Get 2019 off to a spectacular start and welcome in the new year with a cellar full of beautiful bottles.
The three stars of this latest auction are absolutely not to be missed. Three Grands Crus Classés, of which two legendary vintages and one extraordinary bottle: a jeroboam of 1986 Château Mouton Rothschild, 2010 Château Lafite Rothschild and 1989 Château Haut-Brion.
New Year’s Eve without champagne is quite simply unimaginable… Did you give away lots of your champagnes as presents? It’s time to stock up. We have vintage champagnes (Cuvée Belle Epoque 2007 from Perrier-Jouët), magnums (Grande Année from Bollinger), rare bottles (La Côte Faron Grand Cru Blanc de Noirs from Jacques Sélosse), illustrious names (Taittinger), and grower producer champagnes (Le Mont Benoît Extra Brut from Emmanuel Brochet); all you could need for your upcoming celebrations!
Why not spoil your loved ones with large-format bottles? We have magnums of Châteauneuf du Pape from Domaine de la Mordorée, the Cornas Chaillot from Thierry Allemand, and the rare Saint-Joseph from Domaine Gonon, which all make for unforgettable tasting occasions. Have you spotted our double magnums or Clos de la Roche Grand Cru Vieilles Vignes from Domaine Ponsot and Da Capo from Domaine de Pegaü? We’ve also slipped in a single nabuchodonosor: 1985 Château Rauzan Gassies.
If you have decided to devote 2019 to tasting wines that are out of the ordinary, look no further. Let’s picture the dinner of our dreams, starting with a 1996 Pinot Gris Altenberg de Bernheim from Marcel Deiss. A selection de grains nobles which would pair perfectly with salmon gravlax or foie gras. If you want to follow that with fish, we would suggest serving it with one of these rare white wines: Palette 2013 from Château Simone, Arbois Pupillin from Pierre Overnoy, Alphonse Mellot’s Sancerre, or a Pouilly-Fumé from Dagueneau.
For the next time you have game slow-cooking in your kitchen, why not serve it with an Italian wine? We particularly recommend Giuseppe Rinaldi’s Barolo. It will surprise you with its brown colour, its aromas or dried flowers and morello cherry and its powerful body.
For those of you with a sweet tooth, pair your chocolate, coffee, praline and caramel with the Maury from Mas Amiel or the 1978 Rivesaltes from Aimé Cazes. If you prefer fruity desserts, try them with Domaine Tissot’s straw wines, or old vintages of Sauternes.
Wishing you the best for this new year, which is already proving to be full of delicious discoveries…
