It’s been a while since we last organised a sale of mature vintages at fixed price! But they’re back, and we’ve put together a beautiful selection of older bottles – here’s a look at the highlights!
Did you know that iDealwine has been named best online seller of mature vintages by the RVF? Both at auction and at fixed price, it’s difficult to find a more accomplished selection. And to prove we’re worthy of the title, here is a look at what we have on offer in our latest sale of mature vintages.
From Bordeaux, let’s start by highlighting a new collaboration with the prestigious Châteaux Rauzan-Ségla (Margaux, 2e grand cru classé) and Canon (1er grand cru classé), which gives us the chance to offer ready-to-drink large formats directly from the properties. As well as this, you’ll find classic names in superb vintages such as 1989 Petrus, 2000 Lynch-Bages, 1989 Haut-Brion, 1990 Margaux and 1998 Lafite-Rothschild. We also have cuvées at pleasing prices like those from Château Maison Blanche in the 2005, 2008 and 2010 vintages.
From Burgundy, numerous lots from Domaine de la Romanée-Conti await, including cuvées of La-Tâche, Romanée-Saint-Vivant, Richebourg, Echézeaux, Grands-Echézeaux and Corton. This is not the only Burgundian star to make an appearance, though, with Georges Roumier’s 2010 Bonnes-Mares, Domaine Bizot’s Echézeaux from 2005, 2009 and 2010, and Ramonet’s Montrachet in the 2008, 2009 and 2010 vintages. This tempting collection has bottles starting at just €20 with vintages dating back to 1970, an advanced age for a Burgundy wine!
From the Rhône, the most famous Châteauneuf-du-Pape domain, Château Rayas, is available in several vintages from 1994 to 2010. The appellation’s other cult cuvée, Réserve des Célestins by Henri Bonneau is also waiting to be enjoyed. You won’t want to miss out on bottles from Guigal, Chave, Jamet or Clos des Papes either!
For those of you still wondering, champagne can indeed be aged! This is the case for fine champagnes, often vintage bottles, those with all the qualities needed to age well. But there’s no need to wait for years and years: we have a 1996 Belle Epoque cuvée from Perrier Jouet, a 2009 Winston Churchill from Pol Roger, and a 2002 L’âme de la terre from Bedel, all ready to demonstrate just how good an aged champagne can be!
From Provence, we should underline the presence of some of Bandol’s finest cuvées: Cabassaou (2006) from Domaine Tempier as well as a red (2009) from Trévallon.
Beyond the French border, you’re bound to enjoy Giuseppe Rinaldi’s Barolos, Roagna’s Barbaresco, Disznoko’s Tokaji or the famous Californian Opus One Constellation.
