blend of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon, Argentina's 'other' great Bordeaux-sourced grape. Typically intense and vibrant, full of inky violet colour, with a juicy damson and blackcurrant backbone characterising both nose and palate. Toasty oak influence adds a touch of complexity.

Codorníu Rosado NV - £6.66 (if you buy any 2 bottles from our Summer Selection - single bottle price £9.99)

Codorníu are one of the oldest wine producers in Spain and also one of the pioneers of Cava, making their first bottle of sparkling in 1872, and soon afterward deciding to concentrate solely on Cava. Monastrell is the red grape which adds colour to this rosé. Light and pure, with citrus fruit and hints of strawberry and raspberry fruit, this wine is light and refreshing on the palate with a clean and refreshing finish.

The Colchagua Valley, along with the Maipo Valley to the north is one of Chile's best known wine regions. The vineyards stretch from the Pacific Ocean up to the Andes and produce some incredibly complex wines.

April's Pick 'n' Mix Wine of the Day .... M de Minuty, Provence RoseDate published: 10/04/14

Today we've gone for:

M de Minuty, 2013, Cotes de Provence   £14.99 buy 2 save 33.3% = £9.99

A classic Provence rose, in a classic Provence style bottle, it's just made to fit into your hand, and be poured.

It has a very delicate pink hue, but made from the spicier grapes of Grenache, Cinsault and Tibouren, it delivers a proper grown-up style of wine. Fresh soft fruit aromas and a clean and fresh palate, this is a superb Rose, that puts most others to shame. It is the epitome of summer in a bottle.

Elegant and incredibly more-ish, try it with freshly cooked prawns, pan-fried squid or a zesty mango and chilli salad.

The only drawback is that it doesn't tend to fit back in the fridge, due to the tall bottle neck; but then, with a wine this good the chances of that happening are pretty rare anyway. So open the bottle and watch the clouds roll away, as you've got Summer in your glass..

Salad ideas...Date published: 30/03/14

If you're having a BBQ this weekend, or just want another idea for a refreshing salad, then try this one:

Delicious, easy, looks gorgeous and works incredibly well with spicy food - we had it last night with homemade chilli -heavy lamb kebabs. (And if you're having lunch indoors, then the mint even fragrances the house..)

Exciting Wines from Toro, SpainDate published: 01/03/14

Toro is an exciting wine region nestled in the heart of Castilla y Leon, in the province of Zamora, west of its well know neighbour Ribera del Duero. The region produces red wine across the spectrum from Joven to Gran Reserva, but all grades must be made from at least 75% Tinta de Toro (the local name for a clone of the Tempranillo red grape). The best reds tend to contain 100% Tinta de Toro and are robust, concentrated and well-structured. 

Bodega Matsu


If you like wines from Rioja, you'll love the Matsu range as the main grape variety offered in both is Tempranillo.  In Japanese, Matsu means 'to wait'. The producers have adopted this name to reflect their focus on quality - waiting for the right conditions for the grapes to harvest and using bio-dynamic production techniques to ensure minimum intervention and avoid overloading vines with pesticides.  The winery is fully organic. 

Bodega Matsu offers three cracking wines.  Each wine's distinctive label depicts a man of a different age;  this reflects the age of the vines and how long the wine has been aged in oak barrels.


Matsu El Picaro, Toro  - £7.99 (If you buy 2+ bottles)

'El Picaro' translates as 'The Rogue' or 'Rascal'.  This wine portrays the youngest man of the bunch and perhaps the most mischievous! Aromas of ripe blackberries and raspberries with subtle hints of fresh cocoa. The palate is bold yet supple, with ripe tannins and a mineral grip.  The appeal of this wine is definitely it's youthful, vibrant fresh fruit style with only 3 months ageing in oak barrels.


Matsu  El Recio Toro - £12.99 (If you buy 2+ bottles)

'El Recio' translates as 'The Tough Guy'. This wine portrays the middle-aged man because of its more serious and mature style. Intense and opaque, this wine is a mass of deep black fruit, chocolate, roasted coffee bean and vanilla pod aromas. Voluptuous and weighty with a firm structure, held together by silky tannins. The appeal of this wine is definitely its complexity, with 14 months ageing in oak barrels offering layers of fruit and integrated oak on the palate. A great match to steak!


Matsu El Viejo, Toro - £20.00 (If you buy any 2 Selected Fine Wines)

'The Old One' of the Matsu range is made from the fruit of selected Tinta de Toro vines, averaging 110 years of age.  The wine is immensely powerful and complex, offering cigar box, lavender and graphite nuances against a backdrop of dense cherry and bramble fruit.  The appeal of this wine is its powerful style with ample yet fine grained tannins. A fine match for many hearty dishes; try with roasted saddle of Venison!

Their estate here comprises 241 hectares of vines, at 630m above sea level, surrounded on almost all sides by the Andes. An attractively deep purple wine, with an up-front and straightforward wild berry character, with hints of baking spices. Intense and generous on the palate, with plush tannins and good ripeness.


Portillo Malbec 2013 Bodegas Salentein, Mendoza - £6.66 (single bottle price £9.99)

Bodegas Salentein has one of the largest cool-climate estates in Argentina, with 2000ha of vines, at up to 1700m above sea level. Their Malbec is grown at around 1050m.

The Malbec Reserva from the Vinalba estate has previously won a Decanter award for its quality. Sourced from vineyards at the foot of the Andes, grown at different altitudes to achieve the perfect balance between tannin and acidity. This wine literally wraps itself around every corner of your mouth with its ripe dark plum fruits, sweet tannins and dark chocolate and mocha. Flavours linger for a long time.


Malbec Luigi Bosca 2011 Vistalba - £10.65 (single bottle price £15.99)

Bodega Luigi Bosca was started in 1901, when the original wave of Italian winemakers had settled in Argentina, and is now in its fourth generation of family ownership. Vistalba is an important sub-region of Lujan de Cuyo, located at 990m above sea level. Deeply fruity, with a dark and voluptuous feel, this is a fine example of Argentina's trademark style. Tightly structured, it brings together subtle vanilla hints, firm tannins and well-judged acidity.

Clarets to cheer about.Date published: 23/02/14

It's not all about the Pick'n'Mix wines this season, there are plenty of other great deals and great wines within our range too.

This week we thought we'd showcase some of our Picks for Bordeaux - after all, the weather tends to lend itself to more robust dishes at this time of year, and therefore a robust and full-bodied Red can really hit the spot.

If you like your Bordeaux wines on the chunkier side, then we think you'd really enjoy:

Ch. de Sainte Gemme 2008, Haut-Medoc

£14.99 Buy 2 save £10 = £9.99

From an estate near to St-Julien, this is a perfect match to Roast Beef and all the trimmings. Rich with plummy fruit, and hints of cedar and black pepper, it has great quality that belies the humble price. You could lay this down for a year or three, if you're of the patient persuasion too.

Chateau Le Vivier 2008, Medoc

£11.99 Buy 2 save £8 = £7.99

This is a cracking wine at a great price. Blended from equal parts of Cabernet and Merlot, this is full of blackberry and plum flavours, with a dash of liquorice on the finish. If you are a fan of the slow-cooking revolution, then this is the one for you. Slow-cooked Ox Cheeks, with loads of root vegetables, would perfectly compliment this wine.

If you prefer your Bordeaux wines a little softer then these may tickle your fancy:

Chateau La Vielle Croix 2009, Fronsac

£19.99 Buy 2 selected Fine Wines save £10 = £14.99

Fronsac is not as trendy as it once was, and for this reason you can get great value wines, that from any other region in Bordeaux would sell for double the price. Balanced tannins, plenty of up-front fruit, and a soft berry finish that lingers for an age. You could hide this is your cellar for a few years, or equally enjoy it right now. A great match with a top notch cassoulet.

Chateau Moulin Eyquem 2002, Cotes de Bourg

£9.99 Buy 2 save £5 = £7.49

Fully mature, and ready to go, this is a great value wine full of fruit and with a finish of vanilla, soft raspberries, plums and white pepper. It is quite soft and approachable for a Bordeaux, and as such would be fantastic with roast Lamb, or an earthy mushroom tartlet.


Bordeaux reds this Winter, proof that great wine doesn't always have the break the bank.

Enjoy !!

Langhe Nebbiolo 2012, De Forville

With a striking ruby colour, this wine is bursting with ripe fruit flavours and subtle spice. The flavours and aromas of red berries, and deep cherries are rich and very inviting, with a hint of warming pepper on the finish.

New Member of our Ale FamilyDate published: 14/02/14

Shepherd Neame Classic Collection Brilliant Ale

There is a legend at Shepherd Neame that Brilliant Ale was inspired by the vision of the bright early morning sun sending its golden shafts of light through the brewhouse window and onto the oak mash tun, inspiring the brewing team to brew a beer that echoed these hues.

Historically this recipe was formulated with 100% pale malt and was bittered by the brewery’s signature East Kent Goldings hops, resulting in a golden, brilliantly bright, hoppy ale which has risen Phoenix-like from the ashes of time for the modern drinker to enjoy.

According to brewery records, Brilliant Ale was first brewed sometime between 1825 and 1855, making it oldest Classic Collection beer to date. Although it has been rejuvenated by using the modern hop variety Cascade, it is staying true to the spirit of this great pale ale, which was hugely popular in its day.

In keeping with its historic credentials, Brilliant Ale is presented in a traditional amber glass bottle embellished with the brewery’s 19th century logo on the label, neck and crown.

8 x 500 ml  £ 16.80 (if you buy any 2 cases of Ale - single case price £18.80)

New Member of our Lager FamilyDate published: 14/02/14

Whitstable Bay Blonde Premium Lager

Whitstable Bay Blonde Lager - a new member of the Whitstable Bay family - is a Vienna Lager style beer brewed by Shepherd Neame. This refreshing contemporary lager is distinguished by it's unique hop character. Gaining its name from the golden hue of the beer, it offers an enhanced drinking experience through the floral aroma, paired with buttery biscuit base notes, while avoiding the bitter aftertaste common with hoppy beers.

Six Great Ideas for you Valentine's DayDate published: 13/02/14

Celebrate Cupid's holiday with these superb Valentine's Day wines:


Cloudy Bay Pelorus Rosé NV New Zealand

£17.98 (if you buy 2+ bottles, single bottle price £26.99)

An excellent rosé from New Zealand's masters of top quality sparkling wine. Vinified in the traditional method, from 80% Pinot Noir, selected from a number of parcels in the Wairau Valley, blended to create a defined yet delicate style. Fine bubbles and a pale pink colour. The aromas are of strawberry and cranberry, with subtle pot pourri and flint. The palate is explosive and abundant, with lashings of cherry fruit and sweet spice.


Nicolas Feuillatte Rosé NV

£19.99 (if you buy 2+ bottles, single bottle price £30)

A delicate salmon pink rosé, made in Feuillatte's soft, welcoming style. The mousse is fine and the nose is one of intense blueberry and raspberry notes. Perfect with turkey.


Perrier-Jouët Blason Rosé NV

£29.98 (if you buy 2+ bottles, single bottle price £45)

An intense, luminous colour of salmon pink, with coppery highlights. Elegant aromas of raspberries, wild strawberries and rose petals are in abundance. This superb rosé can be enjoyed with fresh fruit desserts or on its own as an apéritif.


Laurent-Perrier Rosé NV

£49.97 (if you buy 2+ bottles, single bottle price £75)

Unusually made by the saignée method, with plenty of stylish strawberry fruit, full of vivacity and easy-drinking charm. A wonderfully refreshing apéritif, it also works well with a variety of dishes.


Veuve Clicquot Rosé NV

£50 (if you buy 2+ bottles, single bottle price £60)

A relatively recent addition to the Veuve Clicquot stable, this medium bodied rosé is reminiscent of the power and finesse of the non-vintage label, with a soft red-fruit core. Match with smoked salmon or strawberries and cream for optimum enjoyment.


and finally ....

Dom Pérignon Champagne 2004

£126 (if you buy 6+ bottles of Selected prestige cuvee Champagnes, single bottle price £140)

The bouquet spirals through sweet, bright floral notes and the lively minerality so typical of Dom Pérignon, then notes of candied fruit, plants, the incredible freshness of camphor leaf and finally the dark hints of spices and liquorice root. The wine is currently still physical. It is compelling, tactile and vibrant rather than aromatic. The rhythm and tempo are more dominant than the melody. At first mild and delicate, then strongly, confidently mineral, persistent, precise, with a refined bitterness, and an iodine, saline tang. A classic accompaniment to any stylish celebration.

Brancott Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2013 Marlborough

£6.66 (single bottle price £9.99)

Free-run and gently pressed juice is used to minimise the presence of bitter tannins, and 2-3 months' lees ageing adds to the texture. Aromas of green peppers, asparagus and gooseberry fill the nose, while the palate displays a riper character, with underlying pineapple and passionfruit notes providing a layered feel.


Ondine Sauvignon Blanc 2013 Darling, Western Cape

£5.99 (single bottle price £8.99)

The Western Cape's sub-region of Darling is characterised by ancient granite soils, coupled with a maritime climate, with vineyards located as little as 5km from the coast.

The palate is a delicate mix of citrus fruit and mineral texture.

Luis Felipe Edwards Selección Especial Malbec 2012 Colchagua Valley

£5.99 (single bottle price £8.99)

Juicy and smooth, the palate is satisfyingly weighty and long.

Montes Reserva Malbec 2012 Colchagua Valley

Round tannins and well-balanced acidity and fruit sweetness.

£6.66 (single bottle price £9.99)

From a single vineyard plot located 200km from Malbec's birthplace in Cahors, this modern Malbec echoes both the Old World rusticity of Cahors, and the inky fruitiness found in the Malbecs of Argentina and the rest of the New World. This Malbec keeps its bright, ripe plum and blackberry fruit at the centre of the frame, with the edges softened by restrained use of new oak, and subtle herbaceous notes from the blend's 10% Cab Franc.

Viña Mayu Malbec 2012 Elqui Valley

£9.33 (single bottle price £13.99)

Underdogs to neighbouring Argentina, Chile's wineries are still weighing into South America's battle of the Malbecs, with increasingly impressive results.

Canned Craft BeersDate published: 31/01/14

With the expansion of our craft beer range last year we've welcomed a couple of new beers, both packaged in cans. Both are priced at £9.99 when you buy two any 6 packs as part of our craft beer promotion (otherwise £12.99)

We all feel it's a shame that in recent years beer package in cans has had a poor reputation as only being the cheapest of the cheap as cans protect the beer from light better, keeping it fresher for longer and also reduce shipping costs - meaning more of the money you spend on your beer actually goes towards the beer!

BrewDog Punk IPA, Scotland, 5.6% ABV

Since its genesis in Aberdeen in 2006, BrewDog has quickly carved out a niche for itself as the UK's most daring and roguish craft beer producer, producing beers in many distinct and oft forgotten styles.

Punk IPA is their best known and most popular beer – a take on the classic style of India Pale Ale. In their own words: “A beer that spent its formative years Blitzkrieg bopping around India and the sub continent. Classic Empire with an anarchic twist”. 

Light golden in colour with tropical fruit, caramel and notes of blossom on the nose. The palate is assertive and rich with biscuity malt and tons of ripe tropical fruit. The fruit is balanced by an aggressively dry, bitter finish which lingers on the palate.
This cracking beer is perfect with a burger.

Underdog Atlantic Lager, USA, 4.7% ABV

"Don't be an Underdog in this crazy game called life". Flying Dog was originally established in Denver however as their popularity (and of the American craft scene in general) grew, they were forced to relocate to their current site in Baltimore, Maryland. Underdog is a great introduction to Flying Dog, representing an accessible style (especially when compared to others in their portfolio which can be found at various bars around Sheffield).

