Don’t miss the 2008 and 2009 vintages from the nephew of Henri Jayer. It took a literal explosion to make this area plantable with vines, resulting eventually in a wine that’s surprisingly lively and concentrated. This 1er cru will age magnificently over time.
This was an excellent vintage for Burgundy’s Pinot Noir, so this is an especially characterful one; it deserves a few years in the cellar to best reveal all its charm. Dujac leaves its own delicate print on this splendid Côte de Nuits.
One of the most vibrant interpretations of this well-known terroir in Morey-Saint-Denis. Harvested in whole bunches, this cuvée has a noble nose of both fruity and vegetal aromas.
Here’s a chance for you to taste a mature vintage from this landmark Alsace estate. This is a rare cuvée, too, as the king of complantation has here produced a glorious single-variety wine.
2011 is the vintage, and the choice between Pinot Gris and Riesling is left to you. These four lots all come from the very same grand cru, whose name means “Sun Mountain”. Indeed, a sunny climate is what allows the grapes to reach the right kind of ripeness for making flavourful wine.
You’ll find six different vintages up for auction this time, giving you an opportunity to discover (or rediscover) the legendary Angélus. These wines open up on the palate, full-bodied and full of character, with an admirably elegant underscore and good levels of concentration.
To organise an exceptional vertical tasting, we have what you need: twelve different vintages from this legendary Pauillac premier cru. Its finesse will blow you away, along with its aromatic complexity. Plus, its impressive mouthfeel leaves room for an extensive ageing potential.
This Pauillac estate is home to some of the most renowned wines of the 1980s, and here you’ll find a whole host of them waiting for your bids: 1982, 1985, 1986, 1989…Powerful, structured, and highly charming.
The champagne that best demonstrates the style of this globally recognised vigneron. Its complexity, its intensity, and its perfectly controlled oxidative notes are all distinctive of Selosse and worthy of a place in your cellar.
A limited edition from this historic Champagne house, Prélude has a special shimmer to it, both in the glass and on the bottle…
