Magnums and other large format bottles are reassuringly big and beautiful, while also providing better ageing conditions. This Fixed-Price Sale includes an incredible selection of ‘great’ wines – great in every sense of the word…
Magnums, jeroboams, imperials… all available at iDealwine’s great wine sale. All French regions are present, from Beaujolais, Muscadet, Provence and the Loire Valley, to the top names of Bordeaux, Burgundy and the Rhône Valley – not to forget a selection from the rest of the world, particularly Italy and Germany. It’s time to impress your friends and share these great bottles…
Wine connoisseurs know that magnums and other large format bottles make wine more beautiful to serve and better to enjoy. More beautiful, because a magnum (1.5 litres), jeroboam (3 litres), or perhaps even a methuselah (6 litres, called imperial in Bordeaux) will look great on your table. Better, because wines from bigger bottles show better, while also ageing more gracefully.
Buying in magnum (or other large formats) is generally preferable. That is why we created this sale, with an amazing large format selection of different wine styles, ranging from Morgon and Fleurie of Jean Foillard and Domaine de La Tour du Bon from Bandol, to the top wines of Burgundy and Bordeaux.
From Bordeaux, this sale includes some of the big names, such as Pape Clément, La Dominique and Mouton Rothschild, as well as other great châteaux wines available at reasonable prices: Tour Haut-Caussan, Clos Puy Arnaud, Haut Carles, Pressac, Belle-Vue, Le Sartre, Bourgneuf and Sociando-Mallet.
There is a good selection of magnums from Burgundy, with delicious reds at very reasonable prices from Irancy of Domaine Colinot, as well as top wines from Chablis’ William Fèvre. Also in white, you will find Domaine Carillon and its first growth wines from Puligny-Montrachet, David Moret (Meursault), Drouhin (Bâtard-Montrachet) and Corton-Charlemagne (a jeroboam of Bouchard). In red, there are some jeroboams (Beaune Grèves Vigne de l’Enfant Jésus and Corton Le Corton from Bouchard) and magnums on offer, including Les Vignes de l’Enfant Jésus 2012, Chambolle-Musigny from Laurent Roumier, Lavaux-Saint Jacques from Gevrey-Chambertin of Mortet, as well as Pommard and Nuits-Saint-Georges from Domaine de Montille.
This sale also includes some of the best Rhône Valley wines. From the North, there are the Crozes from Combier or Graillot; the wines of Saint-Joseph from Coursodon; the many producers from Côte-Rôtie (Guigal, Jasmin, Clusel-Roch, Pierre Gaillard, Bonnefond, Duclaux, Georges Vernay); and selected Chapoutier wines from various northern Rhône appellations. The South features a superb selection from Châteauneuf-du-Pape: Marcoux, Beaucastel, La Vieille Julienne and Pierre Usseglio.
It is no surprise that this sale includes a diverse offer, with wines from a variety of regions: Fleurie and Morgon of Jean Foillard, Moulin-à-Vent of Château des Jacques and several wines from Muscadet’s Domaine de l’Ecu. From Champagne, this sale features Pascal Agrapart and Jacques Lassaigne; from Languedoc and Roussillon, there is a range of top producers, like Clos Marie (Pic Saint-Loup), as well as Montcalmès, Mas Champart, Sarda-Malet and Gauby; from the Loire, there is François Crochet (Sancerre), Charles Joguet and Nicolas Grosbois (Chinon), René-Noël Legrand (Saumur-Champigny), Breton and Domaine de la Butte (Bourgueil); in Provence, Trévallon and Bandol with La Tour du Bon; and Normandy, with the « Argelette” cider from Eric Bordelet.
