Chateau de Valois Pomerol 2012

The Chateau de Valois Pomerol has intense cassis aromas which are followed by hints of toast on the nose. The palate is full of ripe morello cherries and dark chocolate, with big but ripe tannins and a delicious hint of cedar and vanilla on the long, firm finish. This is a superb value for money Pomerol which can be drunk now but will also benefit from a few more years in bottle. Château de Valois was built in 1862 from the restructuring of the original vineyards of Château Figeac. Today the same family owns it and constantly improves the quality and produces great Pomerol wines. The vineyard was totally replanted in 1956.

Vinification

Fermentation took place in small temperature controlled concrete vats for 28 days, followed by 14 months ageing in oak casks, of which 35% were new oak. The wine aged on its fine lees with no racking.

Viticulture

The double Guyot trained vines have an average age of 25 years. The vineyard soils are made up of gravel and sand with subsoil of iron pan.

Tasting Note
Chateau de Valois Pomerol has appealing fresh and primary fruit flavours with added depth from oak ageing.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
