From now until 3rd July, iDealwine is giving you a once-in-a-lifetime chance to win at auction some of the most iconic, rare wines ever produced. Whatever the region, whatever the country, this collection has it all: France, Spain, Germany, Hungary, United-States… the list goes on.
In Burgundy, the majesty of Chardonnay is embodied by true icons and the finest vintages, both young and old. Criôts-Bâtard-Montrachet 2005 from Domaine d’Auvenay, Meursault Les Perrières 2010 from Coche Dury and Musigny Grand Cru 2015 from Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé are just a brief insight into the catalogue. You’ll also marvel at our selection of Pinot Noir: DRC Romanée-Conti 2011, Echezeaux 2005, La Tâche 2009, Romanée-Saint-Vivant 2010 and Corton 2010, Jacques-Frédéric Mugnier Chambolle-Musigny and Nuits-Saint-Georges Clos de la Maréchale 2016, Leroy Richebourg 1995, and Emmanuel Rouget, with a magnum of Vosne-Romanée Aux Cros Parentoux 2010.
In an equally mythic region, where producers have been crafting legendary wines from grapes grown on steep terraces since Antiquity. These icons include Guigal (and his La-La trilogy, in the 1990 vintage), Jean-Louis Chave (Ermitage Cuvée Cathelin 1998 and 2000, and a magnum of Hermitage blanc 2010) and Paul Jaboulet Aîné (La Chapelle 1990).
We might only have five Loire references, but together, they represent the quintessence of the region. They are, of course, Edmond Vatan (Clos de la Néore 2012 and 2014), Dagueneau (Astéroïde 1995), Clos Rougeard (Brézé 1995, Le Bourg 1989, Les Poyeux 1986 and 1990), Huet (Cuvée Constance 2003) and Philippe Foreau (Goutte d’Or).
The magic of France is also its variety of regions. In the Languedoc, you’ll find the famed Grange des Pères in the 1998 vintage; in the south-west Parker’s “Yquem of Monbazillac”, the Madame cuvée from Tirecul La Gravière; in the Jura, Les Clavelins from Château Chalon 1929 and 1934; and in Alsace, Trimbach’s fabulous Clos Sainte Hune Rieslings, in various vintages from 1973 to 1995.
Further afield, you’ll find Germany’s finest Rieslings from Egon Muller, Robert Weil and Helmut Donhoff. Their various interpretations of Trockenbeerenauslese (in the 1921, 1933 and 1971 vintages) are truly liquid gold. Spain shows her character with Vega Sicilia’s Unico, probably the nation’s finest wine, whereas the United States are selling us the American Dream, with an unprecedented selection of bottles from Sine Qua Non.
