  1. Chateau d'Yquem 2010 375ml
    Chateau d'Yquem 2010 375ml
    Picked predominantly over 10 days from October 14, the 2010 d'Yquem has 141gms/L residual sugar and pH 3.80. It is a slow-burner, the nose understated at first but unfurling with each passing moment with subtle scents of freshly sliced apricots, Clementine, clear honey and white flowers. There is an underlying minerality that really defines this bouquet. The palate is similar to the nose, revealing hidden facets with almost each swirl of the glass - orange blossom, limestone, white peach and honeysuckle. This is such a precise d'Yquem; it is after you have swallowed the wine that one comprehends just how brilliant it is. (98+) WINE ADVOCATE

    Chateau d'Yquem 2016 375ml

    PRE ARRIVAL - DUE EARLY 2022
    Containing 135 grams per liter of residual sugar, the pale lemon-gold colored 2016 d'Yquem leaps from the glass with honeyed apricots, pineapple, green mango, crushed rocks, candied ginger, coriander seed and citrus peel with hints of orange blossom. The palate is very tightly wound, vibrant and refreshing with layer upon layer of minerals and spices, finishing with epic poise and persistence. (98+) WINE ADVOCATE

  3. Forteto della Luja Brachetto 2018 375ml
    Forteto della Luja Brachetto 2018 375ml
    Undoubtedly the best Brachetto Passito wine made in Italy, magically combining not just sweetness and lusciousness but also grace and refinement, not to mention uncommon depth, length and complexity. IAN D'AGATA

    This is a highly unusual wine, Brachetto itself isn't well known and most are made in to lightly frizzante sweet wines. Like Moscato d'Asti. This is a traditional style, still not sparkling, that has to be drunk to be understood. Brachetto smells and tastes of strawberries, the colour is the same in young wines. Floral and alluring. I always forget it's there until I see it on the shelf. One of those wines every one of our customers should try and least three or four times, a year. It is remarkably graceful and so digestible.

  4. Lafaurie Peyraguey 2019
    Lafaurie Peyraguey 2019

    Sauternes, Barsac

    Purchase En Primeur. Arrival due September 2022.

     

    Bright and effusive, with terrific persistence, the 2019 Lafaurie-Peyraguey is so alluring. Tangerine peel, passionfruit, mint, pineapple and a kiss of new French oak are all beautifully delineated. Even with all of its intensity, the 2019 remains gracious and light on its feet. Superb. Tasted two times. Antonio Galloni 96

  5. Doisy Daene 2009
    Doisy Daene 2009

    Denis Dubourdieu has provided one of the genuine stars of the vintage with the Chateau Doisy-Daene, two, if you count his Extravagance. This has a very fragrant nose with apple blossom, lime leaf and a touch of honey. Very fresh and lifted...spring-like. The palate is very well balanced, not a powerful Sauternes but ethereally poised and focused, skipping blithely to an animated pear, honeysuckle and apricot finish. Very pretty, very complete and very outstanding. (98) NEAL MARTIN

    The last time I tasted the 2009 Doisy-Daëne, I felt it was in a dumb phase. This bottle suggests that it is no longer in that phase! It has a lovely bouquet with honey, white peach, nougat and light marzipan scents, growing in intensity with just a touch of lavender. Wonderful definition. The palate is very well defined with superb concentration, a surfeit of botrytis, tangy marmalade and quince notes with a touch of ginger enlivening the finish. What an outstanding Doisy-Daëne! Tasted at the vertical at Doisy-Daëne. NEAL MARTIN, TASTED 2022

  6. Fronton red La Colombiere Vinum Negrette 2020
    Fronton red La Colombiere Vinum Negrette 2020
    STAGE 17 -  MOUNTAIN - SAINT-GAUDENS > PEYRAGUDES 130 KM

    Just 30 mins north of Toulouse, some of France's rarest vines are painstakingly nursed back from extinction by husband and wife team Diane and Philippe Cauvin. Diane took the reigns of the family estate after learning viticulture and completing a tour de force throughout French vineyards including Burgundy. All made by hand with particular focus on the native negrette and biodnymically farmed since 2006.

