A very carefully selected wine tasted by us that either punches above its weight or is particularly worthy of recommendation.
Evolving into a beauty. Let it open up in a decanter. Classic, elegant style with good acidity and line like all of Taupenot-Merme's wines. This is great value from this producer who is rising to the top. Still needs more time in the cellar but it can be enjoyed now if you let it breathe. The more we work with this grower the more we want to drink.
Superb Pinot Noir from the Mornington Peninsula. 5 stars James Halliday.
A super-luxury Vacqueyras cuvée made by one of the region's rising stars
Max 3 bottles per customer. Thank you.
Phemonenal! Like a great vintage of Leoville-Poyferre! Let it settle and decant before serving, but keep a bottle or two in the cellar for a few years.
"It sits up there with the very best. The 2007 Restless River Cabernet Sauvignon reminded me of the great Margaret River Cabernets from Western Australia, such as Moss Wood, while the current release, 2009, is classy and stylish, with dark, up-front cherries, berries and plums." Roger Jone, The Harrow Inn, Michelin-starred chef.
Magnificent Bordeaux. "A superb example of wine that reaches its prime in 3 or 4 years and lasts two decades. It’s right up there with their brilliant 2005." 95 points, The Wine Advocate
"Effortlessly beautiful Amarone from Quintarelli's former assistant winemaker" Victoria Moore.
One of the world's great Syrahs. We get agonisingly few cases of this each year, such is the global demand for this from restaurants around the world. Cote Rotie from Stephane Ogier has been hitting the high notes for several years now and is always one of the very best of the appellation. Glorious wine.
"Impeccable Barolo from Renato Corino." - Renato Corino. We second that. It's quite superb. Delicious now with super flavours and complexity.
“The finest Rocche Renato Corino has ever made” 96 points, Antonio Galloni
One of Australia's finest Pinot Noirs. 97pts Jame Halliday - "Super-fragrant, floral bouquet exotic spices, almost into forest floor, perfect balance..Yet is is the length that is the key to this wine. Drink to 2025"
One of the most beautiful most sensual wines we've ever drunk.
95pts - top Italian wine in TASTED Journal with Sassicaia. Beautiful vintage for Cupano Brunello. Cocao dusted nose, herbs, gentle deep and round with excellent structure. Fabulous for the cellar though a wine that you can drink now but will be wonderful from around 2016.
If there's a better Amarone on the planet then.... well, there just isn't!
