  • Vieux Château Gaubert 2009, Graves, 13% vol, Double Magnum, 300cl

    Vieux Château Gaubert 2009, Graves, 13% vol, Double Magnum, 300cl

    CL59

    The Haverlan family bought the property in 1988 and the wines made here are delicious. Very sound reds, fleshy with plenty of solid black fruit, mature tannins and creamy oak.

     

    The cépage is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Merlot from 16 hectares of vineyards on classic Graves gravel soils. The harvest is carried out by hand followed by a careful selection of the fruit before a temperature controlled fermentation and lengthy maceration period.

     

    The wine is ages for 18 months in oak, 40% of which is new. 2009 was a superb vintage.

     

    **A Double Magnum – 3 litres, or the equivalent to 4 bottles – in an individual, branded wooden box.**

  • Taylor’s 1977, 21% vol, 75cl

    Taylor’s 1977, 21% vol, 75cl

    PT31

    Like all Taylor’s great vintage Ports, Taylor’s 1977 is a blend of wines from several vineyard estates, in particular Quinta de Vargellas and Terra Feita.

     

    Quinta de Vargellas is pre-eminent among the wine estates of the Douro. Located in the wild and hilly eastern reaches of the valley, it has been prized as a source of the finest ports since the 1820s. Today it ranks among the great vineyards of the world.

     

    Like those of Vargellas, the wines of the beautiful old property of Terra Feita are an essential component of the Taylor Vintage Port blend. The wines of Vargellas, sophisticated and aesthetic, provide elegance and finesse with their wonderfully pure and complex fruit, characteristic scent of violets and sinewy but beautifully integrated tannins. The wines of Terra Feita, on the other hand, express a sensuous hedonism and earthiness. Their dense blackberry and cassis fruitiness is overlaid with wild herbal aromas, tarry notes of liquorice and tobacco and a palate crammed with thick mouth- filling tannins. It is the harmony and tension between the contrasting styles of these two great properties which fundamentally define the character of Taylor’s Vintage Ports.

  • “HaLo” 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, Trefethen Family Vineyards, Oak Knoll District, Napa Valley, 14% vol, 75cl

    “HaLo” 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, Trefethen Family Vineyards, Oak Knoll District, Napa Valley, 14% vol, 75cl

    USR14

    Eugene Trefethen and his wife Catherine purchased 600 acres in 1968 to create Trefethen Vineyards. At the time, there were fewer than 20 wineries in the Napa Valley which put the Trefethens in a small group of wine families dedicated to a vision of crafting world class wines from Napa Valley. Their first wine was released in 1973 and at the 1979 Gault Millau World Wine Olympics, their 1976 Chardonnay won “Best Chardonnay in the World”.

     

    Rich fruit, crafted in an elegant, age-worthy manner are the hallmarks of the Trefethen style.  The third generation is now active with Loren and Hailey poised to put their generation’s stamp on the Trefethen motto of ‘One Family, One Estate, One Passion.’

     

    HaLo is the Trefethen flagship wine and is named after Hailey and Loren. Made only in exceptional years, production is tiny. 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot and 1% Merlot from the finest lots of Trefethen’s “Hillside” vineyard.

     

    Extremely dark in appearance, the complex nose has aromas of blackberries and bay leaves with hints of tobacco and mint in the background. There is also the scent of smoke and a touch of forest floor. The palate is rich and juicy with flavours of plums, chocolate, cinnamon and hazelnut. Layers of flavours give way one to the next with cloves, chocolate, plum, raspberry and gamey spice. The wine is wonderfully textured with great structure.

     

    The bottle is made of extremely heavy glass, and the label a real work of art, based on an original piece crafted out of hand painted wine foil by French artist Gérard Puvis.

  • “Cuvée Léonie” Brut N.V., Canard-Duchêne, Jeroboam, 12% vol, 300cl

    “Cuvée Léonie” Brut N.V., Canard-Duchêne, Jeroboam, 12% vol, 300cl

    CH08

    Named after Léonie Duchêne, one of the founders of the company, “Cuvée Léonie” is reserved for independent wine merchants and the world’s finest restaurants – we have listed it for several years and it has been our House Champagne since 2011.

     

    The blend is 50% Pinot Noir, 25% Pinot Meunier and 25% Chardonnay with reserve wine accounting for a significant proportion of the total (25%). Extended ageing in the cellar (3 years) adds depth and complexity.

     

    “All the elements are there: the buttery brioche aromas with top floral notes, the depth of flavours and the finish. It’s the way that it’s all presented that sets it apart. ‘There’s a driving blast of fine mousse, a powerfully zesty mid-palate, and it all develops into a long dry finish”

  • Château Rousseau de Sipian 2009, Cru Bourgeois Médoc, Impériale, 13% vol, 600cl

    Château Rousseau de Sipian 2009, Cru Bourgeois Médoc, Impériale, 13% vol, 600cl

    CL69

    60% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon.

     

    This fine property comprises a beautiful 19th century house, parkland and some 15 hectares of vineyard. Under British ownership from 2000 until recently, a huge amount of investment has gone in to restoring not only the house but also the vineyards and cellars. The results of this are plain to see.

     

    Produced from 20 year old vines, the grapes are hand picked and carefully sorted in the vineyard. Fermentation is in temperature-controlled cement vats for a period of 3-4 weeks followed by 12 months ageing in oak, 60% of which is new.

     

    The 2009 is a classic Bordeaux vintage, very dark in appearance with a nose full of ripe fruit and elegant cedar notes. The palate is dry and broad with restrained cassis flavours, a touch of liquorice and warm spicy notes. The tannins are soft but support the wine well into the long finish.
