Embrace your adventurous spirit! From Europe, we have superb bottles from Roagna and Angelo Gaja (Piedmont), and the Tokaji Eszencia cuvée from the Hungarian Domain Disznoko. From further afield are cuvées from the Harlan Estate and Penfolds. We are also proud to present the wines of Egon Müller, a renowned German producer, for the first time at fixed price!
As we’ve insisted throughout this year, an alternative way to travel the world is to enjoy the produce of countries far-flung and nearby from the comfort of your own home. This fixed-price selection focuses on wines made outside France, a way to develop more eclecticism in your tastes and appreciate the expertise of wine makers across the world.
Starting with the wines of Europe, we have quite a selection from Portugal, Italy, Hungary, and Spain…so where will your organoleptic journey take you first? The famous domain Roagna, an Italian Barbaresco icon, is here to spoil you with cuvées including Pajé, Solea, and Montefico…the 2011, 2014, and 2017 vintages are our favourites! From the northern region of Piedmont we have wines made by Angelo Gaja. The 2013 Sori Tilden cuvée, named after the producer’s dear grandmother, is balanced and delicate. From Hungary, how could we not cite the Tokaji Eszencia from domain Disznoko? This veritable nectar is available in its 1999 and 2007 vintages. We are also proud to offer a selection of wines from Egon Müller, a renowned German producer, for the first time at fixed price. Moving south to sunnier climes in the Castilla y Léon region, we have two cuvées from Bodega Aalto, which impressively figures among Bettane & Desseauve’s top 100 domains in the world.
Steering off the beaten path somewhat, let’s head further afield. Do you know much about wines from Australia, New Zealand, Chile, and South Africa? The Australian star Penfolds won’t let you leave before trying the BIN 389 Cabernet Shiraz cuvée, or indeed the Grange Bin 95. If you’re after a large format, you can count on some fantastic magnums from this domain! Made to be aged, this 2017 Opus One is the fruit of a prestigious collaboration between Mondavi and Philippe de Rothschild, a wine straight out of California. If it’s sunshine you’re craving (who can blame you?), the Gran Enemigo cuvée from El Enemigo might be just the ticket, here available in its 2013 vintage.
