The entire iDealwine team is very happy to welcome (back) some old friends – a selection of our favourite bottles – which will, for the first time, feature here, in our Must-have collection, as you know, our selection of essential wines which you quite simply must have 😉. Here they are.
Although here we’re using the word “newcomers”, you may have already seen these wines for sale at iDealwine: they are in fact “new” in the sense that they have just been added to our list of wines which any wine enthusiast would be proud to see in their cellar. Enjoy!
Let’s start with Bordeaux, where lovers Merlot lovers will find what they’re looking for in the grands crus of Saint-Emilion, embodied by the Château Pressac. Those in the know will go mad for Roc de Cambes, a property owned by François Mitjavile. Mitjavile puts his every effort into producing wines of the highest quality possible, wines whose elegance never ceases to amaze us. Passing over to the Left Bank, to Château Léoville Barton in the Saint-Julien appellation, who produces wines of remarkable constancy and quality.
In Burgundy, the Gevrey-Chambertin Coeur de Roy from Domaine Bernard Dugat-Py is one of our favourites. This domain, which goes back 13 generations, produces extraordinarily powerful and elegant wines, and this Pinot noir produced from very old vines (between 50 and 99 years old) is certainly no exception! The entire team adored Domaine Sylvain Pataille’s Marsannays, our allocation from a few weeks ago. With his organic and biodynamic-inspired work in the vineyard, natural vinifications and perfectly-mastered élevages, Sylvain Pataille produces excellent wines recognized for their freshness and sophistication. Heading over to the Côte de Beaune, where the house Etienne Sauzet in Puligny-Montrachet produce Chardonnays which combine great purity of expression, finesse and elegance, without losing any aging potential.
In the Rhone valley, we’re proud to present you with the Côte-Rôtie Côtes Brune et Blonde from Guigal, a cuvée which is produced from a selection of the domain’s most emblematic terroirs. Why not try the Cornas Billes Noires from the domain Coulet, which produces extremely refined red wines. We also have the Côtes-du-Rhône from domain Franck Balthazar, a very good, organic domain whose sublime wines perfectly express their terroir.
In the Loire, get your hands on the not-to-be-missed Sancerre Guigne Chèvres – with its quince and citrus fruits notes – from the domain Vacheron & Fils. In Anjou-Saumur, don’t let Nicolas Joly’s Savennières Les Vieux Clos de la Coulée de Serrant pass you by. An excellent, biodynamic domain, which is truly one of the appellation’s best signatures. If you’re getting tired of wine (impossible!), the cider Normandie Sydre Grand Cru Argelette from Eric Bordelet is absolutely worth trying.
Lastly, in the Roussillon, try domain Gauby’s wines, one of the region’s flagship domains. The domain’s “intermediate” cuvée, the IGP Côtes-Catalanes Vieilles Vignes, is the best place to start when getting to know this now world-renowned domain’s wines.
All of the favourites gems of ours – and many more – have just been added to our Must-haves for the first time. Go have a look, we bet you won’t be left disappointed!
