The David Gower Wine Selection

The world famous cricketer and Perfect Cellar have teamed up to create the Perfect 6 and Perfect 12 Collections. Peter Morrell reports

A recent prestigious event at Clerkenwell London saw David Gower and Perfect Cellar launch two limited edition cases, the Perfect 6 and the Perfect 12. The partnership stems from David Gower’s love of fine wine and he has personally curated the cases to bring you some of the best examples from selected European producers.

David’s Perfect 6 selection with his tasting notes are

Tendil & Lombardi Cuvée Brut NV

I choose Champagne based on its texture & this is beautifully light and fresh.”

Charly Nicolle Ancestrum Chablis

This is how Chablis should taste.”

Quinta da Calcada Terroir Edition

Delicious flavours that linger on the palate.”

Chateau Matheron Cotes de Provence Rosé

A fine example of the coveted Provencal rosé

Teso la Monja Románico

Big fruit and velvety texture, this is a really lovely wine

Domaine Les Terriens Ainsi Soit-Il Côtes du Rhône

Savoury and refined with soft tannins on the palate, a lighter alternative to Aussie Syrah.”

Peter Morrell, Food and Drink Editor of AboutMyGeneration commented “I have sampled the wines and they are all excellent. The Charly Nicolle Ancestrum Chablis for example has crisp green apple aromas on the nose leading to fresh fruit and floral flavours on the palate with good signs of minerality and it finishes with a lively astringency. Match this with seafood and summer salads.

The Teso la Monja Románico red is a big wine in every sense of the word. Deep in colour it has dark stone fruit in the bouquet and in the mouth is smooth and full bodied with strong spicy tones and well structured tannins. The finish is long and persistent. Ideal with barbecue meats and strong cheeses.”

David Gower’s Perfect 6 is available for £99

David Gower’s Perfect 12 Selection includes all of his favourite styles plus a few additional wines that the cricketing legend chooses for special occasions. Available for £179.95

Included in each box is a Free Signed Book – “David Gower’s 50 Greatest Cricketers of All Time”