UnderDog is a crisp, hop driven lager with flavours of citrus, a delicious hoppy bitterness and a long, lingering taste on the palate.
Ideal served in a chilled glass with friends.

New Malbec from Mendoza in stock...Date published: 30/01/14

We're all huge fans of Luigi Bosca's 'Testimonio' blend (easily one of the best reds we do under £10), so this looks like it could be a winner.

Bodega Luigi Bosca was started in 1901, when the original wave of Italian winemakers had settled in Argentina, and is now in its fourth generation of family ownership. Vistalba is an important sub-region of Lujan de Cuyo, located at 990m above sea level.

Deeply fruity, with a dark and voluptuous feel, this is a fine example of Argentina's trademark style. Tightly structured, it brings together subtle vanilla hints, firm tannins and well-judged acidity.

Try this with seared venison loin.

Currently priced at £12.99 a bottle, when you buy 2+ bottles (single bottle price £15.99)

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc Explorer CaseDate published: 10/01/14

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc Explorer Case

Sauvignon Blanc is cultivated all around the world but New Zealand above all other regions has had a love affair with this grape in recent years. In turn we have fallen for New Zealand Sauvignon, and this case showcases the characteristics we have grown to love, crisp acidity, fresh fruit flavours, and excellent value!

2 bottles of Matua Sauvignon Blanc 2013 Marlborough

Matua is a Maori word which translates as 'head of the family', and is somewhat appropriate for this winery, which was part of New Zealand's first wave of modern winemakers who began making great Sauvignon Blanc in the mid-1970's. A great all-round Kiwi Sauvignon, combining tangy grapefruit and gooseberry flavours with hints of passion fruit and capsicum, all delivered with an explosion of refreshing acidity.

2 bottles of Giesen Sauvignon Blanc 2013 Marlborough

The Giesen brothers Theo, Alex and Marcel started the winery in the 1980s and today have 13 vineyards covering the length and breadth of the Wairau Valley. This wine is blended from 32 separate vineyard parcels, vinified in the winery in the town of Blenheim. A richly tropical nose, dominated by youthful aromas of lime, lemongrass and green herbs. Fruit on the palate leans more toward gooseberry and citrus, with a zesty acidity.

2 bottles of Brancott Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2013 Marlborough

One of New Zealand's most iconic and well-known wineries, Montana is also its largest wine company. Without Montana, New Zealand wines as we know them would barely appear on the world wine map. Producing wines that typify the Kiwi style and showcase their place of origin. New Zealand in a glass...vibrant and lifted aromas of ripe tropical fruits and gooseberry. Bracing acidity is tempered by concentrated green fruits, citrus and hints of grass with a reviving fresh finish.

Christmas Eve's Fine Wine .....Date published: 24/12/13

Chassagne-Montrachet 2011 1er CRU La Maltroie


The famed appelation of Chassagne-Montrachet, in Burgundy's Côte du Beaune, produces some of the most expensive and long-lived white wines in the world.

Chassagne's style is often described as lying between that of Puligny-Montrachet and Meursault: less fine than Puligny, less rich than Meursault but containing elements of both.

This is classic Chassagne – rich, toasty with hints of cream, vanilla and fresh citrus fruit and a long, long finish.

This wine will be a star of your Christmas dinner !!

Prosecco Salatin Extra Dry NV - £9.99 if you buy 2 or more of selected fizz (single bottle price £14.99)

Azienda Vinicola Salatin are based in Cordignano, just 13km north-east of Conegliano. This Prosecco is made from grapes sourced entirely from the DOC vineyards of Treviso, and is made in the typically fruit-focussed, off-dry style. Wonderfully aromatic and zesty, with a nose bursting with green apple fruit, accented with hints of jasmine. The persistent mousse lifts and refreshes the palate.

Graham Beck Brut Rosé NV - £9.99 if you buy 2 or more of selected fizz (single bottle price £14.99)

The grapes are hand-picked from Graham Beck's own estate vineyards in Robertson, Franschhoek and Stellenbosch.

Bright acidity and fine mousse balance well with the ripeness of the crushed berry flavours.

Laurent-Perrier 2004 - Special Offer £35

Founded in 1812, Laurent-Perrier remains in family hands to this day. This superb Brut Millèsime is a 50-50 blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, all from grand cru vineyards. A medium straw yellow in colour with an open and well developed nose.

Italian Wines to make your Christmas more memorableDate published: 13/12/13

Want to be impressed this Christmas? Well why don't you try some of these baby 'Super-Tuscans'?

These wines take some of the finest wine making traditions of Italy and pair them with Bordeaux grape varieties - with often stunning results!

All are part of our Fine Wine for House Wine Prices deal - buy any 2 and save £10! Why not treat yourself to a mixed case and explore Tuscany?

Guidalberto 2011, Tenuta San Guido, IGT Toscana - This is the 'Little Brother' to the celebrated Sassicaia (which sells for upwards of £100), and combines Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot to produce a more accessible (and affordable) alternative to the flagship wine. Soft and rounded with a great core of dark fruit. £30 or £25 on the FW deal.

Then we have two wines from Ornellaia, which along with Sassicaia rates as one of the most famous of all Italian wines.

This is a superb introduction to the world of Super-Tuscans. Fabulous value when you consider that it's big brother sells for £100+. £40 or £35 on the FW deal.

Everyone loves New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc - and this is the wine that started the revolution.

Oyster Bay takes its name from the local Oyster Bay in New Zealand's south island. It was one of the first vineyards to recognise the wine growing potential of Marlborough.

Pale straw in colour this Sauvignon Blanc is zesty and aromatic with lots of lively, penetrating fruit characters. A concentration of tropical and gooseberry flavours create an elegant and refreshing wine. The classic New Zealand Sauvignon!!

Enjoy with your Christmas prawn cocktail – embrace the 80's.

Then our FREE Christmas Wines Spotlight Tasting is not to be missed. In approx 30 minutes we go through 6 of our wines which gives you a great opportunity to try something new and exciting. Pop in this Saturday or Sunday at 3pm to taste these beauties...

Jermann Pinot Grigio 2012 Friuli  £23 Buy any 2 selected Fine Wines and Save £10 = £18

Founded by Anton Jermann in 1881, the estate has been family-run ever since, with present winemaker Silvio Jermann taking over the winemaking in the 1970s, and beginning to make wine with grapes atypical of the region. This Pinot Grigio is a world away from the Italian norm, with intense and persistent aromas, and a velvety, full-bodied feel on the palate. A stunning match for grilled seafood, wild mushrooms and rich, creamy pasta dishes.

Sancerre 'Les Comtesses' 2012 Paul Thomas £16.99 Buy 2 and Save £4 = £14.99

Paul Thomas are a small producer in the village of Chavignol, one of the most famous wine villages in the area. They only have 10 hectares, which is tiny by modern standards.Chavignol is home to a large percentage of the finest Sancerre. With a lot of south facing slopes, and excellent chalky, clay soils, the wines can develop very intense flavours. Chavignol is also a very famous region in the world of goats cheese, a Loire speciality. Passion fruit, gooseberry and lime all assert their authority and wrestle for domination. 2012 was a good quality vintage and you can see it on the palate. A searing acidity means it is brilliant with fish.

Meursault 2011 Nicolas Potel - £22

Nicolas Potel is a very famous name in Burgundy. Although now owned by cooperative Laboure-Roi, the focus on quality has been unflinching - they win a lot of prizes. Meursault is arguably the most famous white name in Burgundy, alongside Puligny and Chassagne Montrachet. Commonly thought of as the most powerful expression of Chardonnay in the world, it often has a unique flavour of frazzles, especially in old age.

A typically powerful Chardonnay, all muscle and butter on the nose. It’s tangy and lively on the palate, with apple and lemon flavours and butterscotch and toasty finish. Perfect with turkey, which needs a robust, structured white.

Rioja Reserva Viña Ardanza 2004 - £23.50 Buy any 2 selected Fine Wines and Save £10 = £18.50


Made by La Rioja Alta, Vina Ardanza is their most famous wine, only made in the most exceptional years from 360 hectares of the finest land around Haro. A really sweet, yet tangy nose of strawberry jam, cedar, vanilla, cranberry and leather—very complex and beguiling, it almost seems a shame to drink it. The palate is light and alive, slightly Burgundian, yet the intensity of flavour is incredible, as is the complexity. Higher acidity makes it a great food wine too, it has the personality to handle the Christmas bird.

Château l'Hospitalet 2011 Grand Vin - £19.99  Buy 2 and Save £6 = £16.99

This is the grand vin of Gerard Bertrand. In 2012 the IWC awarded him the prestigious accolade of Red Winemaker of the Year after his wines won 48 prizes. Chateau l’Hospitalet is a luxury hotel as well as a winery. The whole estate revolves around the southern French philosophy l’art de vivre, the art of life, which promotes an active healthy lifestyle, full of imagination, good food and good wine.

A superb nose of dark black fruit with firm and well structured palate. Damson and herbs come to the fore alongside blackcurrant and a florality that gives the wine a perfumed edge. It would be the perfect accompaniment to some hard cheese as the tannins would soften and the flavours would open up stylishly.

Cloudy Bay Late Harvest Riesling 2007£19.99  Buy 2 and Save 20% = £15.99

Cloudy Bay are the most famous New Zealand wine producer. Synonymous with Sauvignon Blanc, their other wines are every bit as impressive. When they made the decision to make a sweet wine, Cloudy Bay searched extensively for the finest sites, where a combination of cool weather for the Riesling, and consistent mists to enable noble rot was considered vital, alongside lots of sun and chalky soils.

A nose of tropical and citrus fruit is very concentrated, like undiluted cordial. On the palate these flavours are joined by honey, marmalade and apricot flavours with a little saffron from the botrytis. Ideally served with the Christmas pudding for an indulgent finish.

Fine Wine of the Week is......Date published: 07/12/13

La Réserve de Léoville-Barton Saint-Julien, 2006

£30 – Buy any 2 Selected Fine Wines and Save £10 = £25

This is exactly what Bordeaux wines are all about. The nose gently releases dark fruits aromas with some hints of vanilla and sweet spice. The palate is rich and rounded with assertive tannins, ample fruit and well integrated oak.

Decant and leave to breath and you will be rewarded. A good balance of weight and fruit ensure that you'll want a second bottle!


Try it with slow roasted lamb shanks and some creamy mash. Enjoy !!

Champagne BollingerDate published: 05/12/13

"I drink it when I'm happy and when I'm sad. Sometimes I drink it when I'm alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I'm not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise, I never touch it—unless I'm thirsty." Lily Bollinger


Bollinger Special Cuvée NV - £45 - Buy 6 Save £90 = £30

This is a classic, Pinot-dominated Champagne of great potential longevity and complexity, which tends to go toasty. The blend includes up to 10% reserve wines, which may be up to fifteen years old.

Wine of the WeekDate published: 29/11/13

Our vote for Wine of the Week this weekend is the delectable Jackson Estate "Stich" Sauvignon Blanc 2012, Marlborough, New Zealand.

£12.49 Buy 2 save 20% = £9.99

A great aperatif wine, this is the New World white for those who would normally be drawn to Loire Sauvignon's.

Although it still has plenty of the traditional gooseberry fruits aromas' - it is far more restrained and subtle on the palate than most other Marlboroughs'.

We think this would be a perfect accompaniment to some smoked salmon, or seared scallops.

Delicious... enjoy !!

Wine Of the Week - Wirra WirraDate published: 22/11/13

Wine of the Week - Wirra Wirra Church Block Cabernet, Shiraz, Merlot

£12.49 buy 2 save 20% = £9.99

An Australian hybrid of the classic Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with a spicy tang of Shiraz to ring the changes.

Rich blackcurrant fruits, with a plum and bramble nose, there are hints of black pepper, cinnamon, cedar and cloves too. The colour is deep and inviting, and the tannins are really well integrated. It was a real hit with our customers at our Winter Seasonal Tasting - so we thought we would give it a broader appeal by making it our Wine of the Week.

A robust wine, this will stand up to plenty of hearty Autumnal dishes. But we think that a slow-roasted Brisket would work particularly well.

So twist the cap, decant if possible, or if not, leave to stand for an hour or two before serving - and enjoy !!

A Xmas opportunity - join our happy bandDate published: 22/11/13

We're looking for a cheerful, hardworking individual to join us for some P/T driving work this December. You must be over 21 and have  a clean driving license.

Working 24 hours a week during December, you would be the face of Majestic Bromley delivering orders throughout the area during our busiest time of the year. We anticipate that the days you would need to work would be Thursday, Friday & Saturday from the 5th December ( 8 hours a day), and then the Sunday, Monday and Tuesday of Christmas week itself, with the last day of work being the Christmas Eve 24th December.

When not out and about in the Majestic van, we would require you to help with customers in-store, taking trolleys out to their cars, and generally helping us in the store, opening boxes, and talking to customers. An interest in wine would be advantageous, but more importantly we are looking for a real team player, who is as comfortable chatting to customers, as driving around the Kent countryside. 

As the role is fairly physical ( lots of lifting and carrying boxes ), we need someone who is not daunted by some hard work. 

If you think this is the opportunity for you, then please pop in to the store to have a chat with the team, or give us a call on 0208 462 7396.

We will need a copy of both parts of your driving license and a copy of your passport.

Vieux Remparts 2011 Lussac St-Emilion - £6.99 (if you buy 2+ bottles - single bottle price £10.99)

Lussac is one of five villages to the northeast of St-Emilion with the right to add that name to their own.

Peter's Top PicksDate published: 10/11/13

Hi all,

Now having been here for 2 months I thought I would share with you a few of the wines that I have tried that have really stood out for me and would be suited for the upcoming Xmas months, I know I shall be enjoying these by the fireplace on a cold afternoon. 

First off the Brunello de Montalcino, Banfi. This is a fantastic wine finding its roots in Italy. It has a lovely finish which lingers on the palate and the combination of cherry and chocolate is divine. A definite must buy and as part of the November Pick 'N' Mix it is on for a bargain at the moment at £19.99 down from £30. This offer ends 2nd December.

Another fine wine that has shouted at me as a must buy is the Guidalberto, again  hailing from Italy. This wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, to be honest my favourite grape varieties. It has a soft and rounded fruit profile. At £25 and part of the selected fine wine deal I shall be buying a bottle for the winter months.

My final wine that has caught my tongue whilst being here (don't worry, not a fine wine this time) has been the Viognier Reserve Speciale from Gerard Bertrand. With intense aromas of white flowers and flavours of tropical fruits, drinking this wine is like being on holiday. Take yourself away to the South of France with this wine to get over the winter chills. At £7.99 when you buy 2 or more, this is a brilliant wine, especially with seafood dishes such as paella.

Bargain Wine of the WeekDate published: 09/11/13

If you fancy a proper bargain this week, then look no further than our wine of the week; the delectable Pennautier Cabernet from Pays D'Oc.

On offer at £7.99 buy 2 save £4 = £5.99

Full of blackcurrant fruitiness, and a touch of herbiness on the finish this is a superb quaffer.  With the added benefit of a screw cap this wine is ideal for emergency evenings when you need a glass of red wine, right now.. 

A fantastic partner for spaghetti, lasagne, or your mid-week pizza.

Enjoy !!


Fine Wine of the WeekDate published: 09/11/13

To go with our Wines of California Tasting Weekend, this week our choice of Fine Wine is the:

Beringer Napa Cabernet 2010

£29.00  Buy 2 selected Fine Wines save £10 = £24.00

Full of cassis and blackberry fruits, with a hint of mint and black pepper on the finish - this is a great wine that you could enjoy now, with intense fruits and balanced tannins, but would equally reward careful cellaring, when the tannins would soften even more and the fruit become more classically supple.

A fantastic option for a rib of rare beer, or stuffed field mushrooms.

Enjoy !!

