2012 Maison Williams Chase Nuits Saint Georges


The favourite of my wife Kate whose taste I could never question(!). The rich, gamey flavours reminded me of the reds I like to drink at home in Herefordshire, pairing beautifully with duck.

Tasting Notes

Bright medium red in colour, the nose on this wine is dominated by red fruits (strawberries and raspberries notably). Hints of mocha with a touch of elegant wood smoke finish it off. It is supple and slightly sweet tending towards a gamey nuance. It finishes with structured tannins held together by its moreish savoury quality.
