This week, we’ve got a special treat for you. Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, Château d’Yquem, Figeac, Bollinger, as well as domains Emmanuel Rouget and Didier Daguneau – to cite only a few – are available on the iDealwine website, in ready-to-drink vintages.
As ever, our Bordeaux and Burgundy selection offers only the very best. The great 1999 vintage features in DRC’s incomparable grands crus, Romanée-Conti and Richebourg. Emmanuel Rouget’s iconic Cros Parantoux, an exemplar of balance, vibrancy and concentration. In Bordeaux, you’ll fall for an exceptional vertical of Château Mouton Rothschild: 1981, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2004 and 2009…
The Rhône valley’s Châteauneuf-du-Pape await you in their finest, ready-to-drink vintages. Château Rayas’ white – 2003, 2004 and 2008 – will delight you with its unctuosity and balance; the perfect pairing for this season’s dishes, for instance a pike quenelle. For bottles with lots of aging potential, turn to Henri Bonneau’s Réserve des Célestins. The depth and complexity of the 2009 will amply reward a few years of aging.
With Christmas and New Year fast approaching, prepare yourself with enough bottles to share with friends and family: lots of 12 bottles of Château Figeac 2005, Château Pavie 1995 and Carruades de Lafite-Rothschild 2000 await you.
We’ve also hidden a few extra special, rare bottles in this catalogue, with, in pride of place, Bollinger’s Vieilles Vignes Françaises 1989 and the mythic Cuvée S 1997 from Champagne Salon. In the Loire, don’t miss out on the Clos du Calvaire 2008 from Dagueneau or Edmond Vatan’s Clos de la Néore 2006, a sublime Sancerre.
Beware: as always, our mature vintages sales are based on a first come, first served basis! Happy shopping 😊