Perfect magnums for entertainingDate published: 08/11/13

We love the wines from the Matsu range, from Toro in Spain; so you can imagine our excitement when these little beauties arrived in store this week. Everything we love about the Rascal and the Tough Guy - only bigger....

So whether you go for the fresh and fruity Matsu El Picaro Magnum at £16 , or you want a bit more weight then try the Matsu El Recio Magnum at £26.  They're sure to be a real talking point at any dinner party - and we think would go fantastically well with your post-Christmas celebrations on Boxing Day. So slice the ham terrine, dish out the home-made chutney and enjoy these magnificent wines, (just make sure you've got a decent glassful for yourself).

Cheers !!

Fine Wine: Purple Angel Carmenere 2010, MontesDate published: 22/10/13

Purple Angel Carmenere 2010, Montes

Although 92% Carmenere, there is more then meets the eye with this wine. half of the grapes used for this wine are hand-picked from the Montes La Finca de Apalta Estate, a vineyard infamous for its sophistication and elegance, and the second half from the cult favourite Archangel estate. The Archangel is so famed for its forward fruit concentration, and ballsy style. Both sets of grapes are hand-picked first thing in the morning to retain acidity and freshness, and within 12 hours are in the pressing room. They are bunch pressed, allowing the grapes to remain undamaged, and then aged over 18 months in American and French oak, being re-racked a total of 3 times.

The result is a stunning wine that drinks amazingly well now, but ideally needs time to develop and mature in the bottle. 

Amazing wine at a great price = £32.50

Autumn Magic of Fine WinesDate published: 18/10/13

Château Sénéjac 2010, Cru Bourgeois, Haut-Médoc

Great Claret should be more than just a good drink, but should reflect and represent the flavours and style of the appellation from which the wine comes, and the vintage characteristics. The wines from the Médoc, on the left bank of the Gironde estuary, are predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon based, with Cabernet Franc and Merlot in lesser quantities, giving the wines a perfume and structure. The 2010 was an ideal vintage; the wines have ripe fruit and soft tannins for immediate enjoyment along with intensity and concentration for prolonged ageing.

Senejac was granted 'Cru Bourgeois' status in the 1933 classification. Since the acquisition of the estate by the family who own the 4th Growth St. Julien Château Talbot, and the wine making team of Pontet Canet began making the wines, Château Senejac's quality has improved year on year. The Château dates to 1860 and is situated in a large woodland in the commune of Le Pain Médoc, where only 39 of the 150 hectares are dedicated to vines.

Perfumed black currant, cigar box, blueberry and plum skin aromas, medium bodied with vibrant dark fruit flavours, a rich texture and long finish.

Enjoy with Roast lamb with rosemary and mint sauce.

Our range is pretty extensive, so if you're having a party or just fancy a couple of cold ones, we'll probably have what you're looking for.

Fine Wine of the WeekDate published: 11/10/13

Fine Wine of the Week - Angel's Share Shiraz 

The Australians have always done their utmost to be different - even changing the name of the grape varieties. The distinction between Shiraz and Syrah is not just in name, but in style, as instead of the Northern Rhône's white pepper and rose petals characteristics, the Australian style is typified by black pepper spices with black fruit and berry aromas and flavours, resulting in a more fruity style. This more 'forward and fruity' style of wine was, along with some drastic vine pulling and focus on quality grape varieties in the 1980's, responsible for the rise in popularity of Australian wines. Vines were introduced into the McLaren Vale in 1838, including the original Hardy Winery vineyards, and many of the oldest vines in the world still producing viable crops are in and around this region. 

Two Hands was established in 1999, with the intention of producing wine from all the growing regions of Australia, highlighting and exemplifying the characteristics of each region. The first vintage was in 2000, and over the years the winery built up a reputation as producing beautifully crafted, expressive Shiraz. The Angel's Share wine comes from the McLaren Vale, in South Australia, where the influence of the Indian Ocean tempers the climate, producing earthy, spicy wines. All the wines in the Two Hands range have playful names; the Garden series named after the proprietors' children and the Picture series, with names such as Angel's Share, Gnarly Dudes and Fly By Nighters.  Angel's Share refers to the small amount of wine that evaporates from oak barrels during maturation. Medieval winemakers assumed that angels watched over the wines and that they took their share. 

Bouquet of coffee, dark chocolate, plums, plenty of peppery spice and a hint of mint leading to a full, rich and concentrated body of ripe black fruits, soft tannins and spice. Steak is an obvious choice, although a great partner to any red meat, either grilled or in a rich sauce.

A delicious Shiraz that will appeal to both angels and mortals alike

Fine Wine of the WeekDate published: 04/10/13

Fine Wine of the Week - Chablis 1er CRU, Fourchaume, Seguinot-Bordet

Chablis is the most northerly wine making region in France, the cooler temperatures result in fresher and lighter bodied wines than the regions further south. The cooler climate and Kimmeridge clay soils and chalk sub-soils that extend through Chablis and the Loire Valley to the White Cliffs of Dover, give the Chardonnay from Chablis a unique expression.

The Romans introduced vines to the region in the first century AD, but the fame and desirability of Chablis stems from the 15th and 16th Century; the proximity to Paris and ease of transporting barrels via the Yonne River led to sales of Chablis flourishing. Amongst the longest lived of White Burgundies, Chablis can age for decades in the case of the Grand Cru wines.

The Chablis style of Chardonnay is characterised by vibrant green apple acidity, flinty and mineral aromas with floral undertones.

The family Domaine of Seguinot-Bordet can be traced to the 1590's from the outskirts of Chablis. The wine making philosophy is exemplified by the work in the vineyard, with a rigorous program of de-budding, pruning, harvesting and selecting the best quality fruit in order to allow the terrior to express itself. The vines are very densely planted, with the vines aged between 45 and 60 years old (in contrast to 'old' vines in New Zealand, where many have not even made it to 30 years old). The wine is fermented and aged in temperature controlled tanks to maintain freshness and vibrancy.

Powerful aromas of white florals, wet river stones, gun flint, and green apple leads to a body of fresh and racy vibrancy, minerality and ripe citrus fruits.

Enjoy with oysters in the half shell, seared scallops or king prawns in a chilli sauce.

Perfect food and wine matches for OctoberDate published: 04/10/13

So the game season is upon us, and I've been enjoying some great food and wine to celebrate the start of Autumn.

Thinking about putting Venison on your weekend menu ?

Then I heartily recommend matching your venison steak with some tasty red cabbage ( cooked with apple, sultana's and a healthy dash of white wine vinegar),  and a good waxy potato mash. My favourite wine for this is the Ch. Chantalouette 2007 from Pomerol ( £19.99 buy 2 Fine Wines save £10 = £14.99), the soft tannins melt into the red cabbage, and makes the venison purr ( just make sure that your venison has rested well, and is not overcooked)... Delicious !!

Or how about some Guinea Fowl ?

Matched with some proper Potato Dauphinoise, and some leaks braised in butter with crispy bacon, a beautiful buttery Chardonnay brings out the flavour of your roasted Guinea Fowl. One of my absolute favourites is the Medalla Real Chardonnay from Chile ( £11.99 buy 2 save £6 = £8.99), it's rich and powerful, but won't overwhelm your dish. Mmmmm...

So it's Goodbye to salad, and a warm Hello to the tastes of Autumn.

Now where did I put those winter woollies ?

Wine of the Week - Saint Clair Pioneer Block 21 Sauvignon Blanc

Although Kiwi Pinot Noir is making headlines, and Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah based wines are gaining a reputation for quality; Sauvignon Blanc is still the first wine that comes to mind when talking of New Zealand. Cloudy Bay put New Zealand on the map in the late 1980's with success in international competitions and the vibrant, powerful flavours fruit forward flavours that introduced people to a new style of Sauvignon.

Saint Clair began growing grapes in 1978 to supply local wine companies before establishing their own winery in 1994. Over time their understanding of the different vineyard sites led to the Pioneer Block series; wines that are made from small parcels of outstanding fruit from specialist vineyard sites prized for their individual terroir characteristics.

Pioneer Block 21 – Bell Block – comes from vineyard located in the lower Wairau Valley, east of the Blenheim township, near the sea.

Incredibly intense and powerful aromas of gooseberries, capsicums and a hint of blackcurrant and passionfruit. This is an intense and focussed Sauvignon Blanc with powerful herbaceous character, intense palate and a long, lingering finish.

Enjoy with any fresh seafood dish such as pan seared scallops drizzled with lemon and thyme.

German Parcel wines available in-storeDate published: 09/09/13

If you missed out on the recent German Riesling Parcel on-line, there's still time to stock up on a couple of the best wines which are now available here at Majestic Bromley.

From the 2002 vintage, we have the Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling Spatlese, from C.H. Berres at just £9.99

Also from C.H. Berres we have the 2003, Kinheimer Hubertuslay Riesling Auslese, at just £10.99

Both these wines represent excellent value for good vintage German Rieslings from an outstanding producer. They are drinking superbly now, but could age for a few more years too.

Delicious with Asian food, but also great with a Foie Gras starter.

Jermann Pinot Grigio

2012, Friuli, Italy

£23.00 Buy 2 save £10 when you buy any 2 selected Fine Wines = £18.00

If you thought that Pinot Grigio couldn't be a Fine Wine, then this wine will surely blow you away. About as far away from your regular P/Grigio as it is possible to get. Rich, slightly spicy, with a finish that just keeps on lingering. Truly a magical wine for Autumn.

Fabulous with a rich mushroom risotto...

Enjoy!!!!


Last days of Summer ? Orchard Cider - so no need to go scrumping just yet..Date published: 05/09/13

The weather is still glorious, and although the rain clouds may be coming this weekend, the temperature is still going to be reasonable ( we hope !!).

To celebrate this Indian Summer, we've got a bargain Cider to be had ( while stocks last);

Orchard Pig Reveller 12 x 500ml NRB for just £12 - that's a mere £1 a bottle, for this original and delicious Somerset cider.

Cheers

Autumn magic of fine wineDate published: 02/09/13

Since starting in Bromley one of the most common phrases I have heard from our customers is: "I really want to learn more about wine!" and it makes sense really - whether its having a dinner party with your best friends or crying over your latest relationship frailties, there is always a situation for a glass of vino, but it's difficult to know what is the right option to go for (try a hard hitting Oz shiraz if just being dumped -it helps....slightly).

So what I see is part of our objective as staff here at Majestic is to break down the complexity of all the choices out there, and narrow it down so in time you will be able to get a feel of what is the right wine for the situation in hand. Starting from this weekend we are going to be introducing a different fine wine to the tasting counter and this is the perfect chance for you to get to know more about these wines without breaking the bank.

The first fine wine will be the: "Jermann Pinot Grigio" and for all you Pinot fans out there (I know who you are) and those not so familiar with the grape this is a great opportunity to try a premium wine. Just ask one of our friendly staff in-store for a tasting and start or continue your journey into the world of wine!

FINE WIN(E) OF THE WEEK

Nyetimber Classic Cuvee 2004

£23.99 down from £29.99

Based in Sussex, Nyetimber have been leading the charge for English Sparkling Wine since 1988, and are enjoying a very healthy rivalry against their Champenois contemporaries.

Like all good opening batsmen, Nyetimber has a solid pedigree, a brioche nose, a fine and delicate mousse, and a super finish. There's some excellent flare in it's shotmaking too, making this our perfect choice for our opener and (we hope) winner of the Man of the Match award.

You don't need a reason to enjoy this excellent Sparkler, but it does go fantastically well with Fish and Chips, or smoked salmon blinni's.

Cheers to the Winners of both the Mens and Womens Ashes Series.

Enjoy!!

Italian bonanza - off the beaten-trackDate published: 28/08/13

We all know just how versatile Italian wine is. After all the Italians really only drink wine with food, so there is a wine to match every dish and every regional speciality. So with September on the horizon we've made our offers on Italian wine even better. With 25% off Italian wine under £20, when you buy 2 or more as part of your mixed case.  "Salute"

There are so many varieties of wine that Italy produce, that it may appear a little daunting,

So if you want to come and explore the range and styles of wine, there has never been a better time.

If you're looking for an alternative to your favourite Pinot Grigio then you may want to consider some of our other clean and crisp whites, such as :

Gavi, Montiero

£8.74 down to £6.55

Made from the Cortese grape, this is such a refreshing wine, that's just crying out for a seabass supper.

Contesa Pecorino, Pescaresi

£9.99 down to £7.49

Made from the grape Pecorino, this is a fabulous addition to your cheeseplatter, just remember to include some Pecorino cheese, as after all there is a reason for it's name.

Fremondo Greco, Sannio

£9.99 down to £7.49

Greco is reportedly a grape originally from Greece ( hence the name). It is a gorgeously aromatic and fresh wine, that will go fantastically with your pasta vongele, ( that's clams to you and me )

And if you want to try some of the best Italian reds, then these will serve you very well indeed:

Barbera d'Alba, De Forville

£13.74 down to £10.30

Grown from the Barbera grape in the Piedmont region, this wine is rich and chocolatey, with  deep cherry fruits. Roast lamb will be a great match here, just remember to add plenty of garlic and rosemary.

Rosso di Montalcino, Il Poggione

£18.74 down to £14.05

If you're looking for a real treat to go with your aged steak, then this wine made from Sangiovese, and grown in Tuscany from the hills around Montalcino would be a great choice. Deep red in colour, aged for over 12 months in barrel, there are too many superlatives for this wine. A gorgeous alternative to more expensive Brunello's.

Dogajolo Carpineto, Toscana

£10.99 down to £8.24

Considered a "Baby-Tuscan" because of the addition of Cabernet Sauvignon to the traditional Sangiovese, this is an excellent all-rounder. Full of fruit, and perfect to drink while still young, or cellar for a couple of years, the added bonus of a screw-cap, means that you can enjoy the Dogajolo with your mid-week Lasagne, or Pizza.  This has been a Majestic staff favourite for years, and it's easy to see why.


So there you have our quick Bromley guide to a few of our Italian wines, but there are many more for you to explore and enjoy.

So pop in this week and enjoy them at 25% off, but hurry these offers end on Monday 2nd September, so if you can't get in to see us, then just give us a call or order on-line and we'll deliver to your door for free ( minimum purchase 6 bottles, minimum spend £40)

We'll see you soon.



Fine Wine of the Week - Catena Alta Chardonnay 2010 MendozaDate published: 23/08/13

Fine Wine of the Week - Catena Alta Chardonnay 2010 Mendoza.

£24.00 Buy 2 bottles save £8 = £20.00

At almost 4757 feet elevation in the Andean foothills, the Adrianna vineyard's pebble covered soils and cool climate are ideal for growing Chardonnay. The fruit from the Adrianna vineyard has a purity of flavours and a minerality that is particular to this vineyard and can not be found anywhere else in Mendoza.

If you love your American Chardonnays then you are in for a treat. This wine is bursting with fruit and minerality. Tropical mango and pineapple alongside ripe pear and fig flavours. Notes of sweet spice enhances the rich palate and finishes with great freshness and a long length.

A classy wine like this deserves classy food, so try it with lobster.


Wine of the Week - Valpolicella Classico Superiore Ripasso 2010, La CasettaDate published: 23/08/13

Wine of the week - Valpolicella Classico Superiore Ripasso 2010, La Casetta

£16.99 Buy 2 save 25% = £12.7

From the beautiful hilly villages east of Lake Garda, Ripasso wines have had a portion of the fermented, dried-skins from Amarone added to them. Valpolicella Ripasso therefore combines the power and class of the Amarone with the bright fruit of the classic Valpolicella.

This wine is as every bit smooth as the bottle suggests. Full in body, it offers a nose of cherry, plum and berry fruits. The palate has a velvety texture offering a superb level of complexity and intensity.

Try this with a rich and meaty Italian pasta dish.

Enjoy !!





Coca-wineDate published: 22/08/13

You may not know that Coca-Cola owes its existence to wine!

