The release of Opus One every year is always exciting as it is such a popular wine globally. First produced in 1979 by Robert Mondavi and Baron Philippe de Rothschild, it has become perhaps the most well-known and popular Cabernet Sauvignon-based wine to come out of the Napa Valley.
Domaine Leflaive has been producing some of the finest white wines from the best vineyards in Burgundy for decades. It is always a pleasure to drink their wines as they have an inimitable spicy character which makes them not only unique in Burgundy, but in the world as well.
A beautiful summer's day like today is not normally the best time to offer red Bordeaux but we thought this opportunity was too good to miss. We have just secured some Château du Tertre, Margaux 2009 which we can offer at less than £30 per bottle on the table. It is not often we come across well-scored, 2009 classed growth Margaux at anywhere near this price so please find below the offer:
Château du Tertre, Margaux 2009 - £274.40 IB per case of 12 bottles
We are pleased to offer the brilliant Sassicaia 2012, at what we believe is the best price in the market.
The 2012 vintage has just been scored 99 out of a 100 by the Wine Enthousiast, surpassing the legendary 2004, 2008 and 2010.
9 cases of 6x75cl Sassicaia 2012 at £480 per case in bond.
As you probably know by now, we are huge fans of La Rioja Alta so we are extremely pleased to offer the latest and perhaps best vintage ever of La Rioja Alta Gran Reserva 904: the 2005.
The 2005 is a great successor to the 2004 and 2001 which were both very popular indeed. The 2005 vintage might just have the edge on the two former vintages but it is very hard to compare, with each vintage having its own personality.
A group of wine trade colleagues and customers convened for a horizontal Burgundy tasting last week at Medlar Restaurant. Following the 2011 White Burgundies (please see the previous blog post), we turned our attention to the 2007 vintage for Red Burgundy.
