WOW, FANCY SEEING YOU HERE. IT’S SO CRAZY, I DIDN’T EVEN PUT ON MAKEUP TODAY, JUST, LIKE, TOTALLY ROLLED OUT OF BED, I MUST LOOK A MESS… No. Not really.

No. Not really. Obviously we are here in our new home, our glorious new website, after months of suffering at the hands of the web development and SEO gods. How will our lord and saviour Google Search look down upon our humble attempt to build an e-commerce platform? Only she knows.
Did I spend an ungodly number of hours in the Noble Fine Liquor basement sitting on three wine boxes stacked on top of each other to bring you all this fabulous content? Yes. Did I cry? Only a couple times. Do I need a drink? Abso-fucking-lutely.
So: drinking about it - that’s what we’re gonna do, and correct me if I’ve not pronounced this right, ISN’T IT.
Domaine Mosse, Moussamoussettes. The only wine more annoying to spell than the word Mississippi, and at least Mississippi has a little jingle to accompany. Repeating consonant overload or not, Rene Mosse makes some good goon and the Moussamoussettes is no exception. Sparkling rose with a bright, persistent bubble and just a tickle of fruity, juicy character that lingers only for a moment, only to disappear into the night again, much like the men I keep meeting on Hinge. I digress.
Axel Prufer’s white wine is totally slept on and I blame all of you and your insufferable demands for juicy light reds (it’s me. I’m all of you). It’s mostly chardonnay and a bit of clairette from a freaking limestone plateau, my guy. Do you know where else makes chardonnay on a limestone plateau? Burgundy. Yeah. You know, that goon you drink when your brother in law’s posh dad comes around for the holidays that tastes fucking incredible with lobster. What I’m trying to say is, it slaps, and you should drink it and maybe treat yourself to some prawn cocktail or something, you deserve it.
Ok. We all know what’s coming next and I can already hear a few of you grumbling to yourselves in the background there, oh haven’t you already used this one in a mixed pack before, running out of inspiration I see here, Nelles I will have you know we are CHOOSING to put this wine in every mixed pack we’ve ever made because that is just the type of stans we are. Christophe Foucher is a gorgeous little forest creature who must be protected at all costs, his wines are like little universes unto themselves, where unicorns exist (and aren’t just a metaphor used by obnoxious wine dudes to describe wine they think they’re supposed to like) and nymphs and fairies float around the vineyards and sprinkle quartz and silex and make everything wonderful and delicious. It’s sauvignon blanc from the rolling hills of yada dada yada it’s all written somewhere else on the website, I trust if you care enough you’ll find it.
Lele wines - if somebody as self conscious as Liam Kelleher can make goon this good, so can you! Not really. You probably can’t. But that’s why you buy it from other people. I’d be lying if I said we weren’t all a little surprised at the success of these guys, given it’s Liam’s first vintage making wine (some incredible reisling, notably) on his own, but succeed he did and delicious it is, with heaps of tropical fruit and just a little pithy spice about it. It’s good, and we congratulate him sincerely on a first vintage so well done (we’re serious this time!).
Vrille et Papillon Canon d’Achille - how’s this for feeling bad about your accomplishments or lack thereof, the kid who makes this is literally 14. Meanwhile, I’ve been ghosted by more than one internet-therapy bot. What makes it all ok is that this wine is so delicious it will, in the words of my lyrical wordsmith of a colleague Sam, “slither down your gullet like a pelican feeding.” Incredible stuff.
Damien Menut honestly deserves so much more than this, and I’m sorry to this man for lumping him in with the literal chaos that’s taking place on this screen. His cabernet is lovely, it’s dark-fruited with structure and herbal spice and you can trust us on this because, well, you’ve made it this far so you must find something redeeming about all of this. And for that I ask you, u k hun?
So there is it - the first Noble mixed pack on our new and improved site, done, dusted, and probably requiring electroconvulsive therapy to undo the lasting traumatic effects of. Stay for a browse, maybe chuck a couple things in that cart, smash that order button, and remember, it’ll all be OK.