In the mid 19th century ''tonic'' wines became popular. These were often fortified with coca, the South American plant extract better known as the source of cocaine. In 1863, Pope Leo XIII awarded a medal to Angelo Mariani, the formulator of Vin Mariani, a coca-wine drunk by millions across the world. Celebrity consumers included Queen Victoria, Thomas Edison, Sarah Bernhardt and Jules Verne. An American version, Pemberton's French Wine Coca, was produced in Atlanta by John Pemberton and developed a following among the city's intellectuals. In 1885 local prohibition laws forced him to produce a non-alcoholic version, which he pepped up with caffeine-rich kola nuts from Africa.

The rest of the story is history.


Cider with BromleyDate published: 21/08/13

As a West Country girl, my first forays into alcohol were always going to be cider related. Many home-brewed in local pubs, these were unmemorable for flavour, but pretty cheap, and if slightly ropey, the taste could be masked by adding plenty of blackcurrant cordial - a brew known as Scrumpy and black.

Thankfully those days are firmly behind me, and cider is enjoying a great resurgence amongst the British public. Artisan Cider makers are ditching the overly sweet style, and embracing the real taste of apples, and the huge variety of cider apples that they can grow,  some of which have been grown since the time of King Alfred.

If you like the taste of real cider, and it's thirst quenching attributes, then we've got some fabulous ones for you to try.

Aspalls Suffolk Draught 12 x 500ml bottles at £19.92

Aspalls Mixed Cyder       12 x 500ml bottles at £21. ( This includes their fantastic Organic and Premier Cru versions, that pack a real punch, but at 7%, are best to be enjoyed away from any heavy machinery, especially cars and lawnmowers)

HogsBack Brewery Hazy Hog    12 x 500ml bottles at £26.40    A  crisp cider, with a slightly cloudy finish, made with Bittersweet apples.

Orchard Pig Reveller   12 x 500ml bottles at £21.60     A medium sparkling cider from Somerset, and new to Majestic.

All of these ciders have such a great appley flavour, that it would be a shame to drown out the taste, so forget about pouring them over a pint glass full of ice, but enjoy them well chilled - and you won't need to go anywhere near the cordial.

Cheers then...

Magpies or squirrels ?Date published: 17/08/13

In the world of wine, there are two types of wine buyers. The Squirrels, who hide their wines away for a rainy day, patiently waiting until their priced possessions reach the perfect maturity; and then there are the Magpies, who are drawn to new and shiny things, attracted by exotic labels or grapes and regions that are new, upcoming, or just a little bit unusual.

Well, we think that most wine lovers are a combination of the two, we have a collection of favourites gathering dust, waiting for their moment to shine, but like Moths to a flame, or Magpies looking for shiny things, we also are naturally drawn to all things new.

So to embrace our inner Magpie, we thought we'd bring you our newest ( and shiniest) wines, that I'm sure we'll all be raving about over the next few months. 

On the white wine front, we've a couple of new Chardonnays that are as different from each other as they could possibly be:

Los Boldos Chardonnay, 2012, Cachapoal ( Chile)  £9.99 Buy 2 save 20% = £7.99

A rich Chilean Chardonnay, that has enough weight to stand up to most dishes, rich and unctuous, it's full of ripe, tropical fruits, with a satisfyingly long and sumptuous finish.

Chardonnay, Saint Roch de Chadeleuf, 2011,Puy de Dome ( Loire)  £11.99 Buy 2 save £6 = £8.99

An unoaked fresh Chardonnay, that is crisp, clean, and shows lots of zesty, citrus flavours, a great match with most fish dishes, but we think would be a perfect partner to a hot-smoked trout salad.

There are plenty of new Red wines coming in over the next few weeks, but we though we'd highlight some absolute gems for you.

Barolo, 2009, Natale Verga ( Italy)  £23 Buy 2 save £10 = £18

If you love your reds big and expressive, then this is the wine for you. With plenty of structure and tannins, but with bags of rich plum and cherry fruits, this wine will be robust enough to go with the strongest of cheeses, but if you also want to embrace your inner-Squirrel, will surely benefit from a few years of cellaring.

Montecastrillo, 2011, Ribera del Duero ( Spain)   £9.99 Buy 2 save £4 = £7.99

Made from organically grown Tempranillo grapes, this is an absolute corker of a wine for under a tenner. Rich and fruity, you can almost taste the heat of the Spanish sun in this wine. The tannins aren't overpowering, even though it's still quite young, and with a hint of spice at the end of the blackberry fruit, it's a great match with your mid-week Lasagne, or your Tapas inspired charcuterie platters.

Puy de Dome, Pinot Noir 2011, Cave de Saint Verny ( Loire) £11.99 Buy 2 save £6 = £8.99

On the other end of the scale, this Pinot Noir is soft and fruity, full of strawberry, blackberry and raspberry notes. You could chill this quite happily. A fabulous wine to have with your remaining salads of summer.


So there you have our pick of the newest ( and shiniest) wines ; so whether you're a Squirrel or a Magpie, we're sure you'll find something to inspire you. ( Plus there's a few wacky labels to look out for too !)

So "come and explore" !!


FINE WINE OF THE WEEK Barolo 2009 Date published: 16/08/13

FINE WINE OF THE WEEK

Wine of the Week Montes Twins, 2011, Colchagua Valley. Date published: 16/08/13

Wine of the Week

Montes Twins, 2011, Colchagua Valley.

£11.99 Buy 2 bottles save 20%= £9.59

A brilliant new addition to the Majestic Bromley team, the Montes Twins benefits from the combination of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. These two complement each other fantastically well, with the smooth elegance of the Malbec alongside the firm structure of the Cabernet Sauvingnon.

Bursting with flavours of blackcurrant, this mouthwatering wine has become a real favourite with us already. We hope you feel the same.

Decant before serving and a great partner for any steak or lamb dishes.

Enjoy!!


Bromley's sparkling guide for weddingsDate published: 15/08/13

Champagne

There's no denying it - when it comes to a toast, the world looks to this classic French bubbly. Produced in the Champagne region from 3 grapes & vastly varying in style & quality, picking the perfect Champagne for your day can be a minefield. As a general rule, Chardonnay dominated blends (think Laurent-Perrier) will be lighter & more elegant, whilst Pinot Noir (think Bollinger) gives richer, more full bodied styles. Special Offer:

Special Offer: Nicolas Feuillatte at £18.

Prosecco

A popular option for weddings, Prosecco is an Italian sparkling wine with a less extravagant production method than Champagne resulting in a more affordable fizz. Prosecco terminology can be confusing: 'extra-dry' actually means slightly sweet, & 'frizzante' is only semi-sparkling. Prosecco tends to have an aromatic nose with flavours of pineapple and refreshingly fine bubbles.

Special Offer: Prosecco La Marca Treviso £8.99.

Cava

Seriously underestimated, Cava makes a brilliantly affordable alternative to Champagne. Produced in Spain in the same method as Champagne, you can get all those flavours of fresh apple and toasty complexity at a fraction of the cost.

Staff Favourite: Codorniu Raventos £7.49.

New World

There are a range of other Sparkling wines, Australia & New Zealand in particular produce some discerning lines. Again produced in the champagne method, the Lindauer range from New Zealand & Greenpoint from Australia are wines of exceptional quality, a great option for those who perhaps want to be just a little different.

Special Offer: Cloudy Bay Pelorus NV at £15.99.

Wine of the Week - Fabulous Spanish WhiteDate published: 13/08/13

Wine of the Week

Caixas Godello, 2012, Martin Codax

£9.99 Buy 2 save £4 = £7.99

Godello is a grape that is not that well known as a single varietal, although commmonly used in white wine blends. However in the safe hands of Martin Codax, this is an absolute corker.

From the Galician region of Rias Biaxas, this Godello is really fresh and fruity. With crisp apple and pear notes, and a refreshingly clean and slightly floral finish. It lingers on the tongue with real finesse.

Fabulous with all types of fish dishes, we think this goes exceptionally well with a big bowl of cooked shell-on prawns. Just grab yourself a glass of Godello, and a big napkin and tuck in.

Cheers !!


Fine Wine of the Week: Fine Wine at House Wine PricesDate published: 10/08/13

Beaune 1er Cru, 2010 Louis Jadot, Burgundy, France £23 Buy 2 save £8 = £19

Part of our Fine Wine at House Wine Prices deal, this wine expresses the best that Burgundy has to offer. Full of rich berry fruit, with a touch of underlying spice, and soft, gentle tannins, you can enjoy this wine now, but it will only get better with a few years of careful cellaring ( if you have the patience that is..)

Great with roast Lamb, stuffed with garlic and rosemary.

Enjoy.


Improved Special OfferDate published: 04/08/13

Majestic top dogs at the IWC awardsDate published: 25/07/13

At the International Wine Challenge Awards last week, Majestic picked up
High Street Chain of the Year and Wine Educator of the Year.

This is the ninth year in a row that we have won High Street Chain of the

South East Asia Flavours - refreshing Summer salad !!Date published: 20/07/13

There's something about summer that makes me crave chillies. Strange as it may seem, I love the heat of chillies far more than I love the richness of chocolate. So having returned from my holiday in Andalucia, where I ate some amazingly fresh seafood (and developed a rather obsessive passion for clams and  ice-cold Manzanilla) I was desperate for some spicy food.

So last night the cook treated me to a real flavour of South East Asia. Reminiscent of our best meals from last years'  trip to Vietnam, we had a beautifully refreshing, mango salad. We ate ours with some Thai-inspired, slow cooked, sticky chicken wings, washed down with a glass of Waimea Estate Gewurztraminer ( £13.74 down to £10.99 when you buy 2 or more New Zealand wines as part of your mixed case), the zesty style of which is just great with spicy food.

For a truly fabulous and filling salad, that is a meal in itself, you will need only a small amount of preparation, there are no fixed amounts for the ingredients, you can increase or decrease quantities as you see fit, to suit your palate.

Finely julienne a large carrot, chop a ripe mango into small chunks, de-seed and finely chop 2 or 3 chillies (depending on your heat addiction, we use birds-eye red chillies, but you can use milder ones as suit), mix in a large bowl with loads of vermicelli rice noodles. Add plenty of chopped fresh mint, and big handfuls of fresh coriander, mix well. Finally add a generous serving of chopped peanuts (which gives you a really good crunch amidst all those fresh flavours) and a good squeeze of fresh lime juice, and mix up again.

We served it with a dipping sauce made up of: soy sauce, fish sauce, fresh lime juice, and honey ( for the real Thai/Vietnamese experts palm sugar adds the authentic touch)

The perfect accompaniment to this heatwave is a sweet and sour, hot and cool, soft and crunchy mango salad.

Try chasing those peanuts round the bowl with some chopsticks, watch the sun set, sit on the lowest chair you have in the house, and just imagine that you're in Hanoi ( Panama hats and linen suits are optional...)

Enjoy !!

With plenty of red berry fruits, a hint of cherries, and a touch of black pepper on the finish, this wine is rich and fruity and a real treat at a fantastic price.

A new staff favourite that stands up to a multitude of robust dishes, but we think it goes amazing well with extra mature Cheddar ( from Cheddar Gorge, of course)

Enjoy!!

Carménère Date published: 15/07/13

It's Chilean wine week at Majestic Bromley and I wanted to share some information about a grape I have developed a soft spot for in the last few months.

The Carménère grape is a wine grape variety originally planted in the Médoc region of Bordeaux, where it was used to produce deep red wines and occasionally used for blending purposes in the same manner as Petit Verdot.

A member of the Cabernet family of grapes, the name "Carménère" originates from the French word for crimson (carmin) which refers to the brilliant crimson colour of the autumn foliage prior to leaf-fall. Along with Cabernet sauvignon, Cabernet franc, Merlot, Malbec and Petit verdot, Carménère is considered part of the original six red grapes of Bordeaux, France.

Now rarely found in France, the world's largest area planted with this variety is in Chile in South America, with more than 8,800 hectares (2009) cultivated in the Central Valley.As such, Chile produces the vast majority of Carménère wines available today and as the Chilean wine industry grows, more experimentation is being carried out on Carménère's potential as a blending grape, especially with Cabernet Sauvignon.

Carménère wine has a deep red color and aromas found in red fruits, spices and berries.The tannins are gentler and softer than those in Cabernet Sauvignon and it is a medium body wine. Although mostly used as a blending grape, wineries do bottle a pure varietal Carménère which, when produced from grapes at optimal ripeness, imparts a cherry-like, fruity flavor with smoky, spicy and earthy notes and a deep crimson color. Its taste might also be reminiscent of dark chocolate, tobacco, and leather. The wine is best to drink while it is young.

I have a feeling that the Carménère grape has a bright future ahead of it.

Wine Producer of the Month - Jim Barry WinesDate published: 10/07/13

Wine Producer of the Month - Jim Barry Wines

Located in Clare Valley in South Australia, Jim Barry Wines has been producing award-winning wines since its establishment. The late great Jim Barry was a pioneer of the Australian wine industry. Started with a small vineyard just outside the Clare and added a prime vineyard in the Armagh area later on (purchased from Duncan McRae Wood). This property would go on to be the foundation of their red wine production – including the world renowned Shiraz ‘The Armagh’ and McRae Wood Shiraz. Soon after the old Penola cricket ground in Coonawarra closed in 1996, Jim Barry purchased the property and planted it with Cabernet Sauvignon. The original pavilion and pitch have been retained, thus preserving an important sporting history.

Jim's son Peter runs the show now with over 200 ha of vineyards in Clare Valley and 14 ha of premium site in Coonawarra.

The Cover Drive Cabernet Sauvignon

The Cover Drive is made with selected parcels of fruit from family owned Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards in the Clare Valley and Coonawarra to produce a wine that is rich, soft and approachable.

The palate is rich and full-bodied, with ripe blackcurrant fruit, eucalyptus and roasted coffee flavours and a lingering finish supported by velvety fine tannin. The wine displays harmonious balance and can be enjoyed now or will reward cellaring for up to 5 years.

Up your game when you host a dinner party and match this generous wine with a rack of lamb or roast beef.

£10.99 if you buy 2 bottles or more

The Lodge Hill Shiraz

When Jim Barry first purchased the Lodge Hill property back in 1977, he intended it as Riesling-only vineyard. However, there was a small area which had a gentle slope facing north, capturing the warmer conditions and he decided that it was an ideal place to grow a premium Shiraz.

This deep and intense Shiraz is as dark as night. Blackberry, dark cherry lead the bouquet with a touch of white pepper, menthol and roasted coffee.

Easy drinking, yet full of flavour, this is an excellent partner to all your BBQ meat.

£10.99 if you buy 2 bottles or more

'The McRae Wood' Shiraz

The wine's name and label pay homage to Duncan McRae Wood, a sheep farmer from whom Jim Barry purchased the land in 1964 and planted it with his first Shiraz. This is classic South Australian stuff, showing massive ripeness, vanilla and spices.

A big, full-bodied Shiraz, displaying ripe black fruit aromas, floral notes, and black pepper on the nose. The palate is rich and concentrated, with layers of plums, liquorice, black cherry, blackberry and some toasty oak. Best decanted to allow the flavours to open.

This wine is made using the ‘Jim Barry’ method, meaning that it can be enjoyed upon release but would equally benefit from a rest in the cellar to allow the wine to show some mature characteristics that come with age.

If you have a special occasion coming or just want to cheer yourself up with a nice glass of wine, then try this. It's an iconic multi-award winning wine which will never fail to put a smile on your face! Simply put, it's excellent.

£30

The Armagh

The name of ‘Armagh’ was bestowed by the original Irish settlers who arrived in 1849 and named the lush rolling hill after their homeland.

Sourced from a vineyard planted in 1964, this is a 100% Shiraz that spent 17 months in oak before bottling (no fining or filtration).

