Wines to match  £50 for the pair 

White -Pouilly Fume Domaine Franck Millet, Loire, France 

The Sauvignon Blanc grapes are pressed as soon as they are picked. The juice is then allowed to settle, then the alcoholic fermentation begins. The 1998 vintage was the first vintage to see the use of temperature controlled fermentation at the domaine. The fermentation is now conducted between 14°C to 17°C. Low temperature fermentation means a longer fermentation is possible which allows a gentler extraction of primary fruit, which is preserved and defines the character of the wine.

Red – St. Emilion Grand Cru, Chateau Gros Caillou, Bordeaux, France.

These wines are made traditionally with quite long vatting periods of between 5 and 6 weeks in concrete tanks. Fermentation temperatures are checked by hand and refrigeration equipment enables temperatures to be controlled. The wines are then aged in 2 year old casks (10% of which is renewed yearly).
