Mature vintages | Tasting wine in its prime

Why wait for a wine to reach its peak when you could get your hands on a mature bottle directly from us? We have myriad vintages from Bordeaux properties, exceptional Burgundy crus, and some amazing discoveries from Alsace…

In the Bordeaux region, though it would be helpful to the harvests if some real rain arrived, there has been a veritable shower of mature vintages. Château Les Ormes de Pez (Saint Estèphe) opens the show with a dazzling vintage, the 2009, also available in 1991 and 2007. The 1978 cru bourgeois Château Coutelin-Merville is typical of the Saint-Estèphe appellation and will undoubtedly be tempting to those who were born in that year. Otherwise, what would you say to a classic Château Carbonnieux in its immense 1982 vintage? We’ve also got bottles of this wine from 1986, 1987, 2000 and 2003.

Château Siran, the classic Margaux bursting with power and finesse, is up for grabs in several vintages starting from 1986. Are you looking for a dessert wine? We’ve got just the thing! Château d’Arche from 1990, or indeed a 2001 Château d’Yquem, this being a legendary year for a legendary property. And Château Haut-Brion is represented by a 1993 imperial bottle, the sort of thing that appears every once in a blue moon…

Burgundy also has some gems to offer. Among the selection of fine, cellaring wines is a 2010 Romanée-Saint-Vivant Les Quatre Journaux by Louis Latour in magnum format (because there can never be too much!). There’s also a 2008 Volnay 1er cru Les Caillerets from Domaine Henri Boillot. If you’re more of a fan of white, we recommend the 1974 Chevalier-Montrachet Les Demoiselles, a bottle straight from the cellar of Domaine Louis Latour in an individual, wooden box.

There’s plenty of choice from Alsace, too. The excellent 2000 vintage is represented by the likes of Domaine Schlumberger’s Clarisse cuvée (Pinot Gris) and Clos Saint Theobald Rangen de Thann, a Gewurztraminer from Domaine Schoffit. And we mustn’t forget the famous Marcel Deiss, from whom we have a lovely, little vertical with his Schoenenbourg and Altenberg de Bergheim crus from 2008, 2009, and 2010.

From the Rhône, why not be generous with a Methuselah of 1996 Hermitage Chante Alouette from Chapoutier. We also have a classic 2006 Côte-Rôtie Château d’Ampuis, one of Guigal’s treasures and a bottle that’s likely to attract a lot of interest…
