Opus One

We are pleased to offer Opus One 2012 at £875 In Bond per case of 6 bottles, which makes it the least expensive vintage on the market.

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.

The 2012 vintage has been generally lauded by all the major critics and Opus One has already been given 97 points by James Suckling and 96 points by Antonio Galloni. Robert Parker has not released his note on the 2012, but has this to say about the 2012 and 2013 vintages: 'Both vintages are clearly the two greatest years for North Coast Bordeaux varietals - and probably Chardonnay as well - since the wonderful duo of 2001 and 2002.' High praise indeed. 

Please find below our offer. Allocations have been reduced this year so do please let us know as soon as possible if you would like some to avoid disappointment.

Opus One 2012, Napa Valley
£875 In Bond per case of 6 bottles

‘Glorious purity of fruit here with blackcurrants, blueberries, dark chocolate, fresh herbs and forest floor. Hints of mint. Full body, seamless tannins and wonderful balance. Tight and compacted tannins with beautiful fruit and great length. Hazelnut and chocolate. Goes on for minutes. One of the best Opus in years. Compacted and beautiful. Hard not to drink now but better in 2018. 97 points.’ James Suckling
 
‘Rich, powerful and seductive, the 2012 Opus One blossoms in the glass with superb textural richness and volume. Dark red and black fruit, smoke, cedar, new leather and tobacco all meld together as the 2012 shows off its personality. Fine, silky tannins support the huge, creamy finish. The 2012 has just been bottled, but it is superb. I expect the 2012 will offer a long and broad drinking window of pure pleasure. 96 points.’ Antonio Galloni
 
The wines will be available in November. Please note that delivery charges might apply if you would like the wines delivered to a non-warehouse address.

E&OE September 2015.
 
Best wishes,

James & Mark

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.
