  1. Bollinger La Grande Année Champage 2007

    Bollinger La Grande Année Champage 2007

    €127.95

    A rich lemon colour in the glass, the fermentation of the base wine in oak and a long period of maturation in bottle is immediately evident in the colour of this 2005 Bollinger “La Grande Annee”. Whilst the aromas of this Champagne are not particularly pronounced, there is a persistent chalkiness, enlivened by wild flowers and apple aromas. A somewhat reticent toastiness and brioche sweetness appears slowly with a hint of ginger.

    Gorgeously rich and luxuriously creamy on the palate, this 2005 Bollinger “La Grande Annee” retains balance by offsetting the richer peach, brioche and toasted notes by including the acidity and flavour of a red apple’s flesh and that persistent chalky minerality. There is certainly power here, but nuance too and few vintage Champagnes offer length greater length than this 2005 Bollinger “La Grande Annee”. Learn More
  2. Chateau Langoa Barton St. Julien 2010

    Chateau Langoa Barton St. Julien 2010

    €135.00

    Exceptionally fragrant this year, this Ch. Langoa Barton wine displays enticing aromas of both red and black fruits. The fruit continues strongly on the palate, but the wine retains a very fine elegance, while the tannins and acidity imbue it with an excellent structure, and there is excellent persistence and length on the finish. I usually find that I prefer Léoville-Barton to Langoa Barton at this early stage but this is an exceptionally fine Langoa; it may well be in the lead for now.

  3. Sena, Aconcagua Valley, Chile 2010

    Sena, Aconcagua Valley, Chile 2010

    €135.00

    "Superb aromas of black currants, rose petal and mint. Lavender and stones too. Full body with incredible fruit density. Complex, yet it's agile and bright. Tannins are perfectly polished. It builds on the palate and shows the structure of a first growth Bordeaux but remains so Chilean. A blend of 58% cabernet sauvignon, 15% carmenere, 12% malbec, 10% merlot, and 5% petit verdot. From biodynamically grown grapes."

  4. Penfolds RWT Shiraz 2011

    Penfolds RWT Shiraz 2011

    €160.00

    ear in and year out there is an understated quietness to this wine that speaks volumes about the style, as everything is working together as one; the fruit, the oak, the tannins and the inherent complexity of some seriously old vine Barossa material shines through; freshness, vitality, harmony and ageworthy are just a few descriptors that do this excellent rendition of RWT justice.

  5. Vega Sicilia Tinto Valbuena 2011

    Vega Sicilia Tinto Valbuena 2011

    €165.00

    The 2011 Valbuena was fermented plot by plot, something they started after a deep soil study in the 2010 vintage. 2011 was a very warm and ripe vintage in the zone, and the challenge was to keep the freshness. There are more black fruit aromas, subtle spices and hints of complexity, as well as tertiary aromas that are quite classic and turn more balsamic with time in the glass. Again, this is very different form the 2012 Alión, rounder, riper, richer, more polished, mellow, soft, quite exuberant and hedonistic. 170,000 bottles produced. A couple of weeks before my appointment at Vega Sicilia, the big news broke: Javier Ausás, long time technical director at the Vega Sicilia group (recently renamed Tempos Vega Sicilia, a name that is a little pompous if you ask me), was leaving. A few days before I went, his replacement was named: Gonzalo Iturriaga. Who? That's exactly what everyone thought too! Iturriaga is an agricultural engineer with some experience in Ribera, one year in the early days of Alonso del Yerro, and then five years in Extremadura in charge of the wines of Habla, an ambitious project in a southwestern zone of Spain off the beaten track that didn't really take off. He spent his last five years selling yeasts and other oenological products for the French company Lamothe-Abiet, a CV that a priori looks a little poor for someone who is taking over the most prestigious winery from Spain. But let's give him time -- it will take a few years until we see any of his wines in the market -- and hope for the best. Other than that, they are releasing Único 2007 and 2008 before they sell 2005 and 2006, as the former are lighter vintages, and the latter are more powerful and require/benefit from some time in bottle. After tasting the wines, I followed the opened bottles and was a little worried to see that the wines showed plenty of oxidative aromas the day after, not what I expect for wines designed for a long and slow development in bottle.

    DECANTER - Rich dense colour, big meaty wine with good florality as well as rich fruit, a big wine, very ripe for this vintage.
    Steven Spurrier, Decanter, April 2013

    JANCIS - Blackish purple. Lots of minerals on the nose. Tight and taut and almost painfully tart but there is energy here certainly!
    Jancis Robinson MW, jancisrobinson.com, April 24 2013

    PARKER - Some of Lynch Bages's tell-tale cedary, black currant, earth and spice characteristics are present in the 2012's moderately intense bouquet. This wine exhibits good purity, a healthy dark ruby/purple color and medium body. There is a slight deficiency in the mid-palate, but it recovers sufficiently and offers up a decent finish that tails off ever so slightly. This good to excellent wine could use more fat and charm in the mid-section. Cellar it for a couple of years and drink it over the following 12-14 years.
    Robert Parker - Wine Advocate - Apr 2013

    Wine Spectator - Pure and racy, delivering a core of violet, cassis and cherry, well-framed by a sleek, iron-coated structure. Features a long, taut, focused finish. Shows the austerity of the vintage, but this remains long and pure, with fine cut.

  9. Louis Roederer Cristal Brut Champagne

    Louis Roederer Cristal Brut Champagne

    €220.00

    Out of stock

    Sleek and slender with an abundant freshness. Immediately seductive yet remains a true Champagne classic. It combines freshness, energy and an almost chalky mineral quality. The Cristal signature is evident. Purity, precision and the harmony of flavours associated with the restrained power of their historic vines, located on the finest Champagne Grand Cru terroirs. Cellar Master Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon sums it up better than anyone, “It is a blue sky, without any clouds” Learn More
  10. La Mondotte, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2006

    La Mondotte, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2006

    €345.00

    Stephan von Neipperg's tiny jewel of a vineyard 12 acres produces the ultimate garage wine from 50-year old vines. A candidate for the wine of the vintage, this blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc is a big, concentrated effort of extraordinary intensity and richness. A sensational bouquet of sweet blueberry, black raspberry, and black currant fruit interwoven with scents of charcoal, incense, graphite, and pain grille is followed by an extraordinarily intense, full-bodied, amazingly concentrated wine displaying elevated tannins in the finish. It is another uncompromising effort meant for long-term cellaring.
