Today marks the beginning of a Private Collection which is somewhat special for us, as it’s part of the cellar of one of iDealwine’s most loyal customers (he’s been following us since 2002!).
You will see that this cellar, lovingly set up in the South-West of France, contains the finest stars and specialist wines, all of which are often in excellent mature vintages. Trust this passionate oenophile and skilled taster: these are all finely crafted wines which he would have liked to keep for himself. This is also the reason for which many of the lots are single lots: he has others, but he couldn’t let go of them…
The crème de la crème of Rhone wines
You will find everything that Rhone enthusiasts could possibly dream of… Among the magnificent Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the Réserve des Célestins from Henri Bonneau (1999, 2000, 2001 and 2010), the cuvée Marie Beurrier (1995, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2010), La Plume du Peintre from La Mordorée (2003), Château Rayas (2000), le Clos des Papes, La Janasse… Sublime Côtes-Rôties are also for sale: Guigal’s LA-LA-LA, Jamet, Gangloff, Delas, as well as the finest Hermitages (J-L Chave) and Cornas (Auguste Clape, Alain Voge, Thierry Allemand, domaine du Tunnel), but also Crozes-Hermitages (Graillot, Combier, Delas) and last but not least, some sumptuous Saint-Joseph from Guigal and Coursodon.
The finest, ready-to-drink Burgundy
The choice of both red and white wines is incredible: mythical wines in ready-to-drink vintages. Among the mythical signatures, those from DRC (Echézaux), several bottles from Coche-Dury, the famous cuvée Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Amoureuses from Georges Roumier, Leroy, Armand Rousseau, Emmanuel Rouget, Méo-Camuzet, Domaine d’Auvenay, Comte Georges de Vogüé, Domaine de Montille…
Bordeaux in the best vintages
This cellar also contains the biggest stars of Bordeaux in several old vintages (Petrus, Yquem, Haut-Brion, Margaux, Lafite-Rothschild, Mouton Rothschild, Latour, Angélus…), the best classed growths of 1855, particularly the mythical 1982 and 1989 vintages, second wines and the finest Sauternes (Fargues, Guiraud, Suduiraut, Rieussec…) with a special mention for the grandiose 2001 vintage. Magnificent.
Fine vintage champagnes, foreign wines and gems from every vineyard
The seller is a Champagne lover and that can be seen in the champagnes in this collection. The best signatures and cuvées are present: Selosse, Bollinger R.D, Krug, Cristal de Roederer…
In other viticultural regions, the choice is equally impressive, with rising stars from each appellation: La Grange des Pères in the Languedoc, Clos Juliette in Jurançon, Dagueneau, Clos Rougeard and Richard Leroy in the Loire, Hugel, Marcel Deiss and Zind-Humbrecht in Alsace, as well as sumptuous foreign wines and ports.
