What’s new in La Cave at iDealwine:
The new arrivals mostly come from the much anticipated 2016 vintage. The arrival of the 2016 Morgon Côte du Py from Foillard caused much excitement in the iDealwine warehouse! We love this cuvée and admire this domain which never fails to produce fruit-driven wines with velvety tannins and much finesse.
From Burgundy, the 2016 offerings from Joseph Voillot are now available: these Pommards and Volnays are perfect to lie down for a few years. The Mâconnais has a fabulous selection of 2016 bottles from the likes of Domaine de la Soufrandière (Bret Brothers) including many cuvées from the Mâcon AOC (Mâcon-Vinzelles, Pouilly-Vinzelles and Pouilly-Fuissé).
The Rhône Valley also offers up the best from 2016, including some bottles from Domaine du Tunnel. Cornas is producing exceptional wines at the moment and Stéphane Robert is making a name for himself with wines that are silky, refined and concentrated, not to mention excellent value.
As for the Loire, we love what’s come out of la Coulée de Serrant in 2016: this domain boasts one of the most beautiful terroirs in the region. Domaine Vacheron in the marvellous Sancerre is also a sure bet.
If you’re craving some sun, head south. The grands vins on offer here should see you through to summer. The 2016 bottles from Henri Milan are getting us particularly excited, especially at that price…
What’s new in the Must Haves:
Our Must Haves is a small, manageable selection of wines that every collector should have in their cellar and showcases our choice wines from the top winemaking regions. It’s a collection that we update monthly with the latest finds from the latest vintages.
At the moment we love the 2015 Haut-Carles from Bordeaux: a dense, silky and generous wine with excellent structure at an astonishing price for such an excellent vintage.
From the Rhône you’ll find three fantastic references that we strongly recommend trying: the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape from Pierre André, the Coudoulet from Beaucastel and the 2016 Saint-Joseph from Domaine du Tunnel. Fans of Saint-Joseph are spoiled for choice, with offerings from Gangloff, Coursodon, Gonon and Louis Chèze as well as from Chapoutier, Guigal and Delas.
Another bottle on everyone’s lips at the moment, this time from the Jura, is the sublime 2016 La Mailloche cuvée from Tissot: a Chardonnay to rival some of the finest Burgundies.
Also from the Jura is the Corail cuvée from the celebrated Château d’Arlay: this is a truly unique wine made up of 5 local grape varieties (Pinot Noir, Trousseau, Poulsard, Chardonnay and Savagnin). A must try.
Finally, from Champagne you will find the excellent and much sought-after 741 cuvée from Jacquesson, a true favourite amongst wine lovers.
