Autumn is a time to slow down and enjoy the last skerrick of warmth and welcome the cool underlying breeze that brings winter. Autumnal wines want freshness but also an underlying wildness, less bright than a summer or spring wine but not as brooding as a winter wine. This mixed case is designed to be consumed with autumn and that wildness in mind. It includes two bottles each of the following wines;

2018 Complemen'Terre Muscadet Sevre et Maine 'La Croix Moriceau' defines fresh autumnal white. While fresh and salty, it has a wild, dried orchard fruit character. Think quince paste or dried pear roll-ups.

Autumn in the unbelievably beautiful Jura is almost haunting. It's so cut off from the rest of the world, at the foothills of alpine country. There is an eeriness as the locals get ready for a very cold, harsh winter. 2016 Les Matheny Chardonnay while salty and with a hint of nuttiness, holds enough fruit for all to enjoy. Perfect with Comté and if the day calls for it, do not hesitate with a cheese fondue to match.

Chardonnay from the village of Chardonnay! A little more flesh here due to the warmth of the vintage, but still with hallmark cucumber and aloe vera character but just with a little grapefruit pith bitterness on the finish, 2019 Santini Macons-Villages.

This is my value red wine so far for 2021, 2018 Domaine Pierre Morey Bourgogne Rouge. I won't complicate it any further.

The most bizarrely perfumed Grenache I have ever come across. Truly unique. Although so aromatic and pretty the 2019 Santini Grenache Noir will match perfectly with a little aged saucisson or a simple baguette.

Vin Noé produces the cleanest, ripest no sulphur wines I have come across. Wonderfully velvety and inviting, with lovely power. The 2019 Vin Noé Juliénas (Gamay) is best suited for when the wind chill factor takes you off guard.