This wonderful, voluptuous monster boasts notes of chocolate, leather, black cherries, blackberries, mulberries, cassis and truffles. It is bright, fresh and balanced with intense yet reserved characters of sage, cinnamon, cedar and black pepper.

Wine with exceptional depth, richness, and structure, this exceptionally well balanced Shiraz can be cellared for another 10 years.

£100

The Lodge Hill Riesling

The Lodge Hill vineyard is one of the highest in the Clare Valley. This wine is produced from vines planted back in 1979.

It is made in the dry, elegant 'Clare' style with rich aromas of pink grapefruit, kaffir lime and spices; showing its Lodge Hill vineyard heritage. The palate is enhanced by a zingy, fresh acid backbone and flavours of mandarin, white peach and citrus. The wine has immense length and intensity of flavours with a crisp and zesty finish.

£9.99 if you buy 2 bottles or more

Wine of the Week - Rioja Reserva 2007/08 Marqués de RiscalDate published: 06/07/13

Wine of the Week - Rioja Reserva 2007/08 Marqués de Riscal

£14.99 buy two bottles save £8 = £10.99

Marques de Riscal brought their pioneering wine making techniques from Bordeaux to change the face of Rioja. This wine is a classic example of a Rioja reserva.

Reserva wines have to be aged for at least two years in oak. It is this ageing that gives those warm toasty notes and combined with the rich black fruits it leads to a superbly balanced wine.

Enjoy with this with the finest meats on the BBQ.

Summer is Coming, be preparedDate published: 03/07/13

Sipsmith Summer Cup

What could be more delightful than Pimm's on a hot English summer afternoon? Well, since you asked, Sipsmith's Summer Cup, that's what.

Based on Sipsmith's award winning London Dry Gin, which is distilled in copper still, the first such still in London since 1820. Then, inspired by the quinetessentially English Cups of the 1800s, it is blended with a host of carefully selected fabulous summery fruits and flavours including infusions of Earl Grey Tea, Lemon Verbena and Cucumber. The natural cloudiness comes from the real ingredients that are infused to give the Summer Cup its wonderful character and depth of flavours. Aromatic yet surprisingly dry, it's crying out for tonic water or lemonade and fruit.

Your Festival Survival KitDate published: 25/06/13

So you're nearly packed for your Summer of festivals ? You've got your maxi-dress packed, you've remembered your shorts, your sandals, your waterproofs and wellies, the essential wet wipes are ready, but what else do you really need to take with you ( other than your tent, of course) this Summer?

After years of study and research we think we may have discovered the best Majestic Festival Survival Kit,  perfect for Glastonbury, Latitude, Reading and pretty much any other music festival you care to shake a stick at this Summer, and it all fits in your cool box...

First up, a bag of ice. ( o.k. so this is only going to last for the first night, but if your cool box doesn't leak it should keep the majority of your kit cool at least until Saturday night)

For arrival: a bottle of Prosecco  ( well, you need to celebrate your safe arrival, and you never know who you will meet that you'll want to impress) which will be properly chilled

Friday night: a couple of bottles of decent Rose. You can always add some sparkling water to make a spritzer. Still cold from your cool box, this will see your tent pitch the envy of your fellow campers.

Saturday and Sunday : 3 bottles of Chilean Merlot. Easy, soft and full of fruit this should see you and your tentmates through the rest of the music, and with your bag of ice now a distant memory, will keep the night's chill at bay.

Perfect for all eventualities: a 6 pack of Badoit sparkling water - will add a spritz to your rose if you need it, provides much needed re-hydration on Saturday and Sunday mornng, and if the queue for the washing facilities is just too long, will be delightful to clean your teeth with, and sparkling water is the best to remove mud as a help for your wet wipes...

So there you have it, our take on the Festival Survival Kit.

1 x Prosecco Treviso Pasqua

2 x Domaine Chautarde Varois Provence Rose ( screwcapped)

3 x LFE Seleccion Especial Merlot ( screwcapped)

1 x 4kg bag of ice

6 x 1ltr Badoit Sparkling Water

Just don't forget the tent..

Is Cloudy Bay here to stay?Date published: 01/06/13

Is Cloudy Bay here to stay?


Some may say it was this wine that forged New Zealand's glittering reputation for New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. It used to be the case at Majestic that a store would only get one box of Cloudy Bay and the exclusive wine was reserved individually months in advance.

Although times have changed Cloudy Bay still stands tall and proud claiming the premium spot in an uber competitive New Zealand range. With wines such as Saint Clair and Greywacke nipping at the heels can it really justify its place?

In 2008 there were 1.2 million bottles of Cloudy Bay (compeared to 60,000 in 2000) produced whereas the UK's whole production stood at 1.3 million showing the power the fine wine still has in the market. A Cloudy Bay review read recently “why buy a Ferrari when you can have a Ford?” and that is the point – people love the brand name associated with it and it is seen as an iconic wine to have; almost like a household champagne name.

However as the Cloudy Bay generation grows older, and as the consumer heads towards quality rather than brand loyalty will Cloudy Bay be able to justify it's price? I certainly hope so.


Available at Majestic £21.99 if you buy two bottles (single bottle price £27.50).

Tio Pepe Fino En Rama - Wine fit for the QueenDate published: 25/05/13

Tio Pepe Fino En Rama

Tio Pepe En Rama is unfiltered, unclarified Fino Sherry. It is is produced according to the traditional methods. The wine is matured in solera system under a veil of yeast (or ‘flor’) thereby ensuring a light dry taste. En Rama signifies a Sherry that has been bottled almost directly from the barrel, without undergoing the usual processes to prepare a wine for bottling such as filtering or fining. The idea is to taste the Sherry almost as if you had visited the bodega in Spain and dipped your glass into the barrel.

Dry and refreshing wine, with apple, straw and nutty flavours all underscored by a salty tanginess.

One of the best aperitifs. Best served chilled in a wine glass. Ideal as an accompaniment to tapas, sea food, fish, hams, mild cheeses and nuts.

£13.99

A proper crowd pleaser, light and refreshing, this will be a sure-fire winner at any party, and as it's Italian, it's nice and light in the alcohol department too. Pinot Grigio is an incredibly popular grape variety at the moment, and very versatile as a food accompaniament.

Codorniu Brut NV ( Spain)  £8.99 buy 2 save £4 = £6.99

The ever-popular sparkling from Spain, this makes a great party fizz. With good bubbles and a nice fruity bouquet, this is perfect to drink on its' own as an aperatif, but add a touch of cassis and you have a brilliant Kir Royale.

Prosecco Zonin NV ( Italy)  £7.99 down from £10.99

A new arrival in to Majestic stores this Summer, it has already proved itself worthy of being included on our top party wines list.  This Prosecco is soft, delicate and just a touch off-dry, and makes a great reception glass, or can be easily transformed into a Bellini just by adding some peach juice.  At only 11% in alcohol, this is a great inclusion in any party repertoire.

Undurraga Rose NV ( Chile)  £6.66 down from £9.99

Strawberry fruits abound in this bargain fizz from the New World, made from the traditional  Champagne grapes of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Full of fizz and with plenty of berry fruits, this sparkling wine is bound to get your party started with a pop !!

Pinot Grigio Rosato, Pasqua, Veneto  2012 ( Italy)  £7.49 but 2 save 20% = £5.99

A fabulous Rose from a great Italian producer, you just cannot go wrong with a Pinot Grigio Rose. One of the most popular wines for Summer, this will match with delicate starters, but is equally at home being sipped at your garden parties. Drink well chilled, of course.

Domaine Chautarde, Provence Rose, Varois 2012 ( France)  £8.99 buy 2 save £4 = £6.99

Provence Rose's just scream  that summer ( of dreaming of summer, at least) has arrived. Delicate in colour, and with a nose and palate of soft berry fruits, this is the perfect wine for every occasion. But don't be fooled by it's innocent hue, made from gently pressed red grapes of the spicier Grenache and Syrah more typically found in your big reds from the Rhone Valley and Southern Regional France, this has a real grown-up finish.

Mountain View Merlot  2012 ( Chile)  £6.99 Buy 2 save 20% = £5.59

This is a great party red, full of soft plum flavours, and lots of berry fruits, this jammy wine will be a real hit with your guests. It partners lots of robust dishes, but goes brilliantly with your BBQ's this Summer.

LFE Selection Especial Malbec 2011 ( Chile)  £7.49 Buy 2 save 20%

Another fantastic offering from Chile that represents amazing value. You may normally associate Malbec with the wines from Argentina, but don't rule out this wine because of this. With rich juicy fruit, and a hint of chocolate and spice on the palate, this is one amazing wine that features it the wine rack of many a Majestic employee. A real party wow factor of a wine.

Wine of the Week - Marques de Caceres RosadoDate published: 27/04/13

Marques de Caceres Rioja Rosado, 2012

The sun has decided to make a come back and dowse us in its lovely and hot presence, so obviously the only logical thing to do is to crack out those bottles of rose!

This rose from Rioja has an enticing pale red colour due to the several hours that the grapes were spent in maceration before the skins were removed. The wine has a pleasant bouquet of strawberries and raspberries, mingling with fresh, floral notes.

The palate is fresh and lively, with a long lasting fruity length. A richer style of roses, which makes it an excellent match to typical Mediterranean cuisines, such as Paella and lightly spiced dishes.

Wine of the Week - Tuella Tinto 2010, DouroDate published: 19/04/13

Tuella Tinto 2010, Douro

£7.99 when buying 2 bottles or more = £6.49

This is my first "wine of the week" choice and I have started as I mean to go on.

This is a fantastic red wine made by the Symington family in the Douro Valley, Portugal.

A great example of the 'new Douro' style of table wine, it is made combining a blend of local grape varieties and benefits from modern winemaking techniques. I found this wine very easy drinking, by itself or accompanied by food. This Douro is bursting with flavours of ripe black fruits and complemented with hints of warm Cinnamon spice. A fabulous tasting wine, great with a selection of charcuterie and enjoyable whatever the mood!

If you are unfamiliar to the wines of Portugal here would be the perfect place to start.

Fine Wine of the Week - Two Hands 'Angels' Share' Shiraz 2011 McLaren Vale

£22 Buy two save £8 = £18

'Angels' Share' refers to the small amount of wine that evaporates from oak barrels during maturation. Medieval winemakers assumed that angels watched over the wines and that they took their share. With a bouquet of coffee, dark chocolate, plums, plenty of peppery spice and a hint of mint this wine has it all....and then some. A delicious Shiraz that will appeal to both angels and mortals alike.

Try it with your favourite meat feast pizza and you will be in heaven.

One of the selected new grapes was Malbec. Sarmiento went on to become president and Malbec has become Argentina's most known varietal.

What is the better way to celebrate the Malbec World Day than with a glass (or three) of Malbec.... Just pop in a choose your favourite....

Deep and inky, the wine exhibits ripe raspberry, plum and bramble on the nose, followed by vanilla and toast from 12 months in French oak. Voluptuous tannin and lush forest fruits fill the palate. Try with rich pasta dishes, or grilled lamb kefta.

Joffré Malbec 2011 Mendoza - £8.49 (if you buy 2+ bottles)

Full-bodied yet elegant, this wine is packed with expressive aromas of plum, cherry, vanilla and chocolate, following on to a rich yet subtle palate. Will drink well over the next 2-3 years, this lighter Malbec can be drunk with lighter meats such as poultry or goose.

Benmarco Malbec 2011 Dominio del Plata, Mendoza - £12.99 (if you buy 2+ bottles)

Deep red, with complex aromas of ripe red fruits. Cherry, currants and blackberries combine with notes of vanilla and coffee. This expressive wine has firm, sweet tannins giving a delightful finish.

Cheval Des Andes 2009 - £50

A project between Las Terrazas and famous Bordeaux 'first growth' Chateau Cheval Blanc, this wine combines spectacular New World terroir with Old World know-how. Matured in new French oak and made from ungrafted Malbec vines up to 80 years in age. Truly a wine to savour. Inky black and opulent, this ultra-powerful wine offers concentrated violets, brooding dark fruit and vanilla on the nose and a huge, yet supple full finish and long length.

Special Parcel of Mature RiojaDate published: 25/03/13

Special Parcel of Mature Rioja

We have secured several bottles of rare, mature Rioja from well-known producer Conde de Valdemar. Pop in to get one or three of these beauties, as they will surely sell quite fast.

Five generations of the Martinez Bujanda family have made wine since the foundation of their first winery in 1889. Conde de Valdemar is their flagship Rioja brand and is widely regarded as a benchmark for the top wines of the region.

We now have these in stock:

Rioja Gran Reserva 1986 Conde de Valdemar - £13.99 (if you buy 2+ bottles)

In 1986 only a very tiny proportion of Rioja's best wines made the Gran Reserva grade. This is one of them and it doesn't disappoint - red fruit, tobacco and vanilla are all evident on the nose and palate.

Rioja Gran Reserva 1995 Conde de Valdemar - £16.99 (if you buy 2+ bottles)

Clean, intense cherry fruit meet spicy aromas of pepper, and vanilla. The freshness of this wine at 18 years of age is simply astounding.

Rioja Gran Reserva 'Vendimia Seleccionada' 1992 Conde de Valdemar - £9.99 (if you buy 2+ bottles)

Cabernet defines this powerful wine. Blackcurrant and plum are notable on the finish, with complex notes of leather, chocolate and vanilla from years spent in oak and then in bottle.

Rioja Gran Reserva 'Vendimia Seleccionada' 1998 Conde de Valdemar Magnum - £19.99 (if you buy 2+ bottles)

Tight-knit, dense black fruit meets powerful tannin and toasty oak notes. Aged in a large format bottle, this wine is evolving slowly and has many, many years of life ahead of it.

 

These wines have been cellared in perfect conditions at the bodega, but as with any fully mature wine the colour and aroma may be different to younger wines, and you will need to take extra care when pulling the cork. The fill level is "top shoulder", which is perfectly normal for a wine of this age.

With the weather taking a decidedly Wintery turn once more, it's time to indulge in a juicy red wine, that makes you think of open fires, slow-roasted stews, and a warm cozy sweater.

Wine of the Week - Goldwater Sauvignon Blanc.

n excellent value white wine made from the famous Marlborough region. It offers a more refined and complex style than you would normally expect for a wine of this price.

What makes this wine different to other Sauvignon Blancs around the same value is the mellow finish after the classic crisp beginning. If you can imagine the smell of a freshly cut lawn in early summer and then bottled it, then Goldwater would be that bottle. Try with some fried scallops with a pea puree.

Valentine's Day SuggestionsDate published: 09/02/13

Valentine's Day Suggestions

The first recorded association of Valentine's Day with romantic love is in the poem honouring the first anniversary of the engagement of King Richard II of England to Anne of Bohemia. That was in 1381. Since then, well, you all know it. Everything is Rose.....

and here is what we think is the best wine for this day:

Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé NV Champagne - A classic pink Champagne, with plenty of stylish strawberry fruit and full of vivacity and easy-drinking charm. Unlike many rosés, though, this wine has its serious side, and can grow in depth and complexity with a year or two in bottle. Unusually made by the saignée method, leaving the juice on its skins for three days to extract colour, rather than simply adding a dose of red wine to the blend. NOW ONLY £47

Veuve Clicquot Rosé NV Champagne - Showing all the chararcteristics of the Yellow Label blend, complimented by delicate red fruit aromas from Pinot Noir grapes. £40  

Oeil de Perdrix Rosé NV Champagne - Named as its light, delicate colour matches that of the eye of the Partridge, this is a subtly delicious Champagne from Devaux. Coming from the Côtes des Bars in the south of the region, the red Pinot Noir grapes develop an unusual level of ripeness, lending the wine its hue despite a gentle pressing. Although certainly delicate in style, there is a perfect weight of fruit, developing fine biscuity characteristics as the wine matures. Special Offer £15

Trilogy Cuvée Rosé NV Jacob's Creek - A lively and aromatic nose of fresh strawberry and raspberry, with a yeasty, biscuity lift. The palate is awash with ripe yet delicate fruit flavour, held together by a creamy texture. £9.99

Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut NV Champagne - A well-priced Champagne of considerable charm. Perrier-Jouët is light, certainly, but displays a lovely weight of soft-apple fruit and an easy-drinking, well balanced style that make it extremely popular. Special Offer £25

and finaly....

