Given its top-drawer selection, this Foire aux Vins is simply like no other, yet just as attractive in terms of price! Discover the surprises we’ve prepared for you with this festival of fine wines (10th September – 1st October).
This year, we’ve rechristened our Foire aux Vins a ‘Fine Wine Festival’: a much more appropriate name, we think, given the selection we’ve curated for you lucky lot. You certainly won’t find our unsold wines, bad vintages or dormant stocks. Quite the contrary, you have before you a discerning selection of top-quality wines, with a wide range of rare bottles, mature vintages, rising stars and attractive prices. The “eclectically excellent” (Revue de Vin de France) selection includes more than 200 cuvées, with discounts from 5% to 40% and prices ranging from €7 to €690. And if this weren’t enough, we are also offering gift cards corresponding to the amount you spend in the sale:
- €10 for orders of over €100
- €20 for €200
- €40 for €400.
As French tradition has it, the Foire aux Vins includes a large portion of Bordeaux wines. Not only will you find prestigious crus classés such as Lafite-Rothschild 2016, Haut-Brion 2016, Yquem 2009, Léoville Las Cases 2005, Pontet-Canet 2016, Léoville-Poyferré 2010 and many more, but also great names from the Right Bank (Tertre-Roteboeuf 2016, Trotanoy 2006, Pavie-Macquin 2016, Pavie-Decesse 2001), Pessac-Léognan (Smith Haut Lafitte 2010, Haut-Bailly 2011, Haut-Bergey, Le Sartre) and Sauternes (Doisy-Daëne 2005, Rayne-Vigneau 2010, Raymond Lafon 2007). You’ll also be able to get your hands on a gem for less than €15, thanks to wines such as Château Bellevue or Taillan 2016, Les Carmes de Rieussec 2012 and Lunes d’Argent from Clos des Lunes.
Our Burgundy offering also boasts its share of fine wines, such as Laurent Roumier’s Clos de Vougeot, Dugat-Py’s Gevrey-Chambertin Coeur de Roy or Henri Boillot’s Volnay Les Caillerets Premier Cru. Don’t miss out on some of our personal favourites: the Gevrey-Chambertin Mes Cinq Terroirs 2016 from domain Denis Mortet and the Puligny-Montrachet 2015 from Etienne Sauzet. Two truly sublime wines. Budget-friendly bottles at less than €20 include the Bourgogne from Pierre Boisson, the Mâcon Milly-Lamartine Clos du Four 2017 from Domaine des Héritiers du Comte Lafon and the Mâcon-Verzé from Nicolas Maillet.
In the Rhône valley, you’ll find a selection of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, some of which are ready to drink and others to leave in your cellar a few more years (Clos des Papes, Beaucastel, Domaine de la Vieille Julienne, Santa Duc), as well as Hermitage, Condrieu and Saint-Joseph such as the cuvée Les Royes du Domaine Courbis.
In other regions, the catalogue abounds with delicious wines such as La Muntada 2014 from Gauby (Roussillon), Pic-Saint-Loup Métairie du Clos 2013 from Clos Marie (Languedoc), Chardonnay Les Graviers from Tissot (Jura), Madiran Château Bouscassé Vieilles Vignes 1997 (South-West) and the Morgon from Marcel Lapierre. An exciting lineup of non-French wines also awaits you, including: the Vin de Constance from Klein Constantia (South Africa), Alion de la Vega Sicilia (Spain), Riesling Trocken Weingut from Fritz Haag (Germany), Château Kefraya 2011 (Lebanon) and Luigi Pira Barolo Serralunga 2014.
But beware, now more than ever, quantities are very limited, and the sale strictly first come, first served. So if you see a wine you like, we suggest you make it yours before it’s too late…
Happy Foire aux Vins!