    Cranberries and sour cherry with a white pepper top-note greet you from the sunny and warmth filled glass. There is a generosity in the mouth with fleshy red fruits, the lightest touch of citrus pith and red cherries. The mid-weight style works well and no oak, just concrete tanks preserves the fresh cut flavours on the palate nicely.

  7. Royal Tokaji Blue Label 5 Puttonyos 2017 500ml
    Royal Tokaji Blue Label 5 Puttonyos 2017 500ml
    The Blue Label is the producer's best-known classic Aszú wine, sold as Red Label in the USA. A refreshing nose of citrus blossom, elderflower, marmalade and ginger spices. Refreshing acidity balances a comparatively light palate of apricot, bruised yellow apple, tangerine peel and white pepper. The sugar level sits at 158 g/l, which is well-balanced by the crisp mineral acidity (7.9g/l). SYLVIA WU, Decanter

    The 2017 Tokaji Blue Label 5-Puttonyos is a selection of the finest Aszú berries from across the region. This is the cuvée where I was expecting more on the nose, which seems a little taciturn at the moment and, despite my allowing the sample to aerate, never quite clicks into gear. The palate is a different matter: poised, intense and lightly spiced, with a gorgeous viscous texture. But surprisingly, of the six cuvées that I tasted from Royal Tokaji this vintage, the Blue Label is the one where I wanted more. NEAL MARTIN, Vinous

  8. J de Joliette NV
    J de Joliette NV

    Regarded as one of the premier producers in Jurançon, Clos Joliette was founded in 1929, when the Migne family cleared forest in a natural southeast-facing amphitheater to plant a hectare of vines.
    The result has been an incredible selection of complex and aromatic off-dry wines, reflecting the reputation Antoine Gerbelle bestowed on the domaine as “the Romanee Conti of the South-West France”.

    What makes these wines so sought after is the combination of three unique aspects. First, its location. With only 1.85 hectares Clos Joliette sits at 300m altitude, on the slopes of the hill of Beauvallon (Commune of Jurancon). The vines were planted in 1929 by Madame Migné and exposed to the East and South-East in a natural amphitheater, allowing the grapes to capture the gentle morning sun, rather than afternoon heat.

    Second, an atypical terroir made of clay-silica, pudding stones, Ponto-Pliocene pebbles and crossed through by a vein of iron.

    Third, the wine itself - a single varietal 100% Petit Manseng, treated with minimal intervention throughout vinification, no fining or filtration, and long aging in oak barrels for 4 to 6 years.

  10. Coutet La Chartreuse de Coutet 2015 375 mL
    Coutet La Chartreuse de Coutet 2015 375 mL

    Quite a smokey nose but a lot of ripe mango flavors, too. This balances a rich texture and bright acidity very nicely. The finish is long for a second wine. JAMES SUCKLING.

    Plenty of botrytis adding marmalade and exotic fruits to the engaging mix of citrus oil, stone fruits and fresh flowers. I feel like there is a little more Sauv Blanc here, than may be typical, due to this exotic, tropical fruit and ginger flower component, I couldn't find the cepage though, so just a guess. It's not overly sweet, but there is enough thickness and viscosity to leave no doubt as to what you are drinking. The acidity plays its all important role in keeping things upbeat, fresh and clean. The finish is impressively long and carried by the sugar while being enlivened by the acid. Excellent and supper value. ROSCOE

  11. Le Tertre du Lys dOr 2019
    Le Tertre du Lys dOr 2019

    Shimmers medium gold. Vibrant notes of toffee, ginger and baked pineapple aromas waft from the glass. It's still incredibly youthful with touches of honey starting to emerge adding another layer to the luscious palate. Spiced nectarines mix with subtle hints of marmalade and umami notes of white button mushrooms in the mouth, alongside ginger, toffee and apple tarte tatin flavours - it's intriguing and incredibly delicious. The finish is mouthwatering, a trickle of acidity cleanses on its way out. This generously sized bottle of Sauternes should be shared lavishly with friends and a plate of cheese. Don't hesitate here. GABRIELLE POY, PWS