Louis Roederer Cristal 2004 - Created in 1876 for Tsar Alexander II of Russia. This is champagne at its finest; the embodiment of elegance and purity. £167

Anchor Steam brand beer derives its unusual name from the 19th century when "steam" was a nickname for beer brewed on the West Coast of America under primitive conditions and without ice. The word "steam" may have referred to the pressure of natural carbonation developing in the beers . Today the brewing methods of those days are a mystery, and for many decades Anchor alone has used the quaint name "steam" for its unique beer. This beer has deep amber colour, thick creamy head and rich flavours.

Fine Wine of the Week - Two Hands 'Angels' Share' ShirazDate published: 30/11/12

 Fine Wine of the Week - Two Hands 'Angels' Share' Shiraz 2010 McLaren Vale

Two Hands Wines was founded in early 1999 by Michael Twelftree and Richard Mintz. The original aim shared by Michael and Richard was to make the best possible Shiraz-based wines from prized Shiraz growing regions throughout Australia. Their intention was, and still is, to showcase the diversity of Australian Shiraz by highlighting regional characteristics and allowing the fruit to be the primary feature of the wines. Two Hands refers to the very personable approach taken with each parcel of grapes, no matter how big or small. The wines are carefully guided through the viticulture and winemaking process by Michael Twelftree and winemaker, Matt Wenk.

Two Hands' first vintage was in 2000, starting with just 17 tonnes of fruit. In 2004 a state-of-the-art winery was built in the picturesque Barossa Valley in South Australia, specifically designed for small batch handling. 'Quality without compromise' is a core value that drives all Two Hands decisions so, not surprisingly, the wines have received international acclaim from respected wine critics, with Robert Parker proclaiming Two Hands as '...the finest negociant operation south of the equator...' In November 2011, Two Hands was named in the Wine Spectator's annual Top 100 for the 9th consecutive year, an achievement that has never been equalled by any other winery in the world.

Angels' Share refers to a small amount of wine that evaporates from oak barrels during maturation. Medieval winemakers assumed that angels watched over the wines and that they took their share.

This is a dark, red wine with a bouquet of coffee, dark chocolate, plums, mulberry and even a hint of peppermint. The full-bodied wine offers an abundance of juicy blackberry, cherry and licorice flavours with crisp acidity and velvety tannins. The finish is long with some dried berry components coming through. Delicious shiraz that will appeal to both angels and mortals alike

You can just sip it or pair with braised meats.

With gorgeous tropical fruit aromas on the nose, and teasing hints of vanilla and citrus, this Chardonnay is a real treat on the palate, with rich stone-fruits and a creamy finish. Great with moules mariniere, or Asian style grilled sea bass with ginger and chilli. Roll on summer !!

Sherry's for Life, Not Just for Christmas!Date published: 24/09/12

Sherry's for Life, Not Just for Christmas!

Now I must hold my hands up and confess, I used to think Sherry was only cracked open during the festive period of Christmas. It only took me 2 days in Jerez to make me realize how wrong I was for all these years.

My first full day began by being driven to Bodegas Hidalgo in Sanlucar de Barrameda. Once at the bodegas, we were immediately greeted by the sound of two fierce dogs aggressively barking at us, as if we had just stolen their favorite toys, but the shock of that was soon replaced by the shock of how beautiful the site of the vineyard was. With rows upon rows of grape vines fillings acres of land before us, it was hard not to snap a few pictures of the great site.

Now we come to the good part, SAMPLING! According to our host there are 2 rules that must always be followed when sampling. 1) never count the amount of glasses you've sampled, 2) drink SLOWLY!

Our starter was a lovely glass of Oloroso, known as their “Faraona”. Crisp, dry with a hint of orange zest. It was a young wine, as it had come straight out of the barrel with only a few years to age, but you could tell that it had plenty of potential to develop.

Next came something that had developed aplenty, a 42 yr old Amontillado straight from barrel. Dark amber in colour with a rich nutty aroma, a wine that you definitely have to drink SLOWLY. It was full in flavour and completely dry all at the same time. Yum!

As soon as the last sip from my glass had gone, it was quickly whisked away and topped up with a 46yr old Oloroso. This allowed me to compare and contrast my first glass with my current, and it was here where my view of Sherry had changed and my appreciation of this beautiful style began.

Once again, my glass hadn't even touched the table when it was empty, before being topped up once more. This time with a Palo Cortado. Again dry and crisp with a richness that's not over-powering.

To my surprise my glass remained empty once the last drop had gone, but the only reason for this was because we were moving to the warehouse where the Manzanilla barrels were being kept. After being showed around the vast interior filled with maturing Sherry barrels, our glasses were taken off us and a glass of Manzanilla “La Gitana” was handed to us, along with a stick of chalk to sign our very own “Majestic” barrel. The wine had all the classic characteristics of a Manzanilla, dry, light, crisp with a slight saltiness, making it a heavenly match for some delicious Spanish olives.

To my delight after our 2nd glass of Manzanilla we began heading to the seafood restaurant chosen by our host. Greeted by a smile, impeccable service and of course a glass of Manzanilla La Gitana. The wine went superbly with the fresh prawns starter, and we were even encouraged to add a dash of the Manzanilla into our seafood paella, making the main dish even more memorable and truly Spanish.

The last sherry of the day was the wine that I was waiting for, the Pedro Ximenez “Triana”. Very dark in colour with a thick, sugary density that makes it stick to the glass. A rich and opulent wine with prune and raisin aromas that makes any dessert 10 times better. Drizzled over our puddings with a glass to accompany, Heaven!!!

All this Sherry drinking, in 30ºc heat, so Sherry is most definitely not just for Christmas, but all year, all week and (at times) all day long.

Fine Wine of the Week - Viña Ardanza Reserva EspecialDate published: 15/09/12

 Fine Wine of the Week - Viña Ardanza Reserva Especial

On July 10,1890, five Basque and Rioja-based vine growers created "Sociedad Vinicola De La Rioja Alta" in what is known as the Haro Station District. This was the beginning of a fascinating business venture in which the only dream of the five founders was to craft and age high quality wines. The European spirit which is so popular today was present in La Rioja and in the winery from the very beginning. Mr Vigier, a French expert, was hired as technical manager and they were soon familiar with what is now known as “classic” production. The company changed its name to "LA RIOJA ALTA" in 1891. In 1941 the company took on its present name, LA RIOJA ALTA, S.A. A year later, when Leandro Ardanza Angulo was chairman of the board, the company registered the brand name to which they most owe the fame and renown: "Viña Ardanza".
VIÑA ARDANZA RESERVA ESPECIAL 2001
The weather during the vine's growth cycle was ideal for ensuring the highest possible quality of grape. There was hardly any rainfall worthy of note in September, so the ripening process went unhindered. Harvesting started in the first week of October. The grapes were picked in an excellent condition, with good sugar content and excellent colour parameters for high quality wine. Only three vintages of Viña Ardanza, 1964, 1973 and 2001 have deserved the classification 'Reserva Especial'.
80% of the blend is Tempranillo and the remaining 20% Garnacha. Alcoholic fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks for 14 days at a maximum temperature of 28 ºC. The malolactic fermentation process was completed in 21 days and after racking the wine was transferred to casks in March, 2002. This Viña Ardanza remained in American oak casks, which were an average of 4 years old, for 36 months, being racked by hand 6 times. It was bottled in March, 2004.
This is simply a stunning Tempranillo from one of the greatest Rioja vintages in memory: 2001. "It is a deeply coloured wine with a lovely perfume of cinnamon, lavender, incense, balsamic, and black cherry. Medium-bodied, velvety-textured, and already complex, it will continue to evolve for another 5-10 years and offer a drinking window extending from 2016 to 2036. For those seeking immediate gratification, it has the virtue of being approachable now." 94 Parker Points
£17.59 (if you buy 2 or more Spanish wines)
 

This weeks Bromley 6-pack.Date published: 14/09/12

So this weeks Bromley  6-pack, is aptly named  "The Arrival of Autumn" case,( purely to celebrate the fact that I had to put the heating on last night.)

So we've chosen a couple of brilliant warming reds, that will see you through the cooler evenings, and a fabulous white with plenty of body, that will stand up to more robust suppers ( as salads are on hold until Spring).

2 x Leyda Single Vineyard Chardonnay, Chile

This will stand up to the creamiest of fish pies, or the spiciest of Thai curries. It has a lovely ,rich, tropical-fruit nose and body, and the finish lingers for ages.

2 x Alamos Malbec, Argentina

A favourite of Bromley customers, this is a fruit packed gem, that has plenty of body and lots of black fruits, and a touch of spice, but the tannins are superbly integrated. Great with all manner of meats, and delicious with cheese too.

2 x Marques de Riscal Reserva, Spain

A classic Rioja that is always consistent, and benefits from the fact that it can be drunk now, but will also age quite gracefully too. The Riscal has a great nose and palate, with a delicious blend of up-front fruit, but also hints of spice and oak notes. Rioja is a perfect match with lamb, as the fruit brings out the sweetness of the lamb, and the tannins really soften the fatty elements. Of course, you can always have Rioja with Tapas, as it is traditional. So roast some chicken legs with chunks of chorizo in a medium oven, and add a good dash of Manzanilla in the roasting tray for the last half an hour of cooking,  serve with chick peas and spinach, and don't forget to open your Riscal half an hour before serving. Of course, a glass of Rioja while you are cooking, will only enhance the finished meal .

6 bottles of wine for just £51.94, and that is with Free Delivery.

That's a saving of £15.50, perfect for the start of Autumn.

Come Dine With MeDate published: 24/08/12

At Bromley we're feeling in the entertaining mood, so we thought we'd share our dinner menu with you all and hopefully help inspire a perfect dinner party of your own.

Now you can't start a party without any fizz! And our choice here is the Prosecco La Marca Treviso to go nicely with some filo parcels stuffed with lobster marinated in chili and lime.

Then after ushering you to the dining table, our first course of seared scallops and a chorizo salad with a sweet vinaigrette drizzle. Our wine to match this is the Caixas Albarino, as it's zesty and youthful style with hints of stone fruits and nectar, works harmoniously with the freshness and lightness of the scallops, and the spiciness of the chorizo.

The main would have to be my favourite part of the meal. We've chosen lamb cutlets on a bed of creamy mash potato, with savoy cabbage and petit pois cooked in the red wine reduction. The chosen wine is also one of my favourite grape varieties; Carmenere. The Santa Rita 120 Carmenere from Chile has a nice soft, supple texture that will work well with the succulent lamb cutlets, whilst the smokiness and slight spice from the wine will work beautifully with the savoy cabbage.

A night full of good food, good wine, and hopefully good company too! 2 bottles of each wine can entertain 12 people with ease, and to make things even easier for yourself we can deliver the 6 bottles free of charge!

Only £45.94 for the 6 bottles

Fine Wine of the Week - Tommaso Bussola ValpolicellaDate published: 17/08/12

Tommaso Bussola had only begun making wines in the late 70's and by 1983 he had already brought out his solo vintage. Since then, he has continually striven to make better quality wines by introducing hand-sorting of grapes and maturation in new oak.

His dedication and drive has allowed him to produce some exceptional wines, this being one of them. A soft and harmonious wine that has a fine balance of the typical sour cherry flavours and polished tannins.

This superb wine is drinking well now or could be stored away for a few years. Try it with a braised Beef cheek casserole or venison on a bed of stir fried cabbage with baby carrots.

An absolute bargain at this price! Definitely a must buy at £22.00

Wine or the Week - Santa Rita 120 ViognierDate published: 17/08/12

The sun has finally decided to come out of hiding and grace us with it's glorious presence, the only thing left to do is stock up on the wine and pop them in the fridge.

This Viognier is definitely a must have. With lively flavours of apricot and pineapple, with a nice zingy and refreshing finish. Perfect if you would like to experiment and move away from the usual Sauvignon Blanc, and more importantly perfect for this hot weather!

Either drink on its own with some friends and family, or try with Chinese-style chicken or prawn dishes or a vegetarian stir-fry.

Only £5.99 when you buy 2 or more Chilean wines. Come down now and give it a go!

Wine of the Week - Marquis de Caceres RoseDate published: 11/08/12

 The sun has decided to make a come back and dowse us in its lovely and hot presence, so obviously the only logical thing to do is to crack out those bottles of rose!


This rose from Rioja has an enticing pale red colour due to the several hours that the grapes were spent in maceration before the skins were removed. The wine has a pleasant bouquet of strawberries and raspberries, mingling with fresh, floral notes.


The palate is fresh and lively, with a long lasting fruity length. A richer style of roses, which makes it an excellent match to typical Mediterranean cuisines, such as Paella and lightly spiced dishes.
 

£7.99 when you buy 2 or more bottles!

Fine Wine of the Week - Muga Seleccion EspecialDate published: 11/08/12

 Only the best grapes are selected for this magnificent wine! Intense, concentrated and powerful aromas of black fruit, red berries and spice, with hints of wild flower that complements an intense and powerful fruit driven palate with layers of flavour and exotic spice.

An harmonious wine that will age gracefully for another 10 years! But can also be enjoyed now! Buy 2 bottles with this bargain deal, and try it with a nice piece of game or duck then store the other away for a couple of years to compare the differences that time has made.
 

£20.00 when you buy 2 or more bottles
(£25 buy 2 save £10)

Slightly ( dare I say it..) bored of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc ? Or just looking to try something new, and maybe a little off the beaten track ?

Then this could be the wine for you.

Made from Pinot Gris, and from the famed vineyards of Central Otago, the Mount Difficulty Pinot Gris is a gorgeous fresh white wine, that does not stint on flavour or body either.

As part of our New Zealand 20% offer, this wine is down to £14.99 when you buy any 2 or more New Zealand wines as part of your mixed case of 6.

Fermented at cool temperatures and then aged for 4 months, to add complexity and body, while preserving the full fruit aromas and palate. Think pears and peaches,  hints of fruit tropical fruit salad, with a finish of amazingly balanced acidity and stone-fruit minerality.

Perfect with one of my favourite summer lunches, plenty of freshly cooked shell-on prawns, crusty bread,( wet wipes) and a jar or mayo.

Now we just need to see the sun again .

Enjoy !!

Amarone Costasera Masi 2007 - £30 a bottle, buy 2 save £6 = £27

Bring out the cheese, this is the wine your Camembert was made for !!

In a 3 word wine review, this wine would read: opulent,decadent and massive

Made from semi-dried grapes Amarone is a wine without equals ( in my humble opinion)

Chunky cherry and rich black berry fruit, with a touch of vanilla, chocolate and green peppercorns. There are also hints of star anise , cinnamon and a depth of flavour and complexity that will tantalise your taste buds for hours...

Great to drink now, or to lay down for a few years, this wine will definitely benefit from decanting ( or pour into a jug to get the breathing process started)

A brilliant wine to match your strongest and most aromatic cheeses, this is a serious wine, that we find is a superb alternative to port at the end of your meal. Enjoy !!

Wine of the Week - Martin Codax AlbarinoDate published: 13/07/12

 When people think about the white wines of Spain, most would only think of white Rioja, whilst the amazing grape of Albariño simply slides by under the radar. So I thought I'd introduce this wonderful wine to you all.

This fine specimen has delicate peachy aromas with slight hints of spice and herbs. A crisp and refreshing start, with the initial taste of peaches & stone fruits on the tongue. When the lively fruits begin to die down, hints of honey & floral characteristics begin to appear.

