Among our latest mature vintages are la Grange des Pères from 1998 to 2009, cuvées from Domaine Leroy, and some more original wines like a Jurançon harvested on Christmas Eve and a vin de voile made in Gaillac.
New arrivals from Burgundy
Let’s start with Burgundy, home to some of the most sought-after wines in the world, including Domaine Leroy, represented here by the 2011 Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Les Narbantons and the Pommards Les Vignots in the same vintage. You will also find red wines from Domaine Faiveley, such as the Mazis-Chambertin and Latricières-Chambertin cuvées. From the Chablis region, we recommend you try one of the biodynamic wines from Château de Béru; there are plenty in stock, and this is a rising star of the vineyard. Finally, let’s not leave out the Mâconnais, a Burgundian area whose greatest star, Guffens-Heynen, is available in the form of several fixed price mature vintages.
Grange des Pères in great number
A good twenty lots from the most legendary Languedoc estate feature in this latest selection. La Grange des Pères has been one of the real breakthrough successes in the south of France over the past few years, and here we have a whole selection for you to choose from. The vintages on the shelf at the moment range from 1998 to 2009. Enough to complete a collection…
Great names from elsewhere
From Champagne, lovers of big names like Dom Pérignon won’t want the 2002 vintage to pass them by, nor the 1996 P2 2ème Plénitude cuvée, which was aged for more than 15 years. In Bordeaux, where the wines are made for cellaring, great vintages include 2009 Château Montrose, 2009 Lagrange, and perfectly matured bottles such as Château Haut-Bailly and Calon-Ségur, both from 1993. In the Rhône, several lots of Château Pignan (owned by Emmanuel Reynaud of Château Rayas fame) appear in the great vintages that are 2007 and 2009. Reynaud’s Fonsalette features in 2009 and 2010. Staying in the same region, Jaboulet’s great cuvée, Hermitage La Chapelle, is on offer in the 2006 vintage. Lovers of the Jura should note the presence of Ganevat‘s 2008 Les Vignes de mon Père.
From the Jurançon, we recommend you take a look at this treasure from Domaine Cauhapé: the 2010 Folie de Janvier cuvée. This wine comes from an extremely late harvest, on Christmas Eve, and with the last bunches harvested after the January frost, involving truly tiny yields (6 hl/ha)! An exceptional sweet wine without a doubt… In the same vein, eisweins (ice wines) from the Slovakian Château Belà are available, too. Finally, why not try a vin de voile from the South West? Domaine Plageoles, in Gaillac, produces an excellent one, and it’s perfect if you’re looking to discover something new!
