On your marks, get set, go! Our most recent purchases of mature vintages are now available for sale, and as always, first come, first served… With mythical Bordeaux in the great 1989, 1990 and 2000 vintages, ready-to-drink Clos de Tart and Château Rayas and a wide variety of Clos Rougeard, this sale makes for quite a head-turner!
As you know, when a collector wants to sell some or all of their cellar, he or she has two options: to sell his wines at auction on the iDealwine platform, or to sell the wines directly to iDealwine. These wines are authenticated just like the bottles we sell at auction, before being placed for sale at fixed-price. We recap on the wonderful wines recently added to this collection.
In Bordeaux, after the Easter festivities, why not top up on fine mature wines? The excellent 2000 vintage is perfectly represented by the Châteaux Mouton-Rothschild, Haut-Brion, Lynch-Bages, Domaine de Chevalier, Château La Lagune, Prieuré Lichine, Cos d’Estournel, Réserve de la Comtesse, Château d’Armailhac… Other mythical vintages also feature, for instance the grandiose 1990, which you’ll find here from Château Ausone, Montrose, Pichon Longueville Baron and sumptuous Sauternes: Château d’Yquem, Guiraud, Fargues, Suduiraut and Château de Malle.
In Burgundy, we particularly recommend the sublime Clos de Tart. This Grand Cru monopole, bought by the Artemis group (Pinault) is available in the 1998, 2001 and 2006 vintages. Georges Roumier’s Chambolle-Musigny 2009 should also make someone happy, as would his Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru Les Cras 2008 and Pierre Boisson’s Auxey Duresses Premier Cru En Reugne 2008 or the Chablis Premier Cru Forest 2000 from Dauvissat.
In the Rhône Valley, we strongly suggest you try a bottle of Domaine du Pegaü’s Cuvée Da Capo 2007, one of our favourite Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the Côte-Rôtie Blonde La Garde 1989 from Dervieux-Thaize, the Cornas 2009 from Auguste Clape and, last but not least, Château Rayas 2005.
In the Loire Valley, lovers of Clos Rougeard certainly won’t be disappointed. In Alsace, Marcel Deiss’ Altenberg de Bergheim 1997 is reaching perfect maturity, as is Weinbach’s Riesling Vendanges Tardives 1998, whereas Trimbach’s Riesling Clos Sainte-Hune 2009 could age another few years in the cellar. Finally, we recommend getting your hands on the Château Pibarnon 2003 and Pradeaux 2008: ready-to-drink Bandol is a truly wonderful… Trévallon 2005, 2007 and 2009 are also excellent choices.