This is perfect for those who want a change from the New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and those who have just discovered the Viognier variety.

Have this as an apéritif when hosting a dinner party, or match with freshly grilled lobster with a garlic butter glaze.

Fine Wine Friday - Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Poliziano Date published: 06/07/12

Oh we have a nice little treat for you guys this week!

A full bodied red, with ripe plum, blackberry and dark cherry fruits. They are just for starters, as it has layers of complexity, almost making you feel as if it's playing games with your palate. As the fruity flavours begin to die down on the palate, the dried herbs and vanilla characteristics begin to emerge. The oak is perfectly integrated, allowing the firm tannins to balance with the fruit character. This is without a doubt a good quality wine, and at £20.00 when you buy 2 or more bottles, it's definitely a bargain in my books!

Try it now with a nice hearty beef stew or even with a nice piece of juicy steak! Or simply come down and try it on our tasting counter to help you decide on what kind of meal you want it with.

Wine of the Week - Santa Carolina Sauvignon BlancDate published: 06/07/12

This is a fine example of a Chilean Sauvignon coming from the Leyda Valley, said to be one of the finest parts of Chile for growing the Sauvignon blanc grape. Santa Carolina's vineyards are only 8 km away from the Pacific Ocean, which results in the Homboldt Current carring away much of the heat of the valley floor; thus preserving the freshness and acidity of the grape.

The Wine is bright and vibrant, a lemon yellow in colour with some greenish tinges that shows it's youth. It's full of citrus and tropical flavours, with a nice clean and refreshing finish. Perfect if you're trying to branch out from the usual New Zealand Sauvignons.

Perfect on it's own when nicely chilled, or partner with a nice picnic salad or grilled sea bass seasoned with a lemon dressing.

Only £6.79 when you buy 2 or more Chilean wines!

Pop down now and give it a go, it's open on our tasting counter!
 

New Fine Wine ArrivalDate published: 23/06/12

 Just arrived this week, and sure to fly off the shelves, is Guidalberto 2009, Tenuta San Guido, IGT Toscana.

At £30, buy 2 save £10, coming down to £25, this is a bit of a bargain, we think.

The "little brother" to the incredibly famous ( and incredibly expensive) Sassicaia, this is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with a small percentage of Sangiovese, vinified separately before being blended and then aged in a combination of French and American oak.

A mini "super-Tuscan", that is drinking now, or can age for a few years too.

As a big fan of the super-Tuscan,( but not such a huge fan of their prices) this seems to tick all the right boxes.

Rich in fruit, and big on flavour, this wine cries out for Rib of Beef, or the best dry-aged steak you can find.

We are sure that you'll agree.

Rioja Gran Reserva 2003, Vina Eguia

Made from the Tempranillo grape, this is our newest addition from the ever-popular Vina Eguia Bodegas. The wine comes from vines averaging 40 years of age, and the Rioja spends 30 months in barrel, and then a further 3 years in bottle before it is released.
A mature Rioja, with plenty of fruit on the nose and palate, but with age comes complexity, so here we also get hints of prune, leather, and raisins, and the oak ageing adds notes of vanilla and caramel.
Enjoy with your favourite Tapas dishes, some great olives and fresh bread generously dunked in the best olive oil you can find.

 As it starts to get a little warmer ( we hope), now is the time that I begin to get very excited about fish dishes.

So it was with great anticipation, that I raced home after work last night for "him-in-doors" latest offering.

Pan fried salmon fillets, served on a bed of crushed new potatoes and pea and leak mash.

Delicious !

Our wine of the week, the Reuilly Cuvee Nathalie from Nathalie Lafond went perfectly with the dish.

Clean, crisp with a really fresh finish, this is a great alternative to Sancerre or Pouilly Fume, and at £8.99 on 2 or more, a fantastic price.

Bon Appetit !

Something to Cheer Us Up... Fine Wine of the WeekDate published: 15/05/12

So much for drinking provence rose in the sun with the BBQ going; we need a rich, warming red to enjoy with a roast whilst sitting in front of the fire. Our fine wine of the week is the La Réserve de Léoville-Barton 2009 St-Julien.

From the gravelly dunes of Léoville-Barton's vineyards, leading down to the bank of the Gironde, La Réserve is the second wine of this famous property. As an earlier drinking version of the grand vin, this is real value for money.

With a classic 'left bank' nose of smoky blackberry fruit and pencil lead, the palate is rich and rounded with assertive tannins, ample fruit and well integrated oak.

Enjoy now or put down for 5 years. Perfectly matches a delicious lamb dish.

Such a great wine and an even better price - £25.

Bromley's Wine of the WeekDate published: 15/05/12

We have enjoyed some great Italian wines this week to celebrate Italian Tasting Week. You won't be surprised to hear we have chosen an Italian wine for our wine of the week. The stand-out white was the Falanghina 2010, Terredora.

Falanghina is a more unusual grape from Italy has been on its lees aging before bottling which gives it added depth. But there is no oak been used so it is still light and fruity.

There is bags of citrus fruit and hints of apple coming across on the palate which makes it a great all rounder. On the finish there is a hint of nut which is well integrated.

Open and enjoy now as the perfect match to a wide range of dishes from fish to poultry to roasted vegetables.

With 20% off all our Italian wines, this is £8.79. And is open to try in-store at Majestic Bromley.

Tom's Movie and Wine For The Bank Holiday.Date published: 06/05/12

Tom's Movie and Wine For The Week.

This week is a bit different as it is the bank holiday so I have found a film for the Monday that you can watch with a bottle of wine.

This bank holiday I have gone for Buffy the Vampire Slayer 1992 and yes they did make a film before the TV series. This film is a comedy horror all about a teenage girl that learns she is destined to battle vampires. The film is all a bit light hearted and the horror is nothing compared to the films of today. You will be able to see why they went with Sarah Michelle Gellar and not Kristy Swanson for the TV show, as the acting is bad in places though works well with the comedy of the film. (Ben Affleck does appear in one scene, see if you can spot him). The wine to go with this film and make that great night in on the Bank Holiday is the Beaujolais-villages 2010 Domaine des Nugues. This pure Gamay is hand harvested and gives aromas of red berries, red fruit and spice, with light soft tannins that makes very easy drinking. I have picked this wine to go with the film as it's light, easy to drink and perfect for a comedy. The vibrant red colour of the wine does look a little like the blood from the film, which is another plus point.

The Film is on Monday 7th of April at 7.20pm on Film 4, so TIVO or Sky+ it, so you can watch it whenever you want with my wine of choice over the Bank Holiday.

Enjoy.....

Martinborough Vineyard Pinot Noir 2009

Martinborough Vineyard produces some of the best Pinot in New Zealand, having made some of the first plantings near the town of Martinborough. Their consistently excellent and internationally acclaimed style has come to represent the terrior of the Martinborough Terrace. A fantastic, complex and seductive aroma of red cherry, spice, tobacco and earth. Perfectly balanced, an elegant and beguiling structure of tannin and fruit and a long, complex and layered finish. If you can resist drinking it, the wine will develop and improve over 10 years, but the seductive fruit allows for immediate drinking.

It is open on our tasting counter to try and is really worth the money.

Tom's Movie and Wine For The Week.Date published: 26/04/12

Tom's Movie and Wine For The Week.
Every week I go through the TV listings, and pick out, what I think to be, the best film that is on TV and match the wine for the film.

This week I have picked Along came a Spider (2001), which is the perfect mix of mystery, thriller and crime. The film is about a congressman's daughter ,under Secret service protection, who is kidnapped from a private school, by an insider, who then calls Detective Alex Cross, (played by the the voice of Hollywood, star Morgan Freeman) enticing him in to solve the case, even though it may cost him his career. The wine to go with this film and make that great night in, is the Cloudy Bay Te Koko from Marlborough., on offer at £23.99 when you buy 2 or more New Zealand wines. I have picked the wine as like the film it is complex and not your typical sauvignon blanc. The wine is fermented with 'wild yeasts' and aged in oak barrels which will make it unlike anything you have tasted before. This is that rare breed, a Sauvignon Blanc for Chardonnay drinkers that is really worth the money. The wine works with the film so well as they are both different from what you normally expect and keep you guessing right to the end (But the film did have to change it's ending).

The Film is on Friday 27th of April at 9pm on More 4 or at 10pm on More 4 + 1, or if all else fails just TIVO or Sky+ it, so you can watch it whenever you want with my wine of choice this week.

Enjoy.....

Tom's Movie and Wine For The Week.Date published: 17/04/12

 Each week I will go through the TV listings, and pick out what I think to be the best film that is on TV and then match the wine for the film.

This week I have picked Mad Max :Beyond the Thunderdome from 1985, which is the 3rd in the Sci-fi series, with lots of action and plenty of car chases ( they even had to alter an automatic car for Tina Turner, as she couldn't drive a manual). Perfect for that Friday night in !! This film is a great Cult Classic, out before I was even born and still attracting a cult following today. The film is good fun, with lots of action, that appeared very violent at the time, but is nothing compared with the films of today. The wine to go with this film and make that great night in, is the Te Tera Pinot Noir from Martinborough., on offer at £13.99 when you buy 2 or more, ( still cheaper than a night at the cinema and the obligatory popcorn) . This wine works well with the film as it is light, and brimming with lots of ripe berry fruits, combined with a hint of mocha. The wine is not too big or serious, so works perfectly with a film that is a little bit old, but still great fun to watch . With a very young Mel Gibson ( who is still Australian at this point in his career) and ( the immortally glamorous and diva-ish) Tina Turner, who had to wear a steel-mail dress that weighed more than 55 kilograms for the film, and of course, that showed off those trade-mark legs !!

The Film is on Friday 20th of April at 9pm on ITV4, so TIVO or Sky+ it, so you can watch it whenever you want with my wine of choice this week.

Majestic Bromley NewsletterDate published: 16/04/12

Well it has been a very exciting couple of weeks since the newly re-vamped Bromley store re-opened its doors on 30th March.

So here's a quick re-cap of our news and views at Majestic Bromley.

Our opening weekend was a flurry of activity, with lots of you coming into store to check out our new floor!! The feedback has been great, with most thinking that the store now has a feeling of more space, with a better lay-out and lots more light, and of course brilliantly bright white walls.

The tasting counter proved very successful, with Prosecco di Conegliano at £8.99 open to try, and our Wine of the Week, Villa Maria's Wairau Sauvignon at £9.99, plus our Fine Wine of The Week, Vina Ardanza on offer at £17 when you buy 2 or more.

We also said a fond farewell to Lauren, our Assistant Manager, who has now gone to the Sevenoaks store.

Easter Week was celebrated with our best Easter Specials on the tasting counter. The highlights proving to be our Wine of the Week, the fabulous John  X Merriman from the Rustenberg estate in South Africa ( a great alternative to Bordeaux) on offer at £9.99 when bought in the 20% off South Africa deals. The Fine Wine of the Week was Amarone Masi on offer at £26 when you buy 2 or more, a wonderfully rich and complex Italian stunner. Lindauer Blanc de Blanc on offer at £8.99 was the perfect New Zealand sparkler to put a little fizz into the Easter celebrations.

This week we have been gearing up to World Malbec Day, with plenty of Malbecs on the counter to try. The pick of the bunch we think is the Vinalba Malbec Reserva at a superb price of £7.99 on 2 or more, we also named this our Wine of the Week. Other Malbec highlights are the Catena Malbec and the Umbral Malbec, both on offer down to £9.99. It is certainly a week to get the best beef cuts from your favourite butcher.

We also have the Montana Brancott Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand on a special offer this week, at only £5.99 this is sure to hit all those Marlborough Sauvignon buttons.

Fine Wine of the Week is the Chateauneuf-du-Pape Vignoble Abeille from Mont Redon down to £22 on 2 or more, a classic French Rhone, with plenty of spice and body for all those Franco-philes.

We also have the Chapel Down wines back in stock,( ready for the patriotic fervour over the next few months); including the Flint Dry, Bacchus and English Rose in the still wines, and the classic Brut NV, the Pinot Reserve 2005 and the English Sparkling Rose on the sparkling front. ( I can personally vouch for the Pinot Reserve 05, which was just the perfect start for Saturday night..)

Our Italian wine range has had a re-vamp recently too, with lots of new grapes and wines to get excited about. Our current delights being the Campofiorin from Masi, a Pecorino from Colline Pescaresi and the new Primitivo, Surani from Costarossa, and with more new lines coming in all the time, this Summer looks like an exciting time in our Italian section.

We are also looking forward to our up-coming Wine Events, with a Wine Course this Thursday, a Wine Walk on Sunday, and our bi-annual Wine Evening on 24th May ( further details and how to book spaces can be found on the Events section of the Webpage), so hopefully we will see you here soon.

April showers are upon us! But treat yourself..Date published: 11/04/12

 After that beautiful spell of glorious sunshine I don't know about you but this rain is making me want the sun to return (eventhough it is needed what with hose pipe bans rising!)

But to try and lift your spirits here's a few suggestions as to what you could match with the delightful selection of just some of the wines we have on our tasting counter at the moment. Right here it goes:

Reds

-Mocha Java Merlot (South Africa)buy any 2 S.A 20% off- £5.99

    This could be paired with Lamb chops drizzled in a light mint sause, or peppers stuffed with mince and finely chopped onions, or belly of pork served with char grilled vegetables.

-Chateau Guiot (Southern France) Buy 2 save £4- £5.99

    You could match this with mini mince beef burgers with a mozerella centre, a hearty lasagne or even the traditional bangers and mash!

Whites

-Oriano Grillo (Italy) Buy 2 save £3- £5.49

    This works best with nice light dishes like sea bream served on a bed of steamed vegetables, palma ham wrapped around asparagus or just a tuna and cruton salad.

-120 Viognier (chile) Buy 2 save £3- £5.99

    Being a fresh apricot driven wine this would perfectly suit dishes like grilled prawns served with sweet chilli sause or a chicken stir fry or how about a selection of sushi.

 

Well I hope these have given you some inspiration on this drizzly day.

Enjoy.

Saturday night, gourmet feasts, Prosecco La Marca and Barbaresco Mondino BussoDate published: 08/04/12

 Having been home alone on Friday with just baked beans on toast and a glass of Vermentino from Poggioargentiere, normal service was finally resumed last night when "him indoors" returned to prepare our pre-Easter Saturday night supper.

First off, a glass of Prosecco La Marca Cuvee NV (£13.99 down to £11.99 on 2 or more), which we enjoyed with Poached Duck Eggs and some tender stems of Asparagus ( a grown-up alternative to the childhood "soldiers") to dunk into the eggs.

The main course consisted of pan-fried Chicken Livers ( which had been soaked in milk for an hour before hand, to make sure they were deliciously tender), served on a Water Cress and Rocket leaf salad, with Wiltshire Cure Streaky Bacon roasted in the oven to ensure full crispiness, and Pomegranate Seeds scattered over the whole, ( who knew that I had skills when it came to a wooden spoon and half a pomegranate?)

This was served with Date and Walnut Bread, and perfected with a glass of Barbaresco Mondino 2008., Piero Busso ( £19.99)

If only all Saturday nights were as glamourous!!

Roll-on 5 o'clock and a roast leg of lamb ( to which I will be contributing my mothers mint sauce recipe, and of course the wine...., but which one? Oh the decisions..)

Happy Easter

Bromley Fine Wine Of The Week is .....Date published: 05/04/12

Amarone Classico Costasera 2007 Masi

Run by the Boscaini family for the past six generations, their wines are rooted in tradition, representing the classic Venetian styles. This Amarone is made by drying the grapes on bamboo racks throughout winter, after which the dried berries undergo a very long fermentation period of around 80 days in total, in a mixture of steel vats and Slavonian oak barrels. Immensely full-bodied and complex, with intense and mature dry fruit aromas. Drink with game, mature cheese.

