Mature vintages are clearly a signature of iDealwine. This sale differs from our classic auctions and here all prices are fixed (no bids required) but still you’ll find the likes of Petrus, Yquem and Jayer alongside many affordable wines.
The selection of 7,000 wines offers only ready-to-drink wines and collectibles from 1874 to 2005.
Check out the impressive selection of old vintages of Vins Doux Naturels from Rivesaltes, Banyuls and Maury: château Sisqueille 1874, 1947 ; château Mossé 1931, 1945, 1946 ; Amédée de Besombes Singla 1945 ; Pla del Fount 1939… and many more.
Bordeaux starts with a 1935 Yquem, but you might wish to open a legendary 1961 from Léoville las Cases or Ducru Beaucauillou? A 1982 Margaux or La Conseillante? Or more recent Petrus, Cheval Blanc or Latour 1997? For more affordable wines, see the nice selection of superb Sociando Mallet.
In Burgundy, the myths sit alongside very reasonable bottles. Note the Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Saint Jacques from Armand Rousseau in 1988 and 1990 vintage, Vosne-Romanée Les Brûlées 1985 from Jayer, or Meursault Les Perrières 2000 from Coche Dury. If you really want to make the big jump, see the several vintages of La Tâche! With more reason, you can also get hold of Aligoté 2000 by Pierre Morey or Mercurey 2005 by Albert Bichot.
In Rhône, Beaucastel, La Landone, Giraud, Pierre Usseglio, Jaboulet are all present in several mature vintages. Champagne displays a few large formats as this methuselah of Cristal 1990 and jeroboams of Drappier Carte d’Or 1990. In bottle, you’ll find the most sought-after cuvées: La Grande Année de Bolllinger, Charles Heidsieck’s Blancs des Millénaires, les Enchanteleurs from Henriot, Avize Champ Caïn 2005 from Jacquesson…
Enjoy the vast choice and find the vintage of your dreams to drink, lay down or offer.
But remember, don’t wait too long, the best offers are flying quickly!
