Domaine Leflaive

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. 

The domaine was an early adherent to biodynamics, gaining certification in 1997. This dedication to the vineyard and to the winemaking certainly shows through in the wines, where every vintage is different in character but the quality is always extremely high, putting them squarely in the top handful of Burgundy's greatest wines.

We have been able to secure a few of their Grands Crus recently which we can offer at competitive prices:

2 cases of 6 bottles Batard Montrachet Grand Cru, Domaine Leflaive 2008
£1390 In Bond per case

'Here the nose is notably tighter and more reserved with aromas of citrus blossom and zest, spice, smoke, fennel and hints of acacia that introduce big, muscular and wonderfully complex broad-scaled flavors that culminate in a long, focused and explosive finish of breathtaking length and intensity. This should reward at least a decade in the cellar and drink well for a similar period thereafter. This too is terrific and very Bâtard and like the Combettes, the '08 version is one of the very best young examples from Leflaive that I have ever seen. 96 points.' Allen Meadows, Burghound

1 case of 6 bottles Chevalier Montrachet Grand Cru, Domaine Leflaive 2008
£1790 In Bond

'Even after 5 years the nose remains restrained but exceptionally elegant and pure with aromas of white flower, green apple, pear and wet stone. There is plenty of minerality to the rich, full and highly energetic flavors that tighten up considerably on the detailed, minerally and moderately dry finish that displays distinct citrus and mineral nuances. This is still quite tight and linear with huge amounts of dry extract that renders the very firm acid spine almost invisible at present though the hugely finish is clearly shaped by it. This magnificent Chevalier should be a genuine stunner in 10 to 12 years. Note that after an hour of air this really opened up so while it remains very youthful, it's not so tight that you couldn't enjoy a bottle provided that you decanted it for 30+ minutes first. 97 points.' Allen Meadows, Burghound

1 case of 12 bottles Chevalier Montrachet Grand Cru, Domaine Leflaive 2011
£3550 In Bond

'An ultra-elegant, pure and strikingly expressive nose of airy and intensely spicy acacia blossom, wet stone, lemon peel and various white-fleshed fruit aromas. There is a lilting mouth feel to the gorgeously intense, precise and cuts-like-a-knife medium weight plus flavors that brim with mineral and an abundance of dry extract that coats the palate on the hugely long finish. The balance is impeccable and this will be one of the relatively few 2011s that should amply reward longer-term cellaring. 93-96 points.' Allen Meadows, Burghound

Pol Roger 2008

The 2008 vintage for Champagne is exceptionally good and has been eagerly awaited. According to Richard Juhlin 2008 is “an absolutely gorgeous vintage that has it all. I have a hard time imagining anything other than buying everything you see of this vintage."

 

Opus One

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.

Du Tertre

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

2012 Sassicaia

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.

2005 La Rioja Alta Gran Reserva 904

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.