Was £30 and is now down to £26 when you buy two bottles.

Welcome to the new and improved Bromley storeDate published: 30/03/12

Chislehursts Wine of the WeekDate published: 10/03/12

Mandolin Merlot,

California

£12.99

Buy two bottles as part of your

mixed case...£9.99

California's Central Coast is a Pacific-influenced region previously famed for white varieties, but increasingly known for reds such as this with great purity of fruit. Winemaker Philip Zorn sources grapes from partner growers throughout this region.

The region's trademark ripeness and purity shine through, with ripe, sweet cherry, blackcurrant and plum fruit and subtle herb notes. Integrated oak smooths the ample tannins and adds vanilla and spice.

Drink with tender meats such as oxtail, braised lamb shanks or pork loin.

Taste
Deep violet in colour, the nose is focused with ripe blueberry and plum intermingled with subtle leather, vanilla and tobacco notes. A complex and fruit driven palate, the finish is long and lingering.

Enjoy
This wine deserves to be served with rich beef casseroles, hung game, or rare fillet steak.

The second wine of the famous classed growth, Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste shone in this magnificent Pauillac vintage. It is made primarily of Cabernet Sauvignon and was vinified in French oak barrels for 18 months.

Thrifty Thursday!Date published: 05/01/12

We've chosen a great value red wine that will go perfect with rich beef stews on cold days this January!

Domaine Tranquilité has powerful black fruit flavours with lots of spice and layers of leafy, herbaceous complexity. Also you'll find the tannins are now nice and soft after 6 months of aging in French oak barrels on top of some bottle aging. The wine is from acclaimed Bordeaux winemaker Bernard Margrez and combines both Bordeaux and Languedoc styles. This is a limited wine and at a great offer at the moment at £6.49 when you buy two bottles or more so do snap it up while you can!

Fine Wine FridayDate published: 02/12/11

Petaluma was founded by master winemaker Brian Croser, now of Tapanappa. Coonawarra has a similar climate to Bordeaux, and this red is blended predominantly from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with smaller portions of Shiraz and Petit Verdot.
Taste
This is a lovely, complex, fruit driven wine with an abundance of dark fruit flavours and a typically spicy undercurrent.
Enjoy
Enjoy with peppered lamb steaks.

Magnificent MondaysDate published: 19/09/11

 Our pick of the bunch today is Domaine de l'Aigle Pinot Noir from Gerard Bertrand, on offer at £8.49 on 2 or more bottles. Part of the Sud de France Festival celebration that we've been having this week, this wine is an absolute bargain at the price. More like a Burgundian red than we were expecting, full of soft, berry fruit, and with a lovely supple finish. Perfect for duck or poussin, this is an excellent Dinner Party wine, and the weight of the bottle feels very luxurious too.

Open on the tasting counter today, so pop in a give it a try.

Splendid Sunday!Date published: 18/09/11

Treat yourself to a lovely bottle of Cote Rotie from the Rhone valley sourced from roughly 5 acres of Syrah vineyards. The wine is young from 2009 but is still very aromatic with aromas of cherry, black fruits and spice with an enjoyable suppleness, but keep this wine for 5-10 years and it will open up beautifully and develop more complex characters! It's currently £40 a bottle but it certainly won't dissapoint and will be a great investment for your cellar.

Thrifty ThursdayDate published: 15/09/11

 Our best deal of the day today is a new entry. Riverlands Run Sauvignon Blanc 2011 is from the impressive Marlborough region of New Zealand, and is on offer at only £5.99 on 2 or more bottles as part of your six. Full of zesty gooseberry fruits and a hint of tropical flavours on the nose, this is an excellent match with most fish dishes. Try it with roasted sea-bass stuffed with fennel and dill and a drizzle of good quality olive oil, for a  Meditteranean-style supper.

Sud de France FestivalDate published: 15/09/11

 The Sud de France Festival starts tomorrow, and to celebrate we are featuring the best or our South of France wines on our tasting counter from 10 AM tomorrow morning..

Spanish tasting weekDate published: 08/09/11

 Our Spanish tasting week starts tomorrow, so if you want to know your Rioja's from your La Mancha's or Rueda's, this is the week for you to visit the Tasting Counter

Thrifty ThursdayDate published: 08/09/11

 Durius "Natural Reserve" Tempranillo, from Arribes del Duero has long been a Majestic staff favourite.  On offer at £4.99 when you buy  2 or more Spanish wines, now is the perfect time for you to discover why we keep recommending it. ( Plus they have an amazingly cool hotel if you're visiting Spain )

With plenty of up-front fruit and a touch of creamy oak on the finish, this is an incredible wine for under a fiver. Close your eyes an imagine a far more expensive Ribero del Duero, and you won't be disappointed.

Partner with really weighty casseroles or a very mature cheese, such as Aged Gouda.

Off the Beaten Track WednesdaysDate published: 08/09/11

One of the Cote du Rhone Villages that has finally become an appellation in it's own right, Rasteau is an under-rated wine with fabulous potential.  The 2009 Rasteau from Domaine Notre Dame des Pallieres is full of flavour, and amazingly rich in colour in the glass. Intense flavours of blackberry, blackcurrant and with undertones of prickly spice and pepper on the nose,these marry brilliantly with the lingering palate. Sturdy enough to match the gamiest of meals or the most robust of cheese boards. We love this wine ! Although at a hefty 15% you'd best walk home afterwards.

On offer at £9.99 when you buy 2 or more.

Too Good To Be TuesdaysDate published: 06/09/11

 O.K. so the weather is appalling, but that doesn't mean that we have to start drinking heavy reds just yet !

Our vote for wine of the day for this weeks Too Good To Be Tuesday is the Silver Medal winning Mount Difficulty Pinot Gris £17.49.

From the Central Otago region of New Zealand, this puts most Italian Pinot Grigio's in the shade, and is worth every penny.

Magnificent MondaysDate published: 06/09/11

 A fruity little number, perfect for the start of the week. Yali Reserva Viognier from Chile, on offer at £5.99 when you buy 2 or more as part of your mixed case of 6. An excellent alternative for those who like Chardonnay, this Viognier is one of the "trendy" grapes of the moment. With fresh peach and melon fruit flavours on the nose and palate, this will stand up to most dishes, but is especially great with all manner of chicken recipes.

So why not give it a whirl, and see why this grape is doing so well in the New World.

Try it against the medal winning PGI Pays d'Oc Gerard Bertrand Viognier Reserve Speciale( at £6.99 for 2+ bottles offer price) for a New World v Old World wine comparison.

Splendid Sunday!Date published: 04/09/11

 If you haven't already got a nice bottle of red for your Sunday Roast why not try the Rioja Reserva Viña Real 2005 by CVNE. This Rioja is drinking well now and goes great with rich meat dishes and if you have any left from your roast it will go well with fine cheeses for supper this evening. The wine is ruby in colour with ripe autumn fruit aromas and spice whilst the palate is round with good ripe tannins, notes of vanilla and a warm lingering finish, so it really is the perfect wine now autumn is with us! It's currently on offer at £13.99 from £17.49 when you buy two of the same bottle or with another Spanish wine as part of the regional deal this autumn at Majestic!

Sumptuous Saturday!Date published: 03/09/11

Bring some finesse to your Saturday night in with a super-elegant Champagne! Treat yourself to a Barons de Rothchild NV made from a Chardonnay-dominant blend of grapes grown primarily in the Grand Cru sites of Cote de Blancs. The price is down at £39.00 when you buy two bottles or more of any Champagne on the same deal and it comes with a lovely gift box so also great for presents!

Fun and fabulous FridayDate published: 03/09/11

 Our choice for a fun and fabulous Friday this week is the Gold Medal winning Soave "La Rocca" 2009 from Pieropan at £22 a bottle when you buy 2 or more. Made from 100% Gargenega this is in a different league from other Soave's you may have tried. Rich and almost nutty, this is a superb wine with a fresh and balanced finish that is unsurpassed. Go on, give it a try and see just why it deserves it's Gold Medal Winning status !

Thrifty ThursdayDate published: 01/09/11

 It's nearly the end of the week, so it must be a Thrifty Thursday choice. Our wallet friendly wine this week is the delectable Muscadet Croix Blanches on offer at £4.99 when you buy 2 or more as part of your mixed case of 6 bottles. Fresh, clean and full of apple and citrus flavours, this is a brilliant match with lightly pan-fried fish, or grilled chicken.

Off the Beaten Track WednesdaysDate published: 31/08/11

 For all those suffering the mid-week blues, the perfect pick-me-up can often be found in finding an unusual wine that may not have previously been on your wine radar. So for this weeks wonderful Wednesday may I be so bold as to suggest a Southern French Tempranillo ? Normally associated with the best wines from Spain, the Domaine du Pech Tempranillo from Vin de Pays de Caux is an excellent Wednesday find. Big on black fruits such as blackberry and blackcurrent, and with a touch of spice and a hint of chocolate this is a perfectly weighted juicy red. On offer at £6.99 when you buy 2 or more, I guarantee that this will lift even the dreariest of evenings. Try it with a good pork cassoulet flavoured with Paprika to get the real Continental experience.

Tune in tomorrow for our pick of the day for Thrifty Thursday.

Looking for a new dessert wine?Date published: 31/08/11

 To coincide with the launch of Autumns Grape to Glass, we have a selection of our New Wines open this week. One of our newest additions is the Rustenberg Straw Wine, a delicious dessert wine from the Coastal Region of South Africa. £12.49 or £9.99 when you buy any 2 South African wines as part of your miced case of 6 bottles. The grapes are dried out for 4 weeks on straw mats ( hence the name) to intensify the sugars. I first had this last week and was very impressed. You could serve it with foie gras as a great starter accompaniment or match it to a good fruity pudding such as the first rhubarb crumble of the season, or even have it as an alternative to port with a generous helping of ripe Camembert !

So why not pop in and try it while it's on the Tasting Counter - it won't be around for long..

Probably... the best wine for BBQDate published: 11/08/11

 Our team vote for the best BBQ wine has got to go to : Argentinian Malbec.

Fruity and full of flavour, with soft balanced tannins on the palate - what else would you want with a well-grilled sausage, or rack of lamb, or homemade kebab ?

With high altitude grapes adding a healthier hint ( or so they say, with medical studies abounding on the benefits for the heart from drinking Malbec), there is a Malbec for everyone in our comprehensive range of styles and prices.

From the fruity and quaffable Argento Malbec on offer at £5.99, the plummy and amazing Catena Malbec on offer at £9.99, to the audacious and sublime weighty offering of Catena Alta Malbec on offer at £21, there is a real variety out there to try.

So throw a steak on the barbeque, enjoy some Malbec and revel in the inner Tango, Gaucho outfit optional.

Homework taken very seriouslyDate published: 01/08/11

Here at Majestic Bromley we take our homework very seriously, trying new wines so that we can give you some good and sound advice about our products. So when we find a wine that we all adore, it's a pleasure to tell you what we love about it.

Last nights homework was the delectable Lirac Vignobles Abeille 2008 from Mont Redon, on offer at £10.99 ( when you buy 2 or more bottles as part of your mixed case of 6)  A blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Cinsault and 10% Syrah, all hand-picked a stone's throw away from Chateauneuf du Pape.

Soft tannins, pure fruit and a beautiful blackberry finish - the perfect companion to pan-fried calves liver, baked crispy back bacon, potato and leek rosti, and caramelised onions softened with butter and cooked in duck broth.

So the weekends assignment was hard work, but I'd give the wine and the cook ( of course) a resounding 10 out of 10.

Now, what else shall I set myself for this week?

Rule BrittaniaDate published: 30/07/11

Fine Wine of the DayDate published: 30/07/11

The Perfect Partner for Friday night's fish and chips ?Date published: 22/07/11

Hake, Cockles and Falanghina, Italian food the Bromley way.Date published: 30/06/11

One of the best dishes I've had recently - and a fairly quick meal too !!

Pan fry some Hake ( it works equally well with good Cod),  skin-side down first to get it nice and crispy ( best to get the Fishmonger to de-scale the fish, as the scales go everywhere if you do it at home)

Around 4 minutes a side should work if it's not too thick a piece.

In another pan, lightly sautee some finely chopped shallots in butter, and add a good splash of Falanghina.

Next add some Cockles ( you may be thinking kiss-me-quick hats, but believe me cooked like this they taste like clams !!)

Finish off your Cockle sauce with cream, and a sqeeze of lime. Season to taste.

We like it served with new potatoes, and a wedge of lime.

Best served with Falanghina, Terredora 2010. On offer from £9.99 down to £7.99 when you buy any 2 or more bottles of Italian wine.

Clean and crisp, but with a nice amount of body due to ageing on lees, and a creamy nutty finish, this wine elevates the humble Hake to a new level, and the Cockles are so sweet cooked like this, that you can really imagine you are on the Island of Capri enjoying the view.

Montes Alpha Chardonnay OpenDate published: 25/06/11

As we celebrate the wines of Chile on our tasting counter this week, one of the stand out wines is the delicious Montes Alpha Chardonnay. Rich, buttery and full of ripe tropical fruits, at £9.99 when you buy any two Chilean wines as part of your mixed case. Just one of the superb wines we have open on the tasting counter today.

New fine wine arrivalsDate published: 08/04/11

It is with great excitement that we announce the arrival of some fabulous new Burgundies. We have four superb offerings from Louis Latour: Gevery-Chambertin 2007 at £23, Chateau Corton Grancey Grand Cru 2002 at £35, Puligny-Montrachet premier Cru, "Les Truffieres" 2007 at £32 and the maison's flagship red Corton Charlemagne 2007 at £55. We also have the Domaine Jomaine Pugligny-Montrachet 2009, a wonderfully rich and nutty white. Stocks of these wines are in limited supply so act swiftly to avoid disappointment.  

Black-pudding and apple stuffed PigeonDate published: 31/03/11

It may sound like a MasterChef star turn, but this game recipe is easy to prepare and only takes 20 minutes to cook.  A match with any good Red Burgundy.

Take the skin off some good Black Pudding, chop the pudding up and mix with some diced apple. Then stuff  the Pigeon cavity ( most game butchers will have thoroughly cleaned the bird) with the mixture. Place the bird on a chunk of apple to lift it from the bottom of the pan, and cook for 20 mins in a hot oven, baste the bird with it's juices half way through the cooking time. You'll need one Pigeon per person.

In a separate pan, caramelise some apple pieces to garnish your plate.

Serve with any good seasonal vegetables, especially Spring Cabbage.

Red Burgundy goes brilliantly with this dish, we had it last Sunday with the Nuits St Georges 1er Cru Les St Georges 2004, from Alain Michelot at £25 a bottle; but it would work equally as well with the delicious Bourgogne Pinot Noir Vielles Vignes from Nicolas Potel on offer at £9.99 on 2+bottles, or for a Rioja match you can't go far wrong with the classic Rioja Reserva 2006, Marques de Riscal on offer at £10.99 on 2 or more bottles of Spanish Wine.

Then just tell your guests that you've been having private lessons with Raymond Blanc !!

Bon Appetite !

Food for Thought in PortugalDate published: 18/03/11

The still wines of Portugal are extremely versatile when it comes to food. Reds like the Pena de Pato( on offer at £5.99 on 2 or more bottles) are perfect with stews and mid-week bangers and mash; while the heavier styles like the Churchill Estates Red ( down at £9.49 on 2+ bottles) really complement a good piece of meat. Think Rib of Beef or Venison !!  The Quinta de Azevedo, Vinho Verde ( on offer at £5.49) is a fish lovers gem of a wine; delectable with Sardines ( as the Portuguese do it) or a delicate compliment to classic Moules dishes ( you can try a splash in your pan, with your finely chopped shallots and cream and herbs to create a very Algarve steam to open your mussels) or a light aperatif with canapes.
